    Are they piching them on to a net on the ground and then reloading them?

    Used to be a common sight around here to see rigids going with square bales for the boat and not unusual to see a lobsided load either!

    Glanbia must be selling it cheap to win the bid with their transport costs being what they would be vs local competition

    that load is a thing of beauty.

    I'm lucky to have only done so many bales that I can think fondly of the work

    You obviously dont deal with Glanbia...

    They take the "Buy cheap , sell dear " model very seriously .

    €10t would easily cover transport as they were surely loading out of the port heading back up the road. Glanbia have many different prices for the same product, usually with the same costs aswell

    All hands turned up for the herd test !!!! Remember years ago when we had sheep a rather pretty female student vet turned up on placement , it was great for two weeks we never had so much help in the shed ... even lads who never worked for us turned up to lend a hand ........ she actually runs a very good practice locally now .

    The 1st time I had the vet you speak of out to do a job
    Was to skull 5 small yearlings . An unpleasant job , but brightened a bit by the view.
    She informed me she had never done it before but , we will give it a lash

    Went without a hitch.

    She’s a very good vet and not afraid of anything... for a small woman she’s well able to get stuck in ..

    There has only 1 male vet in these parts in at least 15 years .
    I met a retired local vet in Supervalu a couple of weeks ago . He told me he is 64 , and there was something like 5 % of his year female . Now it would be gone to over 90 % .
    I couldn't fault 1 of the dozen odd female vets I have dealt with in the last 20 odd years .
