Re: Deere 4440
Hello John,

You have a great pictures :-) and good explanations with
them +++. People should take a hint of You.

...and the best tractors!

Re: Deere 4440
Thanks J.J. We used have many other and much bigger tractors
but unfortunately, we have been forced to scale our
operation back drastically over the last 20 years. We
stopped row-cropping about 5 years ago and now we just grow
some small grains (oats, wheat and brown-top millet) and
raise cattle. At one time we farmed about 2,000 acres of
soybeans, 1,000 acres of grain sorghum and another 6-800
acres of wheat. I have my own company now away from the farm
but I still like to get dirty and run those Deeres when I
can get away and dad needs a break. It doesn’t really matter
what color tractor you like because the love of farming
really transcends all of that. To me it’s all about the
sense of accomplishment, knowing you did an honest days work
and knowing that what you have acheived is something very
few people in the World will ever experience. Although I
don’t actively farm anymore, the lessons I learned growing
up farming have indeed been a blessing. Take care.
Re: Deere 4440

I agree w/J.J. I think alot of people should read your post,
maybe it would stop all these stupid color wars. Anyway, how
many acres do you guys farm now?

Re: Deere 4440
We no longer row-crop Lance. Our farm is about 1800 acres
and we lease another 7-800 or so acres for beef production.
We raise about 3-400 acres of small grains like oats and
wheat each year...mostly for seed and feed. Some of the 1800
acres that we own is farmed by my uncle who raises cotton,
corn and peanuts but no cattle.
Re: Deere 4440
my uncle and aunt farm about 2,400 acres, consisting of
corn, wheat , soybeans, tobacco, and some cotton. They also
have a few head of cattle, I don't recall exactly how many
though. Take care.

Re: Deere 4440
Hey Lance,

Why does your uncle farm so many diffirent crops? And also
the rest of you guys over there. I mean, you'll probably
need alot of diffirent machines to get it all harvested. And
those machines are not cheap at all(?) :-P

We in Holland mostly farm only one crop, often some corn for
feeding the cattle. Just currious. :-)

Re: Deere 4440
Hi Frank,

My uncle uses larger machinery than other guys here w/the
same acreage to get his crop in. Use the combine (Gleaner
R62) to harvest the corn, wheat and soybeans. Our growing
season allows us not to have to harvest corn and soybeans at
the same time. Harvest wheat starting in late May on through
June. Tobacco in July and into August. Corn in late August
into September. And soybeans in October and November, and
sometimes into December. Plus we have good help, so that
doesn't hurt.:-D For our tobacoo, we use a self-propleed
tobacco harvester. I will look for a pic of a tobacco
harvester to show you what they look like.

John, did you guys get any rough weather lasty night? We are
going to get it here in N.C. today. Take care guys.

Re: Deere 4440
Hi Lance. Sorry about the delayed answer but the night you
are questioning, I was in Atlanta for the Supercross at the
Georgia Dome. That was awesome! I never knew those guys were
so fast...just unbelievable. It was nasty in the ATL the
entire weekend so I know we got some bad weather here in
Montgomery as well. We’re only about 2 hours away from
Atlanta. Take care.
