  1. Thanks! I am busy, there is always something to do. I buy my pigs as 30-40 lbs. and raise them up to around 280lbs. I just have a couple small dirt pens with maybe 12x20ft sheds. I just fill there 80 bushel self feeders with ground corn and soybean meal mix and I have a 70 gallon watered for them. Most days I just fill there waterer which takes about 5 minutes. When they are small it takes probly 3 weeks for them to empty there feeder, but when they get up to 200 lbs. it’s more like Every 7-8 days. I grind my own feed which takes around 1.5 hours to grind and put out for them. My hogs reall
  2. I would highly suggest working for a farmer too. There is a ton to learn if you’ve never been around it. To say if 250 acres is profitable, it depends on a lot of things. 250 acres in a poor area of Montana that may make 40 bushels of wheat per acre or 250 acres of excellent Iowa ground that can make 240 bushel per acre corn every year are two very different situations. Also depends on if you get $2.80 out of corn or $5.50. One thing that has worked well for me is diversifying. I own 310 acres and row crop 210 of it and about 90 acres are pasture. I have corn, soybeans, rye, cattle, I raise

    My brothers 806 on the arcusin 14 bale bundler. And my 1066 loading the straw bundles. My wife made us stop for a 3 generation photo.
  6. About 5 years ago I found 5 or 6 nice bred hiefers on Craigslist for a reasonable price. They were about an hour away so I called the guy and he said come on over in the morning. So my dad, brother and I showed up at his place and we no more got out of the truck and another guy pulls in with a trailer. We assumed it was the owner but it was another guy to look at them. The owner came out of his house and takes us all out to look at the heifers in his pen. Next thing I know the other guy says “I’ll take them”. I said look guy I was here first. The owner said that I was right and I thought th
  7. They are going to Hoffmanns sale in effingham, KS. I think the end of sept. I'm not sure of the year on the G. It looks like a good paint job on it.
  8. I think we are going back this saterday to haul the rest. I'll get pics of the rest. I doubt the moline is anything special. None of the others he is selling are.
  9. Yup it's a super h. It is very faded but looks really straight.
  10. I will try to get one. It's in its work clothes. I think he bought it new too
  11. I didn't think any were loaded to awful heavy. They all loaded really well, except the 660. Of course the heaviest one would have the brakes or planetary or something locking the rear tires up.
  12. He still has a w4, an f20, an H, and some old minni moline, and one more I can't remember. Here's some pics of some of his tractors he's not selling. His 1456 he bought new. He has 2 6030 john deeres. He also has a 1950T oliver and a G1355 oliver, a green Minni moline. His 186 hydro is very slick
  13. An older gentleman from the next town over contacted my dad to haul around 20 old tractors to an auction about 40 miles away. We hauled 4 loads on saterday. None of the tractors ran to load them, although he said they all ran 15 years ago. Most were stored inside old barns. We loaded them with a cat skid steer and his 1456 with a loader. There is an f12, 660, fergeson, I think a farmall regular, Farmall M, Massey 33, John Deere B, w9, super H, John Deere G, super A ih, cub, farmall H. Here's some pics.
