Why do you wrap it? Sorry if that’s a stupid question but I don’t see that around here, just curious.

You bale it green and wrap it so it ferments. It's like putting silage or haylage in a silo, bunk or bag. Open them up after a few weeks of fermenting and feed them to cattle.  

It's called baleage. We have some guys around here that wrap all their round bales wet or dry. Cheap way to preserve the whole bale if you own your own wrapper

Don't use the older IH tractors I have for tillage work anymore so this is as close as I can get. Took the picture Wednesday. The reason for the DT 710s yet, is because of the low hours. Farmer's Equipment in Urbana got it traded in last fall from the original owner.

Yes correct I thought i said baleage but I guess i didn't haha.  Yeah we have have done some dry before. The only problem is it doesn't breath being wrapped.

Worked a few acres last night, the 3588 doesn’t like this 25’6” cultivator to well but she’s pulling it!

Yep except the tubeline doesn't quit working for no reason when it's -20° outside and you have an appointment to get to. Silo guys will know what I'm talking about.

My uncle planted his NH T8 360 and CIH  340 disc west of my house Wednesday night. Out came the 1086 to the rescue. Tractor wasn’t stuck bad but still. Grandpa bought the 10 new. (It has a door on it but the angle looks like it doesn’t)

Watch "1206 ih wheatland baling with 430" on YouTube

Ha! Very cool. That tractor has a big footprint.

We have a 435 IH baler. From what I've read here and other places, the IH balers are not especially loved, but our hasn't missed a bale in the 3 years we've had it.

Video of us baling just a bit last Saturday evening:

Planting sudangrass with our 1951 H. We use this tractor a lot. Have used it for as long as I can remember. Belonged to my dad when I was a kid. I believe my uncle purchased it new. Sure would be cool to know how many hours it has.

Wow, 1.8 inches Saturday! We only got a half inch west of town. Actually about the right amount as the garden was getting a little dry. I saw that rain in the distance but managed to avoid it.

Last field of beans. The dust was a welcome sight.

Love the hood ornament as a marker guide....just keep the duck centered on the furrow!  Dad used to have a single white wire...all I could ever see was "goal posts" when I tried to use it.  finally took it off.
