    Here's 2 of the tractors, Ford 7610 II w/ Kuhn bale grinder and a New Holland TL-100 4X4 w/ bale hugger. Both rather tired... not a whole lot of money in dairy any more.
    The third is the little one in the last thread.

    Thanks,

    I sold all the firewood I could afford to (actually too much) before Thanksgiving. I heat entirely with wood, so now I am scrambling to get more for home! It's amazing how the price has gone up too, some guys are getting $300 per cord delivered.

    And, for that matter, sawdust is up too- $22 a cord last I checked.

    The joys of winter in Maine.....

    BTW, where in PA are you. I grew up in West Chester. (Chester County) and then farmed near Honeybrook for 2 years before I moved up here.

    It was about 38 when I took the picture. Right now it's in the mid 20's, tonight it will be colder.

    Well, all the dry hay round bales are gone, have about 100 balage still, but most will be going, and have sold all but 300 small squares....
    In other words, GREAT!
    This was a wet spring, hence the balage. Chopped a lot too, but the cows get that.....

    not a whole lot of money in dairy any more.

    I grew up on a dairy from in Northern MO. From time to time I wonder how the business has faired since I left it. Sorry to hear it isn't doing to well anymore. My family made a good living when we were still in it.

    Nice equipment.
