Wendy writes

DRY HARVEST UGH? - IT’S ALRIGHT FOR THEM

September 2021

All I hear is what an easy harvest it has been. ‘Hardly a wet day’, ‘Never finished so early’, ‘Really can’t complain’ Well what about me? How do I feel? Do you think I enjoy ground as hard as iron? Of course not, my whole ‘Raison d’etre’ is pulling out things that get stuck. I don’t drive round with 80 metres of 28mm cable on my derriere just for fun. It’s very heavy you know and there for a purpose, but no rain means no work for me and that does not make very happy. I hark back to 2008 when I pulled out four bogged combines in a month, one machine I pulled out twice in the space of an hour. I hadn’t even got out of the gate and onto the road before he was stuck again. Oh for those glory days, every cloud has a silver lining but for me they were the golden days when the rain fell and they couldn’t manage without me. So much for climate change, it does not seem to be working in my favour. Still I won’t give up, I will sit here patiently waiting for that plaintive phone call saying ‘Is Wendy free? I think I need her, I’m stuck’

And just like that, (well almost), the cereal harvest has finished. For once the weather hasn’t been a major issue. During August we have been flat out installing new tractors and harvest machinery across the Lothian’s, Borders and Northumberland. And one of our exciting new projects has been working on a new service, doing field conductivity scanning and some soil sampling. The main aim here is to identify differences in soil types as you can see from the map below. First we RTK all field boundaries and load them into your ‘My John Deere’ account. Then we can overlay yield maps, create Variable Rate Application seed files, offer soil nutrient analysis. Once the VRA plans have been created, we can turn them into work plans within your ‘My John Deere’ Account. If you would like to know more, please don’t hesitate to give us a call on the Technology Hotline number below, or scan the QR code to download the Sherriff Expert Connect App.

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. Changeable, catchy, mixed - the weather this summer has been all these things. One minute its 30 degrees, the next we’re putting the fire on. Compared to our fellow farmers down south, we’ve actually had some ok spells. The result is that all the jobs seem to need doing at exactly the same time, putting pressure on the team; leading straw, second cut silage, hen shed cleandown, bulls off, spaning lambs – it all needs to be done… now. Lamb weights aren’t as good as I had hoped and its probably due to a number of factors – they’ll get there. However with Claire kindly keeping me informed on the state of the cash flow, we could have done with some early sales, so we’ll have to juggle a bit longer. We’re wrapping the second cut silage as its easier to feed the sheep with bales rather than pit silage. Sadly, we’ve cut later than I had hoped but the quality is still good. The benefit of leaving it later is that all the bees have had an absolute field day on the clover pollen. As I was cutting yesterday the number of bees was staggering. As a result, I have left an acre uncut so that it keeps them going along with the margins. We depopulated one of the hen sheds at the end of August and had the quickest muck out in order to be ready for the pressure wash team. The dates for catching teams, wash down teams, new hens are set months in advance (the wash down team is set almost a year in advance due to availability) with everything linked round the 16-week date of the new hens, so birds going out is driven by when new hens are booked to come in. Changing dates is a no-no, as you’ll never be sure that you will get everything booked in again. This year there are significant labour shortages across all the industries, but the thought of catching 12,000 hens in an evening is not something I’m keen to try and I’m HAULAGE AND SPREADING CONTRACTORS very thankful that the catching team showed up. This year they were Auto Rate Control, Weigher and GPS on time, polite and efficient, I couldn’t have hoped for more, however Poultry Manure, Digestate, Compost, Limex, FYM etc. there are many places where depopulation hasn’t gone so smoothly. Organic Certificated Manure Labour shortages have become a real problem, material supply issues, parts, chips, HGV drivers – its literally as if the wheels have fallen Variable Rate Spreading for Lime and Manure off everything and I suspect things might get worse before they get All products supplied better. The pandemic and latterly the pingdemic as well as Brexit have Apply to growing crops shown up the pinch points and weaknesses of the supply chain. Fruit ALSO Manure can be delivered by Tractor & Trailer and vegetables going un-picked, produce struggling to get delivered. S Manure mixed with a high DM product, U L P Every sector affected, cars, computers etc. You might not even get a perfect for stockpiling and increased organic matter blood test at the doctors as theres a shortage of test tubes… here’s a thought, how about we join the EU… free movement of labour and Call Richard 07971 580 888 goods… problem solved ! info@murrayofredden.com|www.murrayofredden.com

