As an arable farmer, there are always things to do on the farm. Fields need to be ploughed, harrowed, seeded, harvested, sprayed and fertilized – not necessarily in that order, so we need our tractors to be in good working order all year round. These days tractors, like many other pieces of machinery, are computer operated and are very sophisticated. We always have a stock of specialist oils, fluids and lubricants as well as general consumables like rubber pipes so that we can do a patch up job if needed. The boys are pretty good about fixing things and seem to be able to do quite a good job of it too.
