    I fed concentrates on top of silage for years, but it was precision chopped silage and along a feed passage so except for maybe one day after the passage had been filled the mix was going over silage...

    Re: Digestate

    No, it's a fair question.

    I refer to it as being "organic" in the true sense i.e. being of plant or animal origin and in that respect it is.

    Re: Cover crop?

    Couple of runs with a disc (one if it's loamy!), one run with land leveler, scatter seed, close gate.

    I actually was surprised at how relatively simple a baler is, then again, mechanics is my thing so it was all familiar stuff just on a larger scale.

    To be fair, I wouldn't fancy his job.

    Our land is hooked on chemicals, and our farmers on subsidies.

    Changing from poly to sisal.

    I know that some of the older balers won't run poly twine. But does anyone run sisal twine out of choice in something that can run either, or has changed from poly to sisal for whatever reason?
