Received mine today. Good read as usual but will you PLEASE PLEASE stop writing photo captions against a background that it is impossible to read. Photos are worth a thousand words but when the two are combined then it makes for a very well structured journal assuming that the photo can be explained.

There are quite a few instances in the latest Mag. where this occurs. Please remember that, by definition, most of your members/readers are getting on a bit and do not have binocular vision.

Otherwise thanks for your efforts.

Magazine - article offer

Post by RitchieLeslie » Fri Mar 10, 2006 1:24 pm

I would be pleased to write an article on how a software sales manager ended up with a farm and a 990, if anyone would be interested. At the very least I can write about the challenges of keeping a Brown running in a climate that ranges from -25C to +30C every year.....

If you guys want an article, contact me with length, layout and illustration guidelines and I'll put a draft together for you.

My two david browns get used nearly every day on my my farm to feed the animals, make and bring in the hay and many other general duties.

I have a 1494 with a db HD 90 loader which is my main tractor is used for all the feeding and untill last year did all the work on the 100 acres we farm and is now backed up by an older 1594 to help with some of the duties which are much easyier with two tractors and hedgecutting.

The bulk of the work is done on farm and we only really use contractors to wrap the round bales as i havent got a wrapper yet apart from that my two 94's do everything
