oak trees

I have been planting acorns with great success, only to read that oak trees are poisonous to sheep. Has anyone had any experience with oaks? Years ago they were grown for stock and I have fed acorns to sheep in a drought with no problem

Peter on TV

I was very interested in Ray Martins story on Peter Andrews and the great work he is doing. I have been a natural farmer all my life, but my place just does not seem to look as good as it should.

Thank you for that Ian. I have had my soil tested with SWEP and they recommended a lot of lime 1.9 tons to the hectare, I was a bit surprised as the country has natural limestone outcrops and has never been supered
