It's always fascinating to see how others tackle similar problems to the ones on our farm... great to get that little 'light-bulb moment' when you find something which will work. We've made quite a few useful things from your magazine

64 - Vol 16 - Issue 4 - Winter 2007
More than 60 practically focused articles are directly geared to help all categories of farmers. There are 42 DIY workshop projects. Take a few moments to read through this list, and you will see why Practical Farm Ideas is becoming so popular among farmers not only in the UK, but in Ireland and Australia and Canada.
This issue has some brilliant ideas from a new dairy set up I visited - home made slit drains down the parlour, for example, so you can wash into the drain rather than pushing all the washings down its length. I also went around LAMMA with an arable expert. So instead of writing up press releases I was told "this is the place where the tine on my machine broke", "these bolts get loose daily", "here's a really useful design idea". A fantastic day.
