Hi there – how are you. My wheels haven’t stopped turning this Summer and I have spent so much time in the fields as well as in towns that I just have to share what has been happening. As you probably know farmers are really busy at this time of year cutting grass and gathering it into their farms to feed their animals. There really is nothing to beat the smell of freshly mown grass and my friends pictured here definitely agree. I also love talking to the cows – they are great listeners !
Local farmers have been busy working in their fields mowing, harvesting and hauling lots and lots of silage for their animals to eat over the Winter. Tractors, mowers and rakes have been busy cutting and raking silage. They’re so busy they hardly have time to stop for a cup of tea – tough going !
Then big harvesters produced by companies like CLAAS, Krone, New Holland and John Deere have swept up and down fields picking up the silage and sending it into Kane Silage Trailers being towed alongside. It is exhausting just watching it all.
The loaded trailers have then been towed by Massey Ferguson, New Holland, John Deere, Fendt, Claas, Case, Deutz and other tractors. At silage clamps the silage has been tipped out – heavy work ! I’m sure the cows love to see all the grass arriving and can’t wait to tuck into it.
Then the silage has been lifted, shoved and rolled into silage clamps. I love watching all the silage action. There is so much activity and lots of different machinery.
Arrivals at Muddytrac Farm.
At Muddytrac Farm I have watched as our team of ‘little people’ worked very hard to make brand new shiny toy trailers more like real silage trailers. First of all new trailers arrived here at Muddytrac farm on our transporter. When they were unloaded the Kane Silage Trailers were all cleaned down. Extra paint was applied here and there.
That’s More Like it !
Afterwards, one by one the trailers were driven into the Muddy Tractor Factory where the little people dirtied them.
Then the trailers were left to rest in the big drying shed. The next day some of the silage trailers were filled up with loads of ‘silage’ just like real trailers. Some trailers were left empty except for some silage sprinkled around the corners.
Silage trailers are always a big favourite at this time of year and it has been really enjoyable watching them being produced here at Muddytrac Farm. There’s always something happening at Muddytrac Farm so look in again soon and I will let you know what has been happening.
