Are you a seasoned farm-hand currently seeking work? Are you a team-player? Are you available to start immediately?


We are looking for experienced tractor, bailer and telehandler drivers to join our team now. You would be involved in a variety of daily duties during harvest. The hours are long and the work is hard, but the rewards are great. Accommodation is also available if required.


To register your interest in joining us, please send an email to today. Tell us a bit about yourself and include details of your experience to date, and any relevant qualifications. 


We will reply to all emails, and successful applicants will be invited for interview in due course. 


Harvest is here and once again straw is in big demand. We are looking to purchase your barley, wheat, oat and rape straw in the swath. We are able to offer you a prompt service behind the combine, using the latest baling equipment coupled with Parkland Bale Accumulators for a controlled traffic environment.


We buy any size straw bale from the field at harvest and actively seek available straw stocks all year round. 


If you are interested in our baling services, or you have straw to sell, please contact Paddy Reed on 07768 353910 or email today.


ProStraw Systems are delighted to be your local stockists of the Balemaster and Grainmaster Protimeters from Martin Lishman. 


The Protimeter Balemaster is a two-piece hand-held unit and 600mm moisture probe that really stands up to heavy farm and industrial use. Pressure can be used to force the probe into tough bales, without risk to the instrument. The meter measures the moisture within the heart of the bale and determines if your straw is in a safe condition to store. Optional temperature probe is also available.


The Protimeter Grainmaster measures the moisture content in your grain. The unit is supplied in a hard carry case with operational and protective accessories. An optional 1.5m probe is available to measure moisture and temperature of grain in storage. There is also a downloadable Protimeter App available for iOS and Android.

ProStraw Systems was founded in 2016 by Suffolk farmers Paddy and Will Reed.  They have worked in the agricultural sector for many years, and in more recent times have been utilising their vast knowledge and experience in developing systems and bespoke solutions tailored towards the straw industry.

Having continually experienced the frustrations and expense of water-wasted straw bales, the father and son team set about designing a unique mechanised sheeting system that would cover straw-stacks safely, and protect their valuable stock from the worst of the wet weather.  Their method of application was launched to great acclaim at the ‘Cereals’ industry event in 2016, and so ProStraw Systems was born.

As well as Paddy and Will’s long-time core businesses of Agricultural Contractors and Straw Merchants, they are also the exclusive importers of Parkland Bale Accumulators throughout the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. This new technology has been designed with controlled traffic farming in mind, and could revolutionise your harvest-time regime saving you both time and money.


VIP visitors to ProStraw

There were surprise visitors to the ProStraw Systems stand at this year's Suffolk Show.


The Suffolk Agriculture Association President and show management team were welcomed by Paddy at the Trinity Park showground. 

Protimeter Measures Up

The Protimeter Balemaster and Grainmaster moisture meters are now available from ProStraw Systems.


Cutting edge technology to monitor moisture levels in your bales and grain, and ensure they remain at optimum condition whilst in storage.

Speculate To Accumulate!

Harvest time can demand some long days and many many hours of hard work during the summer. However,  by using a Parkland bale accumulator behind your baler, you can maintain controlled traffic on your fields and could clear bales in less than half the time it traditionally takes.
