It didn't have much shape. I thought it was a blessing in disguise when he escaped from being penned up in that polly tunnel!


My dad always said NEVER to touch a bull on his head as it naturally makes them nasty and come at you. In all honesty some people should never ever own Bulls .
Yep a neighbour used to breed limmy bulls I used to cut his corn if I went in the shed where his bulls were and stroked them on the head I got a telling off

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.
