NEWS

Wales wide approach considered to tackle nitrate pollution from farms Wales will introduce a whole-country approach to tackling nitrate pollution from agriculture and improve water quality, the government has confirmed.

F

ollowing an extensive consultation on Nitrate Vulnerable Zones last year, work is now underway to develop a balance of "regulatory measures, voluntary measures and investment". This will also include exploring further options to provide farmers with flexibility, where these would achieve the same or better outcomes than a regulatory approach. Most respondents in the consultation recognised the significant impact nitrate pollution is having on water, businesses and human and environmental well-being throughout Wales and agreed further action was needed. The majority of nitrate in

groundwater in the UK is derived from diffuse pollution from agriculture, with the rest from sewage sludge disposal to land, atmospheric deposition and point sources. According to the British Geological Survey, the loading has significantly increased due to post-1945 agricultural intensification due both to ploughing of grassland and to increased fertiliser applications. 'Major source' The Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs Lesley Griffiths said agricultural use of nitrates is a "major source of water pollution". “Poor nutrient management is still a major problem across

10 | Working Farmer | www.workingfarmer.co.uk

Wales. Pollution of this kind is entirely preventable and is simply not acceptable in the 21st century. “We should not, at the end of 2017, see significant stretches of some of our most well known and popular rivers largely devoid of fish, proving just how much work remains to be done. “Wales’ waters need much greater protection from agricultural pollution and that is why I am minded to introduce a whole Wales approach to tackling nitrate pollution from agriculture.” Ms Griffiths said Wales has some of the finest countryside and stretches of water in Europe, which people have a "duty to protect


NEWS and enhance".'Details and implications' However, the Farmers’ Union of Wales (FUW) has given a cautious welcome to the announcement. FUW President Glyn Roberts, said: “This seems to be a far more proportionate way forward than some of the options that had been proposed, but we need time to assess the details and their implications. “As a member of the three groups which will be looking at these approaches, the FUW looks forward to working on approaches which are proportionate proactive voluntary approaches which deliver positive outcomes. “NVZ and other regulatory approaches are blunt instruments which often do not tackle the main sources of problems, and what can be complex problems. More targeted and flexible approaches can therefore better address the real

causes of problems, as well as increasing engagement with industry.” 'Evidence is clear' NFU Cymru has welcomed the plans. President Stephen James said the "evidence is clear" that there are a range of issues and sectors affecting water quality in Wales, however, the farming union said it recognises the role that farmers have to play in contributing to improved water quality in the years ahead. “Farmers take their environmental responsibilities extremely seriously and NFU Cymru has always championed an approach that sees the Union working in collaboration with Welsh Government and other partners,” Mr James added. “We are pleased that the Cabinet Secretary has made reference to the off-set scheme that has been operating successfully by a group of First Milk farmers

in the Cleddau Catchment. This scheme, championed by NFU Cymru members Will Prichard and Mike Smith, was highlighted in NFU Cymru’s consultation response, and subsequently, as an example of a workable alternative delivering measurable reductions in nitrates. “We are encouraged that the Cabinet Secretary intends to work in partnership with stakeholders to explore a Wales-wide approach to tackling issues influencing water quality through a flexible, outcomefocussed approach that will allow farmers to deliver improvements in water quality. “The Cabinet Secretary has rightly recognised the role of investment support as this highlights the significant costs associated with slurry and manure storage infrastructure on farm, and the Union welcomes this.”

Animal Housing

Housing Cattle

H

ousingWhether cows are housed in cubicles, straw yards or cow sheds, in order to maximise performance and to ensure satisfactory standards of welfare, the accommodation must at least provide for the animal’s most basic needs. As an absolute minimum, the housing must provide a comfortable, clean, well-drained and dry lying area together with shelter from adverse weather, space to allow the animal to move, lie down and rise freely as well as access to adequate food and water. All housing for cattle should include an adequate provision of calving pens and sick pens for isolation of sick or injured animals. All cattle farms should also have provision for isolation and quarantine of bought-in animals in a separate building, unless the herd is genuinely closed and never buys in replacement or breeding animals. If the housing system does not provide for these basic needs, then not only will both production and welfare be compromised, but it is likely that you are also failing to comply with the welfare codes and the law relating to animal welfare in your area.

