Land-based Pre-Apprenticeship BMR can now offer 5 placements for the Scheme in 2019 in South East Scotland We are keen to hear from any land based business who would be interested in providing a 6 month work placement from July 2019. Farmer mentors play a crucial but rewarding role on the placement with a huge responsibility not only providing the young person with practical knowledge but providing an environment to encourage a good work ethic as well as social and communication skills. “It’s a programme that warrants support as we need to do our bit to develop the skills of the next generation. As mentors our role is to primarily provide a safe working environment, guidance and knowledge transfer. I would recommend the scheme to fellow farmers, it’s good having a structured training programme for staff coming through the business. It has provided us with some challenges, stimulated discussion and made us question ‘why we do what we do’.” Testimonial from previous Mentor, Roger Polson (2016)

For more information on becoming involved in this exciting scheme please contact the BMR office on 01896 758091

DON’T CRY FOR ME FROM ARGENTINA

February 2019 Wendy writes He may be out of sight and on the other side of the world but sadly he is not out of mind. He still pesters me from 7000 miles away. Leave me alone, I can manage, the young man is doing really well and to be honest, life’s a holiday without you here. I did go and do one pull before he left for Argentina, we went to Penicuik to pull a hen house for Mr David Stoddart. Despite my new cable this was not easy, there was snow on the ground and I had to park on a slope. As the tension increased I could not help myself and my front end slid down the hill on the snow. Eventually with very short pulls I managed to get the shed away from the muck and I could then move to level ground for the final move which was over 80 yards. After that little adventure he left, we all breathed a sigh of relief and I was in the very capable hands of the young man. First thing he did was to clean all my glass, it didn’t take him long but what a difference. I can see We will provide the complete clearly for the first time in service for all your steel framed ages and so can he. We went building requirements up to Gosford Estate near • Straw Sheds • Stable Blocks Aberlady twice last week • Riding Arenas • Muck Middens and what a joy. We purred • Grain Stores • Silage pits a long although I didn’t • Stock Buildings • Building Works want him getting too cocky • Planning Applications • Building Warrants and was a little bit naughty in Lauder preventing him Call now for a from changing gear when free and competitive he wanted. Otherwise, we quote had a great journey. I pulled He sent me this photo asking if two sheds off the muck I would like to pull this iceberg.

Talking........Livestock

February 11th 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. So near, yet so far! That basically sums up how the TB testing and classifying went. First of all the testing was going well, spotless in fact, until near the end there was a 9 year old cow who had a big bottom lump, so that was it, back to square one. Thankfully there was only the one, but unfortunately means that there is a lovely batch of potential suckler heifers which will now have to be finished as beef. Whereas classifying went exceptionally well, with the herd average points increasing steadily. The first classifier wanted to make No45 Ex96 but the second classifier wanted her left at Ex95. I am still happy enough but of course the next week she developed E.coli mastitis. Thankfully she seemed to pull out of unscathed but that was after milking her out every few hours. Treatment is becoming increasingly difficult as some of the antibiotics are being taken off the market and the drugs that are still available are under strict Red Tractor laws. For example, whenever mastitis turns up a sample needs to be taken to the vets to get a sensitivity test done to identify the drug to successfully treat the problem. The key to this process will be the speed of the sensitivity test. The update on the new calf meal is that intakes are definitely up and there is a great shine on them. The main plus is that the calves wean easily with very little roaring thus reducing stress. Some parts of calf PRECISION SPREADING SPECIALIST rearing remain challenging but I am continuing to batch them up Auto Rate Control, Weigher and GPS differently and at different ages to try and improve growth rates. Poultry Manure, Digestate, Compost, Limex, FYM etc. With milk price under a little pressure and costs up by 4ppl, margins have tightened. So with this in mind I hope the home All products can be supplied grown barley will carry us through to grazing time.

