Feeding with the 630, December 15 2019

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.

The Story of the A

John Deere Model AI 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.

 

Photo Journal Jan 2012

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.

 

Wintertime Feeding Cattle

Even though we sold the dairy a few years ago, we still have a few beef cattle.  It’s kind of fun feeding them when dad isn’t doing it.  Here’s a few random photos of our cattle feeding experiences.
