haha me and you both. I absolutely love getting back from the grain store and having a 20 minute wait till the 600 has sent off all the other trailers and I am needed once again.

Leading Corn <3

Silage Leading .. Boooo.

Im compleetly the opposite of that i absolutley loath combining, hate it so much love the bailing though, its far too slow for me. Now silage leading thats a comlpletely new ball game,

1 forager
4 tractor/trailers
1 buckrake
7 mph up the side of the forager, just keep the trailer under the spout and then its pumping adrenaline doing like 18mph up and down rough tracks with 14tonne of silage behind trying to make it to the pit and back to the forager in time to kepp it moving. Best agme while foraging is to not give the harvster enough time to stop. the best one is doing the opening headland on maize when the front links on the jd6800 are 3 inches away from the back of a 100,000 pound forager, and its slipping like hell. And if you hit her thats it for the day cause when the links go through a jd7500 ahrvester it hit the fan. Sometimes you can recover from it but sometimes not. When youre doing quick trailer swaps and you ahev to get p the side of another trailer to pull in quickly now that precison driving. But still one of the best jobs whilst silaging/harvesting maize is being on the pit buckraking. Such an easy job. Just do the sides and the middle practicly take care of itself.

Excellent paragraph makes it sound appealing! I haven't done silage yet so I couldn't comment, hopefully next year I will!

to be honest, silage never has appealed to me. We have only grown corn/maize for grain. I love it. You get to see the end result. but i havnt every tried silage soo therefore i cant say too much.....
