Re: Feeding Time
Nice pics! It's intresting to see how much you are using lorries (trucks) in farming, even for transports inside the farm. Here tax regulations effective stops use of lorries if you don't use them very much!

Re: Feeding Time
Isnt it possible to put lorries on an farm license plate? Here in Holland you can do that, but you will have to block some gears so it won't run faster than 50 km/h

Re: Feeding Time
Those TMR's are made just an hour north of here, in Lucknow Ontario. We have also one, a 750 cu.ft. trailed type. For large dairy farms (like the on in the picture) a truck is the way to go since those farms are feeding most of the day anyhow.

Re: Feeding Time
Ziko: Yes, we can make the lorry into a "A-tractor" to avoid tax, but then rules for tractors apply, max speed here is 40 km/h. Then the ordinay tractor is more competitive3, the reason to use a lorry is the speed...

Re: Feeding Time
The beef feedlot here uses trucks to feed (are left hand drive, so I guess they are imported from the USA). They are fitted with Mohrlang mixers.