Cubicles CubiclesCubicle management should be similarly well planned, as uncomfortable or unsuitable cubicles can lead to poor occupancy, wet and soiled cubicle beds, increased risk of udder disease and lameness as well as physical damage to the cows. Appropriate cubicle length will accommodate the need for both forward lunging space and rear clearance to ensure the animal doesn’t soil the bedding. Equally important, the cubicle should be wide enough for the cow to lie down without rubbing against the partitions, but narrow enough to prevent them turning around. The required dimensions of a cubicle are dependent on the size of the cow, however DairyCo have created a useful guide to calculating the right sized cubicle for your system. To compliment a good cubicle set up, a suitable depth and choice of bedding will ensure comfort when lying down as well as preventing knee and hock injuries. When choosing bedding, consider: Thermal insulation properties Softness, Traction, The use of lime under fresh bedding, not on top of it, Low risk of abrasion, Easily maintained, Cost effective Cubicle bases other than concrete should also be considered. Sand (must be washed) and limestone, in particular, have advantages over concrete-based beds with regard to cow comfort, but require careful maintenance.

14 | Working Farmer | www.workingfarmer.co.uk


Loose Housing Appropriate design of yards, avoiding dampness and contamination from water troughs and narrow entry points, is equally important. Separate housing of first calving heifers should be considered (see also Herd Health for more on disease risks associated with housing) The lying area must be under cover and bedded. The additional area may be inside or outside and does not have to be bedded.

Loafing Areas A loafing area is a space cows can use for behaviours other than feeding or lying- such as displaying oestrus behaviour and social bonding. Cattle can spend a lot of time utilising outdoor loafing areas, often using the area to regulate body temperature when humidity and temperature are high. It is advised that the loafing area size is 120% of the cubicle lying area. Loafing areas can include nonfeed passageways and non-lying areas. Although loafing is provided at pasture, the weather limits utilisation of such areas and thus an indoor loafing area with access to an outdoor loafing area is desirable. As with housing, the amount of slurry in the loafing areas should be managed, and scraped at least twice daily to prevent health problems and encourage use.

Cow Comfort A comfortable cow is a happy cow, and a happy healthy cow in turn, proves to be a profitable cow. Grooming aids are a great addition to any farm, and are often used extensively by cattle once installed. Grooming is a natural social activity for cows, and brushes have proven to positively contribute to the welfare of housed animals. Working Farmer | www.workingfarmer.co.uk | 15

UK dairy industry surpasses environmental targets The UK dairy sector has achieved an 18.05% energy efficiency improvement since 2008, according to recently published results.

W

ith this improvement, the sector has already exceeded the 2020 Climate Change Agreement and Dairy Roadmap targets of 13.6% and 15% respectively. The 2020 package is a set of binding legislation to ensure that EU Memebr States meets its climate and energy targets for the year 2020. The package sets three key targets: 20% cut in greenhouse gas emissions (from 1990 levels); 20% of EU energy from renewables; 20% improvement in energy efficiency.

The results for the dairy sector, from the Environment Agency in the Climate Change Agreement biennial progress report, are complemented by those of the 2017 Dairy UK Environmental Benchmarking Report, which details substantial environmental improvements within the UK dairy sector. This includes a 23% increase in water efficiency and a 30% increase in the amount of waste recovered or recycled since 2008. The main findings of the 2017 Dairy UK Environmental Benchmarking Report are;18% increase in primary energy

efficiency (kWh/tonne); 23% increase in water efficiency (m3/tonne); 17.5% increase in raw effluent efficiency (m3/ tonne); 56% decrease in COD per m3 raw effluent and a 30% shift in the destination of waste away from landfill and towards recovery or recycling. Dr Judith Bryans, chief executive of Dairy UK commented on the results, saying: “These are incredibly positive results which demonstrate the effective steps taken by the UK dairy industry to reduce its environmental footprint and meet the targets of The Dairy Roadmap.�

Carrbridge gamekeeper wins Polaris ATV in SGA prize draw

L

ong standing SGA member Ewan Archer expressed his gratitude to Polaris UK after taking delivery of his brand new Polaris Sportsman 570, won in the 2017 SGA raffle. The Carrbridge gamekeeper, who works at Kinveachy Estate, was handed the keys to the hard-working ATV at the organisation’s Perth HQ on Thursday after buying his winning ticket through the SGA member magazine, Scottish Gamekeeper. Fringed by SGA Chairman Alex Hogg, Richard Coleby of Polaris and Iain Stratton of supplier Stratton ATV Ltd, Ewan was delighted to get the first glimpse of his prize. After entering the annual draw every year since the SGA formed 21 years ago, he admitted he entered the 2017 draw more in support than expectation of winning.

proved to be on his side, though, and he was enormously thankful to collect the smooth riding sage green vehicle. “Since the outset of the SGA, my family and I have always bought tickets but I didn’t believe it when my wife informed me I had won this year,” he smiled. “A lot of the estates around about us are using Polaris to great effect for grouse moor management and for day to day getting about. “I am very grateful to Polaris. It is a very generous prize.” The 44 horsepower ATV is built for safety off-road, with smooth suspension and All-Wheel Drive on demand, single lever brake system and automatic transmission. It is already a highly popular choice on Scottish estates, as Director of Stratton ATV Ltd, Iain Stratton, acknowledged.

to see the 2017 prize go to a long-time member of the SGA family. On the back of successful partnership, the SGA and Polaris are set to renew their arrangement for 2018, with the raffle prize again set to be provided by the company. “It is really important we have partners like Polaris,” said the SGA Chairman. “I have used a 6 wheeler Polaris UTV myself for 5 years and it has been really good. In terms of this particular bike, it is a quality product, very sturdy with a good engine. I am sure it will suit Ewan perfectly.” Polaris UK District Sales Manager Richard Coleby said the partnership was a win-win for all parties and both organisations are looking to make the most of their continued association in 2018.

