John Deere 730 in Deep Snow

If you make a path in the snow once it starts to melt, where the tracks are melts out a lot faster. Also, where possible, the use of the blade also assists in its melting. As you can see, it was very deep!

Flight Across the Snow

With the sun shining and winter only serving as a reminder as to how much more snow we are able to receive, I thought it would be fun to post a video of the DJI Phantom 3 drone lightly gliding across its glimmering beauty. As far as the experience is concerned, this comes as close to cruising across the fields on a snowmobile as I can get. The film was shot around the first of February, 2016.

Pushing Snow with Farm King and JD 4230

This year I purchased a snow blower to help keep the barnyard cleaned out.  The snow slides on the side of the barn to the point where it can’t slide anymore (builds up too much).  SO, with the snow blower I am able to keep it pushed out better.  It also lets me use the warmth of a cab tractor to push snow.

This video is a time lapse that I took with the GoPro. It’s not the greatest video because it got a lot of moisture over the outer housing, and I probably shouldn’t have made it record it so fast… But, it is still kind of cool to watch anyway.

New Years ride on the John Deere A and 630

Taking the tractors out for a nice winter stroll is a lot of fun–especially when you are able to take more than one out at a time!  Here’s a video I shot of the John Deere Model A and Model 630.  I was riding the A (same tractor that I restored), so the video mostly shows the 630.

October Through December 2012 Photo Journal

I finally got around to finishing the photo journal 2012.  As you may notice, there are many photos of me feeding cattle.  That’s because with the days as short as they were, my schedule basically consisted of going to work, coming home and feeding the cows, then getting home just in time for it to get dark.
