Making use of the frost to keep the machinery moving and running clean. The beet harvester is lifting the sugar beet in clean conditions and the cultivator and drill is following up behind making a beautiful job. The boys are collecting the sugar beet as it’s lifted and delivering to the factory. Great job team.
The sugar beet lifting is going well in the winter sunlight. Cultivating dry soil in December and drilling winter wheat behind.
59 children came for a school visit to look at farming and storage of grain. They looked at the Combines, Cat challenger, and Fendt tractors and sat in the seats. Then they went to the grainstore laboratory to see the grain being processed and flour made. Next they then went onto the grain hospital and storage.
Cultivations for autumn and spring crops have gone well. The joker and terrano gx have done a good job and the subsoiler has prepared the spring land with some ploughing for some crops on new farms which are being reset for ctf.
Heavy land is doing 78 tonnes a ha currently, hopefully the second block will be in the 80’s, I’m hoping for great things in the fens. The beet is increasing yield in this good weather, it has the potential to increase by 40% between September and December.
A proud day for me becoming an assistant to the court of the worshipful company of farmers.
