Clearing The Way HLA has a full line-up of blades suitable for equipment from 20 HP right up to 200 HP. "From sidewalks to estates to commercial clearing we have a blade that will fit your needs," confidently states Paul Horst of HLA. "At HLA we know snow; our product line includes angle blades, bucket mount pushers, v-blades and our versatile SnowWings." New additions to our team are the High Volume Snow Buckets and a new line of Scatter Shot Broadcast Spreaders.

Scatter Shot— Take Aim at Ice HLA makes it easy for professionals with the introduction of the Scatter Shot. These broadcast spreaders make short work of your spreading tasks when there's snow on the ground and when there's not. Made of durable galvanized steel, the Scatter Shot can handle what it dishes out. From sand to salt, the internal agitators prevent the material from clumping or building up on the walls — ensuring you get the most out of every load. Hydraulic powered models feature easy to use self-loading hoppers. These tilt similar to a bucket allowing material to be scooped directly into the hopper.

With a capacity of one and a half yards, the HS200 has you covered. The Double Shot combines two of our rugged hoppers onto a single frame providing twice the bang for the buck.

Snow Wing— Actuator Tough One of the most unique features of the HLA SnowWing is its rotary actuated endplates. This ingenious patented system allows the operator to independently control the endplates in a full 180 degree rotation. Now you can convert your blade from box to angle and add an extra 6 feet of clearing width.

Goodbye Tire Damage All blades that angle and have rotating endplates have potential to cause tire damage, and that’s why HLA developed our Patented Tire Protection System. This adjustable system automatically rotates the endplates away from the tire if there is the potential for collision.

Call 1-866-567-4162 to let HLA Snow help you clear the way. The HS100 is a single hopper broadcast spreader with a half yard capacity. Ideal for skid steers and small tractors, the HS100 runs off hydraulic or PTO power. Capable of spreading up to 40 feet the HS100 can be easily adapted to sidewalks with the addition of an optional sidewalk shield that will limit the spread to 3 feet. October 2012 |

The Need for Grain Moisture Testers in the Agricultural Industry


–by Carrie Matola, AgraTronix

This season’s precious grain harvest needs to be checked for moisture content before it can be sold for a profit, as every farmer knows. Moisture has the ability to cripple a whole year’s worth of harvest if it is not checked from time to time. In fact, ignoring such a critical issue can actually lead to:


Additional costs if the harvested grain is wetter than is acceptable and needs to be dried before it can be sold.

Loss of value for dried grain since it has to be sold for less than its marketable value.

Spoiling the grain if it happens to be wet and is stored under low temperatures or drying bins.

Needless to say, a grain moisture tester is invaluable when it comes to preserving the value of your crop and ensuring that it sells for what it is worth.

How to Use your Grain Tester Before checking your grain for moisture content, first make sure that your moisture analyzer is in good working order. In other words, ensure that the battery is working, charged and ready to go.


Remember, a tester with a faulty battery will show inaccurate readings. This is not something that you can afford to

happen. A farmer can end up selling his grain for less than half what it was actually worth because his grain tester shows that the moisture content is through the roof. A battery that is low in power will operate no differently so make sure that you have it replaced once a year. Also make sure that you take the battery out when the device isn’t in use. Attempting to test your grain’s moisture content before it has even been harvested will not give you accurate results. Therefore it is best that you sample shelled grain that has already been harvested. In order to cover a wider area, pick the grain from several plants and mix them together in a container before testing it for moisture. Make sure that you get at least three readings for an accurate estimate. Add three or four more points to the reading and you are good to go. Getting Accurate Readings with Elevator Testing If you are still not satisfied with your readings you can always compare them to your grain elevator or mill’s readings. For this you will need to check your grain samples a total of three times with your grain tester for an approximate reading. Do the same with the elevator or mill tester. Comparing samples from an elevator and portable tester is efficient since it will provide you grain samples with

varying levels of moisture content. Make sure that the containers you keep the grain in before testing is sealed tight especially if you want to take the samples home and throw them back in the elevator afterwards. Your tester needs to be checked out if both of the readings differ by more than 1.0 points. This estimate is for dry grain. The average difference for wet grain should not be more than 1.5 points. You can have your chosen grain tester analyzed by a professional service provider on an annual basis in order to ensure that it guarantees accurate readings. Your harvest (and not to mention your profit margin) depends on it. Test 5 to 10 more samples for good measure for a short term alternative. Go with the Flow Better yet, sample the grain when it is being unloaded from a vehicle. How do you do that? Collect samples in a bucket every 50 bushels or so. When the vehicle is emptied out, mix the grain in the bucket thoroughly. After that, take out a specific amount for the moisture test. Remember, it is important that you mix the grain before scooping out a sample to be tested. The moisture content might differ throughout. In other words, taking off a few inches off the top without mixing it will not continued on page A9

Types of Portable Grain Moisture Testers The management of moisture content takes precedence when it comes to perishable crops like grain. In other words, state of the art equipment is necessary when it comes to getting readings that are accurate especially during the wet season. Shown at the top left hand of this page are devices from Agtronix.

1. 08125 MT- PRO™ Portable Grain Moisture Tester: This particular grain tester from AgraTronix is great for nighttime tests since it comes with a backlit display. It also boasts of a Multilanguage display (languages vary from English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Swedish and Portuguese) while its high frequency circuit guarantees accuracy. 2. 09110 Portable Grain Kit - MT-PRO™ with Grain Scale: Of course, you can settle for this portable grain kit if you want to go all out. The MT-PRO™ kit comes complete with a hanging grain weight scale, MT-PRO™ grain moisture tester, operating manual as well as a storage case for easy transport. The 15.5 inch long hanging grain weight scale in particular is designed to help you measure the percentage of moisture in samples of grain as well as the lbs. per bushel. It has a test range 15 to 70 lbs. per bushel and 20 to 90 kg per hectoliters.

3. 08155 MT-16™ Portable Grain Moisture Tester: The MT-16™ grain tester is designed for measuring 16 varieties of seeds and grains in both dried as well as the stored variety. The device is controlled by a microprocessor that requires no additional conversions for moisture readings. Its moisture range for corn is anywhere between 5 to 40% and 5 to 35% for other types of grains.

»what’s new Square balers from case add capacity, efficiency and functional, modern style to haying operations It’s not often that a familiar silhouette changes so dramatically: Case IH has redesigned the new LB4 Series large square baler for both style and function. The new design changes encompass both internal and external changes that make the new LB4 series large square balers significantly more efficient than previous models. “We are very excited about the performance of this new baler series,” says Brett DeVries, Case IH Hay and Forage Marketing Manager. DeVries continued: “The goal is to help producers maximize short baling windows. The new design has increased capacity by as much as 20 percent.” Inside, the LB4 Series balers feature a new, high-inertia flywheel that is 19 percent larger than previous models and results in improved performance in uneven windrows. The new, high-capacity pickup features a roller windguard, feedassist roller and faster rpm’s to maximize crop flow into the baler. The gearbox runs at an astonishing 48 strokes per minute to put crop through the machine quicker and more efficiently. “The high-speed baling means producers can get more done in a day without compromising bale density or shape,” says DeVries. As for the sleek new look? The new curved design allows the baler to shed debris more easily. “Case IH has always had an industry-leading double knotter assembly. The reliable, heavy-duty direct-drive knotters provide outstanding reliability, minimizing mistties,” says DeVries.

The LB4 large square balers also come equipped with steering sensors that interface with the intuitive AFS Pro 700 display to more efficiently help producers build the perfect hay bale. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

universal Skid Steer Adapter for compact pin-on loaders Worksaver, Inc. introduces the Universal Skid Steer Adapter to allow the use of skid steer type attachments for compact tractors up to 40 hp. with pin-on type loaders. The adapter is 54” wide x 17” high and features an all welded design with plated handles, springs and locks. With the universal skid steer adapter, loaders on compact tractors with pin-on buckets can now be updated with the popular skid steer attaching method. Customers can also easily switch attachments between a skid steer loader and compact tractor loader. This adapter can be paired with a pin-on bracket set for compact tractors to complete the unit. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

kiOti rX6010Pc utility tractor offers power shuttle for ease of use and greater comfort KIOTI Tractor set the bar high last year with the launch of its high-performance RX6010C, a durable 59-horsepower utility tractor. However, with the introduction of its new RX6010PC model earlier this month, the company raised the bar even higher.

