20 Aug We’re Cuttin’ Wheat!
This year has been totally unpredictable, as most of you know. Thankfully, we’re cutting wheat in South Dakota. We get to end the year on a good note! Misener Family Harvesters have been cutting for this particular customer, Buck, for over 40 years. He’s like family!
The wheat averaged right at 30 bushels per acre. The moisture was really up and down due to early morning dews and the never ending humidity of South Dakota. Overall, the final moisture result was 12.5 percent. The best wheat we have cut this year! Haha! It was nice to be in the combine, even if it was only for a couple of days.
Here’s a few pictures of our week.
Leslie came north with us this trip. We always love having him around. He and Dan were just getting ready to take a sample.
The farmer we are cutting for likes to drop the straw to bale.
Our dogs Jesse and Heidi enjoying some time out in the field.
Buck has some owls posted along the borders of his field to try and keep the pesky geese away from the crops. Heidi was really curious!
A bittersweet ending to a season. Of course, it always is though, huh?
Be safe and God bless!
