  1. https://www.footlevelers.com/

    I’ve been using these for 4-5 years, and just got 2 new pairs of insoles 2 months ago.  The last 2 pair made it the 4-5 years I’ve had them! I put my work boots/shoes on a boot dryer every night to help them stay dry, and that prolongs the life of them.  
    I’ve had f’ed up feet my whole life, and after some back issues my chiropractor got me into these foot levelers.  I definitely think they help me! 

  2. Good luck with your new endeavors!! There is life after cattle, but I will say, I definitely miss the smell of silage, and hauling the lagoon out!! I definitely miss the manure, commercial fertilizer does not replace what manure can grow!!

  3. Welcome back Robby!! Sorry to hear about the rough go the past few months! Hopefully there’s clear sailing ahead for you!!

    Kanabec County fsa is open but all wearing masks. Isanti is open but prefers you call to make an appointment. 

    Couple more washout/tile projects next 2 years and I'll hopefully never deal with them again.

    Was at the FSA office on Wednesday, 3 guys in there reporting acres, 3 women helping, no masks on anyone.

    I wish there was a class around here that was even close to stock.      No chance to take a field tractor to a pull. 😞

    That’s everywhere!!

    Truck driver friend said that another driver for the company experienced the incident with the deer seen in picture. Deer got loose and ran away.

    I had one try do that, but his life was ended rather quickly!!

    An animal that is just as expensive is a coon in the radiator...and you dont have to drive down the highway to have to deal with one, either. I'd hate to think of the $$$ involved for all the repairs we've had to make on various pieces of farm equipment(combines, sprayers, tractors, etc.) over the years for damaged radiators, a/c condensors, air-to-air intercoolers, hydraulic coolers, etc. due to someone starting up a machine with a coon in the fan area. Makes the most disgusting of messes with all the "coon debris" in the cooler area. 

    Got that luxury 2 years ago on the 8010! Not cheap!!

    I hit a $6500 turkey awhile back, close enough?


    😳😳   Wow that’s a big dent!!

    Sad, or maybe the good part is he didn’t take out your radiator and/or a/c and charge air cooler. That’s another 15,000. 
    Is there a possible loaner hood? I know Pete has them. 

    I think those 3 things should be ok? It doesn’t show it very well in the pictures, but the bottom right corner of the grill is pushed in a bit.  Everything seemed fine, but I’ll test the charge cooler once I’m back from the body shops inspection.

    Dang Blaine.   Take a well deserved rest last week and now this happened!   Ouch

    Right! What a nice way to pick up after a great week in the black hills!!

    Herd bumper will pay for itself. Hit 2 pronghorn antelope at 70 mph. Not a scratch . Knock the SOBs 200 ft.

    Like I stated above, been wanting to get one! Now if I had it, I’d be money ahead! 

  9. Deer as far as I’m concerned are a 4 legged nuisance! And this morning I came across a $10,000 deer! I guess they aren’t very rare?! Anyone else ever see one? 

    As of the conversation with the body shop, it’s a $10,000 deer, and tomorrow when he sees the truck in person, it might become a higher dollar amount deer?! Hood alone is $4000, and hopefully see it by August! 
    Worst part is, I’ve really been thinking about an Ali Arc, or Herd bumper recently! Would have paid off this morning!! 🤦🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️

    You have any sheet metal from that 1456 left? I need hood and side covers for a 1026

    All the sheet metal is spoken for. 

  11. Sometime in 1970 would be close, all the 56’s I have, are IH stamped, the 1456 I just parted out are WP, and that was 12938 serial number

    I have the punishment for those who don't merge figured out... put up barrier about a mile before the single lane zone so anyone who didn't merge gets trapped in the closed lane, put a yield sign on the end... open lane traffic does not stop. If you weren't smart enough to merge when the signs told you to, you can sit in the penalty box until there's a pause in sign abating traffic. 

    That penalty lane would fill up rather quickly in this state!!!!!!!!

    they need to put speed limiters on all vehicles, that would level the playing field since no would have an advantage

    I’ve been saying this for years!! Trucks don’t need to slow down, cars do!! Yes some trucks  could come off of 80 mph, but they don’t need to be castrated to 60! But the cars definitely need to be limited to 70, 75 at best!

    Minnesota drivers have to be the most impatient people there are.

    As a Minnesotan, and haul grain and fertilizer in the state, I agree!! Your just lucky you are coming and going, not stuck here!!! The 4 wheelers here are in the mindset of, me, me, me, more me now!!! 
    I love the vehicle pulling out in front of you, just to take a left turn, with on coming traffic, now I’m fully stopped waiting for them! Or the vehicle riding my mud flaps, like he’s on fire to get somewhere, only to pass as I’m doing 5-10 over the speed limit, and then slow down to 5 under the speed limit, cause they just can’t sight see following a truck! 
    Yes MN drivers are terrible!!!!
