    Hello everyone....Just signed up on this forum tonight. I am a grain farmer North East Saskatchewan...very familiar with lots of snow and wind. Have multiple 9' diameter by 250' grain bags full of oats in the field that you can't even see cause of the drifted snow. We've had a brutally cold winter thus far with a couple days of 60mph sustained wind with gusts up to 80mph (cat1 hurricane force), that made a real mess of things. Current snow removal equipment is a 7320 JD with a loader and a 10' Kirchner blade. Bought a "V" plow at an auction sale a couple years ago for a mere $5...just gotta get it mounted on something. Have a 9530T John Deere track tractor (475hp) that I'm considering mounting a 16'-18' Leon blade on in the future to deal with the seemingly longer than usual winters we have been experiencing........

    Looking forward to sharing stories and knowledge on snow removal (or whatever else) with the rest of you

    9' x 250' grain bag? Is that some sort of burlap sack stretching 250' long? Never heard of that.

    What kind of properties do you handle other than your own?

    They are another form of storing grain other than a grain bin. Invented in Canada but perfected in South America. They are pretty mainstream now.

    Yuengling is my last resort beer. If I can't find a microbrew, I will have a Yuengling. If they don't have Yuengling, I'll have Grey Goose and Sprite..... Or something non-alcoholic.
