Our farm in 1998
In 1998 a Co-op student from the Netherlands worked at our
farm during the summer. He made a report for school and took
some nice pics. Decided to post them.
In 1998 we only had 1 barn and no house by the barn.

in 1998 hadden we een stageloper van nederland die aardig
wat mooie fotos voor z'n stageverslag had gemaakt.
In 1998 hadden we nog maar 1 stal en nog geen huis bij de

The other side. The milk parlour is to the left.

De andere kant. De melkstal is aan de linkerkant.
Re: Our farm in 1998
The milkhouse with the milktruck from 1998. This was a
little bunksilo for highmoisture corn, the wall on the left
has been removed to join 2 together for a larger single bunk
for haylage. Also shows a few hutches, got at least 3 times
as many now. Also shows our old pickup. a 1993 GMC sierra

Dit is de voorkant van de melkstal. De sleufsilo was voor de
korrelmais, maar de linkermuur is sindsdien gesloopt om een
grote silo te maken voor luzerne. Staan ook een paar iglos,
nu hebben we minstens 3 keer zo veel. kan ook de oude pickup
zien. een 1993 GMC sierra 4x4.

Harvesting corn silage in 1998. This is our NH 8160 with our
imported Veenhuis dumptrailer. The harvester is a Claas 820
which was new that year, it belongs to Claussen Farms. They
still have it.

Mais hakselen in 1998. Dit is onze NH 8160 trekker met
geimporteerde Veenhuis kipper. De hakselaar is van Claussen
Farms, een loonwerker in deze buurt, het is een Claas 820
die toen nieuw was.

NH 166 inverter which belonged to my uncle behind a
neighbour's tractor. We later bought our own, but sold it a
year later for an H&S Hydraswing merger.

Dit is een New Holland 166 inverter van mijn oom achter de
trekker van mijn buurman. De inverter gooit een zwad luzerne
op het volgende zwad zonder de bladen van de luzerne af te
Re: Our farm in 1998
Here is a combination of american equipment and european
farming methods. This is my neighbours NH 900 pull-type
harvester behind his Case-IH 3394 blowing into our Veenhuis
dumptrailer. We only did this with alfalfa.

Hier is een kombinatie van amerikaanse machines en europeese
manier van werken. NH 900 getrokken hakselaar van mijn
buurman achter zijn Case-IH 3394 die in onze veenhuis kipper
blaast. Dit hebben we allleen maar met luzerne gedaan.
Re: Our farm in 1998
Packing with the Manitou MT845 telehandler which we imported
from the netherlands. They are actually built in France and
there is a dealer near Toronto, but it was cheaper to import
it ourselves.

Aanrijden met de manitou MT845 die we van nederland hadden
geimporteerd. Was goedkoper om er een uit nederland te halen
dan om er een hier te kopen.

Re: Our farm in 1998
This is our commodity shed. Won an award in 1997 for best
new feed storage facility in Ontario. Designed to allow full
length trucks to dump and keep the rain out at the same
This is the last pic in this series. Questions and comments
are welcome.

Dit is de "commodity shed", lose produkten kunnen door
vrachtautos erin gekipt worden en blijven droog. In 1997
hebben we een prijs ervoor gekregen omdat dit de beste nieuw
gebouwde voer opslag gebouw in Ontario was.
Dit is de laatste foto in deze reeks.
Re: Our farm in 1998
Looks like you got chores done today. Looks a little
different today around your place, a few more buildings and
so forth. Still nice to see these. I can remember the first
year that Claussens rented their harvester (Claas 695 Mega).
That thing was always plugged up with alfalfa that was
sticky and also with corn silage and the odd time with
cobmeal too.

Re: Our farm in 1998
Things have always been changing since then. Never saw the
harvester Claussens rented. van Nuland did our corn in 1997.
4th cut of 2004 I really got to know the inside of one of
their harvesters, it still had some old corn in the spout
and was plugging up all the time.
Re: Our farm in 1998

Nice Pics. Nice too see the efforts of hard work are paying
off for you guys!! Keep the pics coming!! Just curious
though, no house, where did you live untill the house was


Was that a problem with that particular harvester? Or just a
real bad day?

Thanks & Take care,

Re: Our farm in 1998
That was a particular problem with that model since the
blower was much narrower than they are now.

Re: Our farm in 1998
mooie fotos gerard
als je er nog meer heb zien we ze graag

Re: Our farm in 1998
We had a 100+ year old house on the land that we bought.
Lived there until december 24 1999, that's when we moved
into the new house. Now we have 4 100+ year old houses. 2
rented out to personnel and the other 2 rented out to the
previous owner of the farm.
Re: Our farm in 1998
Mooi; :-)

Ik ben het volledig eens met GreenRider. ;-)
Re: Our farm in 1998
That commodity shed is certainly impressive ours is 20 years
old and not designed for modern lorries, if we built a new
one though it has to be completely rat and bird proof which
isnt very practicle