On Our Farm

September 7th 2021 Hugo Lee farms in partnership with his father, Guy, at Sandystones, near St Boswells. Arable crops of wheat, oilseed rape, malting barley, oats and rye are grown, 400 Angus cattle are finished annually, 6000 organic hens produce eggs for Waitrose and 14,000 organic point of lay pullets are reared each year. Having been a professional sports man in a previous life I am naturally very competitive. So I was very pleased to send a WhatsApp video to my former neighbours in Hampshire of us finishing harvest on 26th August. We have run a tongue in cheek first to finish harvest competition ever since I farmed at Whitsbury. Since coming home they took great satisfaction in sending me pictures of motorbike trips to the South of France and holidays in Portugal whilst we had not even started the wheat or spring barley! This year the WhatsApp was eerily quiet, a couple of pictures early on of a shiny new ‘IDEAL’ combine, Final day of harvest 2021 which due to persistent breakdowns became known as the ‘not so ideal’ but that was about it. As they fiddled around waiting for moistures to get below 17% we quietly crossed the finish line over a week before them. They took defeat graciously as usual accusing me of cheating and they even thought I had emigrated to the south of France without telling them. I don’t hold great hopes of retaining the title next year however, I will remember harvest 2021 for a long time. It is very rare to hit the jackpot of brilliant weather, good yields and plentiful straw and good prices. Living in the Scottish Sahara has many benefits. The lawn only has to be cut every other week, straw can be left unbaled for more than a day, crops hardly need drying and the rare day off can be spent swimming in the river. However, people keep telling me this good weather will never last for ever and when it rains it will never stop. Therefore unlike my southern colleagues, who go on holiday after harvest, we carry on desperately trying to get through the long list of jobs before the weather does eventually break. Tracks to the new hen shed (no 4), which is currently under construction, have been laid, winter barley is being drilled and the last fields cleared of straw. We have just enjoyed a fantastic couple of weeks with both my sisters and their families staying at Sandystones. Pixie, my youngest sister, lives in Nairobi with her family so rarely are we all together. All the cousins get on so well and spent the days riding, climbing Eildons and playing with the puppies. Alfie (almost 2), Pixie’s youngest LOVES farming, something he does not get to experience much in Kenya. The old man affectionately known as ‘Bugeye’ loved taking Alfie on farm tours with harvest in full swing he could not quite believe he was experiencing ‘tractor ted’ in real life!

September 6th 2021 Tom Pate farms 240ha of arable on a tenanted farm in Angus. Cropping includes wheat, spring barley, rye and oilseed rape along with land let for potatoes and vining peas. Additionally, around 6500 pigs are reared annually under contract and 600 Christmas turkeys sold directly to the public under the KellyBronze franchise. On his wife’s 380ha family farm in the Angus Glens they also run 200 red deer hinds plus followers for venison production, along with developing a forestry enterprise. Whilst the Weather Gods have smiled upon us this harvest the Dark Lord of Machinery Breakdowns has brought his wrath upon my small patch of earth. Blighted by small and large mechanical disasters the harvest has been an expensive affair. Any costs saved by low moisture grains hardly needing drying will be more than negated by the machinery repair invoices winging their way to me over the next few weeks. After a full annual winter service the combine rolled out of the shed ready for action on the 17th August. However, after only 8 hectares the eagle-eyed Adam, who was carting off, flagged me down as he had Oilseed Rape being sown in spotted oil leaking from the side panel. My initial frustration at what must be a burst hydraulic pipe soon perfect conditions turned to horror as it became apparent the oil was actually coming from the engine itself. A small but fatal hairline crack in the cylinder head was losing oil at an alarming rate. The combine hasn’t moved since. If it wasn’t for Adam’s quick response the engine would have seized and be beyond salvage but as it stands, we await a refurbished block to be fitted and the combine should live to fight another day. Looking down the barrel of harvest without a combine is an uncomfortable place to be. Thankfully the fantastic team at Sellars (Letham) came up trumps and produced a combine the very next day which allowed me to carry on. Apparently, they always try to have a couple of combines up their sleeve to help customers in their hour of need - a service that is truly appreciated. Not only did my combine break that day but there was also a burst hydraulic pipe on the JCB loader and the diesel tank pump packed up. Currently my tractor is sitting up at the dealership awaiting binding brakes to be sorted and our flail mower is getting a lifesaving operation at the local smiddy. Add to this a list of other mechanical misfortunes I was beginning to think I was cursed. Although unfortunate to have had so many breakdowns I have been fortunate enough to be aided by some great suppliers and mechanics who have pulled out the stops to keep the wheels turning despite the adversities. It can’t be easy fixing machinery in a field, at night, covered in oil and chaff with an anxious farmer hanging about muttering expletives. I salute those mechanics servicing the farming industry. Without you we’d be sunk. Adding to the pressure, all crops seemed to ripen at the same time. About a third of the spring barley was cut before the oilseed rape, instantly followed by the remaining barely with the wheat following immediately after. Only the Turkeys enjoying life on the range last 20 hectares of wheat has been slow to ripen but this should be finished around the 8th September. The weather has been perfect and has also seen the sown oilseed rape (17th August) off to a flyer – I don’t recall rape establishing so quickly for years. Without a weighbridge or yield monitor my yield results will have to wait but I suspect rape was an average crop and both wheat and barley slightly above average. Quality appears to be good with only broken grains in barley being of concern. The wheat is an especially beautiful bold sample. The early end to harvest is most welcome with plenty of work to do in the weeks ahead. Let’s just hope my machinery jinx is at an end.

