  • Saving Fuel

    Hi Does anyone think there is a place for tractors having natural gas engines? Thinking about it, what about other farm equipment or road transport too? All this new shale gas seemingly out there in abundance. Will eall engines be natural gas powered?

  • The language of the CAP

    I can’t remember any German when I need it, but every time I come to French-speaking  Brussels it seems to be the only language that leaves my mouth. Having got off the Eurostar I couldn’t even seem to remember how to ask where the taxi rank was in English. Instead I frightened a poor, unsuspecting ...

  • A possible hairy situation for the NFU

    Dear oh dear. I can’t image the NFU team are a bunch of happy bunnies at the moment.

  • Hair’s apparent

  • Reasons not to be healthy

    I’m at the Hilton hotel in Birmingham at the moment for the NFU conference. It’s the third time I’ve been to it and I’m wondering if this year is proof I’ve finally made it in the world. For the first time ever my hotel room is actually in the main hotel block, is bigger than a [...]
