The Calibrate

Heat/Chill Solution Do you have a potato store, dairy farm, grain dryer or refrigeration process?

“Calibrate created an innovative design that reduced fossil fuel costs and streamlined our systems and processes. It is great to see that this design was seen to fruition with great communication, I would happily recommend Calibrate.� Mr. Tom Cargill Coldstream Farm, Laurencekirk

1,000-10,000 Tonnes (1-6 sheds) 998kW Heatpump

What is a Heatpump Heat / Chill system? A Heatpump Heat / Chill system uses Heat naturally occurring in the ground, the Heat is increased with a 350% efficient Heatpump to the required Heating output whilst deriving the 20 year Government RHI tariff. This Heating can be used for workshop and hot water Heating and daffodil drying. The byproduct of the Heating cycle is Chilled water, this can be used to Chill the potatoes to 2°c for storage.

Also benefitting from savings on average of

£100,000 on annual Chilling**

The Cargills are based in Laurencekirk, Aberdeen. This Heat / Chill system was designed to Heat the daffodil drying shed, workshop and the grading shed. There was also a Chilled coil to dehumidify the daffodils and Chill down the potato store for free. It was agreed that Calibrate’s 1mW Heatpump Heat / Chill system was the perfect solution for their existing technology and a retrofit could be organised. Drawing from two decades of Industrial Refrigeration knowledge, the Technical Director Morgan Corkill designed a fully automated simultaneous Heating and Chilling system capable of drying all of the daffodils and then Chilling down the potatoes for free whilst completely removing all fossil fuels onsite and speeding up the process for future development by up to 80%. The Figures • £2,330,197 of projected income and savings with the 20 year Government Tariff. • A 4-5 year payback on the 20 year scheme. • 25-35°c at 400% heating efficiency. • 1°c at 325% Chilling efficiency. • Total energy efficiency of 725%.

This system is OFGEM approved at the highest possible tariff of

9.56p per kW hr.

100% free Chilling down to 2°c for the potatoes means the Cargills maximise their income. Having opted for the comprehensive 20 year extended warranty they have fixed costs for all R&M to base their future overall income stream upon. A bespoke controller operates the technology via a cloud based system enabling Calibrate to monitor all aspects of the process and tariff generation meters online.

Wendy writes

YOU’RE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE ME WHEN…

June 2019

I tell you that, despite my prediction last month that we would be out of the European Union before I have my long awaited make over, it all happened so quickly I haven’t come to terms with the events of the past four weeks. He made the customary call to Chris, my private plastic surgeon, expecting to be told as usual that he had so much work on that he could not find time to book me in. Much to our surprise Chris said ‘Bring Wendy in next Monday, it will take us two weeks to complete the work. Please make sure she is ready for such invasive surgery, remove her back cover, and her flashing beacon, we will take care of the rest.’ He put the phone down and looked as though he was going to faint such was the unexpected shock to his bank account. At the end of that week Tony got me ready removing my old Stripped down, rusty and ready and damaged green tarpaulin and my ‘Mr Whippy’ as the young boss calls it. I spent a nervous weekend thinking of all the things that could go wrong being subjected to such an operation at my age. And suddenly it was Monday and we were off to the BCL (Border Coatings Ltd) in Earlston. I was left outside that night while they did various tests and he and her came in to confirm the colour for my respray. On the Tuesday work started. First it was a light sandblasting, then I was covered in gowns and prepared for the serious procedure. I was given local anaesthetic to numb the pain from deep rooted sandblasting which lasted for a number of days before new layers of paint were applied. They did my wheels, spades, inside my doors as well as the roof of the cab and all over my body outside. After what seemed like an eternity the doors of the operating theatre were opened, sunlight streamed in and I was allowed outside. A quick look in my mirrors showed what a great job Chris and his team had done. They had even given me new rear In theatre, gowned up and ready lights and wing mirrors. The young boss came to collect me from the BCL and drove me home where he and Tony fitted my new green cover. I can’t tell you how smart I looked, I felt ready for a Royal Garden Party! Where he was I don’t know but he certainly was not at home. He’s probably jealous of my new looks I thought to myself. On the Sunday the young man drove me over to Thirlestane Castle where I was entered for the Borders Vintage Automobile Club Classic. We were in Class 13 - Heavy Commercial Vehicles. Despite the inclement weather I felt and looked great. Many friends and admirers came up to say Back home after almost 2 weeks in the BCL ‘Hello’, not quite believing it was me. The young boss went off with his family and friends to look round the show. Whilst he was away I saw this rather serious looking man come over to our class. He looked the entries up and down, from the front and the back and then, before I could say ‘How do you do’ he had slapped How do I look? Pretty good, eh! a red rosette on my nose. We had won! Beaten the opposition, best in class and there was no one there for me to share such wonderful news with. How I wished old Big Red was around, he would have been so proud of me. Eventually the young man returned. You should have heard his whoops of joy when he saw what I was so proudly displaying on my front. Soon we were off to the main ring for the Champion of Champions. It was quite a performance for me to manoeuvre in a tight space that was more suited to Minis! I listened patiently as the first in each class was called out over the loudspeakers. When the winner of Class 13 was announced a loud cheer went round the ring and then it was on to the top prize. My name was not called out for the ‘Best in Show’ and as my heart sank the President (Bunny Maitland-Carew) took the microphone and proudly stated that “The winner of the Thirlestane Castle Challenge Cup is… (drum roll, heart beat – I now know exactly how the contestants on Strictly feel as 30 seconds of tension feels more like an eternity) ...Wendy!” What me? Two cups in two hours, you must be joking. He’ll have to build a trophy room for my silverware! Not only a magnificent cup, but also an invitation to take tea in the castle with Bunny and his family. As close as I will ever get to a In the main ring waiting for the winners to be announced Royal garden party.

