....Now thats funny....


Do you put all your N on at on time? Reason I ask is we put some on in the fall with dry fertilizer, and the rest on in the spring with a split app. with our sprayer.

Our wheat is drilled at 150# per acre. One 75 acre field this year we tried almost 200# per acre. We apply about 30# of N dry in the fall and a split application of about 100# (40# first shot +60# second shot) in the spring. We are going to try two shots of 60# this year.

Looks like your dog taking up A square foot,43560X57=2,482,920 pounds/acre. Hey don't look at me, you started it. Good pictures, even better line. And don't give me that, That's not my dawg line!

unlike most people think, cloning will not give you a replica of your dog. hair color / patter is a phenotype trait. you would only get a genetic replica. the dogs attitude and colors will be purely environmental. cloning also introduces more problems with the animals later in life.
