    Re: CAPPING AGRICULTURAL SUBSIDY SUPPORT

    You can't do it by acreage or headage, I would just limit the size of claims to 100K or something.

    Similarly, any claims below 10K I would just cease paying it, make the system a lot less...

    Re: Brexit reality

    Anyone who voted to remain because of the envelope of the CAP or they didn't want an 8% price hike on Lexions is so short sighted it is beyond description of the English language.

    Re: What slurry is best?

    The beauty of solids is that they can be hauled out at reasonable cost, and tipped in fields nearly any time of year in nice heaps which can be spread quickly.

    Slurry is heavy, as mentioned above...

    Re: What slurry is best?

    Few arable farmers will pay you for the slurry at present, the economics of arable farming are under some strain.

    The only advantage of separated slurry is that you have less liquid to deal with,...

    There will be no farming subsidies in time, and it would be a mistake to think that any political party of any colour has ever really concerned itself with winning the rural vote- since the majority...

  9. Re: Does anyone bother about BVD status when buying in cattle?

    I don't think it is just BVD, Tesco etc are now stipulating that their producers have various health and disease control plans in places, is it Johnes disease that is now stipulated?

    Grass weed control per se this year I would say has been far less successful than previous years. The mild winter allowed grass weeds to grow untouched for months, and when we finally managed to get...
  11. Re: Wolf re-introduction survey for livestock farmers

    I can think of few things less desirable than the release of wolves in any part of the UK. Perhaps releasing a horde of bears or maybe a few thousand mink- oh wait, that has been done already.

    Re: Gove for PM.......?????

    I can't see Gove getting the job, he doesn't have the personality, he strikes me as a 'messer'.
