    I enjoyed following the last 2 years harvest. The custom harvest sort of was like when I was young at the start of my job and spent the summer doing annual relief work. I stayed in hotels as the jobs where generally covering for reporters in big cities. When we had no kids it was sort of fun. Being on the road with a 2 1/2 year old and a 6 month old for 3-4 months was not much fun. There has been a big change in collecting and sending market reports from the 1970's when I started with the USDA

    I have enjoyed following your three harvest crews this season and hope you will repeat the process again next summer. If so please enter my e-mail on your list. As a native Kansasan farmer who has grown irrigated wheat in Wa, state for the past 30 years, I found your site very interesting. Before leaving Kansas, we would see the crews pass in our area of Great Bend and got to know some them. In those years it was common to see 10 -12 machines in a group (smaller machines). Next year it would be interesting to know some facts such as: fuel cost, machine cost and even custom harvest rates (that may be too private information,) We grow irrigated: wheat, corn, sugar beet seed, bluegrass seed, pea seed bean seed and potatoes. We hire a local custom harvestor for all our crops except potatoes, as we don't feel we can own all the needed equipment. Thanks for doing the project this summer.

    I posted a harvest rate sheet from The University of Michiigan and Iowa State a few weeks ago. Iowa has a complete list of custom rates from most crop operations. I also listed the Lease rates on combines from a John Deere Dealer in Illinois. I can work out a budget to make money with the business. Too many people in farming like to put on a show and put the way of life over what is sound business.

    Just wanted to let you guys know how much I enjoyed the blog for the last two years. While I have never had the good fortune to live or work on a farm, I used to spend my vacations working with family in Kiowa, Kansas. While everyone has spread out over the years, they all have fond memories of the summer harvest season and now I get to enjoy as well.

    Eu conheci o All Aboard pela internet em 2010 e voltei para o ano de 1972 quando estava colhendo trigo em Great Falls MT,no Andersen&Hovland Ranch.Maravilhosas lavouras de trigo.A lembrança daquela colheita ainda é muito forte.Que vontade de volta para Montana.
    Parabens pelo trabalho de todos os envolvidos no All Aboard.Nos encontraremos na próxima temporada.

    Colher trigo é uma dádiva de DEUS.

    I enjoyed following the harvest in the Midwest, for me in France it's a pleasure to see how things are going in other parts of the world.
    The articles are great, the different people always has different story to tell. I love the "family mood" that gets free from the different story.
