@  Vol : (27 March 2017 - 08:42 PM) The scroll says it's "raining cats and dogs"...and it sounds like it's pouring.
@  Vol : (27 March 2017 - 08:32 PM) Storm front just came thru and the wind is howling.....nearly 40mph according to my Davis weather station.
@  Vol : (27 March 2017 - 07:00 PM) Looks like a lot of precip is close at hand.
@  Vol : (27 March 2017 - 04:47 PM) @kyfred Good to see you yesterday evening Fred.....I hope your drive was good to Northern KY.
@  bbos2 : (27 March 2017 - 03:35 PM) Paoutdoors. Yes im pretty sure thats the tunnle we came through. Really nice area. A lot more senic than our flat prarie in western ohio. Sae a lot of hay equipment and haystacks on the country side. Nice to see all the cattle grazing as well
@  RuttedField : (27 March 2017 - 03:30 PM) I love PA and the people there, but the worst road trip ever was in PA. There was a 22 car pile up with 3 people dead, and we sat under the I-81/I-80 interchange sign for 13 hours, drove ahead 7 miles, then sat for another 7 hours. It was bad. Snow drifted over the tops of cars. National Guard out in Humvees giving out formula to families with babies. People out of gas from idling so long. Bad...
@  Grateful11 : (27 March 2017 - 02:56 PM) bbos2: Wife and I went up into PA several years ago for a little roadtrip and went through a place called Menno on State Rd. 655 off Hwy. 22. Prettiest valley I've ever seen. Farms everywhere that ran that ran right up to base of the mountains on both sides of the road.
@  paoutdoorsman : (27 March 2017 - 02:52 PM) bbos2, did you come north on 81 from VA then head west on PA Turnpike? 8350 and I are not far off the I 76 near the Blue Mountain tunnel if you passed through that.
@  Grateful11 : (27 March 2017 - 02:39 PM) BW, wife and son used to take theirs to a much closer sale but there's so little volume there now it's not worth it. Guys were buying their calves there and then rushing them to Turnersburg and getting them in before the cutoff time and making money off their stuff, which they have the right to do, so they said, "we can fix that we'll just drive a little further and get better money ourselves". The auctioneers mic is messed up, sounds like he's underwater.
@  PaMike : (27 March 2017 - 02:34 PM) Nope, thats west part of the state...probably 4 hours from me..
@  bbos2 : (27 March 2017 - 11:57 AM) Runnin I 76 and 70 thru Pennsylvania today. Coming from virgina. Lot of pretty hillside farms thru here. Very neat country. Close to any HT members?
@  BWfarms : (27 March 2017 - 11:35 AM) The smart guys have been bypassing Siler City for Turnersburg. Better prices.
@  PaMike : (27 March 2017 - 11:34 AM) Yeah, I think the answer for me anyway is to run steers on grass all summer to sell in the fall as feeders. I do need to feed some animals over winter though cause I have hay I need to get rid of...
@  Grateful11 : (27 March 2017 - 11:25 AM) I thought it would just put up the link not the whole dang thing. Sorry about that.
@  Grateful11 : (27 March 2017 - 11:24 AM) PaMike it doesn't pay to keep them to that size around here anymore not in NC anyway. Bulls are bringing $1.35-1.65 in 375-500# range right now. Turnersburg Auction Live:
@  kyfred : (27 March 2017 - 10:31 AM) Getting into some heavy rain near Berea. It was good to see you VOL
@  Shetland She... : (27 March 2017 - 06:52 AM) 34º and light rain here in srn NH. Rain today with a high in low 40s.
@  PaMike : (27 March 2017 - 05:11 AM) They are about 1100lb, big frame but lean. Not setup for grain feeding..no bulk bins. Drive is tight for feed truck etc. Its dads place so "upgrades" gotta be approved..
@  paoutdoorsman : (26 March 2017 - 10:05 PM) I feel for ya PaMike. Can you feed them out a bit longer or are they ready for the rail?
@  PaMike : (26 March 2017 - 07:29 PM) Yeah, no kidding.. My grass fed buyer changed things up so I dont have him anymore...gotta decide what I am going to do..
