HIGH ALERT Schmallenberg lambing scare Bird flu spreads across Britain

By Lauren Dean FARMERS have been warned to be on their guard following the spread of two devastating diseases. This week animal health chiefs predicted avian influenza was likely to continue to infect UK flocks, after new cases were confirmed in North Yorkshire and Dorset. Vets also highlighted the resurgence of Schmallenberg, saying they expected the virus would return ‘on a much bigger scale’ following its prevalence in 2012/13. MORE ON THIS STORY Page 3

MAKING DAIRY PAY

A milk vending machine has helped one family boost their dairy farm’s income.

Free-range milk brand launched rScheme aims to

boost dairy industry By Alex Black A NEW campaign to promote freerange milk is hoping to repeat the success of free-range eggs. Enjoy Milk, a new brand using milk from cows which have grazed outside ‘whenever possible’, aims not only to boost free-range sales but also the dairy industry as a whole. But farmers and industry representatives attending the launch at Becketts Farm, Birmingham, this week, questioned how effective the scheme could be without defining what qualified as ‘free-range’. Rob Ward, commercial trade communications lead for Enjoy Milk, said consumers would prefer milk from ‘outdoor’ cows but were unaware their milk may come from indoor cows due to marketing images of cows in fields. “It is about free ranging, fair trading 100 per cent British milk,” said Mr Ward, highlighting the increases free-range egg producers had seen in egg prices as well as sales from a campaign to promote free-range. There were also concerns about a negative impact on the image of non-branded milk.

With the black top, the idea is it shows we stand for the same values GEORGE ROSS Mr Ward said it was not about ‘knocking indoor cows’ but offering consumers a choice. He said the packaging, which incorporates a black top, would help consumers make that choice. Nick Hiscox, director of the Free Range Milk Marketing Board, said the campaign also aimed to ‘change the contract culture’. “Farmers would receive a fixed price for 12 months,” he said. “After eight months there is a review of the price or they can leave at that point with three months’ notice.” He said they would begin by adding the ‘black top’ to existing regional brands.

Cost The milk will be sold at about £1.25 for four pints. George Ross, farmer at Morthen Milk, has processed and sold milk directly from his Yorkshire dairy farm since last year due to unfair contracts and prices. He will add the black top to his own brand. “With the black top, the idea is it shows we stand for the same values,” he added. Mr Hiscox said the board was speaking with three processors and there was interest from retailers including Ocado. FGinsight.com

Richard Packer said the Government must begin pursuing trade deals with non-EU countries.

From page 1 AHDB DAIRY’S lead veterinary science expert Derek Armstrong said the UK was particularly at risk from Schmallenberg (SBV) due to its ‘sandwich position’ between Ireland and the Netherlands-Belgium border, where there have been a number of confirmed reports. SBV causes major abnormalities in newborn animals, including birth defects and twisted limbs in lambs and calves. It has been found in Devon, Dorset, Cornwall, Somerset, Co Laios and Co Cork. Mr Armstrong said: “It is expected SBV will be found in the later lambing season. Milder weather conditions earlier in November were a perfect platform for the midge-borne virus to breed and prolong the period of infection.” He said while a vaccine had been formulated, it was not licensed in the UK. The Animal and Plant Health Agency confirmed five outbreaks of the virus – four in lambs and one in a calf – but the National Sheep Association said despite circulation of more suspected cases, the ‘true picture of the problem’ could not be found until incidents were confirmed by post-mortem. It came as the Poultry Club of Great Britain hit back at suggestions made by NFU president Meurig Raymond that backyard poultry keepers were endangering commercial poultry businesses by not adhering to Defra prevention zone rules in place until February 28. Club president Jim Young said its members were ‘fully committed’ guardians of poultry and the fact the disease was in the wildfowl population across Europe was the biggest concern facing the industry. Egg prices were reported to have risen 6 per cent following increased demand and a fall in production across Europe due to bird flu outbreaks. Bird flu has been found in Lincolnshire, North Yorkshire, Dorset, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Devon, Merseyside, Leicestershire, Dumfries and Galloway, Carmarthenshire and Conwy.

UK food has ‘strong hand’ in Brexit talks rUK has £16.7bn

trade deficit with EU By Abi Kay THE UK’s position as a major player in world trade means it has a strong chance of shaping a trade deal with the EU which is beneficial for both sides. Sir Richard Packer, who was permanent secretary at the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food during the 1990s, told Farmers Guardian there was a ‘good chance’ of achieving a post-Brexit deal where agricultural goods could be traded – tariff free – with the EU in a similar arrangement to what is in place now. Mr Packer’s comments came as the Centre for Policy Studies published a report he had written, which said the UK’s large trade deficit with the EU in agriculture and food would give the Government a ‘strong hand to deploy’ in Brexit negotiations. Mr Packer pointed to figures which show the UK’s trade deficit – the amount by which the cost of imports exceeds the value of

EXCLUSIVE exports – in food, feed and drink was £20 billion a year, of which £16.7bn was with the EU. The report said: “The UK food market is very important for the EU and it is clear they will not be happy if charges at the level of the present EU external tariff are levied on their exports to the UK. “But this is exactly what will happen unless some special arrangement to stop it is adopted.

Compete “Otherwise, after Brexit, the EU would have to compete with others in the UK market, such as Israel, North African countries and so on. “Thus it is apparent the EU will be keener to secure special arrangements for agricultural trade than the UK.” Mr Packer said the Government must begin pursuing trade deals with non-EU countries now, but said many of the countries the UK may look to do deals with, such as Australia, New Zealand, the US and

Brazil, would seek ‘extensive agricultural concessions’, which could drive down UK prices of beef, lamb and dairy products. He noted World Trade Organisation rules would prevent the Government from offering compensation if this was the case. The report also claimed there would be scope for establishing better national rules in some policy areas, particularly genetic modification, and said Parliament would have to ensure EU laws in force at the point of Brexit continued to apply immediately afterwards to ‘avoid chaos’.

NFU Cymru has slammed the Welsh Government’s refreshed TB eradication programme in its response to the official consultation, refusing to accept further cattle controls without action being taken to ‘actively address’ the disease in wildlife. The hard-line stance will be a blow to the Government, which has already been accused of burying the issue by holding the consultation over Christmas and at the same time as a controversial consultation on nitrate vulnerable zones. NFU Cymru president Stephen James said: “All the feedback we have received shares one common theme – an overwhelming frustration bovine TB continues to wreak havoc for farming businesses and families across Wales, while the reservoir of disease in wildlife remains unaddressed. “Welsh Government has failed to implement a comprehensive

eradication strategy to tackle a disease which continues to claim the lives of cattle in their prime. “As each year goes by these cattle controls have increased. “Any suggestion of further controls without taking appropriate measures to tackle the disease in wildlife is incomprehensible from a farmer’s perspective.”

Concerns The union also raised concerns about the proposed six-monthly testing period in high TB areas, saying it would lead to higher costs, more health and safety issues and increase the likelihood tests would fall at inconvenient times, such as harvest or when cattle were heavily pregnant or calving. Other fears included adding further complication to livestock movements by splitting Wales into different TB risk zones – a part of the plan which was not under consultation. It was suggested the County

Industry triples support for action on antibiotics FUNDING for the Responsible Use of Medicines in Agriculture (RUMA) alliance has more than tripled this year which the alliance says recognises the importance farming could have in reducing antibiotic use across animal and human medicine. An increase in subscribers has offered support for a new five-year business plan which RUMA hoped

would build on the success of the 10 per cent reduction in UK farm animal use last year and encourage its work to ‘reduce, refine and replace’ the use of global antibiotics. RUMA chairman Gwyn Jones praised subscribers for realising farming’s contribution to tackling the issue and reducing the risk of resistance developing in the food chain.

Parish Holding (CPH) rationalisation programme be completed before the zones were created. The union is now calling for further discussion of the proposals with industry figures, including vets and livestock auctioneers. A Welsh Government spokesman said: “We welcome all evidence-based responses to our consultation on a refreshed TB eradication programme and we are grateful to NFU Cymru for their contribution. “We will consider all responses closely to ensure our future approach to eradicating this disease is proportionate, effective and works in the best interest of all parties.“

Commoners start receiving BPS payments FARMING groups have given a cautious welcome to the Rural Payments Agency’s announcement more than 70 per cent of commoners have now received a 2016 Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) payment. The progress was made following a promise from Defra Ministers to make BPS payments to as many commoners as possible by the end of 2016, even if there were unresolved issues with their 2015 claims. Julia Aglionby, executive director of the Foundation for Common Land, said the next phase was to update the control data on common land and make further payments where required. FGinsight.com

Crown Estate future ‘at risk’ rConcern over

estate’s future funding MANAGEMENT of the Crown Estate in Scotland must not be handed to local authorities because the ‘capital intensive occupation’ cannot survive without ‘adequate and continuous’ funding, the Scottish Tenant Farmers Association (STFA) has warned. The Scottish Government, which is due to take control of the estate from central Government in April, last week opened a consultation, due to run to March 29, to assess how assets should be used to benefit Scotland and ‘enhance value’. STFA director Angus McCall said members were concerned about proposals to give local authorities control of the land and hoped responsibility for the 37,000 hectares (91,400-acre) would remain with the Scottish Government. He said: “Farming is a capital

intensive occupation and we must ensure the landlord can input frequent investment to ensure farmers can continue a similar management to what they are used to.”

Investment NFU Scotland president Allan Bowie previously said investment from the Crown Estate into rural assets through funds generated by

other parts of the estate may not be possible if it became fragmented. But Mr McCall praised devolution for the potential to present ‘a lot of opportunities’ for tenant farmers to buy farms and for new entrants to get their foot on the farming ladder. “I know some who would like to buy farms on the Crown Estate and the Scottish Government has

been clear it would look at these proposals sympathetically,” Mr McCall added. Roseanna Cunningham, Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform, said the consultation was a ‘genuine opportunity to change the fabric of Scottish society’ and control of the Crown Estate should ‘rest with the people of Scotland’.

Efsa delays review of three neonicotinoids rBan costing EU

farmers €500 million By Lauren Dean THE anticipated review of three banned neonicotinoid pesticides has been delayed by the European Food Safety Authority (Efsa) until autumn this year. It came as an EU report found the ban on the pesticides had cost farmers almost £500 million. The EU food watchdog had been due to publish a re-evaluation of the scientific evidence of the safety of each pesticide to bees this month. Efsa said it needed more time to consider the ‘very large amount of information received during the call for data’.

Yield decrease NFU vice-president Guy Smith was in Brussels this week to hear evidence from the EU’s Humboldt Forum for Food and Agriculture (HFFA) report which showed a decrease in yield of about 5 per cent and up to 22 per cent in places, costing EU farmers €500m (£430m). Mr Smith said: “There was also a negative impact on quality. It was a timely reminder that the ban is impacting on the competitive position of EU farmers when the EU is importing huge amounts of proteins and oilseeds

from countries where these crop protection materials remain widely used.” Last week, Friends of the Earth published a report calling for neonicotinoid pesticides to be banned from use on wheat ‘to protect bees, birds and butterflies’.

Tough times ask for a new kind of reliability.

Mr Packham posted a tweet which linked to a petition calling for a moratorium on the hunting of ‘critically declining’ wading birds. But farmers reacted by accusing Mr Packham of ‘deliberately spreading lies’. They pointed out farmers look after lapwings as part of the Higher Level Stewardship and Countryside Stewardship schemes, leading to an apology from Mr Packham. FGinsight.com

POLITICS & RED TAPE

Fight over endocrine disruptors continues rConcern over

Commission’s proposal

By Abi Kay THE European Commission has found itself unable to secure the backing of member states for its proposals on endocrine disruptors, throwing the future of pesticides in the EU into doubt again. Endocrine disruptors are chemicals which, at certain doses, can interfere

with endocrine, or hormone, systems. A number of important crop protection active substances could be defined as endocrine disruptors. They are also found in plastics and cosmetics. Environmental groups claim they pose a risk to human health. A World Health Organisation report from 2012 said there was ‘mounting evidence for effects of these chemicals on thyroid function, brain function, obesity and metabolism and insulin and glucose homeostasis’. The Commission hoped to

get agreement from member states before Christmas on a definition of endocrine disruptors and an exception to the rule banning them – once defined – in the EU’s 2009 pesticides regulation.

Disagreement Because of the disagreement surrounding the proposal, the Commission chose to split it into two parts which would be voted on separately. The first part would focus on a definition, which was controversial in

itself. The European Crop Protection Association (ECPA) felt the chosen text would ban safe chemicals because it did not take potency – the scientific measurement of the chemical’s ability to produce a negative effect – into consideration. Graeme Taylor, ECPA’s director of public affairs, said: “The Commission’s continued refusal to include hazard characterisation elements, in particular potency, makes it impossible to see how they will identify substances which pose a real concern from those which do not.” Emma Hamer, senior plant health adviser at the NFU, said: “The definition being proposed would not allow substances which are a real danger to be differentiated from those which are not. “Exposure to hazard, potency, how often a chemical is used and what mitigation measures can be put in place, all need to be taken into account.”

THE second part of the proposal focused on the derogation, which was similarly divisive. The European Parliament and a number of member states, particularly Scandinavian countries, were unhappy with the exception, which would allow endocrine disruptors to continue to be used if there was ‘negligible exposure’ to them. They claimed the Commission was acting illegally in proposing an exception because it was only required by law to come up with a definition. Environmental groups said the exception would allow harmful chemicals to stay on the market. Ms Hamer said: “We are not happy with legislation by derogation because it prevents a level playing field. “Neonicotinoids are a good example of this. In some countries they have been used and in others they have not, but at least derogation would have allowed for some discretion. “We were more concerned the Commission separated the two because we could have been in a situation where the definition went

forward but the derogation was blocked.” In the event, the Commission did not call a formal vote on either part of the proposal as there was no qualified majority in the ‘indicative vote’. A UK Crop Protection Association spokesman said: “It is not surprising the Standing Committee was unable to reach a decision. There was already a great deal of confusion ahead of the meeting and the Commission’s decision to split the proposal into two only increased it.”

Little hope The issue will be discussed again on January 22-23, but there is little hope of a quick fix, as the EU has been trying to regulate for three years. Ms Hamer said: “The fact an agreement could not be reached shows nobody is happy. “Non-governmental organisations are not happy, farmers are not happy and the Commission is not happy. “We want to see safeguards for human health and the environment, but we also need to have plant protection products farmers can use.”

Farmers’ well-being and health is most crucial issue

And finally... Making local connections in order to sell produce are at the heart of the great features on p20 and p119 this week. Check them out.

