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.

A Unique Combination of Innovation and Excellence MARCH 2018

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

A MISSED OPPORTUNITY

Wendy writes

He was away as he seems to be most of the time when a call went out for a lorry stuck on the bridge just below the farm. With 28 tonnes of fertiliser on board the driver had followed his Sat Nav and ended up by Sawmill Cottage trying to negotiate a bridge that vehicles of that length cannot get over. The driver tried to reverse out of the situation and made it worse with one side of the trailer getting bogged in the verge and leaning at a precarious angle.

Where am I? Back in hospital again this time with a potential damaged shaft on the winch. Whose fault do you think it was? You guessed it - HIS of course. So when the call went out for a recovery not 300 yards from my bedroom and I was not at home. I felt exasperated, Stuck on the bridge please can someone come and rescue me! Although there was a positive side in that he met a Mr Jock Borthwick in whose yard Big Red has been sitting for all those years. They talked of rescuing the poor old chap from the graveyard he currently resides in, and maybe, just maybe he could be back in my arms again. The problem he has got serious problems down below, this is something the NHS cannot fix, he will have to go privately. I heard of the wonderful result from the Tartan Giraffe Ball, over £250,000 raised for research into MND is amazing. I would have loved to have gone – me and Big Doddie dancing away. As you may have read we had an appeal in Agrimart. We are giving 5% of our gross revenue from the January magazine and that together with very generous donations from our readers means that he has presented a cheque for almost £1500 to My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. A huge thank you to all those who so kindly donated

Talking......... Business

February 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. Some important dates for your diaries SPORTING RATES Non Domestic rates were reintroduced by the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016 on shooting and deer forests with effect from 1 April 2017. The assessment of rateable value is based on information supplied from the questionnaires sent out in 2016, and also from the 2015 SAF. Different rates are applied to land, regardless of whether any sporting or shooting activity actually takes place. These are based on a comparative basis using historic rental evidence. Rateable values are assessed on area and vary from £2 per hectare for deer forest or moor to £5 per hectare for woodland. A number of valuation notices for sporting rates were issued at the end of September 2017, some valuations are still to be issued, and therefore the end of the six month window to appeal the valuation is fast approaching. If the valuation is wrong then this represents the last opportunity until the next revaluation to appeal the valuation and have it revised. If no appeal is warranted or justifiable, then it is important to make use of the Small Business Bonus Scheme which 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. This relief can be applied for online or by contacting the local assessor and filling out a form. BASIC PAYMENT SCHEME ENTITLEMENT TRANSFERS All Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) entitlements must be validated at least once every two years, if not they are lost to the National Reserve. If BPS claimants have surplus entitlement or require additional entitlements then the transfer deadline for Basic Payment Entitlements this year is Monday 2nd April 2018. The Department must have received notification and the required documents by then of any sales, gifts, leases, assignation or inheritance of Basic Payment Scheme entitlements that will be claimed on the SAF in 2018 and to receive payment this year. Therefore anyone requiring additional entitlements or with surplus entitlements that cannot be validated this year need to start thinking about what their options are. AGRI-ENVIRONMENT CLIMATE SCHEME The 2018 Agri-Environment Climate Scheme application round opened on Wednesday 17 January, and the deadline for applications has been set for Friday 13 April 2018. The scheme is aimed at providing targeted funding to farmers and land managers to promote conservation through management options and capital items. These environmental schemes have formed a core part of many farming systems. They can help improve marginal areas and farm’s amenity, whilst offering environmental benefits from land management options to meet national priorities. These SRDP schemes are subject to a finite budget and a competitive scoring process so applications need to be carefully planned out and take time to assemble. Five year management contracts are likely to be awarded in 2019 for successful applications, it is not clear at present if the scheme will be available in the future, this year’s application window may be the final opportunity under the current rules and application process to apply for grant funding. For further information or advise on any of the above please contact Ben Burbridge (Galashiels office) on 01896 751300

