    Beef hanging weight

    Thanks guys. Kinda what i figured. Red Flyer, bit confused on where you got $10.00 a pound? Maybe i did my math wrong. Just figured 25 pound per quarter times 4 quarters would be 100 pounds worth of water loss. 100 pounds times about 2 dollars per pound is where i got the $200.00 loss from. Anyhow, appreciate the information

    Beef hanging weight

    When do you weigh a beef by hanging weight. The day it is killed or the day it is cut up? I would guess a quarter of beef that hangs for two weeks would lose 20-25 pounds of water per quarter. As a result, would cost the farmer $200 dollars per head. Anyone have any info on this? I am totally guessing on my numbers. Thanks for any info.

    The Great Depression

    Ask grandpa one time about the depression. Only thing he ever said to me about it was "we were so poor, i never knew there was a depression." However, they did raise and process all there own food. One of the greatest skills he has handed down to the next 2 generations after him. More of a family tradition today than a necessity, but its fun to get everyone together. We just did a few pigs this past weekend. Still do the lard and smoke the meat. Eat pretty much everything. However, i can honestly say i have never been hungry enough to save the blood or testicles. And i agree, those men and women were tough. I feel like i work my tail off butchering a hog........They did it without electricity. Dad said they carried one quarter of beef on the kitchen table each night and cut it up. I can not imagine doing that. Do what you have to do i guess.

    Was a CASE 1190 really a David Brown?

    Uncle has an 880 and a 990. I always kinda liked them. Had a wide range of gears compared to what i was use to with other older tractors. the one thing i didn't like was getting on and off of the tractors. Just thought it was really tight down around the peddles.

    cows eating treated corn seed

    uncle lost 2 cows and 2 calves last two days. Only thing i can find is a bag of treated corn seed that the cows go into. Would this be enough to kill the cows? two of them were still alive when i got there and had a lot of slobber around the month. Not foam but looked like mucus. Thanks for any info.

    Mto and anyone that works on cars/trucks

    Ok thanks to all. Casey, yes it is a mega cab. I will look it over and look for obvious stuff but more than likely it will go to a garage. That way i can torture those mechanics that are gettin to old to work on this stuff. (LOL yes that was a dig on MTO). Thanks guys.

    1066 3 point arms

    I have a disc mower that i would like to use behind a 1066 or 1086. Problems is the arms swing back and forth causing the mower to move. When the mower is directly behind the tractor, i am only able to mow with 3/5 ths of the mower. When i am on a bit of a hill leaning to the left, i can only mow about a foot at a time. I would like to push it to the right a little but not sure how to hold it in place. My new holland has pins that i can lock the 3 point in any position. Thanks you in advanced for any replies.

    gmc 2002 heater fan

    Just needed some advice on my gmc 2002 blower motor. It works in all positions except hi (5th speed position). Is this a blower motor resistor that needs replaced? Everywhere i have looked shows the exact opposite. Fan does not work on positions 1, 2, 3 or 4. but does work in 5. Mine does not work in 5. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks

    ground/chopped hay in feed

    Bobby, that was my thought as well. Without a tmr i don't see any other way to do it. I am kinda under the assumption, he is using a self feeder for the grain and unrolls a bale everyday. Doing it with buckets and a feed bunk would save on the salt. I kinda figured if i give a cow a choice between corn and hay, they are going to go to the corn every time. I really dont know much, but i will be interested to hear of a solution to his problem Good luck.