On top of the 59-horsepower provided by the Daedong diesel engine, an additional 49.1-horsepower at 540 RPM is supplied by the standard independent rear PTO, giving the RX6010PC the ability to run a wide range of implements and attachments. The RX6010PC’s front-end and hood design offers a onetouch control release to simplify and speed up routine service and maintenance. A deluxe cab with a wide-range of comfort features is standard. A flat deck provides a productive work environment which is enhanced by amenities like an AM/FM stereo with CD player, cup holders and a 12-volt power outlet for plug-ins. The 12-speed transmission allows for travel up to 19 mph in either forward or reverse. Additional standard features include an adjustable tilt steering wheel, responsive power steering and wet multi-disc brakes, electric over hydraulic four-wheel drive and rear differential lock, for superior traction over the toughest ground conditions.

kinze introduces iSObuS electronics capability Kinze Manufacturing, Inc. announces a new option for its planters: ISOBUS-compatibility. This capability allows easy “plug and play” operation with any ISO-compatible tractor, including those sold by John Deere with GreenStar™ Displays. With this interconnectivity, farmers do not have to change monitors, displays, wiring harnesses, or electrical connectors with different implements from different manufacturers. The vehicle and equipment electronics speak the same language, enabling simpler operation than ever before. With ISO compatibility, one monitor in the tractor cab can run both the planter and the tractor, saving room in the cab and money on a second monitor, not to mention the time it takes to install a second monitor.

“The LB4 large square baler has been put to the test, baling more than 200,000 bales, and it has excelled in all kinds of crops and conditions,” says DeVries. Together, the new design elements create a product that is not only more efficient and reliable but also is easier to use and maintain. The baler is 2 feet narrower, allowing for better visibility around the baler and easier transport. Most major service points can be accessed by opening just one easyopen service door at ground-level, reducing complexity and maintenance time. The new KIOTI RX6010PC model tractor boasts a hydraulic shuttle transmission versus the synchro shuttle transmission offered on the RX6010C. The hydraulic shuttle provides the operator with the ability to change direction with the quick flip of a Power Shuttle Lever, eliminating the need to stop the tractor and step on the clutch to change direction. Continuous operation increases efficiency and delivers greater productivity when using the KIOTI RX6010PC. The tractor is equipped with a wet multi-plate clutch system to support the intended rigorous and continuous use of the tractor. In addition to the ability to change direction with the push 800-622-8836 |

The RX6010PC houses a 59-horsepower turbocharged Daedong diesel engine that is both powerful and fuel-efficient. KIOTI’s parent company, Daedong Industrial Company, Ltd., designs and builds its own engines, as well the other major components and systems on all KIOTI tractors, a practice the company has branded “The Power of 1™” manufacturing process. Manufacturing in this manner results in a better fit and finish, and optimal operating efficiencies on every KIOTI tractor built.


Many other parts of the baler have been reinforced for better wear and longer life, including the all-new, heavy-duty frame on the pickup and reel.


of a lever, the RX6010PC delivers an easier-to-handle loader experience. The telescoping Category II three-point hitch, which can be controlled directly from the operator’s station with a single-lever joystick, provides 3,710 pounds of lifting power, 24” aft of hitch. Standard quick-attach dual remotes are located near the three-point hitch. Mid-mounted hydraulic remotes are also standard for running front-end tools.

Kinze’s new technology means any ISOBUS-equipped tractor can be quickly connected using the ISOBUS standard tractor/ implement connectors. The user interface presented to the operator is the same, regardless of the brand of tractor or virtual terminal. Additionally, all planter settings are saved on the planter, so switching between tractors becomes a nonissue. “This new standard will bring even more convenience to farmers,” said Susanne (Kinzenbaw) Veatch, vice president and chief marketing officer for Kinze. “We understand the

“Twin-row crop production is increasing in popularity due to the potential yield advantages by narrowing corn rows,” says Bill Hoeg, Case IH Planter Sales and Marketing Manager in North America. “Case IH Twin-Row planters allow producers to increase plant populations without having to make any new investments or major modifications to existing harvesting or spraying equipment. Essentially, you change your planter and everything else remains the same as it was with 30-inch, 36-inch, 38-inch or 40-inch rows.”

coating fortified with new, heavy duty resin technology that provides the increased traction. It works well on interior or exterior concrete surfaces such as walkways, steps, ramps, pool decks and other areas that need improved traction. It is not recommended for use on garage floors, parking areas or decks.

The concept involves staggering seed in two rows, eight inches apart on 30-inch, 36-inch, 38-inch or 40-inch centers. Therefore, a corn head set for 30-inch, 36-inch, 38-inch or 40inch rows can harvest twin rows at the same time. However, this technology is not just for those who want more bushels of corn per acre or higher tonnage corn silage.


case ih AFS software offers more functionality and capacity than before

“Twin-row technology can also be used with other row crops, such as soybeans, cotton, milo and sunflowers,” says Hoeg. “Twin-row production is often credited for increased standability of crops, and this system utilizes a higher percentage of an acre compared to standard row widths.”

Case IH Advanced Farming Systems® (AFS) software is new and improved, offering more functionality and capacity to help producers farm more efficiently. Case IH worked with Farm Works® information management solutions to create this industry-leading software, which gives Case IH customers access to a complete range of desktop solutions for their farm operations.

“We’re excited to bring a new option of higher-powered engine to market that meet the most stringent air-quality standards while also delivering unequaled Kohler performance in the field,” said Justin Blount, director of marketing for Kohler Engines. “Of course, we also placed a premium on fuel efficiency and durability when designing these engines, so end users can rest assured knowing they’ve made an incredibly solid investment that’s easy on their wallet and the environment.” OEMs and end users interested in additional details are encouraged to connect with their Kohler sales representative for specific pricing and availability. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

F/S Manufacturing inc. introduces homestead 3-Point Sprayers

Tired of the endless walking involved when finding a fault in your fence? First finding the fault, going back to turn off the energizer, fixing the fence, then going back to turn the energizer on – again? Kencove Farm Fence Supplies offers the newest line of energizers with extended features to simplify fence troubleshooting needs. Made in the USA, this series of energizers works as hard as you do. Programmed to work with an optional remote control, the energizer can be turned on or off from anywhere along the fence line.

»equipment at work Fencing company claims profits increased by 50% using the

Man Saver Post Driver

Making its mark in the post driver industry, rohrer Manufacturing, creator of the ultra lightweight Man Saver Post Driver, helped increase profits over 45% for Lovewell Fencing, a Midwest based fencing company, in its residential fencing sector. (See case study below.) this driver is an American-made, lightweight portable pneumatic fence post driver on the market for farmers and ranchers, vineyards, construction centers, highway and public works departments to fence thousands of acres in a minimal amount of time without hauling thousands of pounds of equipment. 77-year-old machinist Dan rohrer of rohrer Manufacturing, created the fence post driver concept over 15 years ago. his vision was to create a tool that would reduce injuries, reduce time and budget. today, rohrer has developed a series of fence post drivers and expanded its capabilities with various adapters that allow them to drive almost any shaped post on the market up to 3.5" in diameter. the price of the drivers have never increased, making it the most competitive fence post driver on the market today. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– the following CASE STUDY illustrates the clear comparison of the Man Saver Post Driver versus standard fence post drivers on the market:

CHALLENGE Profits were down for Lovewell Fencing in their residential business sector due to increased expenses of utilizing and hauling heavy equipment for small fencing projects. The need was to acquire fence post driver equipment that required much less hauling costs.

iDEA After months of due diligence in the driver marketplace, Lovewell purchased seven M-type fence post drivers and insert sleeves that don't require large compressors. The ultimate goal was to reduce project expenses by eliminating the requirement to use heavy weight axle trailers to haul equipment and to reduce overall project expenses. The Man Saver Post Drivers run on small compressors that can be

hauled in a small trailer, behind a four wheeler, or in the back of a pickup truck to reach remote areas.