Talking........from Lincolnshire

June 3rd 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. So in preparation for a well earnt holiday, I briefed my stand-in for the week (Dad) and gave him a list of jobs that needed doing. An afternoons work at best if you think I am taking advantage of an old soul. Dad has always thought you are only achieving something if you are crashing and banging about the place at a hundred miles an hour. It is the standing joke between me and the other drivers at harvest! Well with the team talk done and the reins officially handed over, I returned to the sprayer to finish a few loads so I could go on holiday knowing all the fieldwork was completed. The next thing I see is a plume of dust coming down the farm road, emerging from it is the little tractor backing up to the discs intending to level some ditch spoil where I am going to be planting a wild bird mix. “Keen” I thought but he is in charge. Approximately 20 minutes later dad is walking across the field with a snapped hitch in his hand, bearing in mind this hitch has had 300hp, 7 Thigh high spring oats subsoiler legs, discs and a cultipress going through it with no issues. And breathe… The holiday was our first foray into the murky world of all-inclusive hotels, principally to allow the kids to have access to more watersports etc. Our gravest concern was the food and particularly the fear that the Greeks might try and replicate British food believing this was to our taste. Our fears were soon put to rest as the food was amazing as was our room, once we had complained about being put in the wrong one. Who on earth wants to share a bedroom with their children for a week I don’t know; and then there were the people. The clientele in the early part of the week were what you would have imagined the Mediterranean to look like if Stalin has sided with Hitler. They were very Aryan and lacking in social skills or awareness of others as you got jabbed in the ribs by another sharp elbow at the breakfast buffet. There was one particular Russian who looked very similar to a pre-facelift Putin who sat by the pool at the entrance to the restaurant with an earpiece connected to his phone and a beer which stayed at the same level all day. He was either issuing hits on rebel Chechens, or directing a cyber robot army to install Michael Gove as our next PM. And then later in the week busloads of Brits turned up. I am not sure what was more embarrassing from my fellow countrymen; reserving sunbeds and then subjecting everyone else to their poor taste in music whilst drinking gallons of cheap lager and getting redder and redder or the fact they let their children watch ipads/phones at the dinner table. We did not see one British child, other than ours, reading a book all holiday which I found very disheartening. I think we might go back to a villa holiday next year… Balos, Crete PS The farm is still very dry 40