Talking......... Organic

February 6th 2018 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. This month has been very productive and we have had a really good clear out this last month with over 800 head of sheep being sold and 40 fat cattle away to Dovecote Park. It’s good to get them away for the bank balance, but also good to make life easier with less stock on the farm. Having jumped through a few more administrative hoops we have finally received our BPS at the end of January so the bank balance will be sitting significantly healthier than recent months. The ewes are to scan next week. All those in lamb will be fluked. Cows will be Johnes tested and will receive their clostridial booster vaccine the week after we scan the ewes. Calves need their routine blood test for the SRUC Premium Cattle Health Scheme for BVD Free. At the same time any horned Herefords will be de-horned. The last of the hoggs have gone onto the remaining field of brassicas. Any left once this has been grazed will be housed and finished on whole crop and red clover silage. We have had an extra couple of outlets for our lambs/ hoggs this year through our local livestock agent Stephen Kirkup which is very positive. We’re investing in renewing approximately 4km of fencing soon. Theres only so long that a patch will work! The hens are doing well and very soon our second flock will hatch. We’ve just ordered some trees to replace those that didn’t make it on the ranges. I’m quite pleased with only 6% beating up required. It was mainly Goat Willow which died, which was initially puzzling as we’re such a wet farm, however we had a dry speĺl in early summer which obviously was dry enough to kill them. As we write this month’s piece, there is mountains of snow on the ground, temperature is about -8, visibility fair and its almost perfect conditions. We are skiing in Wengen, Switzerland and have just about forgotten what we have been doing at home! Our old shepherd could never understand the appeal of skiing. Why you would pay to go and spend a week in a snow drift was beyond him ! Getting to Wengen we took the train from Geneva, which gave us a good 3 hours travel and a farm spotting opportunity. It is clear to see the level of investment that goes into these Swiss farms, both big and small. The smaller, more traditional farms up in the uplands are still here, viable and clearly profitable. George Eustice highlighted the Swiss system as a possible example for us to follow post Brexit, let’s keep reminding him of this.

On Our Farm

February 6th 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. In addition we produce Agrimart, which is read by 8,000 farmers and agriculturally related businesses. The weeks seem to be flying by and I feel like my feet have hardly touched the ground. By the time you read this article, March will be fast approaching and thoughts will be turning to spring drilling. Whilst the snow is falling heavily outside the window as I write, it is hard to believe that we will be sowing anytime soon! I have attended lots of meetings recently ranging from whole farm benchmarking to agronomy and water quality. I have to admit that I find it hard getting off the farm to attend these meetings. I always feel that there are better things that I could be doing with my time. However, I think that they are always useful, if I can take at least one thing away from them and implement it at home. Currently I am applying to get the farm into an Agri Environment scheme. We have been members of various environmental schemes over the past 20 years which has seen over 7km of new hedges planted as well as ponds dug out, waterways fenced off and new woodland planted. I am very keen to continue this and I hope with the fantastic advice I am currently getting my application will be a success. On the farm Tony and I have been busy clipping cattle as well as starting the steading upgrade. We clipped 27 yesterday which are heading to Stoddarts on Wednesday. Most people probably think we are mad clipping cattle but with two of us we are getting through five an hour no problem. We have found that however much straw we use the Angus cattle always seem to get dirty. With straw prices where they currently are I believe we are better off clipping and using a little less straw. A new 20 foot shipping container arrived today which is to be our spray/parts store. It replaces a very old yellow GPO van body which has been on the farm as long as I can remember and really is on its last legs! In the coming week the container will be fitted out with a non-slip floor, bunded and racking installed. I hope that it will also ease the pressure on our very small workshop which is in desperate need of a tidy up. Every year as soon as the shooting season is over attention quickly turns towards the Six Nations. After Scotland’s amazing performances in the autumn I was quietly confident, excited and full of optimism as I sat down on Saturday afternoon. What a disaster. It was one of the worst Scottish performances I have ever seen. Even my three year old daughter said they were rubbish and swiftly fell asleep! Let’s hope a win over France can cheer us all up.

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.

