No accidents on my end but my gf actually grew up on a farm and has some stories.... Her older brother was riding one and thought the single strand gate was down, ended up hitting a line of barbwire across his chest at 20 mph.



Did that cut him in haft or at the very least, break some ribs?

I dont think he broke anything but the barb wire tore up his chest pretty good and he had to get alot of stitches.

I have been entrusted with a key to the farmhouse and also with the task of feeding the cats when I go hunting out there next weekend.

My dad has been in town the last couple of weeks and won't be out there again for a couple of weeks so he is getting antzy about how the cats are doing. Big time responsibility for me, really hoping I don't screw it up and buy 2% milk or something stupid like that.

may as well get them cream or half and half since you're too lazy to go get the cheap milk.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

Protip: walk away. This isn’t something you want to find out more about. Spend time with your families instead.

There are crazy triangle shaped ones on mtb trails that you have to ride over when the trail crosses through a fence

Those are called cow catchers.  Similar, but not the same.

When I brought the food out I really got the big picture of what my dad has accomplished with his cat breeding program. Two orange cats, two white cats, one black cat and one gray cat.

Just a rainbow of cats out here (Some of them ran off before I could grab a picture)

Ran my first solo CAFO this morning. 1 pitcher of kibble to garage and 1 to the barn.

Beautiful sunrise but those dam windmills ruined the view and now I'm angry at Obama all over again!

My uncle and cousin were doing actual farm work while I was chasing birds. Here they are laying out a roll of hay for the cows to eat.

Have you ever stopped in Grinnell?  There is a butcher shop that makes the best beef jerky I have ever ate.  Last time I was there was in the early '80's, so may not be around anymore.  It would be worth checking out if your going by on I-70.
Hot time in Kat town tonight.

Also, detour up to Lucas and go to this place https://www.brantsmarket.com/ .

Grab some of their ring bologna and smoked sausage.  You won't be disappointed.

Man my grandpa hated the big rolls of hay.

He always thought that Hay got wasted because the cows trampled it.  He did small bales for years, until he was 75 or so and finally sold off the cows.
