    New Holland Cab Wiring for Mounted Two Way Radio’s

    When I did ours last year, I mounted the 2 way in the slot next to radio. Then ran the fused positive and mounted it on the feed to the fuse board in cab pillar then found a good earth for the negative

    Which forage harvester for longest chop length?

    Cows are ruminants, the longer chop length allows them to ruminate for longer, i.e. getting more nutrient out of less grass/silage

    Yes, they might even use Sudbury as JCB only.

    I'd be surprised they go to NH with Russells just down the road pushing them out. Although I have heard rumours of a change with RVT

    Ex teat dip drum for silage additive?

    Would it be safe to use drum which previously had teat dip in them and use them for silage inoculant? I’m concerned that there maybe traces of iodine which wouldn’t be very helpful to the bacteria. They would be thoroughly steam cleaned out, would they be ok or am I asking for trouble?
