The fun thing about silage is its non stop. i have done it with sad equipment and a pull type and it was still fun. you always are tryin to keep up. going fast as you dare go anywhere you are. kinda hard on equipment. if the harvester has to stop, somethings wrong. kinda fun actually. but on the other hand, i like to shell corn also, mainly because corn yeilds so much that you have to have a grain cart, unloading on the go, keepin the trucks and tractors goin, but theres still not as much going on as silage. understand all that??

Sialge or maize harvest over here is always drive as fast as you can. On the roads but also on the fields. The harvester is to expensive to stop on the field if the transport is still on the road. Somethimes, when we have to transport over about 5-10 km's, we put 3-4 transportcombinations on the road.

But...... it is for the farmer more expensive if the oxigin isn't all pressed out of the silage at the farm (bad silage in winter to feet the cows). So the driver on the silo decides the speed of the whole harvesting combination.

Some other nice maize-pics from trekkerweb.nl in the Netherlands:

me too. more fun. i dont like silage because it is alot of stress on EVERYONE. with normal harvest. its get in the cab. turn the radio up, and go. its usually nice and cool outside. got the grain cart running, unload on the go. got the trucks and tractors going. just a nice, productive, efficient operation.