On Our Farm

June 12th 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. Last Wednesday, having studied every weather app and watched every forecast I could possibly find, I was not sure what to do. The previous days rain (12mm) had made the grass pretty wet and it had been showery all morning. Thursday looked dry, but by Friday it was going to turn very wet. With the forecast for the following weeks looking very unsettled I decided to go for it. We cut the grass late Wednesday afternoon spread it Thursday and ag-bagged it on Friday. Thankfully the gamble paid off and there should be some top quality silage to feed this winter. As many people are reporting across the country first cut yields are considerably better than last year, we are 4t/ha up. This could bode well for the arable crops, if the weather plays ball over the next month, there will certainly be no shortage of straw this year. The gamble paid off Our EACS scheme capital works which have to be completed in the first year continue at a pace. All the water margins in arable fields and wild bird seed mixes have been drilled and are starting to emerge. The scrape in the wader grazed grassland has been dug out and is already full of water. We have also improved the steading drainage. The surface drains all used to run into the burn below the buildings. This has now been stopped. All surface water from the steading now goes into a network of drains, gullies and silt traps before entering a swale and eventually a pond. The clean water from the pond then flows back into the burn. All the cattle court gates are now sheeted to the ground and rubber flaps installed on the bottom to prevent any manure from leaking onto the yard. Digging up a steading is not ideal especially when there are cattle to feed. A big thank you to Ian, Tony and Graham for doing such a fantastic job in such a short period of time. A quick update of the rest of the month’s farm excitements. Another 50t of wood was chipped Steading drainage works in full swing and after such a dry Winter/Spring, unsurprisingly it did not require any drying. All the hens sheds are at full production and keeping Alan and Davie busy. We are gearing up for the start of pheasant deliveries. Pheasant crates have been washed disinfected and filled with clean straw. Trailers and pickups are being serviced next week and then we should be ready. I just hope that this weather settles down a bit. With over 60mm forecast tonight combined with strong winds I really pray that all the crops are still standing tomorrow morning and there has been no flooding related issues. The pictures of crops coming out of Lincolnshire look horrendous with Winter and Spring Barley flat on the ground! I am looking forward to the Highland Show next week and hope to see many of you there.

Talking.........Organic

June 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. The weather is the thorn in our side at the moment. Typically, just as the silage is ready to cut someone turns the taps on. We are not alone, the grass growth rates in Northumberland have been exceptional, beating most other areas of the country. Most unusual! It’s now all about how to make best use of it. Faecal egg counts are now showing increased levels of nematodirus and strongyle worms so we have started worming those lambs with high counts. Through Techion UK we use Fecpack worm egg testing kit. Muck samples are weighed, mixed with water and made into a slurry to get the worms out. A measured amount of slurry is then mixed with more water and left to sit for 30 minutes. Another measured amount is mixed with saline solution. Two small samples are dropped into two wells in a cassette. We then pop the cassette into a piece of kit that magnifies and takes a photo of the samples. The photos are then sent to either the UK or NZ, depending on the time of day it is sent, and results are generally back within the hour. This is an invaluable tool for identifying types of worms and numbers, and therefore accurately worming those that need it. This saves us from treating those that are fine,and therefore saves us money on product. On the shopping list this year is an indoor muckstore and an office. Claire has currently taken over the dining room and with the increased levels of paperwork, it just isn’t practical anymore. The muckstore is needed for the manure. We’re going to have to stretch the budget to manage both in one year. The new multi species sward has come up a treat within the Barley and Vetch, in no small part helped by the weather. This is such a relief after last year’s failures and poor growth. Yet again we are reminded by how much our success lies in what we can’t control. This week we are hosting 40 plus scientists who are visiting from across Europe. Their remit is permanent pasture and are part of the PEST CONTROL Super G project. I think policy and lack of profitability have held Established 2005 back potential improvements in permanent grassland production. It will be interesting to hear their thoughts. Calving finished a couple of weeks ago, with the last few calving quite quickly in the end. It’s been a very busy spring with the new hens as well as the calving and lambing, so to actually step off the gas a bit has been welcome. The cycle starts again very quickly as the vaccination schedule has now started for this year’s heifers who will go to the bull at the beginning of July. One-off clearances to full maintenance contracts The new hens are starting to lay well, admittedly not quite where we Fully qualified technician, no obligation, free estimates want them to. This is creating quite a bit of extra work, but hopefully with some perseverance we will get them to lay in the nest boxes DANNY CASSIDY 07921 212 528 rather than the floor! danny@deadcertpestcontrol.co.uk

