Most farmers employ contractors to carry out the major harvesting and cultivation work on their farms and they are probably wise to go that route as the scale of their farming operations would not justify investing in the equipment to do their own work.

However, there is still a significant cohort of farmers who do their own silage harvesting, slurry spreading and cultivation works such as reseeding.
