Farming the Land in Autumntime 2 (DVD 229)
In Australia we met up with a team of workers from Miralwyn cotton. They were getting ready to cut 10,000 hectares between Walgett and Brewarrina with some of the latest machinery, including six big Claas combines, three chaser bins and the big mother bins that sit along the headlands to store the wheat until the first of twenty-two lorrys arrive to take it away.
Back in Ireland we met up with Michael Hoey and his family and some of the workers from their farm at Country Crest. They had two big New Holland combines on tracks as well as an old combine from Armstrong Machinery, the local New Holland dealer in North Dublin
Another team of workers were baling a heavy field of straw at a farm at Ballyboughal in north Co Dublin. Having loaded the big bales on to the trailer they then took them back to the Country Crest cattle farm, where they will be used for bedding. At Myles O’Reilly’s farm at Drumcar in Co Louth a team were cutting a 27 acre field of winter barley. Using two Massey Ferguson combines and a collection of MF tractors we see them at work along an old New Holland combine which lent a hand as well.
