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

HE’S BACK!

Wendy writes

He is not the only one who’s been on holiday. A month without him in the country is a holiday for everyone here. As his brother in law so succinctly remarked ‘It is so peaceful without him around. For some reason everyone is going round with a smile on their faces’ and how right he is, no shouting and abuse, such a relaxed atmosphere. The young boss and I have been busy; I have forgiven him for nearly depositing me in a bog last month. It was a close call but a risk we both agreed was worth taking as the reward for recovering a bogged digger would be a first for me and we would have one over him when he arrived home. I had a tough pull at Selkirk a fortnight ago, the skids under the hen houses at Oakwood Mill are normally placed on steel runners but he told Gibby to save the hassle and not to use them last year. I reversed up to the shed, ran out my new cable, put the spades down and started to pull. I have never known the spades go so deep, they went into the ground until they would go no further, then my front wheels started to lift and still the shed refused to budge. Suddenly there was a bang and my cable went slack. I had visions of the incident I had this time last year, in the snow, when the front of the hen house at Synton came away. The damage this time was only to the frame which gave way at a weak point. It was taken to Selkirk to be repaired and soon we were up and pulling again. This time successfully and I have another happy customer to add to my list. With the young man now firmly in control I dread the thought of having him behind my wheel again. He has been back a week and has not even had the decency to come and see how I am. I don’t mind passing the time of day with him occasionally but I don’t want to be subjected to his boring photographs. The young man is talking of getting me painted, the way he has organised things round here it might just happen. I wouldn’t place a bet on which happens first - Brexit or my makeover they both have run for a very long time.

March 9th 2019 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 had a busy month with farming, visitors and tourists. The weather has been stunning; hot and dry and perfect for finishing the harvest which is now all done. Kenny (64) and James (18) the 2 combine drivers tell me they are heading home to Suffolk and Nottingham respectively next week. Kenny, a widower, who has been displaced by his son from his own farm, is used by New Holland to demonstrate new gear all round Europe and then escapes the winter by going to his boat in the Med or coming south to drive combines in NZ and Oz. I took him jet boating up the Rakaia to encourage him to return to us again next year. Despite not seeing the red bikini he assured me he would come back. We have had to work quite hard to keep the water up to maintaining grass growth on the dairy farm; and the winter feed crops of kale up at the winter resort have suffered a bit of drought stress; but the cows are still producing milk at record levels and the milk price is going up so that is all good. The kale crops will hopefully pick up as we go into cooler temperatures through autumn. We’ve also had a steady stream of visitors to stay. Hamish Dunbar Naismith, from Elgin, and some of his Edinburgh University mates from Inverness, Jedburgh and Dumfries came to stay. A great bunch of young men who were having a ball working and travelling around NZ. Scottish agriculture will be well served by their enthusiasm and talent. Robert and Julia “the” Bruce from by Sandystones also came to see us. They had been over here for a wedding and Robert needed a farming fix. We did all the farming stuff and then because it was a stunning day we went jet boating. On our way back down through the Rakaia Gorge we spotted the girl in the red bikini on a large rock waving at us showing signs of distress. Apparently a large group of young people who were at some musical festival love in thing at a lodge further up the Rakaia had thought it a good idea to swim the length of the gorge. Not something many locals would choose to do with whirlpools, back eddies and huge rocks making it a fairly dangerous past time. One of her (the red bikini’s) friends had hurt himself by trying to avoid drowning and was in bad shape. So we left Robert to comfort the red bikini while we ferried the injured and all the other swimmers Spring Cultivations down the gorge to safety. RTK Drilling / Ploughing. By the time we had extracted Robert and the red bikini down to VRA Fertiliser Spreading / Spraying our trucks, there were doctors and ambulances and even a rescue All other general contract work undertaken. helicopter, all administering stuff to the distressed swimmers. We were invited to join the musical festival love in thing back up the Tel: 01450 375 045 Rakaia that night but declined and returned to Akaunui for a more Mob: 07836 205 606 / 07801 812 238 sedate party. I hope Robert didn’t mind too much. Email: scottoverhall@outlook.com Find us on facebook.

