FROM ELATION TO DESPAIR Wendy writes July 2019 It had to happen, no sooner was my outside looking the smartest it has done for years when my insides gave up. He had just come back from one of his many holidays, when we drove up to Gosford to pull four sheds off for cleaning. I managed to pull the first two relatively easily. I was half way through moving the third when I felt this terrible pain and the cable went slack. Investigation revealed a broken drive shaft. Just when he was about to throw in the towel, Chris who was driving the forklift said he could weld me up. Three hours in the workshop and we were back in the field, things didn’t feel right but we got the other sheds moved. The next day we had to go over to Penicuik to pull one house for David Stoddart. This was a tough one, I grunted and groaned and even broke sweat and then just as it started to move the other shaft failed. It was 5pm on a damp Friday night, but Chris welding first shaft no matter I found myself in Gordon Turner’s workshop. What a great man. Three hours later I was out and hooked up to the shed again which I successfully moved. Why were these shafts breaking? There is something fundamentally wrong. I need a scan but of course he would not even consider funding that. Instead he went over to Atlas Winch in Biggar and bought a snatch block, too little too late I thought. For those ignorant of the mechanics of winching a snatch block is a pulley that doubles the pulling power and halves the effort. We went over to In Gordon Turner’s Ednam on the Monday to pull Anne’s laying house. With the block in place it was a dream and I felt a lot better. Tuesday I had off and then on Wednesday it was back to Gosford to move the clean workshop houses back into position. I pulled the first OK, I was half way through the second when the winch gearbox made an awful noise and I knew immediately we had catastrophic damage. In 2011 I had a new gear made and I fear this Snatch block has broken up. I am now in lovely Andrew Wights’s workshop under the care of my consultant Graham. He has stripped me down and found what can only be described as a real mess. He went back to Biggar and found a We will provide the complete gearbox that should do with a lot of service for all your steel framed adapting and that is the story so far. building requirements I will be at the Border Union, come • Straw Sheds • Stable Blocks hell or high water, with or without a Dr. Graham with my new • Riding Arenas • Muck Middens functioning winch.

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

We’ve got every drilling system covered this autumn The NEW Kuhn Espro min-til drill Greater output with lower power requirement. The ESPRO seed drills combine tilling, levelling and seeding in one pass to ensure regular field emergence after the plough as well as in min-till conditions. The series requires comparatively little traction power and ensures precise seed distribution and placement.

July 7th 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. Having been to a number of trials visits and had a good nose at plenty of crops, I’ve come to the conclusion, mine don’t look too shabby! Yet again it is a case of getting off the farm to gain some perspective on what’s happening at home. It is all too easy to walk your own fields and get into a negative mind set when in fact everyone else is in the same position. However it’s making the time to get off the place that is the difficult thing. It is especially tricky this year with us having expanded the area we can now irrigate while trying to fit in holidays at the same time. Having increased the area of Maris Piper we grow to about 150 acres we now grow 250 acres of varieties that are susceptible to this disease. To counter this threat we have added an extra two irrigation reels, one pump and 1500m of pipe to our arsenal. This means that we now have one reel for every 30 odd acres of potatoes. While this does give very good coverage it also means that most of the day is taken up with moving the things. It’s not too bad a job as long as there are at least two people! We are also often running two reels from one pump, this means that with a bit of good planning you don’t need to stop the pump, which saves a bit more hassle. It always surprises me (even after all these years) that you can finish one irrigation run, move the reel then re-pressurise the pipe, which then promptly develops a leak! Cue irritation and swear words! As of today (7/7/19) the earliest Piper are nearly past the point of scab control and are looking ok, there is a “fleck” of scab, especially on really sandy parts of fields. It has been a bit of a task trying to irrigate those areas enough without drowning the heavier bits which are in the same run. Maybe I’m needing to apply a bit more precision to my irrigation techniques, possibly using GPS on the gun? Cereal harvest is at least a month away for us but that doesn’t mean we are much quieter. Most of the cereals are sold for July movement so that means we will be loading lorries and cleaning stores this month in preparation for the new crop coming in. In addition to this there is the usual weekly spraying of potatoes and carrots. This has been left in my hands for a couple of weeks as the sprayer operator has been away on his honeymoon (congratulation BTW). Little does he know that in his absence I very nearly rolled it after a tyre blew off (didn’t get any pictures though) and was only saved by the boom John Renton - Agricultural Engineer, Chirnside holding it up. Many thanks go to local contractor KDM for helping Tel: 01890 818807 Fax: 01890 818366 Mob: 07774 163899 out with spraying and also to Redpath tyres getting me back in the also On-site Hydraulic Hose Service field as soon as possible. I have sprayed that field since but I was 1, 2 & 4 Wire Hose • Pressure Washer Hose certainly a bit more careful the second time! BSP, JIC, ORFS, Metric & Flange Fittings, Adaptors, Finally, it has been suggested that it must always be foggy in Brake Couplings, Q/R Couplings, etc Perthshire, when in fact it’s just me needing a new camera phone!

