Glad you are getting that thing beat into submission

 

We did use generous amounts of the BFH, I can assure you of that!

Glad you got things going on chopper & bull in submission. I could picture you challenging that bull lol I've seen you on many occasion angrier then a bull and definitely capable of doing far more damage!!

They get 2 drops a day, one early at opening time, other around noon.  No call this morning, so just gotta hope hard that it comes in at noon.

This is not good....no bearing again today, and so far they don't know why, but they are looking into it this afternoon.  We've lost the entire week of chopping.  We should have most of a large silage pit full.  :(

Got home with the bearing at 10:30 this morning, and chopping at 12:30!  Came in for a drink, now back to packing.  Great to be back at it......hot & humid, but still glad.

Chopped till chore time & chopper is working like new again.  Got a lot of silage in the pit in a short time.  Normally tomorrow is my day off, but I'll get to sleep in a while longer, then I'll get out & we'll chop a while.  I can haul & pack while Josh is milking.  We'll cut off mid-afternoon so it won't be that bad, and I'll have part of the day off.  Today has been super busy.  Between packing loads, I've gotten in 2 new baby calves & their momma's, and moved some heifers out of the barns.  Now I gotta milk, so I'll be tired tonight....already am!

The 'Little Devil' on my left shoulder was hoping that you would get far enough behind that you would have to re-schedule the plow day so I could attend  :D :D :D

 

However, the 'Little Angel' on the right shoulder prevailed, so I'm happy to see you are up and running.
