Watch farmer Rich Heady and his team use tractors and other machinery to turn a field of grass into big round bales, and then wrap them for silage.

Silage is fermented grass, that locks up nutrients so farmers can feed their cattle over winter.

About Rich and his farm

Rich Heady is a mixed farmer in Buckinghamshire. He has cattle, sheep, and crops on his farm.

Rich says; “Come and join me for the highs and lows of farming cattle and sheep, along with growing a variety of crops for us and our animals to eat. Laugh with me, laugh at me, I don’t mind, just come and see how great British food is produced and why we do what we do.”
