Gochta. Here in my part of south central MN we tend to stay cold, while those warm spells like you had circle all around us. Dakotas, Wisconsin, up there in Canada, all get those brief warm spells where it melts. Usually not here, we are some odd cold spot once winter sets in.

We were in the low 30s F here a few days ago so did get a minor warm up, but far from warm enough to make imid. The tar roads were actually frosty and slippery, as they were so cold the slightly above freezing air condesnded on them!

We have had very little snow this year, that is unusual for us, the cold is really sinking in deep, bet we see some bad frost boils and some busted water pipes by spring.

Rye and alfalfa do well here, winter wheat isn't really hardy enough, can work but often doesn't it freezes out.

I have a question guys, my dad used to feed his work horses what he called green feed (oats cut not combined) stalk head and all, would there be a market for that with the horse or cattle people? and how much of the head would be lost going through a square baler?

Green feed does not go through a square baler. Horses do not eat haylage or baleage. Dairy farmers bale huge amounts of green feed and ensile it into baleage by wrapping it in the white plastic. The head stays on just fine. Green feed has to be fed within a few hours or it spoils. The farmer that I worked for as a kid made six inch long bales of green feed by taking all of the tension off. I walked along beside the pick-up with sides on it with a fork and pitched the bales into the truck.
