And if so have you put on the third row of teeth or thought about it? Hey Joel, is that a 258 New Holland rake? And if so have you put on the third row of teeth or thought about it?

I think the thing to do is get a new square baler (there were some nice models at the farm machinery show in Louisville in 2007) and probably follow that with a automatic stacker - as at least around here it is hard to get the manual labor that will work that hard and/or keep up - and when you do the expense on the labor makes it all but impractical.

They deserve it for stepping up like they have. All of them! Farms teach lessons that nothing or nowhere else can teach and it's good that they're learning! We'll all be praying for your friends speedy recovery! paintsmh, They say you grow out of the allergies and asthma, but as you get older it comes back. Sure hope not! Father of Five,

My allergies and asthma used to really nail me this time of year. Now I just get nasty head aches and sneeze perpetually with the occasional coughing fit. Now I just have to combat the constant fatigue from not being able to sleep well. Hope you get lots of hay. We were just ready to start haying and it hasnt stopped raining since dad got the first load baled. So we are trying to at least do some chopping. Not working so well at the moment.

We live in a rural town, surrounded by many farms... My boys attend a private school, and one of my third son\'s closest friends is a diary farmer. My boy LOVES going to his friends farm, and hanging out for the day... He LOVES helping his friend out with his chores! <em>(I <a>POSTED ABOUT THIS</a> a while ago!)</em> About a month ago, my friend\'s father herniated 5 spinal discs... He has been bed ridden for a while, and it kept getting worse. He finally had to go in for spinal surgery.. I had one disc herniate, and cannot even imagine what FIVE of them would be like... Anyway - the farm boys (ages 11 and 9) have been doing their chores, and doing their father\'s work on the farm too. My boys have gone over a couple of times to help, and I am pretty good friends with the wife... (She works outside the farm, and in a field closely related to my own) I have told them to call me anytime if they need any help... I was slated to come out and help with their first haying, but a neighboring farmer put in a whole day on his farm, and half days on this family\'s farm.. I just got home from work, and I was told that my middle boys (ages 12 and 11) are over at the farm helping out AS I TYPE THIS.. I love having my son be part (even just a small part) of helping out around a working family farm! I love your blog for that same reason!! Keep up the great work! David. Haying…
