    Autumn olive leaves

    Hello. Hello. I encourage everyone to destroy these plants. I have a long post about invasive plants in general: these are genetically designed to destroy our forests and pastures and are invading America. Their high sugar content are contributing to birds no longer able to finish their...

    Autumn olive leaves

    Hello and ya all have touched on a subject I am a self certified expert; ANY invasive species is detrimental in a variety of ways. In the late 1800s USA began purchasing plants from China. Since then, it has been a nightmare. We live in Ohio and across from a state park: I began noticing my...

    We had a similar situation: lord told me to sell our bull 6 months ago and I did not. He was only 3 but nearing a ton. Angus out of Champion Hill/Rito dam and Consensus Conneally bull (excuse the spelling). Bull mounted her and rammed her into a gate subsequently breaking her pelvis/severely...

    Newborn calf front hocks

    Your calf will probably straighten out. I'd be more concerned if it was the backend or just one limb. I've see colts do the same and they straighten out.

    Took a couple to the slaughter house yesterday...

    Wow. I agree as our daughter works in commercial pig farm op and they are giving Americans .25 cent raises in hope they quit to hire "others". Touchy subject but truthful. Our daughter consistently broke the record for picking pigs for buyers: they cheated her anyways (and she wasn't alone)

    Spraying hay field

    Hello again. We've bought land and against the advice of neighbors have mowed it early summer and late fall without spraying: the results were amazing. However, many are against this method. This works for us with excellent results. It may take 2 seasons for optimal grass cover but I am 56 yrs...

    Spraying hay field

    Hello. You really don't have to spray. Farmed my entire life and if you simply mow consistently the weeds will lose energy. In the long run, the good things you will avoid killing off will benefit your field and soil.

    Cut now or wait

    Cut now. Things overall will go downhill if you wait. You will have less nutrients as well if you wait. Also, seize the opportunity while you can. Hope everything works out. l

    New Here! Hows he look!??

    Hey looking at cattle. You never can tell til the first crop hits the ground; if you are not instantly sold on them, sell your bull. Your photo; take a pic a little lower to the ground and to the rear. He looks like he has stretch and depth of hip. Man O'War didn't produce crap and he...
