New Places, New Faces

Anthony, Kan. – We are in a new place! I love new places. A new place means new people to meet and new sites to see. Harvest adventures are always my favorite adventures so I guess I’m pretty easy to please this time of year. Bring me to a new harvest location and I am happy as a clam. The only thing that is tricky for a truck driver in a new location is having to learn how to maneuver through a new elevator. The directions to the elevator were as follows; take the crooked road till you get to a T in the road and then go left, go right, hit a stop sign, left again, follow 3 curves, hit another stop sign, go straight and then you’re basically there.” Farmer Aaron rode with Purple and me for our first load to town to make sure we had it under control. Test weights have been between 62/63.5 pounds with moisture around 9.5 percent. Wheat here is looking great so far!

If you were to ask any member of Osowski Ag Service about the weather, the answer would simply be “it’s 100 and something.” Actually, most of the locals would probably give the same answer because nobody really wants to say the real temperature value. Don’t take my factual information of the weather as complaining because I can assure you that is not the case. I just want you to get a feel for what we are dealing with out here!

    Any protein counts yet. The most important grade factor to the huge domestic flour market.

      I think we know what we will be doing for supper on our last night in Anthony. Thank you for the suggestion! 🙂
