Jada: Rained out

Jada: Rained out

Hoffman Harvesting just got rained out. Yesterday our crew that was cutting in Lemmon moved back to Gettysburg to began cutting spring wheat, while the crew on the farm was able to start harvesting our spring wheat. Unfortunately, things were put to a stop as we are getting rained out in both places. In Bowdle they  were cutting wheat yielding in the 40’s with and a test weight of 60 prior to the rainfall. The protein was 15.

Since I was unable to be in the field, here are some random photos I haven’t posted as of yet.

    Very interesting work. Do you have posts on here that give more information about what happens during the off-season? Thanks for such vivid and compelling writing and photos.

    Hi Jada,

    I have a question about how you transport equipment.

    What length is the entire unit when there’s a truck, combine / trailer, and either a grain trailer or header / trailer? I see from the pics that some of your grain trailers are different lengths. Do you have to “double back” for much equipment?

    I used to harvest and actually parked equipment in the same lot with you all in Roosevelt, OK. We usually pulled combines with a tandem truck but know that is kind of the old style now. Any info about your methods for transporting all the equipment would be interesting. You have a very nice looking crew…good luck!
