    land o lakes patrons?

    I’ve heard that some of these plants that put quota on their farmers are allowing transfer of the quota. Maybe selling ones quota could make up for the crappy cow prices for those getting out!

    New joke

    While riding my motorcycle, I swerved to avoid hitting a deer, lost control and landed in a ditch and severely banged my head. Dazed and confused I crawled out of the ditch to the edge of the road when a shiny new convertible pulled up with a very beautiful women who asked, "Are you okay?" As I looked up, I noticed she was wearing a low cut blouse with cleavage to die for. "I'm okay I think," I replied as I pulled myself up to the side of the car to get a closer look. She said, “get in and I will take you to my house so I can clean and bandage that nasty scrape on your head.” "That's nice of you," I answered, but I don't think my wife will like me doing that! "Oh, come now, I am a nurse" she insisted. "I need to see if you have any more scrapes and then treat them properly. "Well, she was really pretty and very persuasive and being sort of shaken and weak, I agreed, but repeated, "I'm sure my wife won't like this." We arrived at her place which was just few miles away and after a couple of cold beers and the bandaging, I thanked her and said, "I feel a lot better, but I know my wife is going to be really upset, so I'd better go now." "Don't be silly!" she said with a smile, while unbuttoning her blouse exposing the most beautiful set of ****s I’ve ever seen. "Stay for a while. She won't know anything and by the way, where is she?" I replied, . . . . . . . . . "Still in the ditch with my motorcycle, I guess."

    My rant for today....

    You might be missing out by not asking miles. Back in '04 I was looking at 99-00 super duties with 7.3 and a 6-speed. I screwed up entering years in my search but let it go because I had a dollar cap anyhow. Pulled up an '02 in my range. I figured it had to have a quarter million miles so I looked past it. The next day I gave in to curiosity and called. Only 117k. That's a lot of miles for a truck that was still two months from its 3rd birthday, but no more than the older trucks I was looking at! I drove that truck til just shy of 200k and only sold it to get a crew cab.

    Foam filling tires

    I’m on my second set of 23-8.5-12 foamed tires. It doubles the cost, but I was having enough flat tires that it works out very similar in lifetime cost, and this way I have no down time. I’m just guessing that you are running 10-16.5. That lower price is a bit suspicious. Talk to another customer of theirs. They will ride rough. I would never foam fill a used tire, nor would I do anything but a good rim.

    february milk price?

    Keep selling where you are!!! I think we get deductions over 300 scc. We sure don't get a bonus for no rbst or low pi count. Otherwise our numbers are comparable. But we got a .20 deduction on ppd (they could have taken.80). 2.349 for fat, 1.6265 for protein, .055 other solids, and .249 for a scc of 151. Trucking is a flat 225 for every other day

    Phone cases

    Anyone use a life proof case? I just got one because it is water proof. But I’m wondering if it has enough screen protection? I’ve been told to use tempered glass, but others say that will affect screen sensitivity. I’m already noticing a little of that. What do you guys do?

    february milk price?

    China had been a major buyer of cheese, among other things. They were buying well more than they needed and stock piling. Of course we Americans were all too happy to produce all they wanted. Then China quit buying, but our production didn't quit. The big dairies have gotten good at raising calves, so instead of having to constantly buy more replacements they are constantly having a surplus. So they over crowd, because more production without extra costs equals profit. They get so crowded that they decide to add another building- not to expand, just to fit existing cows. Then they repeat the cycle, while never "expanding", just always getting bigger....

    Phone cases

    Has anyone with a life proof case still cracked the screen? I understand if it gets run over its not likely to survive but what about if I have it in my pocket and push against something?

    IH wheel weights?

    Not IH, but not likely home made. There were a number of foundries at the time making wheel weights. Judging by the variety of mounting holes these were likely intended to fit multiple brands of tractors. I'd be interested to know what they weigh. I'd guess 300 per circle.

    2574 turn signals available?

    That's what I'm looking for. But I'm planning to replace the pair with new as well. I'm willing to spend a little more on items that are about safety. And keeping the cops away! Lol. i will try Napa when I get the chance. I've been looking online and coming up blank.

    2574 turn signals available?

    Are turn signals available new for an IH 2574 truck? I've got one that is rusted off and needs replaced. It looks like they are the same throughout the S line of medium duty trucks. Thanks

    Miller Pro chopper box

    Has anyone ever mounted a Miller pro on a truck? I'm looking at a 5200 combo box, and it doesn't have full length stringers. Are they weaker because of this? Does the running gear make up the strength? It would be going on a truck with a double frame. Thanks!

    Miller Pro chopper box

    The goal is to unload front or rear. Lots of bags get filled around here and only one guy has a table dump bagger.

    986 FWA swap to 1586

    Transfer case is geared WAY different. I think it was calculated once that you would need 20.8-42 rears with maybe an 11.2-24 to make it work.

    3688 4wd turning radius

    If the 1066 had an Elwood axle then yes, they have the same turning radius. If it had a Coleman then they are worlds apart! Dad's Elwood will turn around with a 20' field cultivator with two end passes. It would probably do a figure 8 in the radius of a Coleman!!

    Hydro 86 wide front on 560?

    Measure how far down from the frame the front mounts are. I can't remember if it was before or after the 560 series that they changed the height. You may need to make spacers for the front mount, or for the rear cradle. You will for sure need to drill new holes for the rear cradle.

    Rumor has it

    I'm hearing of people trying to start or add cows! One Amish (or maybe Mennonite) and another couple farms a kid is coming in. But I also heard one guy got turned down by the bank for adding cows. I just got February 's estimate check for $14 per hundred. That's not enough!

    Calls on Cell Phone

    Scammers consider the fines for breaking the do not call list to be just a cost of doing business. Besides, how many of them stay on the line long enough for you to get their info to turn them in? And I suspect they are all just shell companies doing the calling, therefore if they get busted just shut it down and start a different named company to start again with.

    656 weight bracket holes water tank?

    My cousin ran a drum of acid on his 1466 for years baling hay and never had trouble. You should be just fine.
