The temperature is up, the forecast is for it to get above freezing for the next several days here in northern MO, the 970 is running well, the cows are fed and the AM radio is keeping me company. Life is indeed good.

The serial number is 8662201 which I think makes it a 1970 model. My Dad bought the tractor at a farm sale sometime around 1983. I put the loader on it about 10 years ago. It has been a very good tractor for us.
Kurt, I would of liked to had your 1070 with the snowblower here at times this winter but I make do with a blade.

Do you get a lot of wasteage unrolling bales? I would really like to spread my winter manure around a bit better then moving a ring with every bale. I'm just feeding 35 head with a grass fed cow calf deal going. They're out on pasture all winter, with access to thick woods for shelter. I've tried spotting bales in the late fall (after rain potential) in row, sticking fiberglass rods with electric wire and moving the cattle thru them, but they crap on the pile and never even get close to the bottom........

I fed cattle like that for years. Cows always have a "clean Plate" to eat from. I found that how much waste you got could be determined by the amount and time of day they got fed. I would not feed right away in the morning. Cows would then clean up what they would have walked away from if you had offered another bale Long..just my .02

oldproudvet, if the ground is dry or frozen and you don't over feed, then there is not much waste as "dzc3" said. Some people don't like doing this because they have to feed everyday but their water needs to be checked everyday anyhow. But when it is muddy out, that is another story. Some springs we can unroll till grass turn out time and some we have to go to bale rings for a while because the cows will stomp the hay in the ground and just waste it.
Dave S., the internet has made this world a lot lot smaller. Most of the time that is a good thing just like what we are doing now (yesterdays tractor). Not many good (in my opinion anyway) AM radio stations left.

Ronald nice tractor & cows...... i need a hay spear, does your hay spear attach to the bucket? I use round bales to feed my horses, it is more work with a loader w/bucket . I put one in the barn on its side, unroll how much I need at a time . more hay for the money.

axe55, this is a bale fork only attachment. It has two long spears side by side and it works really well for me. I also have an older loader that does not have the quick attach feature and have it fixed up so that I can put two spears right on the bucket. I got by with it for a lot of years. It worked OK but the other one works much better.
With the price of hay, I think it is a good idea to just feed what you need each day and keep waste to a minimum.
