    Cultipacker for Planting Cover Crops?

    It is. Grimes county not too far from College Station. Aside from the advice on small grains for early grazing, any thoughts on using a cultipacker to help increase germination? Wondering if it’s worth the investment

    Cultipacker for Planting Cover Crops?

    Rye Is what was recommended by the TAMU forage specialist and seemed to be the best for my area based on my research for early grazing and seed is readily available. I also put out ryegrass and have had good success with that but the rye seems so have given me some challenges in establishing...

    Cat 2 quick hitch help!!!!

    I bought the Carter's EZ hitch and love it. For me, it was between it and Pats. For my small tractor, the extra "length" that Pats added to the lifting arm would have made some of my implements too heavy. Carters didn't add length and actually added height which was beneficial as well. That...

    Cultipacker for Planting Cover Crops?

    For the light weight calf buyers

    Upon arrival, they all get: 1. BoviShield Gold 5. Some calves seem to have a reaction to this 5 - 7 days later so you have to keep a close eye on them to make sure they aren't getting sick. 2. Ultrabac 8 3. Multimen 90 4. Generic Nuflor (as a metaphylaxis because they're all super stressed...

    For the light weight calf buyers

    Newbie here and I would love some input on what I’m doing and how I might be able to do it better. I’m also showing how dull my pencil is for the original poster. I’m pretty new to raising stockers and recently moved onto a 20 acre place (ranchette or hobby farm if you want to call it that) in...
