Hoffman Harvesting continues to cut in Pratt, Kan. The wheat yields are ranging from 35 to 60 bu/ac. because the area received scattered rain showers. These rains made all the difference in farmer’s yields this year. Some hail and strong wind  between Sawyer and Iuka had an even greater affect on some wheat yields- the wheat essentially shattered.

The other day we received a visit from John Deere friends in the field. The group consisted of AMS consultants from our dealership network C&B Operations. AMS stands for Agriculture Management Systems and includes all the technologies in John Deere equipment such as guidance systems (GPS), Green Star displays, receivers and signals. The group’s goal was to do research on the new technology in the machines to stay abreast and see the technology in action first hand. We enjoy having company in the field. One of our visitors was Duane Simon who happens to live close to our home town.

What I am digging today…… visiting the Schemper girls and boy of Jerrad and Dawn from Schemper Harvesting (pronounced Skemper) based out of Holdredge, NE. It’s always fun to visit with harvest friends. These are the moments that make harvest.

    The things I like most about All Aboard Wheat Harvest are the feelings of anticipation and excitment that always accompany harvest, as well as the many fond memories of previous wheat harvests with friends and family that these posts remind me of. As a life long wheat farmer in eastern Colorado, harvest is always one of the best times of the year, and, after reading these posts for several years, the authors have now become “virtual” friends that I enjoy keeping up with.
