Great Falls, Montana – Our crew out in Montana has been staying quite busy. They’ve been there nearly a month and have finished winter wheat.  They have been cutting lentils, durum wheat and spring wheat.  They have reported good yields and the weather has been hot and...

Grand Forks, North Dakota – We arrived at our last harvest stop here in North Dakota earlier than ever. There is a drought going on here and the farmers are praying for rain especially for their soybeans.  There are lots of fields of soybeans and...

Pierre, South Dakota – We made the big trip from Sidney, Nebraska up to the Pierre, South Dakota area and had a great trip. The outside temperature was only 70 degrees and we didn’t have any tire troubles.  That’s a lot to be thankful for...

Dodge City, Kansas area – Has the same old song and dance ever gotten on your nerves?  That’s what has been happening lately on harvest. I’ve been down this road many times before where we have lots of wheat to cut but we can’t get...

Kinsley, Kansas – The wind had blown for days and there was rain in the forecast.  We harvested wheat up until it started raining.  Luckily, we got the field done and got the combines parked for the night and then the wind hit.  Soon after,...

Kinsley, Kansas - We have been lucky enough to have wheat to cut and harvest weather lately.  We’ve also had south winds 20 to 35 mph for several consecutive days which has allowed us to start earlier in the mornings and cut later into the...
