DIRECTOR

Hold the choppers and bale this year‌ Due to the dry weather livestock farmers are under severe pressure for feed stocks with high demand for baled fodder and grazing now. There is also demand to secure autumn and winter grazing. Could you sow fodder crops for winter grazing as a break crop in your arable rotation? There is unprecedented demand for straw from livestock farmers. Please consider selling straw instead of chopping; barley, wheat, oats and rape straw are all in demand. Call the BMR office to register availability or need for fodder, straw, grazing or winter keep. ~ BMR members are working together to help out in testing times ~ BMR, Leader House, Mill Road, Earlston, TD4 6DG

MORPETH MITSUBISHI DEALERSHIP GOES THE EXTRA MILE WITH ITS OFF-ROAD DEMONSTRATIONS

Morpeth’s Mitsubishi dealership has launched a brand new test drive initiative that is dedicated to making it easier than ever for busy farmers to get behind the wheel of their perfect Mitsubishi. With its new ‘Test Drive to You’ programme, Blackshaws Mitsubishi, located on Coopies Lane, Morpeth, is offering farmers throughout the region the opportunity to take a test drive literally on their doorstep. Knowing how essential it is for working farms to be manned around the clock and how even just a few hours away from the business can cause significant disruption to a normal day, Justine Blackshaw from the familyowned dealership is now able to bring Mitsubishi vehicles to farmers for a free, no-obligation appraisal. The exclusive, no-pressure offer is open to farmers based in Northumberland, Newcastle and Hexham. With a strong background in equestrianism, Justine knows exactly what it takes to make the perfect working vehicle and her on-site test drives will see her help farmers to identify the Mitsubishi that is most suitable for their needs. Justine, L200 Relations Manager at Blackshaws Mitsubishi, said: “I can’t wait to get on the road and show farmers what our range of vehicles can really do. We’re always looking to take our award-winning service to an even higher level and with a lot of customers in the agricultural industry, showcasing our vehicles in a rural working environment is a great way to save time for our customers and also perfectly demonstrate how they can benefit farmers’ businesses.” The launch of ‘Test Drive to You’ comes at a very exciting time for Blackshaws Mitsubishi and its customers. After opening in March 2016, the dealership has gone from strength to strength and was recently named by Mitsubishi Motors in the UK as its ‘New Dealer of the Year’. A Mitsubishi that’s certain to appeal to farmers who take advantage of ‘Test Drive to You’ is the L200 pickup. The award-winning pickup has recently been enhanced with an increase in towing capacity to 3.5 tonnes (braked)* and offers best-in-class total carrying capacity when towing at the maximum weight. Additionally, it’s also the only pickup that can tow 3.5-tonnes on tarmac in four-wheel drive. Customers can choose from single, club and double cab body styles, plus a number of trim levels, with the range starting from £19,505 (CV OTR excluding VAT). The rugged pickup also comes with the reassurance of a comprehensive five-year warranty package. Blackshaws Morpeth is also celebrating the launch of the all-new Mitsubishi Shogun Sport – a luxurious seven-seat SUV which is sure to be a hit with those who need a vehicle that offers exemplary off-road performance.

To book a convenient and no-obligation ‘Test Drive to You’ slot, call Justine Blackshaw on: 07494 905377 or book online at www.blackshaws.net

**3.5t towing capacity is possible with 3 axle braked trailer; 3.1t towing capacity is possible with 1 or 2 axle braked trailer; 0.75t towing capacity is possible regardless of the number of trailer axles or trailer brakes.

TALK ABOUT HAVING YOUR NOSE PUT OUT OF JOINT

August 2018

How could he? The audacity of the man. There am I being made to look a laughing stock with my shabby appearance, and he pleads poverty saying he can’t find the time or the money to spend on me. And what does the man do but go and spend more than I ever need on a stupid looking white van with silly bits of wood on the side.

I have to tell you this came as such a shock to me that I was left speechless. I am not usually lost for words but on this occasion I Wendy writes did not know where to look or what to say. What’s the point of a fifty year old box on wheels? It can neither pull nor push. It speaks with a rather funny, gravelly voice and has no time for me at all. In fact to such an extent that for the 3 weeks it has been living here it has not put one wheel on the farm. It spends its life almost inside her house.

