For a dairy farmer it can be daunting to reseed the grass fields - but not for Andrew Atkinson who can call on his classic fleet of Ford and John Deere tractors. The result is something that has never been seen on DVD before. These programmes follow Andrew at his Lancashire dairy farm using his fleet of classic machines during the course of four years.
This 3-DVD collection offer includes Parts 1, 2 and 3 - that's 6 hours of classic tractor action.
Part 1 features a Ford 8630 tractor in conjunction with other classic machines being put through their paces with silage harvesting, muck injecting and more. Part 2 looks at hedge cutting, topping and fertilizer spreading, again all being completed using classic machines. The final programme includes harrowing and slitting the grassland, slurry spreading and topping the silage. A classic New Holland 525 forage harvester is featured alongside the Ford 7810, making a fine sight and one reminiscent of the late 1980s.