RESULT • Easy access to remote areas resulted in more job orders that may not have been profitable beforehand • Reduced project expenses by 50% • Increased production by 35-40% within six months • Increased profits by 50% during initial six months “It has definitely been a win-win for our company and our customers,” said Tom Lovewell, owner of Lovewell Fencing. “The introduction of the Man Saver Fence Post Drivers has enabled our company to greatly increase profits in just six months,” added Lovewell.

Lone Star Hydraulic Drills provide superior power in tough terrains Little Beaver’s line of Lone Star Hydraulic Drills work easily and efficiently in a variety of applications including, water well drilling, soil sampling, geotechnical testing and auger drilling. Available in four configurations, LS200H, LS200H+, LS300H and LS300H+, Lone Star Hydraulic Drills are capable of achieving drilling depths ranging from 200 to 300 feet. Designed for operation in areas with minimal resources for transportation, all hydraulic models break down to a compact size in order to be easily crated. Ideal for shipping to remote areas, the units are still powerful enough to reach target digging depths in all types of terrains.

but, thanks to its stronger mud pump, drills 6-inch boreholes up to 300 feet. The LS200H+ and LS300H+ feature a more robust hydraulic system ideally suited to handle even more challenging and rough terrain. Built with the same operator-inspired design as the LS200H and LS300H, the LS200H+ and LS300H+ feature greater power and enhanced performance. Each unit is equipped with a 20-horsepower Honda gas or a 19-horsepower Yanmar diesel engine. The easy-to-operate hydraulic system features pullback forces of 5,000 pounds and push down forces adjustable up to 5,000 pounds when anchored, ensuring

The LS200H and LS300H feature a simple hydraulic system with pullback forces of 2,500 pounds and push down forces adjustable up to 2,500 pounds. A convenient bypass flow switch offers precise control and adjustment to achieve desired pushdown force. Equipped with a standard anchor kit, the unit is capable of quick drilling in even the toughest, rockiest surfaces. Strategically placed controls provide easy operation of the rotary and the draw-works. Furthermore, a heavy-duty swivel base design allows the rotary to move aside for full and easy access to the borehole. Each drill is equipped with 11-horsepower Honda gas or 10-horsepower Yanmar or Hatz diesel engine for worry-free performance.

All Lone Star Hydraulic Drills are designed with longevity, ease of operation and convenience in mind. Made with a heavy-duty welded steel frame and reinforced table base, hydraulic drills provide years of reliable operation with little maintenance. For convenience during operation, a 3-way ball valve allows operators to bypass the mudflow when changing the pump, eliminating the need to shut down the mud pump. In addition, each drill is equipped with controls that include rear mounted dual and adjustable relief valves. Lone Star has also developed a package of tools and accessories that includes items needed to successfully operate in challenging environments. Packages vary for each model but include casing slips and a flush tool designed to help clear mud from the borehole and replace it with clean water. Also included is a bailer used to flush the hole and wash out fines and sediment, effectively pulling those loose materials out to create an efficient and clean water well. In addition, each unit is fully equipped with a toolbox containing a set of wrenches, necessary for tightening every bolt on the drill, a grease gun, pipe joint lubricant and a basic set of spare parts. This package allows for easy set-up, and efficient performance – for minimal hassle and downtime.

The LS200H is ideal for drilling 6-inch boreholes in sand, clay, gravel and rock formations and offers a digging depth of 200 feet. The unit provides 70 RPM speed and 375 foot-pounds max torque. The LS300H provides the same speeds and torque


the drill reaches its specified depth every time. Similar to the LS200 and LS300, the LS200+ digs 6-inch boreholes at depths of up to 200 feet, and the LS300+ up to 300 feet. With rotation speeds of 95 RPM at 10 GPM and max torque of 665 footpounds, the added plus of these hydraulic drills make digging through soft to medium rock formations possible.

Gear up your Grain Cart

HYDRONIC RADIANT FLOOR HEAT 101 • I feel the tubing is more protected during the pour of concrete. The tubing is not suspended on the re-rod waiting for someone to step on it and damage it. • It is more protected during the lifetime of the slab because it is farther away from drill bits, nails and screws.

Kinze offers cart maintenance tips to farmers preparing for harvest.

• Ease of installation – there are special staples and screw clips that utilize the use of tools that allow you to fasten to the Styrofoam from a standing position. These methods are also considered faster than attaching to the re-rod. • When placed at the bottom of the concrete, I feel the tubing is also a little more protected in the event of a crack since the tubing is not totally encased in the concrete (the bottom of tubing is against the foam or other base) it should be more protected.

“Harvest can and should move very quickly when the crop is ready,” says Phil Jennings, service manager at Kinze® Manufacturing, Inc. “The grain cart is a hard-working piece of equipment and farmers should make sure it’s in good shape before heading to the field.”

__________________________________________________________ Part two of Hydronic Radiant Floor Heat 101 will appear in the November edition of the Eastern Farm And Livestock Directory, or you can read it now on our website at The series is located in the «how-to & maintenance area of Equipment Talk. Les Graham is president and owner of Radiant Outfitters based out of New London, Minnesota. Graham has 24 years of experience in radiant floor heating and has certified with the Radiant Panel Association.

To ensure farmers have the most efficient harvest possible, Jennings recommends they perform preseason maintenance on their grain carts.

Grain Moisture Testers give you precise readings. If you plan on testing the sample later, make sure that you cover the container. Getting Accurate Readings through Elevator Testing If you are still not sure about the readings, you can always compare them with the readings from your elevator’s tester. A Word to the Wise Grain testers might be convenient but that is no reason for you to ignore the user manuals that they come with. Give special attention to your chosen device’s temperature compensation. The temperature of your grain can affect the readings on the moisture tester. There are some testers that will adjust the temperature for you. However, there are also some that will either require you to adjust temperature compensation readings manually or measure the temperature of the grain yourself. Grain that is stored in either hot or cold temperatures will not give you accurate readings. For example, testing grain that is being dried is a bad idea. Electronic testers cannot

October 2012

accurately measure the moisture content of grain that is being rapidly heated or rapidly cooled. The fact that grain loses a lot of its moisture while it cools is another reason why you should let it rest in a container before using the device to measure moisture content. Changing moisture levels is also why the same sample of grain should be measured more than three times until you come up with a satisfactory average estimate.

“In farming, there are so many factors that we cannot control. Preventive maintenance helps us maximize the opportunity to be effective and efficient at harvest time,” says Jennings.

Don’t let a few drops of moisture ruin all of your hard work. Farmers need ample time to prepare their crop before sending it to be sold. A grain moisture tester can help you save your harvest and ensure that it sells for what it is actually worth. _________________________________________ About AgraTronix: AgraTronix has been a leader in the electronic moisture sensing instrumentation industry for more than 37 years.

Efficiency is key when it comes to harvest, and this has become even more important in recent years as farm sizes increase yet the amount of time to harvest remains the same.

Grain carts are inherently simple products compared to other farm machinery, so most of the pre-harvest maintenance can be done with visual checks in a short amount of time, says Jennings. Farmers who perform these pre-harvest measures will be prepared when the crop is ready. “By the time harvest rolls around, it may have been 10 months since your cart has been used,” says Jennings. “Carts get used hard at harvest, and usually don’t get looked at again until the following year. When you rely on a piece of equipment this much, it’s imperative to take preventive measures to be certain there are no surprises in the field.”

Kinze Manufacturing's 'Gear up your Grain Cart for Harvest' Checklist • Inspect augers for noticeable wear – over time augers may become smaller in diameter, which will diminish their performance. • Check for proper adjustment of the drive belts and make sure serviceable parts of the power take off (PTO) shafts are greased or serviced. • If wheels carry your cart, reset the torque on the wheel nuts and check the tire pressure. • If tracks carry your cart, check the torque on various bolts and tension on the track itself. • Check the oil in the gearbox. • Look over the tarp to make sure there aren’t any tears or spots showing wear. • Confirm the accuracy of the scale system by checking the weight and load of your cart with the legal for trade scale at your local grain elevator. • Inspect the hydraulic hoses to ensure they have no visible wear spots or leaks. • Make sure the lights are working properly. • Check to see that the safety chains are attached securely and in good condition. • Make sure your “Slow Moving Vehicle” sign is clean and clearly visible.

