Anyone one got a fork mounted brush for a tractor/telehandler?

Something at least 2m wide?

Any recommendations are they all pretty much the same?

We have a Sutton hydraulic three point linkage road brush.
It's not the heaviest built machine but it's pretty good.

It has no metal bristles as we have cattle and don't want wire around then.

Sweepex is good but as others said either needs to be dry or soaking wet and preferably raining, if you try and brush up straw you will spend ages getting it all out of the bristles

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...
