Scottish Distributor for Moore Concrete

M J Harrison Supplies Ltd is a family run business established in 1981, that supplies quality precast concrete products to the Agricultural, Construction and Industrial sectors, including Recycling and Biomass. The company has been sole Scottish distributor for Moore Concrete Products which is based in Ballymena, Northern Ireland for many years. During this time the business has expanded by the company ethos of providing quality, competitively priced products backed by individual customer service and support. The range of products available has increased to meet the customers demand and needs and the availability of bespoke products has also grown. A close working relationship with Moore Concrete has also been an important contributing factor to this growth. The aim of M J Harrison Supplies is to have satisfied customers who come back time after time. Here’s what some of their customers said in a recent independent survey: ‘Service and back-up excellent’, ‘The company does a great job’, ‘Really pleased with the service’, ‘No other similar products at the same quality and value’, ‘Best value for money’, ‘Good family business’, ‘Best quality available’, ‘Quick response to enquiries’. All the company’s dedicated sales team have practical experience and knowledge of the products and are therefore able to provide technical and practical assistance with regard to application of products. M J Harrison Supplies are able to supply and deliver their extensive range of concrete products to anywhere in Scotland. The 2.4m Bunker Walls product range includes gang slats, cubicles, feed channels, water troughs, pre-stressed wall panels, free standing retainer walls, above ground and underground slurry tanks and lagoons constructed using their own patented design system. With the range of products now available, an entire livestock shed interior can be constructed using precast/pre-stressed concrete products. The net result is a quick, cost effective and very serviceable accommodation for livestock 2

whether it is for dairy cows, beef or sheep. A number of their products have been customer led, including the very successful Bunker Wall, designed to store any bulk material including grain, oilseed rape, feed, silage, etc. Gang Slats A considerable amount of work went into the design of this product resulting in a very practical and workable product. Features include two forklift recesses so it is very easily and safely moved or repositioned (a one man job) as and when required; double load bearing as standard; can safely be loaded on one side with grain, or similarly dense material with nothing on the other and should not move and no need to fix down (up to 3m high). They have exhibited at the Royal Highland Show for a number of years and endeavour to have some new products on their stand each year, along with an extensive range of existing products. This year the new products they will have on display includes a concrete strainer post, Quikbloc for retaining bulk materials, large precast slurry channel, 1500kg tractor weight and also their new design of gang slat including with the SurefootTM finish. This slip resistant slat was designed to improve animal welfare and productivity and the results of recent independent research has demonstrated this to be the case, thus adding a financial benefit.

A Heatpump system manages a revolutionary Grain Drying process. The heatpump is located in a customised plant room that is manufactured in our workshop and delivered to site ready to use. A bespoke controller can operate the grain dryer via a cloud based system enabling Calibrate to monitor all aspects of the process and tariff generation meters online.

This Heatpump can heat more than one application at a time, for example:

Grain Dryer

Farm House

Cottage

A revolutionary, patent pending Grain Drying system will save Hulam Farm £36,000* per year. “I have dealt with Calibrate for a number of years now and this is the second big project I have undertaken; paybacks from the initial project have been 4 years rather than the forecasted 6.5 years. I like these guys, they are very clever, get the job done – could highly recommend them for large scale projects.” Michael Allan Hulam Farm

The Heatpump Grain Drying solution is very flexible, it can be bolted on to an existing Grain Dryer or can be purchased as a complete solution and it uses a ‘cool only’ function at the end of the cycle to ensure the grain is at any temperature you require prior to storage.

This system is OFGEM approved at the highest possible tariff of

9.09p per kW hr.