We were both taken to the Border Union Show, I was parked up the end between Jamie Innes and his jumps and Gary Renwick’s tractor. It was placed in pride of place, under a special little green tent, in case it rained. Of course everybody loved it and I was just about ignored. What do you do in situations such as these? One does not behave like Ben Stokes, the cricketer, and lose control of yourself, one has to be more scheming and shocking. On Friday at the show when no one was looking I got a mechanic friend of mine to loosen its cylinder head a little. I was surprised they managed to drive it home. It was on the return journey to Kelso for the Saturday that I got my revenge, a puff of white smoke from both ends and it died. I was shocked to see it being towed in, I thought you had to be fit and able to be on display. Not so, apparently if you have got wood on your sides you are allowed in whatever your condition.

Wendy’s revenge

Where he took five weeks to get me going in March, it was back on the road in four days. I will have to think up something more drastic next time.

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

Energy Engineering Expert Increase Efficiency of Your Renewables Why should clients install a Calibrate Controller? • The Calibrate Control system allows you to maximise your tariff generation from numerous renewable sources. • It enables Calibrate to have a constant overview of your system which we can access remotely to make any necessary adjustments to increase the performance. • Allows efficient time management for the service engineer to enable Calibrate to track the system in real time and make adjustments remotely. (Often this means we know the system requires work before you do.) • Export Management Control – Calibrate can alter the Heat Pump to suit your needs. For example, if there is excess power generated we can utilise this through the ground source heat pump which is more beneficial to you. All this results in ultimate peace of mind for you as the client. You can be confident, knowing that Calibrate are constantly managing the system and optimising your tariffs.

The Calibrate Control Solution • A bespoke control system built specifically for your individual needs. • Calibrate have 22 years of industry knowledge, and 6 years of intense frontline control software solution development to ensure this system runs smoothly and efficiently.

How does it work? The controller varies the speed of the pumps to achieve optimum temperatures and performance. It also shows a large variance of the system that you’d not normally be able to view. The controller constantly adjusts all aspects of the overall system to gain the extra efficiency. Calibrate commonly operate systems at over 500% efficiency, compared to the industry average of 300%. This is done by monitoring multiple sensors and using the controller to adjust them automatically.

How are Calibrate qualified to install and who benefits from it? The control system is designed and developed in house and is unique to each site. Each client can benefit in different ways depending on their infrastructure. For example - if you generate electricity from an existing renewable plant we can manage the power through the control system to increase or decrease the usage of a heat pump to maximise the tariff.

How to improve yield and quality of Oats? Bioscence Independent trials at loddington over 4 years helped to provide very valuable data, Oats showed an average yield increase of 12%. The Bioscence approach helped increase natural soil biology and improved plant root mass. Every 1cm deeper your roots go, you access 130 tons of soil across 1/ha, therefore improving plant feeding, leading to better yield, milling quality, plant health and stress reduction. We achieved these results and still managed to reduce nitrogen by 10%. On farm trials over many years have also shown yield increases of 10-20%. Consistent improvements in bushel weights were noted, helping to meet market demands and improve yield. Franklin Soil Fertility liquid bio stimulant can easily be applied with other crop treatments, is tank mixable, safe and simple to use.

• Improved root mass • Better plant feeding • Improved biology • 12% increase yield • Improved milling quality • 10% less nitrogen • £57/ha improved margin (based on £112/ton selling price)

