Lighter evenings, warmer temperatures and the emergence of snowdrops – spring is on the way.

Spring is a hectic and busy time on the farm. Tasks such as ensuring equipment and machinery is ready for a busy year ahead, preparing soil for crop planting and getting ready for lambing and spring calving are already underway. Despite unpredictable weather – 2021 has seen some of the coldest February temperatures on record across the UK – spring is a time where farmers must plough on in the hope for a productive and prosperous season. 

To make life easier, we have put together a guide on products that will help with spring time farm tasks.

Task: Maintenance of equipment

As the ground hardens and grass growth picks up, livestock will be put out to pasture. Before turning cattle out, it’s important to ensure maintenance of equipment is carried out and fences are inspected and repaired if necessary. The days are lengthening but during early mornings and late evenings it’s still dark and temperatures can be on the cold side.
