Silage 2008 - Cullies Farm - SPFH - 2008

First cut starting down on Cullies Farm, we have the same contractor back this year, with a few changes to his machine line-up. Fisrtly this year he has changed the BigM for a Fendt 936 and Claas buterfly mower set. The BigM was proving to costly, to have a machine sitting up for 8 months of the year, so the Fendt was bought to replace it. The boss is just dropping in to see how the new outfit performed on it's first mowing outing
