I have subscribed to 11 magazines, of which 9 have something to do with farming. The only one I'm savouring from cover to cover is Practical Farm Ideas. The fact that these ideas are from collegues in a somehow similar situation, that they have been realised under farm workshop conditions and have really proven their usefulness in the daily challenge of practical farming, gives your magazine a value I have never found anywhere before. I think your publication should be a must for any farmer who has more in his toolbox than a hammer, chisel and vice grip!

Farmer in hospital after this wheel fell on him, took 18 months for recovery. Decided not to handle wheels manually again and made a wheel changer.

Works as well in field - where you get the punctures. No caster wheels.

So good the local engineers are now making it as part of their range.

Positive story. Removes risk.


Cub Cadet (identical to Massey 20MD) carries this link box which was made to move calves which are all born in the field.

Box has clever arm which goes over ball hitch.


Mobile feed trough folds out to 24ft


Farmer has made two, one for in-calf heifers and the other for calves

Chemical store made from old oil tank.

Locks with a padlock

Useful idea for big farm where deliveries can be made and secured.

Better than delivering directly into chem store when it's difficult to check

Umbilical is not just for contractors says our contributor who gives his reasons - and a demo!

Practical Ideas for Practical Farmers

"PS keep up the good work. It is one of our favourite farming magazines along with the south east farmer. We have found the two main national magazines to hold less and less relevant to us but yours is always one that gets read multiple times by us and we enjoy very much."  from farmer Sam Kington when renewing on Oct 31, 2017
