Silage 2009 competition for fun

If the topic becomes 'congested' we will split it into relevant sections

That way we can split easier :) :)

Each entry can contain a maximum of 8 photos.

2. When submitting an entry you should first indicate how many acres your outfit works on and try to match the machinery used with the workload......... KEEP IT REALISTIC PLEASE :D :D

3. A seperate section will be made "in this board" to allow people to comment on the entries but any posts under this title, other then the entries will be deleted and a numpty awarded!

4. Once all the entries have been received a poll will be created, where each member has one vote (subject to amount of entries). There will be no prize for the winner, this is just for fun

5. All photos must be uploaded at the same time. No 'reserving' slots for future photos. Any reseved slots will be deleted and you may be disqualified.

6. The competition wil run until September 27th to allow busy members time to enter, a poll will then be created for voting. This will last for 7 days

Happy posting! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

FTF reserve the right to amend the rules at any time without notification, dates are subject to change

If your confused, just post a question up in the comments section, it should be straight forward though!!

Silage 2009 - SG Contracts - Hay - 2009

its time for the baler to come out, were using a jd 6930 and a 590 round baler

on the last pass of a field


as the baler moved on to the next field the carting team drew up, we are using the artic because the bale trailer is on another job and the farmer wanted the bales carting asap because some kids set it on fire last year


loadall backed off with the bale fork i built up in the early hours of the morning


picking up a bale with a view of the baler in the distance


put a bale at the front so the loader could sit on the back



this outfit is chasing the combine around as we speak
