Yesterday on the way from N.C. to IN., my family and I had a chance to stop by Daniel and Teresa's farm in KY.. They welcomed in by meeting us at the truck. Daniel and Teresa walked and talked us all around the dairy operation, my girls had never been on a dairy farm. they have a beautiful place and are wonderful people to spend time with. Their hospitality was more then you could ever have hoped for. During our visit, "meangreen" BIL Fred, came down and we got to visit with him also, very nice guy. Finally I got to see the real herd that I have envied over on the net for months. The first building we went to was the Calf barn, fab shop. The A/C 720 was sitting , wow what a nice tractor, he also had a Case220, I think, sitting there that he had been workimd on. The next building had several beautiful restored and original GT's inside, 1 nice Bushhog T-63 in it's work clothes, a nicely restored Unico, sorry I don't remember the model number, a very nice restored Bush Hog JB1 with a 2 cyl. Wisconsin engine in it. The next building had a very Original JB1 and what I thought was a M/F 16, actually it's a very nice modified 1650 with M/F 14 hood on it and had, I think Daniel said a 20 hp engine in it. Went to the next barn and there before was the "BIG HOG", Daniel's Kubota powered JB1, man what a very nice customized tractor. Daniel fired her up for me and I drooled all over myself when that diesel came to life. His G4200 was also in that same shed. We walke over to his newest building, and there set the 1850 M/F with his home built FEL, the loader looked as if it had been factory built, and was looking great in it's work clothes, including cow manure on the tires and loader. Daniel said he would be up to his eye in cow crap, if not for that great GT. We walked and talked all over the farm, seeing all over Daniel's projects, including the rebuilt silage pits that he has been working on in the last few days.

We had a GREAT time with Daniel and Teresa, and look forward to visiting them again..THANK You both for the warm Welcome and Hospitality you showed my family and me. The girls will remember bottle feeding the calves forever. I for one will treasure the visit and the kitchen table talk late into the evening.

Thanks Again Daniel and Teresa,

Brian, Joey, Briley and Bailey:wave:

BTW, I can't get my picturesto download from my phone:confuse:, maybe Daniel will post some later.

Brian, thanks for the wonderful narrative of your visit. I would love to meet all of you guys some day. Sounds like a great time was had and the eyeballs got a workout. I'm sure the girls loved feeding the calves. Thanks for sharing.

If we had all the ingredients (like we thought we did) for homemade ice cream, it would have been even better! But if Brian could have stopped by at 6am tomorrow, that would have been nice....the 40 yards of concrete begins arriving before sun-up! LOL

Sounds great Brian. I haven't met any dairy farmers yet who weren't decent, nice folks. Good for you. The way you two post, it could only be a great occasion.
