Each magazine has some useful tips, and the writing isn't biased towards manfacturers - it gives an independent view of things. I value its practicality.

Are you getting useful cost cutting ideas from your advisors?    

 Are they advising how to spend rather than save? 

Many farmers have devised ways to do the work at less cost, both in time and money. We invite, discover and encourage them to share what they have done. The farming tips we have learned are truly amazing. 

Try a subscription and you’ll want more. You’ll soon see how advertising and sponsorship from BigAg directs and restricts the content of regular farm magazines.  

  You can discover dozens, hundreds, of cutting edge ideas on this website. As always, you’ll ask yourself “Why didn’t I do this years ago?” 

You know that farming is facing a crisis, with input and farm gate prices yo-yo-ing, government farm and rural policy remaining vague, and advisors often working on figures from 2020 which bear little relevance today.
