    Modular Homes - Good/Bad experiences... I am considering this pretty seriously...

    I will speak from our experience. We have a 4300 sq ft two story cape cod style house. There is no way to tell from the outside that it is a modular home. The house is solid as a rock. 2 x 6 outer walls, 9 ft ceilings, and almost every extra offered by the factory. It's almost 12 years old and...

    20' x 20' storage shed recommendations

    This is a thread I posted earlier this year. The company I worked with was great. You can go on their website and build your shed and it shows pricing. Really neat. Let me know if you want their contact info:

    Cattle- accounting - tax issue

    Don't need an accountant. IRS Schedue F is very easy. Also, if you purchased the supplies within the last 3 years, you could claim them on an amended return, Schedule X. There is no need to over complicate this. Just my 2 cents.

    FMC 5x5 Sidewinder auction score!!

    That is correct - you remove the shims to lower the tire. Also make sure the tire is at 35 PSI.

    Cattle- accounting - tax issue

    You don't need an LLC to deduct your operating expenses. The supplies you purchased can be deducted on IRS Schedule F. It is a very easy form to use. That's the way I have operated for many years.

    Tractor shed is up.

    I imagine you could pour a slab but I don't plan to. Raising the shed would be a daunting proposition.

    Tractor shed is up.

    3 ' rebars every 5' through the ground pieces, both inner and outer. Then 3' anchor screws that are adjacent and then bolted to the ground pieces. It is rated for 145 mph winds. If we get 145 mph winds, I've got a lot more to worry about.

    4k for site work, 12k for building. Shopped around and got a heck of a deal on the building from Carolina Carports. They had a 17% off sale that ended May 31. Only took 6 weeks to get it.

    Anyone else have an unusually large number of hummingbirds this year?

    Was sitting in the den today and a hummer came up to the window peeking in. He said "where are my feeders"? I had to put 2 feeders out.

    Tractor shed site finished. 4" of crusher run was rolled. It feels very firm. Area at front of site has 57's that were rolled. Also very firm. I think it will hold up well.

    I am in the process of getting a 48' x 36' tractor shed. Had a local company come out and prep the site yesterday. Took off top soil, built up and leveled the clay pad, and rolled it. Tomorrow, he will be topping it with 4" of crusher run and rolling that. Pics of progress so far:

    My order went in On Dec. 27. Got it yesterday. Hooked it up today. It's a beast. Took a couple of swipes in the field next to the house that has broom straw. Hit a rock that sparked and started a fire. I had to jump off and stomp out the fire. That was the end of hogging today. Not the...

    Best one yet!

    Those are the best for working around the farm. Great for working with barbed wire, cutting trees, handling brush, grabbing calves, etc. They actually last a long time. Only issue i have with them is the seams sometimes come apart. Simply get out a needle and use dental floss to sew it back up.

    Did you know that your cows are out? (Or sheep, or horses, or...)

    When I went up to my front gate this morning, 6 of our cows were standing in the field across the road. I opened the gate and walked around behind them. Took a few minutes, but they walked in. Spent the rest of the day walking the fence to find where they got out. Of course, the hole was...

    Error correction

    I always throw an old blanket on the rope or chain, about halfway up. This keeps the rope/chain form coming back at you if it should break. A snapping rope/chain will hurt you.

    Anyone had a lumbar fusion?

    Had mine done in 2004. The worst part was where they had to cut through the muscle to get to the spine. Took a few weeks for the muscle to heal. Other than that, it went fine. Still have an occasional ache but now I'm able to do most chores.

    Things You Find In The Woods *POST YOUR PIX*

    I believe it was a 32 ford Model T. Found it when I was walking in the back of the farm looking for a cow. My wife, who had grown up on the farm, did not know it was there.

    Weird Stuff in Tree

    Is black knot fungus harmful? While mature trees can handle the fungus, those with weak branches or the trees that are younger cannot, and the disease can lead to tree death. Black knot fungus is also dangerous because of how quickly it can spread

    Is a "hybrid" barbed wire fence more friendly to wildlife?

    Oddly enough, we had a young deer get caught in a woven wire fence yesterday. By the time I saw it, it was already dead. So, barbs were not an issue.
