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. 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 product range includes gang slats, cubicles, feed channels, water troughs, pre-stressed wall panels, free standing retainer walls, above 2.4m Bunker Walls ground and underground slurry tanks and lagoons constructed using their own patented design system.

livestock 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. A considerable amount Ox Strain Strainer Post 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 this year will have an extensive range of products on display on their stand. Last year they had a prototype of their new concrete Ox Strain strainer post at the show. This generated quite a bit of interest and they took on board feedback received and will have the finished product at this year’s show. They will also have their SurefootTM slip resistant slat on display. It 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.

What is a heatpump Grain drying system? A Heatpump Grain Drying System uses heat naturally occurring in the ground, the heat is increased with a 300% efficient heatpump to the required heating output whilst deriving the 20 year Government RHI tariff. A bi-product of the heatpump’s heating cycle is chilled water, this is used to dehumidify the recirculated air through the grain as well as chilling the grain to anywhere between 10c to 15c before it is stored.

How it works - drying example: Side Elevation View

The heatpump heats the air. As this is a continuous loop it requires a lot less energy than a conventional drying system.

The moisture laden air is passed through the heatpump dehumidifier system. Shed Door

“I have a long standing relationship with Calibrate and have always found them to be true to their word, delivering on time and on budget. Opting for a 20 year warranty package with Calibrate is testament to the confidence I have in them. I would highly recommend Calibrate.” Mr. Douglas Shand

The Heatpump Grain Drying solution is very flexible, it can be bolted on to an existing Grain Dryer or can be purchased as a completed solution.

Hot dry air Warm wet air - high humidity Cooler air

The Heatpump system uses a ‘cool only’ function at the end of the cycle to ensure the grain is at any temperature you require prior to storage.

Visit us at The Highland Show on Avenue H, Stand No.143 for complimentary drinks and refreshments where you can see the Grain Drying System in action.

This system is OFGEM approved at the highest possible tariff of

9.09p per kW hr.

SUCH HAPPY NEWS

I still go soft on my tyres every time I hear of a new birth and none more so than last week. We have been waiting the arrival of the latest addition to the ‘New Bosses’ family for so long that the sudden appearance of Posy left me in a state of shock. Unfortunately I was not at home on April 25th and unable to hold Jess’s hand when she needed me most, luckily Hugo was there at the critical time and did everything I would have done and more. Wendy writes The good news is that I am feeling so much better with my repaired fuel injector pump. I don’t have quite the energy I used to have and find hills a real struggle, but on the plus side I am not emitting as much smoke as I used to and I am definitely more environmentally friendly than in the past! The day after I was fixed I made the long journey up to Gosford. It was when I was climbing Soutra that I struggled. Once at the top I was back to full speed, I turned left at the bottom of the hill and went through Posy on her way to the BGH Humbie, East Saultoun, Pencaitland, over the A1 at Gladsmuir and on to Longniddry. The bridge over the A1 has three roundabouts in very close succession. This really tests his muscles as no power steering makes quick turns very hard work. To pull four sheds on one site is something I have not done for many years. With my engine fixed I thought it would be a trouble free exercise but how wrong I was. The first shed went without a hitch but on the next three my dog clutch that engages the winch kept on jumping out and by the time we got to the fourth one I was really struggling. Luckily a nice man with a large pair of steelsons and a length of pipe managed to keep it engaged and the pull was completed. It was back to young Andrew for more repairs, his diagnosis was lack of maintenance and a nice bit of oil and grease soon sorted the problem. How many times do I have to tell him that driving is the easy bit, looking after me is much more important. I went back to Gosford three days later, and happily everything worked fine. Andy’s repairs were first class and I feel I have now turned the corner. I wonder whether Posy needs a fairy Godmother, if she does I do so hope they would consider me for that very important role.

Voluntary registration of land can be a bit of a jigsaw Landmaps provide mapping and measuring to help piece it all together. Voluntary registration of title deeds is currently attracting a 25% discount on Registers of Scotland fees, new trigger points for registration have been introduced covering transfer of security and long leases. Plan ahead to ensure these important matters are in place if considering any business changes.

