ENHANCED GRAIN TREATMENT

SIMPLE, ECONOMICAL & POWERFUL FEEDING With feed prices set to remain high, making the most of home-grown cereals and reducing the reliance on bought in feed protein will be essential to minimise feed costs this year. However, this does not have to be complicated or at the expense of performance. Treating cereals with ALpHA at harvest, or all year round with ALpHA365, not only increases the protein content of grain but also increases its pH to 9, allowing you to feed higher levels of alkaline starch to help maintain rumen health and increase the performance of dairy, beef and sheep of all ages and stages. Cheaper, Safer, Higher Performance. Sound to good to be true? The very real benefits of adopting a simpler, more powerful ALpHA feeding system sometimes have to be seen to be believed. If you would like to see ALpHA in action for yourself, please get in touch. “I have been using ALpHA for the past 4 seasons and I am delighted with performance, gut health and cattle cleanliness. The increase in protein means that the only feed protein we have needed to buy in has been for the creep mix at grass. Once they are weaned at 9 months the cattle receive no extra protein supplementation, which has significantly reduced our feed costs. The bulls are away at 13 months old, currently averaging 1.65kgLWG/d from birth, K.O at 56% and grading as well as continentals, which has meant that our average carcass value has been exceptional this year.

“Alpha is a perfect fit to my system as I can use it to treat grain both at harvest and on dried grain later in the season with ALpHA365. We also like the flexibility of being able to use a higher rate of urea when making ALpHA, which has significantly reduced our feed protein costs, especially in youngstock rations. “The mixes are also simple and being able to see the cattle averaging 1.6kgLWG/day on a silage based TMR containing most of our own feed is amazing” Andrew Hodge, Rulesmains Farm, Duns

The fuel consumption you achieve in real life conditions and CO2 produced will depend upon a number of factors including accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load etc. Official fuel figures for the Isuzu D-Max range in MPG (l/100km): Urban 30.4 - 38.7 (9.3 - 7.3).

Intelligent Hands Off Heatpump Systems Background

We have just completed our largest Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) installation ever at WL Douglas and Sons in Berwick-upon-Tweed, the second successful installation with the company. The original pump was the first-of-its-kind to simultaneously heat/chill, with the upgrade now providing over 7mW of capacity to dry over 30,000 tonnes of grain and grass. The Project With almost 20 years designing and installing heat pumps, the Calibrate team put together a plan to pre-heat the air onto the burners at 45°C, whilst also using the free chilling to cool down the products to 8 – 12°C below ambient prior to storage. The new pump heats and humidifies the air before it is passed through the grain and grass on the drying floor, whilst the chilling by-product is used to dehumidify air onto the drying system, chill the produce post-drying and aids overall efficiency of the system. Calibrate’s innovative cloud-based controller remotely manages the full process from a smart device allowing the client a ‘hands off’ approach. The Figures • A 3-5 year payback on the 20 year RHI scheme

“When we made the decision to invest in heat pump technology, we looked at various companies who offered this service, we narrowed these companies down to Calibrate due to their professional approach and because they were able to carry out the full bespoke design, installation and also support the system with a comprehensive long term maintenance agreement. We were not disappointed with Calibrate and would highly recommend them.” Ian Douglas

• 45°C at 400% heating efficiency • 1°C at 325% chilling efficiency • Total energy efficiency of 725%

