1. Farmers, growers, processors and industry representatives are being asked for their views from 31 August for 10 weeks on the role of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

    The AHDB is a UK statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. As we leave the EU, there is an opportunity to ensure that the sectors that the AHDB covers are as competitive as possible. This review will look at the AHDB’s purpose and priorities, its strengths and where improvements need to be made.

    This is a joint 10-week exercise covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The request for views will close on 9 November.

  1. " Sold " about a dozen bales of hay to a couple of horsey folks last June.
    Not been paid for.
    Not been collected.
    No contact from them whatsoever.

    Head says fudge um, sell them elsewhere.
    Heart says it would be polite to contact them and ask if they still want them........

    Would probably get more for them re advertised after Christmas too......:whistle::finger:

  2. Until you've contacted them they are sold. Just my view.

    If they refuse /can't pay then they are yours again.

    It would have been polite if they had paid and picked them up!!

    But I tend to agree with @holwellcourtfarm, I would give them a buzz (provided you can contact them, of course).
    At least if they show up with pitchforks, you can honestly say you tried to contact them about completing the purchase.

    Sell them, it's their duty to collect. If they are not paid for they are still your property.

    At least you still have them, if they were collected and not paid for then your fudged. Call them, if they don’t want them, then sell them, easy, you can’t ever be accused of being the bad guy then.

    They are taking the pi$$ though, so don’t be to polite on the phone! :p

    I think you have entered into a verbal contract with them.
    Contact them and see what the problem is.

    We had a similar thing with a neighbour, who still hasn't paid for nor collected his 50 bales after two years, despite us leaving emails asking when he could collect. They've probably seen hay at a lower price which they want you to beat, oh, and can you deliver and stack them at no extra charge ?:mad:

    Depends who they are, I have a sliding scale of prices; at one end there is w***er tax - which can be variable.
    At the other end there is M!lf discount - which can also be variable.

    Ring them and see.
