  1. Self Employed Farmer

    Crop Production
    I would certainly like to be self employed in farming, and a lot of things in its favor are falling in my lap. I am thinking about logging through the winter, then try self-employment.

    A piece of ground right next to me is available for me to lease. I have first chance. It is 320 acres total, at least 160 of that is farmable, the rest is timber with grassy areas, enough to pasture 30 head over the summer. Lease is $3,500 a year for the whole thing. Is 200 acres enough to be...

    I have heard that the MC is best in thick-stemmed forage.

    It is a Westendorf loader. It has not been used much, but has sat outside for a couple years. The cylinders are in good shape though.

    Would these work best in thick-stemmed forage?

    Hey guys. There is a Matthews Company rotary scythe for sale in the area. I believe 7 foot. It is in good shape. I know absolutely nothing about them, except it looks like a shredder. Are these things junk? Or useful?

    Hey guys, a guy across the little valley is selling all of his stuff. He has never been interested in farming, and doesn't care about the equipment. He has got a JD 4020 with a loader for sale. He has never had the loader on, but it is all there. Back tires are almost new. No major leaks, sync...

    Have any of you guys plowed your crop lifters into the ground and absolutely destroyed a bunch of crop lifters? Or am I the only idiot to do so! :(

    Thanks Tjim. We have been engaged since February. She supports me, believes in me, and will help and work hard. Our dreams may be slightly different, but I trust God that it will work out. I can certainly keep going for now, plus it is better to expand slower than what I was originally planning...

    Hey guys, I am getting married and currently logging for a job. Logging schedule is the complete opposite of farming, so it is hard to farm much. I would like to be self-employed in farming. I just don't know how to exactly. I have fairly good markets here, a lot being direct marketing grain. Is...

    Yeah, logging is not dead here at all. Log trucks everywhere, and the sound of talkie tooters throughout the mountains. Talkie tooter is the radio controlled horns. It is the main business here.

    I already have an older cat, but would like a grapple skidder for small contract jobs. Basically, I will hopefully be self-employed with farming and small logging jobs after my family gets established. For now though, I am logging, getting up at 2:30 am, and getting back at 3:00 pm, so not a...
  14. Forestry Tractor

    Tractors
    Hey guys, haven't been on much for a while, as I am getting married and needed a stable job, so I am working under a skyline. Harvest is going well, despite the opposite schedule. Although I have never mentioned logging here before, that is the main industry here, and I have been quite involved...
  15. Field Pea Salvage

    Crop Production
    My field peas are 20 miles away, so don't get to check them often. Just checked again, and it is good enough to combine.

    Crop Production
    My peas aren't looking too great with all the heat. I am thinking about cutting it for hay to salvage. I am going to take a good, detailed look at it tomorrow. Have any been successful at it? Does pea hay sell well? I have grown oat and pea hay and done well.
  17. Hay merger

    There is a NH 166 for sale next door. It is brand new, but several years old. I don't know the price, but wonder if it is gentler on fragile clover leaves and such. Is it cleaner?

    It would be fairly safe to buy non-powered implements, like tillage equipment, right? I see quite a few plows and such that I would like to get. Not a lot of stuff for sale around here.

    I used my TR for the first time today in barley. I really like the machine. I ran a little fast to keep it full.

    I know some guys who have bought tractors sight unseen, thousands of miles away. How do you even know what you are getting? Pros and cons? I guess a pro would be a much wider selection of tractors.
