Re: Balage Dec 2006
Hi Jeff, where are you living in New Zealand? In 2004 I've been 4 months in the area of Blenheim in the north of the south Island. I did also a month of travelling trough whole NZ with my Ford Telstar... haha. But it's a great country!
Cheers,

Joep

Re: Balage Dec 2006
You just have to love NZ for the beautiful backrounds it provides. I took many pictures troughout my highschool year there and most turned out awesome. Of course in 99/2000 I didn't have a digital camera.
But that avatar..... boy oh boy. Are you gonna get in trouble with TasCowboy! :-D No just kidding. Everybody fools around with their neighbours. The Germans just LOVE the Dutch and vice versa. Right guys? ;-)
When I left in 2000 the dairy industry was just starting to grow at an amazing speed. What is it like now? Almost looks like you run a dairy yourself? A stayed on a sheep farm in Southland. Very few dairies around, but I was told that changed.

Take care Martin

Re: Balage Dec 2006
Nice pictures Jeff,

Just a question about the term "baleage"; what is the definition of baleage?

Is it just round bale silage or is it drier silage, almost haylage, wrapped in bales or what?

Just interested in the term, seems to be used alot in NZ but not here in Aus.

Regards,

The Cowboy ;-)

PS; Love the avatar.....NOT :-P.

Shall be thinking of you when the Aussies play England in the tri series cricket finals today, the same ones that NZ missed out on :-)

Re: Balage Dec 2006
Joep, we live in the center of the North Island half way between Rotorua and taupo. How was the Telstar? Did you enjpy your stay out here?

MartinM, We live in a big dairying area, although a beef farmer myself. The dairy industry is taking it a bit hard at the moment, with the milk prices quite on the low side. The outlook doesnt look so good for next year either. However everybody is surviving and and its just a case of wait till it gets better. Southland is full of Dairy farms now as the land is quite a bit cheaper done there. In the summer months I help the local contractor (machine station) out by doing most of the baling, hence we travel to a lot of dairy farms.

Dear Tas, I will admit that you have a really good cricket team and you guys have done very well in the series! It turns the other way in the winter though right! :-P the baleage thing, in NZ we just call them Wraps, which range form fresh cut grass through to hay that would be caught by the rain. Each year we do around 14,000 wraps and about 5000 Hay bales.

Im married to a Dane and they just love the Swedish, so I guess that every country has its arch rival!! Its all good fun!
Hope that awnsers everybodys Q's,

Cheers

Jeff
