The sledge, generally is pretty good.
The pea halum bales don't flow through it very well, grip the sides so to speak. Plus no stubble to talk of doesn't help flow either.
Did the first 3rd of the field with lots of swearing. Nipped in for a bite of tea and the good lady and kids offered to...
The sledge was playing up something chronic :banghead:
My wife offered to help :love:
I've no experience with bean or pea halum as a feed. Innocent post on another thread lead me to bale this for spin cycle!

Also it would have to be little bales. Growing seed crops here we don't let other balers on the place so id bale it with my small baler.
Plus I've had 1 pm already so fairs fair I'll see how that goes.
Ram on our ancient Legg 6tonner has been resealed a few times but now leaking yet again.
Rang the above at 2pm Thursday, the bloke on the other end knows his stuff! Mentioned the age of the trailer and he instantly reeled off the sizes, before I'd even measured it.
Turned up by...
W barley around 2.1t/ac. Very poor, thin and short. Late drilled though.
Seed peas a shade under 1t/ac. Nice sample, reasonably even crop.
Seed wheat, istabraq at the home farm, 2nd wheat. 2.2t/ac. Quite a bit of green,secondary tillers and bare patches throughout field.
Same seed wheat crop on...
Started wheat yesterday. Just the headlands.
Into the main block today.
Very poor, lots of bare patches :(
Yield wise, I dread to think. Will know tomorrow when we finish it and tally up the trailer loads. But well down.