AS political debates and posturing ramp up within agriculture, we must never forget that the day-today realities of farming remain the same as ever. Some may have kicked off the year with high-minded discussions about the ramifications of Brexit and what Defra’s plan might be, but out on farms across the UK the physical work is still being done, and not in cosy conference halls. It is a time of year when we are on the upward curve after the winter solstice and the days are slowly drawing out. However, the land remains hard, the days short and with a cold snap on the way, many of the older, infirm or simply unwell members of the farming community will be feeling it more than most. This week’s new series in Beyond the Farm Gate (p132) looking at the health and wellness of the farming community reveals how farmers often have an ingrained self-image that, as people who do physical jobs, they will be the last ones to be struck down by illness. But Wayne Smith’s inspir-

OPINION

ational fight against bowel cancer shows us for all the fear such diagnoses may provoke, early identification and treatment are absolutely key. It is the same for those living with less serious but nonetheless painful ailments, such as arthritic hips or knees. Being hunkered down in a cold and damp farmhouse while swinging an arthritic leg may seem like a form of stoicism but, in reality, it is simply ignoring the problem when a trip to the doctors would be the easiest and most important step on the way to treatment.

Important As a community, we know we are not always good when it comes to talking about our problems, especially around physical or mental health, but it is something we need to be aware of. There might be many major political issues for the industry to focus on at the moment, but nothing is more important than the intrinsic health and well-being of the farming community.

Patrick Holden, founding director, Sustainable Food Trust

Experience should lead farm debate FOR me, one of the most inspiring aspects of last week’s Oxford Real Farming Conference (ORFC) was the predominance of practical farmers in the speaker line-up. Some delegates quite literally crossed the road from the other, better-known conference, swelling numbers to 800 on both days. However, there was one session, organised by the Eating Better Alliance, focusing on the role of livestock farming post-Brexit, which upset the mainly producer audience every bit as much as it would have done at the Oxford Farming Conference. It was not so much an objection to the alliance’s overall message the UK needed to eat less but better meat – endorsed by its 39 members, including the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, WWFUK, Friends of the Earth, Oxfam, the Soil Association and the Vegetarian Society – which jarred with most of the audience. 10 | JANUARY 13 2017

Rather, it was their misguided conclusions and policy advocacy, which I felt was a result of the fact none of the four speakers had any experience of livestock production. As a consequence, not only was much of the ‘evidence’ unbalanced or inaccurate, but there was also serious muddled thinking. Specifically, in urging consumers to cut consumption of all animalbased foods dramatically, they seem unaware they have been contributing to the destruction of equatorial rainforests, from where an increasingly high proportion of dietary fats come these days, and hastening the demise of the UK’s traditional grassbased livestock sector. While the Sustainable Food Trust shares important objectives with most of these organisations, we eventually withdrew from the alliance in 2015 when it became clear policy stances of this nature were more likely to be part of the

problem than the solution, whether the metrics of measurement be greenhouse gas emissions, environmental pollution, soil degradation, biodiversity loss, animal welfare or dietary impact on public health. Misguided campaigns such as this need to be opposed as they are fuelling the rise of vegetarianism and the ever-increasing consumption of chicken at the expense of beef and lamb which can be produced from our own resources,

namely from 70 per cent of the UK’s farmland which is under grass for sound agronomic and environmental reasons. According to a Mintel survey in 2013, 12 per cent of the UK population and 20 per cent of those aged 16-24 now eat no meat. It has been estimated those under 30 eat on average just 15g of lamb a week, a dietary choice which, if continued, will decimate UK sheep production even more than the potential loss of free access to the EU single market. But to help see off such campaigns and the equally well-meaning but misguided George Monbiot, livestock farmers will need to maximise use of grass, reduce dependence on imported livestock feeds, antibiotics and nitrogen, and avoid over-stocking whenever possible.

Wales drops its organic support THE Welsh Government has withdrawn support for organics in Wales and although for many this news will not be counted as being a great loss to Welsh agriculture, it really is. I have been an organic farmer for the best part of 15 years and am an organic farmer by conviction, because I can see applying organic principles to agriculture delivers many benefits. As Wales considers expanding its nitrate vulnerable zone area, organic farming easily conforms with the requirement to reduce application of N to no more than 170kg N/hectare, and instead of axing the organic scheme, it should be offered to farmers in the zones as an alternative method of managing the farm. Prevention is invariably cheaper than cure, so a payment/ha for organic farmers would be cost effective, as it would quickly reduce the amount of artificial fertiliser washed into watercourses and rivers. I believe the Welsh Government has dropped its support for organics because the sector has dwindled so dramatically over the last five years or so, and a reason for the significant reduction in numbers of organic farmers is probably the attitude of certification bodies towards licensees. I have been a vocal critic of these bodies and it has got me into deep water, simply because they often consider themselves to be beyond contradiction.

CCTV slaughter I AM writing in response to your article ‘Mandatory slaughterhouse CCTV ruled out’ (FG, page 2, December 23). I am a retired livestock farmer. When I sold the animals I bred and reared into the food chain, I had to accept they were slaughtered correctly. It is rumoured this is not always the case. The Welsh Government has dismissed the use of CCTV in slaughterhouses without sufficient reason. The police use CCTV to good effect, checking the speed of vehicles and checking if people have paid their insurance and car tax. It is also used in investigating crimes, especially in built-up areas. The use of CCTV in slaughterhouses to film the handling and slaughter process should be a sufficient deterrent to prevent animal abuse. It would demonstrate that most slaughterhouse staff work to the expected high standards. But if animal abuse is revealed, CCTV would gather evidence against persistent offenders so the evidence can be given to the Crown Prosecution Service to take the necessary action. I fear the Welsh Assembly does not

wish to get involved because of ritual slaughtering carried out by some religious groups in this country which is anathema to the general farming community. We pride ourselves on being a tolerant nation which is the foundation of our culture. I am not very tolerant of bad practices in slaughterhouses. Colin Evans, Cardigan, West Wales.

TB testing truths MANY people ask for a ‘better’ test for TB, quoting low sensitivity of the single intradermal comparative cervical test, or ‘skin test’ as we all call it. Because it has a low sensitivity, it misses some infected animals. However, because so many tests are done on a farm and an area basis, infected areas are soon discovered. When this happens, many thousands of tests are performed in that area, as well as repeatedly on infected premises, which overcomes this issue of sensitivity from an eradication point of view, as the test is given many opportunities to identify TB presence. This is how the test is successfully used across the world and indeed was how our country virtually eradicated TB when we were managing badger population density at the same time. However, what is needed more than sensitivity is specificity, and this is where the skin test is the best test. It has a specificity of 99.98 per cent, which means only one-in-5,000

positive test results are not positive. If we chose a more sensitive test, we would reduce the specificity. If we reduced specificity to 99.5 per cent, which still sounds good, one-in-200 positive results would be incorrect. An area with perfectly clean cattle in it, or even a farm, would never test clear because of the increased false positive rate. The skin test can be interpreted in a more sensitive (as in misses less positives), and consequently less specific way, by altering skin thickness thresholds – known as ‘severe interpretation’. Also, the gamma interferon blood test is more sensitive and less specific. This alteration in testing is appropriate when you know infection resides in a herd as you want to ensure you find more truly positive cattle quickly, so you ‘accept’ more false positives during that phase. Using a combination of the skin test, gamma interferon blood testing and severe interpretation, areas without wildlife infection are rapidly cleared of infected cattle throughout the world. Farmers get frustrated when positively testing cattle do not show up with lesions. This is because nobody is explaining the test result to them properly, or because myths get perpetuated by people unwilling to understand. There is no need for any new cattle tests. We just need better education of stakeholders by the Government and by practising vets. Den Leonard, Lambert, Leonard and May. JANUARY 13 2017 | 11

NEWS BREXIT NEGOTIATIONS Prime Minister Theresa May has come under fire for refusing to provide clarity on Brexit. Abi Kay explores what we know about the Government’s position.

Trade and the EU single market – what we know

T

heresa May caused a storm last weekend when she said the UK could not hold on to ‘bits’ of its membership of the EU – implying she wanted to leave the single market. To readers of Farmers Guardian, this news may not have been a surprise. In September we revealed Mrs May’s private admission to NFU president Meurig Raymond that staying in the single market would be ‘difficult’. But no-one else should have been taken aback either. Mrs May has already said many times she intends to ‘take back control’ of immigration and law. This means putting an end to freedom of movement and leaving the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. Both of these pledges would place the UK firmly outside the single market.

LEAVING the single market does not mean the UK would be unable to trade with the EU. Many countries have access to buy and sell in the single market without membership. What matters is how good the access is.

PICTURE: GETTY

Tariffs

TAKING BACK CONTROL OF LAW MEMBERS of the single market – unlike countries with free trade agreements – must accept EU control over domestic technical standards, meaning they are obliged to abide by European Court of Justice (ECJ) decisions. The job of the ECJ is to ensure

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE UK?

Theresa May said the UK cannot expect to keep parts of its EU membership.

It seems almost certain tariffs will be introduced after Brexit. Defra Secretary Andrea Leadsom told Farmers Guardian she was hoping for ‘low tariff access to the single market’ – but new non-tariff barriers to trade are also likely to be created as UK and EU regulations begin to move away from each other.

TACKLING IMMIGRATION

European law is interpreted and applied in the same way in every member state.

Rulings If the UK does not accept the rulings of the ECJ, it cannot retain its single market membership.

THE single market is much more than a free trade zone; it is a single regulatory regime. Free movement of goods, capital, services and people are its foundation. This is why, as German Chancellor Angela Merkel made clear, the ‘four freedoms’ are

regarded as indivisible on the continent. As things currently stand, it is not possible to have free movement of goods, capital and services – the essence of single market membership – without allowing free movement of people.

By Alex Black FARMERS have been warned not to let inefficiencies ‘creep back in’, as commodity prices improve during the start of 2017. Dan Knight, director of rural affairs at farm accountant Old Mill, said while the past year had been tough, it had pushed farmers to find cost efficient drawn-up succession plans and reviewed their business strategies. As commodity prices have started to increase, he advised farmers to take the opportunity to look longer term.

How to make a success of your business on the world stage rTraceability and

Businesses should make the most of new global opportunities.

quality key for importers By Abi Kay BUSINESSES considering tapping into the global marketplace have been urged to grasp the new opportunities afforded by Brexit. Farmers attending last week’s Oxford Farming Conference were given a first hand account of how they could make their businesses successful on the world stage. Two business leaders, Ali Capper of Stocks Hops and Fruit Farm, and Jack Hamilton of Mash Direct, told the audience how they built their brands and began exporting across the globe. Provenance, traceability and quality products were recurring themes of both talks, but good branding and a willingness to network were seen as equally important when it came to selling on world markets. Mrs Capper, who supplies major domestic retailers such as Tesco and Marks and Spencer and also sells in the US and Asian markets, said: “To break into the world market you need to collaborate with the rest of your industry; have loads of energy; the ability to turn problems into solutions; clear unique selling points;

good branding and marketing; [a willingness] to travel; to engage and to learn to export and sell.” Mr Hamilton manages Mash Direct’s sales, which reach all the way to the Saudia Arabia and Dubai.

Simple He said the key to the company’s success was very simple – offering a wide variety of potato products which were not overly processed, unlike their competitors. He told the audience British products were very highly regarded in the

United Arab Emirates and having the Red Tractor logo meant you could charge a premium, but having local people on the ground to explain key brand messages was vital. Asked to give advice to others considering exporting, Mr Hamilton said: “Keep in mind which time zones you are targeting. Target one marketplace, make it work and then move on to the next one.” He also recommended going to trade fairs, bearing in mind capacity and volumes to ensure customer demand can be met and entering awards.

Norwegian ‘option’ shows possible future for farming outside the CAP FARMERS could favour a more protectionist Norwegian-style trade policy post-Brexit, according to speakers at the Oxford Real Farming Conference. During the run up to the EU referendum, the Norwegian model was touted as one alternative for the UK’s relationship with the EU post-Brexit. Norway is not part of the EU, but is part of the European Economic Area (EEA) and has a trade deal with the EU. Simon Fairlie, Monkton Wyld Court micro dairy, said: “What is in-

teresting in Norway is agriculture and fisheries are excepted from the deal which allows tariffs and control of exports and imports. “This way ahead seems to be favoured by most of agriculture.”

Protectionist Norway operates a more protectionist policy to support its domestic farming system. Imports of some agricultural products such as meat, milk, and cereals into Norway are subject to high tariffs

while products not produced in Norway are subject to lower or no tariffs. Stein Brubaek, cheesemaker and leader of the international committee in the Norwegian small farms union, said the system developed following the 1930s when many farms went bankrupt. “They made a new law saying all products in Norway should be sold on the Norwegian market,” he said. “There should be no overproduction. We have campaigns to make sure this is sold within Norway.

“We import if there is a shortage. When there was a shortage of butter, the co-op was given the responsibility to supply the market with butter.” For the system to work, Mr Brubaek suggested at least 50 per cent of the market needed to be controlled by co-operatives. “It is also dependent on strong farmers’ unions which have the right to negotiate with the Government every year,” he said. However, he added the system was ‘not perfect’ and there was pressure from EU over-production to open the market.

Farmland values ‘more polarised’ than ever before rLand price correlates

with farm incomes By Alex Black

Arable land values were 4 per cent lower at the end of 2016 than in 2015.

FARMLAND prices have become ‘more polarised than in living memory’, as the highest prices reach more than double the lowest.

Average arable land values were 4 per cent lower at the end of 2016 than in 2015, but Michael Fiddes, head of estates and farm agency at Strutt and Parker, said it ‘masks a huge range’ in prices. He highlighted two similar 61-hectare (150-acre) blocks of arable land in the South West of England, with one selling at about £19,768/ha (£8,000/acre) and the other at £37,066/ha (£15,000/acre). He said: “There is still strength in the market. Just under half of arable land sold in England last year was sold for £10,000/acre or more, which is one of the largest proportions ever. “But demand, like prices, is highly variable, and almost 40 per cent of land marketed in 2016 remains available.”

EU referendum Mr Fiddes said the result of the EU referendum had a more muted effect on the market than some anticipated, but had caused uncertainty. He said: “However, the big story in the farmland market has continued to be the impact of the squeeze on farm profits as a result of low commodity prices. “With about half of all farmland transactions being ‘farmer-led’, it is not surprising that as farm incomes have dropped, so have average land prices.” The south west of England is the region with the widest price difference for arable land. Charlie Evans, partner in the south west region, said: “One of the biggest changes we have seen over the past year is there are now usually only one or two buyers for a farm. “Properties which are best in their class still attract interest from further afield, but in most instances, the eventual buyers are neighbours looking to increase acreage.”

an offer to buy out the shares it does not own. Mr Walkland said: “Mengniu, Arla and other companies will all be growing consumption in China. This can only be good for exporters, especially with the UK cuddling up to the likes of China and anyone else as a result of Brexit.” Given the current volatile climate, he said farmers had to decide whether they would be better off ‘riding the volatility wave’ with

larger companies, such as Arla and Muller. He suggested companies which had invested in markets globally could be more secure but smaller companies which may be more volatile could ‘nip into the safety of port and out again faster’. “We have seen this with the rate of change of milk price increases recently, with smaller companies able to react faster than the big ones,” Mr Walkland said.

