Expert tip of the month

CFE wants to help ensure pollinators are valued and managed
within farm businesses. By including CFE Voluntary Measures on fallow or unproductive land, you will benefit pollinators, as well as a range of other wildlife.Finding food and a home (sites for nesting and hibernation) is a challenge that faces all pollinators. Farming can provide these resources by taking-up relevant voluntary measures under the CFE.

The Cosy Coop

Long days and increasing day lengths encourage egg production so make the most of these longer nights up until September. When the temperature starts to fall, we will see a decrease in egg production to its important to keep your hens in a cosy coop!

Summer feeding of Koi

For good health and growth of Koi it is advisable to feed them a great deal of food in the summer as they are more active in warmer water and therefore burn more energy. Though, it is easy to overfeed them leading to poor water quality. By using an anti-microbial agent for your pond you are able to control the fish microbes.