To find out how you can improve your oats contact - David Franklin

August 5th 2018

Colin Mitchell is farm manager at Meikleour Estate near Blairgowrie in Perthshire. The soils range from light sand and gravel to some heavy, wet, north facing clay loams with 400 acres of fertile silty sand. Cropping covers 2200 acres and includes winter wheat, barley, oats and oilseed rape, spring barley and oats, seed and ware potatoes, carrots and vining peas. 5/8/18 isn’t a date where you would usually see me harvesting wheat but as of now, it’s the earliest I have ever cut that crop! However it’s not the worst result ever, just nearly. My previous record was 14th of August and that field did 5t/ha. At the moment the field we’re in looks like 6t/ha, possibly, I’m certainly hoping it’s the worst one as it did burn off first and that things will get better from here. If the weather stays good we will be able to have 50% of our cereal harvest done in the next 10 days. Some more fields of wheat with volunteer potatoes have been sprayed off so we can get to them from Thursday onwards but next after the current field is the rye. It will still be ready to harvest earlier than average but maybe by only a week, so I’m hoping that means it’ll be nearer an average yield than the wheat. In addition there will be MOBILE SERVICES 30ha of Spring oats ready by next weekend as well, which I’m not holding out greatENGINEERING hopes for (that means it will be ready 4 -­‐     F abrication   MOBILE ENGINEERING SERVICES   weeks earlier than usual).

Talking......... Livestock

August 5th 2018

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. There was never much fear of me emigrating, at least not to a hotter country, as I’m generally not a traveller and not a great holiday maker either but that long hot and heavy weather didn’t seem to agree with me as work seemed a struggle. Now that temperatures are back to normal I feel much more energetic and most chores are up to date. The long awaited rain finally arrived and has made a considerable difference. The photographs show the improvement over last month’s picture. At the end of the day that ground has lost a full rotation in the grazing platform. During the dry spell we gambled by continuing to sow fertilizer as normal, which seems to have paid off as grazing has come back to normal very quickly, with no evident loss of nutrition. Second cut also was delayed to allow the rain to kick start the nutrition again, as we have only started to cut I’m happy so far but the proof will be in the silo, soon hopefully. 10% of silage ground was needed to extend the grazing platform, this has been replaced since with other “grubby” grazing ground to keep all things equal. Realistically speaking with a few calculations as you go along or at the financial year end you will know whether your business is going anywhere or not. Within this there are many factors. Some of which are limiting and others which are advantages, some of which are controllable and many which are not. With this in mind we had our benchmarking figures brought up to date for the 17/18 year but only for the cows. This highlighted the extra meal fed during the wet last year as it increased by 250kg per cow, but in turn the yield increased by 275 litres per cow which on its own wouldn’t justify the extra meal but due to the weather it was a must for overall cow welfare.This in turn reduced our milk from forage to 3235 litres from 3542 litres. This left us with 7426 litres per cow at 4.30 by, 3.44 pro with 72 SCC grazed day and night for 190 days. So care has to be taken to reduce the meal intake, not so much at the moment while margin over concentrate is 24 pence, but whenever milk price returns under 25 pence. Around the dairy door area has been a very unpleasant place to work for some time but finally we have got round to getting it concreted. With seven different falls to keep an eye on and high temperatures it was a challenge but with plenty of good help and minimal panicking it has ended up a successful looking job which will hopefully leave wet winter work more pleasant. We will continue to chip away at second cut in the meantime and by next time we will be thinking of cutting spring barley. 38

