What’s it worth?

I hope you've taken the advice on this thread and confidently put £2k reserve on it. (y) :rolleyes:
Hahaha. Yes there’s a decent reserve on it.

There’s currently 5 live bidders in it and stags have craftily times the auction to end at 7:15pm Sunday so hopefully the interested bidders might have had a drink or two by then and have an itchy bidding finger!

The run up ramp looks quite shallow on it but what keeps the sheep on the top deck,from the picture the last bit of the deck folds down onto the ramp but doesn’t look long enough to be the “gate” on the top deck @Jerry please?

This is my only slight concern. There is a gap above the ramp when raised but I don’t think it’s big enough to be a real major concern.

Once the main gates/rear door is raised there’s only a small gap.
 
Sold the old one for £1.5k.

Collected new one today.

very pleased with how it rides and tows. Just got to get it muddy now by filling it with sheep.

You have bought a good trailer there. I have one much the same for the last seven years or so, still really tidy. Has moved a few cattle and sheep with no real problems, that one has led lights by the look of it? Shame to get it dirty! Will outlast a new Ifor many times over.

I’ve moved thousands of welsh ewes and lambs and exlana lambs and ewes and never had 1 jump out of the top bit or even look at doing it.
I‘ve had the same trailer since Aug 17 and really like it! Only issue/thing I’d change is an easier way of locking and unlocking the lifting tail gate when your inside and made a Fort Knox of gates to guide flighty sheep in you’ve got to climb over to flick the catch

Edit,
Scrap that I can see they’ve made a much better handle system - hopefully you can turn it from standing on the inside.

Wonder where I've seen that design of lock before 🤔

Variety ‘watch list’ for wheat yellow rust released

Written by Charlotte Cunningham

AHDB has issued a yellow rust watch list to help flag winter wheat varieties most likely to perform out of line with the disease ratings published in the Recommended Lists. Charlotte Cunningham reports. The watch list, which orders varieties based on yellow rust levels from the three worst RL trials (for each variety), can help identify those most likely to benefit from closer monitoring, says the levy board. It follows the development of a new rating calculation approach that better reflects the diverse and dynamic nature of the UK’s rust populations, announced at the launch of the online edition of the RL 2021/22 in Dec.
