    Can a feedlot make any money at these prices?

    They aren't making money actually feeding the cattle. The big guys are making it on the board. Know their costs to the penny when everything aligns on the board to make money they lock everything in from feed costs to purchase and sell price. Lots of ways to look at it depending on who you're...

    Bradford County Florida Sex Offender Signs

    I completely agree highgrit. The bad ones should be strung up and hanged. Rope is cheaper than paying for them to live in prison the rest of their life. Too bad its "inhumane" even though they aren't really human if they do that kind of shiit.

    Bradford County Florida Sex Offender Signs

    Yeah, my dad's agronomist that lives right up the road is on the sex offenders list. Him being on the list is due to plain being an idiot in highschool and thinking a video camera in the girls locker room was a good idea till he got caught.

    Pasture Hydrant

    All of our hydrants are in cement curbs with removable lids. Our water lines have to be below the frost line though so they are most likely deeper than yours. It is nice having the removable lid that way you can climb down in there and shut the water line off to the hydrant in the winter or...

    Spend money on fertilizer or weed killer first?

    Kill weeds then fertilize. Weeds take mositure and nutrients. It does depend how bad your weed problem is though.

    where am I?

    Haha I saw this the other day about walmart and got a chuckle out of it. I could see several members on here doing some of the items on this list. This is why women should not take men shopping against their will. After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to...
