Oh yes your neighbor directly south of you told Terry my brother at a meeting the other day all the wonderful stories about that guy.  how the day he got his license from the state patrol he went to his father's Logging company and wrote him five tickets in the yard because he was pissed that daddy wouldn't let him be a logger with him. Since he qreaked seveal trucks.  AND that the scale house he was stationed in Lyman had been burned down or ran over by trucks three times in two years or something because everyone hated him so much.  It quite fascinating his story and how the heck he keeps a job and of course his son is following in his footsteps I understand.  The state paid for him to move to next county since he recieved seveal death threats.  Perfect fit for a State employee i guess.  But most guy say I got off like a rose.....20k "over" wt is big deal in a semi they say

Hmmm.  Use to be a base like $85.00 plus .03 a pound for being over loaded. Sorry, Generally I'm very respectful of the law, however, In this case to many run ins with him so once a dickhead always a dickhead.

Did 30a of corn last week.  Needed feed....  Rest prob end of this.  But we went from perfect spring and summer to wet like that.  Hope for lond drish spell.  Corn is only time i wish we had our own chopper.  Then i wake up....

Dont see many of these Fords.  At scrap yard.  80yo former owner of company that had 15 of them was driving it.  SIL took over the gravel Co

Little lighting in new feed alley for dry cows.  Should just make it rv storage and work at McD...pay better than mine last 4 years!

Make our own gates from old ones for dry cows.  

Hoped to plant grass after corn but it rains every otherday and now its past 9/15 so no point in fall seeding.  Quick disc it down an tossed out some wheat.  Hope for nice run in late march to plant fescue.

Had friends over day....taught the little one about bb guns so for a hour they shot a milk jug!.  Its 60...my kid thinks its 80 as you see..

Family pic day....best one imo

Is that an 8 row? I got a call two days ago and was offered a 970 Class for 80K with a hay and 8 row head. 3900 hours on the main engine. 

Have a safe harvest and hopefully you get a good enough yields to carry you through

Are there covers seeded under the corn?  If so what is there and how is it applied?  Or is it “naturally occurring cover?” LOL!  

Yep inner seeded rye at cultivate like 35#/ac  outsides thickest but in month most of field look almost this good

Yep...pretty much standard locally.  One custom guy just got 10 row.  Not bad price if maintenance was done

Busy week.  Got our grass done (6th).  Custom guys driver fianlly had a accident.  The entire ag community said this guy needs to go.  My friend was in the dumptruck.  Said he had to come in on the round a bout at 40.  It slid 20'+ and hit the 2018 KW he was driving and pushed it few feet.  New kw hoods are multi piece so should need a fender and etc to be going.  The silage truck was a 80s 900 and rough already.  Box prob ok truck done.  Idiot tow truck "operator" did more damage than wreak my friend who they were chopping for said.  He wrapped stap through the door opening to tip up.  After smashing all the clearance lights an noticing the cab tweaking he stopped.  Buddy asked if he would like to use his tractor since he would of did a better job than that.  Kid got hurt a bit but nothing major.  He had been called 2x that day to slow down.  Other drivers said they knew it was coming.  Truck got impounded. 

 

Our peat field was kinda soft.....drug every load though this 100x100yd area.  This one had to be dumped...ended up digging bumper out then getting out.

Helped friends with their silage too.  They have 5 garbage trucks.  This one was free!

Friends (dentist) 5yo boy.  He was excited he had just watched a vid on building combines!  And he got some mt dew...dentist kids.?

Brake line on my farmtruck rusted out.  Dont know anyone who has ever replaced one ever locally.  In Canada its common with salt.  I went 3 pieces and routed new one.  Without removing bed and alot of swearing i couldn't see running a oem one.

Looks like my brother's chocolate lab when he was a baby. Damn good dog. Rolo is his name. I don't know about your pup but Rolo grew into a ox of a dog. He's over a 100lbs now.

Oakley here is a half choc lab half german shepherd.  We'll see how he turns out.  Should be smart though.  Cant see any shepherd in any of his siblings.

Well that fun ended.  The curse of paying over 50 bucks for a dog (125 this one...he wanted 300) continues.  Had bump size of marble behind neck (in tractor pic you can see it on lf side) I felt Saturday when we got him from wifes kin.  It grew...oh oh....bet he vacc with same needle.  Called him...yep same old needle from the med cab in the barn.  Thur pm it now is golf ball and he hate touching it.  Vet was around area so he quick looked.  Antibiotics and see.  Fri morning...hey bud its now baseball (5# mutt) sized.  Ill be by later.  Cut 4 slits..huge abscess of fluid/goop from dirty needle.  Tied some surgical strapes though to keep holes draining.  He had student vet today so she helped at least.  More antibiotics....he is hurting scooter now.  Lets hope this is it.  Oh and cousin says he will give kids money back(from corn sales).  I said hold on.....the $ was for the shots basically anyways.  Lesson learned....sometimes deals dont work out smooth!

Well crap.  Went to look how he was at 9.  He didn't make it.  Called vet....figured liver was taxed with that infection.  It grew fast vs yesterday.   Well the stress on liver then stress of getting worked on.....lots of tears.  They all came out before bed since i decided they could bring him in house for night.
