Diamond J Custom Farming & Dairy
The shop is booming with activity. Preventative maintenance is key to the longevity and productivity of our equipment.
Things are coming to a close out in the field. Now we have a line of equipment to clean and maintain.
Sudan grass is coming off today. A nice change of pace for the team after over two months of corn harvest.
"Feeling bad about breaking up? We don't..." Diamond J Farming in full swing.
Making a split, now that is skill.
Another Day in Paradise!!
Recycling your slurry is a fantastic way to capture the nutrients that would otherwise be at the bottom of your lagoon. Applying slurry through spray allows a thin layer to be evenly distributed & shorter dry time, which means you can get in & work the field sooner.
Walls are a great way to reduce silage footprint, increase the density & reduce shrink. Side by side bunks give you the opportunity to seal & preserve multiple piles in a smaller area for use throughout the year without compromising quality.
Getting ready for big time Earlage harvest.
Modified drive over pile gets more in a smaller footprint without sacrificing density. Monitoring chop quality and processing throughout harvest is critical.
#1 home made silage truck!
As you can see the float method allows a clear cleaner picture of how well the processing is being done.