What Happens After the Affair? A number of popular Hollywood movies involving the farm and ranch population have portrayed extramarital affairs as acceptable, such as The Bridges of Madison County, The Horse Whisperer, and Brokeback Mountain. However, most extramarital affairs usually have devastating effects on the participants, and also on any children in their respective families. Recently a farmer in another state emailed me about an affair he had with his neighbor’s wife. He asked if I would write about marriage and infidelity. I thank this person for bringing up a matter that troubles many farm and nonfarm people alike. After learning about the affair, the neighbor’s husband filed for divorce. The wife of the man who contacted me wants to put the matter behind them but he feels unresolved about a number of things. Between the two couples there are five children. I don’t have personal experience involving adultery because Marilyn and I have always been faithful during our 40 years of marriage. As a professional psychologist, I have worked with many individuals and couples involved in ongoing or past affairs; this article draws on what I have learned about marital fidelity. Children are likely to emulate their parents. Almost always, their parents are their most important role models for their own marriages. How their parents behave makes these behaviors more acceptable to the children. Children who witness – or learn later on – that their parents divorced, have an increased chance of getting divorced from their own spouses. The divorce rates of farm and non-farm couples have been about the same for 30 years, whereas in previous generations farm couples divorced less frequently. Somewhat over 40 percent of first marriages involve divorce; about 60% of second marriages end in divorce and the odds of divorce increase with each successive marriage. In my experience, considerably less than half of farm and non-farm divorces involve extramarital sex, inappropriate internet or telephone contacts, or engaging in pornography with persons other than their mates. A12

800-622-8836 |

Survey statistics suggest that 35-65 percent ofmarriages involving an extramarital affair end in divorce. Even though one or both parents cheated on his/her spouse and they did not divorce, their children still have a higher risk of cheating in their own marriages. Conversely, if children observe their parents repair their marital relationship, the children are more likely to take similar steps when “the going gets tough” in their respective marriages. An extramarital affair does not have to lead to divorce. The sequel to this is even more important: It takes a lot of work to fix what’s wrong in the relationship. Usually there are many underlying issues that contribute to unfaithful behavior. Physical or sexual attraction to participate in an affair is usually temporary and diminishes as the participants realize their thrills are not necessarily love. As persons withdraw from an affair they typically experience depression, uncertainty about their marriage relationship and themselves, and they may seek renewal of illicit relations or a new lover.

Almost always the troubled marriage partners need outside help—such as a trained mediator, psychologist, marriage and family therapist, professional counselor, pastor or other competent professional. The profession of the helper is less important than the skill and wisdom of this person or persons. As the partners resolve the issues that contributed to the affair, it is beneficial to conduct a Renewal of Vows ceremony. It is beneficial to incorporate the children and trusted friends and family members in the service, even if they are not aware of the extramarital affair. Sometimes the marriage is beyond repair and trust can’t be rebuilt. There are occasions when divorce is best for all the involved parties, including the children. Perhaps one partner decides to not endure another affair or deed that earns further mistrust. Like the repair work, the decision to divorce is best made with outside consultation and after giving the partner opportunity to change destructive behaviors.

All these matters require much time and effort to uncover and resolve to the degree that both the husband and wife feel they can go on together. The healing process takes at least a year and usually much longer for both partners to reestablish trust and full commitment to faithfulness thereafter. In a sense, it takes the rest of their lives. The farm persons I see in my professional office are a little different than the nonfarm persons I have assisted over the years. The reasons why farm persons have approached me for marital assistance include these, from more to less frequent: gradually growing apart due to excessive and often continuing farming-related stresses, financial problems, overindulgence in work, problems among in-laws, involvement in alcohol or drug abuse, child or spouse abuse, and failure or refusal to obtain treatment for other behavioral health problems such as major or bipolar depression.

‘Draft Dodging’

Starting Early on

time again!

HOLIDAY SEASON SAVING! Cutting the cost of holiday giving doesn’t mean not giving gifts – it means you change your attitude and strategy to fit your pocket. Agriculture is mostly a once-a-year paycheck. Next fall is a long way off, and we have 12 months of bills to keep paid up – so we make a lot of our gifts. ©2012

It’s hard to think about icy winds and cruel, bitter cold when the temperatures are still nice and warm, but the overnight temperatures are getting colder now, and will continue to do so. While the weather is still mild, it’s a good time to go over the outside of your home and ‘bat the cracks’. I read an article that said that almost every home has the equivalent of a 2-1/2 square foot open hole that allows air leakage that can easily cost us anywhere from 30 to 40 percent more in heating and cooling bills! Since this amounts to a fairly large chunk of change to the tune of several hundreds of dollars a year or more, it’s wise to plug those holes any way we can. I buy caulking in the fall every year and go around the outside of my house. A good place to start is where any pipes come into your home – plumbing and heating, etc. To keep out the ‘mouse-type’ critters, plug the biggest holes with steel wool. Mice can’t chew through the stuff. Cover the steel wool with the caulking. I also check the door and window frames, corners of the house where the siding comes together and around my built-in water cooler air conditioner. (Around that piece of metal, I use foam sealant.) I also put caulking around the gap where the house meets the foundation, and I have discovered that this is one of my biggest money savers. It takes a lot of caulk and foam to close the gap, but the amount of savings in heating and cooling are considerable. We also put plastic sheeting over the windows. It cuts down on the drafts considerably in this old farm house, and, it’s something I can do myself. Then, I make some I call ‘Draft Dodgers’. My ‘Draft Dodgers’ are nothing more than old blue jeans legs stitched shut on one end – or you can make a tube out of the fabric of your choice. Fill the fabric ‘tube’ it with anything heavy – like sand, sawdust or grains. I use wood stove pellets in my tubes. I don’t care to use grains or beans because if they get wet, things start to grow or worse, get moldy. I don’t sew the open end of the tube shut for that reason. I just use a heavy rubber band as a closure. Remember: Caulk and save! And make a ‘Dodger’ or two for yourself, or make several to give as practical gifts for Christmas! A14

We listen to folks all year long say, “Gee, I’d sure like a ________(fill in the blank).” If you find that item on sale or can make it for that person, the gift means a lot more than just anything slapped in wrapping paper!

the commercially made blocks. We also decorated the cardboard box with glued-on gift wrap and it lasted for years. We also shopped for things for ‘busy boxes’ for the smaller children nearing school age. Crayons on sale for 25 cents a box, glue sticks for 10 cents each, 25 cents for four to six pencils, a ream of paper ($3 for 500 sheets), and a pair of blunt-nosed school scissors for under a dollar. This keeps the kids busy for days and days, drawing, cutting and coloring. For the ‘Drama Queen’ who loves to pretend, a ‘Dress-Up’ box can be made of yard sale items: Jewelry, fancy dress shoes – what little princess doesn’t love to trip around in high-heels! A fancy dress can be cut to size with a pair of shears so the little ones don’t trip. We go to thrift stores for these things and for under $10 you can dress the princess in style!

Always pay in CASH. By starting early, like October, you can stretch the buying out over time so you won’t have any credit card payments come January. We made a lot of the toys for our children. Wooden blocks cut from ends of lumber, sanded smooth and then either painted (or not) and put in a container for safekeeping. This made for many hours of building things, and we didn’t spend the $30 to $40 for

Home made play dough is also a welcome gift and easily made with one of the many recipes available in craft books and on-line.

Save Money by Getting a Head Start on Holiday Savings (and other helpful hints!)

Cheap Wrapping As the stores clearance their summer merchandise like paper plates, napkins, and tablecloths, you can get ahead of the game and stretch those holiday dollars a little bit further. I buy the paper tablecloths for 50 cents at this time of year, and then use them to wrap gifts for Christmas – especially for the little ones. They don’t care what is printed on the paper; they are going to rip it off anyway to get to the toys inside. Why spend $5 for a fancy roll of gift paper that will end up in the trash? ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Baking Savings Many of our Christmas gifts are food items, either made up for immediate enjoyment or in the form of a basket of baking supplies for those who love to make their own goodies. I watch for sales on things like chocolate chips, nuts, colored sprinkles, brown and powdered sugars, cooking oil and butter/shortening.

