Silage, a new gate and Chester breaks my finger...

We have nearly used all the silage at Wallacefield. Now I know the cattle love it but it’s a massive pain, we don’t have a tractor so we pull the bales apart by hand and fill the quad trailer with it, and then take it out to the cattle. We hadn’t intended to have any silage, we normally have small baled hay and some Hayledge, both of these have the advantage of being easy to handle and move about. The wet weather last summer meant that the last cut never got dry enough, hence silage rather than waste. The last bale is now open and the end is in sight.