Edited by Danusia Osiowy – 01772 799 413 – danusia.osiowy@fginsight.com

With a long-held love for Beef Shorthorns, Rob and Penny Paisley have been making the most of the breed’s renewed popularity. Marie-Claire Kidd reports.

Local focus driving West Moor House Farm’s sales

W

est Moor House Farm is a windswept place for much of the year. Characterised by grouse moorland, jackdaws and breeding waders, this upland farm comprises 130 hectares (320 acres) of marginal grassland and 220ha (540 acres) of heather moorland. The Paisley family arrived here as tenants 56 years ago, and Rob Paisley, who runs the business with his wife Penny, was born here. With help from Rob’s parents Paula and Joe, the couple breed pedigree Beef Shorthorn cattle, a hill flock of pure-bred Swaledale sheep, a commercial flock of Texel cross ewes and two rare breed flocks of Greyface Dartmoor and Welsh Mountain Badger Face sheep.

Rare breed Over the past 15 years, Rob and Penny have steered the business towards rare breed beef and lamb, and sales of live animals. Used to keeping 700 commercial ewes, they have reduced the number of sheep they breed as butchers’ lambs and increased the number of cows and rare breed

We kept Shorthorns for eight years before we went pedigree. We were crossing pedigree cattle and thought this was a waste ROB PAISLEY sheep they graze, many of which they sell as breeding stock. Rob says: “We dropped the number of sheep to make way for the cattle. There was more interest in the cattle for us. My mum always liked Beef Shorthorns and we derive a lot of pleasure from keeping them. “It evolved really. We kept Shorthorns for eight years before we went pedigree. We were crossing pedigree cattle and thought this was a waste.

Penny and Rob Paisley have focused on selling direct to customers.

“The sheep were not paying particularly well and this was a key driver. It was a chance to increase our income.” Today the in-bye flock, grazed on enclosed land below the moorland, comprises 230 Texel cross Mule ewes which lamb from mid-March onwards. They are tupped by Texel or Charollais tups to produce prime lambs for sale from July onwards. They are mainly sold deadweight to Woodheads, Colne, destined for Morrisons or Rowland Agar, Ilkley, an abattoir business which markets locally produced meat to butchers through its Three Dales brand.

The hill flock consists of 160 purebred Swaledale ewes, which start lambing at the beginning of April. Ewe lambs are used for replacements and male lambs for sale direct to the public as prime lambs from October to February. Penny bought a small flock of Greyface Dartmoor ewes in 2011. “They are a biddable breed with lots of character and wool,” she says. “Nobody can walk past them

Penny Paisley says there is plenty of demand for Greyface Dartmoor sheep.

without saying ‘what are they? Aren’t they sweet?’ They are incredibly cute. “There’s a good demand for them from smallholders and people with children wanting to show. Their heavy lustre wooled fleeces are sought after by the crafting community.” But, she adds, it would be a mistake to assume they can thrive on the moors of Yorkshire because their name suggests they are a moorland breed. “They can stand the weather but they like good grass. I think they only go on the moors for a day trip in August.” The family shows their Greyface Dartmoors at the breed society’s northern show at Ripley, and at Malham Show every August Bank Holiday. In 2012 Paula lambed her flock of Welsh Mountain Badger Face ewes for the first time. Rob says: “They are inquisitive sheep. The Badger Face lambs are beautiful eating. They’re fantastic milky mothers, attentive to their lambs and easy to keep.” The rearing of Beef Shorthorn cattle has become a major part of

the farm business. Reared traditionally on grass, these animals are sold as breeding stock or slaughtered for sale directly to customers. The Paisleys largely rely on word of mouth for meat sales. “The whole ethos of direct selling is to cut out the middle man and sell a good quality product at good value,” Rob says. “We want repeat custom. Some of our customers have been buying from us since we started. We’re always on the lookout for new customers but we don’t push it because what we can supply is very limited.”

Business Butcher Andrew Seed of Brimham Rocks, Pateley Bridge, dedicates his business to farmers who sell direct to their customers. He hangs the Paisleys’ beef for at least 17 days before cutting and vacuum packing it. The packs are labelled, boxed and delivered locally or shipped round the country. Rob says: “We usually supply packs of 10 or 20kg, allowing us to provide the full range of cuts in each pack. These include fillet, rump and sirloin steaks, roasting

Badger Face lambs are beautiful eating. They’re fantastic milky mothers, attentive to their lambs and easy to keep ROB PAISLEY joints, pot roasts, rib-eye steak, braising steak, stewing meat, mince and sausages.” Beef Shorthorns have enjoyed a surge in popularity in the past decade and the Paisleys have discovered an enthusiastic market for their breeding stock. They sell heifers at the breed society’s sale at Skipton, and a small number of bulls privately off-farm. “There’s good demand for quality breeding females. There are a lot of people coming into the breed.

We got in quite early and it took off after we got in. “People like them because they produce beef off grass. Docility is also a major selling point for people, and it is for us dealing with them.” Rob is a former director of the Beef Shorthorn Cattle Society and is still an active member, hosting a visit from the society’s Scottish Club in September. He admits the family gets attached to its animals.

Training “Lots of farmers have a favourite or a pet. When you’ve had cows for 10 or 12 years it isn’t easy to let them go. We try and make sure they have a good life. “Maybe we’re soft but when you’re halter training and in daily contact with them, you do build relationships. “I don’t know a decent farmer who doesn’t have a favourite.” Penny’s writings and photographs of farm life can be seen on the farm’s Facebook account – the family’s way of sharing their experiences with customers and the non-farming public.

Rob Paisley says Welsh Mountain Badger Face sheep are easy to keep.

Pedigree Shorthorns With the popularity of Beef Shorthorns soaring, there is plenty of interest in the Paisleys’ breeding stock.

She documents the changing seasons, the vagaries of the weather, the antics of animals both wild and domesticated and observations of nature. She spins entertaining stories of Jackdaws in the wardrobe, Red Kites causing the hens to run for cover and the wading birds which nest on-farm. It’s clear the couple embrace the environment as part of their business and the farm has entered the Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) scheme in an attempt to slow the decline of upland breeding populations of waders and farmland species. “It’s important to us financially and as a way of farming,” Rob explains. The moorland is owned by a grouse shooting syndicate which Badger Face ewes make good mothers.

shares its management with the Paisleys. “We have the grazing rights. They manage the grouse habitat and we manage the grazing and the walls,” says Rob. They observe maximum stock levels on the moors, taking stock off potential nesting sites at nesting times. Sheep are wintered on the moor, unlike on many HLS farms.

Grass Rob says: “We’re trying to improve the grassland and maximise grass production, not through fertilisers but through good management. We’re doing a lot of sward lifting and subsoiling to break up any pans and get better drainage. “Most of the farm has been drained but the water isn’t reaching the drains. We have to do a lot Rob’s parents, Paula and Joe Paisley, are still active on farm.

of stone picking, which is labour intensive, but it’s worth it because the drainage is much improved. “The water drains away quicker. Grass growth is one-third better with no extra inputs. We’re able to keep stock on it for longer. It starts growing earlier because the soil warms up quicker.” There is a lot to do at the farm and, as Rob’s parents get older, the family is preparing to employ reinforcements. “We’re contemplating getting some part-time help,” Rob says. “My parents are beyond retirement age and although they are still active, their role has reduced quite a lot. “We love what we do but like lots of family farms we’re tied to it all the time. It’s finding a balance where you can have a break.”

The West Moor herd of Beef Shorthorns has built up steadily since the first cows arrived in the early 1990s Mainly dairy or dual-purpose types from the Otterington and Hauxwell herds, the cows were added to and crossed with Limousin and British Blue bulls The farm was producing store cattle, but the Paisleys decided to start breeding these cattle pure and bought their first Beef Shorthorn bull from Upsall in 1995 Jungle Chief of Upsall was a white bull and bred well on the Paisleys’ red cows, producing the mainstay of the herd. In 1998, at the October bull sales, the family bought Leader of Craigeassie, a roan bull out of a Parkfield cow by Scotsdale Tradition The herd has grown more quickly over the last few years, with an autumn-calving herd started in 2001 In summer 2004 Warpath of Upsall joined the herd, which Rob describes as ‘a stretchy bull with a large frame and good topline’ In spring 2008 the Paisleys bought Glenisla Zetor, by the successful Fearn Wyvis out of Glenisla Eva Broadhooks P429, at Perth. Rob says: “He was a powerful red bull with a tremendous temperament which proved an excellent buy.” The herd now has about 30 cows with followers, a number which suits the land and buildings at West Moor.

Securing marginal improvements to boost business performance is the aim of the new AHDB Cereals monitor farm host in Cheshire. Chloe Palmer finds out more.

Seeking small improvements to achieve a big difference

R

obert Cross, aged just 32, has already developed a clear vision of what he wants for the future of his farming business and working alongside his father, John, he is making good progress towards it. “I want to focus on everything I do to achieve marginal gains. If I can improve everything by 1 per cent, it can make a big difference,” Mr Cross says. He hopes to make best use of the advice provided as part of the monitor farm network and benchmarking different aspects of the farm’s performance is of particular interest. The Cross family has farmed Clifflane Farm since 1950 when Robert’s grandfather moved to the area. At the time it extended to 52 hectares (130 acres) and was scattered as separate blocks. Now the Cross family farms a total

of 304ha (750 acres). This expansion has been gradual and sporadic, as and when blocks of suitable land become available to rent or buy. Mr Cross joined the family farm in 2007 after graduating from Harper Adams University with a degree in agriculture. Almost immediately his father allowed him a significant proportion of the decision-making responsibility. “Dad continues to look after the financial management of the business, but now I have my BASIS agronomy qualification I make most of the decisions in relation to cropping and grain trading. “We have a very good working relationship and each morning we talk through what we are going to do in the day. We share problems because it is always good to have two heads to come up with a solution,” Mr Cross says. Rotations are key to addressing the problem of diseases and weeds and

Farm facts Clifflane Farm is located near Grappenhall on the outskirts of Warrington, Cheshire. It has recently been chosen as the new AHDB Cereals monitor farm for north west England Robert Cross farms in partnership with his father, John,

managing the 304ha (750-acre) all arable farm. The seven-year rotation includes three first winter wheats (150ha/370 acres), winter barley (48.5ha/120 acres), winter oats (29ha/72 acres), spring beans (32ha/80 acres) and oilseed rape (32ha/80 acres)

at Clifflane Farm the seven-year rotation includes three first wheats. “The rotation includes winter barley, winter wheat, winter oats, spring beans and oilseed rape. We find the length of our rotation eliminates many problems which can cause potential yield penalties as well as enabling us to spread workload. “Spring beans and oilseed rape work well as break crops, but OSR can act as a host for sclerotinia, so we split these crops so they are grown five years apart. Growing different crops also spreads the risk for us.”

Soils The variability of the soils across the farm influences cropping, cultivations and timing. “The soil is hugely variable across the farm and we are in a high rainfall area so if we have showery weather, sometimes we are as well to keep the machines in the shed.” Mr Cross is well placed to tackle weed and pest problems on the farm after passing his BASIS agronomy examinations in summer 2015. “Our agronomist retired a few

If I can improve everything by 1 per cent, it can make a big difference ROBERT CROSS years ago and when I looked into the options available to us I felt we would not be receiving the hands-on level of service we were used to. So I decided to do the BASIS course.” He now adopts an integrated pest management approach across the whole farm and as a consequence is using less pesticide, he says. “I spend a lot of time crop walking to assess thresholds for various pests and I find there is rarely a justification to spray because we often record such low numbers.” One of the biggest blessings for the farm is the absence of blackgrass, but this is partly down to the Robert Cross is keen to benchmark different aspects of the farm’s performance.

Early entry Winter barley always features in the rotation as it provides an early entry for OSR. It is all sold as feed barley and the straw is in high demand. “The land here needs more organic matter and I chop the wheat straw, but chopping barley straw seems like sacrilege in Cheshire. “The biggest problem with the barley can be applying the nitrogen early enough in spring. I plan to apply half the nitrogen early and half later this year as this is the recommendation in the new RB209.” The inclusion of winter oats in the rotation helps to spread the workload and is also an effective break crop to reduce the incidence of take-all in the following wheat crop. The oats have also proved relatively marketable, says Mr Cross. “There is usually plenty of demand for oats in this area. This year we have sold to Mornflake in Crewe, but there are other outlets in the area so we have many options. “They are a relatively low input crop, only needing 125kg of nitrogen and in some years they can give us the best margin of any crop we grow. “My only concern with oats is that we are not seeing the increases in yields we are seeing in other crops due to a lack of investment in research in new oat varieties,” he says. The only spring cropping on-farm is spring beans, which are included in the farm’s Ecological Focus Area (EFA) requirements. Mr Cross fears it will be uneconomic to grow beans in the future when the proposed spray restrictions are introduced.

2016 yields Wheat: 8t/ha (3.25t/acre) – KWS Lili, Graham and Crusoe Winter barley: 7.4t/ha (3t/ acre) – KWS Funky and Bazooka Winter oats: 7.2t/ha (2.9t/ acre) – RGT Lineout Oilseed rape: 3.7t/ha (1.5t/ acre) – Incentive (hybrid) Spring beans: 5.6t/ha (2.25t/acre) – Fanfare

“We may look at growing cover crops for our EFA because I think they will work well on this farm prior to spring cropping as the land will benefit from the organic matter. I will have to think carefully about what we include in the mix as it is vital it does not cause problems with volunteers in the following crop.” He is constantly looking at how he can use new developments to reduce costs or improve yields. As part of the monitor farm package of advice, he has taken up precision soil analysis and the maps produced have shown significant variation across individual fields. “We have tested a third of the farm, so I can think about the information it has provided and how we will make use of it. The results have shown me where the land would benefit from manure and extra phosphate and potash. “I do not think the technique will save me much money initially but it will ensure we are putting the nutrients in the right place,” he says. Examining what they are doing on-farm and why they are doing it is key to continual improvement, he adds. “We think about what we are spending too much time doing and then think what we need to do to save time. So we have bought a new drier and a new sprayer and we hope both investments will pay dividends.” Further expansion is planned to achieve sufficient scale, but Mr Cross acknowledges there is a limit to what he and his father can manage alone. Preparing for Brexit is also high up his agenda, with plans already afoot. “We are submitting a planning application for more office accommodation and business units. Our aim is to ensure we are not reliant on the Basic Payment and to replace the income from other sources.”

