Wet years like that are horrible Lennart. We had one here back in 1986 that I'll never forget because it lasted all summer and right through until freeze up. We were stuck all the time getting the summer harvest off and all the wheat was sprouted with little green tails on it..... cattle feed only for that junk. The fall harvest of corn and soybeans was impossible so we had to wait until the ground froze to get into the fields. Even then it meant working during the night because it would get all slimey on top during the day when the sun shone on the ground. I won't wish a year like that on anyone!

There was some nice days last fall - this was one when we hadn't but only a few km's from home there was a lot of activity like on the big milk farm I showed pictures from earlier.

Combine struggling around some obstacles in the big field. In Sweden it's very hard to get permission to remove old ponds and stone pillars in fields. There is very strong protection of biodiversity, some times this is good but some times we must be able to adopt our fields to newer modern machinery!

To get the straw to dry faster they spread it out with this huge Claas Volto 13,2 m tedder towed by a Valmet 8550 (i haved showed pictures of this setup tedding grass earlier in this tread).

Re: 2011 - views and work
Tedding straw isn't an ordinary action - but a wet harvest season you have to do a lot to get good straw!

Yes it is, with total weight of 35.000 kg the maximum axle weight will not go over 10.000 kg. It can be registred up to 60 km/h.

A local farm taking a rest in the potato harvest. Grimme SE 75-55 towed by a Fendt 716 and a Metsjö MetaQ trailer towed by a MF 6490.

Re: 2011 - views and work
From the other side. Potato harvest in our region was though due to the rainy wheather and for many farmers it was to wet so the potatoes got rotten, some growers got up to 50% destroyed.

This New Holland 8040 is definatelly stuck - the farmer uses his Huddig backhoe to help it out.

Re: 2011 - views and work
Due to all the rain last summer and autuum you may think that cattle and sheep grazing would suffer but it's often opposite - the grass is growing all the time and rainy wheather is better than hot sunny summer.

A common sight in the 70's but not now - a Dronningborg D1250 harvesting barley between the rains. Note the characteristic weed cleaning device that older Dronningborg had, the small seeds from weeds is collected in the sacks and can be removed and burned. Good for weeds but not for combining capacity.
