    Used Milk Storage Vats and Such Things

    Got a question for the dairy folks. Is it possible to buy used milk storage vats and other dairy equipment, and would a person want to do this? Met a guy yesterday who has a goat dairy, but the price of the equipment is cost prohibitive right now. I thought I would bring the problem to the...

    New Study - Give Me a Break!

    I heard this on the news today. Latest study states that kids with surnames that begin in the last half of the alphabet are more inclined to rationalize things due to the fact that teachers line kids up by alphabetic names, and they are subconsciensely(sp?) trying to move themselves forward as...

    New Event for the Red Neck Olympics

    I think I may have a new event for the Red-Neck Olympics, thanks to a storm that blew in the latter part of last week - Hay Skating/Sailing. All it requires is 65 mph winds (real or artificial), a pitchfork, a fairly densely packed 1/2 flake of a large bale of hay, and a fence to try to raise...

    Question About Hay Fields

    I'm curious as to how many of you routinely patrol your hay fields and keep the trash cleaned out of them. The reason that I'm asking is that most of the hay we produce is alfalfa, so we have to buy grass hay to keep up with the demand from our boarders and the general public that we sell hay...

    Wonderful, wonderful news!!!!

    I don't usually share things about my life with the general board, but this is just too great to not share - it's looking like my mother does NOT have uterine/cervical cancer! Yippee!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D We won't know for sure for another 2 weeks or so, but at this point it looks like a...

    Getting Big Square Bales off the Bale Spears

    Need some advice here. I can spear the bale, I can pick it up and tote it to where ever I need to take it to, but I'll be darned if I can get that danged bale off the spears! What am I doing wrong? I believe the spears are perpendicular to the bale when I spear it, and then I tilt the spears...

    For those of you who remember her, Espan aired an original movie about Ruffian tonight and, being an admirer, I watched it. I had already done some research on Ruffian - I remember the match race between her and Foolish Pleasure - and I found it interesting that both her sire and dam were...

    Probably Stupid, But Do You Believe In Ghosts?

    My 2nd dog was put down last September due to severe pain as a result of arthritis and hip dysplasia - the Rimadyl wasn't controlling it, and I couldn't see the sense in increasing the dosage when it would also increase the potential of destroying her liver, kidneys, and stomach. I was with her...

    Target Practicing

    I'm not knowledgable about rifles/hand guns, so I was wondering what calibre might have the capability of going through a 3X3X8 bale of hay on the short side? I'm looking to set up a practice target range, and would like to ensure that there is no chance that I could hit anything other than my...

    Maybe I'm the Only Idiot, but Just in Case

    I found out something rather interesting today - and not in a good way, either. How many of you knew it was possible for someone to move a 3X3X8 bale of hay that outweighs you by 4 times plus, simply by grabbing a string to help you shinny up the bale? I didn't, until today. I was tarping a...

    Not sure where to post this, so I'm posting it here. Here is the situation - we run a horse boarding business, another horse boarding business closed down this year, the local college has expanded their rodeo team, and we have rented out pens to accomodate the demand. This means that we have...

    Information Please?

    One of my dogs was diagnosed with arthritis in her hips today. She has been placed on Rimadyl, which has the potential of messing up her liver, kidneys, and stomach. I've read the literature provided, the pamphlet that came with the starter box, and done some research, but I'm wondering if...

    For People Who Might Could Use a Little Help with Livestock

    I was just channel surfing, and ran across a program on RFD TV called "Purina". It is a series - although I'm not sure if it is weekly, since today is the first time I've seen it - and today's show (which started at 6 pm MST) dealt with weaning bottle calves. From the looks of it, it appears...

    Crazy Weather

    We had a hard frost here last night - temps got down to 27/28 degrees. :o All of the leaves on the corn are turning black, but I'm not sure if the frost killed it or just set it back. The weeds are all wilted like they have been sprayed, too. The higher elevations got snow, and The Summit...

    Idle Curiosity - How Many Horses?

    Slow night, and I'm curious. I had to go to Cheyenne the other day, and I got to counting horses in pastures. It seems that 4 is the magic number when it comes to horses, and I'm wondering why that is. Although a few pastures had less than 4, and 1 or 2 had more than 4 - the vast majority of...

    I was in Cheyenne today, and heard about this website on a local radio station. In honor of our servicemen and women, I am passing the link on. http://www.honorthefallen.org/links.shtml

    Job Market

    Just for the heck of it, I'm wondering what the job market, and cost of living is like in everyone's area?

    Thought I Would Share

    Call volume at work today was unbelievable - I didn't think the phones would ever stop! In the midst of all the crying and complaining was a call from a 40 year old gentleman from Tennessee who owned a rental property. He had leased it some months ago to a couple in their 60's (I believe he...
