With my folks gone the neighbor boy is doing chores. He called yesterday morning, said the barn cleaner & silo unloader wouldn't go. With -10 temps things were just a little sluggish. My brother milks Holsteins on the home farm. The stalls are smaller in this barn so my dad bought some jerseys. Some cow pics for Kurt!

Agri your old IH spreader is still in pretty good shape for its age, understand the could the worst thing to always go wrong on a day like that is the barn cleaner chain breaks, understand the jerseys in a barn like that but they can be mean little ----- - at least the bulls are, always had holsteins.

Eric,
I love the smell of dairy cows and the manure too. I still enjoy hauling manure that way today. Thanks for the great photos. Please post more as time allows. Kow Farmer Kurt

Eric,

That certainly brings back memories. Mostly of lying on my back on the snow fixing the apron chain if it wasn't in good shape.

I always figured machinery was pretty dependable down to about zero. Below that it was either the barn cleaner, manure spreader or silo unloader that would possibly cause some grief. Hopefully not all at once.

It sure is nice to see that small herd of Jerseys. Thanks for posting these pictures. Don

Bruce Great pics! Milk price is ok here. My brother said its $22 with the Holsteins. He Thought dad was at $26 with the components for his jerseys. I have heard if you can milk cows in Canada it's a good deal.

Don't know if is any better or worse really. Takes a generation to buy and pay for milk quota , and as I was the first generation , it has been some tough sledding. Last month my milk brought $1.10 per litre @ 5.72bf 4.32pt. Not bragging , not crying , just saying as it is.I really liked seeing your Jersey cows, and Case tractors!! Bruce.

Ahhh, does that ever bring back memories. Chains are usually froze down and waters need thawing out, Rod.

I can"t resist this post...yes I remember those days before skid loaders when all we had was a small window to aim at. I remember it was hard work with the manure packed in like concrete. I hope my little 10 year old brother(sitting on a bale of straw) learned something while watching me!

I thought we went into the 20th century when Dad bought a Badger barn cleaner to empty out the gutters.

Hey Chuck do you remember when the Minister from Garden Plain came over for Sunday dinner and Dad took him on a tour of the Dairy Barn? He slipped and stuck one of his good shoes right down into the middle of the gutter! I laughed out loud and you should have seen the looks I got. It turned out OK because the minister laughed too!

Well since Bro Pastor John is not going to pipe in, you will have to take my version of doing this job. When the bull pen got3feet thick ,at 0* I was tasked with using only a pitch fork, and pitching it out of a 2"by2" window. Yes I was height disadvantaged until I was 12. That auger would have been a lifesaver for me. It was not always that bad,we got to clean the manure out of the shed with the Super M with a loader mounted to her. Dad warned us not to spread manure any faster than second gear.Yeah right ,like I was going go that slow! Catching a slug of cow sh!t from the spreader in third gear ! Second gear would be just fine after that experience, Feel free to add to this Pastor John.
