All mowing done.  Got all the manure equipment hooked to tractors, everything serviced, tires aired up, and ready to go.  Stirred the poo some today, and will finish mixing it up & start hauling before noon tomorrow.  Productive day with NO surprises!   Scares me when things go smooth!  :rolling:

Stirring the Poo just doesn't sound like the best job in the world. Tell me that you weren't using a canoe paddle while floating in the canoe on the lagoon. :poke:  :D

It's gravy compared to one chore I had to do this morning.  One cow never cleaned after calving....retained placenta.  3 days make for some stout aroma when you have to remove it.  Put on an arm length plastic glove & start pulling slowly.  All came out fine, but man, there are much better jobs to be done around here for sure!  And she would have to swing her stub tail & sling some VERY smelly liquids in my face!  Now tell me....doesn't stirring poo sound better now?   :smilewink:

I had a picture of Daniel out there next to the poo pit with an outboard motor with a long shaft on it like an overgrown kitchen aid.

No guys, I use one of these.  Arthritis makes it tough, but I get the job done!

Well, just a few days ago, Josh left a gate open unattended for just a couple minutes thinking he had time before the cows found it open.  WRONG!  Two cows gave the pit a stirring "swim style".

Tonight I figured it a good time to track down my laundry drain issue.  Had to do some digging in a few spots to track the end of the PVC drain pipe where it joins the sewer lateral line.  I just joined it in a crude way to an old steel pipe I laid years ago.  Blockage down the steel pipe, likely due to rough rusty walls.  Water hose with water on shoved down the pipe cleared it out, but it's time to change it all to PVC as soon as I can before winter arrives.  The old steel pipe coming out the laundry room needs to be ripped out & replaced with PVC as well.  Smooth plastic beats the heck out of steel for resisting clogs.  

  I guess I'm just in a "poo frame of mind", first the poo pit, now drains to my sewer!  :rolling:
