What's that thing?

Went searching around our 20 acres we didn't even realize we were renting until a month ago
Found a lot of metal and junk, and even a foundation. Someone said it was a cotton gin or storage building. So what is all this stuff for or from?

A conveyor of some kind.


What kind of truck was this?


I guess this was on the truck.


No idea what it used to say.


Searched and couldn't find anything about the company.


Had a pipe thread fitting in the top, connected to a nozzle inside with a float valve to shut it off. A waterer?

Don't know if you'd want to look up the history of the property. That might shed some light on what some that might be. Just a thought.

How would I go about that?
The only thing I know is what the old lady said about it being a gin or storage.

I didn't show up with food, and they didn't like that.





Pollen tastes good?








Then they gave up.

You could check the county records office for ownership records, tax records and see what name or company previously owned the property

That top piece looks like a piece of a corn sheller conveyor.

Be careful with those stinking horses and truck paint. I learned the hard way on my '97 when I was dropping off round bales that they like to gnaw on the hood...all the way to the metal.

Kinda like me chewing my fingernails. Just keep going and going and going and . . . . oh crap.

Seems easy enough. Didn't know if they'd actually show you that kinda stuff or not.

A conveyor was all I figured. The area, now anyway, is predominately chickens and timber with cattle, but not any farming at all. Which is kinda strange to me.





I'll be getting back out there off and on, mainly for fun, but it's interesting too.
I started cutting a path from about 100yds or so away just so I don't have to go through barbed wire. Just something easier to walk through because it's thick woods.
After that, I'd really like to get a tractor out there and make short work of it.
