• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

Yep. G-kids and G-parents get along great. They share a natural enemy. -- J

Larry,
What does each of those bales weigh? I'm guessing that's around 70 bales. 5000/70 = ~72#.

Bob

They are between 80 lb to 100 lb My average hits in the 90s lb per bale .


This year I have sold some that weighed 120 lb . The bales were high in case when stripped . . I made some bales light to keep my average below 100 lbs .

When I unload these small bales at the contract station . They place 8 of them on each basket and bands them together . If they average over 800 lbs they reject the basket of tobacco .

I have hauled over 10,000 pounds on that trailor a few times .

ugh. I think I missed out on the plants too. I got very busy with school. I wanted 5 bright leaf and 5 Turkish. Does anyone want to sell a few seedlings? I would be willing to try something new. I am in San Antonio and I smoke cigarettes.

Howdy Larry,

What type of baler do you use? They look good!

Great. Is this just Burley and Virginia or you have other tobacco to offer?
That load is burley in three stalk positions . Each bale is only one stalk position . Bottom of the stalk next is mid stalk and the top is the darker red tips .

I have alot of tobacco to list .
