What are the McHale V6 like for making...

    Savilles, who act for my laird, have taken to emailing the rent notice with the subject heading of "demands". This seems a somewhat confrontational and abrupt way of asking for the money we tenants pay for the pleasure of using the laird's land. Is demands the normal wording for anyone else?

    Haylage bale additive? Convince me....

    So what are the forage analysis benefits of buying an additive applicator for the baler? How long to recover the outlay through improved feeding (assuming it does more than just make the bales smell nice when opened).

    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.
