    Been threatened several times but we are quite exposed here so need the shelter.

    They are a true mark of a 1980s house!

    Shelter belt here of them, they were wrongly sold to my Dad as a dwarf variety :no:

    Each year they get a bit closer to the house as you can only trim back to green, go further & they'll stay brown, they are now about 12' wide :scared:

    Cut 50 acres of silage on Monday for 4 different lads, rained heavy every day since, leaving marks with the tedder in spots, think this will be a job for the welger rather than the fusions

    Ground conditions are getting worse, I’m dreading bringing any baler in now

    Would you not be better off staying away with the tedder? Just row up and bale

    You’ve made me feel better,left a good 25acres or more out of 175 acres of 3rd cut,I’d have some similar pictures if I’d have taken any,I’ve tortured myself enough without seeing pictures to remind me.

    Two 7500's and 2 chaser bins in 6.5 acre field, took longer to get all into field and hooked up than it did to cut it, at least I had 28 acres for them yesterday evening. All done here, no idea of yield yet but they said these were some of the better crops of barra they had cut, so happy enough

    There must be some mileage on that machinery, South Tipp to Meath and Lord only knows where in between. Was there a cranky Scania driver waiting to be loaded from the chaser? :lol:

    Didn't come across any cranky drivers, was only chatting properly to one yesterday while waiting for combines.
    Those combines will have plenty of engine hours compared to drum hours, they do a fair speed on the road 43 or 44 km/hrs. They came from Delvin to here and were in Maynooth before that, were going between Slane and Ashbourne after, not too far.

    I ted all my own silage too on the farm, especially this time of year with second cut stuff, I find it leaves the bales in better shape when that bit drier

    I know you have to do what customers want.

    But I'd have raked it up and let the ground dry between the rows .

    Raking it gets it as dry as tedding it anyway IMO if its left raked for a day.