THEY BROKE MY NECKLACE May 2021 I am sorry to have disappointed so many when they found out my trip to the Suez was no more than an April Fool. No less I have enjoyed the fame and the standing it has given me in the community. Two excitements in the past month, a successful recovery of a bogged tractor but a failure here at home. First the tractor - this was at Upper Chatto, a hill farm in the Kale Water Valley. The journey there is very pretty but the road up to the farm is seriously steep and narrow, I was almost down to bottom gear. I was met by Alan, a very friendly chap, who told me he had taken the tractor out to the hill to lift a cow that had got stuck in a ditch. This he achieved but on his way home he found the only wet hole he didn’t know about and the tractor stuck in the peat. We drove out to the site, I was nervously looking out for other traps he was not aware of but luckily found none. The cable was pulled out by his quad bike as I could not get close enough. Using one of my pulleys to ease the strain I was soon pulling. The spades went down, the wire tightened and slowly the tractor was moving but rather than rise out of the hole as they usually do, it ploughed on through the mire and didn’t find dry ground for 30 yards or so. It then rose out and was soon being driven under its own power. Alan was happy, I was ecstatic and we all drove joyfully back to the steading. I then had to negotiate the steep drive down to the road. I asked Alan to go in front to stop any traffic that might be coming up as I was fearful my brakes might not have enough air for such a long descent. Happily I made it down without a problem and was soon on the journey home. The next task was to pull three tree stumps out on this farm. The dead ash trees had been cut down leaving four foot high stumps for me to pull over. First job was to put my necklace around one of them. Now, this was new last year and my pride and joy. What I didn’t realise was that it is also my weakest HCAER TUO M5.9 + HCAER THGIEH M91 • point and rather than the stump falling over THGIEW TEKSAB DETCIRTSERNU GK032 • the chain broke. So they tried putting my cable around the tree. Well I could have told DERETSIGER .A.P.C • them that this would not work. I pulled the stumps so far but of course then it just T kept CELLOC NAC U Y RM O OUT TSEUREACH QER NO ELBALIAVA YREVILED • • 19M HEIGHT REACH + O9.5 slipping off. owa 20.10 A sad and disappointing failure. • 230KG UNRESTRICTED ESU ROOBASKET DNI ROFWEIGHT DEREWOP CIRTCELE RO LESEID • Wendy writes

Under UK law, a forklift truck must undergo a Thorough Examination at least once every 12 months. More frequent inspections are required if it works more than 40 hours per week or operates in demanding environments. It is your responsibility to ensure that the truck has a valid ‘Report of Thorough Examination’ before you allow an operator to use it.

A CFTS Thorough Examination inspects safety-critical components, such as brakes and steering (under PUWER 98), as well as lifting mechanisms (under LOLER 98). CFTS-accredited examiners follow strict procedural standards. When you choose a CFTS Thorough Examination you will receive: A Report of Thorough Examination that fully complies with LOLER 98 and PUWER 98 - A checklist of what has been examined with a record of comments - A certificate to keep with the truck’s documents - A sticker, affixed to the truck, to show the month and year of the due date for the next Thorough Examination

On Our Farm

May 12th 2021 Hugo Lee farms in partnership with his father, Guy, at Sandystones, near St Boswells. Arable crops of wheat, oilseed rape, malting barley, oats and rye are grown, 400 Angus cattle are finished annually, 6000 organic hens produce eggs for Waitrose and 14,000 organic point of lay pullets reared each year. Finally some warmer weather has arrived after the coldest April for over 60 years. Arable crops on the whole are looking ok and the recent rain has been most welcome. Sixteen nights of continuous hard frosts in April combined with a biting northerly wind hit the oilseed rape very hard. Recovery has been extremely slow with the crop still not fully in flower. Lasts night’s hailstorm did not help! With prices hovering around the high £450/t for harvest it has become a very attractive crop to grow despite the risks associated with it. The luxury of being able to go spraying whenever you want has gone in a flash. The very catchy weather has provided us with few spray windows. Fortunately we applied the T1 Wilf and I checking on the cattle on the way back from football on the wheat and winter barley just before the weather broke. All our grazing cattle are now outside and this warm wet weather will really help to get the grass growing. The next few months will be interesting as we go back to some sort of normality. As people return to eating out will the fat cattle price drop or due to the lack of supply could it even go up? There were rumours last month that it could go as high as £5/kg by the end of the year. I very much doubt it will get anywhere near this level, however I think prices will remain buoyant. Once again straw looks like it could be in short supply due to the dry April. Winter barley which is usually around welly boot height at this time of year is only just above the ankle. I really hope by the time I sit down to write the next article we will have finally broken ground on the treehouse project. There appears to be a glimmer of light at the end the tunnel as we should get our building warrant by the end of this week. My first Farmer Time video call is on Monday. I have been linked with the reception class from Tollerton Primary School, Nottingham. Farmer Time is all about harnessing the power of digital communications to inspire, engage and educate young people about not only the journey from farm to fork but also the ever changing, diverse agricultural industry. I am really looking forward to it and hope that they enjoy experiencing a little bit of what we do up here in the Borders. As usual the jobs list for this time of year seems to be getting ever bigger. There are tracks to repair, new trees to spray, cover crops to drill and a treehouse to build! The list never gets completed and it can be very easy to work all day every day. I really like taking Wilf to football on Saturday mornings. It ensures I get off the farm for a couple of hours and switch off. I usually take the girls as well and they either watch or Training for show jumping at play in the playground. Jess then gets a few hours child free which she loves. However this weekend, all the next St Boswells Show is about to change as I start coaching - don’t tell Jess!

