Silage / Straw / Hay Price Tracker


interesting way to load i prefer that way travels better but not many farmers like to unloaded
Used too move all bales with flat 8 at my dads ... didn’t have enough straw one year and a wagon and drag came with a load and I unloaded it all 1 bale at a time with the shear grab 🤦🏻‍♂️
5-10 years and an extra forage barn’s paid for itself in the savings then. Fortunately we haven’t had to buy in silage for over 10 years....
Always seems wrong doing that when it that good, but business is business..... Could you not buy poor stuff? Less money?
I’ve got a fair bit of dry haylage some over year stuff too. I just didn’t want to run short this is coming from 2 different places and it won’t be available in a week or two. It’s well into March now this should see me out hopefully I’m keeping some straw for lambing ewes on. We will sort through what’s what and might eat more not sure yet cattle will eat a lot anyway whatever we do.

Early moves to target wild oats

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
