  1. 178 holes, 5/8 diameter and 6 inches deep. 3 rotohammer drills and we are done with the base plate for the building.
  2. If we don’t regulate how much food Dolly gets, she just keeps getting fatter. Right now she looks amazing.
  3. Between pulling the hay and stabbing the gum with stems is what I understand
  4. Be careful with them, or at least the hay saver net. They can cause lots of dental issues in horses. Only way I know to keep horses from wasting hay is feeding limited amounts.
  5. Depends more on the truck than the trailer. I can turn into a trailer with my sleeper. A long hood Kenworth won’t come close. I can turn my 50 foot hopper around on a wide 2 lane road. I would never consider that loaded though.
  6. Here ya go @acem Pretty sure this had the front differential replaced at one point. They ran tracks on it for a couple years and backed it out of the shop with the tracks on the front and tires on the rear, in 4 wheel drive. Used to be a Loral spay truck.
  7. He is talking 7 acres. There are very few people interested in anything that small. I would venture that 100 is about right no matter what area you’re in.
  8. This is Tank. He is an Italian Mastiff. The guy who has him, told me that Tank rides shotgun and his wife has to ride in the back seat. He had just gotten to work and wasn’t ready for pictures yet. Big Teddybear. Weighs 120 pounds and HAS to be within sight of his owner.
  9. Looks absolutely amazing!! And you can grade the road to!!
  10. All of the stock wells up there are under 40 feet.
  11. I don’t think they will ever fill their lots. Just order as needed anymore.
  12. I have always been told once they get started bloating, ship them. That being said, I bought one a year ago that wanted to bloat all the time. We somewhat gave up on her and put her on full feed of cracked corn. She got a terrible case of diarrhea, and we thought she was going to die. Never treated her for anything, and we butchered her late summer. After she got diarrhea, she quit bloating and fed out well.
  13. I am not Lorenzo, but did grow up about half way between him and Sandhiller. Dad’s first well was put in 1965. It’s 60 feet deep and when we were using siphon tubes, it was pumping 1200gpm. When we went to gated pipe, I think they backed it down to 1000gpm, and when my little brother bought the place, and put a pivot on it, they are only pumping 800gpm. Interestingly, Dad put another well in 1/3 of a mile north of the original, again 60 feet deep. It would never produce over 700gpm and on a dry year, about 300gpm was it. We also pumped out of a very small gravel pit. Maybe 100 feet diameter, and we could pump 2500gpm using an old Berkeley pump and a DC Case tractor for the power unit. In 1972, Dad put up a 220 acre pivot on the north east side of the North Loup River. I think that well is 250 feet deep and at its best pumped 1350gpm. With the new pivot technology, Tim, my brother, is pumping 700gpm and raising twice or three times the crops.
  14. Just for the record, you are talking about an actual greaser, not a junk air grease gun. Do you guys grease everything at the shop? For my tiny operation, my battery powered grease gun has improved how well things get greased.
  15. The shop Lisa works with had a sheriff sale on a truck, twice. The first time, they didn’t have all of their paperwork in order. Second time it only brought $3000, and they bought it back. Haven’t seen or heard anything about it in a while now.
  16. You guys who like your air grease guns must have better ones than I have ever been around. I have a DeWalt, only because I already had yellow, but my air gun will never come off the shelf again.
  17. This was designed much like a WW 1 holster for a Luger.
  18. Lisa used to build these. I don’t have this one anchored down correctly. I used to pack all the time when I was horseback. We had a number of different kinds of varmints that needed extinguished. No one knew I was carrying under that vest.
  19. I could handle that. These leaked everywhere. Probably didn’t help that they had been repoed and sat vacant for years before we got them.
  20. Here are 3 I found years ago. It still amazes me what you can see when you train yourself to look for them.
  21. The only time I have ever been around them, they were using them for dry grain. Both had moldy grain against the walls. The corn one, we cheated and grain vacuumed it. The other one had Milo in. I don’t think they have emptied it yet, but I left 6 years ago. I assume they need to be calked fairly regularly? Soured me with using them for grain.
  22. Don’t think I’m heading that way in the near future, but you never know. Be worth a detour!!
  23. Don’t say that! I will never be able to convince him it’s not fit for his consumption!
  24. You better send me some to test!! I sure wouldn’t want you to get sick if there’s something wrong with it!!😜
