    We had from 800 to 1000 layers when we were kids. Mom delivered eggs weekly to store in town. Had to pick, wash, grade eggs and crate them. Remember when dad bought all new nests, roll always, we were in 7th heaven. Also raised at least a 100 broilers to go into the freezer every summer. Didn't care for them at the time but doesn't seem too bad now. The good old days.
  2. Been wearing Red Wing shoes for quite a few years, #202 I believe. Six inch boot with three grommets at the top. Get them at the amish store for about $150.00. Last me at least a year and half or more. Doesn't take much to break them in and are comfortable on cement. My two cents.
  3. We have a JCB 214II, it's been a reliable machine for our tiling business. Good hydraulics but parts are pricey if from JCB. Local shop carries the british metric ftg. Haven't had any major problems but will probably look at a deere or case when replacing possibly.

    Avoiding stress

    Ended up with Crohn's disease about 20+ years ago. I blame it on stress to this day, kept too much stuff bottled up. Some just handle it better than others. I didnt.
  5. Just went by one of their empty plants in Rochester In. Sad to see but I think Walmart helped by building their own processing plant.

    1482 combine

    Ag Express Electronics, believe that have places in Nebraska, Iowa, and Indiana. Rebuilt my sprayer monitor, good work and not out of line on pricing.

    Sad but true

    Our county passed an ordinance some years back you had to have a recycle bin. Every other week pickup. At first they sent bills out for six months service, $16.50 twice a yr. Lot of people wouldn't pay so they put it on your county taxes. Plastic, glass, newspapers, tin containers even aerosol cans. Chem jugs rinsed and smash. If its remotely recyclable it goes in. Been said if they can't get rid of it all it goes to the landfill.
  8. Took a couple of no longer used pieces to Polks consignment sale lot today. Here's a few pics of some decent red items i took while I was there.
  9. Just got a set from Costco. Free exam which was pretty thorough. Wore a set around the store far a good hour. So far I have been satisfied with the quality and price. Approx $1500. Batteries don't last quite last a week. Well worth the price.
  10. If I know were going to use it at a certain time I use a heavy duty timer programmed to come on a couple hours before and they pop right off like it was summer. Easier on starter & batteries and electric bill. Won't let them plugged in over night, had one short out once. All are in block heaters. Keep good cords on them. My two cents.
  11. If you're going to replace bushings just do them all. If a couple are bad, others aren't far behind. I buy quite a few new parts from Worthington's seem to be of good quality and fair price.
  12. 45 years ago my wife's grandfather asked me what was worse than having too many salesmen knocking on your door. Being pretty naive I told him I didn't have a clue what he meant and asked what. He laughs and said none at all. Older I got the more it made sense. Got a couple neighbors that fit this narative.

    Dog toys

    Have a 10 month old chocolate lab, destroys about everything except this. Believe they call it a jolley ball for horses. Bought him a nice dog pillow for Christmas. Three days later was in the trash.
  14. Bought this a few years ago at a winter farm show. Burns #1or#2 diesel, no fumes and quieter than a torpedo. Only drawback is price but I use it all the time with minimal maintenance.
  15. Maibach tractor parts in Creston Ohio. Old Oliver dealer plus salvage yard. Should have it be able to help.