On Our Farm

August 7th 2018 Hugo Lee farms in partnership with his father, Guy, at Sandystones, near St Boswells. Arable crops of wheat, oilseed rape, malting barley and rye are grown, 400 Angus cattle are finished annually, 4000 organic hens produce eggs for Waitrose, 14,000 organic point of lay pullets reared each year and 60,000 pheasant poults are raised. Like many others around the country harvest is currently in full swing. So far yields have not been very exciting at all. The winter barely which went in very late due to the wet autumn and has struggled all year was terrible yielding just over 6t/ha with hardly any straw. Our first field of Alizze oilseed rape faired a little better at 3.6t/ha but it was still disappointing. However my 2.2ha YEN plot which was located in the middle of the same field did over 5t/ha. This plot received nothing different to the rest of the field except a couple of extra foliar feeds, it really highlights the impact a poor headland has on yield. I am hoping that the Winter Wheat and Spring Barleys will fair a little better. I hope to start cutting wheat by the end of the week. The last month has been busy with local shows- kicking off with the St Boswells show Cutting Alizze oilseed rape in late July. It was a fantastic day helped by the lovely weather. We had a house full of friends staying from down south who absolutely loved it especially the vintage tractor display, dog show and terrier racing. Congratulations to Robert Bruce from Pinnacle for winning the Longnewton Cup in the St Boswells stock and crop competition. He beat over seventeen other Border farmers to win this coveted prize which is a great achievement. The Border Union show the following weekend was also good fun despite the stifling heat on Friday! It was great to see so many of you on our stand and finally meet some of you for the first time. The highlight of the weekend had to be the red arrows flying directly over the Agrimart stand! Our new skid steer which we had on the stand at the show has been flat out on hire ever since it arrived on the farm. We are really pleased with the machine despite the different controls which have taken some getting used to. It can lift higher, lift more and has much better visibility than any of the previous machines. As grain prices continue to climb higher and higher with feed barley at over £190/t and feed wheat well over £200/t feeding livestock this winter is going to be very expensive indeed and bedding them is not going to be easy either with a shortage of straw. Some would argue that meat prices normally follow grain prices albeit after a delay. However, this I year I think it is going to be different - take the beef sector for example. The long dry summer has meant that burger/mince sales have gone through the roof but the expensive cuts are not being eaten and supermarkets are struggling to sell them. With the met office now saying that this dry weather pattern could last until October I can’t see meat prices increasing anytime soon. Good luck with the rest of harvest and I hope you get it all in before/if the weather finally does break.

Talking........ from Lincolnshire

August 6th 2018

Will Howe is an arable farmer from Sleaford, Lincolnshire. The soils are predominantly heavy. 365ha of cropping includes winter wheat, spring barley, winter oilseed rape, spring beans and managed fallow. He also manages a contracting business Thorpe Farming Ltd. What an extraordinarily sociable harvest this has been to date. I am yet to use the worklights on the combine, other than moving along the road where despite the combine being lit up like a Christmas tree and an escort vehicle with warning beacons the car drivers still seem mildly shocked to see you. One Porsche driver might well need his seats valeting as he came round a corner a little fast!! It is definitely the first harvest, and probably the last, where I have struck the combine up at 7am only to wish I had got out of bed a few hours earlier in a bid to cut the oilseed rape at sensible moisture levels. The oilseed rape yields have been disappointing with the average looking like being 3.6t/ha. The good land did very well but the heavy land, 60% of the area, suffered badly during the wet and cold spring and really dragged the average down. The wheats on the other hand have been a revelation. The average yield is going to be somewhere between 10-11t/ha and considering half the area was a third cereal after two spring barley crops I am amazed. Everyone in the area is baling the straw which is leading to the price collapsing, where I elected to chop it all as the risk of importing blackgrass is just too high. With my trusty Lexion 580 having nearly completed its eleventh harvest I have demoed CLAAS’s recommended replacement, a 750tt, with a view to possibly purchasing a 3-4 yr old one. The one thing it highlighted was the relatively poor sample I am able to get from our combine, but considering it has harvested 50,000t of grain during its life it is expected that the inner working are a little tired. So this winter the likelihood is I will replace the concave etc and keep it for a few more years. There goes another one... We have had some rain over harvest which Combining Siskin wheat managed to snap the beans, strip their foliage and stopped us cutting the wheat for a few days. It actually helped the wheat, it threshed a lot better afterwards, and the beans were always going to be a salvage job; but it was the heaviest rain I have ever seen. We had 12mm in literally a few minutes, and 28mm in total. We had been cutting wheat for the previous 2 days watching showers and storms go round us so after a quick chat with the trailer man we decided to embark on another tankfull. In my rear view mirrors all I could see was black clouds, and then all of a sudden wave after wave of seagulls overtook us flying just 20ft from the ground. Within 90 seconds the heavens opened and by the time the trailer got back to the yard the water was running out the back. Within 2 days it was like it had never happened. 42