Talking.........from South America

February 11th 2019

SALTA, ARGENTINA. We have been in Argentina for a week now. The weather has been hot, the beer cold, the beef excellent and the wine very good. The first two days were spent in Buenos Aires, a very cosmopolitan city with many interesting features. From there we flew to Bariloche - the Lake District - where we stayed on Guy Lee an estancia (www.peuma-hue.com) purely developed for ecotourism. A stunning location on the end of Lake Gutierrez surrounded by mountains, riding, kayaking and a 12km trek across the highest ridge The farmhouse... ... and the view kept us fit and from which my muscles are only just recovering! The last two days have been in Southern Patagonia where we visited the glaciers spending all day on a boat on Lake Argentina sailing right up to them. The most well known is Perito Moreno which unusually in today’s world of climate change is stable and moving at 2 metres/day. When it hits land on the other side of a narrow channel it creates a dam blocking the flow of water out of Lake Rico. A dam was formed in 1988 which was not broken until 2004 by which time the water in Rico had risen by 19 metres. The pressure on the Rico side eventually proves too great and the dam collapses with dramatic effects. We landed on an old estancia which had been settled for rearing sheep and cattle. It is an incredibly beautiful but remote location only accessible by boat. When the Los Glaciares National Park was created in 1937 the farmers were relocated, they took their sheep with them but left the cattle which, at the time, were not considered worth moving. They presumed they would not survive the harsh winter but they did and there are now over 5000 feral cattle which are causing overgrazing and preventing the establishment of natural fauna, a key aim of the Park. Four gauchos are Where gaucho lives now now temporarily resident there and their task is to catch, domesticate and remove them. To date 250 have been caught - a long way to go in a vast inhospitable area! MOTOR ENGINEER One thing I did not expect to see was a whole page advertisement in a national newspaper Tel: 07506 516381 or 01890 830243 (home) promoting a vegan lifestyle. For a country Specialising in servicing and repairs to Range Rover, Discovery, Land Rover and other 4 x 4 vehicles. that has one of the highest consumptions of COLLECTION AND DELIVERY SERVICE beef, this was a surprise.

On Our Farm

February 13th 2019 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, 6000 organic hens produce eggs for Waitrose, 14,000 organic point of lay pullets reared each year and 60,000 pheasant poults are raised. I really thought I was getting to grips with Wendy, after eight hours in the saddle I was beginning to feel pretty confident. Then a call came in from a digger driver stuck in a bog at the Fans. I met the driver down a steep forest track and he showed me the site. The digger was being used to clear trees out of a ditch and had sunk right up to its cab. Access to the digger was not going to be easy and it would require Wendy to tiptoe around the edge of a large bog on a very narrow strip of dry land. There was one part which was going to be very tight for Wendy to get through. Having come so far and feeling sorry for the digger driver and his son, I put Wendy into six wheel drive and sped along the bank when disaster struck. As I was trying to traverse the narrowest point Wendy’s back wheels slipped off into the bog - she was well and truly stuck! I jumped out of the cab and promptly sunk right up to my waist! What was I going to do? How was I ever going to get her out? Thankfully Richard Watkins (one of Wendy’s harvest regulars) appeared on the scene and offered to assist. Firstly, as is protocol when Wendy is at work, he insisted on a picture much to Wendy and my embarrassment. Richard then went off to find help and amazingly he manged to flag down a 400hp Fendt on the road which was just enough of an anchor for Wendy to pull herself out. I will never be trying that again! Our AECS letter allowing us to start work finally came through a couple of weeks ago. We have been very busy since then removing old fences and clearing a dead hedge line. By the end of the month I hope that we will have finished planting 1.7km of new hedges and by the end of March we will have completed 4km of fencing. There is clearly plenty to get on with. For the first time ever at Sandystones we now have three hen houses in full production which is fantastic. It is a great sight going into the egg room to see three full pallets of eggs ready for collection. The cattle are continuing to perform well with some very pleasing growth rates and kill out percentages. The latest batch of cattle which went to Dovecote at the start of the month are one of the best groups of cattle we have ever sent which is great. As soon as shooting finishes thoughts quickly turn to the new rearing season. John has been busy washing and disinfecting all the rearing sheds and equipment and moving them onto a new site. Meanwhile, Tony has been busy repairing some of the sections damaged during storm Ali last This will never pull it out! September. There always seems to be plenty of things to do at Sandystones! Finally to all the farmers in Queensland, Australia who have lost over 500,000 cattle in the recent devastating floods. You are in all our thoughts and prayers at this horrendously difficult time. Nature can be so, so cruel.

