adding up the cost of remedial cultivations to repair the damage by the straw crews and the loss of OM and K and straw needs to be a good price.
Being 80 miles or so West of you, Brisel, the numbers here usually stack up.

The most difficult thing always to remember here is to re-invest that portion of one's straw income necessary to replace the nutrients lost, rectify the damage, etc, etc (typically 50-60% here) and not to allow one's accountant to divert it all towards a new combine.

Wish we'd sold all the straw standing, this year.

Selling by the bale, or by the ton baled, with us still responsible for all the baling, has made this weather into a triple whammy instead of just the inevitable double (the combines and driers).
Well said! It's nice having sold standing straw to just be able to concentrate on the weather for getting the grain in. If it's due to rain that evening, or the next day the customer can clear it 10x quicker than I ever could.

Blimey!
Who’s your accountant?

I’d like one like that.
Mine keeps telling me that doing things like using straw income to justify new equipment is “back of fag packet” accountancy!