BRYCE HEADS FOR THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE. Bryce Post Drivers who manufacture world class award-winning post drivers from their base near Kelso recently tied the knot with one of New Zealand's top-rated agricultural dealerships, Piako Tractors, who consistently win awards for sales and support of tractors and machinery. They have invested heavily in recent years and offer a 24/7 service. Piako Tractors work with some of the top brands such as Agco, Krone, Aitchison and Pottinger and Bryce was seen as the perfect fit for the fencing arm of their business. Owner manager of the Piako Group, Darrell Russell, runs the Company out of Morrinsville in the North Island with other branches at Rotorua and Paeroa. The South Island will be taken care of by established contacts who already have a broad experience of the fencing industry. Andrew and Stuart Bryce met the Piako guys a few years back at the National Grassland Event where Darrell Russell and his colleagues were Andrew & Jock Bryce with Darrell Russell & colleagues favourably impressed with what they saw. With Bryce already having machines operating in New Zealand, good reports of these machines were being received in fencing circles. It was left that if ever the opportunity arose, then Piako would be more than keen to talk further, so on a recent European trip to meet up with some of their European equipment suppliers Darrell and his team paid a visit to Bryce of Kelso to see their set-up and machines being demonstrated. Jock Bryce reckons that when Kiwis are asked for their thoughts, they are generally short, sharp and to the point. It therefore came as no surprise when Darrell Russell was asked for his opinion as to why they signed up to be the New Zealand distributor for Bryce. He said “it’s very simple - outstanding features and superior quality”.

Talking........New Zealand

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.

Winter has begun. We know that because last weekend was the start of the duck hunting season. This is quite a big day in rural NZ, to the extent that club rugby games are played mid-week so the boys can take to their mai-mais.

It even features on the national news where the urban do-gooders earnestly instruct those of us with a bucolic bent not to drink and then shoot each other. I’m not sure what gives townies the moral superiority to feel as if they have the right to patronise us by telling us constantly how to farm and how to behave, but we must have taken some notice as we got 50% right.

2000 lambs going to better tucker

We’ve had the same team coming to us now for a while. The oldest serving member reckons it is now nearly 40 years. Things have changed a bit over that time. Our eye sight is not as sharp. We are all happy to share the credit for hitting something knowing that it was probably one of the others that shot it. We try not to shoot teal, shovellers or paradise duck; but only mallards. By the time we have identified the species, the ducks have a pretty good chance of flying past untouched. We tell ourselves that tallies don’t matter and in fact consider it a good day if the dogs, out of boredom, don’t wander over to the neighbours pond to help them retrieve.

We do take sorting out the problems of the world pretty seriously. The noise this can create does seem to put the ducks off from flying too close, and we are constantly amazed that on the Monday after, the world’s problems haven’t disappeared. We thought we needed some advice on one particular issue so we took the jet boat down to our neighbours at Longbeach to hear their opinion. They were shooting on a raft in the middle of a 10ha irrigation pond which was a novel but unstable mai-mai. Their tally seemed to consist of a teal, a shoveller and a paradise duck. They had fine whisky and very fine cigars but their advice drifted away with the rest of the day. No matter, we can sort it next year.

“ITS MY FEET, THEY ARE KILLING ME” Wendy writes

He has put two of the tyres that Shaun collected from Andy McQuaker on my back wheels. The grip was fantastic and for 70 miles I felt invigorated and then, on the way back from Lochtower, the tread started coming off. I have heard of the ‘big boys’ throwing treads on motorways but should it happen to me travelling at 30mph. Not only has the tread disintegrated but it has damaged by mudflap, he really will have to try and spend a bit more on me. Talking about Lochtower, poor James woke up to this scene of devastation last week. Three men used a van to tow away The tread came off after 70 My shoe rack: worn miles out on the bottom shelf, his egg shed and honesty box containing replacements on top about £20. The police are still checking CCTV The remains of the Lochtower egg shed footage. He went to see a friend last week who couldn’t wait to show him his latest acquisition. Will Balfour of Newton www.scotpen.co.uk Don has just taken delivery of a 1943 Scammell Pioneer Recovery Truck. This beast has got everything I used to have; a crane, a winch, immaculate tyres and very tidy paintwork. Although we weigh in the same at 14 tonnes, he can only pull his own weight whereas I can manage 40 tonnes. He has no spades, just things to go under the wheels. Do I feel threatened? No. Jealous? Yes. I wish I Sheep are gently immobilised and safely retained. could look as smart and as cared for as him.

