  1. Unusual Phobias or fears

    Rats, cleaning out a grain leg, many years ago, had one climb up my left arm to my elbow then proceed to jump to my right arm. Passed within inches of my nose! Before I realized what happened his brother did the same thing. I came climbing out of that pit screaming like a little girl! My boss at the time was at the opening when I came flying out. I know my hand was in his face shoving him out of my way! Gives me the Heebie jeebies every time I tell that story. and fat people in speedos!
  2. Downloading a video from iPad?

    How do you this? I assume it is not the same as a photo
  3. Do a little ground work

    For those of you that like to see her work. It's not much but enjoy! not sure how to upload a video. Only a 22 second clip, but it is not in the right format. I will try to fix it later

  5. Forum rules

    Amish special!
  6. I feel lazy at times

    Got the same problem, seems like there is less time than ever. Fortunately my boss has been very understanding. As long as I give him some sort of heads up, he lets me take off to get planting, harvesting, or whatever is going at the time. Although, that didn't pan out tonite. Would have liked to be off at four, didn't get home till eight. So lazy nite works for me!
  7. Who Still has Silos Around the Yard.

    The sealed silo is a Cropstore. Sorry for the mistake.
  8. Fall Harvest 2017 Thread

    Running around 11%-12%. Yielding in the mid 50's, which is pleasantly surprising. Got neighbors that were saying they're around the mid 40's. Also got beans that were replanted that still at 15%, will need to wait a few days for them.

    You can see, I have robbed pipe of the blue for the other two!
  10. Who Still has Silos Around the Yard.

    The sealed silo is a harvestor. Almost all of them around here are no longer used or were converted to a regular top unload. Too many problems with the bottom unloader. Our has not been used for ten years (unloader was bad an the track was shot). Not sure what brand the staves are anymore, but they are common around here. Guess the salesmen never made to your area!
  11. Who Still has Silos Around the Yard.

    Finished filling the shorter silo tonite. While I was up there topping it off, thought I would count the silos I could see from that side. Counted 25, that does not include the two In the lower left hand corner of this pic. Now on the other side, I know I should be able to count at least that many. By the way, 90% of them are still in use.
  12. 7288 smokestack

    Thinking about replacing our stack on the 7288 with a nice shiny new one. The chrome one on there is all tarnished and I don't know if it can be buffed out. Where could I look to find one that won't tarnish and is still affordable?
  13. 7288 smokestack

    Yes, double walled. Otherwise they tarnish to quick. I will see what I can do for some video, it might be awhile yet.
  14. Nice low houred CIH MX270

    Is this for sale? PM me details if so. Could possibly be interested.
  15. 7288 smokestack

    New Weston, just up the road from Eldora Speedway
  16. 7288 smokestack

    Before, and finally after. Took a while, but got my new stack!
  17. Who Still has Silos Around the Yard.

    We use a 16x70 stave silo for corn silage, we filled the day after Labor Day. We also use a 20x60 stave silo for high moisture ear corn, we are going to start to fill tomorrow. Being just me and dad, these work great for us. Downside is dad can't climb any more(not that I expect him to) and I ain't getting any younger! Thought about switching to bags, but everywhere I see them, there is a pile of plastic, or ruts knee deep when it gets wet out. I don't run enough cattle each year to justify putting down a proper pad for bags, as long as the silos hold together, they will work fine for me.
  18. What is a FARMER?

    Very true
  19. Red 4WD Tractors, Book

    Mine showed up two days ago. Haven't had a chance to open the box and take a look yet!
  20. Please Explain The Controversy Over Dicamba

    This is where it causes problems. There are going to be some that try to use the old formulation dicamba on the extendamax because they think they are saving some money, or "sticking it to the corporations". I was at some meetings last winter where all the reps were very clear that the old dicamba is off label for the extendimax soybeans. Those that want try to save a few bucks and go off label usually end up screwing it up for the rest of us.
  21. Spraying beans

    Soybeans are sprayed, hopefully Mother Nature will cooperate and let them grow. We have had enough moisture recently that they haven't had a chance to get out of that yellowish, water logged, whatever you want to call it stage.
  22. Gator UTV

    I bet if you look up what that unit is going for new, he is probably not to far off on his asking price. You might be able to meet him in the middle(around that 4000). Most golf carts with that amount hours are probably gonna run you about 3500. It does have that green paint on it. That always seems to add to the price!
  23. 7288 smokestack

    We usually only put 70-80 hrs a year on her. Just enough to keep it from " rotting" away.
  24. 7288 smokestack

    I had a double walled chrome stack made for our 7120 by a local from north of Van Wert years ago. That was probably 12 yrs ago and that looks perfect yet. I don't think he does it anymore which why I am trying to find something else. I am having trouble pulling up thormure's website. Is there a different website to Check them out.
