Silage time

Silaging again !
Good yields of grass thanks to the recent rain. Our contractors make light work of cutting, chopping and hauling the grass to the silage clamp thanks to their powerful tractors. Each one is over 200 horse power , and the forage harvester is 580 horse power. So altogether the team have the equivalent of 1400 horses under their command.
Years ago all the work in this village  would have been done by a dozen horses. Which is why all grass had to be conserved as hay, and the work went on all summer.