Midwest Farm and Livestock Directory |

Be sure and check the prices on different brands of the sugars, etc. Many times the ‘advertised brand names’ will be double the cost of the store brand. When it comes down to it, sugar is sugar, flour is flour, corn syrup is corn syrup (you get the picture. Compare the prices and save many $$$! These items are placed in baskets, boxes and bags that are found at yard sales. Once decorated with some inexpensive wrappings these thoughtful gifts are very cost effective. We also make jams, jellies, pickles and relishes during the summer/fall months when the farmer’s markets are full of good, healthy fruits and vegetables. Why pay $8 or $10 for a jar of expensive jam when you can make five or six jars of jam for the same amount of money, especially if you have several people on your list to give to?

Fall Organization: Interview With An Expert June Cleaver, from the television series Leave It to Beaver, doesn’t live here anymore, but many years ago I married a man whose mother could sure have given June a run for her money. In fact, back in the sixties, my motherin-law, who raised three boys, was nominated for Suburban Homemaker of the Year of St. Paul, Minnesota. Her home was described as “a model of neatness and comfort.” No kidding. For years this has been scary, motivating, and intriguing to me. I wondered: How can I ever keep as nice a home? Gosh, I had better get my act together. And, most important, how did she do it? I finally got the courage to ask her and this is what I learned. Laundry practices were first on my list of questions because my husband still speaks longingly of his childhood underwear drawer, always magically tidy and full. Did she do laundry all the time? Many people who attend my clutter control classes say they are constantly doing laundry. My mother-in-law said no. She did laundry on Mondays and Thursdays. She used bleach alternate times on her whites, so whites would stay white without getting holes in them. She put a fabric sheet in every dryer load so things wouldn’t have static and stick together. How often were sheets and towels changed? (Do you ever wonder how often other people really do this?) My mother-in-law washed towels every time she did laundry and sheets got changed once per week and washed on a laundry day. How about the rest of the bedding? The beds got stripped down, and everything on the beds got washed, and the mattresses were turned in the spring and in the fall. She demonstrated how to neatly fold a fitted sheet by tucking the corners into each other, smoothing the sheet flat, and then folding it neatly. Cool. With three boys and a dog, she must have dusted and vacuumed constantly? No. She said she dusted and vacuumed once per week unless there was a specific mess that needed to be cleaned up. Did she move the furniture every time? No, she only moved it once in a while. Did she clean the baseboards and curtains every time? No. She did a thorough room-byroom cleaning once each spring and fall. What about windows? They got cleaned every six months, including the storms and the screens. Did she empty closets out all the time? No. She would just cull out extra stuff in closets when she was in them. She didn’t empty out the closets at all. Most toys were kept in a central spot downstairs. I am guessing this helped keep the bedrooms tidier and easier to straighten. Maybe the kitchen and bathroom were getting cleaned all the time? Did she spend all her time A16

mopping? No. These rooms got scrubbed down once a week. As a little preventative maintenance, she did quickly swish out the tub each time. The toilet, tub, and the rest of the bathroom got cleaned weekly.

Did she have special cleaning products that did a better job than anyone else’s? No. She used a solution of one-part vinegar to three-parts water for cleaning glass mirrors and windows. She used an over-the-counter product in the kitchen, a spray product for soap scum, and a clinging product for the toilet bowls. She liked non-sudsing ammonia in water for general cleaning. After wiping down fixtures, this same water would be used to mop the bathroom and kitchen floors. It was a simple effective system, and it didn’t waste cleaning water either. What was I learning? There were no astounding discoveries here, but I began to see a pattern. My mother-in-law had very thorough organizational habits. Also, almost every time I asked a cleaning question, her answer included “unless there was something more important going on that day.” Keeping a clean house was important, but it was clear that people and activities came first. She wasn’t one to waste time lingering over partially completed tasks. When I asked about laundry, she said, “If I’m getting tied down doing laundry, I might as well get it done and over with.” Her secrets to nice housekeeping didn’t include fanatically frequent cleaning schedules or special mystery cleaning products. She had developed regular routines, including a twiceper-year system for those nagging big projects. I often waste time pondering and worrying about some of the big cleaning jobs instead of just doing them. I think it would be very freeing to establish a better weekly schedule and to practice a twice-per-year spring and fall deep cleaning schedule. If I know I am going to do laundry on Thursdays, I don’t have to think about it the other six days of the week. If I mark down a couple weeks twice a year on my calendar for the big projects, I can quit fretting about them the rest of the year. Maybe I can simplify my own housekeeping by following my mother-in-law’s lead of sticking to a few reasonable household cleaning habits. Ultimately, we each have different lives and circumstances, so we each get to find what works best. This is one approach.

We have found that planting wheat with a KINZE planter in 15” rows gives you, the producer, more control of seed spacing and seed depth than with a drill. Plants will emerge faster and have less competition between sunlight and moisture.

On the left is a wheat plate and on the right is the wheat plate fitted on a bean unit.

By planting in 15” rows approximately 3/4 of the seeds per acre are needed to produce comparable yields as a drill giving you, the producer, more profit per acre at harvest. Yes, weeds and disease are a concern in wheat, but with 15” spacing between rows less damage is done during chemical and fertilizer applications. Less disease pressure occurs by allowing more air to flow between rows making mildew less of a factor.

Seed Charts are available as an approximation but may vary slightly depending on seed sizes.

4-H WORTH SAVING If you recall, we put out a plea for help to save 4-H--about a year ago. The response from people offering to help save 4-H programs across this great country of ours has been overwhelming. The objective has not only been to raise enough money to keep our 4-H programs alive and well, but to philosophically and politically up-grade 4-H to a higher level of importance. From the County to the National scene there has to be a newfound recognition of the importance of 4-H. Both Congress and County Supervisors have to recognize that 4-H is about building character and leadership. The purpose of the projects is to teach skills, but understanding the value of relationships and how to maintain them is far more important than that of finishing a steer or baking a cake. Would this country be in the financial mess that it’s in if our current leaders were as astute as our “founding fathers”? The government way back in the 1800’s saw fit to create 4-H; realizing that this country would be built on the “backs” of its youth. The only thing that has changed in all those years is our deviation from our “roots”. Greed and selfserving bureaucracy that can’t see beyond ME FIRST have watered down those solid “Christian values”. While filling their own pockets and laughing all the way to the bank, government threw us enough crumbs to make us believe that our multi-tiered homes with a car in every stall was the result of their actions. Now we are paying the price for their unscrupulous ways, and suffering the consequences. Should 4-H have to suffer at the expense of these lying, cheating thieves that couldn’t run their own businesses? Giving bailouts to failed companies that, in turn, reward incompetency with multi-million dollar bonuses, is like giving trophies and purple ribbons to he/she who stands at the bottom of the class. How can we justify such financial waste---while, at the same time, saying there isn’t enough money to support 4-H? Rewarding failure, while penalizing success makes little or no sense to me! What kind of a role model have we become for our kids? The younger generation is going to have to pay for our mistakes, but let’s not compound the situation by removing the one model in our life that has stood the test of time and produced a platform of stability and leadership. 4-H is the one constant form which many of us draw strength and measure competitive standards in life. The “standard bearer” of 4-H is that of teaching kids to be good stewards of their life and the lives of those they affect. Life isn’t just about doing it yourself; it is equally that of doing for others. The A18

more you give the more you get back in return! 4-H instills these values in a way that leaves a lifetime impression. Do we really want to see our kids cheated out of this, one of life’s finest opportunities, to develop character and responsibility? When you cheat, you cheat those closest and most dependent upon you. Is there anyone closer to you than your kids? Can the cheaters in Washington really do this with good conscious? Are their priorities so eroded that they no longer recognize those principals that made this country great? 4-H is more than a match for this crazy world. 4-H not only has what it takes to excel at most anything, but to adapt when changes come along. 4-H has an adventurous spirit and sense of assurance that comes from having overcome challenges before. However, are we up to this challenge, or do we stand back with our hands in our pocket? 4-H has taught the skills to self-sustain and overcome the obstacles that life throw our way. It has shown us strength in the weakest of times and a determination that is unmatched. Isn’t this what dreams are made of? Isn’t this why we should step up to the plate and fight for what’s right? I’ve noted, with interest, that there are some counties that have taken the initiative of increasing sales tax. One county in particular is considering adding an extra half-cent to the sales tax to make up for lost state aid and add another revenue stream. This would more than adequately cover the cost of servicing 4-H. When considering cuts in local government aid of more that $100 million per average county, the threat of discontinuing 4-H is understandable. My point of contention is---should it be 4-H that goes, os is there a need for a review board to oversee such action. I am not for raising taxes, but it is one option to put on the table for consideration. Perhaps there are several programs that should be eliminated long before 4-H. It only takes 300 signatures to initiate a countrywide referendum, so maybe that’s the place to start in our county. You still have a voice and more power than a hand-full of county commissioners! Our current economic disaster represents such a contradiction of values. Food and shelter are in such desperate peril; putting businesses, families, and relationships at risk. Contrast this with kids playing sports for multi million dollar salaries. Is this the message we want to send our kids?

