Benifits of selling straw
There is an array of benifits available by selling your straw to us. Primarily, the extra revenue per acre on the crop you have grown soon adds up, on an average yielding first wheat crop, the straw alone can add up to £30-£50 per acre with no extra input from the farmer. Tally that with the noteable fuel saving from the combine when the straw chopper is not engaged and the reduction in the amount of slug pellets used on the next crop due to the lack of residual straw on top, and this figure can safely rise to £50-£80 in profit and savings per acre.
Here at Cole Agriculture we have a growing array of modern machinery at our disposal, including:
· 9 state of the art MF2290 4×4 baler and tractor combinations
· 3 Bale chasers with LGP tyres and high speed tractors
· 6 40ft tractor and trailer combinations
· 4 9.5m JCB Telehandlers
· 2 Volvo FH drawbar and trailer lorries
This list of machinery enables us to stay on top of the workload at harvest time and arrive promptly on farm when there is straw lying in the swath.
Our bale chasers will follow the balers movements and collect bales from the field as quickly as possible.