Talking........Livestock

July 8th 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. When it is 17.5 degrees Celsius with fair weather cloud and a gentle breeze, I can think and work my best and that is how it has been this last few days and it was great. We could complain and say it was too late for some peoples 1st cut and indeed some of our own but at least it did turn better leaving the hay/haulage people in a good position this time. Silage seepage and ground compaction are the two things I try to avoid regardless of the date or silage quality, but on balance this year I had to accept a little of both to get finished up. Some aeration will have to be carried out to try and remedy the what should hopefully be light compaction. Wheel sizes on trailers could be an area needing consideration if a wet time arises again. Ground in general has been as badly leached as I have seen it for some time, so compound fertiliser and a lime top up will hopefully get things back on track. In general there is an abundance of forage in the area as well as on farm, so yes it is an opportunity to reduce further costs but we won’t get complacent, so we will ensile more silage whenever possible as it is only 12 months ago since there was a shortage. As the photo shows the cows are on a nice clover filled sward, which was nonexistent during the wet time, so while it is here it will be used to reduce meal usage but the downside is that the parlour pit is a dangerous place at the moment! I’m sure many of you are experiencing the poor beef prices that we are having here in NI. The last of our finished heifers went last week with good kill out % and grading R’s but the cheque has left us deciding to Ai the beef heifers for my usual customers in the hope that the scourge of TB soon passes by. It is helping to train them to come to the yard which is helping general management and making them quieter. Winter crop is looking quite well and let’s hope it continues through to harvest, meanwhile Spring Barley isn’t so hot as weather timing has hurt it. I wouldn’t be a big TV watcher but there seems to be different documentaries on about the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, it is eerie watching and the reality of it with the cover ups and the lasting radiation is serious and leaves our job look simple. So let’s enjoy it for what it is for NEW HOLLAND L218 SKIDSTEER WITH TRAILER now while the fair weather clouds SANDYSTONES HIRE remain!

On Our Farm

July 9th 2019 Hugo Lee farms in partnership with his father, Guy, at Sandystones, near St Boswells. Arable crops of wheat, oilseed rape, malting barley, oats 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 & partidge poults are raised. Driving round the country over the last week I don’t think that I have ever seen so much hay being made. I just hope that everyone has manged to get it in and undercover before the weather broke last night. As I drove back from Oban yesterday there were lots of tractors, rakes, balers and loaders frantically rushing around trying to get finished in time. There will certainly be no shortage of forage this year with all the quality hay and huge silage crops that have been cut. The farm is looking really good at the moment and the crops are showing great potential. All we need now is a steady run into harvest with plenty of sunshine for grain fill. Thoughts are beginning to turn to next year’s cropping and once again I will be choosing the cleanest varieties even if this means sacrificing a bit of yield potential. As we continue to lose key fungicides we can no longer rely on ‘the can’ to get us out of trouble. For this reason I will be growing Extase winter wheat next season which has shown fantastic disease resistance on both national and locals trials. I continue to learn in farming nothing is ever perfect, something for a perfectionist like me finds hard to stomach. As I mentioned above the farm is looking very good however this is not entirely true. Our EACS wild bird seed plots look awful; they have been hammered by flea beetle and on the heavier ground by slugs. These areas will be re drilled tomorrow and finger crossed they will grow away from the pest pressures. However it does not bode well for establishing Sundance winter wheat oilseed rape this autumn - I fear that we could be fighting a losing battle against soaking up the rays the dreaded beetle. If we continue to have warm dry summers and autumns, oilseed rape could soon become a thing of the past. It is already no longer being grown in large parts of southern England, France and Germany. Flea beetle damage The recent dry spell has coincided well with the start of pheasant deliveries over the past couple of weeks and it really does make the whole job a lot easier. I just hope that we miss the thunderstorms which are forecast for the next few days. Not only do the pheasants not like them but I am slightly worried about my winter oats which are well over Wilf and Tilly’s height and in places even up to my chest! This week we welcomed a new member to the team at Sandystones. Shaun is on the BMR Pre-Apprenticeship programme and will be working for us until Christmas. I have always been very keen to get young people into Tilly and Wilf getting our industry and I think that this scheme is I fantastic way of doing this. lost in the oats maze, Once again we are all very much looking forward to seeing you at the Border Union show. Our stand will be I hope it’s still in its usual position just off the main ring. standing at harvest

