Scottish Distributor for Moore Concrete

M J Harrison Supplies Ltd is a family run business established in 1981 that supplies an extensive range of quality precast concrete products to the Agricultural, Construction and Industrial sectors, including Recycling and Biomass throughout Scotland. 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 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”, “No other similar products at the same quality and value”, “Best value for money”, “Good family business”, “Best quality available”, “Quick response to enquiries”. 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. Features include two forklift recesses so it is very easily and safely moved or repositioned (a one man job) as and when required; 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 (10’) high). M J Harrison Supplies, in conjunction with Moore Concrete have been one of the main precast suppliers who have exhibited at the Royal Highland Show for a number of years and have used it as a launch pad for many new products in that time. This year will be no exception with new products Gang Slats in new Sucker Cow Shed including their new larger diagonal slat, which accompanies their existing 1.5m (5’) wide slurry channel. Wider manhole slats and 4572mm (15’) long x 178mm (7”) deep gang slats are available with both conventional brushed and SurefootTM slip resistant finish. The longer slats will act to reduce the

number of gangs used on a specific project, which in turn reduces the number of pillars required to suspend the floor above the slurry tank and also provide additional space between a feed passage and cubicles or bedded area. Customer feedback on their SurefootTM slip resistant slat continues to be positive. Some recent quotes from customers include “The cows are more confident walking on the Surefoot slats and are behaving more naturally, with stronger and longer heats. The bull is also bulling the cows on the slats with no issues”, “The cows walk more confidently with a longer stride length on the Surefoot slats compared to the other slats and scrapped passages in the adjoining sheds”, “I am very happy with the Surefoot slats. The cows are confident walking on them, with no cows slipping and their behaviour seems very natural”. Last year they had their new concrete strainer post at the show. Due to the growing demand from both farmers and fencing contractors, the posts are now available in 2135mm (7’), 2590mm (8’6”) and 3050mm (10’) lengths depending on ground conditions and application. Regardless of ground conditions, Ox Strain Posts provide Ox Strain Concrete Strainer Post a durable, strong, maintenance free fencing solution with a 50-year design life and can be driven in using a standard post driver, in conjunction with a specifically designed cap, making installation easy.

WILL YOU STILL NEED ME, WILL YOU STILL FEED ME WHEN I’M 64?

May 2019

Four pulls in four days is pretty good for an old lady. First I pulled the shed on this farm, then to Over Langshaw, Galashiels the next day, followed by Synton Parkhead and finally to Bonnington Farm, Peebles at the end of that week. After that exhausting schedule I pulled the house here into its new position after it had been washed and disinfected. Just when I thought I could relax for a day or two we were off to Ednam, near Kelso to move the shed where the young pullets are reared.

Despite me nearing retirement age, I’ll be 64 this year, nobody, not even me, knows my exact birthday. I plan to carry on working for as long as I can. Since I had my new cable fitted I have found pulling a whole lot easier, I think there was a lot of stretch in the old one which acted more like elastic than wire and made it harder to break the initial seal and start these hen houses on the move. I have received an invitation to attend the BVAC Classic Festival of Motoring at Thirlestane castle on 2nd June. For me this is a great honour and one I cherish hugely but I am very embarrassed by the state of my bodywork. Despite repeated attempts over the past six years to book me in for a makeover absolutely nothing has happened. All this started before there was even mention of having a referendum on our membership of the EU and although the Brexit crisis drags on and on I think I can safely say that we have a greater chance of leaving Europe before I have a sandblast and respray. Now not many people can say that.

Blinkbonny Kwik Mix

Concrete the way you want it!

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

On Our Farm

May 8th 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. April 25th 2018 was dramatic to say the least with our youngest child Posy being delivered unexpectedly at home by yours truly. This year unfortunately turned out to be just as dramatic but for all the wrong reasons. As I opened the steading gates in the morning I noticed a steer lying flat out in its pen struggling to get up. All its legs moved but it just could not stand or even roll on its side, I could not understand what was wrong with it. After much head scratching it appeared that the steer had somehow got its head stuck in a gate and in struggling to free itself it had damaged its spinal cord. Having just come to terms with one disaster I received a panicked phone call from Jess, my wife, to say that Denzil our 3 year old working cocker had just jumped out of a 1st floor window and had seriously hurt himself. I could not believe it, how stupid are the Sandystones animals! Thankfully after a quick trip to the vet and a dose of heavy pain killers Denzil appears to be absolutely fine with only his pride damaged. Unfortunately the steer never recovered and had to be put down. I find losing animals one of the hardest parts of being a farmer after all the care and attention that has gone into looking after them. Fortunately it does not happen very often here but when it does it really hurts. Despite these two incidents and our children getting chicken pox and then tonsillitis, the month has gone pretty smoothly! The winter wheats and oats have just had their T1’s and the final dose of nitrogen. Oilseed rape is still flowering and the seed weevil damaged areas appear to be recovering but only time will tell what affect it will have on the yield. I am off to Aberdeen on Thursday as part of our Scottish Spring Barley YEN group which I am really looking forward to. Hopefully I will be able to pick up some ideas on how I can improve our yields a Sandystones. OSR still flowering All the growing cattle are now at grass and doing well. The first pheasant chicks have arrived on the game farm today which signifies the official start of the rearing season for us. There are reports that eggs/chick supplies could be very tight this year due to the very mild warm February and March.