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

August 2018 Ben Burbridge is a rural practice surveyor with Edwin Thompson LLP based in the Galashiels office. He provides professional advice to clients throughout southern Scotland on a range of rural issues. Utilities and Infrastructure There are few farms not subject to some form of wayleave or servitude in the Borders. Recently there has been an increasing demand for access requests from either utility companies or private individuals wishing to carry out work access to land to carry out work to the utilities network land. Requests have ranged from surveys for the installation of new water mains by Scottish Water, export lines for wind farm developers, installation of new telecommunications masts, new pipelines, routine maintenance of existing assets and upgrading of those nearing the end of their economic life. In each case the legislation or legal agreement that each party acts under is different and it is very important that landowners and occupiers understand both their rights and the rights of the utility company or private operator for managing these services and accessing land. Whilst statutory operators such as Scottish Power and Scottish Water have compulsory powers, others do not. It is not just the legal or contractual aspects of access that require thought, it is the practicalities and the longer term consequences on land management for example: Will the proposed route impact upon any future use or development of land? If the services are underground, are they buried at the correct depth to avoid agricultural cultivations? How will cut drains be repaired, and what can be done to protect against future drainage issues? What accommodation works are required to minimise disturbance, these need to be agreed well in advance of access being taken? And very importantly, what compensation payment will be involved? Please contact us if you are seeking advice on any utility work or are approached by anyone looking to use your land for their benefit.

August 4th 2018

Ian Mackenzie is an arable and dairy farmer from the Canterbury Plain in the South Island of New Zealand. He runs a number of fully irrigated intensive cropping farms, producing grain, vegetable and grass seeds with some stock finishing. July has been a great month. No rain and not too cold, the ground has dried out, the grass is growing and things look ok for the spring. William has bought a strip till drill and was able to re-drill most of the wheat that was drowned out in the autumn this week. Hopefully he’ll be able to get a fair bit more spring wheat in the ground in the next few days. He has also bought a new top-dresser with precision application capability and pre-set rate variability. So with GPS guidance on the drill and the fertiliser spreader, and yield mapping on the combines it looks like we are now in this new era of technology and precision farming. Very expensive toys On the dairy farm, (where things are much simpler), we have brought nearly half the cows home from their winter resort and calving is in full swing. Big Jase thinks 2/3 of the cows should calve in August which should mean milk production will get off to a much quicker start than the last couple of years. The fields have dried out and we have started to apply a bit of N fertiliser just to kick the grass away. The best part is we have the same good team working for us again this year. The forecasted milk price is looking ok for the season, although QUALITY CALVES SCOTLAND LTD we have to rely on Fonterra (our co-operative) for those forecasts. Fonterra has been scammed out of nearly a billion dollars by some Contact Murray 07759 380187 Chinese and so it looks unlikely that we will get much of a dividend We specialise in continental and native breed on the $800k co-op shares (1 share per kg MS) we have to own. heifers for suckler cows.

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

August 7th 2018

I am afraid I have let down Mr 10% badly. I handed over some of the winter crops in such poor condition that there is no way he could attain his target of improving output. He is often asking for my opinion, which I take as a complement, but I really feel he would be much better off seeking the views of neighbours who have always done a much better job than I at growing arable crops. This is one of the earliest harvests I can remember, and if the weather stays fair we should be finished by the end of August which is a first since we have lived north Guy Lee of the Border. What is down in yield is up in price, apart from oilseed rape, so financial outcome should work out satisfactorily even if the quantity is lacking. The last two weekends in July were dominated by our local shows. The Boswells Show is primarily an equine event, but the attendance of non-riding farmers has been maintained with the introduction of the Stock and Crop competition in 2003. Judging takes place in July with a steward take a judge round a particular class. With up to 20 entries of some crops it is a full day driving round the Borders countryside that we are so lucky to live in. It is always enjoyed especially when the judge is from outside the area. The following Friday and Saturday is the Border Union Show which is a much bigger event. It is a very important social occasion in the agricultural calendar and it is great that all the major traders support the show. Agrimart had its usual stand on the corner behind Archie Hume and although we don’t do a substantial amount of business it is a rewarding way to get feedback and meet our readers. The love of my life reached an age last month where she can now travel at a discounted rate on trains. To mark the occasion I bought her (unseen) a restored 1968 Morris Traveller. When we first met at Seale Hayne Agricultural College in 1976 I was driving one. For the past twenty years she has always yearned after one and so I finally relented. She is very easy to surprise never being suspicious or too inquisitive. Not only was the car a secret but so was one of the passengers who climbed out when we drove up to the house. Emma had flown up from London for the day. Myrtle, as the car has been named, had pride of place at the Border Union. Every passer-by had a story to tell about a ‘Traveller’, if they hadn’t owned one their parents or grandparents had. Until you park it next door to a modern car, one forgets how much smaller cars were then. Unfortunately the head gasket went as we drove to Kelso on the Saturday and Myrtle had to be towed in - much to her embarrassment. After four days it was fixed and she did not let my Myrtle’s proudest moment niece down as she was driven from her wedding by her new husband. 48

