I was just listing it for the guys in the farm shop, up to them what they took in the end as I passed on all enquiries to them, I put it up at top whack expecting offers around 40 so I would guess somewhere near there?

Wasn’t mine but was a very good friends and was kept at our farm for the last year he had it, good little machine, very nimble and did very little, I think I ended up driving it more than he did! I must admit I’m more of a Deere man but as far as things go it was a very handy little machine, plenty of grunt in a compact package

That's good to hear, what sort of work did your friend use it for was it mainly loader work did he have it from new? Sorry for bothering you but thinking of buying if I can get at right price.
That's a lovely line of Deere's you have there

Yeah had from new and a bit of loader work with regards to conventional bales so not very over worked and then most of the hours on it were spent topping round grassland would make a cracking tractor for anyone tbh, almost a luxury item for him when he had it, generally say in the yard for up to two weeks at a time without moving at all, sometimes longer
 

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
