What if any changes are you going to make to you're current system with costs going out of control.

    The whole economy seems to rapidly heading towards a severe crash.

    A massive amount of business electricity coming to renewal at the minute that will be another big cost increase over the coming weeks.

    A very large portion of peoples disposable income has disappeared.

    Consumers and banks will most likely be getting very wary over the coming months.

    Things are going to spiral from bad to much worse very quickly..

    They better. It's all fenced with sheep wire and good thick hedging too. Even replace a load of stakes in the last few years. Those ones in there were around 12 years old and most were rotten/broken at the bottom

    Related to cost saving.

    Every April/May I'd give the sucklers 2 Rumbul & ALLSURE bolus. Going to stick with the ALLSURE as I think it helps with the AI (I have less repeats anyway, could be the Lepto vaccine either) ...but I was going to cut out the Rumbul this year. 38e a box/5 cows.

    I got the soil sampled and all grazing came back with Magnesium "High" and Index4 ...does that make me low risk and cows get enough from the grass?

    I do put out the odd Mag bucket thru out the summer also.
