We actually accompished something today...

208 tonnes of grass silage. Mowed, chopped and trucked by two people... Started at 7 a.m. and I made it home by 10 p.m. I suppose it is not that much by real farmer standards but for a Lazy Farmer it is quite an accomplishment.
That would be 25 loads chopped with a sub $1000 chopper found on craigslist.
There were problems but lets not go into that. I could advise that if you have a choice between a Hesston 6600 swather and a 1340 disk mower from mowing grass for silage you should go with the disk mower.
Now I am going to bed...


  1. Be careful. At that rate you might have to change the name of your blog!

  2. Gorges, I doubt it will be a trend... I should be planting corn today or fixing the bearing that is most likely going out on the chopper.

  3. Or getting the stacker out of the barn as my neighbors are all cutting hay. I can hear the mowers going. Which means the guy we stack for will probably be baling his today. Crap... I don't want to run the stacker. I'm turning my phone off...
