Death & Taxes

As the old saying goes, “in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes”…………. When you die your Estate may be subject to Inheritance Tax, however, having a well drafted Will and an Accountant or Tax Adviser who understands your financial affairs can help reduce the burden. At J H Greenwood & Company we understand the impact that Inheritance Tax can have on an Estate and the importance of advance planning in order to reduce this liability. We have qualified, experienced staff who can calculate your potential liability and make suggestions of what you could do in order to reduce this. The death of a loved one is an extremely stressful time. Relatives have certain formalities which they need to take care of including the distribution of the Estate. In many cases Probate is required before assets can be transferred. Probate is effectively formal approval by the Court allowing the Estate to be distributed to the Beneficiaries. Probate work was previously restricted to the legal profession however J.H. Greenwood & Company are one of the few firms of Chartered Accountants licenced to carry out this work. As Accountants and Tax Advisers we are able to deal with the Probate Application and any tax implications. Confidentiality is one of our core principles and you can be assured that your affairs will be dealt with in a professional manner. For further information or to discuss matters in more detail, contact Mark McLeman on 01289 302463.

Talking......... Business

November 2017 Ben Burbridge is a rural practice surveyor with Edwin Thompson LLP based in the Galashiels office. He provides professional advice to clients throughout southern Scotland on a range of rural issues.

The Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016 comes into effect from 1st December 2017, this creates the Private Residential Tenancy (PRT) and it will replace Assured or Short Assured Tenancies for all new residential tenancies. The driving force behind the Act was the perceived need to protect tenants in a growing Private Rented Sector and give them security of tenure. The PRT is an open-ended tenancy which will last until a tenant wishes to leave the property or a landlord uses one (or more) of the 18 grounds for repossession, unlike under a Short Assured Tenancies where two months’ notice is required. The grounds for repossession include mandatory and discretionary grounds. They include; the landlord intending to sell or carry out major refurbishment; the landlord wanting the property to occupy himself or as a home for a member of his family or to use for non-residential purposes; tenant breach or antisocial behaviour or failing to occupy the property; if the property let was linked to the tenant’s employment, that employment has ended, etc. Other key changes include the introduction of a new model tenancy agreement, inheritance provisions in the event of the death of a tenant, rent review provisions that limit rent increases to once every 12 months, rent pressure zones, tenancy disputes, including actions for recovery of possession, will no longer be dealt with by the Sheriff Court and will come under the jurisdiction of the new First Tier Tribunal (Housing & Property Chamber). There will be no more pre-tenancy notices, such as the AT5, but use of the Tenant Information Packs will continue. Deposits will still need to be lodged under an approved tenancy deposit scheme and Landlords will still need to comply with Landlord Registration. The exceptions to the legislation include properties let with two or more acres of agricultural land, if the property is let subject to a relevant agricultural tenancy, holiday lets, property let at low rents, etc. Existing tenancies and all tenancies created prior to the commencement of the new Act will continue to operate under the current legislation. When an existing SAT comes to the end of its contractual period post 1st December 2017, its continuation will depend upon the wording of the lease. If the lease is silent on what happens after the initial term, tacit relocation will apply, and the tenancy will continue as a SAT. However, if the initial term is followed by a month to month rolling extension, or is extended by agreement between landlord and tenant a PRT is created by default. In addition to the new tenancy legislation is the issue of energy efficiency, a consultation concluded in June 2017 into energy performance standards in private rented property. This may see further regulations to private property and the introduction of minimum standards that a property must reach before it can be let. This may have substantial cost consequences for older rural property and should be factored into any proposed refurbishment project. The changes in legislation are relevant to landowners and farmers who let surplus dwellings to either employees or tenants and they need to be aware of the impending changes and the consequences that they have for recovering vacant possession, reviewing rents and resolving disputes. The new legislation seeks to simplify the system overall whilst providing good tenants with some security by restricting the grounds under which the landlord may seek possession – primarily by removing the “no-fault” ground when the initial term of the tenancy has expired. Ultimately, the message must be that all private landlords now have to comply with the relevant legislation and there are penalties for failure to do so - if in doubt, those letting any form of property should take professional advice. For further information please contact Ben Burbridge (Galashiels office) on 01896 751300

GUESS WHAT? I’M BACK IN HOSPITAL AGAIN.