IACS maps are still required to be accurate, despite Brexit. If you need accurate measurements call for further information. For further information please call on 01573 225 028 • 07789 220 469 or email info@landmaps.co.uk

General Data Protection Regulations By now you will all have heard the acronym GDPR. But what exactly is it? On 26th May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will replace the Data Protection Act. It is designed to safeguard the personal information of individuals living in EU member states, with particular emphasis on transparency and accountability. It applies to ALL business based in the EU and non-compliance could lead to substantial fines. of size or structure.

– This is a MYTH, it applies to all businesses irrespective

– Again, this is a MYTH. The Government have confirmed that Brexit will not delay the commencement of GDPR and post-Brexit they will ensure that our legislation mirrors the new GDPR legislation. Some of the principles and concepts of GDPR mirror the current Data Protection Act but there are some additional provisions and changes that you need to be aware of. One of the major changes that businesses will encounter is that you need to obtain consent if you intend to use data for marketing purposes. Consent under GDPR relies on a positive and transparent opt-in approach. Therefore any existing consent mechanisms you currently have in place may need to be updated. Pre-ticked boxes for newsletters and emails are a perfect example of a procedure which will need to change. So if you want to be able to communicate with your

customers and clients after 26th May 2018 you must ensure that you have obtained their consent and this is held on record.

A summary of the requirements, together with a summary of the additional rights for individuals, can be found in our fact sheet which can be downloaded at https://www.jhgreenwood.co.uk/datasecurity-2 . Step by step guidance can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) at www.ico.org.uk

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......... Business with Edwin Thompson

May 2018 Ben Burbridge is a rural practice surveyor with Edwin Thompson LLP based in the Galashiels office. He provides professional advice to clients throughout southern Scotland on a range of rural issues. Various provisions of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016 have been introduced and enacted however there is still a significant amount of work on secondary legislation in order to implement the provisions of the some of the legislations. As a quick summary to date, the main issues affecting the agricultural sector have been the establishment of the land commission and appointment of the Tenant Farming Commissioner, together with the implementation of an expanded range of eligible assignees and successors to traditional 1991 Act tenancies. Modern Limited Duration Tenancies have been replaced Limited Duration Tenancies, as of the 30 November 2018, it remains to be seen if these will see more land being released to the tenanted sector. The introduction of Non Domestic Rates on deer stalking and shooting has seen many properties been assigned a ratable value, even when no activity takes place. The government has now introduced non statutory guidance to local authorities to allow rates relief where no sporting rights are being exercised for commercial returns. The non-statutory guidance states that Unoccupied Property Relief can be awarded at 100% to shooting rights where no commercial shooting or stalking takes place. For those properties where commercial activities are undertaken, the Small Business Bonus Scheme still offers 100% rates relief on properties with an aggregate rateable value up to £15,000, with 25% relief available for properties with a rateable value from £15,001 to £18,000. The tenant’s amnesty on agricultural tenant’s improvements is almost a year old, it came into effect on 13th June 2017 for a period of three years only, and applies to 1991 Act tenancies, LDTs and SLDTs. Discussions between landlords and tenants have started in a meaningful manner, whilst it is not just important to understand who did what from a record keeping perspective for any potential claims at waygo, the formalizing of what constitutes an improvement is also important at rent review, as these are disregarded when reviewing a holdings rent. Going forward, under the new fair rent review provisions, which look replacing the open market review mechanism with a fair rent method which looks at the productive capacity of the farm under the fixed equipment provided by the landlord, this reinforces the need for accurate records when this legislation finally comes into effect. Other changes to the legislation remain in the pipeline with the introduction of assignation and relinquishment of traditional 1991 act tenancies. This will see a secure tenant being able to offer to relinquish the tenancy in return for compensation from the landlord. A valuation is carried out by a valuer instructed by the Tenant Farming Commissioner. Again the issue of tenant’s improvement’s/ fixtures comes into play here as they need to be taken into account when arriving at a compensation figure if the landlord does elect to buy the tenant out. If the landlord does not accept the offer, the tenant can then assign the tenancy on the open market to a new entrant or an individual wishing to progress in farming. At this stage, it is not known whether the same definition of “new entrant” will be used for relinquishment and assignation as it was for the Modern Limited Duration Tenancy, it would make sense if there was a degree of consistency here. 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. The amnesty, also, serves as a general reminder of the importance of following the correct procedures and seeking specialist advice to assist in successfully navigating a potential minefield of legislation. For further information or advise on any of the above please contact Ben Burbridge (Galashiels office) on 01896 751300

