Flexibility In Forage
Tim West runs an agricultural contracting business which includes the cutting of 8000 acres of grass for silage. His fleet of forage machinery includes two forage wagons which give him flexibility in silage-making operations and enable better quality silage to be made at less cost.
Tim explains: "It started with just me and a round baler. Then bale wrappers came out and I bought one of them. So I needed someone to come and work with me and
before I knew it, I'd employed someone. And the rest is history."
The business has grown and Mr West now employs a team of 8 full-time workers. Customers are predominantly dairy farmers and so the core services are the usual contracting jobs: silaging, slurry spreading, cultivations, fencing etc......
