When submitting an entry you should first try and indicate how many acres your outfit harvests and try to match the machinery used with the workload......... KEEP IT AS REALISTIC AS POSSIBLE ;)

2. The pictures can show any part of harvest (Including model fires Gav ;))

3. Any item of machinery can be used but try to keep it realistic.

4. It is ok to use older machinery in for example a 2008 collection considering some contractors and many farmers still do use old machines

Well Ash Tree Farms under way again, usual kit with the 625 super II and the 575 and 590 hauling,

here we are getting under way in the northen field,



Second field this end of the farm hence the 590 in the yard emptying out the mf200 from the last field


The 625 off to the other side of the farm to start the southern fields , the crop looks as good as the northern end thats for sure

While the lads are of the other side we have broken the 185 out to start baling, usally on yard dutys, but needs must, shes using the  mf124 baler and cooks flat 8 sledge we invested in recently to speed up bale handling



We stack and haul using the 185 again as we are still cutting, along with the new cooks bale trailer, stacking is done with the 550 and flat 8 handler


And while we have the time, we have got the new tractor out for the first time, fitted with our bomford super trim bushwacker,got started just as we finished the last stack of 64 bales

These pictures show M.Murray contracts busy cutting their own 20acre of spring wheat. first picture shows the combine entering the field attaching the header. the JD6920s is used for carting grain with the 10ton fraser and the 5410 will be a back up with the 5ton trailer. the other drivers with the 2 7530's were busy putting out slurry and muck at the time ;)
