WCF summer ball

Last night we had a wonderful evening at Girton College Cambridge. 

£19500 was raised for the Worshipful Company of Farmers with people’s generous contributions for the Auction and bidding. 

Peter Notman and crew

Peter Notman Nuffield scholar and crew have come over from Australia to tour around Dairy and farm businesses. They bought a flying camera which was brilliant and I’ll post on you tube. We have moved from the Hybrid Volume on barley which averaged 9.34 t/ha so far and the glacier barley is not in the same competition. We have started spreading Fibrophos to boast the nutrients pre drilling the Oilseed Rape. 

Lorry inspection and tight driving skills

We started the annual lorry inspection today and finish tomorrow. The boys have them looking smart. 

You can tell good drivers when they can reverse lorries down drives and through stable yards which cars could hardly fit.  Barley moisture  tonight was 13.5%. Tomorrow will be the first day of harvest. Yippee!
