@  stack em up : (24 July 2016 - 12:29 AM) Wasn't there, buddy said $19,500?
@  swmnhay : (23 July 2016 - 09:42 PM) what thebaler with holeshner acc and forks bring?
@  stack em up : (23 July 2016 - 09:31 PM) Had a good day at auction. Think when all said and done, came away with just over $13,000. Thank God some people get whiskey bent and hell bound when they get to an auction. Sold one grain truck for $2,100 more than we paid for it in 2011
@  stack em up : (23 July 2016 - 09:27 PM) Still 84 here with 85% humidity. Grandma would call it very "close" this evening. Sweating just watching the calves play in a pasture...
@  somedevildawg : (23 July 2016 - 09:07 PM) We will be up to our ears in Bermuda grass the first week in September ...... Damned hay always gettin in the way of fun! Planted a patch of sunflowers myself Mike.....nothin better than a good bird shoot....less the game warden shows up :angry:
@  somedevildawg : (23 July 2016 - 09:04 PM) Ya know, I just had a cancellation on an apt with my hemorrhoid Dr.....it was the first Saturday in September too......damned ironic ain't it, I'm from Georgia and I prolly know them other folks from Georgia so heck fire, I might as well mosey on up to the great state of TN for a barrel burner :D :D :D
@  vtlpluyr : (23 July 2016 - 07:29 PM) @Waldo We have an old style barn from the mid to late 1800's and have to unload with a hay elevator from the wagon. One of those fancy wagons would not work for us and buying a thrower is cheaper than building a new barn. I have 2 younger brothers so we have free labour for stacking.
@  stack em up : (23 July 2016 - 06:12 PM) Poured a pad for our new grain dryer. Supposed to be delivered September.
@  Vol : (23 July 2016 - 04:25 PM) @endrow did a burn for a dove food plot. Kind of a tradition here in the South....big Dove shoot on the First Saturday of September....food all day...we have some Georgia friends come and sons and daughter in laws.....everyone shoots except my wife....she commandeers the kitchen, refreshments, attends to the overheated and makes sure everyone enjoys good southern hospitality. I make sure that its the best dove shoot anyone has ever been on. I start working the ground about 2-3 weeks beforehand.
@  PaMike : (23 July 2016 - 04:15 PM) What are you building Stack? A new barn?
@  endrow : (23 July 2016 - 03:35 PM) What did you spray for Vol
@  BWfarms : (23 July 2016 - 12:15 PM) Pounding posts was a valiant attempt. Got two 5" posts in the ground. The 8 inch corner was only able to start 11" and that was pounding like heck. It sure dried up in a week. Guess since everything is laid out, I'll wait until the next wet spell.
@  swmnhay : (23 July 2016 - 10:54 AM) You got rain comeing also Stack,I just drove tractor home in pouring rain.
@  swmnhay : (23 July 2016 - 10:53 AM) Yep Stack after 18 yrs if you doubled it every yr its something like 130,000 acres,lol
@  stack em up : (23 July 2016 - 10:04 AM) coming anytime. Gonna be miserable bull floating and screeding this morning...
@  stack em up : (23 July 2016 - 10:03 AM) We have concrete trucks
@  stack em up : (23 July 2016 - 10:03 AM) Weve
@  stack em up : (23 July 2016 - 10:03 AM) Ive
@  mlappin : (23 July 2016 - 10:00 AM) 86 degrees before 11am with 85% humidity, good day to stay inside and catch up on honey do’s, starting with taking the microwave apart since it just died
@  stack em up : (23 July 2016 - 09:11 AM) *just to add an acre every year. Doubling could get expensive by the time he's 10!
