    Shredder opinions

    Hi all. I’m looking at 12’ shredders and think I’ve narrowed down to two. Thought I’d ask if anyone has experience with the ModernAG Viper and/or the Land Pride RC2512. Both seem to be medium duty and would meet my needs, the ModernAG costs 1k more, so wondering if it’s worth it. I like the...

    Kubota M7060 Fan Belt Match?

    Hi everyone. Wondering how to find a substitute fan belt for Kubota M7060. Kubota part number is 3C631-79322 but local Kubota dealer doesn’t have one in stock. Anyone know a good replacement part number I can pick up at an auto parts store? Thanks.

    Disc mower height adjustment?

    Hi everyone. I picked up a used disc mower, JD 275, and have a few questions as I’ve never used one before. I took it for a real quick test run, which seemed mostly successful, but I’m a few areas in soft sandy soil, it really dug in more than I’d like. Not to mention the gophers have really...

    JD 467 Baler Monitor Question

    Hi all, I’m looking at a used 467, which seems to be in good shape. One thing I noticed though is that when hooking up the monitor, it shows the bale size indicator looking like there is half a bale in the chamber. Would this indicate bad sensors, or could this be cleared out somehow? This...

    Cow can’t get up....

    Hi everyone, I have an 8YR old cow that I rotated to a new pasture yesterday... and this morning couldn’t get up. She’s not in great shape, lost a little mass over the winter, but not scrawny either. She also has a 3 month calf. Questions for the group are, after how long should I give up on...

    Baler requirements

    Hi everyone. I’m researching baler requirements and thought I’d get some expert opinions here as well. I’d like to add a baler to the farm, nothing special or that will be heavily used (maybe 40 acres or so twice a year). With a JD 5075 tractor, HP rated 57 (43)@2100 PTO... is that sufficient...

    Weaning naturally

    Hi, Anyone leave it up to the cow on when to wean the calf? Certainly not my plan, just curious if a cow would eventually wean the calf in time for the next delivery. Occasionally I’ll have one that is an escape artist and will get back with the herd... yesterday saw it carefully crossing a...

    Weed ID?

    Hi everyone. Wondering if anyone has an idea of what this is and how to kill it? I sprayed with GrazonPD last week, and don’t see that it had much of an impact, even on the smaller weeds. Looks like the mesquite I hit had much better results, but these things look like they’re bouncing back...

    Colostrum production?

    I'm curious at what stage a cow's colostrum is produced for the new calf. Reason for asking is that I have one cow with a calf that are real loners and never came to the pens so I could properly wean. Finally got them separated last weekend (calf is 10 months old and was still nursing). I...

    Advice Request - Is this Retained Placenta?

    Hi, all. I've read several threads on RPs and understand the points of view regarding letting them be (for a while) and/or cleaning them out and giving antibiotics. My question is first if this is even an RP - or something else that might require intervention. The cow delivered a nice calf...

    When a calf dies...

    Is there anything to do with the mother cow to stop milk production - or I assume this will happen naturally, and how long does that usually take? It looks like a predator got to a newborn calf in the last 24 hours and cow is still hanging around it with very full udders. Just wondering if...

    Fertilizer recomendation?

    Hello all. I've had such great help and tips from this site - I thought I'd ask what folks use to fertilize their pastures - and when. I'm in Goliad County, TX - with roughly 50 acres of pasture. It's not well maintained, but I plan on changing that. There's some coastal on it mixed with a...

    Unattended Calf

    Hello, I have a heifer who gave her first calf a few days ago and both seem to be healthy. Today though I notice that the calf is being left on her own a lot and kicked away when trying to nurse. She is peeing, etc... so I guess she's getting some milk - but I don't see her getting much. The...

    Hereford Bull to the Sale Barn or Craigslist

    Hello, I'm wondering if I should sell this bull at the auction (Cuero, TX) or list him in some local classifieds. I'm thinking I'd get more for him selling him in the paper or craigslist - but thought I'd get the opinion of some experienced folks out there. He's 3.5 years old - and I have no...

    I'm a little confused about how much Grazon to use in my sprayer. I'd like to add some to a 30 gallon sprayer pulled behind a 4 wheeler. It has a small 5 foot boom with three nozzles. (from tractor supply). Assumming I'm pulling at 3 mph - how much Grazon should I add to the 30 gallons of...

    Hello, I have roughly 15 acres I'd like to spread some bermuda seed on this Spring - and another 30 acres next year if this goes well. I've disc'd the area and am looking for a good spreader to pull behind a 4 wheeler. Any advice? Also, once I've spread the seed, what's the best way to get it...

    Boom Sprayer Question

    I have about 100 acres that is in need of several years application of herbacide to reduce brush and weeds. My question is if using a 20' boom sprayer on the 3 point hitch pulled behind a tractor - at normal rates of speed and pressure, how long would a 200 gallon tank last before needing to...

    Brangus Heifer Cost?

    I'm looking at 10 month old Brangus heifers and not sure what to offer for them. They are in Southwest TX and look pretty healthy... but I see a wide price range when searching online classified adds. I'm also looking at Brangus heifers that have calved once already... and would like some...
