Annual inspection

We had the annual lorry inspection yesterday. Geraint and I went around the lorries and marked them out of 240. Full inspection from inside and out and under the body. A fantastic turn out by all off the drivers. Congratulation to Rob Dearman who drives J5 PXF. He won a day for 4 watching the British lorry racing championship at Donington Park. We all had a hog roast to celebrate the day and pre harvest event. Sadly the weather was a shocker but 52 of us managed to squeeze into the kitchen. 

Brazilian farmers visit

7 Brazilian farmers came to visit a UK farm practicing CTF. They farmed over 80,000 acres, mustly cropping maize and soya bean. 

I took them around the two blocks looking at soil conditions and rotational cropping and caught up with the Rogueing team who are pulling weed beet. 

Wayne, Alexandre and Michael where completing there training for spraying certificates.
Irrigator which is watering the potatoes for Bartletts was vandalised last night and a battery taken. 

Rogueing Wheat

We have a team of ten to help rogue blackgrass from the wheat fields where Rogueing is still financially feasible. Blackgrass is threatening to take away wheat from the rotation unless we get blackgrass removed and under control across the Eastern counties.
