We are getting on with the farming and watching the cost of inputs wherever possible. Colm was going to spray a plot for nettles. He was checking the cost and decided it was too expensive. In discussion with Tim, they decided to broadcast over the bad areas and put in the extra time and spot-spray the remainder.

Then, there was the chat about reseeding. In the last three years, we’ve concentrated on the leased heifer ground where Colm has the young stock. This has meant that the grazing platform around the shed is being bypassed. It’s a consequence of upgrading leased ground.