Talking........from Lincolnshire

February 11th 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. Endless days sat in the office working out COP figures can get a bit tedious when you have an attention span as short as mine, although I must admit it has been more gratifying than expected. Something the spreadsheet has highlighted is that I could be making my asset work harder, so with a spring in my step I was on the phone to the local drainage contractor. I always do the sums between buying more land or re-draining the existing acreage and the re-draining always appears to offer a better return; especially when some of the fields were last drained 65 years ago. With the settled and dry weather in January I am sure I was not alone in being tempted to get the first dose of Nitrogen out. With fertiliser spreaders out and about in the locality the urge gets that much stronger. No sooner than I was convincing myself that everyone else was right They are running again and I was wrong the January drought was broken with a torrential 7mm of rain. The following morning the land drains were running again and I could clearly see what would have happened to my nice expensive nitrogen. Traditionally the field drains run here when the soil has reached its water holding capacity, but not this year with the soil still relatively dry at depth. Back earlier in the summer I was advised to fill the cracks in the soil with “aggregates” of soil through a light surface cultivation. This appears to have worked well in creating drainage channels, possibly a little too well when 7mm can get the drains running in such a manner. It is amazing how quickly the land can go from bone dry on the surface to an unholy mess. Every Sunday I drive round the county watching my son representing the Sleaford U10 rugby team. In the driving rain yesterday we went to Newark in the shadows of the sugar beet factory for a David vs Goliath fixture. They have 3 teams for this age group with three reserves per team, and we can just about cobble together 7-9 players. That their clubhouse has been built on stilts gives some idea to the prevailing local conditions; and then we saw the pitch. This was not a day for running rugby, Sleaford are still very much firm believers in the “bees around a honey pot” defensive system anyway, but this was awful. The fact that two of our players came off after 3 matches looking as clean as when they went on does suggest they were not wholly involved in proceedings. We were still picking mud out Not exactly Twickenham... of Freddie’s ear canal 6 hours later. 44

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

February 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. Some important dates for your diaries 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 they have until the transfer deadline. For Basic Payment entitlements this year is 2nd April 2019 to purchase or dispose of the entitlements. 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 2019 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. The Department has confirmed that, although the 30% siphon will be applied to the BPS element of any entitlements transferred without land and confirmation letters will show this reduction however, before the 2019 claims are processed all entitlements for each region will be converted to the appropriate Flat Rate, so in effect the siphon will be cancelled. Agri-Environment Climate Scheme The 2019 Agri-Environment Climate Scheme application round opened in January, and the deadline for applications has been set for Friday 12th April 2019. 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 and can help improve marginal areas and farm’s amenity, whilst offering environmental benefits from land management options and capital investment to meet national priorities. These SRDP schemes are subject to a finite budget and a competitive scoring process. Last year’s pass mark of 18 points was a testing points level to achieve and applications need to be carefully planned out and take time to assemble, especially if they require consultation and endorsements from Scottish Natural Heritage, SEPA or other bodies. Five-year management contracts are likely to be awarded in 2020 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. 46

Concrete the way you want it! mechanical engineers

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 Mecmar M3 to finish the job. Mobile & Static Driers Individually