Wendy writes

No sooner is one problem fixed when another appears. It happened Sunday week ago, I had been over to Synton to pull a shed for Tim Aynsley. This is an interesting situation with me parked well above the hen house, pulling up a bank. After a bit of a struggle to get into position, entirely his fault as he got confused between high and low range and 4 and 6 wheel drive. Stupid idiot - time he gives up I think and lets a younger person take over. He managed to sort himself out and realise the error and without further ado I crawled up the slope ready to pull. That went without a hitch and we were soon on our way home. It was a beautiful morning and with the wind rushing through me we were soon home. We called in at Sawmill Cottage where the young ones are going to live - some Cottage!! On stopping she came rushing thinking I was on fire as there was a considerable amount of smoke coming from my rear wheel. Brakes sticking I think, hence the reason I am back in my private hospital. He and she are away for the week so I can rest Pulling at all angles, never a here in the care of AB Wight without fear of insult or interruption. problem Before they went I had a busy time, first over to Penicuik to pull a shed for David Stoddart. This was a tough one, the spades went deeper and deeper, my front wheels started to come off the ground before the building started to move. Then the next day to Tim Aynsley near Selkirk and on the following Wednesday I pulled the shed at home. I am booked to go to Gosford, near Aberlady on Thursday the 14th and back there again on Wednesday November 22nd. I hope Andy fixes my binding brakes NEW AND USED SPRAYERS SUPPLIED and I am out of here and on the road again very soon. I will not let my All types of sprayer service work undertaken Spades in as far as they customers down. will go. All parts supplied

The future of farming lies in competitiveness and profitability. The MASTER range concept with its advanced features will contribute to a quick return on your investment. The Kuhn plough will allow you to: • Maintain a high-quality soil structure with an efficient burial of organic matter and an even aggregate spread throughout the soil profile – crop yields will be increased. • Have at your disposal a wide range of working width settings and an excellent overall manoeuvrability - “in field” costs will be reduced. • Benefit from a number of technological innovations such as the reinforced box section, the variable width, and the plough structure protection systems (Hydraulic non-stop or traction bolt) - the working life of the plough is increased, and maintenance costs reduced.

Alnwick Properties Attention all landlords and estate managers in England From April 2018 all domestic and commercial property that is being let out needs to meet the Government’s minimum energy standards of an energy rating of E or better. Scotland is still looking at this matter. If domestic or commercial property has an energy rating of F, G, H or worse then you cannot let out the property. This has major implications for landlords, letting agents and estate managers because finance companies, bank and building societies will not allow the property to be used as security if it cannot be let out due to it’s poor energy rating. Plus, private landlords will end up with unlettable properties. Alnwick Properties can complete draft EPC reports for your properties now so you can look at what needs done to get your properties up to E ratings or even better. Alnwick Properties are commercial and domestic energy assessors for England and the Scottish Borders.

Talking......... from Lincolnshire

November 6th 2017

Will Howe is an arable farmer from Sleaford, Lincolnshire. The soils are predominantly heavy. 365ha of cropping includes winter wheat, spring barley, winter oilseed rape, spring beans and managed fallow. He also manages a contracting business Thorpe Farming Ltd. I am not sure what criteria need to be met to constitute a drought but I think this recent spell of dry weather would certainly qualify as a “British� version. But despite the land being as dry as a bone on top, there is still residual moisture under the surface. In fact the soil surface is so dry that a disc drill demo was curtailed due to the fact that it could not get deep enough to give me my 32mm of settled soil coverage over the seed. You might wonder about the precise seed depth but it is what is recommended by the chemical multi-nationals to safeguard against the heavily stacked pre-emergence sprays we apply. The good news is that I have finally drilled some wheat. In my quest to delay the drilling by as much as possible to ensure there was adequate time to spray off any germinating blackgrass, which by default should mean there is enough moisture to allow the sprays to work, has ended up being a case of proper farming; gut feeling. The land was dry enough to drill but too dry for the spray but given the calendar date I decided I had chanced my arm for long enough and drilled most of it. Fortunately the long range forecast was wrong and the 15 mm we got 24hrs ago is perfect. Dust direct drilling winter After last year being plagued by late movement of all crops this year has got off Where the drill man ran out to a bad start. The beans due to go on a boat last month are still sat in the shed. of starter fertiliser. Money wheat into spring bean stubble on the 28th October Traditionally I would have got on the phone to the trader, who would have offered well spent?? their heartfelt apologies and had the beans gone within a week and offered an early payment date in recompense. This antiquated system of conducting business has been replaced by a hyper efficient streamlined version of business which is suitable for a post Brexit Britain and to lead us into the exciting future. Well now my trader, assumedly surrounded by screens in a darkened room keeping up to date with live feeds on the markets, is safely barricaded behind a team of kindly “assistants� who field all calls, sorting them into a list of priorities and I can only assume Agricultural Contractors mine is not a priority. With only 47ha of wheat left to go in, which was initially destined Hedge cutting etc for a spring crop, the end is almost insight. Then it will be a matter Grant: 07974 334529 of waiting for the cheque from the RPA to hit the doormat and remembering to savour the moment, as it could be one of the last. Office: 01620 810406

