NO STOPPING ME NOW

July 2021

I was on the verge of going on strike and refusing to go on any more jobs when, in the nick of time, he booked me in with the chiropodist to get my brakes looked at. It’s alright for him as he is sitting behind me but I had my engine in my radiator every time we came to a hill not knowing if I would stop in time. Maybe I am becoming overcautious in my old age as we always did come to a halt when necessary and never came close to an unfortunate incident. Anyway a week in A B Wight’s workshop and I came out feeling a new person, stopping in an instance and feeling so much more confident. How I wish they had been fixed a week earlier as I did not enjoy the latest recovery job. First he was sent a photo of this John Deere tractor and trailer on its side on a hill near Stow, could I pull it upright and then on to flat ground higher up. Even he, who usually says yes before he hears the question, was hesitant. We were then given a virtual tour of the scene by WhatsApp, still our presence was requested. At that point he said “Yes” and we were on our way. The photo does not show how steep the hill was. I could not see the tractor from my pulling position and he needed a guide to tell me when to pull and when to stop. The first job was to detach the trailer from the tractor, Ian from Stow was summoned and with a cordless angle grinder he cut through the eye. Then my cable was attached round the loader frame and up she came, the next task was to turn the tractor through 900 so I could pull it up the hill. In the process of doing that the tyre came off the rim which meant steering the tractor with no engine power and a flat tyre was very difficult. Like a Phoenix from the Ashes, the tractor appeared at the top of the hill and next door to me. The cable was detached and dragged back down to pull the trailer and bucket up. With that achieved my job was complete and all I had to do was to drive home. More easily said than done, as my spades were stopping me from going down the hill, but with them out of the ground I had visions of my fairly ineffective brakes not being sufficient to hold me. I stalled three times until he got the message that we must be extremely careful or it could all end in tears. Fortunately the ground was dry and on my fourth attempt I got away and after a mile on a rough track ended up back on a tarmac road. I have had a great three months, apart from pulling the usual hen houses, I have recovered a bogged tractor, a stuck effluent lorry, a couped sprayer and lastly this rolled tractor. What next?

Talking........Organic

July 7th 2021 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 first cut of silage is safely gathered in! I had thought we would be a little later this year in cutting due to the late spring, however we’ve managed to cut at our normal time, as compensatory growth has been fantastic. I’m not sure it would win any awards with a variety of yields, some being light, but good quality, but others heavy with the grass having gone to seed yet plenty of clover in the bottom of the sward. However, we will manage to feed and grow the stock on it. The moment the sheet was on, the heavens opened, and it hasn’t yet stopped. The rain is much needed as we were seriously dry and the pastures and wholecrop desperately needed a drink. This will undoubtedly help with the second cut. Getting the silage cut has taken priority over the clipping. They’re here this morning, as we managed to house the Suffolk ewes, hoggs and tups yesterday afternoon whilst they were dry, which should be enough for the clippers today. We have been feacal egg sampling the ewes and lambs with batches needing worming. A first Ovivac and pour on for fly control. Lambs are growing well. Sadly, calving has ended on a low. Generally, we have had a good calving, however the last White Galloway to calve managed to stand on her Hereford X heifer calf. On postmortem we discovered that its stomach had been torn. In the space of a week, we go from the end to the start of the season with the Bulls going out. They’ve all been tested and everything should be fine however these boys appear to be secret performers as we have not yet managed to spot too much activity to date. We are getting into a routine with the holiday cottage and have received some very positive feedback from the guests to date. It is great to be able to provide a base for families to enjoy Northumberland and the Borders and, from the comments, guests will happily travel for the right activity. Hadrian’s Wall and the beaches being popular day trips. The hot tub has been a real success, especially with the warmer weather, but I’m wondering whether we ought to risk assess the use whilst there is thunder and lightning present! With the powerful storms providing much needed rain, they also bring with them potential problems; flooding and crop damage as well as the challenge of getting things done at the best time. However, we should not forget the risks associated with working in these conditions. I heard of a very near miss this week as a friend’s tractor was struck by lightning as he was preparing for the week ahead. Fortunately, he is fine and the tractor is ok, but there might be a bit of damage to the on-board computer. I hope he bought a lottery and Euro Millions ticket that day as he was exceptionally lucky. If you are only going to read one book this year, read this, “Grass Fed Nation” by Graham Harvey. An enlightening read on nutrition, health and why we should all be eating grass fed food !