4-H ACHIEVEMENT It was a typical Saturday chore day back on the farm; doing those extra things that never get done during the week. The only thing different about this Saturday was the urgency to get it all done early enough to attend an afternoon county 4-H activities meeting. It was obvious that my Dad was more engaged than usual, and finally, he just couldn’t hold back any longer---he just blurted out, “I’m not supposed to tell you this, but you’re going to get a big reward this afternoon.” He didn’t tell me what it was, but it was pretty obvious that this was his cue for telling me to kick it into high gear and be prepared to be at my best. This meant dressing a little nicer, being on time, and on my best behavior. There is this ol’folklore about dads living their lives vicariously through their son. This was the epiphany of this too familiar scenario. Just as Dad was always front and center in his involvement in all of my 4-H projects, this occasion was the “icing on the cake”. He just couldn’t contain himself in the exuberance of the moment. When the county extension agent (Johnson) presented me with the Alpha Gamma Rho state achievement award it was like the most special thing that had ever happened in my life. A gold, personalized watch to be held in perpetuity was second only to that of my parents’ sense of pride. Though there are times when working on the farm that ones’ finest jewelry shouldn’t be worn, it was such a statement of achievement that I just couldn’t take it off. But much to the chagrin of my mother, I accidently lost it while moving machinery from one field to another. It slipped off my arm, in the most precarious of situations, and later retrieved in that of an unbelievable fluke. It was my mother’s relentless determination of faith that found her following an old county road grader down the road that she had been searching with a “fine tooth comb”. In her mind it was a lost cause, except that she and God had a working relationship like none other. The sun was shining brighter and higher than I had ever seen it, and sure enough there was this bright glistening reflection; almost blinding as she went for the light--it was the watch! There was nothing that could up-stage this experience --- except, maybe the following year when I was now enrolled in college. The announcement wasn’t so dramatic, but, none the less still exciting. It was a more formal a notice, and I again had been selected for the “State Achievement Award.” This time it was a trip to 4-H Congress in Chicago; leadership involvement that more clearly defined my purpose and direction in life. Thanks to 4-H I’ve never wavered from those values of HEAD-HEARTHANDS that have impacted my life.

Food for Thought”

continued from A18

Kids being paid obscene amounts of money to play a game that they would otherwise play for nothing is disrespectful to those who just want to play a role in life of responsibility, accomplishment and accountability. We need a reality check--not a check of disproportionate value! We have money enough to support athletic franchise pay rolls in excess of a $100 million, and, yet, we can’t see the rationale and wisdom of supporting our 4-H programs. Until these issues get resolved this country is doomed to fail. Just as sports should stand alone, without public subsidy, 4-H should lead the way in corroborating a co-existence with society. The merits of the building blocks of 4-H should be more sustainable then that game of chance. Consider the building blocks of 4-H: HEAD - HEART - HANDS - HEALTH I pledge my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalty, my hands to larger service, and my health to better living--for my club, my community, and my world. Talent, persistence, and ability enter the equation of success for any kid; be it that of sports or a lifetime achievement of 4-H. Both 4-H and sports have carved a niche in the lives of our kids. Both play an important role in the development of their future. But to disproportionately support one at the expense of the other seems a little disingenuous. Over-achievers will always be compensated; monetarily or honorably, but may the playing field be made equal. It is an honor to win a championship; an honor that can’t be taken away from with any amount of money, so put the weight of your support in the arena of greatest value! Ken E.

The True Meaning of Maturity I would like share a cute story with you by an unknown author: Amber, age 6, was sitting at the kitchen table, watching her mother rinse the dinner dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Noticing that Mom was sporting a few strands of white hair in addition to her familiar auburn color, Amber asked inquisitivley, “Momma, why are those hairs white?” “Well, every time yo do something wrong and make me cry, or make me unhappy, one of my hairs turns white,” Mom replied. This was a new insight for Amber. She was quiet for a while and then asked, “Momma, how come all of Grandma’s hairs are white?”

Children understand more about life than we sometimes think they do. Maturity is the ability to control anger and settle differences without violence and destruction. Maturity is patience. It is the willingness to pass up immediate pleasure in favor of longterm gain. Maturity is perseverance, the ability to sweat out a project or a situation in spite of heavy opposition and discouraging setbacks. Maturity is the capacity to face unpleasantness and frustration, discomfort and defeat, without complaint or collapse. Maturity is humility. It is being big enough to say, “I was wrong.” And, when you’re right, you need not say, “I told you so.” Maturity is the ability to make a decision and follow through. The immature spend their lives exploring endless possibilities and then do nothing.

Maturity means dependability, keeping one’s word and coming through in a crisis. The immature are masters of the alibi. They are conflicted and disorganized. Their lives are a maze of broken promises, former friends, unfinished business and good intentions that never materialize.

Difficulties in life are intended to make us better – not bitter. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 31: If God is for us, who can be against us? This is purely my opinion that other Christians may agree with: If you pursue happiness, it will elude you. But if you focus on God and your family first, the needs of others, your work, meeting new people, and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you.

I would like to close with a brain teaser: I am your constant companion. I can be your greatest asset or heaviest burden. I can push you to success or down to disappointment. I am at your command! Half the things you do might as well be turned over to me because I do them for you as if you are asleep. I can do them quickly, correctly, and profitably. I am easily managed, just be firm with me. In those who are great so am I, In those who are failures, I probably am too. I am not a machine even though I work with the precision of one and the intelligence of a person. You can run me for profit or ruin, show me what you want done, educate me, train me, lead me, reward me! And then I will do it automatically. I am your servant. Who or what am I?

The answer is HABIT!

Enjoy the beautiful change of weather! –Steve Huneke

»ONE-LINER about the DROUGHT: This drought has been so dry that when the salmon swam up stream they left a cloud of dust.

And, based on the Serenity Prayer: Maturity is the art of living in peace with what we cannot change, the courage to change what we know should be changed, and wisdom to know the difference.

Bruce Lee: Personal growth guru?

Replacement Auger Flighting for low cost repair of all types of implement & machinery

A list of the best personal development gurus of all time would have to include Dale Carnegie, Jim Rohn, Tony Robbins and Bruce Lee. That last one is not a typo. Bruce Lee is known for creating Jeet Kune Do and his many martial arts films from the 1970s, but if you study his philosophy, he was a deep thinker and knew what was required to become successful. Let’s look at a few of his quotes to see how they can help you live a better, fuller, richer life. Achieve your biggest goals “If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” If you talk to any extreme endurance athlete, they will tell you emphatically that the key to success or failure lies in their mind, not in their bodies. Their bodies will succumb to the pain if and only if their minds allow it to. They will condition their minds as much as their bodies because they know that if they allow for a single thought of doubt or weakness, then the game is over. In what areas of your life do you feel stuck? What can you do right now that will help you push forward? Secret to getting anything you want in life “If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.” The most successful people are often not the smartest, because when you are “smart,” you of course need to calculate, analyze and ponder before tackling a new goal or project. Those of us who aren’t Mensa members don’t feel compelled to conduct such analysis so we just get started. Bruce’s principle is more true today than when he said it. We have access to so much more information than ever before, and we now need turnby-turn navigation for everything in our life or we feel naked. We couldn’t possibly just start, could we? “To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.” We are experiencing a deficit of personal responsibility. There will always be 1,000 A20

reasons why you can’t do something, why it’s not your fault and why you should blame others for your situation. That’s easy. Three-year-old children have already mastered this. The greatest gift you can give yourself is to fully accept responsibility for every area of your life. Unhappy in your relationship? You can continue to blame your partner, but 20 years will pass and you’ll still be unhappy and you’ll still be blaming her. Finances in shambles? You can blame politicians, the economy and Wall Street bankers, but doing so will never help you improve your money situation. That’s the funny thing about blame and responsibility. Who to blame is a whole lot less important than what will be done to resolve the problem – and that requires you taking full responsibility.

