At the show in Portland had some steam traction engines. This is a 40 HP Case pulling a 5 bottom plow. You can dance to the sound when a steam engine is under load. They also had a Port Huron running the saw mill. The other picture is of a corn field close to the last covered bridge we stopped at. I'm amazed of the size of stalk but only 2 ears of corn. Makes me wonder with all the genetics they do why they have never come up with a stalk with more than two ears. Every once in awhile you see 3.

Two ears is all you need for stereophonic reception. I believe the rest of the plant has as much value for chopping into silage for [milk] cows to munch on. More ears if wider spacing, but tonnage per acre for silage use weighs in more than ears.

Great pics Wayne, I thought the one with the corn was an old one for a minute.
Thanks,

Makes sense. They have cut there corn around here and several balled the stalks.
