Funnily enough it was his first day! Have to laugh at the clothing some of them turn up in. Even some of the regulars don’t wear wellies or waterproofs. 1 of the women was refused entry onto the bus the other day to go home because her clothes were so muddy.
You don’t supply waterproofs and wellingtons to encourage your staff to work in foul weather it will increase productivity at harvest time gives them a feeling there are appreciated and they will work harder for you . you give a little bit to gain a lot . This has been proven at one of the largest veg growers I get involved with. It’s a win-win situation. If you supply it with your logo on it it’s tax relief on it as well.

How does it work with tax, surely they are not all self employed? Cant believe you can get that number of staff for two hours for £20, do they get a free veg pack to or anything, it would barely cover fuel and washing their clothes after, you must be expecting a massive labour cost increase soon.

First milkers out to grass and the sun is shining.... great effort by the new team.

Can you think of any other picture that is likely to bring 2' of snow and a permafrost until June?

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

court-640x360.jpg
A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
