    Repost FB - Brandon Alberts - "All, I am new to this group in the last few days but have already seen a lot of you struggling with grain bin sump plugging. I have had a lot of the same issues and a few years ago retrofitted the Bin SumpPRO by Leading Edge Industries and have not had any issues since. I have nothing to gain here, just posting this to hopefully help you save some headaches. Most importantly if this post helps save one life it will be worth it."

    "When I was a 4-H kid, our leader introduced us to range management, which at the time was mostly plant identification. I don't think he understood the science behind all of it, but he'd been through the 1930s and knew how tough it was back in those years. He knew if you left some grass there would always be grass. In the dry years it would carry him through."

    Here's an interesting REPOST from Linked In
    Jim Gerrish says, "Here is an example of hay cost on irrigated land ($128/acre) plus paying $90/acre land rent.
    That kicks the cost up to $170/ton.
    Then you have to feed it out which we typically charge at $15/ton.
    $185/ton feeds 60 cows for one day allowing for 10% waste.
    That is a little over $3/cow per day. This why feeding hay in a commercial cow-calf operation for more than 30-45 days is almost never profitable."

    In this article is this quote: 'We have no evidence of wolves in that area. That doesn't mean they are not there,' Black said.
    This is completely untrue. There are wolves in that area. A Colorado cattlemen's group wrote a letter on behalf of a rancher in Meeker who lost more than a few 600-pound heifers to wolves and he is fighting to be compensated for his loss.

    "Tractor: a powerful motor vehicle with large rear wheels, used chiefly on farms for hauling equipment and trailers"
    Clayton Lind an Agriculture Media Specialist - Vocal Defender of Farmers and Ranchers wrote "Yes, a powerful motor vehicle. But also one of the primary reasons we all don't have to work for our food everyday.
    To anyone who blames tractors and diesel engines for all their climate problems should probably just stop and appreciate the ease of life they have created for the first world.
    Thank you diesel engines for keeping the world turning every single day while the world berates you. You ain't perfect but you get the job done, probably cleaner then most people think too."

    Have you heard of Pasturebird?
    They went live from the farm to bring the most radical transparency in the entire poultry industry. This isn't a marketing video or photoshoot, this is a real, raw, and honest look into how their birds live day in and day out. Watch as they peck, scratch, and forage for grasses, bugs, seeds, worms, grains, flowers, weeds, and more. Each of their shaded coops are rotated to fresh pasture every single day so the birds are truly raised on fresh pasture.