November 7th 2017 Ian Mackenzie is an arable and dairy farmer from the Canterbury Plain in the South Island of New Zealand. He runs a number of fully irrigated intensive cropping farms, producing grain, vegetable and grass seeds with some stock finishing. We’ve been invaded. The Scion of Sandystones along with Jess, Tilly and Wilfred has landed at Akaunui. Hugo worked here about 15 years ago, so their trip has been a whirlwind of farm visits and catching up with old acquaintances. There are permanent memorials to his time in NZ. Back then we used to meet at a neighbours shed on Friday nights for a few drinks and activities and plan what we might do the following week. All newcomers were required to see how high they could lift the substantial workshop anvil. Hugo was not only strong but has altitude (and attitude) was on his side. His mark on the shed wall has yet to be equalled. It is a busy time of year. The crop is all in and up. We did have to re-drill some barley but otherwise the The scion of Sandystones and family crops are starting to look better. The sun has come out and the westerly winds have kicked in drying the land so we have had to start the irrigators to wash in urea. Hugo commented on the health of our wheat crops and we pointed out that our westerly winds that come with very low humidity, provide poor conditions for septoria type disease conditions. A small benefit for days of hot desiccating conditions. The lambs are all sold and we will make about a $52/head margin • Hedge Cutting which is satisfactory, although the wet winter and spring probably robbed us of about 2kgs of carcase weight. All the lambs went up • Grain Crimping/Bruising to the North Island for slaughter to an exporter that markets to • All Arable Work carried out North America.

Talking......... Livestock

November 6th 2017

Barry Meeke farms 190 acres (150 owned) in partnership with brother Philip, near Dromara, County Down, Northern Ireland. They manage a mixed farm including pedigree British Friesian cows, breeding replacements, finished cattle and continental crosses being either sold as replacement suckler heifers or as finished stock. “Frustration” would be the word from the week just past. Yes, it was dry but there was no drying which is good for November but not good enough for the salvaging job which a lot of farmers are doing, myself included. Having said that, a sizeable amount of clean silage was saved this week and that will take some pressure off and thankfully ground damage was kept to a minimum. There is still a sizeable amount still to do and I hope Tuesdays forecast is wrong for those affected. I tried again to get the last of the grain that was still on the head but the ground just wouldn’t carry. This always questions the future of us keeping at the arable side of things but, I always end up thinking that if we hadn’t arable we would have had third cut and probably would have had more permanent damage done to the ground. Not being able to get winter crop resown has annoyed me as much as anything as it affects next year as well but, the ground for it in the rotation just wasn’t in good enough condition. On the good news side of things, we had a clear TB test which is always a relief as in the area if it strikes the numbers lost can be big. As some fields have an abundance of grass, the stale cows have been returned outside to utilize some more of it and thus saving valuable silage whilst shortening the winter for them. I would have liked to put the fresh calvers out a run to get the blood pumping round them and up out of their feet. This can’t happen as it would interfere with their worming program. So, in the spring time these cows might be the first to go to grass to keep the winter from going over 180 days. All of this effort sometimes seems pointless until you see it on paper, as the bench marking figures confirm that we are producing 3542 litres from forage and producing 7100 litres at 4.19%bf and 3.39% pro per cow on 1.6 tonne of home mixed meal. A lot of this is down to having a plan and sticking to it as variables happen every day without adding to them unnecessarily. The heifers that have calved down are doing nicely but are of course being spoilt as they are penned on their own and milked first in the morning and last in the evening but at the end of the day heifers don’t come cheap and we hope they will be cows for a long time. We have started looking at ai sires and will be putting extra emphasis on type merit as a good body and legs and feet are the most important thing to hang your investment on. A homebred bull (pictured) will be used as well for a while before selling him as he is out of a genuine 100 tonne cow with good fat and protein having completed 12 lactations at 14 years old!

