    Spirit lifter 2+2 Guy?

    HaHa cute video and cute kid. Couldn't have been me. I was never that cute. Didn't have a cowboy hat or boots. My guitar would have been a pitchfork. I did sing to the cows sometimes but Dad said it hurt milk production. I would have been in clod hoppers, a tee shirt and a Dekalb seed corn hat. Couldn't carry a tune in a bucket. Still can't. 😄

    Lake Erie Can sue you ,its claimed

    I'm about 50 miles west of Toledo and all of our farmland drains into the Maumee River which runs directly through Toledo and into Lake Erie. I suspected things were going to get crazy after the big algae bloom on the lake that shut down Toledo's water plant three years ago. Right now it seems like every governmental agency and university is jumping on the band wagon. It appears as though they are all still in a fact finding mode and are formulating a plan of action. I suspect that we will see a substantial impact on the way we farm in the Maumee Watershed within the next few years. Personally, I made the switch from conventional to no-till because of this. I have installed a control stand in one of my tile outlets and planted a filter strip along one ditch bank. I began using cover crops and have added legumes in my crop rotation. These were voluntary changes that have been recommended by NRCS and some have been cost shared through our county FSA office. I realize that my small operation is not really going to make much difference in how much phosphate enters the Western Basin of Lake Erie however we are in an urbanized area and the locals do notice a lot more about how we farm than one might first realize. Personally I think there will be some regulations placed upon us and I'm just trying to be ready for that. Been to a few meetings put on by OSU and NRCS. I don't necessarily agree with or understand everything they say but have found it interesting and enlightening.

    VAN WERT PLOW DAY VIDEOS

    Thanks for all the kind comments on the SMTAD. It's just a fun old tractor to plow with. I would like to extend a big IH Thank YOU to Ohio Farmer for all the time and effort that he, his wife, his son and his farming partner put into this event. As you can see from the videos and the comments, Mark brings a great deal of happiness into the lives of many folks by doing this. And this is just the IH side of things. I'm sure that all the other tractor folks out there feel the same way. We also owe 1legonutt a big IH Thank YOU for putting the videos together so we can relive the memories that we made. Rob, your skills with the drone, the camera and the editing are second to none. I'm very proud to be able to call both of you my friends.

    It was really great to meet you and your wife, Wes. Pretty sure I saw the two of you on one of the videos. Hope you can bring your 806 next year.

    Differences in 2+2s?

    I really did not know that. I dug out my copy of the IH Super 70 sales brochure and sure enough, not once in all 23 pages did they ever refer to them as a 2+2. Looks like they went from being a 2+2 to being a 4-Wheel Drive Tractor.......and all these years I been calling them a 2+2. Okay, how about 2+2 style tractor?
