    Snap, got offered this standing grass. To far gone for the milkers, but will save buying hay for the drys. Field I’m turning is for bales to go along the edge of the clamp as it over flows, as we have some concrete to lay next it

    Was a clean cut up and down, vet said better left and just dry her off. Blood was clotting and could draw milk from the end 🤞if it had been across and severed blood vesicles, which run up and down, it’s a different storey. Every days a school day.

    Cows on a 4 acre silage fog last night, thought they’d be happy on that. But no, made a break for it. Electric alongside a knackered wire fence, there was a casualty 🙁 Hoping it will stitch and dry off early.

    Cows, grass and some trees to remind @Beef farmer what they are 🤣 Another arrival. 19 cows left this month to finish the spring block. And a batch of heifers after last years disastrous mating 😕

    Legal requirement is 4.5 I believe. Ours will collect below 6 for one plant and below 5 for another. Neither of them Arla plants 🙈 problem is you never know where it’s going to go so just cool to 4.5. But no lower, electric is dear.

    Would that not indicate less than ideal compaction at clamping? Always nice to pull the sheet back to a perfect top 👍

    For the case of discussion, i’ll try and find out. Nobody was counting properly, but the first 12 acre field would yield at least 10 loads, straumann 3601 box. In a crop like that we wouldn’t cope on the pit (well not in a manner that I’d be happy with) with a chopper and a 0.25 mile lead.

    Bit of grass on. 5.5 hours with a box and very handy lead and we’ve only scooped up about 15 acre 🤪

    Twice, but often two paddocks as well. Far off in the day and closer to home at night. Most of the platform requires a road crossing. Bliss this week. Cows are next to the buildings at night, so can go straight out to graze from the parlour

    Box is due anytime, we’re just wondering if we are brave enough to pull the side sheets out, fairly breezy 😬 meanwhile, moved the night fence. Girls cleaning up well

    After a wet start this morning, we’re nearly ready to row up first cut 🙈 would have rather gone last week, but no weather still earlier than last year. What a difference some rain makes.

    Kuhn plough

    Don’t suppose anyone is breaking a Kuhn plough? My cross shaft broke on my 120 this morning. It’s a 50mm shaft part number 589009. Haven’t managed to even fund one to borrow, newer ploughs seem to be on a thicker shaft, which would work if the bolt on lugs where available too.