Talking........New Zealand

May 7th 2018 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 know it’s boring hearing about how bad the bloody weather is, but as farmers it can be important. April, like March has been wet, very wet! All our land is part of the old Longbeach swamp that was drained in the 1860’s. A series of open drains were dug from the sea back up into the swamp and then tile drains laid to feed the open drains. In the late 1970’s we had a number of wetter years and we laid several kilometres of new tile drains to add to the original drainage to allow us to farm effectively. This drainage served us well. The drained land is predominantly silt on deep clays and is highly productive, especially when not too wet. The last few dry years have allowed many of the tile drains to go dry and too many of the open drains to be neglected. The maintenance of the open drains is the responsibility of the regional council; although Flooding drains we pay for this by way of land taxes. The regional council is also tasked with environmental stewardship and has given that a greater priority over the last few years than maintaining the drainage capacity of the system. Point of Lay Pullets for Sale With the support of the hairy androgynous anti farming lot they have been encouraging riparian planting, narrowing the bed 12 colourful varieties of Hybrid Hens width of the drains, and creating habitat, which combined with a reluctance to mechanically dredge the drains, and an even greater in stock all year round. reluctance to spray weeds, has resulted in a significant reduction Ideal for garden chicken keeping or in the ability of the drainage network’s capacity. larger productive flocks. The net result of all this is that we’ve had a lot of flooding and that is doing some considerable damage to farm infrastructure Brown, White & Blue egg layers available and making farming pretty difficult. It is also encouraging William to consider the importance of E: info@edinburghchickens.com drains; clearing the outlets, cleaning the side cut drains and the capacity of the main drains.

On Our Farm

May 9th 2018 Hugo Lee farms in partnership with his father, Guy, at Sandystones, near St Boswells. Arable crops of wheat, oilseed rape, malting barley and rye are grown, 400 Angus cattle are finished annually, 4000 organic hens produce eggs for Waitrose, 14,000 organic point of lay pullets reared each year and 60,000 pheasant poults are raised. It has taken its time but Spring is finally here the sun is shining the grass is growing and everywhere has dried up nicely. What a difference a month makes! All the Laureate spring barely was drilled in the last week of April. It turned out to be a pretty crazy few days. On one day we had six tractors working and we were not even drilling potatoes! The Rexus twin was pressing ground ahead of the drill. Our tractor was rolling, lime was being spread and, as an experiment, we were top dressing well-rotted cattle muck onto winter wheat ground at 25t/ha. The muck was spread with discs spreaders using our 24m tramlines. I have to say despite our contractor reassuring me that Pressing and drilling Spring barley it would be fine I was slightly nervous about the whole thing. However, they have done a fantastic job with a very even spread and barely any crop damage. By lunchtime on Wednesday 25th of April, as the drill pulled out of the last field the rain which had been forecast all week finally arrived. I went home for lunch feeling pretty relieved that finally we were all drilled up. As I walked into the kitchen Jess told me that she had just started to Spreading lime Top dressing wheat have some contractions but it was at the early stages and nothing was with FYM really happening. I had just began to make a sandwich when everything changed. Jess came downstairs in some considerable pain and said that we needed to go to hospital “now”. However circumstances changed very quickly and Posy Mary Annabel Lee was born at Sawmill Cottage, Sandystones, delivered by a completely unqualified and rather shocked midwife, Hugo Lee. I am happy to report that despite waiting half an hour for an ambulance to come both Jess and Posy are doing very well. Posy’s father on the other hand is struggling to get over the shock of the whole thing and is certainly not thinking of a career change anytime soon! Winter crops seem to be all over the place at the moment with very varied Posy Lee 25/04/18 growth stages even within the same field. The sprayer has been pretty busy recently applying T1’s on winter wheat and winter barley and a pre-emergence herbicide on the spring barley. All crops except the winter wheats and winter barleys have had their final dose of nitrogen. I just hope that this warm weather stays for a while. With grass growing at last we Cattle at grass, no better sight have turned out 80 AAX steers to Mertoun Park – a great sight. We have just taken out a field of willows which were planted in 1994 for a biomass plant at Charlesfield (which was never built). The willows were harvested for the final time almost two years ago. The remaining stumps were then mulched by Gary Renwick and a cover crop was subsequently established. The field was sprayed off a couple of weeks ago and the remnants of the cover crop were topped off. We then made the big mistake, in hindsight, of ploughing the field which brought up an incredible number of roots. Luckily Gary has just bought a new forestry tiller which works up to 12 inches deep and smashes the roots up. It has done a good job and hopefully the grass will be drilled by the end of the week and we Forestry tiller at work Topping and clearing willow field may even get a cut of silage off it before the winter……!