May 10th 2021

Will Howe is an arable farmer from Sleaford, Lincolnshire. The soils are predominantly heavy. There is 365ha of cropping including winter wheat, spring beans, spring oats and the introduction of grass leys used to rear Native Dairy X calves. He also manages a contracting business Thorpe Farming Ltd. Things are slowly returning to normal. I can now go to the pub, so long as I don’t mind freezing to death, the rain has finally come accompanied with a balmy 14 degrees and Wee Jimmy Cranky has already forgotten about the pandemic and wants her independence back. Having got 42mm of rain in the last week and the temperature finally reaching double digits the crops The oat and bean intercrop and grass are visibly moving by the day. Prior to this we had only 39mm in 10 weeks, and more concerningly 14-night frosts in April. It has been the bitingly cold and dry easterly wind which has kept checking plant growth, more than a lack of moisture. It is amazing the snake oils dug out from the back of the distributor’s warehouse during times of crop stress. A bit of this and a bit of that soon leads to a £100/ha cost when all that was needed was 25mm of warm rain. If I am ever recommended such a product, I feel it is reasonable to ask for independent trial data. That normally cuts the conversation short, and we move on to the next topic! As part of my midlife crisis resulting from turning 40 last year, I am now experimenting more on the farm. A slight drawback is I have no accurate way of recording results, but I am having a lovely time The Siskin has survived the cold and feel like I am an agricultural pioneer pushing the boundaries of the final frontier. When all I am and dry better than the Graham winter wheat doing is copying bits and bobs of what I have seen elsewhere! The spring oats and bean crop is coming along really well, there are a few too many cleaver patches in places but we will persevere and possibly try hoeing or tined weeding. Other experiments have mainly been cultivation based. I employ the services of a soil structure adviser who comes a few times per year. I use this as an opportunity to clarify my thoughts, and to get an extra set of eyes across what I am doing. It is too easy to look at a situation and see what you want to see to fit your theory, as opposed to seeing exactly what is there. The summary of the last meeting was that with the We will provide the complete farm having been redrained and all the crops looking very well, service for all your steel framed now would be a good time to reduce cultivations even further, and building requirements possibly completely in some instances. A way to further progress • Straw Sheds • Stable Blocks this is to control our harvest traffic. So now I need to decide on a • Riding Arenas • Muck Middens 24m system to fit the current sprayer and drill, or a 30m system to • Grain Stores • Silage pits fit the combine.

