Why does it seem an issue to put a clock in a machine that can keep the correct time.....£60k Manitou..... Clock loses at least an hour and a half every 100 hrs.....new Holland.....not as bad but can't keep the time.....buy a £1 watch off eBay.....probably try accurate..... Joke
I think there calibrated to the speed the French work at. Your working to fast slow down a bit.

My problem with the clock on John Deere R series command centre is its too bloody small and I can't read it without my glasses on. Latest one has the bigger 10 inch screen but the clocks still as small as the older 7 inch screen.

In fairness the clocks in our Fendts keep the correct time!

Guess its the old adage of "You get what you pay for".... ;)
Our Fendt keeps the time as well. I'd be interested to know the reason for such poor time keeping in some machines.....

Seiko kinetic divers watch that NEVER comes off my wrist.
worn every day for work, as you can see by its face. Feel lost, naked & vulnerable without it
Mobile phone is always in shirt pocket, too inconvenient to get it out to check time

How many tractors have seperate clocks ?
I can’t think of any I’ve ever driven or owned that ever had a clock anywhere other than as part of the radio / stereo ?
In which case the fault is with Sony or Pioneer if the clocks are slow ?

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...
