    And watch the documentary "The Social Dilemma" on Netflix... Ever find yourself wondering how did the world get so screwed up? Or maybe how did YouTube know I would like that video?

    Continuous fence first attempt

    Put up this continuous fence at my FIL farm around his barnyard area. Old fence was just about gone. Easy enough to work with for sure. Some mild topography changes but not real bad.

    Watering at remote locations

    How do you water your cattle at isolated or remote locations? Especially if you have no electric. I have 3 shallow wells blown in and use a gas powered pump to fill tanks. Have small pond on one pasture that stays in water all year.

    2019 Big 10 Wrestling Results

    Penn State dominates with 4 individual champions. Was shocked Minnesota's big man lost. He looked unbeatable all season. Iowa's Spencer Lee dropped another match to Northwestern's Rivera. Some outstanding wrestling all weekend. NCAAs should be fantastic this year.
