    More beef bashing.

    Farming is too easy of a target, >1% of the population work as farmers. All this carbon stuff is money and power. Airline companies have lots of both, livestock farmers...? Also think from the govs point of view, airlines bring in far more tax money than farms do...

    I've seen a lot of people recently complaining about the lack of insects due to intensive farming in recent years. However, every night im out with the LEDs on i cant get out of the cab without hundreds of the damned things buzzing into my face and inevitably into my cab. I can provide a picture...

    Keverneland disc coulter

    Removing stubborn dirt from wheels

    I wash it regularly. This happened over winter when dad was feeding the cattle with it and I didn't use it. Don't think the paint is stained as I can wipe it away with a lot of elbow grease. I should mention the tfr is diluted 100:1. Dont want to take the paint off. Is it safe to use a more...

    Removing stubborn dirt from wheels

    2019 case maxxum. Wheels look like this. Have tried preasure washing, tfr, degreaser. Nothing will shift the dirt. Only thing that seems to work is rubbing the same spot for a long long time till eventually it rubs off. Is there a way to get this dirt off or is my tractor going to have brown...
