    No, that's somewhere out West, though I can't recall where. You're right, it does resemble that area.

    We bailed round bails for years using a Ford 4100 diesel which is around 45 HP. He will be fine.

    Part of the country where I grew up averages 16" of rainfall/year. There was some corn silage put up - (more silage in that area now) - but it was mostly grazing and hay and winter wheat, small grains.

    Big acreage - if you only had 2 sections - you were just starting out. Mostly still that way with some increase in corn, soybean production based on greatly improved genetics and weather changes, too - more humidity and summer moisture.

    Still have cousins living there with cow-calf operations. All big rounds.

    That's where I bought a low-use, shedded JD 336 small square baler this past spring. There's still a few of them "hidin' out" in some farmer/rancher's shed in that part of the country.

    My wife can tell you EVERY mistake I've made in the past 25 years... she tells me EVERY chance she gets!!

    I worked with my uncle for 3 years near Benson and Morris, MN. He had a 320 acre farm raising edible beans; mostly pintos but some great whites, too. A dozen or so Angus and some pigs.

    Last place I baled hay before this year.. IIRC he had an old Massey.

    I think were at just over 13 inches already this year . Baled 500 big squares so far but humidity has meant nothing under 16% yet . Been very late getting dry enough for first cut so crop is enormous , 7-8 bales/acre but a bit tough and stalky !
