John is out with the 4730 sprayer today putting WeatherMax on the double-crop soybeans (DCB).  He will return with some dicamba on most of them later in the week.  His scouting work yesterday led him to develop a plan of attack for DCB herbicides, and now he’s beginning to put that into action.

Brandon gave the Bush Hog a ‘tune up’ this morning… lubrication and blade-sharpening.  Now, he’s out testing how it works.

Brandon lubricates all the drivelines and U-joints, and then gives the blades a sharpening

Away he goes to test the bush hog’s newly sharpened blades on a nearby waterway.

The Knox County fair is going on this week, pigs and goats judged today, cattle tomorrow.  It’s usually hot during fair week, and it’s not unusual to get a rain.  In reality, the temps are backing off a bit this week, with highs in the 80s, not the 90s!  A noticeable difference.