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

May 12th 2021

If you watched Line of Duty you will be familiar with acronyms such as OCG, UCO, CHIS , SIO, DIR etc but that is nothing compared to the ones that we had to get our heads round recently. Ten days ago, I listened to Hugo gradually becoming more frustrated as he was going through the process of getting the paperwork in order to transport day old chicks to Northern Ireland. We already had an EORI (Economic Operators Registration and Identification) number which you need to move goods anywhere outside GB but for NI you need a different EORI number. First he had to register with TSS (Trader Support Guy Lee Services), to allow an SFD (Simplified Frontier Declaration) He then completed an ENS (Entry Summary Declaration) which led to completing a DEC (Declaration Entry Certificate). Next was to receive a GVMS (Goods Vehicle Movement Service) which allows the creation of a GMR (Goods Movement Reference) which is the bar code that enables goods into NI. But as we are transporting live birds we needed an export health certificate which is checked by our vet who has to see the chicks on the day of export and approve them fit to travel. He then stamps the 8 page document about 30 times. This certificate is then emailed to the customer in NI who needs information on the weight, invoice number, GMR etc . A CHED-A (Common Health Entry Document-Animals) is then created which allows import into the EU. All this is attached and sent to the port of entry (Belfast in this case). After all this and the stories we had heard of goods being held up at the docks with the wrong paperwork, I volunteered to drive the chicks to the customer. Armed with a lever arch file of all the paperwork I set off to Cairnryan to catch the 23:30 sailing to Belfast. The ferry arrived on time at 01:45, surrounded by large trucks I got into the van and followed the lorries off the ship and through the docks. Expecting to be stopped at any time, I looked out for people wanting to see my documents (I even had my passport!). There were four people wearing Hi Vis jackets standing in between the lanes of traffic but not stopping any vehicles and on we all drove. I soon found myself on the M1 heading South and thought Lord Frost must have done a great job reducing the inspections of goods. All that fuss for nothing. What do I do now? I had allowed at least two hours for inspections, it was 02:30 in the morning, I only had 80 miles to go and the customer could not take delivery until it was light. So I pulled into a services on the motorway to kill some time. After about 20 minutes my phone rang, it was DAERA (Department of Agriculture) saying they were waiting for me, I should have stopped to be inspected. The four people in the Hi Vis were looking for my number plate and expecting me to be driving a lorry rather than a van and had not spotted me. I had to drive the 10 miles back to Belfast go through two locked gates and into a compound where they asked for the health certificate, checked the chicks, found everything to be in order and I was allowed on my way. I arrived at the farm at 5am, unloaded the chicks, was on my way home at 6, caught the 11:30 ferry arriving back home 23 hours after leaving. A day and night to remember! 46

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

May 2021

Demand for rural plots of land for new homes in the Borders remained strong at Edwin Thompson’s Galashiels office throughout 2020 and is continuing through this year. We are also dealing with a range of planning enquiries from potential developers, with the demand for advice within the rural sector being particularly strong. Beyond the appraisal and planning application stages, we have been busy working with purchasers to service plots with power, water and drainage. Edwin Thompson, with our broad range of in-house expertise, is well-placed to offer a ‘one stop shop’ approach in helping Clients through the planning and development process from the appraisal of a site to the servicing of the land. We are receiving enquiries relating to the changes to permitted development rights which came into action in April. Whereas full planning permission was previously required for the conversion of farm buildings to houses and commercial uses, this will change with the system adopting a more relaxed approach, extending existing Permitted Development rights, meaning that planning permission is deemed to be granted for a range of development. There are, however, still procedures to be followed and a fair amount of information still needs to be provided to Planning Authority before development can begin. Permitted development rights will apply to new agricultural buildings in some locations, allowing new buildings measuring up to 1000 sqm in footprint; this is more than a 50% increase on the longstanding 465 sqm which previously applied. Several exceptions do remain, which we can advise Clients on. Further, permitted development rights will apply to the conversion of agricultural and forestry buildings to dwellings and other commercial uses, subject to criteria and restrictions. It will be possible to convert agricultural buildings into up to 5 dwellings, none of more than 150 sqm footprint, after following a notification procedure to the Planning Authority. Officers can then ask for further detail if they feel it is necessary to enable them to assess the application. Our team will be pleased to guide Clients through the process. In terms of the commercial uses which farm buildings may be converted to, following the necessary procedures and subject to any exceptions, these include shops, (class 1), financial and professional services (class 2), food and drink (class 3), business (class 4), storage and distribution (class 6) and non-residential institution (class 10). Whilst the relaxations are a welcome boost to farms and other rural businesses, it should be noted that applicants will still need to supply a reasonable amount of information, including drawings, to the Planning Authority relating to issues including external appearance, access, potential contamination, flood risk and residential amenity. Beyond this, Planning Officers will have the right to seek what is known as ‘Prior Approval’ if they feel that further information is needed to fully assess the development proposal. Please contact Kate Jenkins at our Galashiels office (01896 751300) if you would like to discuss any planning and development matters or the new changes to permitted development rights which have recently arrived.