As we approach the end of the tax year it is important to review allowances and reliefs to ensure these are fully utilised. Here are a few areas that can be considered: Transferring Assets: If one spouse or civil partner does not have sufficient income to utilise their personal allowance or basic rate tax band it may be beneficial to transfer income generating assets to distribute income more evenly. There are specific points to consider so advice should be sought. Pension Contributions: Taxable income can be reduced through pension contributions. This remains a highly tax efficient method of extracting funds from a limited company. Any UK resident under the age of 75 can contribute up to £2,880 net (£3,600 gross) into a pension regardless of their earnings. The downside is that your pension fund cannot be accessed until you reach the age of 55. Charitable Donations: Tax relief is available for cash gifts to UK charities providing benefit to both the donor and the charity. It is important to keep records of all charitable donations as this may be requested from H M Revenue and Customs. Care should however be taken if you are a low earner as claiming gift aid could result in a surprising tax charge if you have not paid sufficient tax on your income to cover the gift aid claim. Inheritance Tax Annual Exemption: Individuals can give £3,000 each tax year without any inheritance tax implications. Any unused annual exemption can be carried forward one year; as such if the annual exemption was unused in 2017/18 £6,000 could be given away before the end of this tax year. Individual Savings Accounts: With the introduction of the personal savings allowance allowing basic rate taxpayers to earn interest of £1,000 tax free ISA’s may not seem such an attractive option. The subscription limit of £20,000 can be invested in cash, UK stocks and shares, foreign shares and other permitted investments with any income and gains being tax free. Capital Gains Tax Individuals have an annual exemption of £11,700 which if not used is lost. This exemption will shelter any realised capital gains in a tax year. Each spouse has their own annual exemption and with assets transferred between spouses free of tax providing the transfer is unconditional and absolute it may be possible to access a lower tax rate. Additionally sale by one spouse and repurchase by the other can be used to establish a loss that can be set against other gains. For further information on any of these points, contact our office today on 01289 302463

Residential Rent Reviews - keep them up to date to avoid problems further down the line Rent reviews are a topic both landlords and tenants tend to avoid, due to there being a perception that they can be quite fractious, particularly agricultural rent reviews where there have been several well publicised cases. In most situations however, rent reviews - whether it’s on agricultural, commercial or residential property - when carried out on a good standing between the parties will reach agreement amicably. In times when farming businesses are looking to maximise income and with many businesses having residential Fergus Thomson, Associate Director properties that are let, it is important to keep on top of rent reviews in order to avoid large increases over a long for Davidson & period of time. Reviews that involve significant increases in rent are more likely to be met with resistance from Robertson the tenant. More regular reviews that implement smaller more palatable increases are more easily received by the tenant and in turn will generate a larger return for the landlord. ‘Little and often’ is a good mantra. The rent review notice provision will be dependent on the type of residential tenancy that is in place and the respective legislation that governs each type of tenancy. The residential tenancy is most likely to fall under the following; Assured Tenancies, Short Assured Tenancies or Private Residential Tenancies. It is important to know what the rent notice provision is, and that the notice is served correctly as it may be deemed invalid if the correct protocol is not followed. If you are unsure of the correct notice provisions, you should seek professional advice. Case Study The case study below highlights the benefits of regularly reviewing a Short-Assured Tenancy (SAT) on return as opposed to not reviewing. Reviewing the rent by the increase in Retail Price Index (RPI) can be seen as the simplest and most reasonable method of review. Cottage 1 – Starting rent £6,000pa (£500pcm). No reviews carried out on property. Total rent over 3-year period = £18,000. Cottage 2 – Starting rent £6,000pa (500pcm). Reviewed annually by RPI. Total rent over 3-year period = £19,114. (Year 1 = £6,155, Year 2 = £6,398, Year 3 = £6,561). As you will see over the 3 year period in which the rent was increased yearly by RPI, this generated an additional £1,114 income. If the number of properties, or duration of reviews, were increased the total rental could be considerably more. NB there are statutory limits on the frequency that rent reviews can take place. If you are thinking of undertaking a rent review or wish to discuss any part of your property, then please contact Fergus Thomson, Associate Director at the Davison & Robertson Berwick office on 01289 543 222 or visit www.drrural.co.uk.