Talking........Livestock

May 4th 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. Targets and Patience or lack of Patience seem to dominate farming at the moment. Firstly Targets can be a good thing in a business sense as they can produce healthy challenges to increase productivity and fresh thinking. So what happens whenever the targets are met? Do you be thankful? Do you set new targets? Does it become a time whenever enough is enough? Do you become complacent? Or most importantly what happens if you don’t reach them the next time round? To me that is the most important question as it can be what drains farmers mentally and can be demoralising but it has to be a reality as many outcomes are dictated by the weather ,disease and markets all of which are out of our control. So my take on targets is, use them wisely don’t get frustrated and if using them for bank borrowing use them realistically. Secondly patience has left the industry as ‘tomorrow needs to happen yesterday or at worst today’. e.g. genomics is a great scientific revolution in breeding and is speeding up progress, supposedly leaving poorer stock out of the equation. But where have the proven bulls gone in the dairy sector? Regardless of paperwork, bulls and their progeny need time to develop, we need longevity not “one lactation wonders”. Many genomic bulls disappear never getting a chance to prove themselves. Lack of Patience can also lead to panicking and that’s never good especially whenever the weather forecast is looking good even after a well needed shower or two of rain. Meanwhile with the field work up to date it is nice to be able to service it with topdressing and spraying etc The cows are only out by day as night temperatures aren’t high enough for the heavier milking cows, the down side of this is the work load and the length of the rotation but the low night temperatures have slowed grass growth anyway. The rest of the store cattle and dairy heifers are out and mopping up the grass quite quickly. More finishing cattle are due to go this week with only a few remaining and the last of the ones to be ready have got a 20 day withdrawal worm dose to try and speed the process up (there goes my patience). Arguably they showed no signs of worms and having been indoors for 6 months there shouldn’t be a problem but I based the decision on the fact that housed pigs need worm dosed but maybe they are different, but time will tell and so will the weighbridge. As the silage season looms at the start of the week, it may motivate me to prepare the remaining machinery to hopefully start a little earlier as a few extra acres have to be cut. 42

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

May 8th 2019

I was so impressed with Ian Mackenzie’s construction (see page 54) for his wife with the description of it being the 9th Wonder of the World, I emailed him saying congratulations on such a Herculean effort completed almost single handed and asked what the other eight are. The reply came back that our hen houses ranked no 8(?), below that he had no answers. In fact he apologized for writing such drivel, which I think is a little unfair on himself as his writings are much enjoyed this side of the equator. Guy Lee Ian and I fall into the same camp both being partially redundant to our businesses which are now run by our very capable sons. I hope I have my uses as well as being aware how frustrating I can be sometimes. I do most of the spraying which I have to say I enjoy. Our sprayer does not have youth on its side being 22 years old with over 16,000 hours and 260,000 kms on the clock. It is a Mercedes Benz forward control Unimog with a Gem sprayer, both makes being extremely well built and not showing their years. The machine is serviced and tested every year for NSTS certification and has proved very reliable with plenty of power for our hills. The beef market has been very weak since Christmas with slow demand and delays in booking in cattle. It appears to have bottomed out. Last week a buyer rang to ‘touch base’. It’s always a good sign when they contact you as it is the best indication that supplies must be tightening. Beef has had more than its fair share of negative publicity recently with the climate change protests in London, the UN endangered species report as well as continuing health warnings about the danger of red meat consumption. Eventually one feels that the consuming public must get punch drunk with so many issues in our world to be worried about - there is nothing better than a good steak and a glass (or three) of red wine. The values we receive for commodities produced on the farm are priced according to quality assessment of which is out of our control. All the cattle are sold on a deadweight basis with the price linked to the grades the carcase is given by the ‘Grader’ at the abattoir. These officials, in most cases work for a third party, and although standards are published the interpretation is subject to human assessment. One can often tell if the ‘usual grader’ is on holiday or personnel have changed. Our eggs are graded by machine and since the beginning of this year the offtakes have risen considerably, especially those rejected for being cracked. Initially we thought the problem was on the farm, thinking our egg collectors were not seeing them. On realisation that it was not just our eggs but other producers as well, transport was blamed. In the end it turned out to be over zealous Who’s idea was this? cleaning of the grading machine in the packing station. We have been compensated for the lost over 20 or Wilf just 3? income on the misgrading. Without producers working together the fault would never have been Tigger aged Answer on page 20 traced. 44