May 2021 Selina Cairns, Errington Cheese Ltd We have been milking sheep here in South Lanarkshire near Biggar since the early 1980’s. My father Humphrey Errington started the idea after reading of the history of sheep milking in the area and wanted to diversify so the farm was not reliant on government subsidies. My husband Andrew Cairns took over running the farm just over 11 years ago and we now run around 300 Dairy Lacaune ewes plus replacements. As the sheep are very seasonal we only milk them from February to September. We had to have a good think about how to keep the cheese side of the business going after we stopped making cows milk cheese (milk was purchased from another farm) so we decided on dairy goats since we are able to use the same parlour. So, in the summer of 2019 we bought 100 dairy goats which due to demand for the cheese has now increased to almost 150 which are milked all year round. All the milk that we produce on the farm is used to make cheese. We sell it mainly through wholesalers across England and Scotland who distribute it to specialist cheesemongers, farm shops, food halls, restaurants and hotels. Our sheep’s cheeses are Lanark Blue, Corra Linn and our goats cheeses are Elrick Log and Blackmount. You can buy them from Neals Yard Dairy, The Courtyard Dairy and Ian Mellis to name a few, also from us directly at the farm or online at www.erringtoncheese.co.uk. We regularly attend Edinburgh & Glasgow farmers markets which have had a surge of new customers over the past 6 months due to Covid as people are becoming much more aware of buying and supporting local and the health benefits of eating unprocessed foods. We make a small amount of other cheeses with the milk at certain times of the year to use up any surplus milk which we sell at markets and locally. This has been particularly useful over the past year where hospitality closures have meant a huge fall in sales. Looking forward we are keen to make our business as sustainable as possible so we have been looking to diversify further by building some eco friendly holiday homes alongside a farm shop & café showcasing our own produce along with other locally sourced quality produce giving our customers the opportunity to engage where real food comes from. Hopefully, this will progress over the coming year. Maybe not where you immediately think of as a tourism destination, Lanarkshire is situated in Central Scotland and is very accessible from both Glasgow and Edinburgh. As well as an area you have to drive through on the way North/South from England it is the perfect location to develop your farm business to provide much needed new income streams and make the most of the day tripping visitors from the North and the South. You will find an array of interesting businesses developed on farm such as; Gin distillery’s - The Wee Farm Distillery www. theweefarmdistillery.co.uk, farm shops such as Herron Farm Shop in Strathaven www.theheronfarmshop.com and bespoke eco friendly farm holiday accommodation such as Burnhead Bothies www.burnheadbothies.com Interested in learning more about Scottish Agritourism?

Talking........North of the Forth

May 10th 2021

Tom Pate farms 240ha of arable on a tenanted farm in Angus. Cropping includes wheat, spring barley, rye and oilseed rape along with land let for potatoes and vining peas. Additionally, around 6500 pigs are reared annually under contract and 600 Christmas turkeys sold directly to the public under the KellyBronze franchise. On his wife’s 380ha family farm in the Angus Glens they also run 200 red deer hinds plus followers for venison production, along with developing a forestry enterprise. Farmers usually have a keen interest in what is happening in neighbouring fields. At the moment I am a particularly nosey neighbour as just over our farm boundary one of Scotland’s largest civil engineering works is currently in progress. It starts far out in the North Sea where the 114 turbine Seagreen wind farm is being constructed. The 1075MW of electricity, enough to power over 1.6million homes (equivalent to two-thirds of Scottish homes), is being transferred via 40km of subsea cables and then 19km of underground cables to a vast substation at Tealing just north of Dundee. The sheer scale and logistics of this project are mindboggling. There are, in fact, three cable ducts to be laid side by side which are required to navigate under roads (including both the A90 and A92), the main East Coast railway, the famous Carnoustie Golf Links, watercourses and, most importantly, farmland. An army of bulldozers, excavators, cranes, dumper trucks and specialist drilling and Preparations are made in my neighbours field to drill under the A90 cable laying kit have been beavering away for months clearing a 50m wide tract of land to allow the cable to be laid. The cable is buried at an average 1.8 metres but will go around 9 metres deep under obstacles. Drystane dykes have been carefully deconstructed and placed in bulk bags ready to be rebuilt, access roads have been built into fields and the whole length has been fenced and most recently vast drums of cable have been delivered onto site ready to be pulled through the pre-laid ducts. From our farm you can see the cable making its last leg under the A90 and into Tealing substation. On a clear day the impressive Saipem 7000 floating crane (14,000t lifting capacity) constructing subsea bases for turbines themselves can be seen on the horizon although this is currently working on the neighbouring Neart Na Gaol windfarm. Wind turbines for the Seagreen project will begin construction later this year and are expected to be operational by 2023.