On Our Farm

March 12th 2019 Hugo Lee farms in partnership with his father, Guy, at Sandystones, near St Boswells. Arable crops of wheat, oilseed rape, malting barley and rye are grown, 400 Angus cattle are finished annually, 6000 organic hens produce eggs for Waitrose, 14,000 organic point of lay pullets reared each year and 60,000 pheasant poults are raised. A couple of Sundays ago as we sat outside having breakfast on a glorious Spring day with the temperature in the mid-teens it was hard to believe that exactly a year ago the “Beast from the East” had arrived. What a difference a year makes! We used the recent spell of fantastic weather to apply the rest of the P & K as well as the first round of Nitrogen and Sulphur to all the Winter crops. This was a few weeks earlier than I would normally have spread Nitrogen but with conditions so good and plants starting to kick on, it was an opportunity I just could not afford to miss. Only time will tell if it was the right decision. However, I take heart in the fact that the crops which got some Nitrogen pre the Beast from the East yielded better than those which received it post. All the hedging was completed before the weather broke and the planting team did a fantastic job. Thankfully due to the great ground conditions they barely made a mark even on the ploughed land. Unfortunately the fencers Above February 2019 Below February 2018 have been delayed on another job and only arrived last week just as conditions took a dramatic turn for the worst. It has become a bit of a challenge to find fields dry enough to work in. I am amazed how wet everywhere has become in such a short period of time. However after a check of the range gauge figures we have had 3 inches of rain in the last ten days so it’s hardly surprising. Over the last couple of weeks I have attended bench marking meetings, one hosted by the ADHB and another farmer led group which my Dad has been involved with for over 10 years. I found both meetings Over 1,700m of new hedging fascinating, thought provoking and enjoyable. I am a strong believer in sharing information with other farmers and using this to learn how I/we can improve our businesses. Last weekend I went to Murrayfield to watch Scotland v Wales. It was a great second half for Scotland but a bit like the weather over the last month despite moments of brilliance they once again failed to deliver. I left Murrayfield frustrated but like most Scottish supporters I am the eternal optimist and cannot wait for England next weekend. By the time you read this, we may have a decision on Brexit. I for one am getting pretty tired of the situation and just want a decision made one way or the other. OSR romping away Hopefully the weather improves very soon for all of you who are lambing , calving and waiting to drill.

March 10th 2019

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. What a difference a year makes! As I write (10/3/19) the Sun is shining, the grass is growing and the birds are chirping. Admittedly it was a bit different a few hours ago with a dusting of wet snow and conditions underfoot aren’t that great, but it’s still a marked improvement from early March 2018. All of the winter cereals have had their first dose of nitrogen along with some sulphur 7 days ago, and have started to grow away. Unfortunately no sooner than one set of symptoms is cured than others pop up, so if the weather plays ball we need to have a quick trip round with some trace elements. The main one that I put in with every spray is manganese and it is relatively easy and cheap to do, however there are other deficiencies I need to keep an eye on. The copper level in the light soil is pretty low so that also needs rectification. It used to be cheap and easy, a big dose of cuprokylt every few years was enough, but now I tend to do smaller and more frequent treatments. I am also experimenting a bit with mixes including boron and zinc. The former is “traditionally” not deemed necessary in cereals but there is some evidence that small doses help with seed formation so it may be worth giving it a try. These applications are all going to be backed up this year by tissue tests taken before key timings, to determine current levels. To encourage me to “think outside the box” I’ve entered a field of hybrid rye, which is kindly being sponsored by seed company KWS, in the ADAS YEN (Yield Enhancing Network) competition. Although it’s purely a yield based competition (gross margin doesn’t come into it) it does help to foster innovation which others can learn from, whether that be differences in nitrogen usage, trace element applications or drilling date. While it might be tempting to think that I won’t have a hope against “kinder” sites elsewhere, the past winners have come from as far north as Shetland, so I can’t use the weather as an excuse. Autumn sown Dogs sampling rye Conway Oats for comfort Otherwise on the farm, we have managed to make a good start to ploughing for the spring crops. All of the land for cereals and beet has compound fertiliser spread before being ploughed and pressed. This gives a nice firm seedbed which reduces the need for rolling and which hasn’t been run on until the drill gets there. Most of the land for potatoes and carrots has also been ploughed. In this case we spread fertiliser on top of the ploughing just before planting. This is because we go through with a deep cultivation before ridging anyway to make sure the seedbed is fully cultivated, which in turn removes any wheel marks. Unfortunately it looks as though the weather is going to change for the worse just as we are starting to harvest carrots. Hopefully the forecast snow and rain doesn’t come to much and we can get them out without too much mess and soil damage, fingers crossed! I’ll let you know how we fare next time. 42

