    When straw is really used as a proper input re building uses etc it will really be worth money.

    Received the heady heights of a tenner for each heston of wheat and barley straw. A bit like the milling wheat vs feed debate, it is noted that both buyers for the power stations and those who supply more *ahem* fussy stock farmers pay the same rate. But the power stations will take I think 20% moisture straw - result is that if you send it to the power station you get your fields cleared more quickly, and less liklihood of it needing turning etc.

    Everyone has been saying to bale it as it will pay this year, but has been more hassle than it was worth really. Fing barley straw was too dry to get enough weight in a bale - what a sodding faff.

    If you got out more you would realise the illminster bypass takes you out to the m5 to access the north Devon link road. Pedantic ####

    The ilminster bypass takes you from Somerset cottage to south petherton no where near the M5 :scratchhead:
    to get to the M5 you have to go on down the A303 for miles or down the 358

    Your taking toooooo much cider lad, I’m on the M5 10 minutes after I leave the end of the illminster bypass, and up to 4 times a day I might add.

    Thats's the reason why the straw price is going through the roof!!!! Everyone's getting lost in Somerset once they get to the end of the A303, can't find Devon or Cornwall. Bloody haulage killing it not the crap harvest weather or short crops......................:banghead:

    I think if I loaded an arctic with hesstons in Aberdeenshire (If I could find any bales) and shipped it here it would be a touch over £200 per ton

    I cut up some old doors last winter to shove on the log burner, they were lightweight internal ones, and the centre was filled with compressed straw, with just the odd spar of wood for rigidity. Made in the 60s or 70s at a guess.
