Changing a Waterbowl Diaphragm
Just some water-bowl maintenance, after we figured out about the frozen float, I probably could`ve just cleaned that up and not changed the diaphragm, oh well.

Swathing Oats 2018
Swathing some oats, wrecked a tube on the 2096 so then I had to wait for the 2090, swathed with it for a day before some hydraulic stuff wrecked under the cab, by then the 2096 was repaired. Now we only have one fully functioning tractor, the 2096. Only took four days to get `er all knocked down, probably only going full production for three of them.

Cutting Alfalfa Hay - MacDon A30D
Cutting some hay with our awesome new haybine, the A30D. It does such a great job at cutting and feeding the material through compared to our old MacDon 5000. Enjoy!

Feeding Cows with the Case 2090
In this video we feed cows with the Case 2090. It`s ok to use as a backup tractor, but I wouldn`t recommend using one of these as your main tractor. The 5240 had froze up diesel fuel so we put in new filters and plugged it in.

Baling Alfalfa Hay - Two Case IH 8480s
Baling some of the Alfalfa that I cut in previous videos. If you can just bale and don`t have to stop all the time, you can get a lot done. P.S. My Full bale sensor is broke so I make some pretty buggered up bales, one tipped over on it`s side the other day.

Chores with the 2090, 10 000 hours!
5240 is gone to get the head gasket repaired, so I used the 2090 for chores, rolled the old girl over 10 000 hours. Now we have a brand new tractor. Enjoy!

Top Dressing Slough Bales - Brandt VSF
Just the usual "while we have the processor running let`s feed some slough bales." They usually don`t like to eat them out of the feeders, so the chopping action of the processor and Alfalfa on top encourages them to eat it. Walk`round of the processor is coming soon.

Harvesting Oats 2018

Am I Crazy? - Using the Case 2090 for Chores
Well, I`m a silly enough person to pull the old 2090 out of the shop and use it for feeding heifers and rowing bales for the processor. After running this tractor for awhile I`ve figured out why we don`t use it for chores very often.

Chopping Barley with the Roller Mill
In this video I chop barley with the roller mill. This was extra barley we had leftover from spills at the grain bins. We don`t normally give our cattle grain but since we have some we`ll give it to them. Yes, I realize I didn`t have the safety cover on for the drive belt, I`ll put it on for next time.

Can`t Make Slough Hay Without Getting Stuck
Just 20 minutes left of cutting hay in that slough and then I would get to move to a new field. But, of course I got stuck in the slough. So we just pulled it out with the 5240.

Swathing Barley | Harvest 2017
We have finally begun swathing barley! It has ripened earlier than I thought it would. With some moisture it likely would have taken longer to ripen. Now for the editing software: I tried the Trial version of Wondershare Filmora today, and was I ever disappointed. I had trouble adding words to the bottom of the screen. No tutorials were in it, oh yeah and it had this gigantic watermark. So I finished the this video and then deleted that editing software. (I also complained to the company about their garbage program.) Now I am downloading iMovie for my computer. So basically, don`t waste your time with Wondershare Filmora.

Picking Stones 2018 | Case 2090
Picking some rock the old fashioned way with the 2090 and hopping out of the tractor 8794378989 times. I managed to leave it in gear 2 times while attempting to get out and leave the bucket down once while trying to drive away. I guess that`s what happens when things get repetitive.

Rambling & Cutting Sloughs for Burning and Feed
We can`t let some of this good quality slough hay go to waste! (Not shown `till end of video.) Honestly though folks if you are short on hay you need to cut sloughs, ask a grain farmer who has no cows if you can cut some sloughs for feed. Slough hay and grain was all they fed to cattle on the prairies 40 or 50 years ago. You MAKE BALES on some of this nice slough grass.

2018 Canadian Western Agribition
Highlights from the 2018 Canadian Western Agribition. My original plan was to keep this under 10 minutes, but that flew out the window because I had a fair bit of decent footage recorded that I wanted to share. If you get bored skip through it, doesn`t bother me.

Harvest 2017 Vlog #1 | Combinig and Hauling Grain