May 5th 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. Well that was quick! Spring has been and gone obviously and we have skipped summer and went straight to autumn. Well at least that’s how it feels temperature wise, after a few days of fantastic, warm, dry weather we are now back to the usual showers, wind and cooler conditions that are to be expected at the end of April and into May. However, the good weather has allowed us to get well ahead with work and we are now a bit ahead of average for the time of year. As of today (5/5/19) the carrots have been in the ground for ten days and are starting to chit nicely. We had a good amount of rain the day after we finished sowing them (which NEVER happens) which allowed us to apply the pre-emergence herbicide in great conditions. I now wait with bated breath for the emergence as it is only then that you see how good a job the seeder has done. This is despite spending ages checking over the machine in the winter, setting everything just so and checking and re-checking as seeding progresses. One problem this year has been very small carrot seed, this makes it hard to do a perfect job of singulating the seed on the discs. Basically each row has a disc with a series of holes in it, a vacuum is used to suck seeds onto the holes and then you have to set the machine so there is only one seed on each hole! Sounds easy? With the likes of energy beet which is pelleted it is. With carrots not so much, especially with seed lots that are smaller than average (I’m talking 1.2 to 1.6mm) it takes very little to go from sowing the correct rate to being either side of that by 20%! And you can just imagine the fun trying to see the seeds once they’re in the ground, it’s not so bad if the seed treatment is red or orange but blue seed is a bit of a nightmare. Anyway after all that we got them sown at about the right rate and spacing, the good thing about running a three bed seeder is that concentration doesn’t have to be maintained for long! As for the other root crops the beet is now through the ground and has benefitted from the couple of wet weekends we’ve had. Potato planting is still continuing but should be tidied up in another week. We’ve only lost 4 days since we started with weather but again it’s been a good interruption. On the ground preparation side we have been running the same pair of stone separators for 10 seasons now. In fairness we could cope with one but having two gives us resilience if we get bad weather and given their age they do not owe us much now. So looking to the future we have been getting demonstrations of various brands of machine, with only one demo still to go I can confidently say, they all do a good job! Much head scratching to follow I think. Cereals have enjoyed the welcome rain and are all looking well, barring one field of wheat that was hit hard with wheat bulb fly. Even this field though is coming away now and will give a useful crop. We have just about finished the T1 spray (which is growth stage 32 for all you agronomy fans) on the wheat. As ever it is a concoction of fungicides for; eyespot, mildew, septoria and rust, herbicide for broadleaved weeds and trace elements, and as ever it gets more expensive every year. Time for a rethink on variety choice maybe (well everything gets mildew when I grow it anyway so what is that scoring system worth to me!), but you have to be careful not to compromise other aspects. The varieties I grow (Istabraq and Zulu) have performed well over a number of years, and while I’ve had a try with various other ones they never give the results. Possibly better the devil you know in this case. This year I’m also trying some trials using different nutrition products but so far I’d say the jury’s still out, the truth will come with combining I suppose so watch this space. The flag leaves on the hybrid rye are just starting to emerge so it will be getting its last spray in the next few days, this will be a cheap fungicide for brown rust and mildew, some more growth regulator and trace elements. It is a cheaper crop to grow than wheat, even after factoring in a higher seed cost. It is also very competitive with weeds which adds a few brownie points when it comes to integrated pest management, but it’s a bit of a hard sell. Still I’m working away on that end, slowly slowly and all that. Apart from those few jobs we are still waiting to finish off carrot harvest, however the last few cleared fields are just about ready to be sown with spring oats. I think the record was 6 passes to incorporate the straw in one field. The dry lifting conditions were great but the straw ended up so dry that it took a lot to mix it with the soil. Hopefully we will carry on getting enough rain to feed the crops as this really helps the ones with lots of straw underneath them. Right that’s enough, I’m off to see who “H” is on Line of Duty! 46

