Woldmarsh Trials Open Day – 30th June 2015

Following on from the success of last year’s trials open day Woldmarsh are holding an open day at Rawcliffe Bridge, near Goole. This will be held on Tuesday 30th June in conjunction with BASF & Cropco Ltd. Members who attended last year’s event found it thoroughly enjoyable and highly informative.

The site at Rawcliffe Bridge has wheat variety and replicated fungicide trials alongside BASF’s environmental crop trials. The wheat plots include established and new upcoming varieties. The wheat plots have a companion crop surrounding them which last year was beans. The environmental crops include a wide range of options that are long established and can fit all ELS / HLS or new Environmental Stewardship Schemes.

The day will follow the same format as last year with refreshments on arrival a tour of the plots and lunch. The tours will be led, once again, by Graham Hartwell from BASF and John Poulton at Cropco Ltd who were both entertaining and highly knowledgeable last year. Graham Hartwell was highly enthusiastic about the environmental crops and members benefitted from his vast experience.   Both James and Cheryl will be attending from the office.

All members are welcome to join us at this free event for members.

If you would like to attend please contact Cheryl or James in the office to confirm your place.

Moisture Meter Clinic in aid of Prostate Cancer UK

Moisture Meter Clinic in aid of Prostate Cancer UK – 7th May from 10am to 4pm

Grainsafe is repeating sponsorship of the popular Moisture Meter Clinic for Woldmarsh Members on 7th May at the Woldmarsh office.

Any type or make of moisture meter or temperature probe can be checked against ISO-specified protocol oven test samples and a certificate of confirmation will be provided for Red Tractor Scheme compliance.

Grainsafe sponsors the clinic, but invite Members to make a donation to charity in return for the free service (suggested amount of £10 per piece of equipment)

This year’s charity is Prostate Cancer UK.

Prostate Cancer UK is the UK’s largest men’s health charity. The charity aims to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life.

In the UK, about 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives.

Previous years clinics have enabled respectable donations to be made to Breast Cancer Charities.

Also in attendance this year will be Keyline Builders Merchants (1pm onwards) and also WPA Health Insurance providers. These companies have kindly contributed towards the refreshments for the event.

If you wish to attend with your moisture meters or temperature probes for calibration or to speak to WPA or Keyline please call the office to advise so we can book you in.

Mid UK price rise from April 1st. Dispose of your waste now to avoid this. Free disposal of cardboard, spray can & fertilizer bags will remain.

To avoid the revised price of £90 per tonne for disposal of your farm waste, please visit Mid UK with your waste before April 1st. Booking to Woldmarsh offers you a discounted rate, although I have been unable to avoid the increase which is set to come into force in the near future. Free disposal of your cardboard, spray cans and fertilizer bags  remains free of charge at Mid UK providing you arrive with them washed and segregated.

Call 0800 310 1815 to book in your waste remembering to quote your Woldmarsh membership number.
