13 Jul Jada: Cutting in Kanarado once again!
We didn’t get a full day in but progress is progress. Moisture is definitely an issue in Kanarado, Kansas. Yield is not. The field we were cutting was ranging from 70 to 90 bu/ ac. Protein is 12 and test weights are 58 to 60.
This morning while we were playing the waiting game, we received a visit from Rick and Jodi Sugden of Sugden Harvesting. They were heading to Colorado. We hope that we too will be heading to Limon soon. We also visited with Janelle and Shanee Popwell today. It’s always fun to have visits from fellow harvesters! Here are some photos of our day……
Here I come face to face with the neighbors…. See the difference in colors? The wheat that is. Well, I guess you can say the equipment too. Some Case IH combines taking advantage of their GPS/ Auto Steer too.
What I am digging today….. The kids of Peterson Farms and Paplow Harvestings ability to embrace the rain and enjoy it! Rain has been plentiful in Goodland- we have received around 6 inches in the past three days. This evening, the humidity was at 100%. Right now it is misting out and very foggy. I wish the rain would subside just long enough for us to get done with the Goodland harvest.
