Charlesfield, St Boswells October 8th 2019

Dear Concerned of Chesters, How touched I was to receive your letter and how right you are in your assumptions. Would he pay for me to go on holiday - never in a million years. As for the love of my life I still yearn for the company of Big Red but if you think my situation is bad please spare a thought for that poor old chap as he lays floundering at the back of a yard in Charlesfield Industrial Estate unloved and out of communication. He has been there for over eight years since he got stuck in third gear over the pit of the vehicle testing station. I am currently outside young Andrew Wight’s workshop awaiting yet another operation to fit a new winch drive gearbox, if I look hard over my right shoulder I can make out the fading colours of Big Red. He has lost his voice and I think his memory is failing as he does not acknowledge me anymore. To go back to your letter am I busy? ‘ No!’. I haven’t done a thing of any usefulness since May, I have let innumerable customers down. I am now taking bookings for November. I am ill but it is not terminal (just expensive when you go privately without health insurance). I trust that you take this communication as a sign of my well being - all is not lost and I will be back on the road soon, I hope. Please keep “the lads” on standby because there is no guarantee with him that I won’t be abandoned at any moment. Thank you for writing and I have given him a serious b------king for excluding me from last month’s Agrimart As always, Wendy

Talking........Organic

October 6th 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. Its wet, very wet! The rain is endless at the moment and the ground is bottomless. The finishing cattle are to come in this week. There’s lots of grass left but they are now making a mess and the sheep will enjoy the remaining forage. We shall endeavor to keep the cows and calves out until at least November, but it will depend on whether the rain stops. We scan the cows and heifers later this week. After last year’s miserable scan, we have persevered with our six /seven week bulling period, so we are looking forward to a marked improvement on last year’s scan. All cows and heifers not in calf will be finished and sold fat. The new straw storage/lambing building is still not up yet, but I am hoping that the team will arrive here this week to put it up. We are starting to really need it up now, as the straw is currently being stored in the heifers shed, and at some point over the next month they will need to come in. We are putting up a 30kw solar array on the new hen house this week to produce our own electric to run the house. Even without the FIT’s it should pay for itself within 7ish years as we will use all the electric produced ourselves. The new hens are now 21 weeks and have come into lay very well and very soon we will be at peak production across the farm. The older hens are at 40 weeks and are continuing to lay well. Progress is being made on the conversion of the granary into the holiday cottage. The roof has been removed, steel supports in place, new timbers positioned and it now needs re-slating. As the granary used to contain two stables for the livery business, we have put up two new stables within an existing building. I am now very bored of BREXIT, as I suspect all of us are. The shenanigans, politicking, and manipulation of laws and procedures, not just by the government but by all the parties has become very tiring. I think I will probably look back at my life at some point and sadly a good chunk of my thinking John Renton - Agricultural Engineer, Chirnside time will be dominated by the 2016 vote and the following Tel: 01890 818807 Fax: 01890 818366 Mob: 07774 163899 decade of negotiations. How dull. This thought process also On-site Hydraulic Hose Service has been slightly eclipsed this last week with us needing 1, 2 & 4 Wire Hose • Pressure Washer Hose to recruit a new shepherd. We have advertised in a number BSP, JIC, ORFS, Metric & Flange Fittings, Adaptors, of publications and are looking forward to finding the right Brake Couplings, Q/R Couplings, etc person to fit the team. 32

On Our Farm

October 8th 2019 Hugo Lee farms in partnership with his father, Guy, at Sandystones, near St Boswells. Arable crops of wheat, oilseed rape, malting barley, oats and rye are grown, 400 Angus cattle are finished annually, 6000 organic hens produce eggs for Waitrose, 14,000 organic point of lay pullets reared each year and 60,000 pheasant & partidge poults are raised. You had it so easy last year, this is a proper Scottish autumn people keep telling me! My second autumn drilling campaign has been anything but easy and it is certainly not over yet. We did manage to get all the oilseed rape, winter barley and half the winter wheat in before the heavens opened. However the last wheat field we drilled before the deluge on Saturday night has turned into a very wet sodden mess. If it does not dry up soon I fear the wheat may all be drowned out before it even has a chance to be destroyed by slugs. I know everyone is in the same position and reports from down south are that no wheat has been drilled at all. However it’s never good to have your worst field right in front of your award winning neighbour’s house! Fortunately I have not had too much time to get depressed about the weather as I have been busy looking after our three children whilst Jess has been on holiday in Mexico. Her sister Wizz works for LinkedIn and as one of the top 10% performers globally she won an all-expenses paid holiday in Cancun with a friend for a week. They flew business class, stayed in a 5* spa resort and were given $500 spending money. By the end of the week I came to the conclusion that a house husband/part time farmer was not for me however a job at LinkedIn well, maybe... The past month has seen the completion of all the Agri-Environment Climate Scheme (AECS) capital works. Since January we have planted 1.7km of new hedgerows, 5ha of wild bird seed mix, 2ha of water margin, installed a rural sustainable drainage system in the steading and restored the mill pond. I am really pleased with the results of all our hard work and strongly believe that everything we have done will benefit the wildlife and environment for many years to come. The cattle as expected did very well on old parkland grass over the summer putting on an average of 0.7kg/day. The price has dropped another 5p/ kg this month as prime beef continues to flood the market and demand Before... slows. I really can’t see any uplift in the short term and as October 31st gets ever closer nobody really knows what is going to happen. However with No Deal looking more and more likely and the tariffs associated with it, the short term outlook for beef is rather concerning. On a brighter note my sister Pixie (Annabel) had a little boy this week called Alfie. Both Pixie and Alfie are doing really well and we are all off to London to see them before they head back to Tanzania. Fingers Ruby and Alfie crossed it dries up and everyone gets drilled up and tatties get lifted. ...and after

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.

