1,000-10,000 Tonnes (1-6 sheds) 998kW Heatpump

What is a Heatpump Heat / Chill system? A Heatpump Heat / Chill system uses Heat naturally occurring in the ground, the Heat is increased with a 350% efficient Heatpump to the required Heating output whilst deriving the 20 year Government RHI tariff. This Heating can be used for workshop Heating and to pre-Heat the grain drier. The byproduct of the Heating cycle is Chilled water, this can be used to Chill the grain to anywhere between 10°c below ambient for storage.

W L Douglas & Son are based near Berwick-uponTweed in North Northumberland. This business has seen rapid growth in the last several years resulting in a grain drying requirement of some 25,000 tonnes. Partner Ian Douglas approached the Calibrate Energy Engineering team to look at ways they could speed up and streamline their Grain Drying and Cooling process. It was agreed that Calibrate’s 1mW Heatpump Heat/Chill system seemed like the perfect fit for their 40t/hr Continuous Grain Drying system. The Results The first site of its kind in the UK to have a simultaneous Heating and Chilling system. • A 4-5 year payback on the 20 year scheme. • At least 50% oil reduction, with no burners required for Oilseed Rape drying. • 45-50°c at 400% Heating efficiency. • 1°c at 325% Chilling efficiency. • Total energy efficiency of 725%.

This system is OFGEM approved at the highest possible tariff of

9.55p per kW hr.

A bespoke Control System remotely manages this system enabling The Douglas’s to have a ‘hands off’ approach as well as enabling real time tariff generation and power consumption readings.

Talking........Livestock

April 8th 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. As the Grand National is now over I’m sure there are those who are happy with how it went and those who are sorely disappointed. There is an amazing amount of deep, skilled and lifelong breeding which has went into turning out such great athletic horses and indeed the jockeys also undergo very strict lifestyles and diets. Unfortunately there is the gambling side to it which for many, especially those who loose, can be a big downside to such a lucrative industry. Lets hope that there have been no new addicts as it can lead to the failure of many people and businesses. Having said that, farming is a continuous gamble and I have been reminded of that this past week as calving has basically been completed. On reflection, I have found myself dwelling on the losses during calving and sometimes it was because we intervened too early and occasionally when we intervened a little late. It is hard to correlate how to learn from this as it can be hard to win, but generally speaking as long as the cow or calf isn’t abused we have to continue to try our best to minimise losses and accept what losses there are. Pelvic area and mineral status of cows and heifers still remain the two challenging areas. Another gamble is when best to apply slurry and fertiliser. Again, there is a window to get it on so we spread slurry with the umbilical when field entrances are sticky and go to arable work in the better conditions. This spreads the work load but automatically hedges the bets as extreme swings in weather could damage the slurry and fertiliser investments. So far this year we are just about on target and with growing conditions a little slow it is allowing us to get nearer completion without dirtying grass. The last TB test left its frustrations as it claimed a suckler first calver and on one hand thankfully there was only the one. It is confusing as she was spotless at the last test and just by chance she and her calf were on their own since so it will be interesting to see how she cultures at the abattoir. TB on a whole is continuing to cause cash flow problems on farm adding to everyday stress. Indeed we weighed two batches of cattle prior to testing, all of which had been putting on weight, feeding remained the same and at the next weighing which was after the test showed no increase in weight. I know we didn’t stress them so what did the injection do to them? I know it’s not scientific but it still begs an answer. This next month will be busy but will hopefully set the pace for the rest of the growing/harvesting season. 32