Talking........from Lincolnshire

May 6th 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. No column in an agricultural magazine is complete without a mention of the weather, so I thought I would get mine in early! Whilst parts of the country have had sensible amounts of rain, we were still largely dry with cracks appearing in the land of spring crops already. So you can sense the excitement when the Met Office App forecast 34mm for the following day. I abandoned the half-finished spreadsheets, jumped on the sprayer, loaded up the pipes and set off to the fertiliser tower. Yes it was sunny, yes it was breezy but none of this mattered because the fertiliser needed to be on before/ during the rain. I was charging around like a mad man, and then the first spot arrived on the windscreen, and then another. I pushed the stick forwards further and went faster still. I knew I was doing the right thing, the weather gods were on my side; a hazy picture of the wet windscreen was sent to friends proclaiming the drought was broken… And that was it, no more. Just enough rain to stick the fertiliser to the leaf which now has an interesting appearing in 50 orange tip. We have subsequently had 11mm in the last week over 4 days which will have washed the Cracks day old spring oats fertiliser in, but is it enough? No. I am still comparing cultivation methods from the autumn, with the conclusions being well… inconclusive. The land that was only subsoiled, leaving all the stubble intact, has the most visible cracks, the most instances of slug pressure, but a far lower incidence of Pea & Bean Weevil. Whereas the surface cultivated land has retained the moisture better, been less hospitable to slugs, but the weevil pressure is far higher. The most interesting aspect is that retaining large amounts of residue seems to seriously limit insect pressure whether it be weevil in beans or cabbage stem flea beetle in oilseed rape. I am sure it is coincidence, but since The General License was revoked the crows have been murdering my beans. On only a handful of occasions have we had to resort to shooting crows for crop protection in previous years, but at these times it needed doing then and not having to wait for specific licenses to be issued by an inept bureaucratic monster. I am not sure if the world is going mad, but to receive a phone call from one of the best farmers within my peer group, stating his total disillusionment with the industry added a certain degree of clarity for me. And then the Residue protecting spring beans following day you see senior politicians jostling and falling over one another to get a PR picture taken with a random 16 year old school girl who wants to save the world rather than doing what they are elected to do just gets my hackles up. But count your blessings, it could be worse. At least we got a vote on the 650 oxygen wasting excuses for humanity in Westminster, we could be governed by politicians even more inept we didn’t elect… 48

Talking.........Organic

May 8th 2019

Simon Bainbridge farms in partnership with his wife Claire and his parents, Ivan and Elisabeth in Northumberland. They run suckler beef, sheep and laying hen enterprises across 650 ha of mainly SDA and moorland organically. It would be an understatement to say that the last month has been ‘a bit busy’. We always knew it was going to be full on, but at times it has been relentless. Our new birds arrived into the new building and they are the best pullets we have had to date. Good weights, moving round the system well, going up at night to perch. Tick, tick, tick. We have however had a trying time with the feed. The positioning of one of the motors that drives the augers has had to be changed. Over the Easter bank holiday and longer we had to supervise every feed going into the shed in order to get feed to the birds. Ten days of extra stress and numerous different people trying to fix the problem. We eventually got that sorted, for that problem to be replaced by another feed issue. For some reason the birds weren’t eating the feed and consumption levels were going down each day. We have now changed to a different feed and consumption is back on track. All problems that we had not expected, but all hopefully resolved now. Birds are starting to lay now, however we don’t want too many eggs just yet as the packer is yet to arrive! The success or failure of our outdoor lambing is all down to the weather. This year we have been blessed with almost perfect conditions and I have reminded the shepherd and his able assistant that they should enjoy it this year as it may snow next year! We have been lucky enough to shut up approximately 130 acres for an early cut of silage, fingers crossed, to start to rebuild lost silage stocks from the winter of 17/18 and last year’s drought. Lambs are now being cut and moved off the remaining silage ground hopefully by the 15th of May which is when the remaining silage fields will be shut up. Calving has gone well so far… touch wood. We have had a few problems, most notably two full breaches with heifers, which became side door jobs, ably performed by Black Sheep Farm Health. We pelvic measured the 2018 born heifers yesterday. They have done very well and we have a group of 60 heifers which are the right size, weight and pelvic measurement score and the right temperament. We will have to narrow the selection down a bit further, so any wrong move and they move from the breeding group to the fattening group. Spring drilling is done with barley and vetch under-sown with a multi species cutting sward. The rain today will hopefully set everything away. The forecast is for quite a bit of rain over the next few days – this is much needed for the 2,000 trees we have planted on the ranges, but hopefully not too much to cause casualties for the remaining ewes lambing.

