It’s winter time again. And with that, feeding the beef cattle. In this video I am feeding the cattle with a John Deere 630. Dad loaded the bale on the 3020 Diesel PowerShift, as well as brought a little more hay out (alfalfa) to supplement the bale where the weather was so cold (it was below zero f while feeding).
The hay is a three-way mixture of barley, oats, and peas, which the cattle quite enjoy.
Feeding in the Fog with the John Deere 3020 and custom-made bale feeder. Here I am feeding 3x4x8 feet large square bales. Hereford and Angus beef cattle on an early January evening, 2015. Taken from a GoPro that was strapped to the top of my head.
I had intentions on writing up a photo-book story of the restoration process of the John Deere Model A. I’m having a hard time finishing it, so I thought in the meantime, I’d just throw it up here. If there are any major spelling/grammar mistakes or things you’d like added, please use the comments field below. I’ll add some photos later. Click “Continue Reading” below for the full story.
Having spent so much time restoring the John Deere A, I tried to use it for a few little tasks around the farm. Here’s a video of it harrowing a pasture and hauling some half ton alfalfa bales. Also included is a few photos of the restoration process.
This year I’ve decided to once again do a photo journal. However, unlike previous attempts, I am only going to take one photo a day, and upload the entire month as a single post, instead of a post every day. These photos are just that–a journal. They are not meant to be glamourous or overly beautiful. They are meant to show aspects of my day. Every day.
I was recently looking through the videos I had on my phone, and noticed this video that I shot earlier in the summer. Since it’s so cold outside right now, I thought a little touch of a beautiful summer evening would be nice. Loading hay with the John Deere 3020 and pulling it with the John Deere B.
