Re: first cut
Nice pics. Who makes the end dump trailer? Are you guys chopping right behind the swather? What is the feed for dairy or beef?

Nice photos Hugh :-)

How do you find lucerne (alfalfa) silage compared to say grass & clover silage?

I have read that lucerne (alfalfa) doesnt make silage of as high a quality as pasture silage, due to the sugar levels being alot lower (which are present in the grasses).

Hey Hugh

How many trucks are needed to keep up with that monster? How does the draper head on the swather do cutting the alfalfa? I know they are heavy duty, but does the knife every break or plug up really bad with the wet material?

Re: first cut
HI Warren, we also run a draper head(a honeybee) for alfalfa We find the double knife is better than a single knife. Also you can get hayguards, which are pieces of mild steel that come up from the guards and they cover the front of the drapers so that debris doesnt' get between the belts and the rollers. We went through 2 or more sets of drapers in a season and since we put these guards on we haven't change them yet.
