    Cow showing signs of heat while pregnant?

    Somewhere up to 5% show signs of bulling when they're in calf so it's very possible that it's all fine..The heifer might have been bulling and the cow had an itch on her back which also might explain it.. (It's not always good news though,I'm sure most people with cows have the unexpected empty...

    Some failure on the tractor you can't see(it's rolled down the slope below the road on the right of picture a fair way)..He came down out of the field with the yellow trailer colliding with the MF on the way through

    Power to run a topper

    10hp per foot is a rough long as you can keep the revs up and blades fairly sharp and not ask too much of it I don't see it's out of the question..We've got a 10ft flail on a 110hp MF which goes fine and we used to run it on a Case 5120 sometimes a while ago and that managed,albeit not...

    Leyland 285 (three times).... A beast when she was going right which was less than 5% of the time... I know the two people unlucky enough to be next in line to own our particular one, both cursed it very loudly for a fair while..

    LAMMA moving to NEC from 2019