On Our Farm

November 7th 2017 Guy Lee farms in partnership with his wife, Philippa, at Sandystones, near St Boswells. Arable crops of wheat, oilseed rape, malting barley, rye and organic oats are grown, 400 cattle are finished annually, 4000 organic hens produce eggs for Waitrose, 14,000 organic point of lay pullets reared each year and 60,000 pheasant poults are raised. In addition we produce Agrimart, which is read by 8,000 farmers and agriculturally related businesses. I never cease to be impressed by the enterprise, and faith in the future, of fellow Border farmers. A near neighbour, who milks 200 dairy cows, selling his milk on an aligned contract invested in a 250 kw AD plant. The base feed material is slurry from the cows supplemented with ensiled whole crop rye and grass. No sooner was this project completed and electricity was being produced for his own use and exported to the grid, he started on the next, building a 4 acre glass house growing tomatoes. This has taken foresight, courage and a considerable amount of planning and execution. Travel 10 miles east on the road to Morebattle and your eyes are drawn to a view more common in Tayside and Angus. Two brothers have just finished their first season growing blueberries in 5 acres of polytunnels, this is in addition to their veg growing. There are many more examples of investing for the future in the area with AD plants, visitor attractions, breweries and distilleries. These all need basic agricultural ingredients and we are able to benefit from these investments. It was good to The decision to sow winter barley in October has been vindicated. In fact, in see forgotten arts being displayed at hindsight I wish I had drilled the 20 hectares that has remained unsown, I had the annual hedge the seed but not the courage to carry on in less than ideal conditions. To my laying competition Ancrum Mains. surprise with warm soil and mild weather the crop was up in the drills within atJamie Scott has 14 days. Having said that it was very wet the week after this field was sown. single handedly The same cannot be said of 8 hectares that was direct drilled with Westerwolds organised this event ryegrass in September, I knew it was a punt at the time. The idea was to graze a for many years. October sown winter barley looking good vigorous sward with sheep through the winter, spread muck in March and then grow a cheap crop of spring barley. The new farm manager will not be best pleased having to make the most of a stubble field with a green tinge! We depleted a hen house last week, for the first time in many years the number caught up were exactly what we expected. In the past we have been as many as 300 birds short. This has been put down to raptors taking hens in the range. A combination of enforced housing for 12 weeks due to avian flu and the very effective hawk kites has resulted in no unexplained losses at all. The shed was moved off the muck the following day, we had an entertaining time shooting the rats as they were exposed to daylight. We try hard to deal with rodents by other means but it is an uphill struggle. Cattle are growing well, inevitably the price is falling as huge numbers come fit at the same time. Keeping them clean is proving impossible as the poor quality straw has little absorption and is half rotted in the bale. We must count ourselves lucky as we do have sufficient fodder and bedding to get through to next harvest. In the west there are horrific stories of no silage or straw on some farms, this is a desperate situation and we must count our blessings. One area of concern is the lack of market for shot game. The shooting industry is a very important part of our business and it is essential a good use is found for the huge numbers of pheasant and partridge that flood the market through the autumn and winter. Shooting is a major contributor to the rural economy and is a treasured leisure pursuit for thousands. Visitors come from all over the world to enjoy sport that is unique to the UK, we must make sure there is a balanced and responsible supply chain. I am incredibly lucky having a son who wants to come home and take over the business. He is bringing with him an enthusiastic wife and two lovely children. When I tell most people this exciting development in our lives their immediate reaction is “but what are you going to do? You’re too young to retire!” As my new farm manager has gone to New Zealand for a month I’m still running the show so I will keep my intentions to myself until the New Year when we swap roles. The cottage we have been renovating and extending for Hugo and Jess is almost complete, their month in New Zealand has given us the time needed to do the finishing touches. We have been extremely fortunate to have found Jamie Murray who has taken on the role as project manager with experience, enthusiasm and a good deal of knowledge of dealing with the building trade and clients!

Blinkbonny Kwik Mix

Concrete the way you want it!