Talking.........Organic

July 8th 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. Silage is all safely gathered in. What a difference a year makes in grass growth. What other business could survive with a 40% reduction in production from one year to another. This is a prime example of how, due to circumstances outside of the farmers control, it is just not possible to produce for the environment and produce food for the nation all to the highest standards in the world, at the best value in the world without financial support. We purchased a front mower with roller conditioner this year which has removed a considerable amount of stress and enabled us to just cut in the afternoons when the sugars are at their highest. It also better balances the tractor and reduces wheelings. This all came about after listening to a speaker at the Kelso Agricultural Discussion Society - so many thanks for inviting Claire and I to speak at your event. There really was a “take home message”! Houses 1 – 4 hens are due for depletion this month. Shell quality is deteriorating, which is to be expected at this age, and the time has come to be quite commercial and clear out this flock, clean the shed down and start again. The new flock will come in the middle of next month. We have a number of improvements that we would like to make to the house so the relevant teams, including electricians, system and house builders are set to come next month once we have mucked out and washed down. The new hens are doing well with production currently sitting at 95% in houses 5-8. These hens are generally behaving; however, we still have some areas of the system which are favoured by a group of hens. There can be 30-40 eggs all laid in one spot, you clear the eggs, go back 30 minutes later and there are eggs there again. It can feel a bit relentless at times. Ideally these birds would all lay in the nest boxes, however the positive is they are all in one area. The negative is that it can result in broken and dirty eggs. Chippindale Foods, our packer, have had huge success this week, picking up an award for Egg Packer of the Year 2019 at the Egg and Poultry awards as well as winning the Sustainable Food & Farming Award from Compassion in World Farming for the work that they have been doing with producers like ourselves having bee friendly ranges. The Bulls went out on the 1st of the month and so far, touch wood, none have returned due to any misdemeanors. We have invested a considerable amount of money in their winter housing to enable them to get enough exercise and remain fit and ready for action at a moment’s notice. The Hoggs and Tups are all clipped, however we are awaiting the return of the clipping team. The fridge is full of beer and the larder full of food in a vain attempt to entice them back earlier! 50

