Yesterday cutting wheat at rakaia just 15 min from ashburton
Slightly Off Topic.
A video on you tube shows carrot seed being harvested in New Zealand 2 Wks ago,would like to know which area of NZ that might be.
I thought it very interesting.
As a retired tenant farmer I was not in favour of EEC farming subsidies as all they do is put a bottom in the levels that landlords agents can use as ammo for tenants
I'd guess NZ somewhere
Never seen a mcdon header on a class before
Had a 760 with 30ft claas front last time traded it for this 760 with macdon, we do a bit of white clover and direct cut the Flexi front macdon makes it quicker and easier, also in cereals he reckons a 1km faster cos of better crop flow compared to claas front
spud harvesting tomorrow
the swallows have snapped of a heap of heads, going from bad to worse, tge pitfalls of working away...might go 5 t/ha now.
Off tomorrow for another week then home for 3, ill be harvesting it as soon as i get home, has to be 13% mc.
Big farmer up here runs a Mcdon header on big lexicon.
A friend of mine runs one on new Holland down here he’s well impressed with it I’ve not been in same field as it working yet but all I’ve heard is good
Corn harvest Slovenia.
There's a lot of small seeds grown in Canterbury, don't know much about it to be honest but there's all sorts grown. Always interesting to see a different crop.
These guys seem to do a lot.
Many thanks for posting the picture.
Is that your kit with no harvest to cut?
Must take a man of steel to cope with that situation.
I can’t seem to figure out what the apparatus is on the back of the machine just in front of the camera
Temuka NZ this afternoon. Bit of a crap picture taken on my phone from the road.
It looks like a cotton harvester. That one produces round bales.
Excuse the corny music!
Glad I asked the question,we learn something everyday
Nah, not mine. Just there getting ready for cotton harvest
That machine is a JD CS690 cotton STRIPPER with an extended 12 m front for dryland. They have just bought a second that is still in town getting pre delivery work done. They are a $1,000,000 machine . . .
To the right of that ( just out of the picture ) is a JD 7760 cotton PICKER
Behind them are 3 x JD S690 combines that didn't turn a wheel this year . . .
The 2 strippers have at least 14000 hectares of work lined up this season - at $200 / ha . . .
What is the main difference between a cotton stripper and a picker?
