Tip of the week
This weeks Tip of the Week comes from Simon Mills, based in Dorchester. Fed up with holding a roll of barbed wire at arms length on a pole while he unrolled it, he set about converting an old milk churn carrier to take the strain.
Mr Mills bolted two lengths of steel to the outside of the trolley – each had been drilled to create a 19mm hole through which a length of M16 threaded bar is placed to support the barbed wire roll. To keep the wire roll central, spacers are placed at each end.
Once on board, the end of the wire is secured and then it is just a matter of pushing the trolley along. FARMERS WEEKLY is offering £50 for each idea we publish.