Timpendean Simon Bainbridge farms in Grass partnership with his wife Claire and his parents, Ivan and Elisabeth in Kale (4.87ha) N Northumberland. They run suckler beef, sheep and laying hen enterprises across 650 ha of mainly SDA and Rough moorland organically. At long last we have sown the Brassicas into the worst performing silage fields. This will provide feed for the lambs over the winter months. We have started spaning lambs to give some of the ewes who had a hard winter and spring a bit of a break. We drilled a field of Brassicas back in May, which surprisingly has done very well. The red clover is also proving to be very good in drought conditions. Deep rooting plants have come to the fore this year. Second cut silage (red clover) will be cut and baled next week. This will be to feed in-lamb ewes this coming winter. We will then take the whole-crop, which was under-sown with grass and clover. This will need to be re-seeded as it has succumbed to the drought. The hens are doing really well at the moment, with egg production at 95%. Keeping them happy and eating in this heat is a challenge. They have come into egg production fast which is inevitable given the time of year and the long days, so keeping them growing whilst also producing an egg is crucial. The litter condition is good, which has been helped by the dry weather. There is some feather loss at the base of their back, which is a concern, and this may be down to coming into lay so quickly. However we are keeping a careful eye on it. We are making a few improvements to one of the buildings that we spane calves into over the winter. These works will begin shortly. Currently the calves and cows feed opposite one another, however there isn’t enough space to feed daily without running on the feed of the other group. With a new feed trough being placed outside of the building and the side being opened up, we can get better ventilation and feed the dry cows in the building opposite daily which will hopefully save some feed this winter Requires good quality and keep better control of their condition. Bulls are coming off the heifers this week and the cows next week. They will have done their 42 and 49 days. straw and hay We are on with leading straw and have been fortunate with securing all the straw we need, however less fortunate in the cost of it. The bank balance will not be looking Straw always available for sale very positive by the end of this year. Livestock producers are certainly taking the pain this year with expensive feed and bedding, no grass. You can only hope that this is Tel: 01361 882233 reflected in the price of the end product.

SEAMILL HIMALAYAN RED NUTRIENT SALT PURE NATURAL FULL SPECTRUM MINERALS SOIL HEALTH

Conventional analysis, ‘that which is generally believed’ says a crop can be brought to harvest through a solution of only 12 or 18 minerals. Yet the facts show that our bodies need and use over 84 different minerals and micro nutrients for complete balanced health, this is well documented (minerals in the genetic code). Every year that we harvest crops from our fields, we are basically mining the minerals that feed our soils, our animals and ourselves. We need to replace these minerals in a complete, natural and balanced manner, so as to not leave deficiencies. If we do not replace everything we need to our soil we are not doing the job of crop production properly. We can add minerals to our soil but if they are in a form that is inorganic and also too large to pass through cell membranes - they cannot be metabolized and therefor are of little value (and subsequently washed away). It makes us overfed, undernourished, and very expensive. Acid derived chemicals may be in the soil but are not in an utilisable manner. The results produce not the nutrient-rich food we need and believe we are getting. Most of the UK’s soils are deficient in essential minerals, with farmers turning to mineral supplements to obtain their nutritional requirement. However, most mineral supplements on the market today have extremely low absorption rates and are not bioavailable. With very little value, they cannot be metabolized by our soils. When given the right materials in the right form, the soil can do amazing things to promote its own complete balanced health the way nature intended.
