Early

 

Mr McClymont’s father who has been a contractor for 30 years in the area says it is the earliest he has ever seen the combines out.

 

Mr McClymont adds: “We had a wet winter and it has been very dry since March. This stuff is going to be used to feed beef cattle and the straw will be baled for winter bedding.”
