2. The pictures can show any part of the fertiliser spreading  process

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 2005 collection considering some contractors and many farmers still do use old machines

We contract over 2500 acres of Exmoor and surounding areas. We have 4 fertiliser spinners, 2 Amazone's a Bogballe and a Kuhn Axera. Here we see the Kuhn Axera woking with the Fendt 926 (Always spread fertiliser every year, yeah the tractor is a bit big for spreading fertiliser but it's a traditon  :)) And the year old Claas Ares & McHale forks.

First up

  • 6 Bags Of Yara Extra Grass 27.5.5

R.B.contracting do around a 750 acres ,this changes changes year too year ,we normally have a jd 6920 with starfire as it shows the correct width but as it was on other work we put the fendt 818 on  :) loading we used the new jcb 531-70 and we were putting down yara 27,5,5  :)

as the fendt was being loaded the new jd 7530 doing its first job of picking up the manure spreader and taking it back to base after the driver of the mccormick that was on it left it in one of the other fields   ;) he took the mcorrmick off to take home to use on his wood chipper  :)

the jd came a bit late though ,as if it had come a couple of days earler it would have gone on the fert spreader as it also has starfire like the 6920  :)

thanks for looking  :)

Spreading 2008- Wings Farm/ MD Contractors

Wings Farm is mixed arable and beef farm the arable land is about 650acres. On the contracting side we cover about 1500 acres. The main tractor used would be a fastrac 3220 with floats or standard wheels depending on conditions, but that is out of service this year due to alterations, so the Fendt 818 took its roll. The spreader is an Amazone ZG-B 8200, new this year, the old spreader was a Kuhn, now tucked up in the shed in case of breakdowns.

The crew leaving the yard.
