Currently has 16.9 38 and 14.9 24 but want to go wider. Looking at 520/70 38 and 480/70 24? I think those will work but not 100% sure. Will need wider front rims but rears are fine. Will be going down the vredistein route

We run that 520/480 on my 6506, Seems to work lovely. Tractor was on 600/540 so they are a bit narrower and a bit taller steering stops right in she fairly dances now
Think mines on 15 inch rims?? I really can’t remember now

What work do you do with it? I would go bigger if you need to get 2 other rims anyway. My 6910 was on 650/65r38 and 540/65r28, found myself a complete set of 710/60r38 and 600/60r28 for little money, really pleased with them. The hole dimensions for rims on your tractor are really common so it shouldn't be hard to find something that fits.

Main jobs is on the post knocker but also do a lot of tanking and silage carting. Would like a bit wider but thought might hamper power too much
 

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...
