    First combine movement???

    Saw the first evidence of a combine working in Essex today ... could this be one of the first, or has anyone else been fortunate enough to give it a go??

    I'm told there's some Barley been cut green for crimping/ensiling not far from me, does that count ?
    I suppose not really as it isn't ripe.
