Don't know if SD will concur, but I put K02's on our trucks.  Our roads are absolute dogshit and they seem to do fairly well.

Tom,
Neat pic, thanks for posting that.  I like seeing old pics like that.  Who is the man standing next to the tractor.  Is that TomDad or Grandpa?
That is TomDad... Mom is downsizing she gave me boxes of old 35 mm slides that he took.  Talk about a time machine...

Fast forward 1975.... a proud TomDad in front of the new 80 x 24 silo with auto unloader. No more pitch forking by hand or loading from in ground pit (pix on bottom). Not sure when overhead bins were built but a couple years before the silo.

Concrete bunks installed at same time when TomDad got serious about feeding cattle.

This belongs in the shame yourself thread but here it goes...

Note the car parked by the house I was probably five or six and we got home from town and I wanted to pretend to drive so dad left me in the car with my sister in the back seat. 

 He was just about to the house, and I managed to get the manual shift out of park on the steering wheel... the car proceeded to roll down the hill and slam into the boxcar (behind the loading chute over TomDad shoulder  in the picture, see 2nd pix in prior post) totally crushing the back end.

Man was he pissed.  One of the worst spankings I ever got.  I remember running up to the yard and him getting in the car and pulling it back up to the house with gravel flying everywhere.

A little Wiscy humor since Holesteins seem to be a thing there. And the campus at Madison is like the best drinking campus out there.

My brother went out to the farm this weekend and helped transplant some rose bushes from KC.

He also completed a cat census and we are up to 20!

Not full time. Grandparents moved to town when they retired and no one lived there for about 15 years but my Uncle would still use the bathroom etc when he was around farming.

My dad is out there alot now and has done some minor repairs but the actual house has held up pretty well.

Farm update email from my dad. Looks like we are going to be Apple Barons.  :ROFL:

Logan helped me plant 6 new apple trees.  3 Pink Lady, Gale, Matsu, Winesap.  Automated drip tree watering system ordered, will water all the fruit trees when installed.  10 yrs and we should be producing well on these nice looking 5' trees.  (Half price at Wal-mart).  Farm yard grass looking good, treated with weed n feed.  Garden fine - potato crop looking good, blooming now.  Tomatoes slow growing - cool.  Needed a jacket this am.  Had 2 new angus bulls in coral, but Alvin Depe 4 miles East came by and took them home.  I'll get lucky some day.

My son had a bench made from the old fenders and parts.   A bonus huskguy plate in the pic too.

Tom, in the future please post the NSFW disclaimer on that hardcore farm porn for those of us at work or who are not prepared for the amount of farm horny it causes. That truck is a beast.
