Harvesting silage peas with a neighbours 9500. The peas stood over 5 feet tall before they were swathed.
Re: harvest 2006
Gee Russ, there looks to be a fair bit of green stuff in the swathed peas; I bet that was making old Johnny cough & splutter ;-) I have seen green weed going into headers when we have been harvesting poppies & they dont like it very much.

When you say silage peas, what do you mean? Here I have seen guys plant a mixed field pea / spring oat crop for silage but it is mown, raked, baled into rolls & wrapped.
Re: harvest 2006
yeah there was a bit of green stuff going through, actually it looks alot worse than it was. But the peas were so dry they were starting to shell out already. The peas are a silage variety, at this point of the year we already had made all of our pea silage and were getting seed for next year or to sell or to grind up as feed. We also dropped the chaff and round baled to use as bedding.
Re: harvest 2006
Ok, thanks Russ.

Alot of guys here bale their process / vining pea trash & have found it is good for feeding to both cattle & sheep. It is especially good if you have stock on green feed, as a roughage, to slow the green feed from going straight through them.
