Farmer vlogs

Introducing Robert Anderson

The first of this years farmer vlogs comes from Robert Anderson, Corskellie, who gives us a run through of his families farming enterprises and use of forage crops for livestock. The crops are back about 2 weeks currently, but we have a timelaps camera on his field of fodder beet which will give us some fantastic footage of the growing year.  View here>>

Introducing Michael Shannon

The second vlog of the series comes from Lanarkshire farmer Michael Shannon at Thankerton Camp who gives us an overview of his farming system and the role forage crops play on his farm. Like the crops at Corskellie, sowing has also been delayed by 2 weeks here. We also have a time lapse camera set up which will hopefully catch both the Swedes and the Swift throughout the growing year.  View here>>
