    We are likewise scratching heads at the minute, we are in a heavy dairy area so there is demand for maize, beet and wholecrop so may have to look into these shortly if this weather persists. Also looking into westerwold grass seeds for 3 cuts, graze with weaklings early next spring and sow barley back into it-just all ideas so far but may become reality in another week to 10 days.

    Not sure whether it counts as dramatic but at the moment we have a howling gale trying to blow half the garden into next door's field again.

    No doubt we could have done without the latest washout, puts things back another few days, I am reminded of the phrase @bruceythom used a few years ago, "wouldn't this weather rot your bollix"

    I know some in the trade have being saying that spring barley seed could be scarce but what's the story with maize and beet seed especially as lots are thinking similar to you BB.

    One hell of a night out there. High winds and driving rain. Trees down around at home along with spot flooding and the one night one of the outside tank farm pumps decides it has had enough. A 20 min repair has taken us over an hour and 3 of us are soaked through. At least I had a change of clothes in the locker. Now time of a sandwich and a coffee.

    19mm here. Not as bad as I had feared going to bed last night. I believe it was much worse further south.

    Absolutely soul destroying here at the moment. I had to let my frustration out on a barrel in the shed tonight.. it wasn't full.

    Did a share of F'ing and blinding myself today. I'm sick and tired of the endless foddering, the wet, the cold, the skutter and constantly under pressure trying to get work done ahead of the rain.

    My wellingtons sprung a leak so I ventured into town and bought a new pair . I reckon that should give us two months without rain and if I bought a new rainsuit there would be dead wildebeests in the Barrow valley .

    I understand what your saying. Went out Monday evening with the wet gear on to bring cattle in from the fields fed them out some silage and went back in home about 8. Walked the fields this morning and although it had stopped raining the wind that was blowing was wicked. The fields were full of crows and I was just guessing that the earthworms had come to the surface because of the soil saturation.