Talking........from Lincolnshire

July 1st 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. Well the farm was dry, very dry in fact and then it turned wet, very wet and we are now back to dry again. The crops were just starting to suffer and then 138mm came just in the nick of time, although a fair portion disappeared straight down the cracks and was in the Wash within 24hrs. For some more leggy crops locally the 43mm combined with 40mph winds on the Monday night left them flat on the floor, but luckily I have been largely unaffected. With all the wheat this year looking free of blackgrass I decided that every wheat field with any historical grass weed legacy would be handrogued; a final knockout blow if you like. This is a practice I have been doing for some years now and proves very effective, as long as the roguers are disciplined and stick to their one metre spacings. It must be said that the majority of the roguers were excellent, with a very stern Romanian in charge who said little, and even less in English, but they worked hard despite some dismal conditions. On the two of the worst weather days I did go and help them to show a little solidarity, and it was very noticeable that only 5% of the blackgrass being pulled was autumn germinated and the 4 loads of blackgrass from 130ha. Success remaining 95% was spring germinated. So this has curtailed the stay of Siskin as my main wheat variety as despite its excellent disease credentials it does not fill the row well enough. This now means that I am going round trials plots trying to find a wheat variety with the growth habits more akin to barley. After the success of shallow (approx. 50mm) cultivations last autumn I bought a Gregoire Besson Discordon over the winter to use as a donor machine for my own shallow cultivator. All the machines demoed were very good, but at £8500/m I could not justify one and I wanted a tine based machine with spacings of no more than 15cm between tines. It turns out that machines like this are like hens teeth, especially at the width that I want which will ultimately be 7.5m. The technical drawings are now complete; I am just waiting upon some quotations for the fabrication. I have had 2 fabricators lined up but they have both since dropped out but I am hopeful for being up and The “new” cultivator running for mid-August. This week I am heading north to judge farms in the Kelso and District Agricultural Discussion Society Management Competition. I am invited to bring a guest so I have managed to tear my old Uni housemate Jethro away from his tedder for a few days to assist with some livestock knowledge. So get the yard swept and the nettles cut back, we will shortly be on our way… 52

Talking.........Business with Bell Rural Solutions

July 2019 Michael Bell is Managing Director of Bell Rural Solutions, based in their office in Earlston. Michael provides professional advice to clients on a variety of issues throughout Scotland and Northern England, is a Member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors a RICS Registered Valuer and Agent for the AMC. The last few weeks have been a period of transition at Bell Rural Solutions. At the end of June, we sadly had to say goodbye to Paul Richardson who made the difficult decision to leave the business in order to take up the unexpected yet exciting opportunity to work with his wife’s family who farm in the Scottish Borders. A month later, we are pleased to be welcoming Connie Wishart to join the team as a Graduate Rural Surveyor. Having previously studied Rural Business Management at SRUC and more recently having worked at another local firm, Connie brings excellent knowledge and youthful enthusiasm with her to help further expand the business going forward. Our government is also in a period of transition. At the time of writing this it is unclear who the Conservative Party will choose to lead their party and become the next Prime Minister. Will it be Jeremy Hunt or the bookies favourite Boris Johnson. Either way, we face a good few months of further uncertainty while they get settled into the role and try and make the best of Brexit before the 31st October deadline. There is also speculation over whether a snap general election might be held while Labour under Jeremy Corbyn slump to their worst ever ratings in the polls, calling his leadership of the party into question. All this political uncertainty is drastically effecting money markets and exchange rates. Great if you are looking to borrow money for your next project because it has never been cheaper, but not so good if you want to be certain on the price you will get for what you produce, the price you will have to pay for the commodities you have to buy and the level of subsidy payment you can expect to receive. In my opinion, it is this uncertainty that is preventing the majority of people from feeling comfortable in making the bigger decisions in life and business, and why the status quo for the time being is felt to be the safest option. However, Fortune Favours the Brave, a well-known phrase adopted by many including the Royal Air Force station based at East Fortune, in East Lothian, while operational in the First World War and between 1940 and 1947. If you already have a reasonably robust business and you are wanting to undertake a project, like building a new shed which will further improve efficiency or you require a capital injection to facility your succession planning or you wish to expand your business by buying further land, you should carefully consider what is holding you back from taking the plunge. The ability to borrow money at the current rates of interest have not been seen for a generation. The world will always need to eat and therefore farmers will always be required to produce quality food at a competitive price. I also think it is very unlikely that Government policy will ever change significantly to altogether remove subsidies paid to those occupying land as this would relinquish the level of control over the countryside they currently enjoy. Bell Rural Solutions are an agent for the Agricultural Mortgage Corporation who are prepared to lend up to 60% of the value of the property or land you use as security for a term of up to 30 years on a repayment or interest only basis with a choice of fixed or variable interest.

