The middle bin and hopper to the right of photo are interlinked to the feeder so I can put straights trough the parlour along with nuts it doesn’t mix 100% accurate but not too far off. The one to the left is a water storage tank for the flood wash

It’s looking like pitting it again this year just thought bales would be handy to keep fresh 15 acres would make a lot more bales than I thought too it’d get very expensive

How much extra grain would be gained in the few days I’m on about? It’ll be fully filled out just won’t be gone too hard

Yes chopping definitely a cheaper option bales just seems like I’d always have fresh feed instead of an open pit from when I stop feeding it in the spring until I start buffering with it during the summer/autumn.

Yes I understand that but would a couple of days make much difference? What % moisture would it be ideally at cutting? Is there anyone with ag bags in Ireland?

If stacked upright would enough space be able to be left?

If it’s cut that bit earlier is stubble still issue?

Are rats more likely to go for bales than pit? Never had issue with rats since we started wholecrop few years ago

Seemingly conditioner can be slowed. Im in two minds of what to do the idea of bales is nice instead of having a pit open when not being used

If cut at rite stage it doesn’t need cracking, we’ve don’t both in past. I’m told conditioners can be slowed down for little grain loss and would be baled and wrapped straight away. Would rats be issue with bales never had issues when in the pit? Will be stored on slab either way

In what way is feed value lost? If mowed straight into big sweats and baled with a fusion?

Thinking of baling our wholecrop this year instead of pitting it. How many bales should I expect per acre how much earlier should it be cut because of no crimping and how much plastic wraps? Am I mad? Spring wheat
