please add your ideas :)

i'm in for ploughin....straw burning....indoor lambin....pigs indoors



Scuffling. Over and over the ground again and again pulling up squitch grass in hot weather to let it dry up and die.
And it all raking up under the chisel plough so you had to drag it next to the hedge and then push it under in reverse.

Muck spreading and leaving it about 8 inches deep all over the field.

Cutting a shallow furrow across the field to divert the effluent over flowing from the pit so that it could irrigate the grass in a hot spell.

It’ll be reet.

TBH.......i'm serious about some of it

take straw need for slug pellets and i'd never heard or seen blackgrass till 10 yrs after it's ban.....think of the chemical saved....chemical now leaching into water courses

livestock units are to big now.......vast outdoor pig herds concentrated over small temporary field areas are far worse IMO than smaller housed units spread over an area next to their straw supply and muck spreading areas.....same with dairy

ploughing is just common sense....without glyphosate min till/direct drilling is fecked
