    Liquid feed

    I am down to ten head. My neighbor is going to put out 3/4 of a bag of cubes twice daily. Luckily I bought 40 bags when they were $10.25 a bag. I paid . 15 1/2 cents per pound for liquid feed. I will probably cull a little more when I return.

    Liquid feed

    How much are you paying per ton of liquid feed. I am going to need to supplement the feed for my cattle. My pastures are burning up but about 18 inches to 24 inches tall. Mostly coastal with some Bahia grass mixed in to it. I culled hard in December and January due to health.

    Notre Dame

    I took a quick trip this weekend to South Bend Indiana to watch Notre Dame play Navy. My dad attended the Naval Academy. I wanted to go to Notre Dame but Uncle Sam had other plans for me. It is a beautiful campus. Lots of dark beer and friendly people.

    Hydraulic pump

    Got my Kubota M 4900 tractor back today. It was a simple air lock. They removed the Fel and drove it for 15 minutesu, no success. Next they took the line off top of pump.They cranked it till fluid flowed. That fixed it.

    Hydraulic pump

    It is a 2006 Kubota M 4900 4 wd. I ran it for probably a total of thirty minutes but couldn't drive it the fel was down. I havee changed the filters without all the fluid , but thought it was probably time to change everything. Probably a $1000.00 mistake.