On Our Farm

April 9th 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. I love springtime on the farm as the days get longer, the nights warmer and everything starts coming to life. The countryside is a hive of activity with new born lambs running around the fields, calving in full swing and the smell of freshly cut lawns filling the air. All the crops have come through the winter well. The early dose of nitrogen we put on the winter barley has done a good job of keeping the crop green. The barley T0 on winter barley and winter oats got their T0 last week and all crops have had their second round of nitrogen. The spring barley was drilled into lovely seedbeds last weekend and was rolled the following day. We have had 32mm of rain since drilling and I am slightly concerned the fields may be a little capped. We had more intense rain than was originally forecast and in hindsight the fields should have probably been left unrolled. Unfortunately one of the rape fields has suffered quite badly from winter stem weevil larvae damage. Interestingly this field was min tilled and did not suffer from any flea beetle issues in the autumn. Whereas the ploughed field was hammered by flea beetle and as a result I reluctantly sprayed it with an insecticide. This did a great job on the flea beetle and it seems, as an added bonus, prevented any winter stem weevil larvae damage. It will not be until the combine goes through that we will be able to fully assess the impact on yield. The construction of the game farm is coming along well. We move to a new field every year to avoid any build-up of disease. All the equipment is taken down thoroughly washed and disinfected before being moved onto a new site. Our first partridge chicks arrive next week. It feels like the shooting season only ended yesterday! The first load of steers were turned out yesterday and we will continue turning some more out over the next few days as the grass growth picks up. We have been busy buying cattle recently and the effects of a kind winter can be clearly seen in the increased weight of cattle this year. Over the last month we have had three school visits from local primary We will provide the complete schools. I really enjoy showing them around the farm and love some service for all your steel framed of the questions they ask. Hopefully they all went home with a slightly building requirements better knowledge of where their food comes from. A special thanks to • Straw Sheds • Stable Blocks my Mum and Jess who run the visits, alongside RHET. • Riding Arenas • Muck Middens We welcomed some new visitors • Grain Stores • Silage pits to the farm last week in the form • Stock Buildings • Building Works of twenty five bee hives.

CLEARWINNER AMAC MP POWER PLUS An Agri - Gas Oil fuel treatment designed for application to all agricultural, plant , forestry & construction machinery Treatment Rate 1L to 1500L 

POWER PLUS : designed to boost engine power output and improve engine performance.

Reduces fuel consumption.

Improves cold weather starting.

Protects & cleans fuel systems and injectors ensuring optimum fuel atomisation.

Stabilises diesel fuel held in long term storage (seasonal machinery such as combine harvesters)

Adds “lubricity” to diesel fuel, preventing excess wear on fuel pumps & injectors.

Counteracts manifestation of “Diesel Bug” in storage tanks.

TESTIMONIAL. “We started applying Clearwinner AMAC MP POWER PLUS to our fuel 3 years ago and now use it everytime we have a fresh delivery. We felt that some enhancement was needed to the diesel fuel supplied because our tractors and other associated vehicles were simply not performing to their optimum level. The engines sounded a bit “under par” which we put down to the effect of a general reduction in diesel fuel quality. Since using Clearwinner AMAC MP POWER PLUS we have seen a marked improvement in the overall performance of our equipment and the engines sound a great deal better! We would recommend that all operators of agricultural machinery seriously consider using this product.” Colin McGregor, McGregor Farms Agriparts Borders Ltd. Spylaw Road, Kelso.

April 8th 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. In the desperate search to find a break crop to broaden my rotation, I think I have stumbled across a winner. The spring oats which were planted only a month ago look fantastic and with very little current weed pressure the omens are good. Nothing will ever quite compete with the warm fuzzy feeling you get when the cart drivers are thrashing around trying in vain to keep up with the combine in a good wheat crop, but the oats are running it a close second. I am assured they will be a pig to combine and even worse to sell but at the moment my face still lights up when I see them. Having decided to delay spring bean drilling until soil temperatures improved in the hope of not putting on a pre-emergent spray, I was mildly concerned that I might regret not getting planted up 4 weeks earlier. Well conditions were superb, with day time temperatures approaching 20 degrees and a moderate breeze allowing me to get the drilling done and turn straight round a roll it all. The end of March always seems to bring a clash between spring drilling and my daughter’s birthday. Having nipped home for a birthday tea I thought I would share the following email with you which is addressed to Nicki, my wife’s Commercial Kitchen Manager: “Dear Nicki, I have a request which far outranks any efficiency stats or food cost plans you might be busy with. It is to do with one of life’s great pleasures... cake. As it was Poppy’s birthday Vicky decided to bake a cake, like all doting mothers would I am sure. Generally if a cake goes wrong you could use it as a door stop, but this cake was so heavy you could anchor super-tankers off the coast of Shetland with it, and the rubbery consistency would have made even Ann Summers blush. We have spent a King’s ransom on a new cooker in the hope that this would help, but alas no and I am now worried that my children are going to go through life thinking that this is what cake should be like, and Canyon spring oats drilled therefore depriving them of one of life’s great pleasures. 02/03/19 I was therefore hoping that you might help my darling wife with her next foray into home baking with some very precise tuition, or failing that perhaps you could find the time, naturally during work hours, to bake birthday cakes for us. Just for reference dates for your diary are: 28th March Poppy’s birthday 10th May Freddie’s birthday 20th November Will’s birthday 25th December Jesus’s birthday” The good news I am still married and Nicki still has her job, but the future of cake still looks a little Drilling spring beans in perfect conditions uncertain in our house… 42

