As most of you know I grew up on a cow farm and did work on it as a kid and teen. I basically mastered all of the art of caring for cows and doctoring cows and driving tractors and driving trucks and doing watering of plants and four wheelers and hay bales and not horses. ASK ME ANYTHING IN THIS THREAD ABOUT THAT STUFF IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT IT!

yes. a highlight of the day was being able to pull in a non-country/christian/top 40 radio station out of wichita or OKC. if you did that you basically just rocked all day.

Two part question:
1) Who is better Case IH or John Deere?
2) Will I really get caught using red diesel for my non-farming needs?

Tell me about crop insurance and whether it's actually true that farmers can get paid for not planting crops, cause I am just baffled by this.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.
