There have been a number of requests from members asking how they might help farmers affected by the flooding; In particular those on the Somerset levels.
Having spoken to some in that area who are involved in the coordination of effort, it would appear that the greatest immediate need is for livestock fodder.
If you have any hay or silage that you may be able to donate would you please let the office know. Lucy Mather will coordinate your responses.
Some transport is available, however until we know what donations are made, we will not be able to coordinate our effort.
If you have any other thoughts on how assistance may be offered please contact Lucy at the office.

Patrick Stephenson of NIAB TAG has run a series of agronomy meetings throughout the year from March with Woldmarsh sponsoring a place on the Agronomy Academy which was awarded to Liam Wallis.
The academy covered all aspects of looking after the growing crop and was both field and classroom based. Attendees were encouraged to ask as many questions as they wanted in order to gain the most from Patrick’s experience as an agronomist.
The last meeting of this year’s academy was held on Tuesday 12th November at the Woldmarsh office. This included a summary of everything that had been covered in previous meetings. Patrick also covered aspects such as the changeable weather patterns over the last couple of years and how they have affected the farming year. It was also discussed that drilling was approximately a month behind schedule and how soil temperatures had dropped dramatically over the last month.
NIAB TAG and Woldmarsh are looking to hold another Agronomy Academy next year, beginning indoors in February before starting out in the field in March. It was hoped that the Agronomy Academy could enter the agricultural college’s competition with the team managing all aspects of a trials plot. This would include everything from what variety was sown through to the fertilizer and chemicals applied throughout the season.
If you would like to join the Agronomy Academy please contact a member of the Woldmarsh team in the office by 17th January 2014. The cost of this will be less than £200 for a season’s worth of valuable tuition and advice. Woldmarsh will once again be sponsoring a place and are looking to award this in January, with the winner being notified before the start of the academy.
