Just got a ton of rain and Hail.
Looks like some of my corn is running down the ditch.



Hate to hear that Ducky. We got storms again today too, heavy downpour, but missed the hail that hit near us. Put the nail in the coffin for planting the next 3 or more days. 40 & 50% chance of rain throughout this week here.

I would ask "When will it ever end", but I'm afraid to, as when it ends, it may turn dry as a bone. Hunker down Ducky!

Dan i hope the sun shines soon for you been rainy here all day with over 30% for the next 4 days. But watch out when it stops may be long summer. I was raised in country store and here people who worked for FARMERS make the same comment years ago, Never did understand where the food was to come from. Hope things smooth out soon, Sure do like my MILK.

Oh man do I too! And is it possible to eat pancakes WITHOUT milk? LOL Seems milk is the only thing that works to drink while eating pancakes.

Corn is ALL planted! :dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana:

Cutting hay next. BIL meangreen is cutting the hay on his place as I type. He LOVES driving our bigger tractors! I'll get started on the other 35 acres in a few. Josh is off today, so won't get it all cut today. Have 2 sick cows to tend also.

Glad you've got the corn planted and are cutting hay.Here it's very wet and very few farmers are able to put anything in yet.Heard on the news just a few moments about how some farmers aren't just worried about losing there homes to flooding but also worried about losing there farms etc: due to not being able to get crops in and not get hay cut etc: its not good in places here in Manitoba.Larry

Hate to hear it Larry. Lots of folks down in Louisiana may not get a crop in the ground either due to the flooding, both natural & man made due to blowing the levees.
Almost got one field cut, then had a mishap. My hand must have hit the quadrant control & lifted the 3pt arms. I turned & it snapped off the PTO stub coming out of the tractor. Good news is the stub slides right out to change it from 540 to 1000rpm. I'll pull the stub out of the 2705 & put in it in the morning. Destroyed the pto shaft shield, so cut the bad section out with a torch. Worthington Ag has the 540 stub shaft, & ordered it online this afternoon. $258 delivered. They cut the price $41 too. Figure the shaft would be $500 plus new....this is a used one I bought.

Well, swapped the PTO shafts, then found another MAJOR problem. When I muck something up, I do it right! The CV joint just off the PTO shaft....I busted the center section. Not a serviceable part & the thing costs $1,060.00!!!!!! Got it coming tomorrow. Got my hay all cut down though, as my neighbor up the road has the identical discbine & got hold of him at work & he said no problem, that I could borrow the shaft. Hay all cut & got his shaft back on his machine ...... safe & sound! LOL
Now if I can get it all rolled without tearing up the roll baler!

Good luck on the hay. Sounds like you were on a 'bender' too.

Sorry to hear of expensive breakdowns Daniel. Thank goodness for kind neighbors with the same equipment to borrow parts. Sure hope everything else goes smoothly.
