After a brief look at the tedding with McCormick and New Holland, we see the raking with their brand new Claas 2-rotor and Case 90 2wd, and then to the lifting. Claas Jaguar 75 with McCormick 135 and initially, just one tractor/trailer. When the tedding is done there is more - another set is sufficient in this field next to the steading. Neighbours are helping, again. There are six tractors working today.
Getting 330 Cows In. With a Tractor.
Right in the middle of the silage run, comes the collection of cows for
milking. Not unusual? There are 330 here, and they saunter under a main
road via a creep (tunnel) and up onto the steading. Note the New Holland
which was mowing - that gave me a lift to the scene. Note silage trailers
passing - that was why I was there (PlasGwyn, for the record). Note - some
Jerseys and an Ayrshire or two, for quality I presume?
