The Wheat Harvest wasn't too good around here it seems. A lot of fields
looked pretty thrashed from the hail and isolated flooding. But then again
last year several people were being docked for water content. Not sure how
bad it was this year (2014). Least I didn't have custom cutters try to run
me over on the sand roads up north along Kiowa county and Pratt county this

I'm from central Kansas as well and I work as a farm hand during harvest.
You have no clue how cool it is to me that you guys are doing this. I love
harvest and the farm; and I'm not even doing it on a daily basis. It's just
nice to see that someone else enjoys it as much as I do and that they are
sharing it.

Thanks so much for sharing. I was very blessed by your presentation My
family was originally from the central Nebraska area and know all about
wheat farming (and corn). I am from So Cal coast and just know of it :)
through family stories of the farm days. I have been back to the mid west
many times and enjoy the quieter "community farm life” of neighbors helping
and watching for one another. Blessings!

I would have through the favorite part for all of you would be "the end" ,
not that you did not enjoy it , but that it s "safe", it s money in the
bank and you don't have to look over your shoulder for the storm .
You said that you were 11%,3% below max moisture levels , what is that 1/2
a day to a day, lost . Can you not test on the farm and get started
earlier, or do they have to see it at the elevator ?

Author Gripnok (1 year)
Why do you have to bale so quickly? Why couldn't the baler come by the
next day or something? Does it have something to do with the moisture?

We usually use a product like Achieve, Attain, or Caramba when we spray our
wheat anyway. If you would like, come to the Ag College at the University
of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada and talk to the head
plant breeders there, and see what they have to say about modern plants and
plant genetics.

Yeah my bad, I should have made myself more clear there. We stopped farming
a good number of years ago so it's starting to leave my mind. We were just
vegetable farmers so there weren't many tasks that had to be done all at
one time.

Author Prsnsfrms (2 years)
Thanks for the reply. i have familiarity with weight restrictions on bigger
trucks and trailers from working on larger farms, going onwheat harvest,
and over the road trucking with hoppers. I wasnt familiar with the little
short trailers on their capacities and weight but i have found some of what
ive been looking for. we have little driveways and narrow roads to access
them from i thought something like a little trailer would be easier for
family members that are not used to big trailers.