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

Talking.........Organic

April 9th 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. These last few weeks should have been the calm before the storm, what with calving starting early April and Lambing starting April 18th, however we have been flat out finishing the new layers building which will house flocks 5, 6, 7 and 8. Yesterday was commissioning day, checking that all the system was running correctly and all the electrics wired properly. We have a Big Dutchman control system which from one panel controls the lights, water, feed, ventilation and temperature. There are many poultry buildings across the UK which use this system, however this is the first one to have 4 control systems in one panel all talking to one another. A big thank you to Big Dutchman and Richmond Systems for pulling off a first. Hopefully the crash course in how to run it will come flooding back to us once we have to set it up when the birds arrive. Birds arrive in 10 days so there is quite a bit to do beforehand. James McEwan is finishing off the landscaping and final pieces of concreting. Haywood Contracting are in doing a grand job of erecting the poultry fences which will be followed by Jeremy Bolam planting over 2000 trees and shrubs across the ranges. Andy Bell has the task of ensuring the water connection goes to plan. Cameras are in, music system in place. Disinfecting takes place in two days. Cows are starting to calve and so far that is going smoothly. Blood tests prior to calving show that the energy and protein are bang on but the mineral levels are on the low side, so hopefully the mineral bolus given prior to calving along with their scour vaccine will address this. What a difference a year makes! Ewes have been turned into their lambing fields and the relief to be putting them onto good covers which will hopefully enable the lambs to have a good start. The last of the hoggs are away this week. We have managed to finish all the 2018 lambs off grass and brassica/forage crops which has been great. Hopefully muck spreaders will arrive this week to cover ground for spring crops and chicken muck onto silage ground. With a new shed comes the inevitable inspections. Defra next week to check the measurements of the building, closely followed by the RSPCA Assured who will look closely at the welfare and environment for the birds. Lion Code audit covers all the above as well as checking the building for salmonella and finally to top it all off the annual organic inspection for the whole farm.

April 8th 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. After a warm and dry March, winter suddenly feels very close. We’ve had early frosts and the snow on Mt Hutt looks skiable. I’ve had to pick my capsicums, put on socks and find my woolly singlet: all far too early. The boys are getting the last of the grasseed crops drilled and will then move onto drilling wheat. They have bought 4500 lambs and thanks to the dry spell the store price eased about $10/head which will help margins at the other end. We are slightly nervous as to what will happen to the lamb market once the English eventually decide on a Brexit strategy; but no-one (least of all the English) seems to know what is going to happen or when or if. I now feel some sympathy for the Scottish secessionists. Milk production was great through March, with heaps of high quality Winter has come early grass to feed the cows. We recently pregnancy tested the cows and only have 11% empty cows (regional industry average is 16%). This gives Big Jase a bit more scope to cull the late calvers and poor performers. The winter feed crops at the winter resort are looking ok and with a continued slight firming of the international milk price it looks like it might end up a pretty good year for the dairy farm. The Boss and I have been busy tidying up the “White House” (a wee cottage on our back lane) with the intention of renting it to tourists. We are aiming for a slightly up market rural retreat type experience which might appeal to those flying in or out of Christchurch airport or as an escape Happy lambs from the city; with good food, fresh air, bicycles and easy access to skiing and fishing. I think we’ll need Blondie to help us with an elaborate marketing campaign to sell the concept. I’ve also been trying to find some tile drains that are not working anymore. They’ve either silted up or some may have collapsed. I last had to dig these drains up some 30 years ago and my memory of where they are is a bit hazy. Old Sam, a lovely Irishman who worked for my grandfather and father for many years, gave me a map of all the tile drains on the farm. He advised to me to keep the map safely as it was the most valuable thing he could ever give me; that and the advice to ensure my prospective wife should have all her teeth removed before I married her. I failed miserably with the latter but thought I’d carefully done the former. I just can’t find it! I should mention the atrocity in Christchurch. We (personally and collectively) have been really touched by the many messages of shock and sympathy from our friends all around the world. As many of you have said Christchurch is one of the last places in the world this should have happened and is of course why the maniac chose it. A couple of unarmed real life heroic country cops who rushed into town to help, rammed the maniac’s car and dragged him out and wrestled him to the ground to affect his arrest. A wee glimmer of light in a very dark hole! 46

