Just finished installing a Deweze bale bed on a newer pickup. This bed is able to pick up hay bales and set it on the bed so we can haul it out and feed it to cattle on wheat.

The hay provides dry matter to a stomach full of very rich and wet wheat feed.
Working 330 head of cattle. They showed up throughout the night. Two loads out of Wyoming and one out of Colorado. All three drove through a snow storm that was associated with the powerful cold front that also arrived that night dropping temperatures from 88 to the 40s. This cold air mass is now expected to collide with hurricane Sandy.
Harvest is winding down.

Putting cattle out to graze wheat. It's a t-bone factory. That's the farm in the background.

Finished mile of fence.
This is what happens when I'm blogging and the GPS kicks off while I'm planting beans. Notice the row command on our planter eliminates overlap by shutting rows off. Except for row seven. The clutch went out on that row.

Warning! These pictures will cause your mouth to water! Took the family out to the feedyard by Dodge City to look at our fat cattle.
