re: Someone tell me all you know about no-till in food plots - angus1838
I am by no means saying that plotspike isn't any good cause I have never tried it but the coating on the other seed brands are an innoculant which promotes growth for a better stand and yield in legumes. Basically it is like a fertilizer attached to the seed you can read about it [link=(http://www....

re: Farmers of the OB, have a question - angus1838
Wheat doesn't dry out your land the foliage actually helps retain it and if you think it's putting your beans behind schedule just pick them at about 18 percent moisture and have them dried. Or try a faster maturing variety. To the OP realistically shoot for 150 to 200 net per acre if you are wantin...

re: Any guys plant summer deer plots? And/or mineral sites - angus1838

re: I need the weed killer of all weed killers - angus1838

You can't go wrong with the 6105d it's a solid tractor. I have Ferguson and John deere and just unloaded a MCcormick. The john deere's have been more reliable than the Ferguson. The mccormick was a total lemon. If i had to chose right now with the new tractors out there I would seriously look at the...

re: Getting into the cattle business - angus1838
I think one of the best options right now is to buy young heifers and raise them to breeding age. You can buy small heifers cheaper than steers (400 to 600 pounds). Raise them to around 900 pounds breed them, and hang on for about 6 months after breeding, and sell as bred replacements. That is kind ...
