  1. My cousin sprayed molasses on his rained out hay, rigged up an acid sprayer on his round baler and cut molasses with water, says the cows are eating it
  2. Buoyancy Operated Aquatic Transport. Never knew it was an acronym until I watched a Phineas and Ferb cartoon with my kids?
  3. Certified ones always read wet compared to actually grinding, weighing wet, drying and weighing again. We had an AND MX50 moisture balance for our malt business. I always compared a sample from the elevator I sold my crops to, they always read 1-3 whole points dryer than the elevators testers! I spoke to a USDA official about it, but it would have been a long involved process to contest their results, and since the malt business was a flop and I lost the farm, I don't care to take the time to follow through with that. A certified scale and an oven are a great way to test the accuracy of any handheld tester you get. Good luck!
  4. This!!!!! Second vote for com, it lists companies that fund far leftist and anti freedom causes so you can stop giving them your hard EARNED dollar. (As we don't live on govt handouts, we earn our money through blood, sweat and tears). They don't deserve my dollar, and I try to avoid supporting them in any way possible
  5. So should those who disrespect our countries flag and anthem on a worldwide stage
  6. Looks like nice soil for sure, any time I've picked a field clean of rocks, you can hardly tell after a winters worth of freezing and thawing and a good spring plowing. Sure looks like a handy way to prep a seedbed, as long as you don't have 80 acres to plant! I'm looking forward to your hay making videos. Thanks ?
  7. Where are all of the rocks in the field that fellow is working up?
  8. Looks like a night of great memories with the family. Congratulations on running so well untested!!
  9. May your pain and grief be overshadowed by the hope that is only found in our Savior.
  10. People are crazy, how dumb and desperate must one be to eat rotten meat!? That's literally for the birds ( vultures).
  11. Around that time, I watched hundreds of very unusual lights in the sky here in Michigan. My whole family, wife and kids, saw them too. Anyone else here see them?! Should i put on my tinfoil hat now?
  12. Gotta channel your inner Davey Crockett ?
  13. Indeed, another contractor I work with lost his otherwise healthy 34 year old wife to a blood clot a week after getting the j&j shot. Screw that, hard pass on the vaccines for this guy and his family.
  14. My condolences on the loss of your dad, but it sounds like you're a family of faith. We know death is defeated, and does not have the final say. I also miss seeing updrafts posts, there's a lot of the older generation on here, with much wisdom to share. I appreciate all of you on here, may the Lord bless and keep you all.
  15. Mmmmm summer shandy, that's a good, refreshing beer. Not a high abv either, so a guy can have a couple and not overdo it. I bought a 15.5 gallon keg of it last year, about $140 if I recall correctly. Too bad someone drained it all after I had it in the kegerator only a couple weeks, I may have had/shared two to three gallons, was gone for a weekend, came home to an empty keg. Man was that disappointing. I am pretty sure it was a nephew of mine and his "friends", but couldn't prove it. I have a trail cam watching the shop now!
  16. Officer Trevor Slot, Michigan State Police. RIP
  17. Concur!! Especially since it'll be on the day I celebrate my grand entrance into the world, I want you to ride in an authentic WWII p51, as long as it won't break the bank. And post pics too, of course!
  18. Thanks for the suggestions fellows, the journey begins tomorrow! The kids are excited tonight, good stuff?
  19. Hey guys, my family is taking a trip soon, driving from Michigan to South Carolina. Planning on seeing the Ark in Kentucky, and stopping by Monticello and Roanoke too. My kids are aged 19 months to nine years. My wife and I enjoy American history and the great American outdoors. Do you all have any suggestions for sights to check out on our trip? Thanks!
  20. Indeed, I always appreciate reading what both MTO and OT write here, I hope they are both doing well and I look forward to their usual banter returning.
  21. I'll be finding some soon, usually prime time for finding them when the may apples are blooming, and they're going to be there quick with the warmer weather.
  22. Thanks, I can only imagine the eardrum bursting noise that it must make when doing it's thing. Looks like it was an enjoyable weekend!
  23. That "1086" puller sure looks like a pulling machine, what's the powerplant and transmission setup in it ?
  24. Death is defeated, He is risen indeed. Amen!
  25. Me too! The world has gone crazy, but it's certainly not the first time, and unless the second coming occurs first, it won't be the last.
