The potato planter can be attached to the back of the tractor and sows the seed potatoes into the ground at the correct spacing and then covers them over with the soil.

Feeding Animals – Silage Feeder

Silage Feeder

Through the Winter the silage feeder is permanently attached to one of our tractors so that the cattle can be fed silage twice daily whilst they are in the fold yard.

Preparing The Land – Rolling The Soil

The Rollers

The rollers are attached to the back of the tractor and are used to firm the top of the soil after seeds have been planted.

Here are just a few of the many jobs assigned to the tractor.  Jump aboard the tractor again soon to find out what other jobs the tractor can turn it’s engine to!