NFU Insured Organically Certified Food Grade

July 10th 2019

We are in the very fortunate position that we can go away as often as we like but, whenever we are at home, I am always found a job! We walk out of our house adding two more dogs to the menagerie at the bottom of the road, where Hugo and Jess live, who also willingly look after Titus the Tortoise. It is rather self-indulgent and can be boring to hear about other people’s holidays but having Guy Lee just returned from a week’s cycling in Transylvania I came back so full of enthusiasm for the Taking a break place and the activity that I wanted to share it. There were ten of us in our team and I think I can speak for all of them when I say that it was one of the best holidays we have been on. It certainly was not an endurance ride with hardly a piece of Lycra between us, whilst six of our party had electric bikes, the four who came from North Northumberland and the Borders had no assisted power. We had two local guides who spoke very good English and knew the history of this beautiful part of the world. We rode from one Saxon village to another, each a valley apart, which entailed either going up and over the hill or round the head. We rode up to 30 miles a day with stops for beer, before a surprise picnic lunch laid out in a field, and then a rest in the 30°C heat before we set off for our next nights stop. Sometimes we would walk for part of the day in wonderful wildflower meadows and beautiful oak and beech forests. Our luggage was moved ahead each day, we stayed in converted Saxon farmhouses, an ancient Hungarian mansion, and one hotel - every night somewhere very different. The Saxons had been invited by the King of Hungary to settle in Transylvania in the 13th century to guard against marauding tribes. They built villages just like those they had left in Northern Europe. They cleared the land and for 800 years led a very ordered life. They never integrated fully into Romanian or Hungarian society always speaking German and marrying amongst their own. They lived happily through many turbulent periods of history, more recently the fall of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, two world wars and then behind the Iron Curtain. In the 1990’s, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Germany offered the Saxons Typical Saxon village citizenship and the opportunities of well paid work. Over a period of ten years the majority of families left their beautiful houses and abandoned their land. In many cases the gypsies have moved in but without the respect and maintenance that the Saxons had. We covered 130 miles and in that time we only saw one fence and never had to open any gates. In one village we witnessed the animals coming down from the meadows. There were about 500 head, mostly milking cows but also sheep, goats and horses, and as they came down into the main street they took themselves to their respective homes! Around every corner was a surprise and I would thoroughly recommend this adventure. www.theslowcyclist.co.uk Cows coming down from the meadows 58

July 7th 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. Last month we were about to be audited for our consent to farm. We now have the report. Despite the boys being slightly worse for wear from the effects of winning a finals rugby game and being a little unsure as to what to expect from this audit, I think we did ok. Our soil, fertiliser, irrigation, livestock, offal, riparian and effluent management all achieved an A pass which was gratifying. Our kaitiakitanga (guardianship of the environment) was considered exemplary which put a smile on the faces of our eels and mudfish. However we still failed. It was reported shortly after I got the report that there was a large earthquake in California... it wasn’t the fault line letting go it was me erupting. Apparently half the soils on the half of the dairy farm (complicated I know but stay with me) where we spread effluent have been reclassified as being poorly drained, and therefore of high risk when it comes to spreading effluent by way of irrigation. If they were classified as free draining then they are deemed as low risk soils for effluent application (less storage needed). Because of the reclassification we now have to have about 1 million litres of storage. What caused several of the after-shocks was when I was told those same soils are still classified as free draining when it comes to calculating our nutrient loss from leaching. Our effluent management is separately inspected several times a year by the regional council (Ecan) and by Fonterra to ensure we are operating within the confines of our effluent consent. We have always passed those inspections and on none of these visits was a lack of sufficient storage flagged as a problem so I was a little discombobulated by the new requirements; and felt compelled to tell the Fonterra and Ecan people my opinion of them. The good news is that the tremors should die down soon as I am recovering my equilibrium. We have commissioned the construction of an above ground tank that will plug into our existing effluent infrastructure ( as shown in the photo). We have also decided to up grade the effluent irrigator to a new model that will help the team be able to spread manure more efficiently. We hope to have the new system up and running by the end of August. So some good may come from all this I hope as I did Tel have to tell the Boss that her winter holiday fund has been A poor substitute for a diverted into sorting out cowshit. winter holiday.
