  2. Haygrazer is a forage sorghum. In my area we refer to it as Sudan grass.
  3. See black stripe on rear of cab and black stripe on door does not match the stripe on hood. Cab very likely will be off an 86 series.
  4. What cab do you have on your 706? I have a Year A Round. I will be interested in your progress!
  5. Very nice and available for sale. Craigslist - Omaha, Nebraska. 1972 IH 1468 V8 Diesel
  6. Tanker, very sorry to hear of your loss, prayers to you and yours as you recover from this loss. Storms our way yesterday and thunder and lightning this morning but only sprinkles thus far.

    Nice 1486

    Paint job, from vantage point of pictures only, appears to be well done. Also a dead giveaway to the very recent paint job is the paint on drawbar, both PTO shafts, three point arms and balls and the hydraulic blocks. Also, appears to be new AC compressor and fuel line along with fresh fuel filters, no paint on these parts and the ether can has half red paint. Appears to be a well cared for tractor which would look very comfortable in my implement building(s).
  8. My 1971 Chevelle SS convertible was my first car purchase, from a girlfriend whose parents were going through a divorce. Car had white interior with white convertible top. What a PIA for a teenager to keep clean. Bought the car against my Dad's better judgment, with the money I had saved from alfalfa bale sales. Dad was very generous with his split of alfalfa we put up in the barn, all to be sold during the winter or fed to our own stock. We had 120 acres of alfalfa under irrigation. All alfalfa was put up in barn, for sale during winter months or for feed for our own stock. The 1972 was a high performance upgrade (dealer installed) to the 454 and was my first new car purchase, also against Dad's better judgment. Both my SS's were console automatic. I remember drag racing on the Interstate and the 454 would burn rubber shifting from first to second with the automatic. Pure power. Lots of drag racing back in the day and my only loss, if it actually was one, was to a 1968 Firebird. After the casual race on the interstate was over, while drinking a few beers, the owner of the Firebird asked what my upgrades were? I replied straight stock. He was shocked and began to inform me of all his upgrades and I had been the only person to hang with him. My 1971 was a beautiful PIA to keep clean and was great for the football homecoming parade with the prospective queen riding on the top of the back seat with the top down, but terrible for a kid to keep clean. My 72 had a black interior and was an absolute beast. I still remember taking a disc grinder to the inner fender well so I could put G60-15 rear tires on the 1972. The 1971 had the stock wheels but I put Crager Super Sports on the 1972. The polished blue paint on the 72 with the chromed Cragers glimmering in the sunlight, still gives me shimmers. I loved stomping the Judges, and the Mopar's were not even a competition. At seventeen (17) years of age, I was high risk insurance and well known to the local Sheriff's department. At that point, most of my alfalfa money went to purchase of insurance.
  9. I was the proud owner of a 1971 yellow convertible Chevelle SS with the 454 and cowl induction hood as well as a 1972 blue Chevelle SS with 454. Both vehicles were in outstanding condition and parked in a barn out at the farm. A tenant renting the old farm house thought it would be nice to burn trash and a spark caught the grass on fire and the grass fire spread to the barn, which was a T-shaped quonset. The grass fire caught somewhere around ten (10) thousand bales of alfalfa I had stored in the barn for winter feed on fire and the fire consumed my two (2) Chevelle's as well as a 1972 MG Midget.
  10. Since Dr. Pol is in Michigan, his facilities most likely suit him fine. Generally, when my vet visits, she utilizes my livestock holding pens and chutes. I do not trailer sick animals and travel to her facility, I have no issue with paying for the ranch visit. When Dr. Pol goes down under, perhaps you can provide the facilities for him?
  11. Charlie was also very generous with his time and participated in several benefits for Starkey, Inc. in Wichita, Kansas. Starkey is the oldest and largest community based non profit organization in Sedgwick County, Kansas serving individuals with disabilities. Charlie assisted in raising over $700,000 through benefit golf tournaments and concerts through a twenty (20) year time period from 1984 to 2004. I had the privilege of personal interaction with Charlie and his band on numerous occasions during his appearances in Kansas and he was truly a very large man in both stature, personality and generosity.
  12. I feed a rolled milo based ration at my feedlots with ensilage. No corn. Milo has slightly less energy content than corn and my ration is based accordingly. Numerous studies have confirmed there is no noticeable difference in dressing percentage, carcass quality or marbling with use of milo as a substitute for corn.
  13. I dare say no one needs to go over there, the Chinese are quite capable of stealing all the technology or anything else needed.
  14. Plowing a furrow in the field and uhhum, other room! Congrats Mule, wonderful present and I wish both you and Mom and Theodore Gene the best!
  15. The twisted shaft will cause severe vibration and may cause damage to both the tractor PTO as well as the implement gear box. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/search/pto