September 6th 2021 Will Howe is an arable farmer from Sleaford, Lincolnshire. The soils are predominantly heavy. There is 365ha of cropping including winter wheat, spring beans, spring oats and the introduction of grass leys used to rear Native Dairy X calves. He also manages a contracting business Thorpe Farming Ltd. This is the tale of the summer that never was. I have never had such a poor combining season, yet without receiving any measurable rain. The wheat at home has done a respectable 10t/ha and the majority was cut dry for a change, but the last hundred acres just sat stubbornly at 17% and the daytime temperatures never got higher than 18 degrees. To see Dad running the drier in a fleece summed it up really. We always cut my customers wheat last, as he has no drying facilities Combining Graham wheat and likes the ability to pick and choose his days. After 8 days of murk, drizzle and general October style weather even he was getting twitchy, so half his wheat has been hauled here to be dried. Now we wait on lorries… I am hoping to start the spring oats this afternoon but a test run a couple of days ago does not bode well. I have 2 distinct canopy heights within the crop. One at knee height has lovely plump grains, the other at waist level is just all husk. The specific weight of 39kg/hl says it all. It will be a matter of getting it cut and concentrating on next year’s crop. To try and balance the rotation, which has been distorted by a 2yr grass ley and with the decent OSR crops locally this year I thought I would try and plant 40ha for me, and 47ha for a customer. We were both in agreement that this was only going to end badly so we would wait until substantial rain was forecast to try and mitigate the risk. Then on the forecasting horizon 2 Sundays ago was heavy rain. All Heavy land OSR 16 days after planting three of my weather Apps agreed, it was to be measured in inches rather than mm. We waited and the forecast did not waiver. We then waited some more and leaving myself 2 days to do the drilling we ordered the seed. As the delivery man dropped the bags of seed in the yard they were swooped up and emptied into the drill. The ground was hard, my speed was slow and with the coulter pressure cranked right up to try and crush the clod over the seed. Literally as I folded the drill up the spots began landing on the windscreen and I allowed my dishevelled and tired self a wry smile that man took on the weather; and won. Only I hadn’t. A grand total of 3mm was enough to chit some seed, but I fear the heavier land won’t Medium land 16 days after make it till Xmas, let alone harvest. Never have you seen so many irrigators on stubble fields, perhaps planting now the drainage is nearly complete a reservoir is the next thing on the list… 48

