  1. Kind of funny isn't it. The government doesn't give Walmart a subsidy for running all the other stores out of business.
  2. You should know the answer to your own question. Why can't we get decent money for our crops? When ford or gm is up to their necks in new cars they stop making them, they don't make twice as many to sell twice as cheap, My grampa explained to me why the nfo would never work fifty years ago. He told me they would go down the line and tell the farmer to send 10% of his sows to market the price of fat pigs would go up accordingly you would have the same money with less expense. Then they got to the last farmer down the road he told them that he was going to keep twice as many sows and be rich next year. The same thing holds true for everyone of you that jump on the seed companies bandwagon and plant their triple stack corn that gets a little more yield to make more bushels to drive the price down more and spend twice as much for seed. Farmers are their own worst enemies.

    Wind farms

    There is a huge fight in Seneca county ohio right now against them but most of the land they wanted signed a lease 8 or 9 years ago and a lot of people want out of their leases but no luck. The wind mills the wind people are going to put up are over 600 ft tall. I never hears of any that tall, has anyone else? Our one son owns a farm in the middle and his neighbor behind him and he wouldn't sign and the last guy from the wind company to try to get him to sign really bad mouthed him for hurting his neighbors and tried to strong arm him into signing, he told the guy not to come back. The leases have been sold several times. The first company to lease the area was john deere, but they soon sold out of the windmill business.

    Auction Results

    I got ours on that big sale in Michigan late this summer the guy had over200 tractors. I just picked the right time to play on the computer and bid. It runs like a raped ape. We took the ice cream box cab off and put fenders on it and will paint it next summer hopefully.

    W6 axle bearings

    Germans invented the ball bearing machinery. That is why they are metric. Every bearing in the rear end of your farmall is metric.