The Future of Farming

Talking........from Lincolnshire

October 7th 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. Normally if you install a grain drier it will be followed by the driest ever harvest, or if you drain land you will enter a prolonged drought. Well, not this year. Just as I was pulling the subsoiler along the last headland a couple of Sundays ago it started raining and has yet to stop. The drains are pouring out and highlighting the poor performance of the older schemes where they have been left intact. Fortunately I placed an order for the drainage earlier in the year which meant the bulk of the stone could be stockpiled in preparation for the arrival of the trencher. Lincolnshire is normally awash with gravel but with the advent of the Lincoln Bypass and the Triton Knoll windfarm, gravel is now an endangered species here with the price reflecting the situation. So we used a new Nottinghamshire supplier with excellent results. Firstly the gravel was clean, with no clay sediment stuck to it, and secondly it was far less dense than budgeted which allowed us to drain a further 4ha of land. I had promised myself not to talk about cabbage stem flea beetle, but I can’t help it. Listening to all the advice of “experts” I decided that the only way to avoid the mass migration of CSFB was to plant in early September, which would also aid my struggles with Verticillium Wilt. All good so far, it all drilled nicely with the exception of a longer term direct drilled field (which incidentally is a write off) and then started growing and then stopped. I have sprayed for CSFB once and see no benefit of going again so it is left struggling with very wet feet and the CSFB interchanging with the slugs to really bully the crop. The natural reaction, especially when you see some crops locally, Money well spent is to try and drill the OSR by 7th August, but there are plenty of reports of cabbage root fly about, which requires a later drilling date. All of this is meant to equate to progress, which would then necessitate a return to winter barley on this land. I am losing interest already… The rotation is nicely balanced at the moment and it would be a shame to lose the brassica element. But if the OSR succumbs to larvae in the spring I fear this could be the last time I grow it. The problem is then what to replace it with. I am hesitant about second cereals because of the over reliance on Liberator and I don’t want to be more than 40% spring cropping as a rule. I could let land for maize for the local digester but the thought of them trying to salvage the crop in these conditions would destroy the last 15 years hard work I The calm before the storm have put into trying to improve the soil. I feel a bit more head scratching is required… 44

Talking.........from the boundary Guy Lee

October 8th 2019

For years this rather dark portrait of a formidable lady has hung on our dining room wall with the only thought occasionally crossing my mind that it would look a whole lot better if we had her and her male neighbour cleaned. I never knew who they were, but being deprived of other oil paintings, they filled a space amongst the watercolours on our walls.

It was not until I was reading ‘Station life in New Zealand’ a book that is very well known in that country that I came across those portraits and realised that not only was this my great great grandfather and his sister, who adopted my great Sir George Barker Cecilia Crole Wyndham grandfather when his mother emigrated to New Zealand. This led me to discover more of the remarkable life of my great great grandmother. Born in Jamaica in 1831, her father was the Island Secretary at the time slavery was abolished that caused the Jamaican economy to go into a serious decline having to pay labour to harvest the sugar cane. In 1852 she married Captain Barker who fought first in the Crimean War and then the Indian Mutiny. She had two boys, the younger of whom born in 1857 was my great grandfather. In 1860 with the Indian Mutiny quelled she sailed out to join her husband in India, who she had not seen for three years. They were only together for eight months when Sir George Barker, as he was by then, died suddenly. She came back to the UK a widow and collected her two sons who had been staying with relatives. In 1865 Lady Barker met Frederick Broome, the son of Frederick Broome & Mary a clergyman, who had been sent Anne Broome (Lady Barker) aged 15 to New Zealand as a cadet circa 1867 in New Zealand farmer. Ten years later he came back to England, met and fell in love with her and persuaded her to join him on a sheep station he was buying on the South Island. Again she left her two boys behind and sailed to Christchurch via Melbourne. For three years she and Frederick developed their life in this young country, but their ambitions were ruined We will provide the complete by the Great Storm of 1868 when their sheep flock either service for all your steel framed suffocated in the six foot of snow that fell in 2 days or drowned building requirements in the flooding that followed.

