Heat gun at the bulls!  :laugh: :laugh:

You're a crafty fellow, Graham. You are loaded with tips and ideas on how to do things, I'd have never have thought of that. Mark did a nice job refurbishing that 3050 for Kestler Farm.

Oh, where does the name Kestler come from?

Some detail in the sheds there Graham, rally liking the feed barriers, galv panel gate with bolt, gutters & downpipes, not to mention the straw.

Smart paintwork on the cattle too.

The 3050 looks at home there, I gave it a full valet before it left the yard  :laugh:  I think I can see another tractor that I supplied to you a few years ago as well  ;)
