The Big John Deere Volume 8
Related Product > The Big John Deere Volume 8
In northern Germany we see big John
Deere’s ploughing, cultivating and
sowing the crop. In Scotland we also
see some ploughing and most of it is
good soft ground that is cultivated
with a one pass operation. Later we
see Eric H Gibson’s son Scott sowing
some cereal.

In Co Down we call to the farm of John
Dan O’Hare, where we see the first
tractors have started to come out of
the yard with slurry tankers and are
heading to work in the fields. Back
at the yard the next team to leave is
3 John Deere’s with ploughs and they
are also heading off to help a farmer
out, after they made a call to John
Dan’s office that morning, while yet
another team are heading off to
prepare the ground and plant maize.

Over in Scotland we call at Benzies up
in a large field in Crudie, where they
are preparing the ground to plant
potatoes and they have a very large
fleet of tractors to do this.

We also call to Country Crest farm in
Co. Dublin, where they are getting
ready to sow onions. The grass is
ready to cut over in Scotland again so
we call with Philip Simmers and his
men, who are getting ready to put
about 600 tonnes of fresh grass into
the silage pit. Not far away we see
another team of John Deere tractors at
work in the grass with Pottinger Toro
silage wagons.

Going back to see how Benzies potatoes
have grown, there are some tractors in
the field sprucing them up a bit and
giving them fresh soil. Meanwhile in
Dublin, some of the onions have now
ripened and we see them being topped,
dug and picked, then taken to the
factory, where they are packaged,
before they are distributed to
different parts of the country. We
also see the latest Grimme Variation
220 self-propelled harvester in

Outside Belfast, we meet up with Gary
Adams and his team of John Deere’s at
Mash Direct’s farm, where they are
harvesting the crop of barley and
taking it back to the yard before they
go for their dinner. Potatoe
harvesting has already started in
Scotland and when we arrive in one of
Benzie’s fields, we see a John Deere
and a new Grimme triple topper taking
the tops off the potatoes, which will
be dug shortly. Further down the road
we also see a new John Deere about to
start harvesting a crop.

Later on in the season we see Sinclair
Contractors with their self propelled
harvester with a wide maize header in
action and then when they are finished
they take it away to another job on
the low loader.

They say it is a long way to Tipperary
but that is where we go on our final
part of the journey to meet up with
Eamon Gaynor to see him harvest some
fodder beat for cattle consumption.
