    Bale unroller

    Will the likes of a hustler bale unroller manage solid centre chopped haylage? I currently feed them out with a McHale straw blower, but after all the years of bedding and 10,000 ish bales of haylage, it's starting to show it's age. Will an unroller be slower feeding out a bale? It's a bit...

    Quicke Q companion weighing device

    Anyone got one of the quicke weighing screens, the Q companion? I was thinking it would make it easier and more efficient to know how much baled silage to feed cattle and sheep through the winter. Also knowing the weight is dung would make nutrient budgeting a bit less guesswork. However, the...

    Currently have an X form (cherry products) 6 foot 6 wide, but wondering if my loader will cope with something a bit bigger, and if so, what? Can't find anyone who makes anything bigger for a loader tractor. Keep looking at telehandler ones, but maybe they're too big for a loader tractor...

    Social media and especially the BBC are, we know, spreading bollox about meat reared in the UK. Why aren't the compulsory levy bodies that are supposed to promote our produce doing anything????

    Android tablet farm software

    Is there farm software that runs on an Android tablet? I have used shearwell data software for the cattle, flock, field and medicine records for years. However my PC is getting long in the tooth to say the least, and all the other farm software runs on my phone. So can I do away with a...

    Quicke softride behaviour

    Ok I've replaced my quicke leader suspension accumulators..... again. Question; when the suspension is switched on after you've been lifting weight, should it spring up when the valve opens? I think the lock out valve on mine has been plumbed into the lift side of the rams, not the...

    Enorossi V rake

    Anyone got one of these wheeled V rakes? How do you do the end rigs and points if there isn't a baler following them round to make space? How are they in heavy damp stemmy grass? How well do they tow at speed, say for an hour on the road to go move damp straw away from the farm?

    Strapping round bales

    Three high round bales on their can. Throwing the cross straps over from the ground is no bother. Any tips on doing the same for the long front to back straps? There's not always a boy around to lift up who'll happily scamper on top of the bales laying out the straps. So how do you put them...

    High price rams bad publicity

    The sheep industry is in the doldrums. Breeding female sales have struggled, averages little more then they were 20 years ago. Fat price is again being lowered, and confidence in the future is arguably at an all time low. Yet the press is full of the record prices paid by a select few ram...