A focus on oilseed rape in recent years has seen yields improve.

implementation of stringent biosecurity measures, adds Mr Cross. “I will not take any farmyard manure unless I know where the straw has come from. Our soil could benefit from more muck but I do not want to take the risk of importing black-grass.” Wheat remains the mainstay of the farm’s rotation and despite ‘reasonable’ 2016 yields of eight tonnes/ ha (3.25t/acre), Mr Cross is constantly looking at ways of improving the performance of the crop. “We try a new variety each year because we want to benefit from genetic improvements. This year we are growing Crusoe, Lili and Graham. We struggle to achieve the extra yield from wheat, so it is where I am focusing my efforts.”

Spring beans are currently the only spring crop grown on the farm.

Limited testing capacity keeping growers waiting rOnly five new barley

This was the message from RAGT Seeds managing director Simon Howell, who told a briefing in Edinburgh: “Lack of capacity for the malting testing of spring barley means there is a time lag when it comes to getting new varieties onto the Recommended List. “It is a real challenge to get end users to engage, at least two of whom are needed to test the varieties, so we find ourselves in a situation where only five new varieties are tested annually.”

Cope Seeds managing director Gemma Clarke says seed produced to the higher voluntary standard (HVS) offers a minimum level of 85 per cent germination and 99 per cent purity, although it is not guaranteed black-grass free. She says: “We are going one step further than what is already available. Excel offers a minimum germination of 95 per cent, plus a

purity of 99.7 per cent and is guaranteed black-grass free. “For farmers who do not have black-grass it gives an extra guarantee they will not bring it on to their farm through seed. For those who have already got it, if they can get it under control, Excel helps keep it that way.”

Standards For 2017, the spring barley seed varieties grown to meet Excel standards are RGT Planet and Evelina. Spring wheat varieties available are Annabel and Mulika as well as Aspen spring oats.

Nitrogen-fixing technology trials set for the UK GLEADELL Agriculture has announced an agreement with Azotic Technologies to develop and market Natural Plant Nutrition (NPN4) nitrogen-fixing technology across the UK.

The agreement incorporates development work, including seed inoculation and a network of organic and conventional trials across the UK in partnership with Dutch company Koppert Biological Systems, which manufactures NPN4. Trials to date are said to show reduced rates of N can be applied to crops when using NPN4, producing similar yields and quality to those grown entirely with artificial nitrogen. When NPN4 is used with normal levels of N, yield increases can be achieved. Gleadell sales director Stuart

Shand says the company will be focusing on organic crops and working with organisations and individual farmers to further explore the benefits of the technology. He says: “We believe the technology also has a huge part to play in conventional systems. “We have been conducting application trials on dressed seed in partnership with Koppert.

Change in PCN dynamics could hit fresh potato sector rAlmost half of soils

tested had PCN

A RECENT UK survey of potato cyst nematode (PCN) has identified a fall in the area of land affected by the pest, but a significant shift in populations on areas that remain infested, since the last assessment was carried out in 1999. The survey, conducted by Kasia Dybal of Harper Adams University as part of an AHDB Potatoes PhD studentship, showed almost half (48 per cent) of the soils tested in 2016 were found to be infested with PCN.

Resistance This was lower than the previous figure of 64 per cent, possibly due to the increase in potato varieties carrying the H1 resistance to Globodera rostochiensis, according to Dr Matthew Back of Harper Adams University. He says: “The widespread use of varieties with high resistance to G.

The area of land affected by potato cyst nematode has fallen but populations of the pest have shifted significantly.

rostochiensis, possibly combined with the adoption of better management, including longer rotations, adoption of better practices and integrated management techniques, has led to an overall decline in the area infested.” Six out of the 10 most popular var-

ieties in the UK, including the most widely grown, Maris Piper, have resistance scores of eight or nine to that species, he adds. “But it means we are left with more G. pallida as a result.” In 2016, almost 90 per cent of infested sites contained pure G. pallida, compared to 67 per cent in 1999.

Genetic techniques for disease resistance could cut crop protection product use SCIENTISTS have developed an improved method for capturing DNA, allowing better differentiation between similar resistance (R) genes which provide plants with immunity to disease. Dr Matt Clark, head of technology development at the Norwich-based Earlham Institute and lead author of the study, says: “Wild relatives of crops contain a huge repertoire of novel genes that could be used to breed more resistant varieties that need less pesticide treatments. The project seeks to better the current UK OSR yield record.

28 | JANUARY 13 2017

p28 Jan13 TR BB GG.indd 2

“When it comes to identifying key genes it can be very difficult for researchers to find the exact resistance gene due to the sheer similarity of their DNA sequences.

Similar genes “Typical sequencing methods use short reads but these are often too short to prise similar genes apart. “In this study, we can identify the exact gene that confers resistance to a certain infection, and use it in breeding programmes.”

Dr Ingo Hein, principal investigator at the James Hutton Institute and co-author, adds: “R genes can control diverse plant diseases including major threats to global crop production. “The ability to capture and sequence long genomic DNA fragments that contain full-length R genes enables the rapid identification of novel, functional resistance genes from wild species. These genes could significantly reduce the dependency on pesticides for crop production.”

This is potentially bad news for the fresh potato sector, says Dr Back. “The processing sector has access to quite a few resistant varieties, but very few options are available for the ware sector. Of the top 10 varieties, two score three for resistance and the rest just two.”

Potato price rise IN the eight weeks to Christmas, average UK potato prices rose, almost continuously, with only two weeks of prices in decline according to AHDB Potatoes.

Second highest Prices for both the overall average and free-buy average, are currently at the second highest level this century, behind only 2012, for this point in the season. The free-buy average continues to move at a premium to the overall average, a typical characteristic of a high priced year.

New OSR yield enhancement network launched FOLLOWING on from the success of the Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) which has seen farmers striving to improve their cereal yields, ADAS has now launched a new YEN focusing on oilseed rape production. Currently the UK record for OSR yield stands at about 6.5t/ha (2.6t/ acre) set in 2015, but according to research, OSR grown in the UK has the

potential to exceed 10t/ha (4t/acre). In reality the average UK yield is only about 3.5t/ha (1.4t/acre) according to ADAS, which says there are improvements to be made. As with the cereals YEN, the OSR YEN will include a yield competition which is open to everyone and will provide an understanding of yield on each entrant’s own farm. It will also provide an opportunity

to test the entrant’s agronomy skills and innovative ideas, according to ADAS, with the key aim of getting as close as possible to the yield potential of the entrant’s chosen site. Growers who participate will benefit from an analysis of the components of yield on their farm and from an understanding of how to improve yields in future years, says ADAS. FGinsight.com

VIEW FROM THE ROSTRUM

Time to shake off 2016’s doubts Gwyn Williams looks at market confidence

W

hat a topsy-turvy year 2016 was. Unprecedented levels of political upheaval, global instability and uncertainty caused by the Brexit vote. All have had an effect on farming and its associated industries. Is 2017 the year to show more confidence in the future of our livestock industry? At Wright Marshall, we are acutely aware of the impact lower milk-prices had on our clients’ returns and on the value of dairy cattle, particularly in the first half of the year, which impacted greatly on our own business. Thankfully, there appears to be more price stability, leading to more confidence, so we are seeing sale averages return to more acceptable levels. December’s mid-month sale at Beeston, for example, saw 41

in-milk cows and heifers sell at more than £2,000, with averages greater than £1,600 and prices 25-30 per cent above those seen in the dark times of last spring. By the time you read this, our January mid-month sale will have taken place but, at the time of writing, an excellent entry and considerable interest from producers, was giving us confidence.

Sheep The sheep industry has enjoyed an altogether better year. More consistent prime lamb prices, particularly in the latter half of the year, helped confidence in the autumn breeding sales. There is no doubt the devaluation of the pound against the euro has helped our finished lamb returns, but it emphasises just how important a continued trading relationship with our nearest neighbours across the water will be to the future profitability of our sheep industry.

Plenty of confidence was in evidence at Chelford last Saturday at our annual New Year shows and sales of pedigree Texel and Beltex females in front of a huge crowd, with a packed ring all day. With a top price of 5,000gns, plenty of sheep making more than 1,000gns and averages increasing across the board from last year, there was a good indication breeders and commercial producers see a long-term future. It was particularly pleasing to see so many young breeders bidding strongly to acquire top quality genetics. And there is confidence in the future of our auction industry. I have just had the pleasure of attending the annual graduation and presentation ceremony for our auction business management students at Harper Adams University. Having been involved in the design and delivery of this course since its inception some 16 years ago, I am still amazed as to how much time and dedication the

students put in while also holding down demanding full-time jobs. The course trains the future leaders of our industry. The students recognise how important a vibrant auction sector is to the viability of the livestock industry. Judging by the quality of work produced and the way many former students have already taken leading places in the sector, the future of our industry is in good hands. Producers just need to remember how your auctioneer is there to help you improve your returns. The more they make of your stock, the more they make too. Do not forget, it is the only marketing system where there is something for everybody, and somebody for everything. Gwyn Williams is a director at Wright Marshall auctioneers, acting as auctioneer and valuer at Chelford. Call 01625 861 122 or email gwynwilliams@ wrightmarshall.co.uk

Livestock Technology THIS APP IS YOUR FARM OFFICE IN YOUR POCKET Liam O’Keefe, Farmer & Herdwatch customer

IT SAVES TIME WHEN YOU’RE AT YOUR BUSIEST - Liam registers all his calves through the Herdwatch App as he tags them, it removes the build-up of calves that need registering at night and it eliminates the guessing game of which calf belongs to which cow. KEEPING ON TOP OF MEDICINE RECORDS - Liam said “I record my medicines when I’m washing the Parlour. It’s very easy to keep on top of things - it’s like having all the books in your phone.” BREEDING RECORDS ARE A MUST - Heat Detections, Serves and Scanning are recorded quickly with no internet needed. It

shows you which cows have gone over 40 days since calving without showing any heat activity, so you know what cows to get checked out.

THE FEATURES

• Weight Recording • Medicine Compliance

• Group Treatments • Works without Internet

Take advantage of new grant Ammonia reduction improves efficiency

N

atural England (NE) has introduced a new grant scheme which focuses on the reduction of ammonia emissions and conservation of nitrogen, improving the overall efficiency of a farm. The aim of the farming ammonia reduction grant scheme is to reduce ammonia emissions from farms by funding more efficient ways of storing slurry. Talking about the scheme, Alan Falshaw, an agricultural business consultant at land, property and business consultancy George F. White, says: “Ammonia is one of the biggest air pollutants in the UK and more than 80 per cent of ammonia emissions derive from the agriculture sector.

“Therefore, NE is focused on reducing such emissions as much as possible and, at the same, improving efficiency of farms. “The grant is applicable to beef and dairy farms in England which use existing slurry stores and have been managing such stores for at least five years. “If successful, farmers will be provided with required funding to reduce the use of ammonia emissions on land, improve air quality and reduce the loss of nitrogen.

Advice “The grant will also help create a more energy efficient farm, as farmers will receive advice on how to increase quality of slurry as a fertiliser and reduce storage and field application costs for the slurry store.” Applications are now open and farmers have until January 31, 2017, to apply.

‘The grant will also help create a more energy efficient farm’

NE will go through all applications, then arrange for an inspection of the applicable farm to check eligibility and discuss ammonia reduction on-farm.

If existing slurry storage is suitable, a grant will be offered. Mr Falshaw says: “To maximise chances of meeting specific criteria of the grant, farmers should seek specialist advice on how to best fill out the grant application form, what information should be included and what to focus on within the application. “George F. White works with many farmer clients across England who are wishing to apply for the scheme but are unsure how to best approach the process. “We assist them, managing the entire grant application process from beginning to end on their behalf, ensuring the application form is fully and correctly completed and relevant information is submitted.” Alan Falshaw is an agricultural business consultant at George F. White. Call 01388 529 539, or email alanfalshaw@georgefwhite.co.uk.

The two farms are 40 miles apart and on one farm Angus runs a Fusion 3 and on the other farm a Fusion Vario. Before Angus bought his Fusions he was making all hay but wanted to get into haylage due to the increased feed value. “We get much better output and milk production from the haylage when compared with the old hay systemâ€? he commented. Angus makes 12,000 round bales per year, 10,000 of which are 4ft round bales of haylage and he also does two thousand 5 foot 6 inch bales of straw. Angus said “The McHale Fusion Vario is a very versatile baler, with it you can make different bale sizes depending on the crop type and the way you have the farm set up.â€? He continued “For straw you can select to make a harder bale core on the control box and bigger 5 foot 6 inch bales means less handling for bedding.â€? On evaluating whether to buy a McHale product or not Angus said “I spoke to a lot of McHale users and they were very happy with their McHale products. McHales reputation for machine build and service was good and the second hand values in magazines was excellent.â€?

Suzuki’s latest Vitara is small, light and surprisingly fun to drive. Inset: Load space is not the most generous, but rear seats can be folded.

Sporty Vitara joins the crossover club rRoad test: Suzuki

Vitara S AllGrip By Geoff Ashcroft

ONCE a utilitarian 4x4, Suzuki’s Vitara has been neatly transformed into a sporty crossover, with improved styling and better driving dynamics than its predecessor. As a crossover, it now sits among good company, including Nissan’s Qashqai, Skoda’s Yeti and Vauxhall’s Mokka, so the stakes are high for the Japanese contender. And while it looks and sounds familiar, Suzuki has a long history of Vitara production, this latest model represents an all-new approach. Its platform might be shared with its sister model, the SX4 S-Cross, yet the Vitara is more upright and square-cornered, just as a high-rise SUV should be. It also means lots of headroom and legroom inside too. If you are coming to the new model from an old Grand Vitara, then prepare yourself for a shock. Where the Grand was much more old-school, the young pretender is lower, lighter and less powerful, but far more entertaining to drive. Under the bonnet is a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine which 88 | JANUARY 13 2017

is enough to set pulses racing, despite its small size and 138hp. Fuel efficiency and keen performance shine through, and my average of 42mpg was not to be sniffed at, given the entertainment it provided.

