You’re a lucky man only needs a ton.

It's not what I need It's what I can afford🤣. Grass really motoring now, auld boy was getting all excited today about getting silage cut as soon as it dries up, had to remind him that it's the 10th of May and I don’t red the plastic off the silo floor until at least the 20th.
