hello been in a meeting at work today all onabout environment etc had all the top dogs from environment healh coshh health and safety blah blah mainly on our theme horticulture but it touched on agriculture aswell, a big issue they touched on was silage clamps on farms,the european union is reportadly seriously considering making silage clamping illegal on european farms due to increasing numbers off pollution due to run off from clamps, if this gets the go ahead and they think it seriously could it will come into force in 2010 only wraped bales would be allowed and pollution levels from the stored areas of these bales would be monitored and if any pollution would be discovered then huge fines would be inforced on the farmers.

my only comment is, BA###RDS

they're doin nowt for our economy. its utterly ridiculous, why don't they just ban farming?? that would be easyer for them, because thats whats happening.. slowly farming is being banned by the EU cuz its cheaper elsewhere and farmin is taking up space

As ive discussed with DJ before, the government is gona have to sort some things out, or farming will die.

Pollution is all a load of crap. Sure we're polluting the environment a little, but nowhere near as much as scientists say.

Hi
If it were so easy to get out of there.
But somehow I doubt that it includes making concrete pits illegal,or not?
But that is kind of contra productive for big farms since it would be pita.
Thanks Lutz

well all these chiefs (tossers) where saying that it looks very ominous that it will happen they touched on the matter that tighter inforcements had been tried and wernt affective for clamps

Silage clamps are definitely the most economic way for silaging. I agree to Rusty. This will only lead to another cutback in farming.

F##k
this is what the fking government dose, all around the world all they do is screw the faarmers. without farming how would people eat? and what? mice, and rebbits maybe. i sure hope im not around by the time farmers die off.
i made a topic about this, this makes me pi**ed off and sad. farmers going bankrupt, there was a bean farmer we rented our land to, he went bankrupt and he is now doing roofing. this last year 5 farms were sold, and one is now ag mechanicals yard, and another a wrekers. dont ask what the others are doing.

in canada the cost for chemicals and feul goes up, food raised price a considerable bit, but the farmers keep getting less, wtf.

by the way our family farm is getting drastically downsized, 3 combines and about 420 acres, reason, we went in the hole, about 70g's

that is dumb, with the polution things, i bet there are other places that make more pollution than a few clamps