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. Ho hum, another quiet month on the fieldwork front! As of today (10/2/19) we had made a start to ploughing in cover crops but frozen ground stopped play 2 weeks ago, and we can’t start spreading nitrogen until the middle of February so the wheels haven’t been turning. Fortunately this has given us plenty of time to carry on with preventative maintenance. The biggest recipient of TLC this winter has been the Chafer sprayer with it getting a good overhaul. This included removing the booms and replacing or repairing many parts. It is largely finished now, and hasn’t been too costly on parts, but has been one of those jobs where you don’t know what you’re going to need until you strip everything down. Luckily the manufacturer has an excellent parts department which allowed us to source the many and varied parts in a timely manner. The sprayer has only done 6 seasons of work, albeit covering all the liquid N and spraying needs, but was showing quite a bit of wear when it was stripped down. This is mostly down to the amount of folding that it has to do. In the carrots and potatoes, if we are not planting headlands we tend to only leave a 12 metre strip. Now it’s obvious that with a 36m sprayer something has to give! Therefore the hinges on the boom get quite a good workout so it wasn’t surprising that there had been so much wear. In some ways it would be sensible to move back to a 24 metre self propelled sprayer, which would speed up headland operations. However, I feel that having fewer tramlines, especially in the root crops, along with the utility of the extra tractor, is worth the extra hassle. Although I don’t have any financial figures to back this up! Obviously yet another example of farmernomics! The other machine showing wear was the Lemken Karat cultivator. This has a number of pivots for the break back mechanism on the tines, luckily these are all pivoted on a combination of plastic and steel bushes. Unluckily all the bolts holding everything in place were seized into the bushes, these required a combination of heat, a bit of bad language and application of a BFH to remove them. “Unfortunately” I was busy elsewhere while this job was underway South Road – Belford so I couldn’t even offer the guys support from the sidelines. (01668) 213 433 Otherwise it has been a month of out loading potatoes. Packouts of the various varieties are holding up well, and as everyone knows Suppliers of Quality Assured the price is helping the whole job. What this means for the coming READY MIXED CONCRETE season is anyone’s guess. There has been a bit of shuffling going on Steven Birdsall (01668) 213 733 Mobile: 07970 112761 in the packing trade which is a little bit unsettling, although the same amount of potatoes will still be required so as ever the weather will GILBERT BIRDSALL be the biggest factor. Farmers being farmers, will we be able to resist BUILDING & CIVIL ENGINEERING planting those extra acres which always pop up, or will we see sense Suppliers of Quarry Materials, JCB Hire, Drives, Agricultural Buildings, etc. and grow just enough for the trade? Maybe by the next time we will Tel: Belford (01668) 213433 be in the fields and doing some proper farming.

February 12th 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. At the end of January I was fortunate to go on a five day trip to the Czech Republic. This was our annual reunion of the 2017 Challenge of Rural Leadership course that I was part of. One of our team was from Czech and he organized a fascinating trip which included visiting Prague, looking at its amazing architecture, learning about its history as well as visiting farms; dairy, arable and biogas. Luckily the trip also included a trip to the Budvar brewery, the original Budweiser. Unbelievably we were also allowed to visit a nuclear power station. Security checks were very tight and we were checked for radiation levels on arrival and departure. However, the highlight of the trip was visiting the Spearhead International farms in the Czech Republic. Farming over 66,000 acres in this country, producing grains and oilseeds, potatoes and veg, sugar beet, milk, livestock and biogas. I have heard that the Austrians are extreme Germans, however the Czechs, in my eyes, are extreme Austrians. The farms we saw were at the top of their game, precision farming; variable seed rates, P&K, lime, nitrogen and controlled traffic farming. All cultivators, drills and combine headers were 9m and therefore sprayers were 27m. Lean management was used across the farms, with all shovels, brushes, calculators, spectacles etc. all in their given space with individual responsibilities across all buildings, meaning the farms were immaculate. The 17 of us were very lucky to have had the opportunity to be welcomed into the local community on our brief trip. I spent my birthday at the Budvar Brewery for a tour and evening meal followed by the “Fireman’s Ball” which is traditional across the Czech Republic. A birthday I will not forget. I have tried hard to convince Claire that it was a business trip and very much work minded however, I’m struggling to be convincing. She is also not taking too kindly to my suggestion of lean management in the kitchen! For us who were involved in the 21st Challenge of Rural Leadership, run by the Worshipful Company of Farmers and the Duchy College our incredible experience in 2017 continues to deliver. The new layers house is coming along at speed. We have been incredibly lucky with the weather. The roof is on, exterior cladding complete and concrete poured. Electricians are in wiring lights and starting to run the cabling in. Next week the system should start to be built. Feeding stock this winter has been an expensive challenge due to a shortage of forage. This summer will be all about rebuilding stocks for the winter of 2019/2020 whilst hopefully also mending the ewes and starting the process of re-building cow numbers. We scanned the ewes this week, and although the percentage is down on last years, it is somewhat understandable given the previous 12 months. I, like many others, will be praying for an early and kind spring. As March 29th draws ever closer the negotiations are getting more 4 x Complete pan feed lines and more intense. All the sound bites of the last two years will go Fully automated 12v system down in the history books: “No deal, hard border, backstop, will of the people.” It’s clear we are right in the middle of something Pan capacity for 4320 laying hens that will no doubt be taught in history and economic lessons in Call 07759 530013 years to come.