Blinkbonny Quarry is offering a revolutionary way of mixing concrete, instead of the traditional method of delivering ready mixed concrete Blinkbonny Kwik Mix have placed a batching plant on the back of a lorry. Our batching plants can be set on site to produce any spec of concrete required and it can be controlled to stop to the nearest shovel full, eliminating wasted concrete and unfinished jobs. The machines will carry enough raw material for 6 or 8M3 but can leave concrete in quarter M3 amounts so if the job takes 4.75M3 we will take the rest away and you only pay for what you lay, no “part load charge”. We all know how difficult it can be to estimate so here is the answer, no more ordering 4M3 and then having to order another half M3 to finish the job. We also supply all grades of hardcore and crushed rock products at

Talking......... Arable

November 6th 2017

Colin Mitchell is farm manager at Meikleour Estate near Blairgowrie in Perthshire. The soils range from light sand and gravel to some heavy, wet, north facing clay loams with 400 acres of fertile silty sand. Cropping covers 2200 acres and includes winter wheat, barley, oats and oilseed rape, spring barley and oats, seed and ware potatoes, carrots and vining peas. Remember, remember the 5th of November! Just in time to celebrate a failed assassination plot we have caught on up on work. I say caught up because we never really seem to be finished fieldwork. Wheat has been drilled on all of the potato fields, apart from wet areas, which often coincide with tramlines from the spuds. It makes me wonder why we bother planting potato tramlines, often they are either too wet or solid to lift completely and there are typically more greens and rots as well. It’s not helped by the irrigation we do, so even when its not raining the tramlines sit full of water. One option would be leaving a wider gap, which would then allow us to run with wide tyres, but could cost us in yield in drier Drilling Wheat fields. It’s a bit of a conundrum, but with the emphasis on quality and packed yield over gross yield it may be a viable option. It would however rely on a 100% accurate GPS signal, which is not always guaranteed in our area, although now that we can receive 4G over the whole farm it may improve somewhat, here’s hoping. Now that all of the wheat after potatoes is drilled we are back to waiting. The beet harvester is due in a couple of days time, this will let us get the last of the wheat drilled, and we are due to start lifting carrots in 10 days or so. I would like to think those two jobs would just follow on nicely from each other, but it wont be the first time plan A has been foiled. Potatoes are starting to be outloaded as well, they are packing out at reasonable levels, and the fridges and drying Wet spot walls appear to have done a good job of drying out any soil in the boxes. The biggest month for movement is always December, which will hopefully coincide with a finish of landwork, but please note my earlier comment about plan A! It will probably be yours truly that ends up loading most of the boxes if plan B is enacted. Spraying on the drilled cereals is on target as well with pre-emergence herbicides going on in good conditions and trace elements being applied to forward crops. The rye and wheat are looking quite good so far although a close eye needs to be kept for slugs, especially on the rye as it seems very attractive to them. I try to avoid spraying insecticides in the autumn if at all possible, so between later drilling (more by accident than design) and using seed treatments (which they are trying to ban) I hope to avoid any problems with aphids and BYDV. Overwintered carrots have also been covered with straw. This is obviously worth a small fortune this year but, like livestock farmers, straw is essential to our business. At least I’m in the fortunate position of having enough cereal acreage to supply the straw rather than having to buy it in. I do actually have some spare bales this year, but before the cattle boys get excited, it’s already spoken for by another carrot farmer and it’s not good enough quality that I would be comfortable selling for livestock. As the harvest weather was very catchy we tend to bale straight behind the combine wherever possible, or if the stuff has been rained on we accept a few wet lumps. The consequence of this is that one bale is like cardboard while the next one has lumps of what can only be described as dung through it. Good straw The best bales have actually been rye straw, the straw doesn’t soak up moisture and dries very quickly after rain so it results in quite good straw even in a catchy season. The rye also gives a lot more straw than wheat or barley so is actually quite a good choice for us.

