VIDEO: ‘We cut around 8,000-acres’

Brian Horner is an agricultural contractor from Co. Down, who cuts approximately 8,000-acres – 7,200-acres of grass and in the region of 800-acres of whole crop.

Horner, who runs two BiG Xs – 1100 and 700s – and a fleet of John Deere tractors, currently has nine full-time staff members.

Grass harvest

The grass harvest with a BiG X 1100 is part of his core business. “The window in Northern Ireland for cutting silage is getting smaller. That is why everybody wondered why we went for a 1100.”

“The window, because of the weather in Northern Ireland, is very unpredictable. That’s why we went, so, you have a small window, you can put a lot of acres in and a small windows of hours, acres per hours.”

He is impressed with its crop flow, fuel efficiency, ease of maintenance and road and field comfort.