Talking........New Zealand

September 7th 2021

Ian Mackenzie is an arable and dairy farmer from the Canterbury Plain in the South Island of New Zealand. He runs a number of fully irrigated intensive cropping farms, producing grain, vegetable and grass seeds with some stock finishing. We’ve been back in lockdown again for a couple of weeks which has allowed me to catch up on some long delayed farming projects. The dairy farm although flat, tilts towards the sea and after heavy rains, water tends to collect at the bottom of the paddocks along the cow track to the milking shed. I’ve been fencing the wettest strips off so there is a now a fenced strip running along the length of the track and I’ve planted this strip in sedges and wetland grasses with the hope that they will soak up the run off and reduce nutrient loss to the drains. I don’t know if it will be successful but I got the last of several hundred plants into the ground last week. My aching Harvesting sugar beet back would suggest that it had better work. I even got around to killing Tim O’Toole the Tamworth and a couple of old sows in the hope that that will encourage the remaining sows to have some piglets. Spring looks like it is kicking into gear after a long cold and wet August. The Wee Fella is trying to get all the lambs shorn and has lambs going for slaughter next week. The prices are at record highs of around $9/kg so a 23kg lamb will return over $200 which should leave a good margin... I think the buy in price averaged just over $100/head. The cows are about two thirds of the way through calving, the grass is starting to grow and milk production is starting to pick up. We grow a small area of sugar beet to feed the cows over the spring and early summer to try and balance their diet and lower the milk urea level. A couple of kilos of beet per cow seems to be very popular with the cows. We are told that a lower milk urea level correlates to more diluted urine and a lower potential for leaching nitrates into waterways. I might start growing leaves if I get any greener! We lifted this years crop over the weekend and I think we harvested something over 300 wet tonnes off 4 ha. We’ll drill barley into that ground this week. The only downside to the spring so far is some of the wheat looks pretty scruffy as a result of the floods we had at the end of May. The worst paddocks are by the front drive and are frustratingly hard to ignore. Despite this it is a great time of year with all the potential that a new season brings to the farm. If Dagging lambs the sows have piglets it could be a good year. 50

Talking........Agritourism

September 2021 Graeme Jarron – Ogilvy Spirits, Hatton of Ogilvy Farm, Glamis As a family, we have been farming at Hatton of Ogilvy farm for over 100 years. I am the fourth generation of the family to farm here alongside my wife Caroline. We are a mixed farming enterprise, producing cereals, potatoes and rearing beef cattle. My parents, Eric and Grace are still very involved in the farm; however, the most recent diversification has been a project that Caroline and I have undertaken together. Like many young farmers, I spent a year working in Australia after finishing college where I worked for a family that produced their own wine from the grapes grown on the farm. I liked the idea of a product that was produced from start to finish on the farm which gave me ideas to diversify when I returned home to the family farm. It was after several years and after many ideas for diversification that the idea for potato vodka was born. Our potatoes have always been grown for the supermarkets, but I felt that there must be a better way to utilise the secondary potatoes. We approached The Brewing & Distilling department at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh who agreed to help us with our trials. We were delighted to discover that our potatoes could produce vodka, and Abhishek Banik who was one of the PHD students joined us as our Distiller, and helped to design the distillery and recipe. It was in February 2014 that we began building the distillery on the farm. By late 2014 we had a recipe that we were happy with and we launched to market. Having come from a background in farming and Caroline’s background in design we felt we had a lot to prove in the drinks industry which is why it was so important that we perfected our final recipe before rushing to market. Within the first six months of launching, we won the Vodka Trophy prize at the IWSC awards in London. We were delighted that our wonky potatoes had achieved such great things. We can utilise all the secondary grade potatoes for our vodka production, and we have done this in a sustainable manner from day one, having achieved a full circular economy in our production. Solar panels on the roof of the distillery provide all the electricity needed and our cooling water is source from the pond on the farm. Even our cattle get their share known as the ‘Coos Booze’ – they get the leftover pot ale from the distillation! With such a unique offering, we were approached many times to offer tours of the distillery. We were very lucky to secure Leader Funding to develop our old cart shed into a Visitor Centre with tasting room and shop. This has led us into our second diversification into the agritourism sector. We are now back open again for tours after being closed for many months due to Covid and it has been wonderful to show visitors around again (and of course let them sample some of the products too!). Website: www.ogilvyspirits.com or follow us on Facebook or Instagram (Ogilvy Vodka). Tours run at 2pm on Saturday + Sunday. 54

