Sugar beet cleaner arrives

We have purchased a CTM 9003XL sugar beet cleaner for our own sugar beet and work for British sugar. 

12 runs left for 2014 harvest

We have only 12 runs left until the combinable crop harvest has been completed. We have built a track 2000 metre long to get to this field. I feel a Bloody Mary coming on. Well done everyone. Thank you very much for your hard work.