Engaging Such sprightly performance is backed up with engaging handling; it is not what you would expect, given the car’s lofty stance. This S version is almost heading towards hot-hatch territory. With AllGrip 4wd, the Vitara S combines enjoyment with modest

off-road practicality. A rotary dial lets you choose from Auto, Sport, Snow and Lock modes. While Auto is a fuel-saving front-drive format, Snow and Lock functions let you push the boundaries when heading off-road and make sure all four wheels do their bit. Sport mode sends power to the rear wheels when needed. There is a bit of wind noise at higher road speeds, though the car remains light and easy to thread along country lanes. For oil burner enthusiasts, there is a 118hp DDiS turbo diesel elsewhere in the range, but with up

Need to know Model: Suzuki Vitara S AllGrip Price: £20,899 (as tested) Engine: 1.4-litre, turbo petrol, 140hp@5,500rpm, 220Nm@1,500-4,000rpm Transmission: Six-speed manual with AllGrip four-wheel drive Performance: 10.2 sec 0-62mph, 124mph, 52.3mpg combined, 127g/km Towing capacity: 1,200kg

to 52mpg on the combined cycle, why would you? Our test car’s S level trim brings sportiness to the road, or farm track, and sees splashes of colour throughout the interior as standard. While the red stitching on the seats and steering wheel does define the Vitara S interior, those anodised air vents seem to emit a shade of pink in certain light and might not be to everyone’s taste. Spec levels are impressive and this model includes DAB radio, navigation system, keyless entry, adaptive cruise control, LED projector headlamps and electrically adjustable, heated and folding door mirrors.

Control Safety kit has not been scrimped on either. ABS, electronic brakeforce distribution with brake assist, hill hold and hill descent control, multiple airbags, tyre pressure monitors, alarm, immobiliser and deadlocks are all standard kit list. Priced at £20,000, the Vitara S is certainly worth a look. The only downside could be the annual or 9,000-mile service intervals. FGinsight.com

In-depth 27-page preview of the upcoming Lamma Show

Biggest show yet O nce again, Lamma will soon be opening its doors to upwards of 50,000 visitors over two days, eager to see the latest farming technology available in the UK. Like previous Lamma shows, all the leading manufacturers will be showcasing new equipment, much of which will be making its first public appearance. But it is not all about the big firms, as Briefing Media group head of events Elisabeth Mork-Eidem says: “Lamma’s ethos throughout its 36year history has been to host smaller agricultural engineering and machin-

ery companies from across the UK, showcasing a wide range of products.” Other non-machinery areas continue to develop at Lamma too. A range of companies will be demonstrating the latest advances in agronomy, and visitors can catch up on the latest business and farm management advice.

Knowledge trail You can also earn six BASIS and two NRoSO points by attending the event and, for BASIS, by taking part in the Lamma knowledge trail. For more information, visit the Lamma stand in Hall 7 or download the new Lamma show app.

This year’s event is expected to welcome upwards of 50,000 visitors.

LAMMA 2017 PREVIEW Ever walked around Lamma and wondered how much work goes into the exhibits? Agco gives Jane Carley an insight into a year’s planning in the lead up to Lamma.

Road to Lamma W ith 900 stands covering the East of England Showground, Lamma is the biggest machinery show in the UK. For a lot of exhibitors, it is their most important domestic event of the year, and planning their presence takes many hours and a considerable chunk of their marketing budget.

1

In recent years, Agco has exhibited at Lamma with a joint stand for its four main brands.

Challenge

Massey Ferguson and Challenger advertising and sales promotion manager Lindsay Haddon says: “We have a unique challenge compared to other tractor manufacturers as we have to represent the individual Massey Ferguson,

Challenger, Valtra and Fendt brands within our overall identity.” Ms Haddon says the Agco marketing team has similar responsibilities for smaller British shows attended by Agco brands, such as Cereals and the Royal Highland, but planning lead time is a lot shorter for those, with Lamma preparations ticking away in the background virtually allyear-round.

EARLY PLANNING

PLANNING begins with a review meeting shortly after the previous year’s show at which formal and anecdotal feedback from dealers, customers and colleagues is considered, says Richard Miller, Fendt and Valtra advertising and sales promotion manager.

He says: “Some jobs, such as booking accommodation for staff, have to be done straight away for the next year. “We then start preparations in earnest in July, considering themes for the stand. “We will also look at forthcoming product launches and decide which

new developments will be featured at the show.” Stand construction and design is the responsibility of contractor Jimmy Birchmore Events and close contact is maintained between the two parties throughout. Ahead of Lamma 2016, Agco took the decision to alter the stand design from a mainly outdoors exhibit to covering the entire stand with a large marquee structure. Ms Haddon says: “Shows are first and foremost relationship builders for us. “We felt we wanted to offer our customers a more comfortable environment in which to look at and talk about products and enjoy a hot drink.”

The marquee measures 30 metres (98.4ft) by 65m (213ft) 1,650sq.m of trackway is used as a base for the stand Construction team comprises 40 people

MACHINE SELECTION

AS the year progresses, Mr Miller and Ms Haddon confirm exactly which machines will feature at the show and begin sourcing them. Mr Miller says: “Tractors may have to be ordered in from the factory to ensure they are available, as inventories will be low after the end of the financial year, while others come from demonstration fleets.” Once machines are selected, the layout is finalised with individual brand teams. Preparing promotional material for each product is another task. While many customers now prefer to check Agco’s websites for product details or have information sent directly to them, brochures are still requested, so

STAND DESIGN

AS events contractor, Jimmy Birchmore says it is important to keep the stand design inviting to visitors. He says: “For last year’s show, we met in the summer of 2015 and looked at the available space and possible layouts. At every show, we have to achieve the client’s objectives safely, within budget and in a way which is appropriate for the industry.” The design gave each of the brands its individual corner of the

90 | JANUARY 13 2017

Agco’s Lamma statistics

stand with a central hospitality and merchandising area. Mr Birchmore also planned four entrances with visitors able to see all four brands from each. An ‘indoor’ stand also has to be able to accommodate large machinery, so certain parts of the layout have to be finalised at an early stage. Mr Birchmore says: “When building the structure, some machines have to go in before the roof is completed.”

BUILD-UP

MR Birchmore makes a site visit in December for a preliminary mark out, with a further planning visit in the New Year. He says: “The whole process from starting to build the stand, the show itself and clearing the site, takes three weeks. Once the trackway is down, we put the marquee up, get the big kit in and fit the truss for the lighting rigs and add the stage blocks. “Machinery takes two to three days to put in and every delivery to the stand is individually scheduled, but there has to be some leeway in case we are held up by bad weather.” Weather also dictates the use of heating for covered structures, not for visitor or staff comfort, but to clear any snow off the roof and prevent condensation affecting lighting.

Ms Haddon says: “Lamma really starts the year off for us and is an ideal opportunity for customers to meet the manufacturer and get to know sales and technical staff. By improving the stand, we have made it more convenient and comfortable.”

LAMMA 2017 PREVIEW Lamma is a unique showcase for specialist importers who support machinery for specific applications. Jane Carley looks at three of these companies.

Specialist importers MASTENBROEK DRAINAGE EQUIPMENT MASTENBROEK was founded in 1965 in Boston, Lincolnshire, by Dutch drainage equipment manufacturer John Mastenbroek, who saw strong links between the conditions in East Anglia and the Netherlands. A major milestone for the company came in 1973 when the use of laser control of drainage grade and depth was incorporated in machinery designs. General manager Christopher Pett says: “Mastenbroek was one of the first companies to use lasers in the UK. It was as revolutionary as the use of GPS in agriculture a few years later, eliminating the need to use rods for measurements.” The company also began manufacturing drainage machines in Boston, designed specifically for UK agriculture to suit the varied soil conditions. “Many other countries have similar conditions to the UK, giving us export opportunities,” he says. In the late 1960s Mastenbroek became the importer for the Dutch-built Herder mowing arms, providing water management systems, and in 1999 the franchise for Conver maintenance boats completed the circle.

GPS guidance for drainage trenchers has been a major milestone for the industry. “We also expanded the range to cover drain jetters, aiming at the niche end of the market with high pressure machines for contaminated drains.” From 1977-1984 the focus was on farm drainage trenchers, but with the removal of agricultural drainage grants in 1984, Mastenbroek needed to diversify.

Cables Projects included sub-sea trenchers, designed to work on the seabed, which recently found a new market in offshore wind farms, allowing electrical cables to be laid below the ocean. Trenches can be made at depths of 1,000 metres (3,280ft).

He points out one of the firm’s strengths is it is still a small business with 35 employees, maintaining a hands-on approach. “The headquarters was originally a farm building but it has expanded to cover an eight-acre site and it is still a privately owned company. The current majority shareholder, Jack Geelhoed, came here as a teenager from Holland to work as a fitter. Many of the staff have worked at Mastenbroek for 30 years or more.” The pioneering approach has continued in the firm’s agricultural division, which has seen fortunes improve as farmers seek to boost yields and improve margins by addressing drainage issues.

Mastenbroek’s laser supplier became part of the Trimble group and, in 2011, the two companies started developing GPS to control depth and grade on trenchers. By 2014 the technology had developed to combine this with auto steer. Mr Pett describes the use of GPS for drainage as a ‘game changer’ in the same way laser grading was in the 1970s and says Mastenbroek builds one trencher a month for agriculture, virtually all of which are GPS-equipped. Mastenbroek has exhibited at Lamma since 2006 and Mr Pett says: “Although the show has grown considerably, it remains a low cost, exhibitor-friendly event at an ideal time of year for farmers.”

CTM HARPLEY ENGINEERING BEST known for its cleaner loader range, but now also the importer of several marketleading ranges of harvesting and handling equipment, CTM has a long history of innovation. Like many British agricultural engineers, CTM sprung out of the village forge. Charles Thomas Mountain was a blacksmith and farrier in the hamlet of Harpley, Norfolk, who started producing harrows and other implements required by the rise of tractors. In 1950, Charles Mountain built the first sugar beet cleaner loader which led to the establishment of Harpley Engineering and subsequently CTM Root Crop Systems, a family business now managed by his grandsons Nigel, Adrian, Andrew and James.

Competitive For more than 50 years the company designed and built sugar beet cleaner loaders, also offering subcontracting service to other machinery manufacturers. But in a competitive market, innovation, diversification and partnership with international machinery specialists have all been key. Diversification came in 2010 when CTM applied its expertise in soil and stone separation into the new Rockstar range of potato field destoners. Ridgestar field ridgers followed shortly afterwards. A number of partnerships with manufacturers have also been formed, including German sugar beet machinery firm Ropa, known for its harvesters and Maus cleaner loaders and last year, CTM added Bergmann Beet Chasers to its portfolio.

CTM has evolved over the past 66 years and we are ready to meet the future needs of British agriculture

The Bergmann beet chaser complements the high output Ropa Tiger harvester, both imported by CTM Harpley.

LAMMA 2017 PREVIEW

Storage silos are designed for a range of products.

Mill and mix systems need to be adoptable.

DANAGRI 3S CROP PROCESSING EQUIPMENT DANAGRI 3S was founded when two Danish businessmen joined forces to market Skiold mill and mix machinery and Cormall straw processing equipment in the UK in 1990. Managing director Mark Unitt says: “The fixed equipment range was then joined by bale wrappers, maize drills, sugar beet and fodder beet machinery, although these ranges later went on to other distributors and the decision was taken to focus on the core products from 1997.” There are four main product groups, which Mr Unitt says offer synergies in terms of sales and support. The GSI range includes silos and grain drying equipment, complemented by JEMA elevators and conveyors. Skiold mill and mix equipment goes mainly into the pig and poultry market, which also sees demand for the JEMA range. Cormall straw processors fulfil a semi-industrial market for producers who process straw into pellets or shredded products for

feeds, animal bedding industry or briquettes for biomass heating. Hampshire Feeding Systems was bought in 1999 and supplies liquid feeding equipment for pig farms. In addition to UK sales, this range is exported to Englishspeaking countries and has also been successful in Japan.

Contribution “The ranges complement each other because if arable business is good, grain equipment sales increase. But if prices are down, input costs for pig and poultry farmers fall, so they can invest. Our annual turnover has been consistent, but the contribution of each product area varies.” He says interest in drying and storage equipment for handling woodchip destined for biomass boilers has grown in recent years and the nature of investments and installations has also changed. “Farms smaller than 500 acres find it hard to invest but business is good on the larger estates. We have seen significant investment

In many cases feed ingredients have changed over the years and producers are having to update their systems to keep up MARK UNITT in mill and mix systems from the pig industry. In many cases feed ingredients have changed over the years and producers are having to update their systems to keep up. One issue for us is although rotors and hammers need replacement, mills can last 30 years.” On the arable side, farmers update their combines but do not always realise grain intake and

drying equipment needs upgrading to meet the extra capacity. Technology moves on apace, and Mr Unitt expects in-bin drying to grow on larger farms as it has in the USA, offering the opportunity to store and dry in one place. He says the disc mill, introduced in 2000, was a major development on the mill and mix side, moving trade away from hammer mills. “Our customer base is diverse. We recently carried out a £750,000 mill and mix project in Scotland, but can still cater for a single bin order for a family farm. Danagri 3S has exhibited at Lamma since the 1990s and Mr Unitt says the event is known for its exhibitor-friendly approach. “Timing is tight for us to follow enquiries and commission grain equipment for the forthcoming harvest. We see less emphasis on selling equipment at the show these days, but it is still worthwhile. We also take a different approach, using videos, models and photos of installations as a talking point, rather than displaying machinery.”

LAMMA 2017 PREVIEW If a drone is on your shopping list or you want to know more about aerial services, then Lamma could help your research. Geoff Ashcroft reports.

A

s applications for drones continue to evolve, an increasing number of farmers are looking at how they can be a useful tool for their businesses. It could be field mapping, weed scanning, head-counting for wandering livestock or just capturing the moment at harvest. But there are a few key areas to consider before parting with your hard-earned cash. Legislation is tightening up and drone operators need to be aware of the rules and regulations which cover the use of such kit, while also being aware of airspace too.

Experience Matt Williams, of Oxfordshire-based training provider Aerial Motion Pictures, is an ex-military helicopter pilot and offers a wide range of experience and advice for those thinking of using a drone. “There are a lot of operators out there who have absolutely no idea of the rules of the air and the risks they take when they launch a drone,” he says. “Ignorance is no defence, given the amount of information out there which can help you and those round you to stay safe and work within the law.”

Drones for agriculture

STAYING LEGAL/SAFE FOR vital information, the best place to start is the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) website. Here, you will find a list of national qualified entities which are CAA-approved for training purposes. Mr Williams says: “There have also been subtle changes to the Air Navigation Order and the CAA’s permissions system this year. The Permission for Aerial Work [PfAW] has been replaced by Permission for Commercial Operation [PfCO] and it now clearly defines how using a drone for any level of commercial gain needs a PfCO.”

