We blew grain down wavin pipes and there was ferocious static electricity lepping around .
Are they piching them on to a net on the ground and then reloading them?
Used to be a common sight around here to see rigids going with square bales for the boat and not unusual to see a lobsided load either!
Glanbia must be selling it cheap to win the bid with their transport costs being what they would be vs local competition
that load is a thing of beauty.
I'm lucky to have only done so many bales that I can think fondly of the work
You obviously dont deal with Glanbia...
They take the "Buy cheap , sell dear " model very seriously .
€10t would easily cover transport as they were surely loading out of the port heading back up the road. Glanbia have many different prices for the same product, usually with the same costs aswell
Was Jane Smith standing beside you when you were taking the picture
Yeah Jane is one of our drivers. A lady of many talents.
Tell us more....
We were in the same class in college. I haven't seen or heard of her for a long time
Would she be able to put " Combine Driver " . On her CV ?
@jf 850 Yeah, her Father farms over 1000 acres of cereals. @TAFKAT what collage was that?
That's who I was thinking . I would know them to see , often met her driving on the road
Her father and mother came from same direction as my wife .
All hands turned up for the herd test !!!! Remember years ago when we had sheep a rather pretty female student vet turned up on placement , it was great for two weeks we never had so much help in the shed ... even lads who never worked for us turned up to lend a hand ........ she actually runs a very good practice locally now .
The 1st time I had the vet you speak of out to do a job
Was to skull 5 small yearlings . An unpleasant job , but brightened a bit by the view.
She informed me she had never done it before but , we will give it a lash
Went without a hitch.
She’s a very good vet and not afraid of anything... for a small woman she’s well able to get stuck in ..
Would a straight pin or a ball and spoon work better in that situation I wonder
This girl is well capable also, it's great to see women taking up the role "not the hole"
There has only 1 male vet in these parts in at least 15 years .
I met a retired local vet in Supervalu a couple of weeks ago . He told me he is 64 , and there was something like 5 % of his year female . Now it would be gone to over 90 % .
I couldn't fault 1 of the dozen odd female vets I have dealt with in the last 20 odd years .
What about the other 11?
I judge people on merit, I dont care about race, colour, creed of gender
