Almost finished - 75m
A completed "sausage" of wheat
Long before our harvest started Farmer Phil was wondering how he was going to deliver or store all the grain we expected to harvest. We only have one truck which holds about 27T, but when the header is stripping over 30T of grain every hour, the poor old truck and driver would be run ragged trying to keep up.
We decided to buy a bagging machine. This machine puts the grain into a big plastic sausage-shaped bag so that it can be stored for short periods on farm. Once harvest is finished Farmer Phil will then have the job of carting the grain out of the bags and into the grain receival site nearby.
A "sausage" of wheat is 75m long and holds 250T of grain. We bought 12 bags, and we think we'll use them all this harvest.
