    Christmas is nearly upon us. And one of the best bits of Christmas has to be all of the magnificent food and drink! And, when it comes to all the magnificent food and drink, the best bit has to be the almighty Christmas Dinner.    But have you ever stopped to spare some time and think about all of the work that goes into your Christmas Dinner?    For example,...

    I have been doing some research into tractors recently, and I keep coming across these types of Videos. “Tractor Stuck in Mud” Tractor Stuck in Mud for four hours”, “Big tractors stuck in mud”. The fact that these videos exist on YouTube is not what surprises me (we all know there’s a lot of random stuff on YouTube). No - it’s the number of people ...

    A colleague of mine stumbled upon a patent for some spectacles for chicken. She was amused by the idea and emailed me with a link to the patent, which was applied for way back in 1902. It got us thinking about what other wacky and wonderful inventions have come out of the world of farming.    So, we decided to take a look around the web and see just what was out there - it tur...

      Now this one looks terrifying. The Stallion Shield, designed in the 1890s, was to be used to prevent stallions from masturbating...   Wow, now we really have seen everything. But why would you want to stop your horse from doing this? Well, the patent states that masturbation is ‘a habit practiced by many stallions if left without such guard’ and is &lsq...

      Protecting sheep from predation and other hazards has and always will important for farmers. This design, created by Mr J R Speer, dates way back to 1878 and was intended to prevent sheep from dog attacks.    In his patent application, which is now over 130-years-old, he stated: “I have invented a new and useful improvement in Sheep-Protectors”. He ...

      If you wanted to get your children into farming from an early age then this toy, designed by Martin Shrier in the late 1950s, would have been perfect.    Looking at the other patens Mr Shrier applied for it seems that he was a real toy nut. He designed a wide variety of stuffed animals, one of which was this truly brilliant, yet slightly bizarre, cow.  ...

    Glasses for chickens. What a fantastic design. This patent was filed over 100 years ago by Andrew Jackson JR in an attempt to prevent chickens from pecking each others’ eyes out.    In his patent documents Mr Jackson stated: “This invention relates to eye-protectors, and more particularly to eye-protectors designed for fowls, so that they may be protected from ...