September 2021 Significant expansion for D&R in D&G Davidson & Robertson (D&R) add to their team with a focus on the Castle Douglas office D&R, Scotland’s longest standing firm of Rural Surveyors and Consultants who have offices across Scotland and Northern England, are set to significantly expand the team and service offering in their office in Castle Douglas in the Southwest of Scotland. D&R Director Ian Austin, who grew up on the family beef and sheep farm near Gatehouse of Fleet and has worked with agricultural clients across Dumfries and Galloway and the Central Belt for over ten years, will head up the local team. Ian joined D&R in 2015, becoming a Director in August 2018 and taking Ian Austin on the role of Head of Department for D&R’s Utilities, Energy and Infrastructure team in 2020. Derek Bathgate, previous branch manager in Castle Douglas and now based in D&R’s Ayr Office, continues to represent clients in the area and is now the lead Director for renewable energy within the business. As many clients are aware, long serving and well-respected Consultant John Neil FIA Scot is sadly facing a terminal illness but remains engaged with D&R and is committed to ensuring his long-term clients continue to be well served. As part of this, Ian McKnight, a familiar face in the region, joined D&R as a Consultant in August 2021 and his role includes assisting in the continued negotiations surrounding the reinstatement of the Gas Networks Ireland (GNI) pipeline in the area. Senior Land Agent Sarah Bennett (nee Jamison) returns from maternity leave in November and will also be involved in the project. Ian Austin and the team in the Rural and Agency Department have seen a strong rise in the number of properties being bought and sold through the Castle Douglas office. These have mostly been actioned locally with support from the national dedicated sales team headed up by George Hipwell. Due to growth in the sales and valuations side of the business, Romy Noble, who has worked for D&R since 2015 and moved to the Castle Douglas office in 2019, has recently taken on a new role as Sales and Valuations Assistant. This means she will deliver administrative support to the sales team with a focus on exceptional client service. In the Property and Forestry Department, Kimberly Briscoe has joined D&R as a Graduate Surveyor. Kimberly recently completed her Masters of Land Economy in Rural Surveying and Rural Property Management at The University of Aberdeen and will be based in the Castle Douglas office. Kimberly has a background as an archaeological surveyor and has strong mapping skills having held roles as a Geographic Information System (GIS) Teaching Support Coordinator and GIS Technician. Eilidh Strachan will be starting on September 20th as Property and Forestry Coordinator. Eilidh is currently a well-established Property Manager in the area and shall be providing administrative support to the Property & Forestry Team. Associate Nick Mellish is a property management expert based in Lockerbie and Forestry Manager Rob Cleaver spends much of his time in the Region attending to ongoing projects and performing appraisals. Ian Austin commented “The Southwest Scotland is a key area for D&R, so it was essential that we expand and develop our team in the local office to ensure our valued clients continue to be well served and we have the opportunity to grow our business in the area based on a well-established reputation. Each of D&R’s three departments are well represented locally, meaning that expertise in a wide range of workstreams is easily accessible. Support can also be brought in through our wider network such as Chris Edmunds and Nigel Harris from our Cockermouth Office who are both involved in the GNI pipeline project. It is nice to see the office bustling with activity again as we return from COVID and with the expanded team. D&R are in a good place going forward.”

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

September 7th 2021

If I am supposed to be semi-retired why do I always put my hand up when there is opportunity of more work? Stupid or what! I have to admit to enjoying a challenge and I think we have one on our hands now. I offered to provide and, be part of a squad, laying out heat pipes in a large ground source heat project near Selkirk. This involves pulling out 400 metres of 40mm pipe off a reel , going the full distance and then pulling 200 metres back so that there is a continuous loop running up one side of a 200 metre trench and back Guy Lee down the other side, keeping the pipes 1 metre apart. All of Hugo’s 6’6” is needed to pull that distance, with two assistants at strategic points. There is total of 24,000 metres to be laid out in 60 trenches. This work certainly keeps you fit, although a good degree of initial fitness is required. Fortunately the excavator can only dig 1200 metres a week so we are only needed Laying out heat pipes in one day in seven. 200m long trenches Overall, like all arable farmers in this part of the world, we have had a very easy harvest which was completed in the third week in August, the earliest finish I can recall. The yields have been surprisingly good, none more so than the winter barley with output almost double that of last year. This is surprising as I felt the weather was similar with a very dry April, although the nights were far colder this year with many frosts. However, what is amazing is the amount of sun we have had this year. According to my solar records we produced more electricity from our solar panels in April than any month this year. I have never seen this before as it is always a stepped bar chart with peak production in June or July. I am certain that this was a massive contributor to the amount of grain set, although conversely the frost hit the flowering oilseed rape and restricted the number of pods. Last year we had a bumper number of apples, this year some trees are bare of fruit. The truism of all this is no two years are never the same even if you think they are… Who would have predicted two years ago the price that sheep, of all types and sizes, are achieving? Brexit was supposed to be the death knell to the trade not the making of it. As surprising the gain is for sheep farmers, so is the unexpected effect the lack of HGV drivers is having on the supply chain and none more so than growers of fresh produce. A near neighbour is having a nightmare of a time trying to move his freshly harvested broccoli to freezers. This is not the immediate scarcity of haulage to move his produce but the lack of capacity to clear space in the freezers to create room for his and others. No one saw this crisis looming and it only became apparent in the week before his pickers were about to start. We are fortunate to produce food that stores well and has a long shelf life.
