    Small farms with smaller herds copped with that year a lot better I do admit, But then it did not come off the back of this winter we have had

    We've been quoted £150 a ton delivered for 'Meadow' Hay in big bale form this morning, need something to try and stretch the Silage out. Thoughts?

    60 tons of my wheat has gone to a big shoot in Wales , to feed the 1000s of pheasants that will be shot by the likes of Clarkson and Botham . It’s another market for grain, but probably won’t please some livestock farmers.

    Sorry they are not mine .but my eyes tell me they are very light .but not lighter that those Dorset farmers thought worth over £50 in that auction down there back in March. As always it's The South West farmers that seem to run price control that evryone else has to follow
