    Have you put every bale over a weighbridge??

    Because if you haven't its just a guess that you have had 2 ton acre of straw!

    Very surprised to hear your oats are fit as I haven't seen any so far that are near harvest.

    Started barley today. Bazooka. Bleached in colour and like pine needles. Not what I expected.

    Sold plenty of straw over the years of the same size from the same baler , to know that there’s 5 to the ton.
    And unlike someone, I don’t feel the need to exaggerate

    You want all three in just the one variety?

  15. Started my light labs barley today; glacier, a real let down. Well under the expected 3 ton on this land. Very uneven seed size. Plenty of needles. Hopefully the other 2 row and 6 rows will do better on heavier land. Straw v bleached. Moisture got down to 12.5.

    Finished the first field of cassia.im confident it's done 3t/a.c. and has produced ridiculous amounts of straw and for the year has produced a reasonable sample.

    Late this evening we moved back into some hybrid we tried this AM and it's threshing out much better after some sun but it's not such a good sample and I don't think it's going to beat the cassia it may be equal at very best.

    .
    Our glacier looks like being the same, not sure on yield yet only half way through the first field, but guessing it's nearer 2 and a half at a guess, also struggling to stop it going over the back with it being poor grain:meh:
     
  18. Yes same with losses. Seed going over not big enough to register but I guess if it’s that light I don’t want it in the sample tbh. Will be some green strips appearing if it ever rains again

    Experienced this last year with Belfry, albeit it in a very dry year on sandy ground. Have moved on this year.

    Funky giving a decent bit of pink straw.