WE ARE EQUIPPED TO INSTALL ALL TYPES OF FLIGHTING! HEAVY REPAIR FLIGHTING FOR: Combine Harvestors • Grain Augers • Etc. Hand Indentification: Cut to any length.




When ordering flighting, specify tube size, right or left hand, tube or shaft size that flighting welds to, and what it is to be used on (i.e. combine, grain auger, etc.)

How to invest your time and energy for maximum success “The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.” Think about the most successful people you know personally. Is there anything special about them? Probably not. What makes them unique is that they invested and dedicated time, energy and focus into a particular area. Find your niche and specialize. Become the best in the world in that area. You can be average at 99 percent of your job, but if you excel at the right 1 percent, then you will be a superstar and will never have to worry about job security. “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” Invest your time and energy into a narrow niche. Don’t be all things to all people – that is a prescription for mediocrity. What’s the one area you can master? This is where you should start your 10,000 “kicks.” Bruce Lee: the martial artist, actor and now personal growth master. His philosophy is timeless as is his approach to creating a better life. For him, there was only one direction – forward. “Be happy, but never satisfied.” Well said, Bruce.

» » » Product Spotlight « « « Stop filter fuel gelling in cold weather

tanks overnight. No cutting or welding, just clean mounting area on fuel tank, peel and stick it on.

To help prevent diesel/biodiesel fuel gelling in cold weather, E-Tip, Inc. introduces the Universal Fuel Filter Preheater™ that mounts easily to the engine fuel filter. It is just one in an extensive line of products for cold weather starting, security, safety and maintenance.

Include both the “Peel & Stick” Universal Preheater™ for engines, hydraulic systems, transmissions, gear boxes, etc. and the Universal Filter Preheater™ in your cold weather package and be assured that you have selected a more effective and complete solution to cold weather-related problems.

Cold conditions often affect fuel flow during start-up and in daily operations. When it is cold enough to cause fuel gelling, over-theroad trucks, heavy machinery, automobiles, generators and other equipment that must operate in low temperatures can become disabled. The gelling plugs the filter, preventing fuel passage. The only solutions are to replace the filter or warm up the fuel until it flows again, requiring towing the equipment to an inside location or bringing a heater to the equipment site.

The Universal Fuel Filter Preheater™ carries a three-year materials and workmanship warranty. A standard 12v Pre-heater is priced at $138. Contact E-Tip, Inc. at 800-530-5064, email, or visit www.etipinc. com for more information. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Dyna Flo, Inc. announces the Dyna Flo Pump General Irrigation is licensed in sales, design and installation of deep well and submersible pumps with 40+ years’ handson experience. We have been selling and installing electric pumps, diesel-driven pumps and PTO pumps for irrigation and industrial applications. We have extensive knowledge in handling water and a subsurface and surface dewatering division.

Marine-style wheel bearings with springloaded grease cups will resist water contamination, and has only one greaseable high thrust ball bearing on the drive line behind the PTO shaft. The Dyna Flo pump operates at 1,000 RPM and will produce 3,000 GPM at approx. 15 feet of lift. The 12”x50’ hoses are fitted with ring lock ends. The pump can be used for flood control, emptying sloughs, flooding rice ponds and cranberry ponds as well as for water transfer.

Lam-Ply Trusses can span up to 72 feet Used in many applications, from machinery storage to livestock facilities to horse arenas Starwood Rafters, the manufacturers of Lam-Ply trusses, is a company devoted to building high-quality trusses for large buildings. They offer many types of trusses to meet any need, including: • Pole sheds

• Free stalls

For more information about this pump, visit

• Pavilion shelters • Machinery storage


The Lam-Ply Truss can span up to 72 feet and is used in many applications, from machinery storage to livestock facilities to horse arenas. It also has been developed with a gambrel-style and a mono-slope design.

3-point implement caddies from Elk Creek Welding & Steel Products

• Riding arenas

• Solar barns

The new Model 500 from Elk Creek Welding & Steel Products is designed for mounting tank or hopper on frame. (Frame does not raise and lower - only the rear hitch.)

Elk Creek Model 500

Gelled Diesel Fuel Filter

Features include: • Lift capacity: 15,000 lbs. • Carrying capacity: 27,000 lbs. total with 3,000 lbs. on hitch • Lifting hitch: 3-point style, 12” to 48” lower tug height - Cat. III - adjustable top link • Axle/tires: four 6,000 lbs. hub/spindles 16.5L x 16.1 - floatation tires on “rocking bolster” • Dual wheels: 90” wide center to center (std. width for 30” rows - wider row spacings by special order) Fuel Filter Preheater

The Universal Fuel Filter Preheater™ offers a simple solution. It is a thin, flexible, silicone/fiberglass heating pad that easily wraps around the metal filterhousing to maintain full contact and evenly transmit heat quickly. It converts the metal filterhousing into the heating element, acting an electric blanket for the fuel filterhousing. When it is time to change the filter element, the Universal Fuel Filter Preheater™ is easily released for transfer to the new filterhousing. The 4”x7” Preheater draws 85 watts and is available in several voltages. See our website’s Maintenance section for further technical specifications. E-Tip, Inc. also carries the 120v “Peel & Stick” Universal Preheater™ to warm fuel October 2012

Throughout the years, we have had many calls from farmers and contractors desiring a flood pump that would pump 3,000 gallons per minute without exhausting their budget. Two-and-a-half years ago, General Irrigation created the Dyna Flo Pump. We decided it keep it simple using proven technology. The water lube bearings and spiders are similar to what a deep well turbine is built with. The packing box and gland are similar to what a centrifugal pump would use, and the lower end has a greaseable bearing like a turbine pump would. We incorporated an adjustable swivel on the hitch to more easily adapt to ditches, canals and sump holes. Sand collars are used to deflect silt and sand away from the water lube bearing retainers. |

• Frame: 8” square/rectangular tubing • Front hitch: forged steel pintle style with safety chain and jack • Hydraulic depth control valve Elk Creek Welding & Steel Products, Inc. also has bale and portable feeders, panels and fence, feed bins, chutes, tubs, alleys, portable buildings and tree shears.

Starwood Rafters: About the Company Founded in 1964 as a manufacturer of laminated arch rafters and beams, the company started out in Independence, Wisconsin as a three-man operation, with the original owners, Joseph Wozney and his two partners working nights after working their regular jobs. In the early 1970’s, they developed the LamPly Truss. It combines plywood, glulams, and dimensional lumber to make a truss that is stronger than a conventional web truss. This allows the builder to space them further apart to reduce erection time and labor costs. This design also limits bird nesting and improves ventilation in livestock facilities. Today, Corey Wozney and Steve Wozney, Joseph’s sons, operate the company. Starwood Rafters is still in Independence, Wisconsin and now ships its products anywhere in the U.S. For more information, contact Starwood Rafters, Inc., W24141 Starwood Lane, Independence, WI 54747.