Concrete the way you want it!

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

Talking......... From the South

Hugo Lee is farm manager at Whitsbury Farm and Stud near Fordingbridge in Hampshire. The soils are predominantly chalk downland with some clay cap. Cropping covers 1500 acres and includes wheat, barley, oilseed rape, peas and poppies. 60 cattle are finished annually and 250 ewe lambs are sold every September. The farm is also home to the famous Whitsbury Manor Stud and Whitsbury racing stables.

We have had dry springs here before but the combination of a very dry winter followed by a very dry spring and no rain forecast for whole of May is really concerning. The water level of a local neighbour’s well which he has been measuring continuously for over forty years is 6ft below its normal level. The last time it was this low was 1976 and we all know what happened that year! Not only has it been dry but it has also been very cold with some extremely hard frosts last week which really hit the already drought stressed crops hard. The worst affected crop at present is the Crusoe winter wheat which has been tipped badly by the plant growth regulator applied at T1. The spring barley, which established well, is now looking hungry because it has received next to no rain since fertiliser was applied. The peas and linseed are all up and growing but very, very slowly. I just hope they are putting some big roots down and that they will start to kick on a bit when it warms up. The oilseed rape is the only crop that seems to be loving this prolonged dry spell. It has been flowering for ages and set an enormous number of pods however it is crucial that they all fill properly. Unfortunately in my experience a good looking rape crop always flatters to deceive.The crops are not the only things that are suffering from the drought. Our grass gallops are being absolutely destroyed by badgers. Every night they dig up huge areas in search of leatherjackets. This has never happened before and we can only assume that the combination of an ever increasing badger population combined with the prolonged dry spell and lack of worms is causing them to search for food elsewhere. On a brighter note the stud has finished another very successful foaling season and one of our stallions, Swiss Spirit, is currently leading first season sire. The cattle have finally been turned out and I am really pleased with how they are looking for this time of year. We have just sheared the sheep and I will start spraying T2’s on Badger damage to gallops the wheat at the end of the week. Wilf keeping an eye on the shearing

22

I hope by next month we all will have had a decent drop of rain. I am sure as soon as we think about making silage, haylage or hay it will start raining!

JUNE 2017


Completing the map of land ownership All land and property in Scotland is due to move to the digital, map-based Land Register of Scotland by 2024. For rural landowners, the change presents the opportunity to protect their ownership and clarify exact boundaries. Registers of Scotland’s Scott Bond explains. If you own land or property in Scotland, your ownership is recorded on one of two public registers: the modern Land Register of Scotland, or the 400 yearold General Register of Sasines. The newer register is replacing the older register by 2024, meaning that all property titles still on the sasine register will move to the land register. Unlike the sasine register, which relies on the verbal descriptions of property boundaries contained in deeds, the land register records exact boundaries on a digital map. A complete land register will reduce the cost of buying and selling property. It will also make land ownership more transparent, allowing anyone to find out who owns what through an online search. Registers of Scotland is the non-ministerial government department responsible for recording land and property ownership. To help complete the land register, we’re encouraging owners of landholdings such as farms to apply to voluntarily move their property titles to the land register. A title on the land register makes future property transactions easier, faster and cheaper. It includes a state-backed warranty of title, giving protection against claims of adverse possession. Moving to the land register allows landowners to clarify their exact boundaries, ironing out any uncertainties between neighbouring properties. A land registered title also helps with refinancing, and makes succession planning much more straightforward.