February 2nd 2018

Colin Mitchell is farm manager at Meikleour Estate near Blairgowrie in Perthshire. The soils range from light sand and gravel to some heavy, wet, north facing clay loams with 400 acres of fertile silty sand. Cropping covers 2200 acres and includes winter wheat, barley, oats and oilseed rape, spring barley and oats, seed and ware potatoes, carrots and vining peas. Harvest ‘17 has restarted! A week ago (27/1/18) we started harvesting carrots from under straw. It is always best to wait for good conditions but the reality of the market is that often they have to be lifted in “suboptimal” conditions. However, so far this year it has gone very well without too much mud. Yields seem good, although most people are getting good results so a drop in price is anticipated. I’ve not received any packout figures back yet though so I can’t comment on actual figures. Removing straw from carrots Apart from harvesting carrots we have been busy with maintenance and outloading potatoes. We now have 80% of them moved, this means that we will miss out on any late season price rise (if it happens). But we know that our soil doesn’t produce potatoes that store for a long period so our business model is based around early movement. Meanwhile in the office I’ve been putting the final planning together for the coming season. All of the nitrogen requirements were ordered last June but I don’t order carrot or potato fertiliser until just before I need it, to avoid under or over ordering. Fendt power This does leave me open to price rises of P and K but at least the nitrogen was bought reasonably well. I’ve not ordered any agrochemicals since last October so it will be interesting to see what prices are going to be like this spring. The weaker exchange rate has helped grain prices but unfortunately it’s bound to have an affect on inputs as well. It probably means that even more shopping around and negotiation is required to keep costs down. Maybe I should buy that Donald Trumps “The art of the deal” after all! Ready for digging

Talking......... from the boundry

February 6th 2018

I am now in month two of the rest of my life and so far so good. I am not as busy as previously or feel quite so pressurised and yet I am kept fully occupied. It is great to be able to share the workload with someone of similar ambitions and views, nothing like having youth on your side. Hugo does all the day to day organising, I am kept in the background supposedly doing strategy. In fact there were quite a few days when I was to be found standing in a field with a weapon in hand enjoying the fruits of last year’s labour. Guy Lee On more than one occasion last month I was away at ‘meetings’ - the SAOS conference, various agronomy meetings, Board Meetings - Scottish Agronomy and BMR. It came to a head when the Farm Manager said “You are never here, I know I am supposed to run the place but I was expecting some sort of handover!” He is Mr 10%, his goal is to improve everything by that margin. I am definitely not going to stand in his way on that path. Our business is not the most straightforward - in the past month we have met with two suppliers from France of pheasant eggs and day old chicks, the specialist poultry vet who has a good look round and provides the yearly health plan, the fieldsman from Dovecote Park, our cattle nutrionist, as well as seed merchants and other sources of information. There is nothing like advertising to the world that one has retired, everyone I meet asks me how it is going. We are off to Rome next month to watch Scotland play Italy, not for the Wooden Spoon I hope but they will have to improve on the performance in Cardiff to avoid such a contest. We (that’s my rugby mad wife) and I have got tickets for Murrayfield on Sunday. So plenty of the oval ball to watch. And then there’s the little white ball to chase round. For the past 10 years, sixteen of us have gone to Trevose in Cornwall for 3 days in April. The team are mostly members of the Borderers who in our youth were cricketers of various abilities. We play five rounds, we never play with or against the same people more than once, a formula that the highly experienced accountant in our number could not work out until he realised that Speedway racing is made up of four members in each race who never race each other more than once. We have just come back form a weekend in London seeing our grandchildren. Last Friday we spent an hour in Fergus’s (aged 6) primary school talking to his class about farming and where their food originates from. They were very enthusiastic and energising and asked us a lot of interesting questions! At last we have received a completion certificate for the building put up in June 2014. It houses the two biomass boilers, a woodchip store and 100 tonne on floor grain drier. The council made us jump through the hoops to ensure that internally the building has one hour fire protection should the worst happen. Although the fuel source is wood the heat for the drier is water which fortunately is not very combustible. That was one of the poisoned chalices I placed on the farm managers desk at the beginning of the year. Delivery within a month was impressive. There are more to come!! 50

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.

