09 Jul Jada: Hoffman Harvesting moves further west
Hoffman Harvesting wrapped up harvest in Colby, Kan., around dinner time last night and moved part of its equipment to Brewster, Kan. to harvest. This afternoon, we finished up in the Brewster area and moved to Kanarado. The wheat in Kanarado is a little wet this afternoon, so we are unsure when or if we will be able to harvest.
For the past two days, we have been split up. One of our combines is in Goodland, Kan. The wheat in the Goodland area is busheling around the 70 to 80 bushels per acre. The test weights are in the 60s. The wheat is all around good in western Kansas.
