  1. Unusual animal behavior

    Wife's old mare just loves being with the sheep flock. Especially likes the lambs. We worry about her stepping on one in he barn, lambs and ewes walk right under her and she doesn't seem to mind a bit.
  2. South African Farmers

    Watched a real good documentary on the plight of a white farming family in Zimbabwe as they tried to fight the government for the right to retain their land through the International courts. It is called Mugabe and The White African.
  3. Most Regretted Farm Purchase

    I've regretted a lot of purchases, but the NI Uni-Harvester W/818 combine attachment makes all others pale in comparison. The 767 chopper unit wasn't much better. No capacity in corn and it could barely poop haylage beyond the spout. Best thing that ever happened was the day a neighbor was using it to chop earlage and it burned in the field! 25 years later and I'm still bitter about that thing. Oh, and I also spell junk G E H L.
  4. L170 nh skid steer

    I have a service manual on pdf for an LS170, but have no idea how to get it to you. Glad to help out if I could.
  5. Anyone need an International silage wagon

    The one in the cl add is a 110. Made by Kasten. The 335 gear should be a 12 ton 8 bolt wheel, we had two just like it back in the day.
  6. Vintage Ads

    Stumbled across this in a 1928 Progressive Farmer.
  7. DeWALT 18v Drill Chuck Stripped

    That's how I got the bit out of mine, vice and channel locks. The chuck is no good anyway. You can find replacements on the internet. IIRC I got a Jacobs and they are pretty much universal. I also used the opportunity to upgrade from a 3/8 to 1/2 inch chuck.
  8. DeWALT 18v Drill Chuck Stripped

    I've had that happen too. You can get a replacement chuck for under 20 bucks. Pretty easy to change, just a left hand thread screw holding the chuck in.
  9. Battery rebuilders

    Dewalt sells an adapter that will run an 18 volt tool on 20v lithium ion batteries.
  10. Fencing trip to kansas

    yup, nice of a guy as you'll ever meet.
  11. Fencing trip to kansas

    I took interest in this thread because my BIL is also in KS building fence. I'll be darned if he didn't show up in your pictures. Keep up the good work and God bless you all!
  12. Best and Worst Rock Band Singers?

    There is a song that stars off "Do you have the time to listen to me whine?". I don't know what comes after that because I've already hit another preset button!
  13. Flat landers I think have it made

    I expect one of the biggest challenges for those guys farming flat, black 160 acre tracts that have good drainage would be affording the rent. 2016 Iowa state rental rate survey shows the top 1/3 quality land rented for an average of $270 per acre. overall state average of $230. Here in Augusta county, VA the average rent is about $70/acre.
  14. Advice on farm lease

    $51/ton delivered, about a 120 mile haul coming from Richmond, VA. I think it would have been about $40/ton if I would have taken a full trailer load.
  15. Advice on farm lease

    Well, I met with the farm owners, presented what I thought was a fair proposal, and after some discussion they accepted my conditions. I would like to express my appreciation for this forum and the people here. Been lurking for years and have really enjoyed the discussions amongst people with whom I can relate. The only other forum I follow with regularity is sports related, and although we are all fans of the same team, I don't feel the kinship with them that I do with the folks here. I think I can count on one finger the number of people here that I perceive I wouldn't like. But I even enjoyed watching him make an a$$ of himself.