On Our Farm

July 7th 2021 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 and 14,000 organic point of lay pullets are reared each year. It seemed strange to see the roof continually coming on and off at Wimbledon last week as we enjoyed another lovely fine sunny spell of weather. My brother in law came to stay for the weekend and whilst the children and their cousins tried to take Posy’s Slippy slide title away from her, we managed to sneak out and play a quick round of golf. He could not believe how dry it was compared to the south, some of the fairways had really started to burn off. It will be very interesting to see what effect all this rain/lack of sunlight will have on yields in the south. I read one report recently that said conditions were worse than in 2012! Another beautiful day in the Borders Crops on the whole look promising here with Winter Barley starting to turn quite quickly. Despite the recent dry spell septoria is easy to find in the Skyscraper winter wheat despite it having had a very robust fungicide programme. I think this was due to the very cold spring and wet May. Although there is a huge choice of winter wheat varieties for the coming season they all seem to have their issues which doesn’t make decision making that easy. The worst crop on the farm is the AECS wild bird mixes which despite the dry weather have been hit hard by slugs. It really frustrates me when they don’t grow as they look a mess for the rest of the year. We will have to re drill some of them this week. Next year I think I will try to direct drill them all after the success of the Green manure establishment over the past two seasons. Summer holidays seem to have come around very quickly and we are off to Cornwall at the end of next week with Jess’s family. It may just be me but whenever I am about to go away it’s always seems to be the busiest time. We have 60t of wood to chip, wholecrop rye to agbag, barley to bruise, second cut silage to make, a hen shed to deplete and 40 cattle to clip! As soon as we get back harvest will start and the hen shed will need moving, washing and restocking. Grass growth has been incredible over the last month and we seem to have gone from famine to feast overnight. Stock on the whole cannot keep up with the growth and our two toppers have been flat out. All our customers have been very happy with the new machines and so far they have stood up well to the heavy workload. Trips to Jess’s parents over the past 16 months have been few and far between due to the pandemic. However I am secretly rather pleased as these trips are proving quite expensive. Last summer we came back with a new car and this year Jess came back with a horse. ‘Spoons’ is proving to be a great success and I appear to have been demoted from Daddy to groom/stable lad!

Talking........New Zealand

July 5th 2021 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. I was told to watch Jeremy Clarkson’s farming show on TV… that is all very well but it was on Netflix which is technology I have yet to master despite apparently subscribing to it for nearly 2 years. Luckily the wee fella came to my rescue and pressed enough magic buttons and my “smart” TV, which I have also had for nearly 2 years, offered me the great Jeremy Clarkson. His show reminded me of the similarities of problems and opportunities all farmers face regardless of where they farm in the world. The need to do things on time, the constant disappointment with too much or too little rain, the stupidity of bureaucracy, the ravages of pests and weeds, the vagaries of the market and the stupidity of bureaucrats are all things we have in common. The weather did seem to be particularly atrocious for him for his first stint at being a farmer. Drought and floods are, we are told, likely to be common-place from now on due of course to climate change; even Jeremy had that fact down pat. I hope someone has told him the really good years only come occasionally. I think I have mentioned stupid bureaucrats already, but a young chap from up in the Rakaia Gorge rang me to say he had just been issued an abatement notice for having a non-compliant fish screen on a hydroelectricity/irrigation intake. The young chap was slightly aggrieved because the non-compliant fish screen was hard to inspect as it Happy cows on kale was buried under several meters of shingle and rocks due to a landslide that had been triggered by the floods a month ago. Apparently this was not a problem for our highly efficient bureaucrat because the onus was on the farmer to be compliant and he clearly could not demonstrate that so he must therefore be non-compliant, hence the abatement notice. I will have to point out to our council’s CEO that I am not paid enough as a councillor to have to sort out this sort of stupidity. But back to Clarkson. Watching his show reminded me also of the significant differences in our farming especially how we manage livestock and sell our produce. Because we produce a thousand times more food in NZ than we can eat, we are geared to sell nearly everything overseas. This means, despite being highly attuned to our markets, they are remote in distance and time and for the most part culture; whereas to a large extent your markets are the people in the town or city down the road who may be quite similar to you. The other major difference is how we manage livestock; and I know Clarkson and his 75 ewes and 85 chickens is not a fair representation of livestock farmers in the UK, but watching the programme reminded me how we in NZ have progressed with fancy technology. In return for getting my TV going I helped the wee fella weigh some lambs. He, well the dogs actually, weighed 1600 lambs and 4 way drafted them in a short day. My contribution was to open and shut the odd gate. Apparently he hasn’t taught the dogs how to do that yet. The market for these lambs looks really strong Wintering lambs so I hope Clarkson still has his sheep. 42

