Michelin/ trelleborgs/BKT

936 is needing some new IF boots before long. BKTs are coming in considerably less than anything else, 5k less than one brand. Are they worth a punt? The trelleborgs have done well doing nearly 6k hours with tread left but side walls are starting to crack. Never run BKTs on high hp tractor before, anyone with any experience?

We have BKT on our 8360r and our 7310r and can’t fault them for grip but can’t really tell how they are going to wear as they are only 2 yr old but look good so far . If I had a tractor with 6000hrs I would go for BKT unless I was going to keep it for another 6000hrs . How many hours do you keep the tractors for ?

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...