Barry Meeke farms 190 acres (150 owned) in partnership with brother Philip, near Dromara, County Down, Northern Ireland. They manage a mixed farm including pedigree British Friesian cows, breeding replacements, finished cattle and continental crosses being either sold as replacement suckler heifers or as finished stock. As we are now into May it doesn’t really feel like it as there is still lots to do. A lot of work has been done but we are continuing to be interrupted by rain. We have some barley nicely up through while there is some still in the bag. This week coming in was supposed to be more settled but it seems it is going to be just wet enough. We will just have to ignore the calendar and continue the normal chopping and changing to get caught up at some stage and try to bring everything along together. The up side of the rain is that it is taking the worry out of the fact that the slurry was applied very late, this will help to wash the swards. The last of the slurry was applied using the umbilical system which showed positive improvements by reducing ground damage. So now that the system is here it will hopefully reduce any delays another year. Also fertilizer had to be used for most first grazings and the dribble bar will be used after each block of ground is grazed to apply about 1800 gallon per acre. Grazing didn’t get off to a great start as some ground damage has been done, mainly due to the fact that it hasn’t recovered properly from last year’s damage. We are rolling after first grazing to reduce the foot holes which are inevitably holding water. Having said that it is helping to maintain milk yield which is very important as there are no more cows to calve so the longer we can stall the decline in yield the better. Protein dropped a little at turnout which is a sign of lower energy, so we upped the wheat in the ration which brought it back up to 3.36%. This will help to bring the last cows on heat as well, hopefully. Those cows aren’t pleasing me as a couple have turned out dirty and one very cystic, this is annoying as we have had a good run up to now, so hopefully after veterinary intervention and a mineral dose they will go in calf ok and tighten or at least maintain the end of calving where it was this year. The recent TB test was clear, although there were a few avian TB lumps around. This didn’t surprise me as the starlings this year were too plentiful. I needn’t say it was particularly their fault but I don’t feel guilty blaming them as they are a dirty expensive pest. As the silo roof is complete and the doors should be on by winter I hope to be starting free indoors next winter. Milk price remains decent which helps offset increased meal prices and the frustrating weather. We hope to take a good long day at Balmoral show to whet the appetite for future retail therapy (whenever it will be second hand)! 44