Talking........New Zealand

May 3rd 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. They said it couldn’t be done. A task so complicated; so technologically challenging; so dangerous; so physically daunting; so prone to mis-calculation; that it was beyond the scope of all but the super-human. Certainly not suited to one that is rapidly approaching old age and the accompanying physical and mental retardation. Shunning advice I set out to go where no man has been before. I knew they were talking about me. Progress was quite slow and not always obvious. I had set backs and made mistakes. Translating the instructions into English was in itself a challenge as I wasn’t sure what Eastern language they were in in the first place. I knew they doubted my ambition. 9th wonder of the world The instructions called for a team of 4; although as far as I could tell one was a health and safety officer (I only suffered 2 squashed fingers and a brief moment of concussion when a large wooden beam fell on my head and knocked me silly), and one was merely to pass the components to the two who were doing the work. Both I considered unnecessary . I tried to find that second person to do the work but no-one stepped up to the challenge. I occasionally asked William or the Wee One PLENTY IN STOCK for assistance but was rejected. I asked some of the other staff. - SO MANY USES They promised to turn up after they had finished some job or other but never did. I even asked the Boss for assistance who did Prices are collected and help but mainly gave advice. subject to VAT, delivery can be arranged Despite the doubters, the sniggers and gossip I persevered. Through the cold of spring, the rain storms and floods of November, • 1 - 10 @ £26 each • 51-100 @ £23 each through the heat and hurricanes of summer; I persevered. • 11-25 @ £25 each • 100+ @ £22 each And now, almost exactly nine months later, I have finished. • 26 - 50 @ £24 each They are still talking about the task, but now it is in awe and wonderment. They come to look and admire it’s simplicity of 11 feet 6 inches long @ 40kg each line, it’s aesthetic design; it’s practical application, it’s beauty. They are calling it one of the new wonders of the world. 07703 571 291 / 07759 530 013 The boss’s new glasshouse. 01835 830 507

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

May 2019

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. With no clear direction or position over the terms of the United Kingdomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s withdrawal from the European Union there is still great future uncertainty for farmers, only until these matters are resolved will there be a better idea of future commodity prices and subsidy payments. It is important in these uncertain and potentially volatile times businesses are continually assessed and monitored. This time of year is a good time for many farmers to assess and appraise their businesses when spring tasks are completed and reasonable expectations can be made over yield and prices. Properly assessing the financial status of a farming business and knowing where the cash pinch points are is in many cases the difference between success and failure for many farming businesses. One of the challenges of budgeting is being realistic with your projections and assumptions as well as budgeting honestly. Being over optimistic on your calculations will not serve you well when it comes to the reality of your cash flow and the requirements for working capital. Often having independent advice is a considered approach as being removed from the business can allow more realistic budgeting, this is something that the team of advisers at Edwin Thompson can assist with, with a number of the team also having practical agricultural knowledge. Without independent advice there is a risk budgets figures are inputted to gloss over or hide potential issues, in these uncertain and volatile times having a second opinion can give a more realistic approach. For some the strategy for planning ahead may mean some fag packet calculations at a reasonably sensible figure, speaking to the bank manager and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hope for the best outcomeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. It is a strategy that could be costly and the chances of having to do it all again in six months with a poor set of accounts is likely to be high. By undertaking proper budgeting this will allow farmers to fully consider all key financial drivers of their business and being able to be proactive rather than reactive to the future challenges. This could include the short to medium term cash needs but may also include the need to invest in the business over time. It may also assist in future long-term strategic planning. Edwin Thompson are an agent for AMC who specialise in lending money to farmers and landowners. A long-term loan from AMC can provide a way to repay existing hard-core debt over a long term, up to 30 years. Loans can be structured to suit your particular circumstances including interest only or repayment terms of variable or fixed rates of interest. Once in place the loan is uncallable (and can be passed across generations) so long as loan commitments are met. Interest rate margins are agreed for the term of the loan and there are no annual reviews. This means they can provide loans up to 30 years at fixed rates on repayment or interest only terms at competitive rates with no reviews and which is uncallable if loan commitments are met. Should you wish to find out more about AMC please contact one of our advisers, Andrew Hamilton or Hugh Jones on 01896 751300 or Nigel Parmenter on 01289 304432.
