    I'm looking for a feeder wagon that would be capable of feeding out chopped bales of silage, pit silage/draff and be preferably light enough to take out into fields pre lambing/calving to feed fodder beet.

    Cost to setup and run an umbilical slurry system

    just a matter of curiosity. If we are all forced into nvz and our contractors become to busy I suspect this is a route we will be forced down. We currently only run one tractor on the mixer wagon and our self employed tractor driver stores his tractor here which has now been roped in temporarily...

    Being lazy here, anyone done the rough cost of each, got the kit to do both, clamp tieing up two good barns that could house young stock or straw, have to find an extra set of hands to run trailers for clamp. Use thick side sheet and double top sheet in clamp, use 6 layers of wrap on the 6...