Alnwick Properties Important reminder

Attention all landlords and property managers in England

From April 2018 all domestic and commercial property that is being let out needs to meet the Governments minumium energy standards of an energy rating of E or better. This does not apply in Scotland yet. This applies to listed buildings and property in conservation areas. If the domestic or commercial property has an energy rating of F – G or H or worse, then you cannot let out the property. This has major implications for landlords, letting agents and estate managers, because finance companies, bank and building societies will not allow the property to be used as security if it cannot be let out due to is poor energy rating. Plus, private landlords will end up with unlettable properties. Alnwick Properties can complete a draft EPC calculation for your properties, give advice so you can look at what needs done to get your properties up to E ratings or even better and then produce your legal EPC document that will last 10 years. Alnwick Properties are commercial and domestic energy assessors for Energy Performance Certificates (EPC’s) for property in England and Scotland.

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. Generally, most farmers are busy most of the year, but it’s not until you come out the other side of a really busy period that you realise what busy is! So, lambing is just about finished, albeit with 30 odd still hanging on. We lamb the bulk of the ewes over 2-3 weeks and we have been very fortunate that the weather has turned significantly kinder these last few. Calving continues and at the time of writing has been relatively trouble free. 65% calved in the first 3 weeks. The calving cameras have been a real help, especially the ability to watch without disturbing and only step in when it’s really necessary. The bullocks and heifers are busy getting a cobalt, selenium, iodine and copper bolus as they are turned out. The heifers that look suitable for bulling will be pelvic measured and weighed. Weight needs to be over 370kg at bulling and the pelvis needs to measure 140cm2 at this time. Those suitable will then commence their vaccination programme against BVD, Leptospirosis, lungworm and clostridial diseases. We have now completed our first flock of hens. The catching team arrived at midnight on Monday and were finished by 6am. They were efficient, and given the nature of the job, calm and professional. We now have the joy of trying to catch the flighty ones that wouldn’t be caught. The muck out now commences with a full clean down and disinfectant ready for the next hens who will arrive at the beginning of June. Both Claire and I completed the DEFRA consultation “Health and Harmony: the future for food, farming and the environment in a Green Brexit.” It took a considerably longer period of time than either of us had at this time of year and to be honest during the process there was very little health and harmony in our household! There are very few, if any questions that relate to food and one of the biggest factors on all our businesses, international trade, is left until the penultimate question when most of us that have filled the form in have lost the will to live. I feel that we may have to start farming with our hands tied behind our back whilst jumping through the high standards hoop as cheap, lower standard food gets imported from the rest of the world. An out of sight, out of mind policy I fear! The consultation is now closed, however we still intend to write to our MP to lobby the points that are important to us. Bainbridge Farms celebrates its 50th year of trading this year. With Mum and Dad setting up in 1968 with 2 milking cows, 12 sheep, £200 in the bank and 90 rented acres. We have made significant progress and now have grown all the numbers and employ 3 full time staff, an apprentice and 3 part time staff. The question I now ask, is with the future of UK agriculture in the hands of the government and the future trade arrangements and policy that they conjure up, will we be able to make the same progress over the next 50 years? 46

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. What a difference a few weeks makes. Having gone from horrifically wet, to the hottest day on record in April, back to wet again we are now basking in some glorious sunshine. Spring drilling was something of an anti-climax, all 149.8ha was drilled in a little over three days with minimal fuss, and the barley was poking through within 7 days. The beans took a little more thought as there was an issue I have not encountered before. The beans were simply too big to fit into the slot left by my 15mm wide knife coulter, unless you dropped them individually the right way up by hand which was not really an option when the seedrate was 375kg/ha. The fairly crude solution was to deepen the coulter and go quicker to encourage a wider slot so that the majority had a good 50mm covering of soil. I don’t think they have come to any harm as they seem to be flying through the ground now. Despite the catchy weather I am fairly well on top of the spraying and fertilising programme which has allowed Vertigo beans emerging from a drilling me to take all three days away from work over the bank depth of 75mm after only 14 days holiday. This is completely unheard of for me before, but I am now going to try and make it a habit. A friend and I took our respective sons to watch a county cricket game at Trent Bridge in bright sunshine and what a fantastic day out. The boys spent all afternoon harassing the boundary fielders for autographs whilst Nick and I treated ourselves to some cold lagers celebrating a successful drilling campaign and a parenting job well done. With harvest rapidly approaching, my thoughts are turning to next year’s rotation and how to A stunning day at Trent Bridge try avoid the pitfalls of too much winter cropping. The most profitable crops in the short term here are wheat and oilseed rape and the temptation is to maximise the areas of both. However, I am very aware that I am one managerial blunder away from a blackgrass disaster so the decision to be made is between a 5 year rotation of Winter Wheat/ Winter OSR/Winter Wheat/Spr Barley/Spr Beans or a 6 year rotation of Winter Wheat/Winter OSR/Winter Wheat/Spr Oats/ Winter Wheat/Spr Beans. The calculator suggests that there is not too much between them financially so the decision may come down to my passionate dislike of combining barley.