Gain It could easily be argued using one for any aspect of business on-farm constitutes a commercial gain. The principle of operation requires the pilot to maintain a visual line of sight (VLOS) at all times. And according to the CAA,

Mr Williams warns all operators should undergo training to get a greater understanding of the risks involved with drone flights. He says it gives novices an appreciation of airspace restrictions, flight regulations and the safety of others.

this means a maximum vertical height of 122 metres (400ft) and maximum distance of 152m (500ft) horizontally. “Beyond VLOS, you must have a detect and avoid system on your aircraft. But the onus remains on

the person flying the aircraft to be reasonably satisfied the flight can be safely made.” “Depth of perception can be hard to maintain as the drone gets further from you. Even 300m could easily be 500m.”

MAKING MORE OF IMAGES AGROVISTA, located in hall 7, on stand 769, has been looking at the feasibility of making farmers’ drones work harder for them. By taking farmer-supplied images, Agrovista is now able to process images through its own Axis MapIT Pro software system and deliver useful data back to farmers, for variable rate inputs or patch spraying.

Advice Lewis McKerrow, Agrovista head of precision technology, says: “We wanted to see if this information could be used to deliver practical advice to growers who want to use their own equipment to capture data when it suits them. “A recent major step forward has been the release of easy-touse flight planner apps for tablets and smartphones, making it easier for relatively unskilled operators to carry out these flights,” he says. 98 | JANUARY 13 2017

p98 99 Jan 13 JR GG BB.indd 2

“Once the boundary has been set, the quadcopter flies a planned route, capturing high-resolution images autonomously, even taking off and landing without any operator input.” Agrovista is now ready to take captured UAV pictures and data, process them and give them back

SPRAYING APPLICATIONS THOSE with the necessary permissions can take advantage of drone technology. For others, it could be more prudent to buyin drone services. This is the idea behind start-up business Crop Angel (Hall 7, stand 728). The firm took the wraps off a large-scale spraying drone at last year’s Lamma show and it says it is on its way to making aerial drone spraying a commercial reality.

Useful information Drone Code: http://dronesafe.uk/ Civil Aviation Authority: www.caa.co.uk Lamma, Hall 7: All the latest drone technology and advice

Precision Run by Norfolk agronomist Matthew Kealey and grower Chris Eglington, they see a useful role for drones with precision spot spraying. Mr Eglington says: “I have been flying round my farm for several years now and a drone offers a fast and efficient way to monitor crop growth and look for pests and diseases. “Spraying drones have great potential for hitting pockets of weeds, spraying tree canopies, soft fruits or golf courses.” Regulations forbid anything to be dropped from a drone, though the firm is working with the CAA and other regulatory bodies to develop permissions for remotely piloted, low volume aerial spraying. “There is a lot of work to be done and challenges include maintaining an even height above the canopy and getting close enough to crops,” he says.

EXPERIENCE THE ‘S EFFECT’ AND FEEL THE DIFFERENCE

THE NEW MF 6700 S | 120-200 HP The MF 6700 S Series is packed with new features and upgrades, and is the very latest in 4-cylinder AGCO Power engine technology. With a maximum output of 200hp, it delivers the highest performance of any 4-cylinder tractor on the market today.

LAMMA 2017 PREVIEW Lightbars and custom paint jobs are common on lorries, but tractor drivers are increasingly customising their steeds, too, as Geoff Ashcroft reports.

Stand out from the crowd

H

ighly polished chrome, bright lights, dazzling paintwork and leathertrimmed interiors are synonymous with owner-drivers in the trucking world as they aim to stand out from the crowd with heavily customised rigs. It is fast becoming accepted with tractors too and the trend is much more than just having your farm name plasma-cut into the front weight box. Roof-mounted lightbars, LED marker lights, polished exhaust systems and logoed carpet mats are making their way into the machinery market for those who want something different.

looking to pimp their tractors. So, is it clever marketing, wasted wages or good entertainment normally associated with a younger audience looking to stand out?

JOB DONE!

LAMMA 2017

STANDOUT TRACTORS FOR Oxfordshire farmer and contractor Chris Cox of JTW Cox Farms, Beckley, it is all about spoiling yourself. “I am a bit of a tractor nut,” he says. “And I do like a bit of bling. There are some great looking lorries on the road, so I thought, ‘why not make my tractor stand out a little more?’ “It is good marketing and does get you noticed when you are out and about pulling trailers, but there is also a sense of pride in what we do, too.” Mr Cox’s current mule is a four-year-old John Deere 6210R, and it has been given the once over, including a ‘Coxy’ name plate on the dashboard. He and his brother Richard got tired of the standard look many years ago and have been fettling their rides ever since.

His roof-mounted light bar also emphasises he is no shrinking violet, too. “I made the light bar myself and fitted four 55W work lamps. Then I had to relocate the Greenstar receiver to take advantage of the extra illumination,” he says. With side lights turned on, the lightbar emits a soft green glow, as do the forward facing marker lights under the indicators. A

Inside the cab are two green LEDs for ambient lighting, plus a custom carpet set, and both seats have been retrimmed in yellow and green leather. “It makes an ordinary tractor feel special. I have had a few flashes from truckers who obviously appreciate the custom look.” But his showpiece upgrade is a two-tone, high decibel train horn, hidden under the cab. “We have a similar hooter on the forager too and it does wake the trailer drivers when they are not paying attention.”

Philip Trim used custom artwork on three of his foragers.

PRIDE OF PLACE ALEC Wilkinson, Bowles Farm, Barnard Gate, Oxfordshire, is also something of a tractor nut. He runs two articulated lorries to support his 1,500-hectare (3,700-acre) contract farming business, and his sense of pride is easy to see. Equipment is bordering on immaculate and the subtle introduction of a little bling is easily spotted across the A.L. Wilkinson tractor fleet.

Custom His flagship tractor, a US-built John Deere 9620 artic, has been fitted with a custom-built Eminox exhaust stack from Coles and Sons, Banbury, which operates a fleet of high profile custom trucks in its haulage business. The firm also supplies custom parts. Mr Wilkinson says: “There is no doubt my truck is my guilty pleasure. The murals on it are

BRAND RECOGNITION all of my farm equipment. But I also like my tractors to look smart and older equipment can look good if you look after it.” Almost all his seven tractors feature stainless steel exhaust systems and the 9620 has a beacon bar across its roof, plus a low-level lightbar under the nose to help it stand out on the road – though the big Deere hardly lacks presence. “I like subtle improvements – it is good for our business, as looking smart gets us noticed.”

Alec Wilkinson takes pride in running immaculate kit.

CONTRACTOR Philip Trim, Bere Regis, Dorset, has had custom paintwork applied to three foragers over the years. But with more time now spent in the office than the cab, he saves custom paint for his fleet of 10 lorries, used for liquid waste haulage, to complement his general contracting operation. Mr Trim says: “My last forager paint scheme was an all-black affair with silver wheels to mark 25 years of business. But with paintwork costing about £4,000, it has become a luxury which is financially difficult to justify.” He says truckers have a different mindset to many tractordrivers, and their approach to the job is worthy of recognition. “They live in their cabs all week, so it is their home from home. My truck drivers have much more pride in how their vehicles look than those who hop between tractor cabs. They also have a lot more loyalty to the business compared to seasonal operators.”

My truck drivers have much more pride in how their vehicles look than those who hop between tractor cabs PHILIP TRIM With trucks operating over a greater area too, they are much more visible and a distinctive paint scheme does help the Trim brand to get recognition. “When the contracting team goes muck spreading and tractors get plastered, it is just not the same as people saying they have seen your shiny yellow trucks on the road.”

Fendt’s updated 500 Series will take centre stage on the company’s stand, showcasing the firm’s new ‘nature green’ paintwork. Powered by a 4.04-litre Deutz engine, which now meets Stage 4 emissions regulations, the 125-165hp range uses electronically controlled exhaust gas recirculation and map-controlled AdBlue injection to reduce AdBlue consumption. Deutz-Fahr will have its new 5, 6 and 7 Series tractors on show. Of particular note for UK farmers is the new 6 Series RC Shift, which features a fully automatic, robotised

Bauer will show its latest steel tankers.

ARABLE EQUIPMENT

MUCK AND SLURRY Abbey Machinery is to introduce the Tri-App, designed to combine three functions of dribble bar, trailing boot and trailing shoe applicators into one machine. It can be mounted onto a tanker via a fixed mounting or via the use of a hydraulic mast or on the back of a tractor to run with an umbilical spreading system. Bauer is expanding its range

of slurry and digestate tankers with the steel BSA Profiline range, featuring capacities between 10,000 and 26,000 litres. As standard, the new tankers will come with double corrosion protection against aggressive liquor from anaerobic digestion plants – the welded steel tanks are hot-dip galvanized inside and out before receiving a powder coating paint finish.

Following the acquisition of the Vogel and Noot plough factory, Amazone adds the new Cayros mounted reversible ploughs. This gives five further models of reversible plough, from the three- and four-furrow Cayros M, to the top-of-the-range Cayros XS for tractors up to 380hp, in addition to the Cayron already in Amazone’s range. Horsch is to introduce a new mounted version of its precision Maestro drill, which features pneumatic singling technology, allowing it to be used for maize, soy, sunflowers, sugar beet and rapeseed, with versions to suit a range of row spacings. Coulter pressure of 300kg, adjusted on-the-move from the screen in the cab, enables effective operation at about 12kph (7.5mph). Claydon Drills will launch a

three-metre version of its Hybrid trailed drill and will offer a kit to enable farmers who already own a 3m Hybrid M3 mounted drill to convert it to the new trailed specification. The T3 extends the company’s range of Hybrid trailed drills to four models from 3-8m working widths. Vaderstad is to introduce a new generation TopDown cultivator in working widths of 3-9m. Updates include a new double SteelRunner packer option, a reinforced frame, new hydraulics and stronger tine arms. The TrueCut 470 disc module is designed for cutting and mixing soils, with the levelling board receiving a new design for better working angles, and the new SteelRunner packer offers a full depth reconsolidation and clod breaking function.

Vaderstad has updated its venerable cultivator, the TopDown.

PREVIEW LAMMA 2017 GRASSLAND AND HARVESTING EQUIPMENT Fendt is to present its baler and combine harvester range for the first time at Lamma. Flagship of the combine range, the Fendt X-Series, features a maximum cutting width of 10.7 metres (35ft) and the firm’s Skyline cab with VarioGuide automated steering. Fendt X-Series combines also get Agco’s established PowerFlow table and a 12,500-litre grain tank, while Atrak crawler tracks can be specified. Fendt’s range of large square balers features a 2.26m (7.4ft) pick-up with roller pressure pad for smooth crop flow. Monitoring and control is via the cab-mounted Varioterminal and there are five models in the range, from the 990, which makes an 800mm by 900mm (2.6ft by 3ft) bale, to the 12130, which produces 1,200m by 1,300mm (4ft by 4.2ft) bales. New Holland will show updated versions of the Roll Baler 125 and Roll Baler 125 Combi round balers. Roll Baler 125 models feature the latest 2.3m (7.5ft) wide pick-up and a new drop floor, operated from the cab. This uses a pivot design to lower

the floor by 120mm (4.7in) at the front and 60mm (2.3in) at the rear, making it easier to clear a blockage. Knives lower automatically when the drop floor is lowered. Wrapper speed on the Roll Baler 125 Combi is also said to be 20 per cent higher than the previous model. Hi-Spec joins the swelling ranks of mower suppliers with the 10.5m AutoCut trailed mower. Shown in pre-production format, the mower’s design means most of the weight of the rear units is carried on the frame, allowing it to be handled by a smaller tractor than mounted triple mowers. It will be available in plain mower and mower conditioner formats and other features include hydraulic suspension and a rear folding system to give transport width to below 2.6m (19.6ft). JC Machinery will show the revamped Vredo overseeder, which features a redesigned hopper to encourage funnelling of seed towards the cam wheel, gas springs to improve lid operation and new spindle adjustment of the gearbox for easier calibration. Heath Engineering will be making its first appearance at the show after

New Holland has made several tweaks to its round balers.

producing agricultural equipment for more than 70 years. Headlining the range of equipment is the Heath Super Grab – a bale grab with a total ‘free release system’, designed to enable safer bale stacking and loading, with bales held by four specially designed Hardox tines.

LIVESTOCK Tackling pig disease threats Angela Calvert, Acting head of Livestock – 07768 796 492 – angela.calvert@fginsight.com

r‘Clever’ viruses

mutate quickly By Chloe Palmer

DR Susanna Williamson leads scanning surveillance activities for pigs at the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) to detect, investigate and tackle new and emerging disease threats. She has been involved in the diagnosis and investigation of many disease outbreaks in pigs, as well as projects on bacterial and viral diseases. Dr Williamson was recently awarded the 2016 David Black Award which goes to somebody who has made a valuable and sustained contribution to the British pig industry. How did your professional interest in pigs develop?

My interest in pigs and pig diseases developed when I moved to work as a Veterinary Investigation Officer (VIO) at the Bury St Edmunds Veterinary Investigation Centre to work in the Veterinary Laboratories Agency (now APHA) team there in 2000. East Anglia is very ‘pig-centric’ and I found much of my work fo-

UK pig farmers need to maintain the highest standards of biosecurity.

cused on pigs. In 2014 I became the APHA veterinary lead for pig disease surveillance for England and Wales. Why is the level of disease risk and its potential impact in pigs so high compared to other livestock species?

One of the differences between pigs and ruminants is pigs breed all year round. This means there is no significant break between successive batches of young pigs as there is for cattle and sheep. Each sow also produces a high number of young at each pregnancy compared to ruminants; typically about 12 pigs per litter and so 90 per cent of the commercial pig population at any one time is under six months old. As a consequence, more of the population is susceptible to infection and disease due to their naive status because they have not previously encountered infections in their lifetime. What are the most serious disease threats facing the UK pig industry today?

African Swine Fever (ASF) is an ever-present threat because it is persistent in countries bordering

Any spread of ASF [African Swine Fever] westward within the EU is of concern DR SUSANNA WILLIAMSON eastern EU member states where ASF infections are detected regularly in wild boar and domestic pig outbreaks have been reported over the past three years. Any spread of ASF westward within the EU is of concern. Countries such as Denmark have stepped up pig transport biosecurity in response to the risk of spread on lorries returning from these areas. About 20 per cent of lorries coming to the UK from Europe are from Poland and if there is any contamination of these with ASF-infected pig faeces, they represent a risk route for introduction. This emphasises the need for pig farmers in the UK to maintain the

highest standards of biosecurity. The highest risk of the disease entering pigs in the UK is through people feeding waste food containing meat from an ASF-infected pig or wild boar to pigs. The feeding of swill to pigs has been banned since 2001 but almost a third of smallholder pig owners admitted to feeding food waste to their pigs in a recent survey. These actions, which may be done with good intentions, are illegal and pose a serious danger to the wellbeing of their own pigs and the entire pig industry.

