Neighbourhood Watch

Crimestoppers The Villager

The police would like to remind everyone that there are some unpleasant folks around who prey on the elderly members of our society.

Farm News

The Villager

Harvest and planting are now complete. The wet September changed to a fairly dry October and the winter crops for 2018 harvest were planted and so far are looking pretty good with even emergence and no “holes” (bare patches) evident. The seeding process varies a little between fields but usually consists of the following operations – spraying the stubble of the previous crop to kill the weeds and volunteers (the seed lost from the combine that then germinates), a cultivation to a depth of about 15 cm with 6 legs followed by 2 rows of discs and a heavy press wheel to condition the soil.
