The author reflects on farming as a family partnership. He states that he was sceptical about buying a second-hand self-propelled forage harvester after always using trailed machines previously. According to the author, success in the showring was even more of an achievement in 2008 as there was a large entry due to the Simmental World Congress attending the show. He notes that he has been selected for several on-farm inspections.
