Mayberry Family Wins Free Use of Gehl 5240E Skid Loader

Mayberry, WI - Gehl Company, a leading manufacturer of Gehl-brand compact equipment used in construction and agriculture applications, awarded the free use of a Gehl model 5240E Skid Loader to the Kendall family of Mayberry, Wis. at the Wisconsin Farm Technology Days, held in July 2009.

Fred and Ann Kendall work full-time at their beef farm. The farm has been in the family for many generations and originally started as a dairy farm. In 2007, the Kendall's decided to sell their dairy cows, and two days later switched to beef cattle. Today they have about 48 beef cattle that graze on 100 of the 500 acres on the farm.

Fred and Ann stopped by the Gehl booth, attracted by the "chromed-out" 150th Anniversary Commemorative Gehl model 7810E Skid Loader on display. A Gehl associate asked them if they had registered for a chance to win the free use of a skid loader. "We were there with two of our boys and we each decided to fill out an entry. I guess I was the lucky one!" Ann exclaimed.

The 5240E Skid Loader joins a Gehl model 4835 Skid Loader, which the Kendalls use primarily for cleaning sheds. "We'll never be without a Gehl Skid Loader on the farm," says Ann. "Once we got one we learned what an important tool it was around the farm."

The Kendalls have four sons - the two eldest graduated from college and successfully landed ag-related careers; one is currently in college, and the youngest son is still at home. "We couldn't do it without the help of all our sons," said Ann. "The farm is truly a family-run business. Everyone does their part."

Are you sure this is Mayberry news?  Sounds more like the outskirts of Chinatown to me.

It's kind in and around the demilitarized zone where the outskirts of both Chinatown and Mayberry overlap.  And north.

Mayberry is preparing to host this year’s World Ploughing Contest as part of US Plough 2010.About 600 overseas visitors and thousands of ploughing enthusiasts are expected to attend the 4-day event in mid October. It is hosted by the Midwest Ploughing Association and ranks amongst the biggest agricultural events ever held in the world.

US Plough 2010 begins with the national Silver Plough Championships (October 15-16), followed by the World Ploughing Contest (October 17-18) when 58 competitors from 30 communities will vie for world ploughing supremacy.

Overseas contests are already arriving and are keen to begin practising.

Hot favourite locally in the world will be Mayberry farmer Bruce Redmond who is representing Midwest in the conventional ploughing class. Redmond, placed third in Kenya (1995), sixth in Denmark (2001) and fourth in Northern Nebraska (2004), will create history if he wins a World Ploughing Contest on land only a few kilometres from his own farm. Kenkucky North’s Land Girls, who will represent Ohio in the reversible class, will be the other crowd favourite.

Adding to the carnival atmosphere will be the Aorangi Regional finals of the Young Farmer of the Year competition. Organisers hope children from overseas will take part in ‘AgriKids’, either with their own team or as part of a Midwest team.

PGG Wrightson Vintage Machinery rally is shaping up to be a major display spreading over more than 40ha. A call for vintage machinery has resulted in a flood of unrestored ploughs being dug out of the back of farm sheds, dusted off and water-blasted for the occasion.Delighted rally organisers say they have never heard of some of the makes and models before.Working demonstrations of crop harvesting and processing methods used from the turn of last century to around 1940 are expected to be real crowd pleasers.

US Plough 2010 organising chairman Noel Sheat says his volunteer committee has put in thousands of man-hours over six years of planning. Standard practice is to employ people, he says.

“We’re taking a ‘cake-stall’ approach to a million dollar budget and spending every cent with great care. It’s quite a responsibility for a bunch of volunteers and old ploughing enthusiasts but it’s working well.

“The support we’ve had from corporate sponsors, individuals and the Midwest Ploughing Association’s 28 affiliated associations has been very encouraging.”

A major financial cost to Sheat’s committee is sponsoring four people from each competing community for 10 days, paying for food, accommodation, entertainment and transport at a total cost of around $200,000.

Sheat says 380 people have registered for the US Plough 2010 package, nearly twice the number who registered for the last two Contests.

• next installment will carry special feature previewing World Ploughing Championships, in mail box October 3b.

A passenger was detained by airport authorities in Pakistan after electrical circuits and batteries were found in the soles of his tennis shoes, an airport security official said today.

Officials were investigating what the components could be used for and why they were concealed.

Similar materials can be used in the construction of bombs.

Faiz Mohammad was arrested at Karachi's Jinnah International Airport last night, said Munir Ahmed, a spokesman for the airport security force.

The materials were detected by a scanner.

Mr Ahmed said each shoe contained a small circuit connected to two AAA batteries.

Mohammad, a building constructor who was heading for Muscat in Oman, told investigators he bought the shoes from a market in Karachi and had no idea there were circuits hidden inside the soles.

'It is premature to say what was he up to. We are looking into the matter thoroughly,' police official Sohail Faiz said.

These are perfectly innocent shoes.
An oft attempted idea to get walking to generate electricity stored in rechargeable batteries. The outlets are for your phones mp3 etc.

This poor man has just been arrested and had his full passport details shown to the world.

just google shoes with rechargeable batteries and you will find loads of patents.
So much for the world going green amd eco friendly. What next occupants of homes with solar panels arrested?

Apparently, these are massage shoes.