“Ninety five percent of our custom comes from sporting estates. A lot of gamekeepers will use them for feeding in areas they can’t reach with bigger machinery and for towing behind game feeders. It is great for deer extraction as well.”

“Shoots, estates and gamekeepers represent a big market for us, as a business, so it is important to support where we can in Scotland. We are probably the leader in the estates market so it is important for us to maintain profile. All our products are designed for heavy off-road performance so they really suit this type of work..

UK will be 'worse-off' under most plausible Brexit scenarios, report finds The UK will be economically worse-off outside of the EU under most plausible scenarios, according to economic analysis. Whether Brexit is judged to be success or not will depend to some degree on its economic impact, according to the influential US thinktank the Rand corporation. Much of the debate around Brexit has been focused on a 'hard' or 'soft Brexit', which relates to whether the UK should leave the Single Market and the Customs Union. However, there are a range of different trade opportunities and arrangements that could happen between the UK and European Union, and other countries, such as the U.S., post-Brexit. The chosen trade arrangement will largely depend on the UK's negotiations with the EU. 'No deal' Rand has explored eight plausible post-Brexit trade scenarios involving the UK, EU and U.S. after Brexit. Game theory insights were also used to create a better understanding of how a variety of factors might affect the outcome of Brexit

negotiations. The UK is likely to be economically worse-off outside of the EU under most plausible scenarios, particularly if the UK leaves the EU with no trade deal. This would reduce future GDP by around five per cent over ten years, which is a loss of $140 billion. Under WTO rules, the EU would also lose out economically, but nowhere near the same proportion as the UK — about 0.7 per cent of its overall GDP, which is $97 billion. Indeed, the British farming industry has stated its worry of the catastrophe a ‘no deal’ scenario and moving to WTO ‘most-favoured nation’ status would bring, severely impacting the industry's ability to trade. One report has concluded that a ‘no-deal’ outcome would lead to a collapse in trade, with a 90% drop in beef exports and 53% drop in lamb exports from the UK to the EU. UK-EU-US agreement The Rand says it is in the UK's best interests to achieve

some sort of open trading and investment relationship post-Brexit. The most beneficial trade scenario would be a trilateral UK-EU-US agreement, but this is seen as very unlikely in the current political environment because President Donald Trump does not approve of the TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Under this scenario, UK GDP would be 2.2 per cent higher – or 7.1 percentage points better – than under the WTO rules scenario. The report says this scenario would make the UK better off compared to its current membership with the EU. But farmers are wary that this scenario could flood Europe, and the UK, with cheaper, sub-standard produce, which will have a big impact on British farm incomes and food safety. Overall, the thinktank says it is in the best interests of the UK, and to a lesser extent the EU, to work together to achieve some sort of trade deal postBrexit.

New possibilities with the versatile Cultus

F

rom year model 2017 the tine cultivator Cultus can be delivered in three versions, customised for a range of field conditions. Because of this, there is a Cultus available for every soil type. Depending on the need for reconsolidation and weight distribution, the tine cultivator Cultus can now be delivered as a mounted machine without the hydraulic packer. Instead of the packer, Cultus is equipped with hydraulic levellers and carrier wheels. Cultus 300 in field - We have noticed an increased demand for having the opportunity to prepare the field for the spring drilling,

by cultivating it later in the autumn. By offering Cultus without its packer, the farmer gets a light machine well suited for moist conditions, says Johan Alsäter, product manager Soil at Väderstad, and continues:

From year model 2017, Cultus can be delivered in the following three versions: Mounted with the re-packer and mechanical levellers Trailed with RubberRunner and mechanical levellers Mounted with carrier wheels and hydraulic levellers

- The hydraulic levellers, which the driver is able to control from the cab, creates an even result and an open soil structure. Meanwhile, the robust carrier wheels ensure an exact working depth. Together with Väderstads wide point offering as well as the unique MixIn shin, the tine cultivator Cultus provide a very effecting mixing of crop residues, irrespective of field conditions. The new version of the machine, will complement the other versions in the product family.

