    Mulika milling problems??

    Anyone else having problems moving to mills? Was told this morning mills have stopped taking it due to low sulphur levels causing baking problems. Fine on all the other tests 350 hag, 15 protein, no ergot, DON/ZON all fine etc etc

    Changing business electricity suppliers,

    Eon today for 12 month contract 9.67 night 14.24 day, slightly less than last year. Eon marketing dept obviously don’t talk to the sales dept because the monthly updates from them have been saying how the wholesale price of energy has halved in the last 12 months

    To replace or repair - costings

    To replace or repair - costings

    Just spent about 5K on refurbing an old Manitou 626 that has been here for 25 years. Engine rebuild, injectors, injector pump, rad repair, new crowd ram, a few ram seals/pipes, complete transmission overall. Should be good for another 25 years!!!

    First baler on a serious budget. Whats good whats not?

    NH 658 available here, good condition overall. 50k bales, new belts 18 months ago. Goes well, advertised in the classifieds, looking for £3500 @Cowabunga has given a very fair appraisal of the baler. It's simple and can be repaired by a farmer. I bought a Claas Variant 360 as a replacement...