JUNE 2017

In addition to voluntary registration, property titles are being moved to the land register when properties are sold, and when owners remortgage with a new lender. Registers of Scotland is also using a new power called keeper-induced registration to register certain types of property titles without an application from the owner, but this is only being used in urban, residential areas and not for agricultural or rural land. For agricultural landholdings, we believe voluntary registration is the best option as it lets landowners use their expert knowledge of their property to register exactly what they own. We have a team of dedicated advisors at Registers of Scotland, who are on hand to guide landowners through the process. To help landowners move to the land register, we’re also offering a 25 per cent discount on voluntary registration fees until at least mid-2019. If you’re interested in voluntary registration, we’d be very happy to hear from you and to talk through what the next steps are for you.

Talking......... Livestock

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. The busy time has passed by quite quickly, as every day the ground was getting drier and drainage, cultivating and sowing went uninterrupted by rain which is nearly unheard of in this country. The strange thing is that it is still dry which is drying ground out to a level unseen for a long time. This must be encouraging root development in winter crop and silage covers as they are doing well but spring sown crops and grazed off ground are suffering in the strong winds and sunshine. It is therefore a terrible thing to say, but, ”A shower or two of rain would do good”. The cows and all one year old plus stock are now outside day and night which has decreased the workload and seems good for maintaining peak yield in the cows, which has been short lived this past few years. The best looking batch of stock is the maiden/incalf heifers which have responded well to a higher protein diet to boost growth. The last remaining young bull has been turned out to join the heifers to sweep them and develop him in preparation for use or sale at Christmas. As pictured another bull has been sold to a previous customer, which is encouraging and it is nice to be able to supply the demand but it also reminds me of the importance of looking for outcross sires to use on the cows, which can be challenging. In fact, Genus AI company was here last week to photograph a promising daughter of an outcross bull used as a test sire at the time. As per usual I wasn’t backward at finding out plenty of information while he was here. Although I realise our herd has a lot of room for improvement, I was pleased that there was at least some interest shown in a couple of cow families, mainly the Polly family. At the start of the week we shall rake some silage, wash some slats, service some machinery and then go to Balmoral show and chill out before thinking about cutting our own silage. On second thoughts Balmoral might be more stressful than I think as Emileen will be in the ankle beater [aka the pushchair]and I am not a great pushchair pilot!

On Our Farm

May 10th 2017

Guy Lee farms in partnership with his wife, Philippa, at Sandystones, near St Boswells. Arable crops of wheat, oilseed rape, malting barley, rye and organic oats are grown, 400 cattle are finished annually, 4000 organic hens produce eggs for Waitrose, 14,000 organic point of lay pullets reared each year and 60,000 pheasant poults are raised. In addition we produce Agrimart, which is read by 8,000 farmers and agriculturally related businesses.

I usually try and resist the temptation to begin these articles with a comment about the weather as most agricultural commentators do. It is unusual to find a farmer that is ever happy with the conditions. Like the excuses of a fisherman it is too wet or too dry, too hot or too cold but rarely is it perfect. This month I will have to break my own rule as the lack of rain in the past six weeks is beginning to show some serious effects on our crops. Spring barley which has been in the ground for over a month does not look very happy. Looking into a hill always makes a crop look worse. First thing in the morning it can give a green hue with full drills but by mid afternoon the green disappears and the vista is a very patchy brown with occasional splashes of green. Rain was forecast for this Friday it is now just thick cloud. At least the temperature has The high erucic acid rape, Eraton, sprayed improved the cold wind from the North has changed to easterly and it is markedly warmer. with Pictor at full flower We have now had two hatches of pheasant chicks. Last week we had the best result we have ever had with 5200 chicks from 6460 eggs (82%). This week was nearer normal at 76%. For the past two years all the eggs have been purchased from a game farm in France. They are delivered every Tuesday, set in the trays on Wednesday and loaded into the incubator on Friday. Three weeks later they are transferred from the incubator to the hatcher. The chicks are taken off on Tuesday afternoons, all the equipment is washed and disinfected and the cycle starts again. The young chicks are taken to the rearing field, seven weeks later we are on the road delivering to customers as far afield from North Wales to Seil Island. The hawk kites are doing a great Egg production from our hens has been excellent especially from the younger birds. job keeping the buzzards away. The dry weather has really benefitted them given the choice they will drink from the dirtiest puddle they can find but with no water outside they have to drink from the nipple in the shed. We treat this water six days a week with acid which lowers the pH and keeps the gut much healthier. Congratulations must go to our young neighbour Scott Hamilton, whose mother Sandra farms at Palace Hill. He stood as a councillor in the Jedburgh and St Boswells ward in the recent election and was elected at the first stage. At 21 years old he is one of the youngest in the country to be elected, he has been a passionate Conservative all his life Titus the tortoise is still safe and and through determination and hard well! Lily our ten year old terrier, exhausted having had six puppies, work he has seen just reward for his finds him a useful head rest! efforts and conviction.