Talking.........Business with Bell Rural Solutions

April 2019

Michael Bell is Managing Director of Bell Rural Solutions, based in their office in Earlston. Michael provides professional advice to clients on a variety of issues throughout Scotland and Northern England, is a Member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, a RICS Registered Valuer and Agent for the AMC. The last time I wrote an Agrimart article earlier in the year, I wrote about change sparking opportunity and with Brexit on the horizon I quite expected us to be dealing with the consequences of whatever deal had been reached by our government, but instead we continue to be in a state of limbo which I expect will still be the case by the time this article is published and for some considerable time to come. In my opinion this state of uncertainty is a significant factor affecting peoples decision making process. From my personal experience there still seems to be significant demand for farms and land both to purchase and rent, although I suspect that the majority of any such deals are currently being conducted privately rather than hitting the open market. Following on from Fergus Thomson’s article last month regarding the Private Residential Rented Sector, the Scottish Government has announced that minimum energy efficiency standards will be introduced from April 2020 with the intention to improve conditions for tenants, tackle fuel poverty and reduce carbon emissions. The current key dates and requirements are as follows: From 1st April 2020 – at change of tenancy the property will require to have an EPC of at least Band E By 31st March 2022 – all properties will need to have an EPC of at least Band E From 1st April 2022- any new tenancy will require the property to have an EPC of at least Band D By 31st March 2025 – all properties will need to have an EPC of at least Band D From 1st April 2025 – any new tenancy will require the property to have an EPC of at least Band C By 2030 - all properties will need to have an EPC of at least Band C The introduction of the standard is slightly behind that of England and Wales which were introduced in 2018, however these standards will initially bring them into line and then exceed those standards currently set by England and Wales. There are certain requirements and exemptions associated to these standards and given the potential amount of work required to get some rural properties up to the required standard you may wish to give this early consideration to avoid falling foul and being at risk of potential penalties. Further advice and potential financial assistance for Landlords can be found at: www.energysavingtrust.org.uk/scotlant/businesses-organisations/landlords May I also take this opportunity to remind you all that 2019 Basic Payment Scheme Single Application Forms should be received by Scottish Government Rural Payments and Inspections Division no later than Midnight 15th May 2019 to avoid any penalty or reduction in payment.