June 2019

Demand for On-shore Wind Farm Sites is Back The demand for on-shore wind farm sites by renewable energy developers is well and truly back on their agendas. Derek Bathgate of Davidson & Robertson (D&R) has fielded numerous enquiries over the past 6 months from several of the well-established renewable energy companies prospecting for sites to develop on-shore wind farms. The demand is specifically for sites in Scotland, not England, due to the different political appetites for renewable energy and on-shore wind farm development differs considerably. Current market payments from developers to land owners and secure agricultural tenants for hosting on-shore wind farm assets are no longer at the dizzy heights of the recent past, because new sites are operating in a subsidy free market, but they remain very attractive and can provide a significant diversified income to a farm business. Payments are not just limited to annual rental for the wind turbines, nor to the land holding upon which the wind farm is built. In addition to annual rental for wind turbines, the land owner/occupier hosting the wind farm can also benefit from: disturbance payments during the construction period, payment for rock and other aggregate won from site, rental for a substation or anemometer, etc. Neighbours and nearby properties can benefit financially by enabling the grid connection (accepting the power line across their land), or agreeing to sell or rent land to widen the road and enable a turbine to get around a corner, or for a bridge to be strengthened or a new one to be constructed. There will be many people reading this article who will be saying ‘we had a deal on the table, but it fell away when the subsidies stopped and the developer walked away’. Well, with the advances of technology – bigger turbines and more efficient machines – many sites that were written-off in the past, may now be financially viable for development. So, any land owners/occupiers who progressed discussions with developers that faltered when the subsidy regime came to an end are advised to get these sites back in front of the current list of developers prospecting for new sites. The key to a successful deal and maximising value is to engage Agents and Solicitors who understand these opportunities and the current market to negotiate Heads of Terms, Option and Lease agreements to your advantage, and to include your Accountant in reviewing business structures and tax planning, so that you keep as much of the income and capital that can materialise from such deals. D&R has significant experience and knowledge of this market and its professionals are well placed to negotiate commercial terms and keep clients advised through the development process to ensure successful outcomes, both financially and on the ground during the construction phase. Its Agents are always willing to collaborate with other professional advisers to achieve the best outcome for our clients. Davidson & Robertson is a company of Rural Surveyors and Consultants with nine offices across Scotland and Northern England.

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

June 9th 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. Harvest 2018 is done, now we need to get ready for 2019! As of 2 days ago, 7/6/19, we have finished harvesting the 2018 carrot crop. It always seems to take ages to get the last field started, then before you know it its finished. Ironically the last week has had the poorest conditions for harvesting since January. It is obviously partly down to heavy rain but also I think the soil just gradually settles down and gets tight over the 13 month as the crop is in the ground. This is especially true with the silty sands, there are a lot of fine particles in this soil type, and there isn’t much organic matter. This means that there is nothing to separate the soil particles so the particles run together over time. Hence its one of the many reasons I’m trying to increase the organic matter, but it’ll be a long process I think. One of the best ways would be to have two year grass leys but I would need to make money from those fields, maybe by integrating sheep or cattle back into the rotation. This seems to be a real movement at the moment, however what this means for sheep and cattle prices remains to be seen. It’s all very well being environmentally sustainable, as long as there’s money to pay the bills as well! All of the 2019 crops are now in the ground, including 40ha of oats that were established on the 15th of May. I say established as we took the decision to broadcast the oats and work them in to get it done as quick as possible. It’s probably not worked out much cheaper than drilling; the fields were ploughed and pressed, then paddle rolled, the seed was broadcast and worked in then rolled again. However, given how soft the fields are after ploughing the straw in, that work has paid off with nice firm seedbeds and very quick emergence. In fact the first of the fields came through within 5 days of sowing. This is an approach we have used in the past when there has been a breakdown and it gave a good crop of barley so it should do ok. However I’m not sure when these oats will be ready to harvest, I’m guessing the 29th of September! In general the crops are looking well, with them all benefitting from the rain we’ve had in May. Despite the moisture I have just today (9/6/19) started irrigating the potatoes. The Maris Piper which was planted first is just at the stage for scab control and is on very light land. While there is rain forecast for the next week, it can be very localised, so it is wise to get ahead of the weather to some extent with this crucial job. The cereals are looking OK, this is a word with hidden meaning though. From the road the wheat is looking well, having now recovered from a bit of scorch at the T1 timing. However walking through it there is lack of height at the moment, possibly too much growth regulator was used? There are, however, no prizes for flat crops. There is plenty of mildew bubbling away in the wheat as well, with mildew resistance ratings meaning little or nothing on light soil, we are stuck with spending £30/ha on this disease alone. I have, over the years, tried everything to combat this disease, from different fungicides to weird and wonderful nutrition products. This year it’s probably not been helped by using higher seed rates to combat wheat bulb fly, this has led to thick crops which harbour the disease more. The best looking variety is the old stager Istabraq, it is a variety that seems to suit our soil, especially when sowing into October to try and avoid aphids and reduce BYDV risk. It always gives nice looking grain with a good bushel weight and has a good hagberg which means good sprouting resistance. It is only everything else that lets it down, none of its resistance ratings are top of the pack, this means a high fungicide spend is inevitable, but overall it still performs as well or better than much newer varieties. Maybe the many trial site visits that are happening over the next few weeks will give clarity for the future, there is one new fungicide that will maybe give us breathing room, but ultimately we need more robust varieties to reduce our reliance on chemical inputs. The best looking cereal just now is the grain rye. Even allowing for seed costs that are twice the wheat crop at about £150/ha it still costs over £100/ha less to grow than wheat. This is due to good disease resistance so it only gets 3 doses of a cheap fungicide and a lower need for nitrogen, I typically use 25% less compared to the wheat, which gives it a better carbon footprint! Using this type of growing system has given us average yields that are comparable to wheat over the last 3 years, with better performance on the lighter fields. However the biggest drawback to growing more is the lack of versatility compared to wheat, or even feed barley, maybe this problem could be solved by feeding it to all the animals that we are going to have on farms in the coming years! 50

