Bentworth Email Distribution Centre

The Villager

Without trying, I seem to have become the Bentworth email distribution centre. I keep two separate email lists of people who live in Bentworth; Bentworth and Neighbourhood Watch, although most people are on both. I try to keep email addresses private and do not intentionally pass on anyone’s email address without their permission. At the last count there were nearly 180 addresses on the lists. ...

Farm Diary

The Villager

The ewes are grazing stubble turnips at present. These were sown in September and provide fresh feed now that the grass has little nutritional value. The sheep initially eat the green leaves but then learn that the turnips themselves are preferable being sweet and tasty providing high sugar and therefore energy levels. The alternative for the hopefully pregnant ewes is hay, haylage or silage as a bulk feed, but this is expensive and requires more management, machinery etc. For these ewes which are due to start lambing in early March they will also receive some concentrate nuts from mid Jan onwards. The aim is to produce lambs that are fit and healthy when born but not too large otherwise there will be difficulties at birth. ...