Talking......... Organic

November 8th 2017 Simon Bainbridge farms in partnership with his wife Claire and his parents, Ivan and Elisabeth in Northumberland. They run suckler beef, sheep and laying hen enterprises across 650 ha of mainly SDA and moorland organically. The hens are doing well at the moment. They are 49 weeks old, looking fine, sounding fine and laying well. The tricky thing with any new enterprise is that you don’t really know how well you are doing. Claire has been feather scoring the birds, but as she says, you don’t really know whether they have good, bad or indifferent feather cover at this stage, as we’ve not seen birds at this stage. We are using extra hard organic pecking blocks as one of their enrichments. Being fully beaked, the birds are hammering them and they don’t seem to last very long. However, I would rather the pecking blocks got hammered than the birds. We have organised the bird out/bird in dates and clean out team that won’t happen till the middle of next year. We had a bull that went lame in the summer during the bulling period and I had to purchase a replacement in a hurry. The scan of that group has been disappointing compared to the rest of the groups. Overall we will calve four fewer than last year but it’s the success of the other groups that has kept our numbers up. One of the challenges of very tight bulling periods is any bull issues. They are all MOT’d annually but its difficult to account for a lame bull. We have built the new bull pens from Penderfeed so we can better look after them and try to avoid them not performing when they have to. The pens are now finished and the Bulls went in today. They look very content. We have installed self locking yokes so we can treat them safely and also have an escape gap out of each pen. The pens are able to be shut front to back, or back to front without actually going in with the bull. This makes mucking out and bedding safe for man and beast. I am also considering changing the drinking troughs in all the cattle sheds to the smaller bowl style drinker which we have put in the bull pens. It will make them significantly easier to clean out and the stock will then have much fresher and cleaner drinking water and so raise performance. Cows and calves will come in this week and will receive a flukicide a fortnight after that. The in calf heifers and fat cattle are all in now. Sheep work is endless at the moment with lambs being sorted, ewes being tailed and fluked and tups to MOT. They will then go out later this month. Lambs are at present still rotationally grazing the red clovers but they are starting to run out of steam, so the lambs will then shortly be going on to the forage brassicas.

What a crazy last month it has been! After five incredible years at Whitsbury I have left to come back to farm at Sandystones but first stop a trip to New Zealand for the next month. Jess and I have had the most memorable time at Whitsbury and we have found it very hard to leave. We have met some amazing friends since living there and have absolutely loved the community spirit that Whitsbury provided. We had a really fun leaving party a couple of weeks ago at the village hall where we were able to thank everyone who has played such an important role in making our lives there so wonderful. But mostly my thanks have to go to Chris and Nicky Harper who 5 years ago took a big punt on an underqualified (but over enthusiastic!) assistant farm manager only a couple Last goodbye to Scotland Farmhouse of years out of a professional rowing career and gave me the most fantastic opportunity. I have learnt so much from Chris, not only about farming but also how to run an extremely successful business. In return I hope I have left the farm in an even better place than where I found it and I really look forward to implementing the knowledge I’ve gained at Whitsbury once back at home. I was really keen to make sure that everything was up to date before I left and therefore the last week was pretty crazy getting the final fields of wheat drilled, pre-em sprayed and slug pelleted. I had felt bad enough that I’d left Jess and her mother to do most of the packing of the house. However this probably wasn’t helped much by the fact on my first official day of not working, I managed to sneak in my last day’s shooting at Whitsbury by kind invitation of Chris! Despite this we eventually managed to get all our lives packed and loaded into a couple of Luton vans and cars filled to the gunnels. The Border Removals guys need a medal for somehow squeezing every last piece in so there was not an inch of space to spare - not even flinching when they had to unpack half a van to try and fit in our 7ft long bed (my fault apparently for being so tall!). After an emotional goodbye (particularly on Jess’ behalf as there were a lot of tears!) to the place that we have been lucky enough to start our family, we then packed the children off with Jess’ mother and headed up to Sandystones. The cottage we are going to be living in is a still a bit of ‘a work in progress’ so a busy few days were spent unloading, although not unpacking our stuff, helping with the build and making lots of final decisions. Hopefully on our return from New Zealand it will be habitable, at least, even if not finished! We were then faced with the daunting prospect of a 24hr flight to New Zealand with a 3yr old and an 18 month old! Wilf, it turns out, should become a seasoned traveller as he actually slept nearly 20 of the 24 hrs of the flight and has hardly even noticed the 13hr time difference! Even Tilly has adapted amazingly well and it has been Jess and I who have definitely had to catch up. We have been lucky enough to be able to spend our first few days with Ian and Di Mackenzie at Akaunui in the most beautiful surroundings and being spoilt rotten by them. It has been nearly 15 years since I was here last and I can’t believe the change to the Canterbury Plains. Jess complained about how long our drive from the airport took as I couldn’t stop looking at all dairy farms that have appeared out of nowhere. Huge numbers of cows and centre pivots as far as the eye can see. To top it One of the many dairy Wilf, Margot and Tilly off the weather has been amazing for our first few days with the temperature in the mid farms with the southern - the next generation of Lees and Mackenzies 20s and wall to wall sunshine. They are busy irrigating here so I’m off to go help Ian Alps in the background hanging out! shift another irrigator!
