New Mix Mill
I went ahead and picked up an old New Holland Mix Mill last weekend. It was at a good price of $400. I haven't seen one in any condition for less than $1000 so I jumped at it. It was through a friend of a friend so I know what I am getting into. It needs some ducting, but that is easily fixed with some stove pipe and some fittings that I already have in the barn. It also needs to be thoroughly cleaned out. Having sat out in the rain and snow for a year, it shows some signs of rusting around the clean outs. I will clean it up and get it running and then park it in the barn for the rest of it life. It should last me until I am ready to retire from farming (no time soon I hope).