How to improve yield and quality of Oats? Bioscence Independent trials at loddington over 4 years helped to provide very valuable data, Oats showed an average yield increase of 12%. The Bioscence approach helped increase natural soil biology and improved plant root mass. Every 1cm deeper your roots go, you access 130 tons of soil across 1/ha, therefore improving plant feeding, leading to better yield, milling quality, plant health and stress reduction. We achieved these results and still managed to reduce nitrogen by 10%. On farm trials over many years have also shown yield increases of 10-20%. Consistent improvements in bushel weights were noted, helping to meet market demands and improve yield. Franklin Soil Fertility liquid bio stimulant can easily be applied with other crop treatments, is tank mixable, safe and simple to use.

• Improved root mass • Better plant feeding • Improved biology • 12% increase yield • Improved milling quality • 10% less nitrogen • £57/ha improved margin (based on £112/ton selling price)

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. Perthshire, twinned with the Gobi desert! As the dry spell continues we have turned to irrigating carrots to encourage germination and help prevent wind blow, and I’m thinking of giving some wheat a drink as an experiment. Madness maybe but worth a try to measure response which will then guide decisions in future dry times. The good weather has at least meant that potato planting hasn’t had a break with us now (7/5/17) in the last field. It is always drawn out at the end as this is when we plant Charlotte and Maris Peer for set skin salad production. Irrigation of carrots They get planted at a very close spacing so as a consequence the planter has to crawl along. That and the use of 28mm pitch webs in the stone separators means slow progress (for those not in the know the more usual pitch for webs is anything from 38mm to 45mm). The carrot planting did not go quite as easily. The drill for planting the carrot seed works by using a vacuum, so as a consequence, high volumes of dust can cause problems. This led to two afternoons where we had to stop due the high wind speeds lifting sand and silt which then gets sucked into the drill, causing wear and Tucked in a nice warm potentially poor seed spacing. I am hopeful that all bar a small area has survived the winds. The warm and bed now moist soil is certainly encouraging fast germination so hopefully any decision on redrilling can be made in the next fortnight. With the seed costing upwards of £500/ha it is always a tricky decision as to when to drill so as to maximise yield but reduce risk of windblow - it certainly makes a bit of pre-emptive irrigation seem cheap. On the combinable crops, all of the winter crops have had their final nitrogen application. I decided to trim rates back on the wheat due to the lack of rain. The rye and triticale are looking very well, apart from small areas of extremely sandy soil, the ears will probably be emerged in 10 days time. Last year I gave the rye a small dose of Cerone as a late growth regulator but this year it is looking like it may not be needed. It will only save a £ or two, but in dry weather it can do more harm than good. But then again flat crops don’t make anyone money, except maybe for the guy selling crop lifters!

