Don't think I've ever seen so much straw baled as this year.
They most probably won't be able to give it away.


That's what I've been thinking. We're baling for grass weed control reasons, bales are a ball ache.

Well thats harvest 2018 wrapped up. Got off to a quick start this morning, dived into wheat until the current bun had toasted the last field of spring barley, got that off just as the clouds came, back into the last 3 fields of wheat finishing in one of the last drilled, a mere 4.2ha.

Baler men are chasing everywhere, one of the locals due to come back for more has gone off to find a replacement baler now his MF heston sized one went up in smoke, he's struggling to find any replacement and then it turns out another buyer mistook whos straw was whos and ironically baled up/carted off what was due to be baled by the massey contractor, not that he could bale it :lol:

Well, after a drive round I reckon that, apart from the odd field of beans, that's it for this harvest.

Everything down, and most of it baled this year. Now for the Autumn planting rush!!!!
