Mwal, how many bales did you get from that field?
It’s two fields, one in each picture. all together it’s was 190 probably 2/3s in the pic with the baler and 1/3 in the one with the loader. I need 192 for a full year if all my pens are full so I’m 2 short haha. But I have a field of oats that has about 100 bales there also when it’s ready then after that I’m selling this roll belt (way to much stopping and starting) and getting an agco high density.

Baling baling baling

Baling fields 1 & 2 in Sussex. This is taking forever

Even the game is tired of the baling.
It won’t continue until I sell the ones I have 🤭

I watched a cool 4k drone video of farming in BC or something, where it looks like the fields stretch over the horizon. I haven't even owned a large tractor for a couple months, so I decided to give this type of farming a try.
I started on Welker farms, which seemed kind of like that area, and the goal is just to do this super large scale farming as realistic as I could - based on the video :) I have no clue how farming is actually done being as I've never done it or even really seen it IRL.
I don't drive the trucks on the field, and buy all my fertilizer and seed from the shop (love how much seed we go through, so much pallet handling). I've found if I do stuff like landscaping, mowing my lawns, tree removal with the telehandler and chainsaw, etc, it's been kind of fun.
I got a seed pallet to unload to leave me only the pallet, which I kept for tree removal. I just stand on the pallet and can reach the upper branches of these larger hardwoods. I've fallen off a few times but it seems I'm surprisingly resilient.
I play on an Xbox so it's a lot of driving the auger wagon around - but judging from the video, that seems to be what it would really be like. Also it's almost essential to own a JCB :)

I actually saw that - but I was saying to myself "what's with the huge white tractors they use". Those things look like they're from the 60's haha. On my farm we can afford nice things :)

Lol Big Buds. I think they actually have their versions of the Big Bud on the Modhub. Those tractors are awesome!

Fall did his entrance in Rade. Currently my early spring seeded oat is being harvested. After that we have to bale and stack the straw, and hopefully we get the time to do all this before the sugarbeets are ready for harvesting. Sugrrbeets are 2 medium sized fields all on top of rade sp that will be al lot of hauling with the trailers.

Other than that my wife keeps the cows feeded abd clean.

The harvest crew is nearly done with the last field of soybeans and stopped to have lunch at the Taco stand. Darn, and I am not allowed to have one. :neutralnew:

My granddaughter came home from college to help with the winter seeding. She handles that big CaseIH 380CVX Magnum with the 12m Horsch seeder better than any of the hired hands.

First season in Holmåkra and I'm having a bit of a fight with the spring weather in Sweden. Who would have guessed that it would have snowed on the first time of mid spring and the ground temp would still be below freezing? :hmm:

While I'm waiting on the conditions to improve so I can get on with some fieldwork, I've been busy doing a lot of forestry clearing the old disused forestry road to speed up the trip to shop and I've been clearing land to get a new field in.
Image

Image
The Griffin with the snowplough is great for moving snow of the roads, but she doesn't like the snow banks so we had to call in the winter service crew to try and help shift some of the snow to make the run to Holmakra Timber a bit easier.
Image
At least the weather has given time to get the LWG Sawmill up and running so we are producing our own timber products now.
Image

Image
If the weather doesn't improve soon I'll have to keep focusing on clearing some more farm land and start to get ready to set up a tree nursery.

For supply, I like to take a semi with a Wilson pacesetter up to the quonset and fill half seed half fert, so 30,000L each. Then with a little jockeying, you can get the pipe off the seed hawk or the hatzenbichler under it and fill that way.

Had all intentions of carrying on with the work on Osina, but chose Marwell yesterday. In the middle of loading 90+ bales without an auto loader and then stacking them back in the home barn. About halfway done. I'm probably going to sell 30+ or so.
Currently Playing on XBoxOne : Marwell Manor Farm, 460 + hours
Osina, 45+ hours
