Meanwhile Back at the NCRS:

So while I was sightseeing in North Dakota, things were happening back at the NCRS. On Wednesday Doug brought back the tank for the new Hagie sprayer from Illinois. On Thursday, with the help of the Track Hoe that was there for building construction, the tank was lifted off of the trailer, guided over to the Hagie by Doug.... and carefully loaded onto the Hagie.

Here is what it looked like this morning. It will take a bit of work to get in plumbed in, and we have some cool plans for how it will work. But I will hold off on talking more about it until we know it works!

Here is Tim working on the Monosem. It is almost ready for the year. You can see the new tongue on it that replaced the 3-point system.

What's this? More new building??? I've shown some pictures of our shop and it is usually quite crowded. In addition to the usual farm equipment in for revisions and repairs, there are often things like tanker trailers and building projects for the Ashley plant in there as well. So expansion was needed, and that is what is going on here.

With expansion of business, we need to expand to meet new demands, and that is what we do here at the NCRS. I think it's shaping up to be a great year at the NCRS.