Talking........Livestock

June 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. It’s a case of frustration mixed with thankfulness at the moment. The weather is basically broken but hopefully not for long. I do have to be thankful though as there are two clamps sealed up with good silage that should be suitable for milk production. Excess grazing ground also was cut out of the rotation at the start which is in good form for returning to the rotation. The only worry about that is it wouldn’t carry the cows at the moment, so I need it to dry up soon. All cut ground is slurried or fertilised up to date to allow a clearer run at the remainder of the silage. On the up side, spring barley needed rain and it has indeed helped it greatly as it is looking much healthier and it is sprayed up to date. As a family, we had a good day out at Balmoral Show where there was plenty of craic but having the children on the reins was a must as the crowds were big. Admittedly there was nothing really new on show, but the quality of stock was a real credit to their owners.

June 6th 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 thought winter had come early this year with frosts early in March, but the weather warmed up again and April and May and served up one of the best autumns we’ve had for years. As a result the boys have got all the autumn wheat in and up and forward sold at $450/t. Grass seed prices are up as well and despite a problem with slugs there is a large area sown down in grass. This sets us up for a better harvest. Swine fever in the Chinese pig herd and the consequential demand for alternative meats in China is driving up the price of beef and lamb here, so despite the uncertainties around Brexit and the European market, it looks like the lamb trade will be ok with prices around the $8/kg dead weight mark. The 4500 lambs have been Cows waiting for truck as winter storm approaches enjoying the autumn and have had a great start. We dried off the cows on the 30th May, the day before a winter storm dumped 80mm of rain on us and covered the upper plains and mountains with up to a metre of snow. They say timing is everything. The cows are up at their winter resort having a well earned 2 month holiday. Milk production was up 15% for the season and despite Fonterra’s best efforts of making a mess of things, the milk price will be ok. So a good year to make milk! The opening forecasts for next season are for a firm milk price so prospects across the board for next season are better than for several years. A few years ago in Adelaide I was having a discussion with an Irish Nuffield scholar who thought that because NZ did not have a capital gains tax, that was the equivalent to a subsidy to NZ farmers. It was a line of logic that I suspect only an Irishman could favour, but it did make me think about the differences in our regimes. We now have to have a resource consent with various environmental conditions to be allowed to farm. This consent is audited to ensure compliance. If we were to fail the audit we would have a few months to comply or else face substantial fines. It cost us about $15000 to prepare the information and apply for the consent. Our first audit (last week) was 8 months after gaining the consent. To prepare for the audit we had to up-date all the information needed for the consent. This has cost us another $10000. We have to input all our cropping and livestock information into a nutrient modelling system which was developed for dairy farming but is acknowledged as having no validity to cropping (and not much for dairy farming). If we pass the audit we are left alone for 2 years and then we have to go through the whole process again. As William has pointed out there is no reward for being an exemplary environmental guardian but only sanctions if you fail; and no multi-tens of thousands of pounds or euros paid into our account for putting up with this bureaucratic nonsense (and no grants available to pay for riparian fencing or planting). On top of this our government is blaming NZ farmers for global warming; the logic of which is on a par with that dodgy Irishman’s in Adelaide! The consequence of all this is, we are being told, is that farmers are losing confidence and as a result farms are not selling, banks are getting nervous and land values are starting to fall. This all seems to defy the reality of rising grain, seed, milk and meat prices. On a brighter note I can report that the boys won their inter-club rugby competition drawing with Glenmark (rural North Canterbury) in a hard fought, fast paced and entertaining final played out through extra time in front of over a thousand spectators. We scored more tries. The auditor turned up at 8.30am the next day. There was more than a hint that the boys had had a torrid bus trip home from Glenmark that had taken it’s toll on top of the 100 minutes of rugby, but the auditor seemed sympathetic. Apparently her brother-in-law was in a worse state having only been a spectator. We await the auditor’s report.
