    Selling Out

    It was a tough situation for me and my family. I certainly feel that way, especially since in effect he was given the farm twice. Once as a gift, then he mortgaged it, and then when he was getting divorced my grandmother paid off the mortgage so he could keep the farm. But, it was also his to...

    Selling Out

    Some grandparents just don’t care. Last month I bought another 75 acres from my father. He was given that land free and clear before his dad passed away as a gift. He has just let it go to the wild-literally didn’t do anything with it for years. I’m an active rancher now-bought my own place...

    Hay wrap

    On mine I keep a contractor bag stuck through the top link, or a 5 gallon bucket hung on there. Works great on my m-5!

    Arkansas and Kentucky members ok after tornadoes last night?

    I’m fortunate! Our farm is about 25 miles west of Mayfield, but we’re fine. My wife is a traveling wound care nurse and unfortunately some of her facilities she oversees were destroyed. It’s a sad time here in Western Ky. Our prayers are with everyone impacted!

    Let's see em...

    Got this feller Monday evening. Was tempted to hold out for something bigger, but I got skunked last year so decided this wasn’t one to pass on this year.

    Old soldier, new rancher

    Welcome! Retired Coast Guard here, this forum is a gold mine. I’d recommend checking it daily! You may find ranching makes for lousy retirement income, but it does give a great sense of purpose!

    Wet Hay-what do I do?

    I was tempted to just unroll them all right now before they get moldy. Unfortunately not much of a mulch hay market here that I’m aware of. Maybe I should buy some feeders 😂

    Wet Hay-what do I do?

    No mold yet. How wet? I don’t have a moisture meter, but wet to the touch. It’s from the rows that were in the shade. It was on the ground and baled Friday, I would have just rolled them out immediately but I’ve heard grass clippings can be harmful and didn’t want to chance it. But I’ve...

    Wet Hay-what do I do?

    Hi everyone. While I read daily I don’t post too much. But I’d like to pick the brains of folks with a lot more experience than I have regarding some hay I rolled a couple of days ago. Most of the bales are fine, but I have some that were too damp. I knew they would be too wet when I baled...

    Tankless Hot Water Heater

    When we built our home in 2018, we got a tankless, but we have natural gas-it’s great! The builder did mention they wouldn’t install electric ones, due to poor performance (didn’t get any more in depth than that since it didn’t apply to us). It was just an aside, but one I remember-for whatever...
