I have two trailer house frames, would make a great bridge deck, or cattle guards with a little work. They are 70' long. I would like to donate them someone in the fire area that could use them and benefit from them. They are located in Hysham, MT and would need to be hauled. I can be contacted at jomt41@gmail.com.

How do you donate directly to the state fire fund so it can help multiple places? I've been wanting to start a donation page or gofund me that goes directly to the state fund.

Is there something else but hay. That we can bail that will make good food for the cattle.

Living in the north corner of ND and don't think there is lots of spare hay.

But can maybe bail other stuff.

Is there anything that would make good food after the combine ??

Winter Wheat Seedings Estimate Lowest in Over a Century

1/14/2018 6:42:00 PM
The report Friday showed 32.61 million acres planted. That was in fact down from last year, but more than 300,000 acres larger than the average trade guess and above all published trade guesses. This was the first time since 2012 for the USDA figure to be larger than the average trade estimate. It was only the second time since 2000, with the other being 2011.

So what happened, and are there any implications? >> Read More
