Tractors are tuned, and ready. Manure fraq tank is sitting in the field, and boy are we ready. Yep, as long as the weather cooperates we plan on starting something next week, maybe a little tillage, most likely a little manure injecting, but it all depends on the sun, wind and the rain.
Curious what we are up to? Well in the next month or so, we expect to haul over 10 million gallons of manure on over 1000 acres of farm ground, through two different systems. One system will drag line manure directly from the dairy through up to four miles of hose, the other system will use a 10,000+ gallon fraq tank stationed in the field that will be filled with semi's driving between the dairy and the field.
All the above needs to be accomplished before we can finish our planting season. Only about 1/4 of our farm ground gets manure in the spring, so the farmers will have some fields to get started on while the manured fields dry out. Once all is said and done, we hope to have over 2300 acres of corn, and 400 acres of soybeans in the ground.
Everyone is getting excited and ready for the new year. Check back often for progress updates this spring.