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. As the proprietor of the pigs and peripheral businesses I can’t report in detail on how the harvest is going, other than the weather is stunning and the fire risk has gone off the scale. I do know the harvest crews have been working very long hours and have cleaned up the early wheat, the peas and most of the grass seed. Yields have been average to poor. The wheat is running at about 10t/ha which reflects the effect of all the rain we had in November; the early grass seed has been disappointing. However, the boys have said that the later flowering grasses have yielded quite well; the peas were terrible. Barley around the district is pretty awful with yields of only 6-7t/ha common. The best barley crop the boys have harvested so far was grown by a very conservative farmer who plants his barley and ignores it until harvest. His crop yielded 8.5t/ha. That has left those who have thrown everything at their own crops scratching their heads. Store lamb prices are ranging from $105 for wee rats up to $150 for better lambs. An on-farm lamb sale up country from here made $171 for their best lambs. Sheep farmers are wandering around in a bit of a daze at their good fortune. I’m told Maseratis are becoming quite common in the foothills. There is no sign yet that the hot dry conditions are tempering lamb buyers enthusiasm but we live in hope. Watching harvest Despite this really hot weather the cows are still pumping milk. Production is running at nearly 20% up on last year and the international milk price is firming which is exciting. I talked to a Fonterra director tonight and he assures me that things are on the improve at the cooperative and that we may get paid for our milk which is really exciting. Last year we (the collective we) were accused of cruelty to our cows because of the hot weather. Production was affected then but despite similar temperatures this year, milk production has not suffered. Our herd manager thinks that the flies, that accompanied the hot weather last year but have not been around so far this year, are the difference. The critics of the industry have this year moved onto blaming farmers for killing all the bird life and have clearly stopped worrying about our cows. This is good news because when over-night guests complain about our deafening dawn chorus I can point out that our urban experts say that there aren’t any birds so they must be imagining things. Robert and Julia Bruce, Sandystones’ neighbours, are coming to stay this weekend. I shall be interested in their reaction to this news.

All BPS entitlements must be used in the same year at least once every two years. Those with surplus entitlements may be at risk of losing some to the National Reserve in 2019. BPS entitlements can be sold, leased or gifted. Do you have surplus entitlements you could sell instead of losing them? Do you need any more entitlements to maximise your claim? Did you miss out on an allocation of entitlements and need to acquire them to help your business? Opportunity for claimants of Region 2 and 3 land to top up their allocations as only 90% of their eligible land was allocated entitlements. • Tight deadline. Transfers of entitlements must to be notified by 2nd April 2019. • We have clients who require entitlements and also have entitlements to dispose of. • If you have any Basic Payment Scheme issues, we can help.

Preparation of tenancy and contract agreements.

Whilst 2nd April 2019 may still feel a long way away, experience has shown that preparation is key.

All mammals need salt. Sodium controls blood's PH, chloride helps proper digestion & keeps blood acid levels in balance. Livestock need salt every day of the year. It’s in our blood, sweat and tears. It’s the electrolytes of life.

Farmers have become, not that they haven’t always been, the most valuable profession on earth, it is now left to them to heal our soils.
