Agricultural Contracting Services

At Archer Farming, our latest farm equipment enables us to provide a wide range of agricultural contracting services within a 25 mile radius of Ockbrook. Our agricultural services and equipment include:

Drilling

We have a 3 metre Kuhn 3004 power harrow / combi-liner drill combination unit. Together with a front press on the tractor, this is an excellent unit for working straight on to ploughed land, but can also be used on min – tilled stubble if required. We can drill all cereals including rape, linseed, beans, and grass seed mixtures, and have also drilled maize for a number of dairy farmer customers.

Square Baling

We are currently running a Vicon LB12200 baler which offers a 120 cm x 80 cm bale with any length on offer, up to a maximum of around 10ft. Suitable for baling straw, Haylage, silage and hay, this baler has a tremendous output with 100 acres per day often achieved when baling straw. A rapid way of clearing fields ready for stubble operation.

Round Baling

For the upcoming season we are again running the McHale Fusion 2 baler / wrapper. This machine is a fixed chamber roller baler producing bales of 1.25m (4 feet) diameter. It has a 23 knife chopper unit, although for most purposes not all knives will be necessary. Capable of producing bales over 700KG; they are perfect for stacking and maintain bale shape throughout winter. If required additive can be applied using an on-board dispenser.

An integrated wrapper unit is included in the machine to allow one man to carry out both jobs at the same time. This means that the wrapping is carried out within seconds of the bale being formed and ensures excellent forage quality. If required, baling can be carried out on its own for hay and straw, or where silage is wrapped back at the farm.

Tractor Fleet

Our tractors consist of a John Deere 6830 complete with Chilton T12 loader and a Fendt 820. Both tractors are equipped with front linkage and are capable of all the operations that we offer. The 6830 boosts up to 185hp whilst the Fendt is 200hp and runs with a vario transmission.

The 6830 / Chilton combination is capable of carrying out all types of loader work with a variety of attachments such as a bale squeeze for wrapped round or square bales, a large bale spike for unwrapped round or square bales, a large muck grab, pallet forks or bucket.

Bale Wrapping

We are still able to arrange this as a separate operation for both square and round bales.

Mowing

Kuhn FC313 Mower Conditioner with spreading hood.

Ploughing

Kuhn Multi Master 122 5 furrow reversible plough is capable of reaching high daily outputs.

Discing

Opico Heva 4 metre Disc Roller, This is brilliant for minimum tillage stubble operations.

Sub Soiling

The latest addition to the machinery fleet sees a Cousins 3 Leg V Form with a Razor Ring Roller. This is perfect for working on top of ploughing or straight into stubble for min till operations.

Muck Spreading

Richard Western 12 tonne rear discharge muck spreader is perfect for spreading all types of solid and semi solid muck. We have also spread compost for customers with ease.

Carting

Weather it be Straw, Corn or Muck we are able to offer a carting service to suit

For corn we have an 11t and 10t trailers perfect for hauling straight behind a combine.

For straw we have 2 trailers, a 27’ and a 32’ meaning straw can be shifted with ease from field to farm.

And for muck a 10t trailer able to shift FYM, compost, wood chippings and slurry.

All 3 operations are on offer with just a tractor or with the tractor/loader option.
