15 Jun Jada:Wrapping up in Pratt
Hoffman Harvesting wrapped up their tour in the Pratt area last night.
Today we are blowing off machinery and power washing it to get it nice and clean. We are also greasing it and loading it up so it is ready to go when we are.
Why do we wash and blow off our machinery? Well, it isn’t just to make it look pretty. We are also ridding it of any weeds so we don’t spread any disease to the next farmer. However, I must say we like it to look clean too. Nothing looks better than a parade of clean equipment moving down the road. We are caught up with harvest and will move down the road either tomorrow or the following day. Hopefully we can find a little job to do until our next stop is ready. If not the Colby/Goodland areas are our next stop.
