  1. Loaded 3 guys up with seed, fixed ECM wires on truck, made a couple hydraulic hoses, fixed 3 tires this morning then cleaned out a bin, moved auger to another bin, drove 75 miles to pick up some extra pipe for my grain vac

  2. We have 5 trucks on the road all the time. No change here but we haul for two elevators and a bunch of farmer customers (same stuff every year). I also started a custom grain vac service last year and that’s going pretty well. We are never looking for work it finds us

  3. We pull 19 on 30” spacing as deep as it will go with the 380 or 340 usually 6-7 mph. Always pulled 17 since grandpa got 7140 when they came out new. Before that he had a 28 ft 496 with shanks on the back with 5488 mfd

    Maybe I'm a softie, but I would likely tear up having to kill animals only to have them wasted.......on top loss of lost income. 

    I just can’t stand the thought of all of these animals going to waste and I have a hard time killing animals for no reason

    Oh man you’re farming wetlands! That’s a capital crime! ?

    stupid nrcs... 

    We do not participate in the farm program anymore. 4 years ago we had a 6 inch rain right after planting and they checked our compliance on the highly eroadable ground then. Needless to say it didn’t go well and even though we fixed all the terraces and waterways immediately they wanted to fine us and take 40 more acres out of production for grass strips and waterways!!!!
