    6.7 Cummins

    I bought a 2007 6.7 about 3 years ago and it's been an awesome truck. Mine is a manual so I can't speak for the automatic transmission but the only issues I've had with mine is the ball joints and tie rod ends but that's a pretty common dodge problem. I have 123k on it now and it pulls great

    new holland workmaster 50 or Mahindra 2555?

    I bought a NH WM 55 4wd w/loader in 2014 and I have loved it. It does everything I need it to do, I put up around 50-60 acres of hay throughout the summer and I use it to mow ( Fella 5ft disc mower) and bale ( Vermeer Rebel 5420). I was torn between New Holland or Kubota when I purchased mine...

    Problems pulling a portable squeeze chute

    Thanks for the replies. I am posting 2 pictures of the chute we have. I have never posted a picture on here so if it doesn't work I'll try again. [/url][/img] [/url][/img] The tongue of the trailer is really light. Till-Hill I will have to check out the wheel bearings and see if that's it.

    Problems pulling a portable squeeze chute

    I bought a portable Priefert squeeze chute so I could work cattle on rented land without having to haul them to our main working area. It worked really well this past summer when we had a massive pinkeye outbreak. The only problem I have with it is when you pull it on the road you cannot go over...

    Land in VA Lease prices

    Thanks for your comments. Thanks skyhightree1 you gave me a different perspective on it. The guy already knows his land is bad. His son-in-law told me he had it rented to a pumpkin growers but the soil tested to acidic and they turned it down. Them guys are paying $300 an acre here.

    Land in VA Lease prices

    I am looking to lease about 50 acres in SW Virginia. It was once in Christmas trees so the quality is horrible. It would need a little fencing but a lot of work in lime and reseeding to get it back to grazing quality. My question is what would be a good starting rent price for something like...

    Phenylbutazone ?

    I Googled the the use of Phenylbutazone in cattle and found this, hope it helps. http://www.fda.gov/AnimalVeterinary/New ... 124078.htm Looks like it can cause some pretty adverse side affects in humans.

    Reg Bull Question

    Thanks everyone. I am still kind of new at this and just wanted some other opinions before I did anything. I think I am going to keep looking, I know there has to be a better one somewhere.

    Reg Bull Question

    The breeder said he was around 78 lbs. That was my first issue with thinking he calves might be to big. My heifers were only around 55-60 actual BW. I don't know much on the genetics of my cows or heifers. I bought them from my grandma she just has commercial cows that are bred to a commercial...

    Reg Bull Question

    I have never purchased a registered bull before. I have 20 head of young commercial cattle, 10 that just had their first calves this past march and 10 that are 14-15 month old heifers. Last year I bred my first 10 by A.I and had really good luck with it, we only missed 3. I am looking for a...

    Paralyzed Cow

    To start off, I have had no problems calving this year until now. We have had 25 calves with no issues with 5 more to go. Last week I found one of my cows laying down normal so I didn't bother checking on her. The next morning I week out to check the few cows we have left to calve and I noticed...

    We are having bad trouble with flies this year (we are located in southwest Virginia). Normally we really don't use much fly protection besides fly tags but this year the flies are really bad so I bought a couple backrubbers and the guy at the feed store told me to mix the insecticide with...

    Reusing CIDRs

    Thanks for your help, I already threw mine away I used this year, I wish I hadn't now that I know I could have reused them. I will try reusing some next time because those things are not cheap.

    Reusing CIDRs

    I used CIDRs in a group of heifers we A.I'ed this year along with a shot of PG and it worked really well out of 10 only 3 were open. I was talking to my neighbor the other day and he said that you could reuse CIDRs just wash them off and reuse them. Has anyone heard of doing this? My thoughts...
