Went out and met Larry Skoglund out near Miltona MN, west from Little Falls a bit and got my new to me manure spreader. Looks to be complete and with a couple tires and some small rust repair should be good to go. Very happy to get it, thank you very much Larry!






Larry also threw in 4 good tires so it won't take much to get it going. Guess the hay rake project will be put off some til this gets going as the barn is almost ready for live stock, so the manure spreader will be needed.

Also used my elevator on friday. Hauled my corn in to the elevator, but one of the wagons wasn't good for road hauling so I had to transfer it to another.



Got the blower on the 220 on Saturday, Good thing too as we got most of a foot of snow last night and it got a good work out today.




Also got the sheds organized for winter, had to make room for the two loads of corn that I'm going to feed to some steers and pigs.






Spent the rest of the day Saturday working in the barn taking down the milking equipment and getting set up for pens for the calves and hogs. Already bought 4 500lb steers and figure to get about 20 feeder pigs. I'll also get more smaller calves I think, or maybe one large steer for meat sooner. Budget is pretty tight because of the poor crop, so won't be a lot.






Yes I leveled that pipe. Lol. But I took out all the piping and the dividers and will separate that end of the barn into 3 pens at the support posts. As you can see the parts were largely reclaimed, I'll just need to make or buy 12' gates to go between the posts.

Took all day to get the spreader today because the roads were not great on the way out, but they were good by the time I headed home. Helped a lot that I spent quite a while chatting with Larry, I do manage to find things to talk about when I get around old tractor guys. Lol. Anyway, thanks again Larry, was a great visit and will look forward to the next one.

Next weekend will be finishing the barn so the cattle and hogs can come, shouldn't take long now.

I did make a deal on these 4 steers, so those pens need to get done so they can show up.

Jon, You have come along ways since my visit in September. I do have some spare parts for your spreader if you need. Jerry from Ohio

Jon Is that whitewash on the barn wall's? I hauled milk for my Dad in the early sixty's, and some farmers mixed a fly spray with the white wash, don't know if it helped. You sure are busy. I retired from Don L Jan 1 st Dave K

I used to raise holstein steers and heifers for butchering. Was the best tasting and tenderest meat I ever had.
