edzyx 993146 1 Older farming pictures. From Latvia. either
Re: Older farming pictures. From Latvia.
And this a small book that I have, called "AIV forage making", it dates back to May 1996, but all the pictures must be from 1995. The book describes the usage of different AIV preservatives (conservants?) in silage and haylage making, which are made in Finland. Most pictures are Finnish, but some are also Latvian, because this is a Latvian version. The cover photo- MTZ 805 + JF FC 800 chopper + tandem trailer with extra high sidewalls.

"AIV forage making", May 1996. A Latvian picture. Mowing fresh grass- Fortschritt E-281C, MTZ 80 + discharge trailer (forgot it's name, but it works like this: you fill it this way or somehow else, then drive into cow shed, turn on the PTO and it will discharge the grass from it's right side, and as you move forward, you can feed the cows without having to use a fork:).)

"AIV forage making", May 1996. A Latvian picture. Fortschritt E-281C (with arch-type tires), Kamaz. I'm not 100% sure if it's really in Latvia, because truck's number plate doesn't look like Latvian, rather Russian.

The exact same combine 21 year later. 24th July 2010. Last used in 2005, just somewhere, for smaller fields, not wide used since 2002. Was kept in barn from 2005 until 2009. Disassembled and taken to scrap yard in October 2010. Just posted this photo for a comparison. I found that it's the same as in the previous picture by the serial number on grain tank- 895634.


Very interesting.

Have you got a picture about the nameplate of this Niva combine ?

It's made by Rostselmash ?

Re: Older farming pictures. From Latvia.
Thanks for your answer! The reason I asked was that in 1993 I was in Estonia togheter with a friend that exported a lot of used farm equipment to the Baltic states. He had a collegue in Tartu, Estonia who was onbord the ferry Estonia when it sinked but he manage to be rescued, his father wasn't.

They bought my old Juko 4 m combi seeder and if I remember right they sold it to Latvia in year 2000. For many years we got something paid for older machinery when we traded it in against newer because of export to the eastern Europe. Today you buy more and more newer machinery so we have to let the old ones go to the scrapyard.

Thanks for keeping up the good work!

Mmm, my favourites are John Deere tractors and Claas combines as for western equipment, and for Russian or eastern equipment I'd say- MTZ 82 UK (with the big cab), Jenisei 1200 N combine and Fortschritt K 453 & 454 balers (not Russian, but they came from eastern Germany or Democratic Republic of Germany) (lots of great childhood memories are connected with those machines:) ). But for posting you can post what you have, I'm not against, it all makes thread more interesting.:)
