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.
My neighbour is asking £88 for oat straw .
He has a tea bar in the lay-by before illminster bypass.
how the hell would he keep an eye on the M5 from there ?
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
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.
yep down the 358 which is not the ilminster bypass
bet I drove down the bloody thing before you did
Don't think I would bother asking you for directions in the future
The directions I would give you wouldn’t like much.
Comedy gold this thread.
Seriously though, there must be a fooking big straw power station just past Guths place......
I wouldn't worry , he knows it all
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......................
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
The end of the 303 is in Devon
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.
Obviously no fire doors then!! Lol
You should of removed the straw baled it and sold it!
