We had afternoon tea for everyone at the farm to introduce Andrew Reeve our new Transport Manager and Paul Botsford our new Farm Manager to the team.
We have started running a second sugar beet cleaner which has come out of retirement. To keep up with the increased yield this year and the reduced permits at Bury factory due to a major breakdown we have put 3 lorries on a second cleaner delivering into Wissington. Melvin is loading his lorry using the cleaner he used as man and boy.
We have started the last lift of sugar beet. Bryon is on the tractor and trailer keeping the harvester running,
Last night I was the guest speaker at the Steeple Bumpstead Agricultural Discussion group. The evening started with dinner at Mr and Mrs J Suckling. The group had over 50 members in the hall. I spoke about controlled traffic farming and Px Farms. Good to see some familiar faces from the old days.
