Reduced Soil Compaction | James Goodley

James Goodley - Norfolk

It has taken James Goodley four years to change his farming methods, and he believes by fitting his machines with the latest VF tyres he can protect his investment and use his machinery more responsibly. 

Mr Goodley farms in Norfolk, where he grows wheat, oil seed rape, peas, and forage rye. In addition, 175 acres have been given over to a stewardship scheme and he is growing AB15, a two-year sown legume fallow mixture. 

Having invested in a SAM Horizon 4000 self propelled sprayer, James was conscious of the impact tyre pressures can have on soil compaction.

"There is a huge range of tyres on the market, but for me it had to be VF and I chose Continental to make use of the new tyre pressure monitoring sensors and system"

Continental Tyres kinder to grass | Patrick Brolly

Patrick Brolly - County Derry

Patrick Brolly farms at Foreglen in County Derry. The farm is between 700 and 900 feet above sea level and stretches to 120 hectares of grassland and 60 hectares of hillside.

Patrick has a flock of 320 Cheviot Mule ewes with 100 ewe lambs and a further 80 pedigree Beltex ewes. He also has a small herd of 30 cattle, a mixture of Herefords and Simmentals. 

When he bought a 2007 New Holland TM 155 tractor the tyres were almost worn out, so he was left with the unenviable task of finding suitable replacements.

"I have seen a real improvement in grip, but the bigger benefit is that these tyres don’t dig in and damage the grass"

Vintage Tractor Restoration | Ryder Lestrud

Ryder Lestrud – John Deere 4020 – Vintage Tractor Restoration

Ryder Lestrud – John Deere 4020 – Vintage Tractor Restoration

When you see the freshly painted 1972 John Deere 4020 "High Crop,” it almost looks brand new.

The shiny green exterior and new Continental tyres make it hard to believe the tractor is nearing 50 years old, built on September 29, 1971. 

“What I learned from this restoration was hard work, determination, meeting a deadline, but also speaking” explained Ryder.

‘Safer’ with wider tyres | Aubrey Evans

New Claas 440 Arion with wider Continental Tractor70

Court Gilbert Farm has been in Aubrey’s family for three generations.

The farm extends to approximately 1000 acres of hilly pastureland near Brecon, in the county of Powys. Aubrey and his brother carry out daily farm tasks, and their parents are still involved in the day to day management of the farm.

“I didn’t feel safe on the narrow tyres that are offered with many new tractors. I wanted another Claas but I also wanted wider tyres,” says Mr. Evans.

Favored for road use | Alan Thow

John Deere 6150R with our TractorMaster

John Deere 6150R with our TractorMaster

Alan Thow farms 2,500 acres in partnership with this brother Norman, with their sons heavily involved, too. 

Denside is a mixed farm beside Auchenblae, Laurencekirk with farmland spread over a 20-mile radius that includes 400 beef cows, 1400 breeding ewes, 2000 finishing cattle and 6000 lambs, 600 acres of cereals and 100 acres of turnips and fodder beet are grown for feed. The premium brand tyres specified on the 6150R needed to be replaced so Alan started looking for an alternative. 

“Because of the amount of road work we do I wanted tyres to be quiet and comfortable on the road, but I also expected premium brand tyres to wear well and to get all the tread wear without cracks and punctures.”

Mario and Nathan Arcifa - Owner of Arcifa Brothers vineyard

Mario Arcifa manages the family farm “Arcifa Brothers vineyard”.

The soil conditions there are challenging, this means for Arcifa that they must work on a variety of different soils. "When we used the Continental Tractor85 on our farm, we found that the tyres had a minimal effect on the soil surface.” Mick Carbone, owner of “Agriculture Tyres and Wheels” also particularly appreciates the wide range of products Continental offers him.

"It's great to have Continental back in our market!”

Dairy farming | Tudor Jones

Tudor Jones, Paul Hamer, Richard Hutchins

Richard Hutchins, Sales Manager, Continental Agricultural Tires. Tudor Jones, Fron Farm. Paul Hamer, Salesman, Pontesbury Tractors

His family have held the same tenancy at Fron Farm for 72 years on the hillside above Weston Rhyn near Chirk on the border with Wales.

The farm is positioned 700-1,200 feet above sea level and stretches to 145 acres of mixed hill ground.

Tudor’s previous Case covered 3,000 hours in just under three years. Whilst this is not uncommon, Tudor was surprised that, after just two years and a little under 2,000 hours, his tyres wore out.

“I do quite a bit of road work, pull a tanker and work in quite arduous conditions going uphill along rough tracks, but I didn’t think the tyres would wear out so quickly.”

World Ploughing Championship - Peter Alderslade

The summer sun is burning in the bright blue sky above the fields of Minnesota.

The smell of recently harvested hay and grain still fills the air. The continuous purring of engines breaks the silence. Stubble and grass are being turned into furrows so straight that you might think they had been drawn by a ruler.

“The tyres have a narrow profile, so they fit the furrows well."