April 7th 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. Technology is great, until it isn’t! As of today (7/4/19) we are starting to get busy, thank goodness. In the last 2 weeks we have drilled spring oats, harvested a good amount of carrots and started preparing the fields for this year’s crop of carrots. The spring oat drilling went very well, but as we only had 120 acres available for them it went very quickly, especially with a 6m wide drill. We will hopefully get some more sown in the next 2 weeks as we get more carrot fields cleared, but it takes a bit of time to incorporate the straw and then plough and level the fields. As always we are spreading a good dose of chicken litter on top of the straw to provide nitrogen to fuel the microorganisms and to help break it down quicker, while hopefully reducing any nutrient tie up in the following crops. Making 16” deep beds for The winter wheat and oats are growing away slowly, especially with the lower temperatures we are now experiencing. carrots They have all had an early fungicide along with trace elements and some growth regulator to try and encourage some more rooting. There are a few areas that are struggling though, with wheats poor rooting it doesn’t cope well in areas that have high levels of free living nematodes. In addition one field has a high level of wheat bulb fly, the latter is as stripy as a Celtic top. This is on the only ex potato field that wasn’t irrigated, therefore the canopy was more open and allowed the bulb fly in to lay more eggs than other fields. All of the other fields after potatoes and beet are showing a bit of damage but not in stripes and a bit more sporadically over the field. With no chemical control of this pest now, unless you sow in November and use a seed treatment, we are reduced to using higher seed rates and prompt drilling as a control measure. As a stark contrast the hybrid rye is growing like topsy. It seems to shrug off any challenges that are thrown at it and the vigour of it coming out of the winter always amazes me. It is so far on that I decided to finish off the nitrogen on it last week. This only leaves two more sprays with fungicide and growth regulator before the gate is shut for the season. If only wheat had the same vigour and disease resistance! The “only” downside to the rye is the lack of markets but the advantages it seems to offer, on light land, make it a crop worth pursuing. The carrots we have harvested over the past 2 weeks are performing well, despite the drought last summer. Admittedly we did irrigate them and then there was quite a bit of drizzle in August, but even in September I wouldn’t have predicted the crop we are now getting. We are nearly tidied up with potato shipments for the year with just some poor quality Maris Piper to go. These should hopefully all be away in the next 10 days. Pack outs have been reasonably good and as always there is something to learn from the returns. It remains to be seen how this coming season is going to pan out. At the moment it would appear that we are going to plant the crop at about an average, or maybe slightly earlier time. Will this mean a bigger crop and lower prices? Now, back to my initial comment about technology. Liquid fertiliser is a great product, offering accuracy to the last centimetre, and we have been using it for the last ten years very successfully. With the advent of auto shutoff its accuracy improved even more. However this spring has shown that technology isn’t infallible, for some strange reason when we applied the first dose of nitrogen and sulphur the sprayer thought it was a different length than last year. Therefore the fertiliser was being shutoff too soon and turned on too late when spraying the middle of the field so we now have some lighter strips in some areas! At least if people are looking at that they won’t see any of our other mistakes! Have a good spring.

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

April 10th 2019

Although I have always been a ‘glass half full’ person I am finding it hard to start this piece on an optimistic note. I have never known so much uncertainty, it is a struggle to guess the future direction of travel of our business, our country and how the rapid changes in technology are going to affect our lives. Constitutionally we are in a crisis with the elected unable to fulfil the instructions of the electors. The task was to “Do it”. When they asked “How?” the answer was “We don’t know, just do it” - and that is the problem, there are many Guy Lee different ways to interpret a simple instruction. We could plough the field, it could be cultivated (min till), it could be direct drilled or it could be left in grass. The instruction was to grow a crop, what crop and how to get there was not discussed. The analogy is not that clever as our cycle is annual and if it doesn’t work, we try something else next season. Not so with politics. I am an enthusiastic user of contactless cards, paying for all small items with a card. Gone are the coins that used to make holes in my pockets and the need always to remember one’s wallet. On the other hand as a receiver of cash it is alarming to see its rapid decline to such an extent that the Government is worried that ATMs will disappear as demand reduces and there will be few banks to receive the cash generated from retail sales. 1.3 million citizens in the UK do not have a bank account and over 2 million rely on cash for their daily needs. We sell eggs at the farm gate where there is an honesty box for the cash, there is no way we could go contactless. I have become a MAMIL (Middle Aged Man In Lycra), something I swore I would never do. I have never been very polite about cyclists, how they command the centre of the road and make no effort to move over despite travelling at slower speeds than most cars. Now I have joined their ranks, what a volte-face! I have to say I am enjoying the experience. I think the exercise is definitely not harming my health and I had no idea how steep some of the hills are round here. Most of the time Philly and I go out biking together which we try not to make too competitive, although she is quicker up hill and I overtake her on the downslope. The reason for this sudden enthusiasm for peddling is a week’s bicycling holiday in Transylvania in June. There are ten of us going with an organised group seeing the medieval landscape and ancient agriculture that has survived in that part of the world. The farm looks in great shape, crops are green and healthy, even the winter barley did not go yellow and starved of nitrogen as it always did when I was in charge. Oilseed rape is coming into flower in the second week in April and cattle have been turned out a fortnight earlier than usual. Training for Romania 52