May 9th 2021 Ian Mackenzie is an arable and dairy farmer from the Canterbury Plain in the South Island of New Zealand. He runs a number of fully irrigated intensive cropping farms, producing grain, vegetable and grass seeds with some stock finishing. Last weekend was the start of the duck hunting season that means winter should be creeping up on us but apart from daylight hours becoming shorter there is no sign of it yet. The weather is warm and very dry… great weather for finishing the radish harvest. We have had only 40mm of rain since the beginning of January and those parts of coastal Canterbury without irrigation are in serious drought. The boys are about to start drilling the autumn wheat, having held off waiting for rain, but there has been none so they’ll drill into dry ground. They may have to irrigate to get the seed to strike. In the meantime the lambs and cows are loving the balmy autumn. The first 400 lambs are going to slaughter this week. We have invested in a super smart automatic weigher and drafter which is a pretty cool bit of kit. You set the weight of lambs you want selected (45-50kgs) and then just run them Where are the bloody ducks? up the race and the auto drafter weighs and selects the lambs automatically (which is why it is called an automatic drafter I guess). Butch and Gin the 2 bearded collies do all the work of chasing the lambs up the race…Butch is what is called a backing dog in that he runs up the race on the back of the lambs then drops down into the race and walks back chasing the lambs up as he goes…all too easy really. We’ll put a roof over the drafter for a bit of shelter and may need to install a sofa so we can be comfortable watching! The drought has kept store lamb prices in check a wee bit despite predictions of an $8/kg winter lamb price, so the plan is to buy a few more lambs and take 4500 into the winter. Weighing and drafting The cows are having a great season. Production is still holding really well as we get to the end of the remotely milking year. We will dry the herd off at the end of May. Milk prices are looking pretty strong for the year ending, and we have been selling milk forward for next season at $7.50/kg milk solids (65c/l). It would appear that Fonterra has been very successful in keeping its supply chains open despite the challenges of covid and those on the end of the supply chains still want to eat…so all good. Less good is Jacinda’s efforts at rolling out the covid vaccine. I think the latest report said she has managed to inoculate half her cabinet, 3 doctors and a policeman, and that took two and a half months. It has been suggested that the vaccination programme be handed over to farmers. We know a farmer with a good dog and an automatic drafting race can inoculate 1000 sheep/hour. We would be very happy to answer our nation’s call and set up inoculation stations in all the towns. It would only take a week to do all 4,500,000 NZers. Essential assistance And it is unhelpful to suggest we would only use blunt needles on members of extinction rebellion. 54

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. Finally, after a busy six weeks we can catch our breath. Lambing is pretty much done, we have started cutting and with less than 30 cows left to calve we feel like we’re on the home straight. Weather wise it has been a lambing to forget. There were some really good days and some really bad days, but we will not be alone. However, the team did a fantastic job given all the challenges. Spring seems to have sprung, albeit mixed with sharp showers, with a slightly warmer wind after the rain and hail. Our wholecrop, under sown with grass has now emerged after going in well, but in very dry conditions. We have hen muck to go on some early silage ground, but at present the wind direction is not playing ball as we do not want smells blowing over the hen houses. We need to be very careful with the hens as they certainly don’t want any extra challenges at the moment, especially in one of the houses. We still have some mortality and it’s clear that the housing order, followed by opening the pop holes to bright sunlight and cold weather has increased the birds stress levels. We are managing it and mortality has fallen, but we need to keep monitoring their behaviour. We have introduced new enrichments and turned the lights down a bit to try to reduce stress and boredom. We are now in the routine of turning round the holiday cottage and the hot tub. The feedback from holiday makers has so far been very positive. There is always that moment of opening the door when the guests have gone, not really knowing what you’re going to be presented with. So far guests have been very tidy. The question is, should we be investing in further tourism opportunities, or will the market become flooded, especially if everyone returns to overseas holidays once the government allows? We still know so little about the future of our support schemes in England. As we all Lister Supershear & Heiniger Shearing & know BPS will be cut from this year and I find it very frustrating that future business Clipping Equipment planning is now so difficult. Do we hold out for future environmental schemes, but given • Cutters & Combs that ELMS does not start until 2024 can we afford to wait?
