Yes I sure can! They will come steady to fast, but won't be as all consuming of my time like silage time is. Those smaller jobs sure stack up when you're doing major things don't they!

Daniel, do you think you got an increase in your silage with the new relined pit? It sounds like you had a successful year but with a lot of extra work to get the pit set up.

If you mean increased capacity, I'd have to say yes. This pit's crown is at least 3' higher now than if it hadn't been redone. We lost area on the sides, but the increased height more than made up for it. We should see a marked increase in quality of the silage, especially that alongside the walls.
As to the extra work...I would love to start rebuilding the small pit that is empty. If I could, I'd start it tomorrow! I love the renewed pit!
