Farming the land in the Summer time Vol2




When we set out to make another film on grass and whole crop,we started off wondering in what Country or direction we would go and decided to stay in Ireland,in what turned out to be a great year for weather and we were able to feature some of the new machines that were just out that season.                                                                                                     We visited the Young farm near Hillsborough Co Down where into the field came Brian Horner a local Agri-Contractor from North Co Down .Brian was driving the first Krone 1100 self-propelled harvester to come to Ireland and following him was a team of John Deere tractors,drawing lovely Herron trailers.It took all they had to keep up with Brian and his mighty machine.                                                                                                                                                                                   Further south we visited Athy Co Kilkenny ,were we stopped at the farm of Roger Perry who works with nothing but New Holland and filmed them at work at the Silage with a New Harvester and a new shovel along with many other new implements as well.They're a good team of men and they did a good job.                                                                             At the County Crest farm near to Lusk in Co Dublin,they had just opened their new Beef Unit and were preparing to put in the grass in their new state of the art grass shed.We watched them use all the top tractors in their fleet along with a J F Trail Harvester and the latest tedding and rowing machines.                                                                                                  When the Whole Crop season began ,we moved to a farm near Attical in Co Down in the heart of the Mourne Mountains,where we saw for the first time in all our travels a reversible Fendt 936 tractor belonging to a KIlkeel based Agri-Contractor.We filmed this extraordinary machine going backwards up the steep hilly slopes to lift the Whole Crop and put it in to the Redrock trailers.David,the owner,is keen Fendt collector has seven Fendt tractors at his disposal.         Last of all ,we called with John Dan O Hare's men ,who where near their home in Annaclone putting in the last Whole Crop for the winter as they cut in the dark ,to get finnished.
