Good Morning


From rainy, green Northview. The guys are still bogged down fixing the John Deere (it has had its name taken in vain a time or two I can tell you.) Of course it had to break way up in the field in a unmovable manner so they have to trek back there about twenty times a day between trips for more and more parts and more and more tools to fix the ever extending field of damage caused by a big pin breaking loose at the transmission pump. (Oh, how I love hydraulic transmissions.)

Becky's old show cow, Lemonade had a heifer yesterday, a big 'un too, so she is happy. We need to do a major heifer shuffle so we have room for new babies. Got six I would like to turn out with the milk cows to free up a pen for two shorties and two Jerseys.

What Sudex they have managed to plant between the rain and the breakdowns is up. Yay.

Good luck with the John Deere.

One good thing about The Long Green Line is the ready parts availability, but of course the bad thing is that you have to pay for that privilege.

I wish you all luck with the JD. Our JD dealer's favorite line is "we can have that for you next week" when it comes to parts, but they are right on top of it if you owe them $1.25.....

Becky, I like her too.

Linda, same here!It is so good to see the seeds sprouting and know that things are getting a move on out in the fields

Jeffro, ain't that the truth!! The guys went for a used pump off a wreck because the new one was eight hundred bucks. There are bad things being said, such as junk deere etc.

Jeff, that is pretty much true and this will probably be the first and last green tractor here. They all break, red, green, grey or blue, but when it comes down to the fixing, dang, there is a big difference in price and difficulty of the challenge. This thing has something like a permaclutch or some such thing. BIG job to work on every inch of the way.
