They wouldn't be doing it if there wasn't an arbitrary date imposed with no consideration of the weather or ground conditions. Nobody is digging potatoes today as the ground is too wet but they can wait until a dry spell comes, you don't have that option with slurry. It goes out now or you store until February!Farmers are doing their industry a massive disservice spreading slurry a day like today. Causing runoff pollution and making a mess of roads, which they can't be bothered to clean up - and yet we are trying to convince our local customers we are the best in the world. Unfortunately it looks like it will take further action to bring the industry into line. . Will be interesting to hear what our customers think when we ask for financial support in the wake of a bad Brexit. As a private customer myself, I'd say let them rot, on the strength of what I see today.
