Looking for a fairly big hp tractor but nimble enough to go on corn cart etc.

I have demoed it and ti be honest really liked it, but I have never had a case before, so what are people's findings...

if you can manage with 265 bhp i would look at an mf 8s look very swish 10 tonne lift capacity too.

Local outfit Glovers Agri Contractors near the Wissington beet factory here in Norfolk bought one 3 years ago and have just taken delivery of a second one. Im guessing they must have been suitably impressed by the first ones performance to have bought a second.

Definatley need 300 on my 6m Claydon fully mounted.

Have to say I have never known a tractor pull like this one, the FPT engine is a beast and totally shocked me, also build quality was way better than I ever expected. Very pleanstly surprised.

The regional straw grinder man has Optums now. I guess they make a lot more sense than pounding tarmac long distances in a Magnum-sized machine when you can have the same or similar power in a handier frame. Listening to his at full chat all day grinding straw, it sounds immense. (y)
Just as our dealer told us when Optum came. It's for the people who want power close to Magnum but in a frame close to Puma. Optum had great visibility also. (y)
 

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
