Sorry, I must be a bit thick, but there's no commentary. So what is the alternative to spending £500k? Are all these combines bought secondhand? Nothing said in the video.
Apologies Oliveau,your not thick! no commentary on this one but there will be on another upcoming video. All 3 combines were purchased around 5 year old point and then are run for 7-8 years. Much less capital cost than one new one and much greater capacity,mainly serviced in house also. Will have some ownership cost comparisons with single large new machines to put up later in year

Yes that makes sense - it would be interesting to know the approx purchase price compared with new, and the cost of maintaining them for the 7-8 years use, But to me it makes much more economic sense than buying gleaming new ones.

Despite an average growing year for most crops, many growers managed to go above and beyond their predicted max yields, with Lincolnshire grower Tim Lamyman taking the top spots for his wheat yields and his world record breaking winter barley yield.

The highest cereal and oilseed yields achieved at harvest 2021 were announced at this year’s Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) Awards on Wednesday 24th November at the Croptec Show. With award presentations by Tom Bradshaw, Vice President of NFU, 24 farms took home the evening’s top awards for highest yield and highest potential yield achieved for wheat, winter and spring barley, oats, and oilseed. The 2021 winners came from all corners of the UK, as well as from as far afield as Finland and New Zealand.
