600 ha grass with 3 Fendt IDEAL 9T

At Adamshøj Gods on the island of Zeeland in Denmark, three Fendt IDEALs have already threshed 600 hectares of grass in one season. This enables the company to produce grass seeds for turf sods, for example. During harvest 2018 they tested the Fendt IDEAL and were so convinced of the quality that they ordered three Fendt IDEAL 9T for the harvest 2019.

Knud Arne Aakjær Frandsen is operations manager at Adamshøj Estate and also drives the Fendt IDEAL 9T himself: "The rotors of the Fendt IDEAL treat the crop particularly gently and the Fendt IDEAL 9T also offers a high level of driving and working comfort thanks to the tracks. That convinced me. This enables us to achieve a very high threshing quality, especially in the production of grass seeds and grain, and to avoid broken grains." In addition, 15,000 bales are pressed annually with the baler Fendt Squadra at Adamshøj Gods, so the high straw quality of the large combine was another purchase criterion.

In total, the farm cultivates various types of grain on almost 2,000 hectares of land, of which 400 hectares is owned land around the estate and almost 1,600 hectares in other parts of Zeeland. In addition there are 600 ha of land on the farm of the son-in-law. In addition to arable farming, the farm also produces organic eggs with 18,000 hens, for which a new barn was built in 2018. The manor house is picturesquely surrounded by a forest near Copenhagen and 16 of the buildings belonging to the manor house have been converted into apartments and are now being rented out to tourists.
