    I remember from 2012, the combine driver has a pic of cutting the outside headland of a field with a duck swimming in the tramline beside him :pac:.

    I have sympathy for the grain growers and every farmer who has to take a loss but why would he say he was standing knee deep when it was only ankle deep and in a tractor wheel mark. My wife noticed it and she knows nothing about farming. I had to rewind to see

    It makes a joke of the lets stand together nonsense of some. When one enterprise has no weather disaster that wiped out their years work, only a minor price dip into the red vs 4 years of skirting the line now for others all the worry should be for them. When really they want the goldilocks zone and fudge everyone else :rolleyes:.

    Jesus that farm is some operation

    Every young farmers dream?


  • Registered Users Posts: 758 ✭✭✭CHOPS01


    Serious operation alright. But would it really be a young farmers dream.
    Every bit of feed bought in so no on the land so to speak basically just constantly putting cows through the parlour and foreign lads doing it. Impossible to build any sort of relationship with your stock.
    How close can your nearest neighbours be, must be at least 5 or 10 miles. Wouldn't be for me.

    And the frightening thing is if one council gets away with that some faceless fcuker of an official elsewhere might get the same idea


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 165 ✭✭parishsavings


    Looks like a serious outfit he has in Limerick!
    And a nice farmhand!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,663 ✭✭✭50HX


    more to that than meets the eye i think

    we are all not butchers with 2 shops...........i doubt the councils would be able to get the average farmer to jump through them hoops

    fair play to him for keeping going

    yep

    the full story wasn't televised

    let's say the cc only acted as such because they were made to.
