if this snow keeps at it...

Well things aren't looking good for us here... snow, more coming, no heat to melt anything, still over a foot of wet snow sitting on the ground..


just putting up some photos from last years seeding maps.. what a nightmare! we were stuck with the drills over 60 times.. seriously, over 60 times. you can sort of tell these are supposed to be square quarters.

Looks just like my 1rst in crop spraying. Burn off was fine, but that was it. You are not alone on getting stuck, neighbor was pushing 60 too on seeding. Makes for long ass days. Got 2" of snow last night covering what very little dark spots that were around. At midnight checking cows had 7 Canadian geese sitting on a run off slough, by 2:30 the snow was in full gear and I assume the geese ****** off back south as they were no where to be seen. I don't blame them either.

That’s not going to speed up spring header testing!

Funny (sorta) vid!

I would give you a like on that Brian, but there is nothing to like about it. Looks the same here.

There's a guy that doesn't want to meet a Canadian in a dark alley!

We are under a severe thunderstorm watch and a winter weather advisory right now.

Cattle feed is getting freaking tight here. I can make May 5, trying to come up with a plan.

Don't blame the baker when the butcher bakes the bread.

Supposed to get a pile of snow here tonight and tomorrow, I hope that by some slim chance we just get rain but sleet coming down at the moment. Short term impact might be a power outage for a while.
