Wireless thermometer


Anyone got a recommendation for a wireless thermometer? Not really looking for a fancy weather station, just a thermometer that I can get far enough away from the house to give a decent reading, with a display inside the house. The last one I had kept disconnecting and was more trouble than it was worth. Thanks

I've had a couple of decent Oregon ones over the years, but as part of a budget weather station. One lasted 15 years and the second is about 10 years old and still going. Batteries last a year or two.


This sort that aldi and lidl do are fine. I just put a cover over the outdoor unit to keep the rain off it.
My cover is made from the bottom half of a 4 pint milk fitted upside down. :)


Thanks, that's funny as my one that gave trouble was an oregon one. I think protecting the sensor is probably the answer, as it did work ok for 6 months, then kept disconnecting.👍

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
