Yes and no my learned friend,yes as in you correctly on depleting n content and no as with the 1st time around being the slowest rotation combined with rapid growth I need the cows around quickly to maintain grass quality for subsequent rotations, I'll put 100kg/ac of the bag stuff for 2nd rotation .With greatest of respect, I think what happened was you just depleted the soil nitrogen reserve for a round. No free lunches in this game in my opinion.
Sheeps worth 20 acre of silage to me, with rent at £200+ I just bite my lip and carry on. The best grass manager round here will have his ewes and lambs on til end of March and still be cutting silage 3rd week of May.I'm at the cutting edge,I'm so far behind I'm now infront
I'd no fert on the first time around this year,no sheep on either,,how many sheep would I need on to pay the fert saving
I thought Lakeland held the NI price at 24.5p, Dale Farm dropped 0.25p to 24.55p (includes 0.3p members loyalty bonus) but Lakeland have no transport charge, Dale Farm have a combination of stop and volume charges which are at least 0.5p/lAgriland says lakeland are up 0.25. Id have thought Dale farm could have held it. Are they both equal now?
Yes 2p for October, November and December supplies, Lakeland are 3p for November and December, but remember that the money for that was accumulated over the peak supply months... no such thing as a free lunch!Paid this morning,Lakeland 24.5p. Does DF not pay 2pence extra Oct milk?
Exactly.the "bonus" is only our money that they have saved up over the year off base price and they choose to give it to us in those months.Yes 2p for October, November and December supplies, Lakeland are 3p for November and December, but remember that the money for that was accumulated over the peak supply months... no such thing as a free lunch!
