Trouble is Alice I just don't seem to manage posting a picture I have video of it being set (seeds) sprayed with herbicide Various states of growth and harvesting.When it was harvested it was sort of roughly ground and forced into a big plastic sausage say 2 meter diameter and 2 of them 50 metres long It was sold as stock feed.I did say to the Farms Manager "Are you going to make your own Southern Comfort Dave" Not going to tell you his reply on here.I have the whole thing on video I can take one frame and make a picture but I cannot seem to get the picture on here. ??? ;D :farmer:
