Daniel, sorry but don't buy any of those tickets. I don't know what I'd do without the 'many adventures of Daniel, down on the farm'. Almost as good as Red Green.:bigrofl:

... But with more cows and less duct tape...


I used duct tape on 2 cows tonight! REALLY, I DID! I'll try & remember to take pics tomorrow. Antibiotics in the milk is a big no no, and if it gets in the tanker, the dairy farmer who did it pays for that tanker load. Simple paint sticks can let you down, as they can rub it off, or cover it with manure. Sop I use vinyl flag ribbon, like surveyors use. I lay about 18" of duct tape sticky side up, then tear off three pieces of flag about 10" long & stick to the tape. Then I simply wrap the tape around each cow leg & have a VERY visible warning NOT to put that treated milk into the tank. Stays on like armor! Easy to get off with a pocket knife when milk tests clean too. I still also use the paint stick, as more is better in this case. I go through lot of duct tape with cows. I also use it when tending to cow's hooves when trimming & treating for foot ailments. You will laugh at this. When the hoof needs medical treatment, I mix the needed medicine powder with salve, then I spread that mix onto a woman's Maxi-Pad, slip it between the hooves, then duct tape the entire foot. Works great! I guess I am a "Red Green of Dairy"! :bigrofl:

Found a pic I already had of a duct taped foot, maxi-pad/medicine underneath!

Now we have cows AND duct tape! What's next? Red Green will be mighty proud of you, Daniel.

Hey, a guy has to do what a guy has to do. I'm just wondering how this hoof rot cure works when it's wet out side? Seems like the Maxi-Pad could soak up a lot of water.

This time it's for severe heel warts, and the pad is pretty much full of the salve compound, sometimes even oozing out from under the tape, but yes, the best time to do any of this type cure is when it's dry weather

Your creativeness is impressive. I don't like working on foot ailments. Good way to get hurt.

The hoof trimmer I used to hire had the creativeness, so I can't take any credit on the Maxi pad/duct tape thing. As to good way to get hurt, I can take credit for building my own tilt table to work the cows over with. Electric over hydraulic, built from scrap steel.

Still have to be careful when chaining down those feet! But after tilting them over, they lose some ambition as to getting free.

Doug started this thread with a list of things waiting to be accomplished. I am going to try to get it back there somewhat. Here is a partial list of what I need to get done:

1. Change fluid and filter on LGT 165.
2. Install new front axle bushings on LGT 165.
3. Put temp spring on JD 68 drive idler and test trans.
4. Take idler off deck for JD 68 and lube, get new belt for it.
5. Get engine tins ready to install on GTV/16.
6. Install new oil pressure gauge on GTV/16.
7. Fix bead leak again on LGT 165 rear tire.
8. Install wheels on deck for Cub 108.
9, Finish handle assembly for the blade on the LGT 165.
10. Start rehab of mower deck for LGT 165.
11. Remove and send parts to Keith for 3-point on the LGT 165.
12.Remove existing lean-to and put up new 'tractor port'.
13. Put new rear struts on 1990 Nissan Mazima.
14. Install new front bushings on Maxima.
15. Install rear motor mount on Maxima.
16. Find and fix exhaust leak on Maxima.

That is just the beginning of my to-do list, thanks to working all spring and summer.