October 7th 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. It’s a busy and lovely time of year. After a slow start spring has sprung, the grass is growing and the cows have nearly finished calving. The first hatching of mudfish can be seen in the wetlands and there are mobs of piglets threatening to invade the boss’ garden. The wheat crops are starting to shine and the spring crops are emerging. The lambs are all shorn and the first 900 have been shipped to the North island for slaughter. They are averaging 24kgs carcass weight and returned $194 which is a welcome lift on last year. The market is looking firm thanks to swine fever in China despite the Brexit mess in the UK. The new $90k effluent storage and application system on the dairy farm has been commissioned and I think is going to be a sound investment despite my reluctance to spend that sort of money. If I can get the staff to use the system properly we should manage some Happy lambs significant savings in fertiliser use. We’ve also finished doing up the “Dower House” for what we hope will be a successful venture into accommodation for tourists. We are only 1 hour from Christchurch airport which makes it an ideal first night in or last night out for overseas visitors and some would say we are an ok destination in our own right. It is very smart and we would welcome wandering Scotsmen. The election campaign is into its last few days so by Saturday there is an outside chance I could be The Dower House a politician. I may struggle to live up to the new standard. I couldn’t find the Ukrainian president’s telephone number to get him to nobble my opponents, nor the Queens for that matter should I have the need to lie to her. Maybe Fixing tile drains I’ll be a lousy politician.

October 6th 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. I had to check, but I definitely said in my last report that we “could” be finished harvesting potatoes by mid-October! As of today (6/10/19) that is still possible but it will probably carry on for a bit after that as; A) we have 110 acres left to go, B) we can harvest 10 or so a day and, C) it looks wet for the next week! The weather is certainly looking a bit poorer than the last 10 days have been but so far we’ve only had about 10mm of the predicted deluge that was meant to be headed our way. Luckily the main band of weather that was forecast has passed through reasonably quickly. I will also acknowledge here that we have been quite a bit drier than areas to the north and south of us. Maybe there is some value in living in a rain shadow, although it doesn’t feel like it when we’re irrigating and a few miles away they are getting a decent bit of rain. On that subject, at our most recent agronomy group meeting, everyone seems to have had an OK harvest, mostly because they caught some moisture during the critical grain fill periods. Harvest in general seems to be have been pretty reasonable from a yield perspective, there have been some quality issues in most of the cereal crops but by and large this area has fared not too badly. Now that I have finally finished combining (May 17th sown oats cut October 2nd) and have received back analysis results I would say that harvest, although not record breaking, has been fair! Yields have been about our long term average, except for the hybrid rye, and although poor bushel weight will lead to some claims there do not appear to be any disasters. As mentioned already we are working our way through the potato harvest, the salad potatoes are all done and we are on to the Maris Piper. This variety, yet again, is the one with the largest area in the UK at 13.5% of the 118,950Ha potato crop, and is the mainstay of both the fresh and processing markets, despite it being a challenge to grow a good quality crop. There has also been a small increase in total potato area this season of 1% and with the better growing conditions, yields and quality there is downward pressure on prices. However I am quite risk adverse when it comes to the potato crop so each year we have a large % on fixed price contracts, this year there is about 60%. This does mean that in high price years we lose out but on average it is ok. Away from the potato fields we have been working on our autumn drilling programme, unfortunately a large tractor breakdown meant we didn’t get started until the 29th of September. The rye was the first to be sown and there is still a balance of barley before we get to the wheat so hopefully the catchy forecast for the next week is wrong! We had actually managed to get a lot of ground ploughed ready to drill so once we got started there was no hold up there but there is still a bit of ploughed ground to go at. Some of this will be getting a bit wet now so might necessitate a change of cropping, but there are a few fields that we can plough in front of the drill which will let us get on. Here’s hoping for another dry spell! 52

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. Saturday night past is one of those nights where it would nearly be impossible to avoid questioning my occupation! It was a serious night of rain which will have damaged cow lanes and undoubtedly made already saturated ground even wetter. Stock outside is well spread out with numbers reduced in some groups and they seemed to have weathered the storm ok. The housed stock had its problems too as the mist filled the houses which I never like to see. Disinfected calf houses haven’t dried out either leaving newborns in the calving pens in the meantime which I really don’t like. Calving has got off to a reasonable start and as numbers of cows and calves increase it makes batch feeding easier. Dry cows had to be housed earlier than I would have liked but it is probably better nutritionally for them. They are receiving 1/2kg of oats and 1/2 kg soya with minerals to hopefully boost milk yield in the next lactation without growing the onboard calf too much. As we are getting further back at the silo face the quality seems to be improving nicely, with fresh calves inside day and night and the stales still grazing in the daytime. At the end of the month the farm is hosting our turn for the business development meetings and the subject is calf diseases. With our vet doing the talk, I’m sure there will be something to learn. The harvest ended up with a great finale as there were 8-10 great days turned up just in time. The straw that was lying for 3 weeks previous was the biggest challenge with the dew not lifting to dinner time and returning at 6 or so. Overall it has been a bountiful harvest with plenty of Silage, Grain and Straw. So as Harvest Thanksgiving season gets underway, we have indeed much to be thankful for. It is nevertheless not good to be complacent as winter crop establishment is looking increasingly doubtful in our type of ground, which in turn will place pressure on next spring and on harvest time, but we will worry about it then. In the meantime there is a ridiculous slurry deadline looming and in the current ground conditions I don’t know what we are supposed to do, as working to deadlines doesn’t always go hand in hand with good farming practice.
