Ag In Motion!. Next week who is going and when?

SASKFARMER3's Avatar Jul 11, 2018 | 06:50 1 Spraying is going to be done or just quitting. park the sprayer step back from it, hands off the throttle put the chemical back in the shed. Walk away.

I did my part for crop 2018 now its time to let the big guy upstairs take the rains, (Yes I spelled it wrong its a joke) and handle the outcome of crop 18.

I like farm shows as a way to visit with friends and family and meet new people. This year we are checking out wheat varieties for a replacement next year of AC Brandon.

Also, flaman has an auger vs a conveyor on the bagger so maybe canola bagging at home will work better. Less spillage etc.

Field demo I am curious on the Salford and the protill for units plus maybe the Bourg.

Is bourg done and will be owned by Shawn, I think it will happen.

Tickets online and some chem reps and banks and elevators and dealers have some free ones.

I doubt it. Saskatoon has a lot of hotels but there are so many evening functions plus Taste of Saskatchewan is on so likely really busy and expensive.
Langham and Radisson have small cheap motels. Camping another option. Reply With Quote

Unfortunately tied up for aim but would like to attend for shits and giggles. Been offered by a couple companies I deal with to jump on the bus. For us northerners langham is more convenient as Regina is at the other end of the world lol. That said any of these “informative” events are mental candy and nothing more. It’s all to sell something and if you’re in the market that’s fine. I find as I get older my bs meter gets more sensitive and these sorts of events don’t interest me much. I’d sooner save my time and money and spend a few minutes here and there talking to govt agronomists on the phone. They usually have impartial data to back up what they say. Reply With Quote
farmaholic's Avatar Jul 15, 2018 | 19:06 15 Fuck...is Tuesday going to be hot for both AIM and the IHARF field day at Indian Head. Better think about taking an umbrella to either to keep the sun off. When are Western Canadian farmers going to smarten up and start wearing full wide brim hats? Break the old and start the new trend....there are some real stylish looking hats.

Mallee, do you wear a full brim hat or the ball cap? Reply With Quote
fjlip's Avatar Jul 15, 2018 | 20:13 16 Wednesday in T'oon, AIM, 28C and sunny, chance of T-Storm. Oh well normal summer day. Take sunscreen, hat and duck into tents sometime. Coop taking a bus, no stress, free admin, free food, all on Dekalb, Bayer-santo. Actually cost us $1000's! Reply With Quote

Jul 17, 2018 | 19:58 19 How is the show?

Any air conditioned cool areas? Reply With Quote
Jul 17, 2018 | 20:49 20 The plots have hail damage. Makes it sorta harder to compare different varieties etc. Obviously no ones fault just woulda been nice to know it hailed there. Doubt we would have gone if we had know that.
Otherwise the show was ok. Reply With Quote

farmaholic's Avatar Jul 17, 2018 | 21:41 22 We opted for the Indian Head Agricultural Reasearch Foundation field day today. They only highlight some of the trials at the field day. Lots of interesting and good work being done there. It was a long hot day, but they gave out lots of cold bottled water and fed us lunch and supper. It was also their 25th anniversary this year.

There has been criticism of where our commodity check off dollars get spent....some of those check off dollars are supporting some research at IHARF. Reply With Quote
SASKFARMER3's Avatar Jul 17, 2018 | 22:05 23 Iharf does a great Job I can’t believe it’s 25 years.

I opted for AIM.

Great hit day and crops aren’t to hit all way north . Heat starting to really show up.

It’s a bin buster. HaName:  812E04F5-36A7-42D7-BA83-CEA7CAFD5C9B.jpg

farmaholic's Avatar Jul 17, 2018 | 22:26 24 Our worst sand "spots" are beginning to fry.
Our whole crop could use a good shot of rain....but no matter what happens between now and harvest I still think our yeilds will be ahead of last year(on our farm)
Surprisingly though, our crops on average are taller than the plot crops at the research farms. We've had nearly double their rain fall this growing season. There are some wide cracks in that heavy clay soil already. Reply With Quote
SASKFARMER3's Avatar Jul 18, 2018 | 05:28 25 Take a drive up to Saskatoon and then come south to swift.

Yea its a bumper on its way.

Laugh laugh laugh.
