Fence do you guys drive tpost by hand or use a post driver on a tractor? Lookin good btw!


Sometimes push em with the bucket. Sometimes we use a pneumatic driver. But usually we drive the tpost by hand. It's generally less trouble than dragging around the driver compressor and hose. And their not that hard to drive with the right driver. Me and my son drove approx. 175 Monday by ourselves with plenty of day to spare.
You can't buy a good driver you have to make it. I'll post a pic when I have 3 days to spare.

For the pipe you gotta have equipment. I've gotta a manual driver for when maybe we just have a few to drive. It'll make a old man outta you.

Awoke to a text from our neighbor about a gate along the road that was open ... thank goodness all the heifers were still on our farm!

Checked on the fall recips.

Drove to a lunch meeting with a possible new client.

To the office ... paid bills and thought about a few things that need doing, but needed some thinking first.

Chatted with a breeder in France.

Drove home.

Finally got to finishing a working pen. I started it in February, just today I was hanging gates. We will be running 50 or so through it on Saturday. It's not perfect but a big improvement from what we've been doing.

By golly, I messed with post an image long enough and it let me post this, I think. Not the one I wanted, but it's a top hinge.

We had a crash test today. It wasn't quite as spectacular as these, but it was similar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YhniFLrIQI