Talking......... from Lincolnshire

February 5th 2018

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. When the skies are leaden, the shooting season is coming to a close and everything looks just a little soggy I always like to make plans for the coming season. These plans generally revolve around cropping, establishment and how I can form a farming system which does not include oilseed rape or having to consign myself to drilling wheat in November for the rest of my career. In the height of my battle against blackgrass, sorry it gets a mention in every article; some fields only grew a cash crop for 16 months in a 48 month period. If this was a factory or hotel I would now be bankrupt and resorting to selling various Hopefully the Past: parts of my body in order to keep my parents in the manner to which they have become accustomed. results of overAs it is, the kind people of the EU have helped me out of a hole of my own and the previous tenant’s making. Now, I feel The cultivation something slightly radical needs to happen. I understand Atlantis etc still work in Scotland, but those chemicals were nothing more than a mere sticking plaster shielding us from our own managerial shortcomings and probably greed. In fact the last time I used Atlantis I believe it cost me £1000 per dead blackgrass plant and even I can do the maths on that! So like a recent Ag graduate intoxicated with the knowledge bestowed on them by their kindly tutors I started building spreadsheets, and they kept flowing. They were all based on the premise of integrating livestock back onto the farm affording a more balance rotation, whilst remaining an “arable” farmer. This is a very important distinction in retaining the kudos of the local wealthy landed gentry (my friends). Hopefully the Future: I know about cattle from a former life, have no current grazing infrastructure and cereal rye seems popular locally now Black Oat and Mustard so how about intensive beef in a big shed? The enterprise would need to be big enough to support a workers wage so Cover crop sown at the resulting capital investment is huge, all at a time when the UK beef industry could be sold down the river for us 30kg/ha on the 1st October. delivering blue chip to the South Americans. No thanks. So how about grazing cattle? With electric fences, water bowsers, heavy clay and being on the flightpath of RAF Conningsby, not to mention the hassles of rounding up beasts for TB testing the financial gains were not worth the loss of hair. Not to be deterred I moved swiftly onto grazing sheep. Now this works better as a system. I can grow some temporary leys and then the sheep can feed on my overwinter cover crops crushing the slug eggs as they go. The spreadsheet said if I turned the farm white I could make some proper money. Cue a quick call to my local shepherd with whom I would like to have entered into a Joint Venture. Well talking about p*****g on my parade! Allegedly I wanted to do too many, too fast and had hugely underestimated the amount of winter keep required. The addition of a winter tack cost again reduced the profit to close to zero and explains the lack of Range Rover driving shepherds in the locality! Despite this setback, I am still giving credence to a scaled down trial with some grazing ewe lambs just to see if the system could be made to work on a larger scale in case in future we are paid to have ground cover all year. Who knows in time one of my children could become the first hybrid arable-sheep farmer to drive a Range Rover!

TRACTORS WANTED

February 4th 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. The golden weather has returned. Despite heavy rains at the beginning of January the sun came out for the last 2 weeks of the month and with temperatures peaking close to 40 degrees, to date harvest has been easy. A progress report on harvest would say that the peas have been disappointing, the grass seed has been good and the wheat may be averaging about 11t/ha. The clover, barley, radish and broccoli have yet to be harvested. The gorgeous weather has brought problems to other parts of NZ. The traditionally wetter areas (Western and Southern regions) have been suffering from an unprecedented dry patch and most of these areas have been declared as drought regions. Ironically as soon as the Minister of Ag arrives in a region and declares it in drought, it rains; and some of the rains have come in biblical quantities. 700 tourists were trapped in their cars on a remote part of the SI West coast as landslides and washouts destroyed the only roads in and out of the Coast. We have been able to take some advantage of the dry by buying 2000 lambs from down south at a discount on an otherwise buoyant market of about $15/head. They have had rain down there now and so the supply of lambs has stopped. The hairy androgynous anti farming mob have used the warm weather to attack farmers again; this time for making our animals stand out in the sun. It seems to have escaped them that most of the really large cattle herds in the world are in places like Brazil, the Ozzy Top End, and the hotter drier parts of the US where temperatures regularly exceed 40°C and the cattle appear to thrive. On the dairy farm we adjusted our feeding regime to allow the cows more tucker over-night and less during the day to accommodate the cows adjusting their own feeding habits of eating more when it is cooler and siesta during the hotter parts of the day. Milk production has been pretty good; only taking a short hit when we had a brief cold snap. I’m now adjusting my own habits to accommodate the warmer weather. The swimming pool is 29°C and the fridge still works. If this is global warming, it looks pretty good to me! Baling the ryegrass straw
