27 Jun Checklist—Get field ready
Checklist: Inspect, repair, get field ready.
Our combines have been through the inpections process, the pounding and tweaking repair proccess, and now they are field ready. Our combines are as top notch as they can be, the 4-wheel-drives are set to ON, and our hearts are pumping in anticipation! Harvest 2015 for Misener Family Harvesters has arrived!
Eight days ago, we headed to our first field south of Elk City and cut a sample. Our first sample was 14.5 percent. Although it was on the verge of being too wet, the farmer we cut for wanted to start making rounds anyway. We cut a few loads and headed to the next field. This particular field averaged 25 bushels per acre, 14 percent moisture, and 52 pounds. Considering how awful harvest has been these past few years, this wheat is spectacular! At least we have some wheat to cut.
Be safe and God bless!
