  1. I'm glad you can be there for your friend
  2. I went to work for a feedlot owner in 1980. He had had a dairy in the past and I asked him if he missed it? He said, "Yes,but it is a good miss". I don't miss milking but I will miss my cows when they are gone. But I am looking forward to not being tied down. I'm sure you will fill your time with your other interests.
  3. Sad to hear. I'm glad it didn't happen when we had a million dollars worth of equipment in there.
  4. When I had my mill I think I was charging $80.00 an hour. I cut a lot on shares for half.
  5. I'll be there Tuesday morning to begin setup. I hope a few show up. We have been away too long.
  6. I would like at RPRU to show the development of hybrid seed and how it ties in with mechanized harvest. I'd like some items for display with the presentation. Drying rack for ears, hand held sheller, germination tester, small grader, cloth seed sacks, signs and paper. Contact me if you can help contribute. This will be an exhibit within the Nine Decades interactive museum.
  7. Call the Huron Chamber. I was told that they were finding some
  8. Great things shaping up. And I have 3 weeks of thresher show in the meantime.
  9. With steel posts I'd think maybe not as far a wood posts. But that's a lot of juice to dissipate depending on the strike. And you never know what instant it is going to strike again or where. My advice is not to touch a fence if you hear thunder.
  10. What I have done is to drill a couple holes big enough for a punch. You can always plug the holes later if you need to.
  11. I don't know Delta. The SHTF may be already started. And people turn into animals rather quickly once they start down that path. This may make covid look like a sunday school picnic yet.
  12. My grandfather cooled milk with spring water. Dad said when he was a boy it was his job to stir the milk to speed the cooling.
  13. The good news is that people WILL eat. They may go without a lot of consumer goods but food is essential.
  14. Over a mile to the closest neighbors. More to others. Days and days go by and I see nobody but the traffic on the highway which is drastically diminished this last week.
  15. I was by there Sunday and it looked like they had a lot of stock on hand. How did you get permission to take pictures? Cameras were a no go when I toured.
  16. Interesting topic. I believe that the newer vehicles will last a lot longer than people think if they are half taken care of. I have nearly 180000 on my 04 Dodge an expect it to go a long time. I change oil every 3 to 4000 miles and use Phillips TropArtic, the cheapest oil I can buy.
  17. From what I have seen in old advertising photos I don't think they originals had decals. Mine is not drilled in the nose for the Farmall emblem. Trojan bought skid units and converted them. The one pictured has Farmall rear wheels. Trojan rears are heavier special wheels. I really like mine for building roads or leveling sites.
  18. I have visited with him. It's been a long time. He told stories of growing up on the IH farm at Hinsdale. (at least I think that is the fellow)
  19. Corn king is one of the brands built at Plano. It would be awesome if we could get that! But yeah, a 100 would be welcome too. I want lots of equipment. Not just rows of tractors.
  20. Yes. Lots of interesting things coming together. We want to show the diversity of the company world wide as well as the innovative products that were developed at IH. This wil be a once in a lifetime history museum display. 96,000 square feet. Interactive displays where you can see, touch, and learn about our great heritage.
  21. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://industrialscenery.blogspot.com/2016/08/ih-plano-works-chicago-il.html&ved=2ahUKEwipzbG2pL_nAhUHXc0KHWfkAGIQFjAGegQICxAB&usg=AOvVaw0jY2cu775uRCW59mHt3TRQ
  22. Yes. From what I found on the Plano history site, spreaders were built there after IH acquired the property in the 1902 consolidation. But it's confusing because about 1890 Plano mfg. had been moved to West Pullman. Hopefully we can get this cleared up and print some good information in the showbook.
