The first picture in the last row is a manure storage tank ,  they haul the liquid manure to the field with semis then run a drag line in the field.   The last picture is a hunting blind .  I see hundreds of them every fall.

Thanks for the pictures! How many acres total, do you soil sample/map in Minnesota?

today it felt like a 3 ring circus . The farmer I was soil sampling for was also chopping corn silage and had the custom manure hauler, applying manure too. All in the same 200 acre farm...here are some pics

That cooperatives 10 rows of corn and can also cut corn with way, it does not have to follow the rows.

This farmer runs a lot of acres and milks many cows.

they claim it yields more tons per acre on corn silage yield more bushels per acre too, and has a lot less weed issues...
