    Re: Gifts of ag land - CGT

    I have no idea if its still the case, but my father had a tenancy granted to him on the farm by his father before he died, and then inherited the farm, and the tenancy reduced the tax payable (this...

    Re: Gifts of ag land - CGT

    The laws on trusts have tightened up considerably in the last 10 years. You used to just be able to put stuff in and it was out of your estate immediately, and it cost nothing. Now you have to pay...

    Re: tedder/rake?

    If you are making the quantity of forage that means something bigger than a haybob/fransgard390 type machine is required, I'd go down the dedicated machine route. I make around 200 acres of hay per...

    Re: Gifts of ag land - CGT

    CGT - as said above, hold over relief is available, so the whole lot could be transferred to you right now for zero tax payable. Or as you say blocks could be transferred each year without using...

    Re: Food diet fat v sugar

    Yes, for a very short period of time, when it was in season. Not every day, 365 days/year, as we do now. And fruit contains natural fibre, which affects the way the sugar is absorbed into the body -...

    It may be as old as the hills, but its a truth the modern nutrition and health industries have forgotten. Our bodies have not evolved to deal with complex carbs, farming only started 15000 years ago,...

    I think anyone who eats food will eventually die, its rather unavoidable. Its whether there is any link between the cause of death and what they ate thats at issue. The point is that farmers and farm...

    Re: Confused about Barn Lighting

    Personally I'd go for metal halide floodlights. Cheaper to run than halogen ones, but better light than SONs, which is a very yellow fuzzy sort of light. I did a 120x40 shed with two SONs at each end...

    Re: will there ever be a shortage of food again?

    In a word, no. Because the worlds population is already 7bn+, and forecast to stabilise at c. 10bn, due to the fact that as people get wealthier they have less kids. The Chinese are already hitting...

    If you do hay rather than silage then give serious consideration to a V rake for rowing up on ridge and furrow land. I have some of that and my V rake is brilliant - the wheels just follow the...

    If you can cope with the compromise that is a Haybob (or similar type) then the Fransgard is a perfectly acceptable step up. I have one that I use for a specific hay making job (lots of narrow...

    Re: Small square baler

    If you are looking to spend that sort of money you can't go far wrong with a Welger. Though I'd also say a JD 459 is a very nice baler, makes a very good square bale. I've had one for 4 seasons now,...

    Re: Small square baler

    An MF 124/128 if you can get one. Better bet than a New Holland, which while there are loads about can be the very devil to stop turning out banana bales.

    Ditto! The shoot on my place currently pay roughly 3+vat/acre over 700 acres, including 15 acres of woodland. Another 10-15 acres of cover crops @ 100/acre. If I'd suggested 4/acre+vat and...
