    Bit of whole crop today. Doing just over double the originally intended area to make up for all the silage we are feeding at the moment.

    He's left quite a generous stubble. Not rolled perhaps?

    Was thinking the same. Bit of a waste

    I don’t think wholecrop is great feed at the best of times, adding more straw isn’t going to help it!

    I don't think it's brilliant either, but every inch of stem is needed this year...

    My uncle told me today he's going to need a third cut, if he can scrape some together. As beef and sheep, I don't recall him ever having taken a third.

    Well dang my breeches. So far today doing WW wholecrop, the chopper has had a small fire, one of the tractors has had a senior moment and stopped working and the loadall carrying out more additive took sympathy from the chopper & caught fire too. None of the fires were serious and quickly dealt with but really.

    At least the new pad is holding up :) :) ......... so far

    Well these things come in 3s apparently, and it is Friday the 13th:whistle:. Glad there was no major damage done(y)

    Are you using the new pad after only 3 days? Braver man than me:nailbiting:
