@  Shetland She... : (19 September 2014 - 06:41 AM) 38° and sunny here in srn NH. Sunny and upper 50. forecast for this afternoon. Barn roof was white this morning! :(
@  Vol : (19 September 2014 - 05:20 AM) Turnovers and missed FG's bites K State in the butt.....Auburn could have easily been beaten last night.
@  jturbo10 : (18 September 2014 - 11:34 PM) Every weekly forecast starts with lots of high probability for rain but it never develops....probably only 1.5 inches in two months. Glad I got 3 good cuttings. Going fishing in the morning so maybe that will force the issue especially since no rain is forecasted.
@  carcajou : (18 September 2014 - 09:59 PM) Never thought i would see $2000 yearlings, but i did today
@  Dill : (18 September 2014 - 09:36 PM) As for tap count we are starting a major logging project next month, hoping to get 2k out of our woods.
@  Dill : (18 September 2014 - 09:36 PM) Average seasoned price is around 250 here, there are guys who will deliver a 1/4 cord to condo buyers that work out to almost 500
@  PaMike : (18 September 2014 - 09:02 PM) What part of 10,500 FIRM dont the people of craigslist understand?? Will you take 9K??
@  hillside hay : (18 September 2014 - 08:43 PM) Shoot Griffin! 40 a fc is one helluva bargain! I quit selling it when it went below 55
@  stack em up : (18 September 2014 - 08:41 PM) Thanks mike. I feel bad it took this long. :(
@  Vol : (18 September 2014 - 05:56 PM) Ok, I got it stack em...seems to be working.
@  jturbo10 : (18 September 2014 - 05:22 PM) Had a customer call today about hay for his alpaca herd. Asked about protein and when I told him tests ranged from 17.7 to 14.5 he was worried that was too high. Guess high protein affects the quality of wool. Told him I had some cow hay of lesser quality at half the price and now he is going to get a couple of free samples tomorrow. I've sold hay to exotic animal customers to include zebras and elephants but never alpaca.
@  stack em up : (18 September 2014 - 03:45 PM) Why does Vol not show up as one of my friends? I added him multiple times but it doesnt show. :confused:

@  stack em up : (18 September 2014 - 11:51 AM) Hey Cy, started using the plastic twine I got from you. Baler and operator are very happy! :D
@  Shetland She... : (18 September 2014 - 06:29 AM) 48° and sunny here in srn NH, Prolly stay sunny and get to 70 today.
@  PaMike : (18 September 2014 - 04:26 AM) I have a fireplace and only used it once in 7 years. Not home enough, and when I am I dont want to be messing around with un needed work...
@  PaMike : (18 September 2014 - 04:25 AM) I am getting 180 a full cord delivered for seasoned split hardwood. Its mostly all yuppy buyers that have a fireplace and just want a fire.
@  mlappin : (17 September 2014 - 10:18 PM) I've seen pickup loads sell for 120 here. Shortbed pickup even, but all split seasoned ash stacked as high as the cab.
@  deadmoose : (17 September 2014 - 10:15 PM) cut split seasoned? 120 a cord? what are they complaining about?
