  1. life in our corner

    Unfortunately I don't think it will take a turn for better very soon. A feed guy who we know has a son who is in Wyoming and sells nutrition also. He says that there is places milking thousands and with sexed semen they raise all the heifers. If they see the price rising they add heifers, otherwise they beef them. I hope that I am wrong though
  2. Tractor to Start Farming With

    That's because we are in PA. It's amazing how much the price drops when you drive 12-20 hours west
  3. Tractor to Start Farming With

    That was how we ran our 86 series and even the 3588 on the mixer. I prefer open station but want shade ( canopy )
  4. steel price

    Doubt that went up yet. Sent 13,800 lbs today..... I will see what it's done when we get paid
  5. Tractor to Start Farming With

    My choice would be a 1066, second choice would be a 1066. My cab tractor would choice be a 1086-1586
  6. Place I am speaking about was Histands in Doylestown PA. I think it is a cousin who we deal with Histands in Rome Pa. One in Doylestown used to be Gehl, Kubota, and I think that they did stuff with others. I was too young to remember much.
  7. Any Canadian dairy farmers on here??

    I have no problem with the lost leader marketing. The thing that infuriates me is in PA there's a minimum that milk can sell for a gallon. So the consumer pays for it and the middle man gets ALL the extra money in times of low farm milk price.
  8. Back in the late 70s early 80s Dad talked about when they would buy equipment they would talk to the local dealer to get two silage wagons with the agreement in may we pay for half of it then pay for the other half in June and then pay for the first half of the other Wagon in the fall etc. This was pre arranged when they made the deal and the dealer was fine with it. All handshake dealing with them. Times have changed. I agree with the fact that too many people are stiffing others and this is making these dealings a thing of the past
  9. Happy birthday, Bitty,Kelly, Tjoker

    Thanks. I got to celebrate going to the chapter 17 meeting yesterday then shed hunting with the boys. Found an old set. Happy birthday to the others, I believe that we share a birthday with the anniversary of the start of the Irak war
  10. Got A New Sponsor

    I have hearing loss from running farm equipment at a young age before it was common sense to wear protection. I wish I could reverse it.....
  11. Here is a video that slams both IH and JD

    On our 8050 PS the torque limiter was out every year and a half like clockwork ( both before and after repower) . The engine on the 7020 self ventilated, 7060 was rebuilt three times by 2100 hours first two under warranty. We sold the engine from the 8050 with about 5000 hours as a running take out when we put in an Everett Hunley repower kit (7130 engine @210 HP) started at the touch of the key and used 3/4 the fuel doing more work
  12. Here is a video that slams both IH and JD

    Ac needed a nicer cab and steps because you had to get in and out so often to change the either can so it would start. We had 7020 ,7060, 8050, 6080. Bought 70xx bought used and the other two new. They were a cheaper tractor every way EXCEPT for the upkeep. I would choose the 86 in that comparison and we have had all three of the types shown there (4630, 186x2, 1586x2, and the previous mentioned AC ones. Ours were all powershift, ran a 7045 at dads cousin's that was power director
  13. Phone cases

    I currently need to replace my MotoX phone. I will probably get a MotoX gen 2 and add a case. My last phone was a Galaxy s6 active in a case and I drove over it with a 465XT skidloader (9,500 lb) and the screen quit working even though it didn't shatter
