Really Big Toys





HI MARTY,

ROSS SENT ME THIS, WE SEE HIM PLAYING WITH HIS BIG TOYS AT THE FARM.

THANKS MARTY AND ROSS

PS WALKING ON SPRINGFIELD IN FRONT OF HIS HOUSE I SEE HIS GRASS HIS GETTING LONG, MAYBE HE COULD ASK HIS WIFE TO CUT IT, BEFORE

THE SNOW FALLS.

Norm, this is what I was working on last week.

#1- Complete corn stock is chopped & blown into wagons & trucks.

#2- The chopped corn (silage) is dumped into cement bunkers

#3- Silage is pushed up in bunker to make a 16 foot pile

#4- Silage is compacted with an 8 wheel tractor to remove all the oxygen from the pile. It is then covered with thick plastic sheets where it ferments & is used all year to feed the dairy herd. It will last until the same time next year when harvest will start all over. Next job in about a week or 2 is combining the corn where just the kernels are harvested, dried & stored in steel silos. You should make time to come out & take a ride in the combine. Just amazing at what this thing can do. Ross

Thanks Normand & Ross