Strain A virulent strain of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhoea (PED) has been one of our biggest concerns since it was detected in late spring 2013 in the United States. It was found to spread rapidly, particularly via pig lorry movements due to ineffective disinfection procedures. It spread through the US and into Canada in less than a year. The effects of the disease are devastating in young pigs; it typically results in 80-100 per cent mortality in pigs less than two weeks old. Consequently, Government and industry worked together to take action to reduce the risk of introducing the virus, to increase the likelihood of detection if it did enter and to establish control plans. The disease was made notifiable in England and Scotland requiring pig keepers or vets suspecting PED to report it. What forms of surveillance do you use at the APHA?

One form of surveillance we use is referred to as ‘horizon scanning’ where we monitor a range of sources to scan for infections and diseases which have not been detected in the UK but may be reported in other countries. We attend conferences, examine veterinary research publications and also keep an eye on relevant websites. Diagnostic investigations taking place through APHA and SAC and discussions with veterinary practitioners attending disease outbreaks are another vital method of surveillance. Vets and farmers are the ‘eyes and ears’ for disease surveillance and we encourage practitioners to contact us where they suspect something out of the ordinary, for example where there are unusual 116 | JANUARY 13 2017

signs or disease is severe or unresponsive to control measures.

ENGLISH sheep farmers are being encouraged to take part in a new initiative being launched by AHDB Beef and Lamb. The Challenge Sheep project aims to get better lifetime performance from ewe replacements by understanding the impact of what happens to them as ewe lambs and shearlings. It will track 5,000 replacements from a range of sheep farms over seven years to understand how flock performance can be improved. AHDB Beef and Lamb is looking to recruit sheep producers who represent a variety of systems and are keen to use the data

they are collecting via EID to improve their decisions on ewe management.

Replacements Senior livestock scientist Liz Genever said: “Research and producer feedback shows there are clear improvements to be made in the management of replacements entering the national flock, as up to 20 per cent are not retained after their first breeding season due to premature culling or death. Young sheep can also have a negative impact on overall flock performance due to poor lamb performance.

“Challenge Sheep aims to understand the impact ewe replacements can have on flock productivity and, ultimately, farm profitability. Using this knowledge, the project will develop best practice guidelines for managing ewe replacements. “The research work will be linked to an extensive knowledge exchange programme to ensure results get taken up rapidly by the industry.” MORE INFORMATION For more information visit http:// beefandlamb.ahdb.org.uk/research/ challenge-sheep/

EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE

Part of your role as the veterinary lead on pigs is to inform Defra and make recommendations about the seriousness of a disease. How do you quantify the level of risk and the impact of a disease?

There is a standardised approach which is overseen by the Veterinary Risk Group which reports to the four Chief Veterinary Officers. For each potential disease threat, we consider the impact of on pig health and welfare. Importantly, we assess any risk to human health. Finally we must assess the possible impact of the disease on international trade. What technological advances do you think may make a real difference for pig health and welfare in the coming years?

I think vaccines have the potential to help us in the battle against many serious pig diseases. In 2006, PCV2 vaccines were introduced and have proven very effective against porcine circovirus-associated disease which caused huge losses from late 1999 when it appeared and spread in the UK. However, there are ‘clever’ viruses such as Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus which mutates quickly and is therefore more challenging for the vaccine companies to produce fully effective vaccines. There is no vaccine available for use in ASF-affected countries. Investment in technological advances to produce new or improved vaccines could make quantum leaps in disease control for some diseases.

New look for NSA Central Region event By Laura Bowyer

B

ack with a new format, the biennial NSA Central Region Early Gathering is set for Bakewell Agricultural Centre, Bakewell, Derbyshire, on Thursday, January 26, 2017. With many uncertainties in the sheep sector, particularly post-Brexit, this event has a health theme and aims to address not only that of the overall sheep sector, but also sheep, the shepherd, the sheep dog, on-farm records and financial accounts. Emphasis has been put on delivering an interesting and exciting lineup of speakers for a packed seminar, interactive workshop and demonstration programme. The event will take place largely undercover within the market concourse, with visitors benefiting from experts sharing their knowledge on different elements of health. Alastair Sneddon, NSA Central Region chairman, says: “The industry has seldom faced more uncertain times than at present and this year’s event has the aim of helping farmers and their businesses withstand whatever the future might hold. The programme will help you make the right decisions at the appropriate times.” The seminar programme commences with the health of the future

The programme will help you make the right decisions at the appropriate times ALASTAIR SNEDDON of the sheep sector, with members of the NSA next generation group discussing their experiences as young people working in the industry. There will also be a session focusing on keeping records healthy, with representatives from the Farm Advice Service and Shearwell Data.

Health check The afternoon ‘Brexit health check’ aims to ensure farmers can secure the longevity of their business. A wealth of knowledge will address this area, from Martin Redfearn, The Policy Group; David Swale, head of strategic insight at AHDB; and NSA chief executive Phil Stocker. To round-off the day’s seminars, three medical professionals will turn their attention to the personal health of farmers and farm workers. A nurse

and physiotherapist are set to take part in the discussion, along with a doctor talking about how to deal with an accident or emergency on-farm. Demonstrations will focus on sheepdogs, with renowned expert Katy Cropper. There will also be a butchery demonstration showing the latest innovation in lamb cuts and joints.

The event will offer advice on how farmers can secure the health of their businesses.

Extending the event’s interactivity, workshops will involve independent sheep consultant Lesley Stubbings and vet Chris Lewis on the healthy use of wormers, flukicides and antibiotics. There will also be a workshop session on flock health planning. Mr Stocker says: “Every visitor will be able to take away thoughts and ideas to secure the health of their own businesses. The programme has been designed so people can dip in and out of seminars and workshops that appeal to them, as well as spend time getting expert advice from the various trade stand holders.”

Switching to veal production and installing a milk vending machine has helped one Somerset family boost their dairy farm’s income, as Aly Balsom finds out.

hen Josh Hares returned home in 2014 after time working away from the farm, he was keen to carve out a niche for himself in the dairy business and work with his family to make more of what they produced on-farm. In the two years which followed he identified two new income streams which would add value to the business and help the family

take back control in a challenging market environment. By producing veal they have been able to tap into an emerging market and make dairy-bred beef calves a profitable enterprise. At the same time, installing a milk vending machine on-farm has proved a profitable and increasingly popular move. Mr Hares says: “Expansion when margins are so tight is not sensible, so making more of what you have makes sense. It is not all about

income and margins, but it is always nice to feel like you are making progress. You can get down and disheartened with the industry – it is better to be doing something, rather than nothing.” When Mr Hares rejoined the farm in East Horrington, near the city of Wells, finding a way to better manage dairy-bred beef calves was high on the agenda following a period of six years shut down with TB. “At the time we had horrendous

TB. Initially we were keeping bull calves to 20 months and selling them at a restricted market. We had a lot of stock, putting pressure on winter housing, grazing and labour, and they were not making much at market – they were averaging £650-750, so they probably were not making us any money.” Keen to avoid shooting bull calves and find a more profitable route to market, Mr Hares contacted Tarrant Valley Livestock, which produces dairy-bred veal under the Brookfield Farm brand. At the time, the company was looking for year round calving dairy herds to supply calves younger than eight months for veal production. The fact calves went straight to slaughter at a young age proved the perfect solution for the Hares as it worked with TB restrictions and reduced stocking densities. The pricing structure available also meant they would receive a strong price for non-castrated, horned dairy-bred calves. “For the last group of five we sent we averaged £3.08/kg, including bonuses,” says Mr Hares, who runs the 200-head Holstein Friesian herd with his mother Judith and brother, Jacob. The base price is calculated as the R4L market price from 2 Sisters, St Merryn, minus 60p/kg. Bonuses are then available, depending on weight banding. For example, Mr Hares receives a 25p/ kg premium plus a 5p/kg bonus for animals of 145kg or more and a 20p/kg premium, plus a 5p/kg bonus for animals from 125-145kg. 120kg is the minimum weight. The fact calves are on-farm for a set period of time means the family 120 | JANUARY 13 2017

The milk from the hut will more than pay for a man’s wage, so it is making a difference JOSH HARES can better track costs and profits. Calves are now selling for about £400-£500 a head, with costs at about £320 a head, including labour and transport. “Where before we were potentially making no money, we now make about £100/head. We are pleased with this,” says Mr Hares.

Requirements Investment to get the operation up and running has also been minimal. The family spent about £4,000 installing additional pens, troughs and straw racks to fulfil Freedom Food requirements. There are also plans to put up an additional purpose-built calf shed. The fact calves are forward booked onto a slaughter date by Tarrant Valley means everything has to be in place to ensure growth rates are maintained and animals are ready within eight months. Mr Hares believes this focus has helped calf rearing as a whole. “It has made us focus on everything so it has benefited heifers as well, which will help us hit a target age at first calving of 24 months.

Most calves tubed with four litres of frozen colostrum, over two feeds, in the first eight hours of birth Calves left with the dam for 24 hours Most are moved into individual hutches Calves are fed two litres of milk replacer, twice a day, increasing to three litres, twice a day Provide a small pelleted

We are averaging 25 months at the moment,” he explains. To better track growth rates, the farm has also enrolled on a youngstock scheme with their vet. As part of this, all calves are weighed up to 100 days old. This shows they are generally achieving target growth rates of 800g/day, which Mr Hares puts down to good colostrum management and feeding a quality concentrate (see panel, above). The installation of the milk vending machine at the end of the farm drive has been a more recent development in the family’s mission to add value. As an Arla member, most of their milk has been sold at a loss in recent months, understandably impacting on morale. Having looked at various options at the start of the year, they decided to look at installing a milk vending machine to make the most of their location on a busy road in East Horrington, close to the city of Wells. In August, Mr Hares bought a second-hand vending machine with bottle dispenser. Then he set about getting the appropriate documentation from the Foods Standards Agency – though he admits this was probably the wrong way round. “Buying the machine was the easy part. You need permission from Environmental Health at the local

council. It took two months to get the paperwork signed off,” he says. The vending machine cost £6,500. A shipping container was also bought and converted to handle and pasteurise the milk at a cost of about £4,000. Another £4,000 was spent on a second-hand 35-litre pasteuriser. Due to the TB issues, they chose to invest in a pasteuriser to reduce the risk of being banned from sell-

Growing for 2017, the event will include: ing raw milk should they be shut down with the disease. Having opened the milk hut on October 22, demand quickly outstripped supply, with the family having to invest in a new 110-litre pasteuriser within two weeks. Customers pay £1 for a reusable milk bottle and £1 per litre, serving themselves at the vending machine. All milk is less than 24 hours old.

Income Mr Hares says: “I budgeted selling 40 litres a day and 10 bottles, so the gross income would equate to roughly the set up cost in year one. But we have sold 3,000 litres in one month and 1,500 bottles, so it is about 100 litres a day.” The farm produces milk for 24ppl. The additional costs of pasteurisation and labour means

the total cost is about 45ppl. Bottles cost about 50ppl, taking into account buying, labeling and sanitising. All in all, this leaves a healthy margin, though Mr Hares admits it is difficult to know if they are surfing the crest of a wave. “The milk from the hut will more than pay for a man’s wage, so it is making a difference. Assuming we still sell 80-90 litres a day, which may be the norm, it will definitely be worth it,” he says. Overall Mr Hares believes the milk hut has helped add income and improve customer engagement. “It was driven by low milk price, but it is satisfying turning a situation where you are not making money into a situation where you are. “It is really positive to do something new and to get enthusiastic about something,” he explains.

AUCTION marts across the UK were reporting a slow start to the year in the week to Tuesday (January 10), according to AHDB figures. Steers provided the only bright spot as they rose 1.23p/kg on the week to 192.41p/kg. However, young bulls were the big losers, as they fell 6.99p/kg to 177.1p/kg, and heifers were also back 4.59p/kg to 200.41p/kg. There was little movement in dairy and beef cull animals.

MOVING UP

Edited by Danusia Osiowy 01772 799 413 danusia.osiowy@fginsight.com

Last month, Farmers Guardian announced it had joined forces with The Louise Hartley Memorial Fund to launch a scholarship to help young people progress in farming. Danusia Osiowy speaks to two youngsters whose travelling inspired their careers.

Grab the opportunity to travel AIMEE MAHOY I WAS interested in travelling to Switzerland because it is not a member of the EU. In fact, while I was there, the UK voted to leave the EU, which the Swiss people I met thought was a good decision. I had seen pictures of beautiful scenery and cows on mountains and wanted to see how their agriculture compared to ours. I wrote a profile page before I went and this was used to match me with a suitable host family. It listed my hobbies and things I wanted to do when in Switzerland.

Being given the chance to travel is important as you can develop so many skills and become more independent AIMEE MAHOY

Location I stayed in Laupersdorf, near Oensingen, which is west of Zurich and not far from the northern French border and the city of Basel. The family had about 30 milking cows plus replacement heifers. They also had about 100 laying hens for eggs and some pigs too. I was involved with all tasks

on-farm, which included milking cows, feeding calves and heifers and moving groups of cows to different pastures on the mountains. I also fed and weighed pigs ready for market, fed hens and got hay down from the loft. My favourite memory was getting cows in from the mountain the first

day. It was 30degC and they were not co-operating, but I did it and on my own. I was so happy when they

were in ready to go into the parlour for milking. I was surprised to learn the country is almost split down the middle with a German-Swiss-speaking side and a French-Swiss-speaking country. I was on the Germanspeaking side which was good as I know some basic German. Being given the chance to travel is important as you can develop so many skills and become more independent. Communication skills are key, especially in a country where not everyone will speak clear English. It broadens your horizons as well and you can take ideas and bring them home and equally share ideas and knowledge with others. Swiss people, particularly on farms, work very hard, as a lot of their work is still manual. Never underestimate what you can learn in a short space of time. I was there for two weeks and feel I learned a lot about Switzerland and also myself. Aimee Mahoy, poultry adviser at the NFU, travelled to Zurich in Switzerland via the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs Travel Programme.

NEIL MILBURN I FIRST travelled to New Zealand with my best friend in 2010 when I was 18. I had just finished a two-year farm apprenticeship for a local farmer/contractor and felt the time was right to go and gain some more experience and explore New Zealand as I had heard so much about it. I completed that season, which lasted about seven months, and returned two years later for another season, but in the South Island in Geraldine, mid-Canterbury.

