We haven't gotten to that yet.  And we're a year behind on disking them.  Had to get an extension last year. 

What is CRP ground?  Must be a US thing!?  Do tell!

CRP stands for Conservation Reserve Program.  (Also sometimes called "set -aside".)  It is a program offered here in the US by the Department of Agriculture.  In a very short description, the government pays you rent to not farm "environmentally sensitive" ground.  So, flood areas, high erosion (hilly) areas, ect, ect.  It's a decent program, but you sign up for I think 10 years at a time.  During that time, you have to maintain the ground by a set of rules or standards.  If you fail to comply, they can make you pay back all the money you received from the program.  So it's important to mow and disk when they tell you to.

I don't think it's too bad.  It allows us income on ground that otherwise isn't farm-able, or has a high failure rate.  Only thing I don't like is the long duration.  If you want or need to take it out of the program early, again, you have to pay back the money.

Buzzed some weeds off last week with the one 70. And putting cover crop out yesterday with the 5400 "organized broadcaster". My name for a grain drill.

Not shiny, but they sure work when I need them too ...

The 560 and the square baler were my Dad’s .. he bought them both new, the 560 in 1963, the baler in the 70’s I believe..

430? We square baled with the exact same unit for as long as I can remember. Except we pull a 10 bale stooker behind it. Still have the 560 my grandpa bought new. We use the 766 or hydro 100 on the square baler now

Cut down about 20 acres tonight. I'm guessing it'll start raining in a couple hours now. 😂

Plowing one rough field to fall seed. Very wet field commonly, had a lot of compaction and a few wet spots yet 

Sorry for the bouncing. I have to get a rider to video instead of trying to get it myself while driving

Yes, it is a 430 baler... we always pulled a 10 bale stooker behind it as well, that someone had to ride on and stack the bales by hand..  that was when we did a lot of square bales... now I just do a few squares every year to keep the barn topped up...

I like to pick them up with my team and wagon if rain isn’t threatening... this year it was ..

Seeded 90% of a field yesterday before it rained. I had done the headlands out and back once and was on the second trip back and I noticed the tree that fell in the edge of the field. It was getting windy and dark 2 1/2 hours before normal dark time ..... I got soaked to the bone. Sorry for the pictures not being the best. Driving the 1066 in 2nd high TA front full throttle IMG_20190817_175202964.thumb.jpg.797fe868d768409f7d1c6fa083a2eaaf.jpg

I seen this earlier today............thought, man, that is great, he got it and we didn't.............Wanted to try mowing fencerows and ditch banks back today with the boom mower, just about finish one of the banks, blew a hydraulic hose at about the same time the sky let loose..............Soaked everything.  After this last week and a half, said the heck with it, came in the house and am sitting on my A** infront of the AC on the puter.

Only one I got this one from right after I bought it and hooked it up acouple years back........I tore off the support wheel, it didn't do anything other than add weight.  Was on the verge of too much weight for the 2wd 5288, but it sure works good on the 6588,  and I am not afraid of destroying the good for a year tires on that either, so I really can go to town!

Toggle trips are preferred in my neighborhood so the bottom won’t ride out if the hard ground.

When we first got it (used of course) it was set up for non rocky ground. We broke two expensive parts on two different bottoms before we got the operators manual and saw the adjustment to the trip mechanism for letting it trip easier. We are rocky and stony in places here but the worst is the ledges

That 270 seens to be playing with that plow. My friend wants to run a 8 bottom onland behind a JD 8100 told him he better go to 6 bottom.