Talking........Business with SAC Consulting

July 2021

With harvest approaching and fertiliser prices increasing now is a good time to plan nutrient testing of soil. Postharvest sampling before the application of mucks or slurry is the ideal timing. New Routine Soil Test - Routine soil analysis to measure soil pH and the status of plant nutrients phosphate, potash and magnesium has been the bedrock of nutrient planning for many years. The SAC Consulting routine soil test has been updated and now reports: • pH, Phosphate, Potash, Magnesium • Calcium • Loss on ignition; providing a measure of organic matter • Calcium magnesium ratio and cation exchange capacity in the soil (CEC); to provide a guide on choice of liming product. Donald Dunbar It is worth noting the extraction method used is Morgans Modified which was specifically developed for Scottish acid soils and gives a more accurate measure available phosphate and potash than the Olsen method (result reported by index). GPS Grid Sampling for pH - Getting the soil pH to target is the foundation of good nutrient management but pH can still vary significantly within a field. This can be caused by changing soil type and historic merging of fields, but the main reason is probably down to past spreading accuracy which was previously only as good as the eye of the driver. GPS technology allows multiple sampling areas across a field to be accurately mapped and then analysed. The resulting grid map enables lime to be variably applied to raise areas of low pH and avoid over liming of areas at target or high pH. Grid size can vary from ¼ to 1/ha with ¼ recommended for arable cropping. This reliable method of mapping and sampling ensures that the variation within a field is identified and removed and will result in a more consistent crop and increased yield. Grain Nutrient Analysis - This is a relatively new approach with analysis of grain post-harvest previously done by the grain buyer. However, grain nutrient analysis post-harvest pioneered by ADAS and the Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) could become a useful additional nutrient management tool. The theory is grain analysis can indicate the nutrients a crop was short of or oversupplied with during the growing season e.g. nitrogen. The data can also be used to calculate the field nutrient offtake in the grain. The grain nutrient test measures the 12 essential major and trace elements required for crop growth. So far, the critical thresholds are known for nitrogen, phosphate, sulphur and manganese. There is less certain evidence of critical levels for potash, magnesium, copper and zinc with levels for calcium, boron, iron and molybdenum currently not known. To reduce the seasonal variation caused by weather or crop disease grain nutrient sampling is best done each year. All of the above tests can be complete by the SAC Consulting analytical services. If you would like to find out more about any of the above contact your local office. We can help with interpretation of results, fertiliser recommendations and NVZ plans.

Tom Pate farms 240ha of arable on a tenanted farm in Angus. Cropping includes wheat, spring barley, rye and oilseed rape along with land let for potatoes and vining peas. Additionally, around 6500 pigs are reared annually under contract and 600 Christmas turkeys sold directly to the public under the KellyBronze franchise. On his wife’s 380ha family farm in the Angus Glens they also run 200 red deer hinds plus followers for venison production, along with developing a forestry enterprise. I am no climate change denier. In fact I think the damage humans are inflicting on the planet in terms of climate, pollution and loss of biodiversity globally are accelerating and desperate action is required. I am, however, deeply sceptical of some of the environmental policies and solutions that are being adopted. Many are misguided, poorly executed or a distraction from the hard truths. I am particularly doubtful of the move to electric vehicles. I understand the desire to reduce the emissions from fossil fuels and our overdependence on petrol and diesel is clear. However, electric vehicles still require vast amounts of resources and energy in their construction and running. Perhaps the air of our cities will be cleaner as we silently whoosh around in our electric cars and the vast majority of electricity will come from renewable sources. But the lithium and cobalt required for the lithium-ion batteries has to come from somewhere and unfortunately most of that comes from countries where the environment is fairly low down the list of priorities. I’m not sure how sustainable extracting cobalt from areas such as the Democratic Republic of Congo is and whether supply can meet demand of what are finite resources. There is also the small matter of adapting our infrastructure to allow everyone to drive electrically, which will no doubt require yet more utilisation of metals, minerals, plastics and energy. Electric cars and vans are with us now, albeit with limited range, as manufacturers vie to be ahead of the rivals in this “greener” electrified future but making lorries, tractors, heavy plant and aircraft electric is far more challenging. I fear the rush to electric will be sheer folly. Don’t worry however, for I have a solution! To be honest Rudolph Diesel the inventor of the compression engine had the idea first. He was somewhat enthusiastic about the engines running on vegetable oil and in fact demonstrated one of his engines running on 100% peanut oil. However, at the start of the 20th century extraction of petroleum oil was cheap, plentiful and easily accessible and the world’s oil companies had more sway than the peanut farmers. Thus, the development of the engine was directed towards the petroleum-based rather than plant-based fuel. Imagine if by some historical twist Rudolph’s plant-based biodiesel proved the winner. We could all, some 100 years later, be driving around in vehicles running on sustainable fuel and jetting off on aircraft running on bio-ethanol. Any carbon emitted from the combustion process would be negated by the growing of the plant and we wouldn’t be dependent on foreign oil producers or indeed lithium mines Turkey poults warm and dry in west Africa. The wealth would be spread across the farming areas of the world. Flying auger – in the brooding shed changing the central The challenges of perfecting biodiesel and bioethanol to run in all engines in all climates auger on our Opico grain drier with the and indeed producing both food and fuel from the land are, to me, far more easily overcome than attempting to electrify our transportation. Alas the fervour around electric vehicles is gaining and I fear we are heading in the wrong direction for the planet. help of a 30t crane Back on the farm I have been burning propane gas keeping turkey chicks warm under brooders, burning diesel making silage for the deer and burning petrol delivering kids to various engagements during the long school holidays.