Talking.........Organic

Kincraig, 9 Broompark, Kelso TD5 7SN

March 12th 2019

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. This week we are Johnes testing the cattle. We have had to wait a while before we can test as we recently did our 4 year TB test. Testing too soon after can give a false result. Whilst we have the cattle in we will be blood testing for energy and protein levels pre calving, as well as vaccinating the cows for scour 3 weeks before calving starts. Ewes will have a worm egg count done prelambing and will receive a mineral bolus and their booster for clostridial diseases. So far, this winter has been very kind (as I write this, I am crossing fingers and toes that it continues into a kind spring) and this has rescued our forage stocks. With just one load of fat cattle still waiting to go we should (fingers crossed again) make it to the spring. We have had to supplement our supplies through the winter months with some expensive organic concentrate to make the silage go further. The layers building is coming along in a rush. The fitters have nearly finished the four houses in this building, having completed the job in less than three weeks. Mario and his Polish colleagues have done a great job of fitting the Big Dutchman multi-tier system. These houses, (5 - 8) will each hold 3,000 birds. The new hens will arrive just as we start lambing and calving. A valued member of our hen team is also retiring this week and leaving the area. We have tried to convince her that she could commute from Scotland, but she’s having none of it! It will be a busy time until we recruit new members of staff to the team. Over the last two years there have been a number of progressions in laying house design. We have added insulation to the bottom concrete wall. This wall is only about 40cm high but was acting as a bridge for dampness, so hopefully having it insulated will enable the litter inside to remain dry. We are also installing an automatic flushing system fitted to the water lines and will retrofit the same system into the existing house. The flow PORTEQUIP 3m of water through the drinker lines is very steady, and over a period of time biofilm can build up in the lines and carry bacteria. Being organic AERATOR/SLITTER we are not allowed to put anything into the water that could clean the £5 per acre lines so we need to make sure we keep the pipes as clean as possible. Forcing the water through under pressure should help. FLEMING END TOW We hosted a joint LEAF and ADAS on farm Event, the “Super-G 12 FOOT WATER BALLAST “workshop (SUstainable PERmanent Grassland). The ongoing study is ROLLER £75/day looking at how to maximize the potential of permanent pasture. It is a project across Europe looking at 5 different climatic zones, differing types of ROLLAND LIVESTOCK permanent pasture, how to manage it and the challenges and opportunities TRAILER it provides. It pulls together international and national knowledge as well £70 / day as local knowledge from Universities, farmers, academics, scientists and consultants. The day went really well with lots of positive feedback.

Talking.........from Colombia

March 12th 2019

We left the blue skies of Argentina for the warm but muggy weather of Colombia. After two days in Bogota we flew West to the coffee region and spent a day learning everything you ever need to know about growing, harvesting, drying and making coffee. If you ever thought producing a crop of malting barley had its difficulties, coffee is a lot more complex. There are over 100 varieties of bean but only four are cultivated, predominated by Arabica and Robusta. Only Arabica is grown in Colombia, this variety has a much lower caffeine content than Robusta and is less bitter. The Guy Lee important influences on coffee quality are altitude, size of bean, humidity, drying, roasting, the temperature of the water when made and percolation time. Berries are harvested when they are either red or yellow so each bush is picked a number of times. As soon as they are picked the beans are shelled and then placed in a tank of water for 24 hours, the low grade (approx. 3%) float, these are skimmed off and used for instant coffee! Picking is hard work in hot and sometimes wet weather, on very steep slopes where it would be impossible to get a machine. Similar to finding labour to pick soft fruit in this country, there is a scarcity of willing coffee pickers in Colombia. They work six days a week and spend Sunday drinking every cent they have earned. This is not Coffee harvesting the only problem the growers are facing, values are low and traditional farms are struggling. From there we flew north to the Caribbean coast which unlike the seas around the West Indies is very inhospitable for swimming with large waves and a dangerous undertow. We had booked a morning’s riding in the Sierra Nevada, this sounded idyllic described as following the trails of Hacienda La Victoria. We were driven to a small town in the hills where we spotted saddled up horses on the side of the road. Looking small and scrawny we never thought they were to be our mounts for the next two hours. There were five of them, three of which were mares with foals less than a month old at foot. I was told that a grey horse with the tops of its ears cut off was for me. The man in charge, who had little command of English, said this horse, a stallion, had issues -‘don’t touch his ears and don’t pull on the reins or he’ll take off’. The only way I have ever been told to stop a horse was to put pressure on the bit, with this instruction I had no idea how I was going to control this beast! I asked about the ears, it transpired that he had been stolen and to prove that the horse had always belonged to the thieves, they cut the top of his ears off. Unfortunately when the owners came looking for their missing stallion, his ears were still bleeding and their protestations of ownership were proved to be false. So we set off for our Foal having a quick suck, ride, my mount was very hungry and never stopped putting his head down to eat anything from dry leaves to my stallion behind bamboo stalks. My huge weight on his small frame, combined with the mares with foals following along, his empty stomach and the abuse he had suffered culminated in him suddenly bolting (the harder I pulled the faster he went) and depositing me on a very hard track. I still have the bruises to show for it. This was a really great holiday and despite the current weather it is good to be home.

