Maybe dump it and conveyor belt it in?

Thanks guys, I actually ended up finding a silo that dispensed lime hiding on the map not too far from my fields. The map is astonishing, the level of detail and complexity just blows my mind, especially after a small and simple map such as Lone Oak. There's so many little details that aren't apparent just from a casual overview of the map, and even with the map zoomed all the way in a lot of the sales points icons kind of hide out beneath/on top of each-other. There's just a lot going on.

Question about Seasons: when playing with Seasons on, does crop rotation necessitate plowing between each harvest? Plowing as opposed to cultivating, I mean.

Since we are on the topic of Hazzard County, does anyone know what the ingredients are to make flour? That is definitely a honeypot on that map. I just started it up today and am loving it

Question about root crops of which I have no experience: if I have a Roper Harvester and the appropriate header, do I still need to take the tops of the plants (sugar beets), or does that cover me as far as equipment goes?

Yup, the Ropa harvester does everything in one shot.

What's the recommended vanilla windrower? I notice that in the shop in that category the Kuhn Merge Max is the most expensive in the entire roster at 110k while the Lely Hibiscus 5050 is nearly 50% less in price while also sporting a much broader reach (14.8 vs the Kuhn's 9.1). I know nothing about grass and logic tells me the Kuhn must offer some better service that I'm not seeing to justify the price difference.

That Kuhn windrower can drop swaths in 3 different ways. That's the main special part of that windrower.
I think the other 9m windrower from Kuhn is the best choice when starting. The smallest windrower is just a pain =P

Thanks Alagos.

New question: on average, how many liters of TMR does a cow consume per day?

I'm not sure myself, however I do know that they consume a fair amount each day, so it is best to feed them TMR as a priority because I am fairly sure that it will go into the other categories once it fills up

Also, I will be starting FS19 soon. Any good mods I should have to start out. I will probably start out on a map like Pacific Northwest or Lone Oak, and I have played FS17, so I understand the game for the most part, just haven't played on PC before

For PC, Follow Me and Courseplay, all depends on how realistic you want to go. I use Added Realism for Vehicles and Manual Attach. Some type of multi fruit storage as well.

@FarmCatJenkins how does manual attach work differently than vanilla attach?

It means you get out of the cab and press a button that will detach it out of cab
