  1. Pulling this setup at 4.7-4.8, and according to the monitor, dropping the exact amount I want. Also did a visual check ( lots of digging) and shows good spacing.
  2. Well she moved to a different tractor now, fortunately I don't need to use the 5140 soon.
  3. We have one female cat on our farm, 1st time mother, and she picks quite a spot for her litter! Down in the bowels of our 290. Only found them after I start the tractor, cause momma come flying out. 2 out 4 alive, moved them to the barn and hope momma keeps them there.
  4. Triple your heart rate when I feed at 530 am before work and the lighting is not that great in the barn!!
  5. Nothing like relaxing in the sun. Some look a little too relaxed, scares me every time I come out to feed!
  6. I like the planter, it was setup for ten inches until last year. This planter was one of the demo units at the Agco plant in Coldwater Ohio when they were developing it. The idea was to have one machine to plant your wheat, soybeans, and corn. The idea never really took off at that time. We switched it to 15 inch rows(basically got rid of the middle row). Always liked the idea of ten inch rows,but with our soils, we would struggle getting good stands. This was because the way this planter would precisely plant each bean 3 inches apart. The beans would struggle to get thru any crusting that may occur. By going to 15s, our beans placement in the furrows are closer, which seem to let the seed help each other out of ground. And it is a lot easier to work on now!
  7. Not sure why it is upside down
  8. That was listed as a parts machine.
  9. like the color, and the interior looks sharp. now i am jealous. guess i will just imagine my 2008 town and country is newer!
  10. I usually go by live weight and they cover the butcher costs
  11. Hank decided to go for a swim in the lagoon and then rolled in the dry dirt! I find it funny, but my wife did not. She thinks he has to be part house dog. Not anymore!
  12. cleaning out the bin today, glad to see the prices come up to help cover the increased expenses(short term thinking). Long term thinking makes me wonder though. They say what goes up, must come down! Just hope everyone has themselves positioned correctly when that time comes.