Talking........from Lincolnshire

July 4th 2021 Will Howe is an arable farmer from Sleaford, Lincolnshire. The soils are predominantly heavy. There is 365ha of cropping including winter wheat, spring beans, spring oats and the introduction of grass leys used to rear Native Dairy X calves. He also manages a contracting business Thorpe Farming Ltd. As I sit here with the lightening flashing, the thunder grumbling and the rain lashing against the window; is it wrong as a livestock farmer to think “oh no, not more grass”? The plan was to solely graze my grass but a combination of being understocked and very “growy” weather means I now have a pile of bales a Pharoah would be proud of. One field had an application of 30kgN/ha the day after it was last grazed and then 35 days later produced 25 round bales per ha. I don’t remember grass growing as quick on the thin sand or Weald clay in Sussex. I keep feeling that I ought to put all my grass leys into a GS4 herb and legume mix as I will 35 days growth then get paid as part of an environmental scheme. The current leys have plenty of clover in them, and a smattering of herbs but my nitrogen-free trial plot is not all that exciting. The combinable crops all look really well. The wheat looks full of potential and is a lot taller than normal despite a robust pgr program. The spring oats on the other hand look like a dwarf variety. I was sick of hoovering oats up off the floor so told my agronomist he was not to let them go down. Given my reputation for hiring and firing agronomists, which I maintain is unfair; he evidently felt nervous so they are so short they are going to require a good whack with the reel to get them on the table! The most exciting news is that after 16 years of working on my own I have finally taken the plunge to employ someone. Alex has little experience but seems hugely motivated and keen to learn. Her first day was a baptism of fire as we gave all the cattle an IBR nasal spray and the one lunatic steer we have tried to jump out of the crush and only succeeded in snapping the front of its hoof which required some emergency first aid, but she coped very well. Her main duties are with the cattle and a poultry enterprise we are setting up next spring. With harvest fast approaching a well-deserved holiday is imminent. The Greeks will be disappointed not to hear my witty banter but the locals of Gloucestershire will be more than delighted I am sure. I must confess to having always resisted holidaying in the UK as I struggle to switch off, but after the last 18 months just to watch the rain out of a window The no nitrogen trial stands out with a different view will be great! 48

Talking........from the boundary

July 5th 2021 I had an unplanned tour around the Borders and Midlothian today. The plan when I left Sandystones at 09:30 was to drive Wendy to Halls Farm just south of Penicuik arriving at 11:00 to pull a hen shed. The distance is 39 miles, which at Wendy’s top speed of 33mph should take at the least the 90 minutes I had allowed. What I keep on forgetting to take into account are the new 20mph speed limits through every town, village and hamlet. In the Borders, my ambition was to get caught speeding in Wendy as her top speed is very close to the previous town limits of 30. But not now, everywhere there is a 20mph limit, there is also a flashing warning giving you either a green speed meaning well done, or more likely a red Guy Lee number saying Slow Down. No one wants to see fatalities in built up areas and I accept that 20 mph might be a sensible limit on residential areas where children could be playing football, riding bikes etc but I do think that it is a ridiculously slow speed on roads such as the A68 through Jedburgh, St Boswells, Earlston and Lauder. We have been told it is an experiment but with the • Sales investment in signs and symbols it seems unlikely to be reversed. • Service & Hire The net effect of this was that the 90 minutes I had allocated was North-East not enough time.
