  1. It’s on the way if you want it to be! Stop on by
  2. Thanks bitty. I only farm about 250 acres, and I’m on shale ground so the rain isn’t a huge issue. Extremely pleased with my crops this year
  3. Beautiful haymaking weather the last 3 days here. Safe travels to all the folks driving in! hopefully the weather stays nice for the show
  4. That’s the ac condenser on the side of the bin. They ran two electric fans on the top of the box. I’ve been using the gleaners for years. Not a bad machine for their age
  5. Oh ok. So I guess you don’t have to worry about it until the last cutting then. Does it winter kill easy or can it take a frost?
  6. Isn’t there something about some acid or nitrates or something that becomes an issue?
  7. Good buyers are hard to come by. I usually just haul everything to the auction unless someone wants 5-10 bales. Load up 250, go to the auction, pay 5% commission, and you and the buyer both know you got a fair price. Most important I have a check in my hand 10 minutes later from the auction company that I know won’t bounce. You get burned 2-3 times on a load of hay and that 5% seems like a better deal every minute
  8. Winchester to Winchester or Ex to Ex. You really can’t cross those two
  9. So I wanna know how Far East can it be had?
  10. You have clearly never had to choke down 92 degree hamms pounders at a summer college party. Yuck 🤢
  11. Hahaha mines probably a bit tighter but I’d need to compare to be sure
  12. Wow I’d think you could be spendy and gift wrap a whole case for a fellow RPF member lol
  13. Haha yeah I watched the whole series in a few weeks. Absolutely loved it. Makes you wanna go out and buy a cowboy hat and carry a model 94 Winchester around
  14. Ahh joining sheriff Longmire I see , being from the keystone state I stick with keystone light so I really can’t help ya
  15. Yeah small squares are 200-350/ton in Lancaster County. Big squares stay at the 150-280 range. Round bales......lol they’re a joke. Like anything quality is extremely variable and makes or breaks it in the cash hay market. If you can’t be timely and make quality forage don’t even bother
  16. A classic here was fish line on a dollar bill and yank it away right as they were reaching for it. One time my buddy used a 20, guy saw what was happening stepped on the bill, whipped out his knife cut the line and walked away. My buddy just sat their holding an short length of line with that lost puppy look on his face
  17. So recently I had to attend an orientation meeting for my summer internship in Bloomington, IL. And was absolutely blown away by how dark, deep, and rock free the soil was. Noticing me staring in awe at some dirt and corn stalks a local informed me the area between Bloomington and champagne has the most fertile soil in the world. The thing is that’s not the first time I’ve been told that, I have a neighbor who was to California and claims the topsoils 50 feet deep, heard stories about the Mississippi delta being amazing, know the national corn record was set in soil on the east coast,
  18. Well the picture I posted was from my aunt with the text “ how does he get his head out” needless to say the answer involved a dewalt cordless grinder🤦‍♂️ In my defense I tried everything else first
  19. There’s no trees or anything there for reference so it’s tough to tell. I agree that phones usually capture how steep something is in person
  20. Haha believe me after two hours of fighting trying to work him back through i wasn’t sure
  21. Steers.......ended up grinding the thing apart
