Prolonged wet weather means we should look at lighter machines

There are few natural events that cannot be turned to some advantage and I suppose the appalling wet and cold weather we have suffered has given drainage contractors and manufacturers of rainwear and winter woollies a great boost to their sales.

It has also meant that one can identify drains around the farm that are not performing properly and mark them for repair work next summer. That is presuming what we would call a summer arrives at some stage.
