    Hay feeder mess?

    That pretty much mirrors my experience, and we're 1100 miles apart. I can't remember the exact number, but I'm thinking it lowered my hay use by 30-35%. But you can only roll out what they will consume in a 24 hour period, roughly 30 lbs/head. The increase in calf wellness and lack of...

    Hay feeder mess?

    I used to keep good records of how many rolls I fed each year per cow, and remember the first year we started unrolling hay rather than putting it in rings I was shocked by how much hay it saved. I unroll 80-90% of the hay now, and only use rings if on a farm where it's not feasible to drive to...

    Select Sires probably knocking at your door as we speak. I'm assuming dogs worked on its ears, but does it ever get cold enough down there to freeze them off?

    Skid Steers

    I rank ours right up there with the side by side, both of which I put off buying for years as I thought they were overpriced. Then I used one of each that belonged to someone else, and saw how handy they were.

    Goose Neck bed

    What year/models does that apply to? I took the camera out of the tailgate of my 2019 F350 and mounted it on the back of the Hydrabed we put on it. I had to get creative with things, but it wasn't impossible.

    Consignment Sale

    I wonder if that is legal in today's day and time? I would actually prefer that merchants apply the 3% (or whatever the charge is) to the customer using that particular form of payment instead of automatically accessing it to every customer. I'll gladly pay in cash/check/rupees if it saves me...

    Consignment Sale

    I'm inclined to believe the same, but this time it wasn't worth pushing the issue, to me. I also figured they had already tacked on the 3% mentioned by Dave above and why should I bother trying to save them that fee.

    Consignment Sale

    I'm just tickled to see an auction that doesn't accept plastic cards. I bought a new seat for one of my tractors at the farm show in Louisville last weekend and the company didn't accept cash, that just doesn't set well with me.

    Putting the kubota to work

    And I'm betting you're going to let Jerry take the credit for that one!

    A/T tires

    They must have changed their rubber compound in the last 10 years or so, that's when I started noticing the dry rot showing up sooner than later.

    A/T tires

    I've used BFG A/T's on most everything that gets a fair amount of miles for the past 30 years or so, absolutely loved them until Michelin bought out BFG (or so I heard). Since then, I've had two sets that haven't balanced very well, and they dry rot much faster. The Michelins on my wife's...

    Grapples??

    I've got a root rake grapple like the one in the link below. I think I would prefer one with two independent claws on top rather than one huge one. Mine is pretty frustrating trying to move big blocks of firewood as all but the biggest block will fall out. Also hard to grab certain trees if...

    Flat faced couplers

    There's no on-size-fits-all when it comes to o-ring material. Viton is one of the preferred materials when it comes to contact with diesel fuel, but won't hold up in the processes where I work because of chemical incompatibility. And I also wouldn't rely on color as an indicator of material...

    Flat faced couplers

    If you can give me a cross section and OD or ID, I'll flip thru the Parker o-ring book in my desk at work and see if I can find anything close.

    Baler belts

    Not sure how old your baler is, but I'm betting it's at the point where the belt material is starting to dry rot and deteriorate a bit. Once that happens, any style of lacing isn't going to last very long. I put a new set in my baler a few years back and it was a game changer as far as...
