    Just a slideshow to music of what goes on during spring on the farm that I work at. I broke my video camera so I need to look at getting another one.

    Not the song I wanted but it's all I had for the time being, probably change it later.

    The farm is owned by an older gentleman who hires another guy to manage it. There is 5-6 of us that work there total, 3 of us full-time and the others part time or just when things get busy. Have around 400 head of beef, about 2300 acres and 3 different "farms" where we have cattle. Corn, beans, wheat, and hay is what we grow.
    My parents both grew up on dairy farms but neither continued with them, both farms were sold 25ish years ago. So I have to settle for working for someone else.

    We are still north of Morris by a ways. And we got all the rain, around 3" from about 10pm on thursday to around 8pm last night. I finally got power back after a little over 19hrs.
    I forgot you can embed video's on this site, thanks!
    Neither the Chevy or the Ford had any trouble durring the spring. :D

    :gunsfiring: lol. It's been a good truck so far, getting hit by lightning helped it I think.

    Nice equipment and pics. You gotta love green paint. I love the pic of the Deere at night with the corn planter, that 2k option for the HID lights is worth every penny.

    The 8330 on the planter doesn't have the nice lights on it. The lights off the back light up the planter fine but the ones in front arn't bright enough to see where your going at night. So we never planted much after dark, getting nicer lights for the front of it before fall. It's our cart tractor so it would be nice to be able to see while trying to keep up with the combine and semi.

    I've taken one photography course about 5ish years ago when digital stuff was pretty new.
    I'll be at the fair some, have friends that have beef there so I'll be wondering around. We arn't showing this year but my boss has showed in the past so maybe he will want to try it again next year.

    I did some snooping on your youtube and watched the suzuki video, thats awesome. Too bad you dont live closer or I could show you how to do some wheelies with my honda lol. tymusic

    What kind of camera are you using on the helmet? Is it just a normal one duct taped or do you actually have a proper one? I want to make/get one one to watch videos in the winter and remember going fast in the summer, kind of like watching plow videos in summer lol. Nice video.

    The 'zuki is quite a bit of fun. It needs better shocks though. I'm debating weather to dump $1200 into it for tripple rate fronts and my stock rear modded into a dual rate. Or get rid of the atv and get a mx built yfz for a little more money.

    The camera on my helmet is a Vio Pov 1.http://www.vio-pov.com/products/pov_1.php
    I've messed with it some on the atv and snowmobiles and made a plowing video with it also. I need to make some more mounts for it to put on the farm equipment.

    Sweet vid, not a big fan of the music, but am a fan of the green equipment.
