It was very good, but still not clear how I persuade my sucklers to actually use a self locking yoke rather than standing just shy of it. Probably best just replace it with a manual one I think. 18 months of TB testing has made them too savvy.

How do those of us who are levy payers but who aren't on faceache get to hear about these talks, please?

I haven't had any notification by post, and understand that AHDB is going to drop contact with their levy payers who don't have access to all singing/dancing broadband, too.

Nice set up. The Morris headgate is great although it's possible to take out the vet's teeth with the second handle if they're not watching out!

If you don’t hear about this stuff, your details must be wrong at their end. A posted invite is probably not practical at £2/throw. Printing and posting etc. Reckon if you have an email address, it is correct and they have permission to email you - you should hear of this stuff.

Disappointed that the Miriam Parker follow up is restricted to dairy levy payers on a first come first serve basis, mid-day and only offered to folks who subscribed to the Temple Grandin webinar

It’s not. The just the meeting on 24th Feb is restricted to Dairy farmers.

If beef folks but their name down, they are considering doing beef ones. It just may be a bit later. The challenges on dairy handling can be very different to beef - hence it makes sense to have a meeting for either one of the other.

It isn’t a webinar, it’s an online discussion group for 30 people - a one off. Very different. They get emailed a link.

You email [email protected] saying you are a beef levy payer who saw the Temple Grandin webinar and would be interested in a beef version of the above. They will add you to a list. If there’s demand, they will look into setting a beef one up.

A discussion of dairy farmers will definitely focus on different things to beef farmers.
 

Early moves to target wild oats

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
