Steph: Back in the swing of things

Seeing as the last couple days were filled with lots of “pickup farming”, we couldn’t be happier to be back harvesting today. We got going around 4 p.m. this afternoon and went strong till well past midnight thanks to our trusty elevator in Lone Wolf, Okla. The moisture averaged 13 percent with a fluctuating test weight around 60 pounds.

It’s almost a chain reaction when one field gets going, the domino effect occurs and soon enough each field along that mile road has combines rolling in them as well. Also, as you will see in the photos below, we made a new furry friend!

    Hi, found your daily activites yesterday. Enjoying what you are doing. Harry and I were raised on farms and harvest was a big time. We enjoyed it and had combines that were pulled with tractor. harrys dad had the fancy ones with cab, ha. it is a great time and I am sure you see places and enjoy most people do not.
    We live between winfield and arkansas city ,ks. have not started cutting here but looks like the guys will be soon. We do not farm,but really watch what is going on. I hear there may be cutting west of us in sumner county. we are in cowley county. Take care. Love your new friend. sharon drake

      Not a dumb question, the rsoean we do that sometimes is since the grain cart is already pulled up and unloading into the semi, we have found it easier and more time efficient to unload into the grain cart rather than wait for it to be done and moved.

    I have a dumb question. I’m not a farmer, although I own one, if that makes sense. It’s 600 miles away and we rent it out. Anyway, why dump from the combine into the bin on the tractor, rather than directly into the semi? I understand when you’re in the field why you would go into the tractor bin, but why when stopped?

    I see that sometimes the semis run right beside the combine taking the load. I assume that is only possible in certain conditions.
