They allways seem to follow it around when I have a 1,800 lb+ Bale of hay on the forks. Little foggy this morning feeding the cows. Lots of horns but they are nice coys as long as there fed. Mark H.

Your tractor looks alot like mine. I have an International Harvester B275. What kind is the one in the picture?

It is a 1969 Massey Ferguson 135 Orchard with a 3 cyl Perkins Gas engine. The rear tires are filled and weigh about 800 lbs each. Needed to get around in the snow and to plow with. Mark H.

can't see a lot in the pic but are they scotch highlanders?

The closes one is a Long Horn but the others are Scottish Highlanders. This is Jake the Bull but his horns are over 3 ft across now and much bigger! Mark H.

I believe you could drag that bale behind an AMC Gremlin and they'd love that as well. (GRIN)
In the summer when we cut corn stalks the steers can't decide if they should try to roll the wagon or climb onboard.
If you ever figure out a way to train just one of them to go fetch the bales in the worst weather, let me know.

You should see them if I don't unload the hay fast enought. They start sticking there horns into the bale and lifting up on it to flip it off. Our bull can lift the bale off the ground just playing with it. Not the whole thing but one end. Mark H.

I respect the cows and realy respect the Bulls! The 2 bulls are not small anymore and one has a 3 ft spread of horns and they stick forward. They challenge the tractor when in there pen. So I have to wait till they move. When the cows are in heat they get wound up pretty good! Mark H.

That is on of the many enjoyable things I like about the farm is feeding and watching the cattle. I even like doing it in the snow but fortunatley I do not have the opportunity to feed in the snow as much as you do. Sometimes I almost wish we would get snowed in for awhile but I try to be careful what I wish for.

It is fun to watch the calves jump around when the hay comes out. The storm let up so I cleared around the feeder and brought the hay outside for them. Keeps the barn cleaner. Mark H.

Speaking of cows loving a tractor, they can love it in a different way too.A farmer had a farm auction where he had listed a MH55, but the grazers chewed off the plug wires so the fact that the tractor ran was only on his word.It sold @ 350$, the guy that bought put new wires and resold it for 1200$ so love comes in different forms.Dan on Alberta

I won't leave mine in the feild alone for long they come up and start rubbing on it. When they get to working there horns into the radiator it is a different story then the problems happen. Mark H.
