Down to one poo wagon.  Josh's wagon lost the side of a rim.  The bead just broke out.  If we stopped to gather all the stuff needed to change out the wheel, it would have killed a lot of the afternoon.  So I just sent Josh on to scrape the lot & tend other things.  I'm hauling with my one wagon, and will get plenty out by end of the day to call the job done.  Was going to be a mid-afternoon finish, but I'll be hauling till feeding time now.

Took a few pics being I am in a better mood having finished the pit.  Here is our Houle lagoon pump/blender hooked to our MF2705.

And here's an overview of the pit.  About a foot or so still in there, but you need to leave some in there so the bacteria is alive & well when you start adding more fresh manure.  There is also some solids buildup in places, and I'm afraid in about 40 years or so it'll need to be removed.  Guess I don't have to worry about that!

The wagon with blowout....seen the tire was cut, so I just limped it the half mile down the road to the shop.  Can't hurt what is destroyed.  

 

Here is the tire:

And here is why she blew:

After feeding silage I used my MF1655D to place some 200lb molasses tubs.  Somehow they messed up my order for a pallet of twenty 125 pound tubs and brought just four #125 and three #200.  The big ones will hurt you messing with them by hand, but this little loader will place them easily into the concrete feeders.

I wanna borrow the poo cannon for the idiots that fly down the street with their music blaring. Especially the one gal in a convertible.

That pump will shoot poo a good 100', and likely fill a convertible in about 2 seconds!

Feels GREAT not having to wolf down breakfast only to shoot out the door to haul poo!   :dancingbanana:   Came a heavy rain this am, but just lasted 15 minutes or so.  Gonna go put another wheel/tire assembly on the poo wagon & weld up a few frame cracks.  Gonna be a much slower day....I hope.

Many here at the dairy are much more than rolling.  I've had tractors on every part of them, but the butt-pucker factor can reach extremes when you get to sliding!

So, how does your poo cleanup actually work? It appears to be a concrete trough going into the poo pond? Do you scrape it out of the barn and then into the pond?

I've seen old barn with big slits in the concrete floor and then they pump out from under it, jsut wondering how you do yours.

All pushed down, then over the ramp with a rubber 1/4 tire scraper on the back of a tired old MF175.
