Yes I know acres are area.....


but if you took 12.5 acres and square rooted it you would get 3.5...


so therefore 3.5 acres X 3.5 acres.....nvm if you don't get what I am saying...lol

it seems my inquiry has sparked an unintended debate. Hope I didn't cause any hard feelings between you 2. IF so, i offer my apologies. Howver, if anyone does have bens ear(so to speak of course) would u be kind enough to ask him? It's not gonna end the world if I don't know, am just curious. I was figurein the large mountain field had to be a couple hundred acres, merely becuase on the slowest game setting(60 mins= 1 day) it takes about 3 days just to combine that field. Just my thoughts there.

I think someone figured it out one time and there was only 60 acres of 3.66, I don't know about V4 but it can't be much more.

I would think that V4 would be more than that because I figure mountain has to be between 75 and 100 acres and the rest between 15 and 45 acres.

well my farm have almost 1000 acres.
almost 100 acres are for growing wheat and rice, and the rest is pasture for the cows.
but near my farm is another one that is much bigger the have almost 200 acres for corn silage and hay silage, and almost 2500 cows producing milk.

Here near Pewamo, Michigan (USA), Steenblik Dairy Inc. farms around 4500 acres and milks arond 4000 head of cattle on non-stop milking. I would guess. Thats the bggest around here. Up by St Louis, Michigan, his cousin has a farm thats bigger. Aother farm northwest ofIonia makes Steenblik's look sick. Mostly 80-200 acr farms though.

Not tryin to get ahold of him, actually have his E-mail. I just asked cause I have been up there to see him a time or 2 since we got outta the Army. Wasn't a ton of agriculture up that way, but I thought I'd ask, since I have been in that region of the state.