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. As Roger Daltrey from The Who would sing “Let’s see action”, and in the past few weeks we certainly have. It’s been a busy few weeks but progress is being made; the spring grain has been drilled and is now emerging, the energy beet and carrots have been sown and we have made a start to potatoes. I know that I frequently moan about about how light and dry our soils are but it is in years like this that they come into their own. It seems to only take a few nice days and they become dry enough to work. The carrots have gone into seedbeds that were drying nicely after being tilled while not being so dry that they were starting to blow. Overly dry seedbeds create big problems for the carrot drill. It works by using vacuum to suck seed onto a rotating plate and flying sand and silt particles cause wear to the plates and poor seed placement. Needless to say seed spacing is crucial to getting an even crop so anything that hinders this is a problem. It was much easier when the carrot seed was pelleted and we just used modified “neep” seeders but “natural” seed as it is called is significantly cheaper and therefore worth the effort. As I said we have made a good start to potatoes, as of today (6/5/18) we have been going a week and have made good progress. The start of the planting campaign is always a bit fraught as electric motors that are only used for a month a year have to be coaxed back to life. It never fails that despite servicing all of the kit well in advance, within a day of getting to the field a crucial part packs in. Thankfully all of of our suppliers have very good engineers and they carry parts that are commonly required so we are never long in getting going again. Some of these engineers are the real heroes when it comes to getting crops in on time. I’m sure they must get sick of people calling at all times of day and night, often with daft questions that could be solved by reading the manual, sorry about that Jim! However Murphy’s law struck today, I’d just finished telling someone that we had been getting on well, when a destoner operator called to let me know a web had broken!

DEMAND FOR RENTED LAND

Commenting on the current level of interest for rented farms and land in Cumbria: Craig Brough, Associate Director and Chartered Surveyor with H&H Land and Property said: “From watching the agricultural rental market within Cumbria, it is evident that there remains a strong demand for all types of land and farms to rent with good levels of rent being achieved.” Early in the year, demand for our seasonal grass lettings was very strong and which saw an increase in the average rental figure per acre achieved. There is also considerable interest in our longer term lets for land. We have recently let on a five-year Farm Business Tenancy a 135 acres block of quality mowing and grazing land near Carlisle. This block of land attracted a lot of local interest, which resulted in use securing a good rent for our client. We are currently marketing a 73-acre stock farm with a

recently renovated three-bedroom farmhouse, also to be let on a five-year Farm Business Tenancy. This has attracted a very strong level of interest, which is not unusual as there is such a scarcity of such farms being advertised to let in Cumbria. We have received interest from a range of potential tenants from a wide geographical area, however what is really significant is the level of interest from young farmers wanting to start up their first tenancy. With so many more applicants than there are farms or land to let, it is so important for those applying to rent a farm to ensure that they make their business plan stand out from amongst the crowded field. As an applicant to even make it as far as the interview stage, you must spend time, take advice and present a well prepared business plan that is sustainable and realistic. We are currently in discussions with a number of landowners considering the possibility of letting and we would expect there to be further properties to come to the market this year.
