We had a lad that did silage for us one summer in the 80s. 7 days to cut 20 acres. There was some heat out of the pit by day 5.
There is an unmerciful bang of hardship off that video.... I love it
You'd nearly take a week of stone picking over that
All it's missing really is an old 5000.
Got caught for piking the sides but I had some help
We’ve come a long way,early 80s neighbours said it took a week to do a 16 acre field.
Well, we got lucky. 75 acres in in two days picking 10s. One man and a wagon.. very blustery for sheeting down. We were very lucky. Lots of places a mile away got washed out of it.
Seen a very nice krone 330 wagon this morning,not sure what he was doing because you need armbands here at the minute.
Job well done if i do say so myself,,,
First glance I though there were lots of long narrow fields that had been cleared of silage, on closer inspection that's a decent bit of rowing up! 5 swaths into 1?
Yes 5 into 1, picture not great getting dusk when i passing down the road from it, a cunt of a field falling every which way with steep inclines.
And a few poles to keep you on ur toes.
I'd love a bit of that now,
That’d be torture not therapy
Not at all when you can walk away when it gets too much..!
I lost the wheel cover off the pz haybob in a seven acre field of hay. Father made me stay in the field until I found it.
The wheel coming off altogether wouldn't have been too far away although they have been known to be so stuck on even that wouldn't cause it to fall off.
It's a sacrifice to the rain God's!!!
Was it the price of a replacement cover or the harm it might do to the baler is what kept you there ???
Sun is shining and the wind is blowing. Couldn't ask for better silage weather here
We may go west for the holidays ,
Costa del galway
Well its wrapped up and waiting to be put into the shed