New Zealand was beautiful. Literally every corner you turn you need to take a picture NEIL MILBURN

Silaging I worked for a large silage outfit, then the following year decided to complete the 2,000-mile harvest in Minnesota, USA. In New Zealand we stayed in a house which was nice and handy to the local pub, but in America we were always on the move from farm-to-farm and state-tostate, so we lived in massive campers, which had all your usual home comforts. I have a lot of awesome memories, but one which really stands out is being let loose in a big Kenworth truck with my combine on the back heading south to start harvest in America.

New Zealand was beautiful. Literally every corner you turn you need to take a picture. Also, a lot of Kiwis seem to like to walk bare-foot, which was kind of weird. I do not know why, but it surprised me how nice the

Americans all were and how interested they were in our country and where we had come from and what we had done. It is so important to travel because it makes you such a rounded person as you are

forced to make relationships with people and look after yourself. Some would say it is character building. I really could not recommend it enough. I spent 14 months away in total which is quite a long time to be away from family and friends, but nothing had changed at home during that time. Neil Milburn works on a 647-hectare (1,600-acre) mixed farm in Northumberland, comprising 324ha (800 acres) of combinable crops and the rest grass for 200 Stabiliser suckler cows and 1,100 Suffolk cross and Mule ewes.

BEYOND THE FARM GATE In the first of a new series to spread health awareness, Emily Scaife meets a bowel cancer survivor who is keen to raise the profile of the disease within the farming community.

B

efore I went into hospital I wanted the surgeon to know I wasn’t just another body for him to deal with. I’m a farmer. I love being outside with my livestock. “And I needed to know despite whatever he did to me in that operating theatre, I would still be able to return to my normal life and farm.” Wayne Smith was only 46 years old when he was diagnosed with bowel cancer. He had noticed he was needing the toilet much more frequently so, not one to ignore things, he went to his local GP just down the road from his business, Oak Barn Farm, Inkberrow, Warwickshire. “The next thing I knew, my trousers were down and the rubber gloves were on,” Wayne jokes. But it very quickly became clear this was no laughing matter. The GP revealed she had found a lump and would refer him to a specialist – but that she needed to prepare him for the worst. “She said I needed to let my family know that it was likely I had cancer. My world fell apart,” he admits. “We ate healthily, my fiancée Sue Crawford grows all our vegetables, we have our own lamb on the farm, we breed our own pigs – you think you’re doing all the right things. So when you get that lifechanging diagnosis where do you go from there?”

Operation It took just six weeks from the initial GP appointment for Wayne to undergo all the necessary tests and receive his official diagnosis – but as he sits in his kitchen he says it was the longest wait of his life. “It was a really quick turnaround, but if you know you’ve possibly got cancer that six weeks between suspecting and knowing becomes a slow-motion period of your life where you’re not sure what’s going to happen.” As he sat on a hospital bed, the specialist arrived to tell him that there was good news and bad news. “He said he was 99 per cent sure it was cancer but he’d be able to operate on it,” Wayne remembers. “And following the operation I

Wayne Smith and Sue Crawford are determined to celebrate their second chance.

“I wasn’t just another body for him to deal with – I’m a farmer” might need chemotherapy and possibly even radiotherapy. “The reason why I was having to go to the toilet so frequently was because the tumour was sitting in a certain place, so my brain was being told there was something to get rid of, when there wasn’t. “In one way I was really lucky because it meant I noticed it quickly and went to the doctor early.” Just one week later Wayne was on the operating table, ready for a six-and-a-half-hour procedure which would change his life.

Wayne decided to write the surgeon a letter, telling him all about himself and how important a successful surgery was to his quality of life. “I needed him to say that I could get back to my normal life and still farm,” Wayne says. “I also told him that Sue and I were engaged and planning on getting married – and that if he did a good job I’d guarantee he’d have an invite. “He saw me afterwards and said he had operated on a lot of people

but he’d never had a letter that had touched him so much.”

Post-op After coming round from the anaesthetic, Wayne wanted to get back to the farm as soon as possible, so he threw himself into adapting to his new life and body. “The doctor told me I was young and fit from working on the farm all the time, so I should be out of hospital in five to six days,” he says. “So, of course, I was determined to be out in five.” FGinsight.com

He followed all their instructions to the letter and more besides. Whatever distance they gave him to walk, he went a little bit further, determined to get back to the old Wayne. He only bent one rule. “I wasn’t supposed to do anything exciting when I left the hospital,” he admits. “But Sue’s new sports car had been delivered, so I couldn’t resist driving it home.” Prior to the operation the pair had prepared the house for his return. “I sold my Dexter tractor to fund the new walk-in shower,” Wayne says. “In one way it was sad, but in another way it never started well so I was pleased to get shot of it.” To start with Wayne used a colostomy bag, but he quickly opted for irrigation to pump water at 38degC temperature into his stoma. The water thoroughly cleans the area, before the contents are emptied into a toilet. It has given him a much better quality of life and enabled him to get back to work. And get back to work he did, gladly returning to tending to the farm’s Saddlebacks, Gloucester Old Spots, sheep and two holiday cottages.

Chemotherapy Wayne is the first to admit he dreaded the prospect of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. So receiving a phone call on July 26 to say everything had been successfully removed and there was no need for further treatment was the best case scenario. “The nurse who called me said everyone was in tears at the meeting when it was announced. Not having to go through potentially another 12 months was fantastic,” he says. There are still hurdles to jump through – awkward airport encounters which saw Wayne set metal detectors off have inspired him to create bespoke training for airport staff and cabin crew. “For national security, I completely get they need to check it out,” Wayne explains. “But they

didn’t know what a stoma was – which was especially difficult on the return journey when English wasn’t their first language and they had a gun. “My background is in training as I used to work for The Prince’s Trust, so this is my chance to turn cancer into something positive.” He is also hoping to enter the world of after dinner speaking to raise awareness of bowel cancer (not ‘before’ dinner, he is keen to emphasise). “It is the fourth most common form of cancer. “A lot of people, particularly those in the farming community, struggle on, but that isn’t an option with bowel cancer. It will get you. If you catch it early enough nearly everyone recovers. We created the hashtag #save1family because if you can save one person, it will save a family going through what we did.”

The future Wayne’s partner Sue agrees that bowel cancer doesn’t just affect the person diagnosed – it has a ripple effect which touches multiple lives. “The thing I was most concerned about was whether Wayne was actually masking what was going on in his head, because we all know how bad farmers can be at bottling things up. “I don’t think I’ve ever cried as much in my life. I was pathetic and in tears all the time.” At this point, Wayne reaches across the kitchen table and takes her hand.

“No. She was brilliant,” he says with tears in his eyes. The couple have continued to grow their diversification business and were recently a finalist in the Digital Innovator of the Year category as part of the British Farming Awards. Their promotion of green energy and creating awareness surrounding the environment has ensured they have found their niche in the luxury farm stay sector. The couple have now been running their business for 11 years and it shows no signs of slowing down. Realising the impact of living in a stunning rural location, the couple felt they could further attract international and domestic guests by establishing a stronger digital presence. Keen to engage with the local community and rural shows, the pair know their audience, which consists of 1,916 followers on Twitter and Facebook. Wayne and Sue pro-actively post images of where to eat locally, local attractions and pictures of the area, especially on their popular Pinterest page, which boasts more than 2,000 followers and is the go-

to place for customers thinking of visiting. This, Wayne says, is an interactive way of allowing future guests or current bookings to see the list of possible things to do in the area. A blog is also written, which tells of their stories and events taking place on-farm. There is no denying that surviving cancer changes your outlook on life, but Wayne and Sue have decided to celebrate their second chance. “When we were in consultations at various levels with various different people I came to realise I didn’t want to be referred to as his ‘partner’, or ‘fiancée’ – I wanted to be his wife,” Sue says. “It made me really appreciate him and what he does around the farm and I wanted to marry him.” Wayne and Sue will be married on May 28 at Inkberrow, before coming back to their farm to celebrate the very meaning of being together through sickness and in health.

M

y initial thoughts when I started writing this blog was I was glad I actually made it through to 2017, as 2016 seemed to be an ‘annus horribilis’ for departing celebrities. It certainly makes you appreciate why we should make the most of the brief journey we have on this planet, and perhaps youth really is wasted on the young. Early January has seen the usual round of pigeon chasing and assessing what state oilseed rape crops are in after a tricky autumn, where lack of moisture hampered establishment, rather than the previous year, where flea beetle was the domineering force. It is now a crop which is not only proving challenging to get established, but is costing significantly more to grow than it did 10 years ago. In my opinion, it has moved into the ‘high risk’ category, although the rewards may be great if prices and yields remain stable.

‘With all the hype about soil degradation, isn’t it time to wake up and smell the coffee’ The Oxford Farming Conference has just finished and, although I did not attend, social media allows us to keep updated with events which took place. Among many things was Andrea Leadsom’s proposal to abolish the three-crop rule. There was a staggering statistic from Konrad Brits’ brilliantly engaging lecture on coffee that some 70 million cups of coffee are consumed daily in the UK – it is probably no

surprise to learn the UK is one of the fastest growing coffee markets. Another theme which stood out was the importance of soil degradation and the need for appropriate soil management. This has been spoken about a lot recently, but it is a subject which is not going to go away and neither should it. We have a duty of care to future generations and, as custodians of the countryside, to look after this most

precious and vulnerable of resources, as there won’t be any more of it built. There is a lot of discussion and focus on building soil organic matter and improving soils and I am glad we chose to introduce cover crops and move towards a no-tillage system three years ago, as the benefits are clear. With all the hype about soil degradation and its damaging effects, perhaps it is time to wake up and smell the coffee?

Farmers Weather by Dr Simon Keeling

Continental neighbours have it far worse WINTER side-swiped the UK at the end of this week and, as I type, we are expecting several more days of colder weather, but spare a thought for our continental neighbours for whom winter has arrived with a vengeance. Thermometers in Russia have widely fallen to -40degC during the week, creating a dense, cold pool of air across the Eurasian landmass which is going to be hard to shift. As the winds turns into a more easterly direction, this cold was able to flood into central and eastern parts of Europe starting last weekend. France, Germany, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, 134 | JANUARY 13 2017

p134 135 Jan 13 SHIRL BB GG.indd 2

Turkey and the Balkans have all experienced freezing temperatures and even at Palma on the Balearic Island of Majorca, the temperature fell to 0degC. Despite the area of low pressure which changed the wind direction bringing some snow, it is relatively rare for an easterly wind in Europe to be accompanied by vast snowfall. This is usually reserve for when milder air flows from the Atlantic, meeting the cold block and creating heavy snowfalls along the line where the two airmasses meet. A battle has been raging among computer models as to what impact this weather would have in the UK.

As so often happens, we may well be on the front line between the cold block to the east and the milder flow coming from the Atlantic. Despite a trend towards colder conditions, it could be some western areas see a few milder days this week, while to the east the cold remains. Whatever the details, farmers should be prepared for some freezing nights; nothing out of the ordinary, just a cold hit of winter weather. But if the temperature dips to -10degC or below, spare a thought for residents of Camp Summit, Greenland, where overnight minimums of -55degC were recorded. Now that is cold.

NEXT WEEK Powys James Powell Cheshire Phil Latham

‘Few problem cows have gone ‘up the road’ with mastitis’ Devon Henry Gent farms 120 hectares (300 acres) and the same area again on short-term agreements, all grazing, near Exeter. All land is organic and he sells milk from his 300 cows to the Organic Milk Suppliers Cooperative. Married, with grown up children, he has a team of five people looking after the dairy herd and followers and also runs chickens which go to a local abattoir.

I

have recently done the figures for the annual herd health plan and it has been gratifying to record low levels of mastitis, lameness, infertility, assisted calving and metabolic disorders. With nearly 300 cows in the herd, we have used antibiotic

treatments on only a dozen cows over the 12-month period. Low use of antibiotics is a target in itself, but the really gratifying aspect is the underlying level of health – we have not used antibiotics because our cows have not needed them. We dump milk from treated cows down the drain to the slurry store until their withdrawal period is over. Then we feed their milk to calves (via a pasteuriser) for the rest of the cows’ lives. With so few cows having had antibiotic treatment, it is no problem to feed all their milk to the calves. Very few problem cows have gone ‘up the road’ with mastitis. The number of cows which died on-farm, or were slaughtered on-farm, shows room for improvement, but the overall culling rate is satisfactory. Overall, I think the health performance has been excellent and the credit for this superb achievement goes to the team.

We have got to where we are now by hard work over many years. We have also had help from other OMSCo farms in a local discussion group. In this small group of like-minded farms, we have had complete honesty about animal health. The idea of a ‘stable’ discussion group is for farmers themselves to generate non-technical practical and affordable suggestions for the host farm’s problems. We operate like a CFP group, but with emphasis on health and

reducing antibiotics, rather than profitability. We have all shared with each other our successes and occasional failures. Some pioneers have been doing antibiotic-free farming since before the first contracts for organic milk, more than 20 years ago. Others plunged in at the deep end and soon learned to swim. In my case, I got in at the shallow end and gradually improved. Progress was slow, but always pleasing, and, in the end, we seem to have got there.

‘Avian diseases can present many problems’ Egg production: We have always been involved with farming, with my great grandmother setting up the egg enterprise in 1933. Egg production can be a technical and precise operation, which is fine for me as it suits my scientific side. When I heard about the NFU/ABN’s Poultry Industry Programme I knew I had to apply. It is a scheme for 20to 35-year-olds which gives young farmers like me the valuable chance to get first-hand knowledge from poultry industry peers and experts. Training: I had the opportunity to undertake specific training one cannot always get first-hand on-farm, such as an understanding of market trends and industry pressures, teamed with learning about cutting edge technology. Winning the Egg and Poultry Industry Conference’s Young Poultry Person of the Year award at the end of the programme was a pleasant surprise. Part of my submission for this helped combine my passion for poultry with science and avian disease – a hot topic for any poultry farmer, especially given the recent case of avian flu and Defra’s announcement about the housing of free-range birds. Disease: Avian diseases can present many problems for farmers,

not least the possibility of large culls and the resulting huge financial losses. But there are many things a farmer can do to offset against this threat by practising good biosecurity, being

vigilant and prompt reporting of any concerns to their private vet. Biosecurity: Keeping an eye on foot dips, making sure vehicles are disinfected and reducing site access are just three things which can improve biosecurity. Good biosecurity is absolutely key, particularly given the unprecedented threat we face. Not only farmers, but anyone connected with farms has a part to play here. From sales reps, pest controllers and feed trucks, everyone

should be alert to stop disease from spreading. The advice also equally applies to keepers of backyard flocks. The NFU is already involved in providing workshops to inform and educate farmers about reducing the risk of avian diseases spreading. I hope these continue and grow in attendance to help spread the word there is more we can do to tackle this ever-present threat. MORE ON AVIAN FLU See page 1 and 3.