Hugh Jones is a Consultant and Rural Surveyor with Edwin Thompsom working out of the Galashiels office. He advises on a broad range of rural and estate clients throughout the Borders and north west Scotland. Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016 – Update Whilst both local and national politicians jostle for position behind the scenes, work of bringing forward secondary regulation in order to implement the provisions of the Land Reform (Scotland) 2016 continue, but perhaps not at the speed which many hoped for. To date, the main issues affecting the agricultural sector have been the establishment of the land commission and appointment of a tenant farming commissioner together with the implementation of an expanded range of eligible assignees and successors to traditional 1991 Act tenancies. Questionnaires have been sent out in respect of the rating of deer forests and shooting rights but no rateable values announced as yet. The next stage is the introduction of the amnesty on agricultural tenant’s improvements which will operate from 13th June 2017 for a period of three years only and will apply to 1991 Act tenancies, LDTs and SLDTs. Qualifying improvements will be those completed by 13th June 2017 and included within, principally, parts one and two of Schedule 5 of the 1991 Act – although older improvements may also qualify. The improvements amnesty aims to provide tenants with the opportunity to obtain compensation for long term improvements which they have carried out but where the correct notice procedure was not followed and consequently they have not been eligible for compensation at termination. Whilst all types of agricultural tenancies are subject to the amnesty, not all improvements are and therefore the first step for any tenant wishing to pursue qualification is to check against the relevant schedules. Thereafter, landlord and tenant can enter into an Amnesty Agreement or more formally, the tenant can serve an Amnesty Notice on the landlord giving full details of the improvement and stating why it is fair and reasonable for compensation to be payable for it at waygo. The landlord then has the opportunity to object within two months failing which the right to compensation will be secured. If the landlord does object this may open the door to negotiation or, in case of dispute, there is provision for recourse to the Land Court. Experience suggests that this is an opportunity for landlord and tenant to formalise agreement which might have been made verbally, and to clear up any dubiety where records are incomplete. Without agreement, long term improvements may qualify as fixtures with the tenant having a right to remove, subject to notice and the landlords right to take over at valuation. In some cases that might result in a higher value than statutory compensation on the basis of value to the incoming tenant and that should be considered before pursuing a binding agreement for an item to be scheduled as an improvement under the amnesty. Other changes to the legislation remain in the pipeline with the introduction of Modern Limited Duration Tenancies, relinquishment and assignation of traditional tenancies and changes to rent review provisions to follow later in the year and into 2018.

Talking......... Organic

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. We have again met our target of 65% cows and heifers calved within the first 3 weeks. The young stock have been turned out and have now all received cobalt, selenium, iodine and copper bolus each. The bulling heifers have all been pelvic measured in order to screen out those that don’t make the grade. Those that have the right measurements and weight have started their vaccination programme. Cattle are still being fed red clover silage outside until enough grass grows and we can then set their rotation away. Lambing and calving have gone well, in part helped by the dry weather. Lambing is almost complete. The lads have now got almost everything cut, treated for ticks, scratched and EID tagged. The next building project is underway – a slighter smaller scale to last years poultry house, but just as important. New bull pens have been ordered through Penderfeed. These will be ready for next winter so we can look after them better in their individual pens. The new grass ley has been sown, with red clover and high sugar grasses under sown into barley and vetch. Young leys that were rested from the beginning of the year have plenty of grass on. Our old permanent pastures, which had also been rested, have little to no grass on. We have sown a field of forage brassica in order to finish early lambs on, just in case the silage fogs aren’t ready at the that time. These brassicas will be in addition to those sown in July which will be for finishing later lambs. The hens are nearly at full lay. With the organic inspection now complete it is a relief that the bulk of the paperwork is out of the way for the moment so we can concentrate on the eggs and trying to get the hens to lay where they are supposed to. Buyer of Steel and Non Ferrous Metals At times it feels a little bit like the painting of the Forth Road bridge - you walk round the shed picking up system and floor COLLECTION SERVICE AVAILABLE eggs, yet when you get back to the start, they’ve laid again. Competitive Prices Paid I have been reassured that if we put the time in now to try to BEST PRICES IN THE BORDERS clear the eggs as soon as possible, the hens will learn quickly where they should be laying.
