Any one know is afbi hillsborough still doing grass analysis prior to cutting? Heard they’d stopped some services. Failing that, does anyone know who would be able to do it at short notice i.e. tomorrow morning if I run some samples in?

I gave up on them. Bloody slow to return reports. Plenty of feed reps on the road with nitrate strips to test in the field now or you can buy them yourself online.

I think the detailed weather map on the Met office is the most accurate or the TV weather reports. If you watch it online you can freeze the reports to try and follow the direction the rains moving!