Talking........Livestock

March 11th 2019 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. As I look outside and see a snow storm on, I have to be thankful that I am not a sheep farmer, conditions like that in March at the height of lambing has got to be challenging. At least it is March weather in March - it may straighten the weather up as the winter was noticeably too mild up until now. Having said that, the warm dry spell at the end of February allowed hedge cutting to be finished, a little slurry applied, winter barley top dressed with NPK and granulated lime. Dad also got some ground work started with some digger work and a field ploughed as well. While all of the above was going on amidst the normal daily chores, a good friend (who just by the way is always first to comment on my article as soon as it hits the mat) was asked by another contractor if he was a contractor who farms or a farmer who contracts? As this question was forwarded to me I have given it great thought from different angles and reckon I am a farmer who contracts a little but from time to time there are jobs out there or somebody or animal that has to take preference making me a contractor who farms. Parlour washings have been moved to different tanks to get them ready for mixing into the slurry to make the umbilical spreading as straight forward as possible whenever the weather fairs a little. Now that the silos have been roofed over the return on investment has become noticeable as waste silage is minimal with no water damaged silage to contend with. It is also noticeable that the floors aren’t corroding as quickly due to water, seepage, traffic and direct sunlight being a bad combination. Not having to collect all that ‘dirty water’ is a massive plus, as apart from the expense of spreading the water, it is less water on already wet ground. Farming has never been so honestly portrayed for the public eye to see with various tv presentations like ‘This Farming Life’, ‘Rare breed’, ‘Yorkshire Vet’ and ‘Countryfile’. All of which show the reality facing us daily with many challenges but how resilient we are as a ‘rare breed’. So I would like to know, on what grounds do so called ‘animal activists’ have the grounds or even the right to enter farms unannounced and cause havoc? I’m specifically referring to another article I read where a large number of activists entered a farrowing house and caused a lot of stress to the sows. I’m not a pig farmer but I know that that is an outright no no. So how do these people have animals interests at heart? I reckon we all know the answer. For once they would be better off at home watching reality and leave farmers to deal with what they know best! Caring for their animals. 50

