Jada: A fly by harvest day

Jada: A fly by harvest day

Sometimes the days just fly by during harvest. Today was one of them. In addition to our usual servicing routine, this morning was spent getting fuel, taking a truck in to get the air conditioner repaired and patching the flat front tire on the combine.

We got a late start in the fields because of moisture but temperatures up to 99◦ helped the wheat dry out quickly. For the first time since we have been here, we weren’t even pushing the moisture max. We were even cutting wheat with single digit moisture. Due to this factor, we were able to get in a longer day of cutting.

The culprit to our tire problem is pictured top left. Today was the first time I didn’t have my video camera in tow with me and I really wished I had it. Johnny of Holub Tires came out and repaired our tire in no time. Along with some of our crew, he was assisted by a hand-held remote which moved an arm where the tire was chained to. It was neat to watch. You can always tell when someone has done a particular job before and Johnny certainly has!
