    Prayers sent for mom and family from the Palmetto State.
  2. Same as on some JD models that had the stub lines coming off pump- 4520? I ordered them from local JD dealer for 856 I had in shop.
  3. Prayers for your family’s comfort from SC
  4. Was just curious. My BIL does all our sync and breeding. He was a tech for Select Sires for a while, but it was too much with chicken houses- had to be close by for alarm calls. He does some work on his own now. AI also turned our herd around and it’s gotta be cheaper than a bull if you do it yourself. I think he charges $8 per head plus semen plus a trip charge dependent on distance. I don’t deal with the cows unless they’re in the highway in the middle of the night and my BIL is not around.
  5. What’s it run per head to sync and AI in your area? We run the two shot cidr program here.
  6. With nitrate accumulation ensiling (making baleage)- assuming moisture is correct for proper ensiling- will reduce NO3 levels by roughly half. Prussic acid does not follow that trend. As mentioned above, let it stand 10 days prior to harvesting. If tonight is not a killing frost, 10 frost free days are recommended.
  7. X2 on the Duratrac’s. Just put my third set on today- hard to beat.
  8. I’ve done a couple on 1020 headers, it’s tedious but not awful.
  9. Prayers sent for your friends and loved ones from SC
  10. Prayers for your loss and for healing sent from SC
  11. There was an internal metal tube that ran from the trans pump to the front pump on those (50, 55 series) that was prone to failure if I’m not mistaken
  12. He was talking pickup use- basically said the 2.5’s you get at the parts house will crystallize in the spout when they dry. When you go to put the 1/2 gallon or so you didn’t use initially in you introduce DEF crystals into the tank. I run a 2019 6.7- uses very little. I only add DEF when I know I’ll hold an entire jug or two. So far no issues.
  13. Wife’s first cousin has been a powerstroke tech for Ford since the first gen engines. He basically told be the same thing on DEF. fill it up when empty and if you have a piece of jug left throw it away.
  14. Please thank your son for his service for me- prayers sent for you both.
  15. Realizing asking this is probably a horrible idea, what grease do most of y’all use?
  16. Always tough when the little ones go down- prayers sent from SC.
  17. Palmetto State prayers sent your way sir.
  18. We started spraying Bermuda grass hayfields here several weeks ago. Annual event to some extent here too Ace.