» » » Product Spotlight « « « The JackJaw® Extractor Advantage at factory direct introductory pricing of $149 for Fall 2012

Flexxifinger™ is the choice of mechanized farmers worldwide

More than 3,000 JackJaw® extractors are now in use in North America in construction, public works, tent rental, public utilities and farming industries. News of the JackJaw® T-post extractor is spreading quickly across North America and Australia as the easiest, safest and quickest method of fence post pulling. The powerful, patent pending jaw and lever mechanism allows you to pull the T-posts straight out of the ground without damage to the posts. The sturdy lever arm gives you a 9- to 1-mechanical advantage. The specially hardened jaws grip the T-post directly for quick and easy extraction. A 100 lb. push down on the handle generates a 900 lb. upward force and an 1800 lb. gripping force on the T-Post. Tilted posts? No problem! Just lean the JackJaw® extractor to align with the post. It never slips and completely eliminates back and shoulder strain from this ranch problem, that is common with other types of pullers. JackJaw® Model 203 T-post extractors are assembled in Dayton, Ohio from heavy gauge steel plate and tubing, to provide years of reliable service. The unit weighs only 18 lbs. and is plated with zinc and clear chromate for long lasting durability and corrosion resistance. Visit the website at and click on the Fencing Section to see the unit in operation. Enter Fall Coupon Code to get the special price.

Improving tractor comfort and adding value with a new cab interior

On a hot, harvest day in 1998, Dave Dietrich discovered that long, rigid, metal lifters did not work in short, brittle, pulse crops. More lentils were going on the ground than into his combine. He needed to get those lifters off his header and was frustrated with the length of time it took to remove them since they were bolted on from underneath the header. He was losing valuable harvest time. The third advantage is that it can increase the resale value of your tractor by as much as $1,000 or more, by showing that someone has taken care of it.

The first improvement is a quieter cab and improved sound control. With age, dirt and debris harden the foam liner so that sound waves are no longer absorbed, bouncing from cab wall to wall, damaging your hearing.

Our mission is to develop a reliable line of harvest products that are “The Choice of Mechanized Farmers Worldwide™”. For more information, visit us at www., call 800-544-8512 in USA, 800-952-1510 in Canada or fax us at 306642-3520.

• Is short, to reduce the travel time of the crop moving from ground to header

• Is gentle on the combine - the nylon finger will break before the metal lifter breaks causing virtually no damage to the combine

Eliminate the dangerous and dirty manual clean out of headers

New vacuum-formed headliners are now available for the Versatile Series IV, the Case-IH Magnum and Maxuum Series, JD 9600 Combines, JD 8200, the Ford TW 7700 Series, JD 55 & 60 Series, JD 7200, the AGCO 8000 Series and White Series-3 cabs.

• Has a forward-lifting point that is infinitely adjustable so that all the lifters work in unison

Goodwin Industries has a corn header sweep for you

For complete listing, catalogs or prices anytime, call 815-692-3355 or visit www. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

• Uses a nylon “finger” that is gentle on the crop while it lifts the crop and guides it over the knife and into the header

The above criteria produced the Pulse Crop Lifter which is: • Gentle on the crop • Safe and gentle to the combine • Infinitely adjustable • Quick and easy to attach and remove from the header.

EnduraPlas/AgriMaxx of Neche, North Dakota, has further developed its highly successful poly heated water bowl, finetuning its features to make it the most durable, user-friendly, and economical poly heated cattle waterer on the market.

Pictured on the right is a header sweep built and manufactured by Goodwin Industries Inc. of Burns, KS. The header sweep is designed to sweep in down corn, broken stalks, and dry leaf buildup. This in turn eliminates dangerous and dirty manual clean out of the header. This is done with drag arms connected to a crank shaft, which continuously pulls the stalks into the auger.

The Pulse Crop Lifter

ENDURABOWL – The most efficient water bowl of its kind!

The second improvement is a cleaner environment, and increased comfort. If you have to work in the cab all day with walls that are sagging, dirty and rattling, it creates a miserable atmosphere. Often mice nest in the insulation (in combine cabs, especially) and it is necessary to replace all the acoustical panels to get rid of the smell and debris. A new Fehr Cab Kit can improve your workspace immensely. A30

• Uses a system of attaching and removing the lifter that is quick and easy (reducing down time)

Fehr Cab Kits are sold as pre-cut panels in original materials, ready to install in the tractor cabs and come complete with adhesive and instructions. Most farmers can replace their old cab parts with the new kits in one afternoon or one day, depending on which tractor they are working on. Fehr Cab Interiors also installs the kits for customers at their shop or on farmers’ farms so they understand how the panels need to fit.

In side-by-side testing, the EnduraBowl was proven to be 30% more efficient than other leading water bowl brands! Less energy consumption means cattle producers can save money daily by using this model.

If your tractor is ten to fifteen years old, replacing the cab interior with a Fehr Cab Kit has three advantages.

What he needed was a lifter that:

This year will see a limited number of FlexxiFloat™ lifters available. The FlexxiFloat™ is a series of lifters that work well where the ground is rough and rolling. All of our lifters, including those still under development, attach to the header using our patented QD™ technology. As the farmer moves from one crop to another through varying ground conditions, the QD™ attaching system makes it very convenient for the farmer to quickly change lifters to have the best “tool” for the job. We are proud to say that our lifters are used in Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Africa and several countries in Europe.

HD Crop Lifter

The success of the Pulse Crop Lifter in recovering lentils, peas and edible beans convinced farmers and Dietrich that this technology would be equally effective in salvaging cereal crops that had been flattened by heavy rain, strong winds, hail or insect damage and heavy crops like canola which needed a lifter with additional strength to hold the crop above the cutting knife. The HD (heavy duty) Crop Lifter has proven its worth over the last three years. Flexxifinger QD Industries Inc. now produces the Pulse Crop Lifter, the HD Lifter, the MidCut™ lifter and the HighCut™ lifter. We have a lifting pan that can be attached to the Pulse Crop Lifter to help reduce shatter loss.

With this design, the drag arms pull back, pickup, and move forward, set down and pull back again. This unit can be left on and in use at all times. It is not big and bulky and will not hinder good standing corn. You just put it on and let it run. The header sweep is powered by a hydraulic motor connected to the reel drive which allows for variable speed adjustment. Each drag arm is connected to a spring bar, which allows for tension release when necessary. Also, by using a “V” belt drive slippage is possible when needed. The design allows for easy installation on most headers. Contact Goodwin Industries, Inc., 215 West Broadway, Burns, KS 66840, phone: 620726-5281, or

#3. American Eagle: High volume is more important than high pressure. American Eagle puts out only 8 to 9 psi but can supply up to six diffusers. The competition: Diaphragm more pressure, but can only supply a maximum of two diffusers. #4. American Eagle: 8 to 9 psi will supply one diffuser 14 to 16 feet. The competition: Diaphragms will pump deeper but with very little volume of air. The deeper you pump, the less volume. #5. American Eagle: Bellow warranty, five years. The competition: Diaphragm warranty–ZERO! #6. American Eagle: 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1-year warranty with an emailed picture of the defective part–and it ships out FREE the same day. The competition: Diaphragm warranty policy states the part may need to be shipped from as far away as Canada to be evaluated–then determined if it is the customers fault. Any new part will be shipped at the customer’s expense for parts, plus shipping both ways. (This can take months. We know a Diaphragm customer still waiting over a year.)

Flock Buster has many uses outside of the agricultural industry as well. The product has proven to be an essential part of an effective wildlife management program assisting airports with bird control. Flock Buster is also useful in eliminating birds at landfills, golf courses, marinas, parks and any other outdoor recreational areas.

Over 20 years ago Jim Strauss suffered a major heart attack and was told he would need bypass surgery or he would die.

For more information on Flock Buster, visit the company’s website at www.flockbuster. com or call 877-NO-CROWS.

Jim was born into a family of herbalists stretching back to the 17th century. He learned these crafts during childhood, gathering medicinal herbs in the Austrian countryside with his grandmother. He was taught that tasting herbs could detect their medicinal value, but balance and proportion were the keys to producing formulas that were effective and immediate. Jim’s heart attack was not a fluke. He admits to having lived in the fast lane, ignoring the healthier lifestyle of his parents. He considers himself fortunate as nearly half of first time heart attacks end in death. Relying on knowledge acquired over the years, he refused the recommended surgery and instead put together an herbal formula which he immediately applied to himself with outstanding results.
