24 Jul Emma: One Semi Working!
The drought has taken a toll on Misener Family Harvesters. We have not cut anything this year. We are hoping to get into the field later this summer, but even that is not a guarantee. Fall harvest is our best chance for cutting something this year. Many harvesters are in the same predicament as we are. Fortunately we have enough work at home to keep us busy.
A farmer who is in need of a truck to finish his own wheat harvest near the Oklahoma/Texas border contacted us. Since we have no use for our semi at this time, we lent out one of ours. We delivered the truck right to the wheat field where he was cutting.
He said it was averaging around 10 to 15 bushels per acre. In this area anything is better than nothing. It is nice to see our semi put to good use.
Be safe and God bless!
