@  Vol : (25 October 2014 - 12:06 AM) Happy Birthday kyfred.....hope it is a bright sunny day in the Bluegrass...
@  Bgriffin856 : (24 October 2014 - 10:11 PM) I should say by better ground I mean good drainage. It all seems to grow decently under good conditions
@  Bgriffin856 : (24 October 2014 - 10:09 PM) Ground is usually too wet at harvest on about all our ground. Alot of our corn gets chopped before its ready cause it is on wet ground and if you dont get it early it'll be there in the spring. Atleast with corn it'll stand till its frozen or spring. Plus you can make high moisture or snaplage and get it off earlier than drying it
@  mlappin : (24 October 2014 - 09:48 PM) If you can grow corn on it then it will grow beans. Usually on our poorest ground we grow soybeans, then get rye planted on it and use that for cover crop seed the next year.
@  Bgriffin856 : (24 October 2014 - 08:36 PM) PaMike need some more, better ground before I start growing beans. I'd rather grow all our corn needs and buy protein
@  cornshucker : (24 October 2014 - 08:32 PM) Cline 3300 must be doing OK
@  haybaler101 : (24 October 2014 - 08:09 PM) And cutting beans--again, for hire. Cut 50 acres today for a buddy. They still have 600 acres of beans and 600 of corn to go.
@  FarmerCline : (24 October 2014 - 07:29 PM) Started cutting beans today.....the beans are ready but the stems are still very green.....looks like silage coming out of the straw chopper.....slow going. The are yielding about 55-60 bushels an acre.
@  PaMike : (24 October 2014 - 02:13 PM) In your dairy operation I would think raising soybeans could save you a lot of money over buying.
@  PaMike : (24 October 2014 - 02:12 PM) Bgriffin856-A lot of those smaller machines can be found for almost scrap value anymore. Dont any of your neighbors have combines?
@  Bgriffin856 : (24 October 2014 - 01:42 PM) Washing and cleaning up and put away equipment. Can't belive its all over for another year :(
@  Bgriffin856 : (24 October 2014 - 01:41 PM) A 3300 would be a great combine for a smaller operation. Something nn like that is what I would start out with
@  Shetland She... : (24 October 2014 - 06:57 AM) 46° and overcast here in srn NH. Prolly get to lower 50s and cloudy later
@  somedevildawg : (23 October 2014 - 10:28 PM) @ vol...it's about time. Can't believe that muschamp is still there, may not be by game time
@  haybaler101 : (23 October 2014 - 07:33 PM) Done with beans!
@  Vol : (23 October 2014 - 06:31 PM) The "Sheriff" is back on in primetime on the NFL network and CBS at 8:25 eastern.....go Broncos.
@  Vol : (23 October 2014 - 05:21 PM) Sounds like the GA Bulldogs are going to get Gurley back for the Florida game.....great news for Muschamp.
@  Dill : (23 October 2014 - 01:27 PM) This is one of the longest storms I remember. Looks like its going to keep spinning over us for another day or so.
@  somedevildawg : (23 October 2014 - 12:47 PM) Just @ the same general time, doesn't have anything to do with the eclipse... Gonna b cool to see....I remember a total solar eclipse back in 71-74 that was real cool....this one will be purty good I think, hoping for clear skies in the east...
@  Bonfire : (23 October 2014 - 10:23 AM) My weather station console was scrolling something about a Orionid Meteor Shower the other day. Related to the eclipse?
