The presentation he gave us was a mixed bag of slides...

    Hi all, I am a final year student at Harper Adams, and as part of my dissertation I am undertaking research into Dairy farmers opinions towards the new voluntary code of practice and whether they believe it will make a positive impact on the industry.

  • Apples and Hops

    On the 18th September I was treated, along with other members of the Worcestershire NFU, to look around a very special part of Worcestershire. The 200 acre farm is owned and run by the Capper family; Mark, Richard and Ali, and they are very specialised in growing apples and hops. These are two crops...

  • 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?

  • Cattle, Panto and NFU

    I've just got home after what's been a busy weekend. Friday and Saturday I was at the Limousin Show and Sale at Carlisle. All I can say is; wow! There was some tremendous stock there...with a tremendous price too! My temptation to bid on some pedigree heifers which sold for 1400gns was luckily...

  • 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 ...

  • CFE

    To avoid a case Chinese whispers if I relay some of the facts wrong, I’m not going to try and explain what exactly the Campaign for the Farmed Environment (CFE) is, instead I’m going to be slightly lazy and just give you the link to the website... and just say that it’s a voluntary...

  • 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. Having given DEFRA secretary Caroline Spelman a telling off this week for not taking farming seriously enough, this morning it’s emerged government plans for a badger cull to tackle bovine TB are being delayed. The setback...