NEWS

The Importance of Sprayer Testing Everyone will agree that accurate application of pesticides is not only desirable but essential whether for the environment, the consumer or the grower

A

ccurate and targeted use of pesticides is all part of modern agriculture. That’s why back in the mid 90’s the Chemical Application members of the Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA) devised a test for application machinery to make sure it was working as intended. In the early years of 2000 this test became the National Sprayer Testing Scheme as one of the main pillars of the Voluntary Initiative. NSTS now tests around 16,500 machines annually with the test also satisfying the requirements of the Sustainable Use Directive (SUD), which requires that all pesticide application equipment, sprayers, slug pellet applicators, granular applicators etc., need to be tested by 26th November 2016 and at regular intervals thereafter. NSTS is an accepted part of arable agriculture and requirement of the major crop assurance schemes and

supermarket protocols, requiring that farmers and growers have their sprayers inspected annually. This requirement continues with one of the annual tests satisfying the SUD requirements. The NSTS is available through a network of test centres who have qualified examiners available to inspect and confirm the equipment is of the standard required. The test is usually carried out at the machine owner’s premises and at a mutually agreed time. The examiner will charge for the inspection, the cost is commercial at the point of use. Additionally machine owners are free to use their nearest or preferred test centre. The operator or owner of the machine can prepare the sprayer for the test using a test sheet available from the NSTS website. Owners and operators are encouraged to take part in the test and will receive three NRoSO points for doing so. As confirmation of the result of the test the examiner will apply a pass sticker

to the machine and a copy of the test report form will be sent to the owner. Other copies are returned to NSTS Administration where the information is retained on a database of all tested machines. This information is available to Crop Assurance Certification Bodies and others for verification purposes. With the continued threat of more pesticides being lost, now is the time to contribute to accurate and targeted application procedures, NSTS testing helps achieve that. Having a NSTS test will also satisfy the Sustainable Use Directive which requires all sprayers to be tested by 26th November 2016.

T

oyo SUV and 4×4 Tyre Range

A new year can mean only one thing as far as Toyo is concerned – new tyres, and 2018 promises to be a big one in terms of new offerings from the world’s foremost off-road tyre supplier. First up, the Open Country M/T, a tyre that’s been designed to be capable and versatile, and evidence of this can be found in its high turnup, 3-Ply polyester casing. This sports hook shaped blocks and an ‘Attack’ tread design which equates to surprisingly civilised and stable road manners. Open, scalloped shoulder blocks bite into the ground and help to eject mud, snow, and rocks while maintaining off-road traction, whilst the ‘Over-The-Shoulder’ tread pattern (something of a Toyo calling card) offers unparalleled traction in deep mud and snow. Proven on the world’s competition stage, this tyre is the ultimate weapon in the war on poor grip and traction!  This year sees the Toyo tyre range evolve yet further, with the ever popular Toyo H/T being replaced by the U/T.

It’s a tyre which builds upon its predecessor’s impressive spread of capabilities, namely an ability to provide optimal ride comfort, quiet performance and long wear life. That the U/T can deliver so much in so many areas is down to its symmetrical, non-directional tread design, not forgetting its variable pitch tread blocks, a trait which means a significant reduction in road noise. The U/T is every bit as capable when the going gets sloppy though, hence the pair of deep evacuation grooves running its length. These have been carefully optimised to expel standing water and rain at speed, which is brilliant news for those of us who regular encounter such conditions – anyone living in the UK, basically. Full depth sipes go right through the tyre, meaning that mud and snow grip is sustained throughout the wear life of the case. On the edges, multi-wave sipes give lownoise stability in all weathers, augmented by stability ribs in the centre of the tyre to help reduce irregular wear. Suitable for Pickup Trucks, Vans and SUVs, Open Country U/T offers high mileage while providing safe driving in both wet and dry conditions. 2018 is set to

be the year in which the Toyo Open Country AT Plus makes a dent in the off-road tyre market, with the company hoping to build upon the solid foundations laid in 2017, the tyre’s first full year on sale. An aggressive asymmetric tread pattern ticks both form and function boxes, with an open shoulder design allowing easy egress of water and superb stability under duress. Sipes have grooved bottoms to really ‘bite’ into snow and loose surfaces, with a waved pattern ensuring superb stability and exceptional traction. Toyo has long strived to offer a tyre for vehicles of all kinds, which is why it shouldn’t be all that surprising that its SUV range is just as comprehensive as its off-road. Indeed, the firm’s portfolio of tyres suitable for SUVs is unmatched in this sector, with the Proxes T1-Sport SUV and Proxes Sport SUV (dedicated variants of Toyo’s iconic T1 and Proxes Sport tyres) being two of the most capable. Toyo is also able to offer the CF2 SUV and Proxes S/T, both developed with Sports Utility Vehicles in mind and therefore as at home on the school run as they are the British B-road.