Mossgiel is an Organic Dairy in Mauchline, Ayrshire and has been working with Seamill Red Himalayan Mineral Salts to remineralise their business from the ground up. Our sustainable farming dream began in 2015. The farm started the two-year process to become organic: farming without synthetic fertilisers, no pesticides, no chemical sprays and processing the milk as little as possible. As the third generation of the Cunningham family to work the lands of this tenanted 200-acre farm of Mossgiel we were being controlled by the dairy industry. Controlled by and being paid just 15p per litre for our milk, 15p per litre to look after our ‘Mossgiel girls’, a herd of Award Winning Ayrshire cows. We were trying to provide an income for our family, losing £10,000 per month. That was unsustainable. Our land, our girls, our home were under threat and our son was just 1 year old. Things had to change, yesterday! Calf Dehorners Mobile Cattle Handling Trailer We took control, notified the dairy we would no longer be supplying them and decided we would offer the Mossgiel girl’s outstanding, non-homogenised milk directly to the public. A pasteuriser was installed on the farm to reduce food miles to zero and we signed up to become an Organic dairy farm. We batch-pasteurise and then bottle directly from the pasteuriser to ensure the fullest taste is retained and no plastics are used. As we do not standardise or homogenise our milk, the phenomenon of the ‘cream top’ remains something that has been missing from milk for a long time. Starting with a few enthusiastic supporters in our native county of Ayrshire, we quickly found we were supplying some of the most highly regarded specialty coffee shops all across Scotland. Mossgiel milk isEasy excellent in coffee and has a unique froth. We Exit Lamb Creep Lamb ability Creep to Shelter couldn’t believe how much support the girl’s non-homogenised milk attracted. Of course, it’s not all about us and some white stuff. Calving Yoke Hurdle Our girls are the very heart of our family farming story, eating what they should as in a purely organic, grass-based diet. Spending the wet Ayrshire summers grazing these historic free-range pastures of Mossgiel Farm - the very farm that world famous Scottish poet Robert Burns had worked and lived. (He had also written a few poems and songs in his time here.) We are determined to stop the downward spiral and the trend of destroying our farm and our health with unsustainable practices. One of our projects this year, with the help of Seamill Red Himalayan Mineral Salts, is to remineralise the soil. We will spread these food grade natural & Organic Forcing minerals on our 200 acres. Stepping into that health cycle, healing the soil, feeding the grass, protectingCattle our girls, pure Pen milk, no synthetics, no pesticides, no chemical sprays. Working with a farm that is perhaps 300 years old, and will still be usable for maybe another 300 years? Does it have a sense of purpose? Of course, I’m a businessman. But at the end of the day, I’m a human being, and I aim to heal, not destroy our land. Observing the silhouettes of our girls as they fill the landscape with shape and colours as they move softly and feed in an orderly fashion, almost in a manner of showing respect to the peace of Mossgiel, the scene is comforting and calming as you become almost Lambing Hurdles Calf Creep lost in the movement and beauty of its patterns.

Talking........from Lincolnshire

March 11th 2019

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. The topic for last month was describing the sodden playing fields of Newark Rugby Club which has now turned to the dry dustbowl of the Lincolnshire plains in February. Never before have I started spring drilling before March, let alone into conditions such as these. With record temperatures and brisk winds the cultivated lighter land belonging to a customer dried beautifully and drilled perfectly. Whilst doing this contract drilling I was mulling over the conundrum of whether to start planting at home or wait until the soil temperature would become consistently higher. I am a big believer in spring crops wanting to jump out of the ground so I decided to sow the spring oats whilst the drill was “dirty” with fertiliser and wait until planting the spring beans. Having had 45mm of rain in the Trying to finish planting the oats before the rain... last few days the jury is still out as to which will be the right decision. On a more disappointing note my oilseed rape, which I was so proud of, is now taking a hammering from cabbage stem flea beetle larvae. The damage a single larva can cause is amazing, especially given that SPANISH VILLA FOR RENT the autumn CSFB pressure here was so low. There is no apparent damage in the lush plants on the fertiliser overlaps so this might point to a possible solution. Given the lack of nitrogen mineralisation caused by the direct drilling process at establishment and the mat of CSFB larvae damage decaying organic material on the surface I do feel that applying more nitrogen in the autumn (going from 20kgN/ha to 30kgN/ha) would be prudent. Something for this autumn if the CSFB larvae have not put me off growing this weed forever... Sleeps 8, stunning sea & mountain views. I now have 2 quotes in for doing some land drainage later this summer/autumn. Both 80 mins to Malaga airport, 25 mins to the companies use chained trenchers which are standard in this area, yet after speaking to a sea, 10 mins to Cómpeta ‘white’ village. best-man regarding a stag-do this week he mentioned he had used a contractor with a plough Gorgeous pool & rural location. (more common in the rest of the world) so I am getting a quote for this as well for comparison. 2019 prices from 116€ - 192€ per day. The numbers are eye watering but when I return to look at my “original” drainage map of the farm, all 365ha on one side of A4, it can be seen that this land was last drained camillawarre@synton.co.uk between 1954-1970 so it might be time for a bit of long overdue investment. 07966 284401 / 01750 32313

According to ‘That’s Farming’ Red Himalayan Mineral Salt helps with Animal Fertility, Milk Production and Growth. Cattle with a Potassium rich diet from forage have their Sodium levels affected, restricting their ability to absorb Magnesium. Grass-fed with any excess of Nitrogen and Potassium can block the uptake of minerals. Red Himalayan Salts contain all 84 naturally formed minerals easily metabolised by the body. Helping with Animal Fertility, reducing Cud Ball, Frothy Bloat, and helping reduce the spread of Orf in Sheep. The minerals are essential, producing enzymes vital to the Animals immune system critical in Lambing and Calving.
