No I haven't, but if you and glasshouse think it's only worth £30 perhaps your in the wrong job or perhaps doing something wrong, let's face it, all he does is whinge, and you seem to spend your time touring the country looking for ground, on the other hand the other day you said you could sell up and put I think £500,000 in the bank from the sale of your sheep, in which case I think its just a case of you want something for nothing. Funny how farmers on fbt's pay a decent rent and just get on with the job instead of this constant whinging.

Thank you, was beginning to feel like the village idiot, they've all objected to paying a decent rent, but no one's come forward and said they would be happy to purchase land and rent it out at what they offer.
No one has objected to a “decent” rent. If the grass is good, well fenced, no ragwort or thistles, water on tap etc, a good rent can be paid.
But the bulk of grazings offered never are.

RSPCA have no legal power as I understand, and they too would be obliged to get a vet to do an official inspection as they are not qualified to do so. My understanding is that the RSPCA don't have much interest in farm animals any longer.
No income stream to be generated...

And RSPCA have no powers of Inspection either... Bunch of busybodies in many cases.
 
Not read the rest of it because I’ve just done a long day.

But the RSPCA are a bunch of clueless c*nts and their inspectors shouldn’t be allowed near a goldfish let alone anything else.

Just f*cking c*nts who ruin people’s lives based on clueless nonsense and an attempt to make as much money as they can so they can pay the bell ends who are in charge large sums of money.

You didn’t even bother replying to me. Which seems to format when anyone makes a good point that doesn’t stack up with what you say.

You’ll probably pull it apart now.
 
Ps I purchased land and I let it out for free to a young couple trying to get ahead in farming. Stock fenced, watered, new reseed and a barn on it plus rail way carriage.

I must be an idiot I guess.
No, apparently no one purchases land and expects a return on it from rent, so you've done the right thing, the idiot is surely the woman who bought the 1000 acres and is rewilding it, I mean who on earth earth would buy something and then go for maximum return on their investment.

Until she tries too sell it in a few years and finds she’s devalued her asset once the government subs on it end (which they will)

You really are a pretty unpleasant person to discuss anything with.

You just speak to folk like they are stupid / c*nts.

Try not to take offence at that, I’m just being honest.

I don’t think you read my post at all. She’s not making maximum return on her investment at all. She has pulled all income streams out and is making nothing.

Do you grasp how many laundering works ?

The point of my post is that different ground in different areas has a huge variance in parameters. And so therefore there is a huge variance in rental value.

Due to non production factors leading the way in setting land value these days, there is far less of a variance in land purchase value.

Renting land out is only one income stream and way of capitalising or adding value to the land.

Only an idiot would but land with the sole
Idea of making it pay them back by renting it out for farming. There are far better investments of merely looking for that kind of return.

I’m still trying to work out why you have such an issue.

I pay from £0 to £100 an acre. I also pay from 20p to 50p a head / week. Different ground has different values.

The Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) alongside the Farm Safety Partnership (FSP), has named new farm safety champions and commended the outstanding work on farm safety that has been carried out in the farming community in the last 20 years.

Two of these champions are Malcom Downey, retired principal inspector for the Agri/Food team in HSENI and Harry Sinclair, current chair of the Farm Safety Partnership and former president of the Ulster Farmers’ Union (UFU).

Improving farm safety is the key aim of HSENI’s and the FSP’s work and...
