Combine Goals

Dodge City, Kansas—For the first few days of cutting in southern Kansas we were fighting green. The moisture on the loads went 13.3% to 15%.  The fields I’m cutting have big, full wheat heads.  It’s all making over 60 bushels per acre.  The test weights...

Weatherford, Oklahoma–We’ve been harvesting wheat averaging 40 and 50 bushels per acre. The test weight has been really good at 64 and 65 pounds per bushel. Then all at once to our surprise the test weight was 66.1 to 66.4 pounds per bushel and it...

Weatherford, Oklahoma–We were lucky enough to have a ten day stretch to start out the wheat harvest before we got our first rain shower. It rained 80 hundredths last night here in the Weatherford, Oklahoma, area.  It feels great to work every day for ten...

Western Kansas –We finished up in western Kansas mid-July and had a good run there this year.  The wheat that we harvested yielded well and overall it was a tremendous crop.  It was the most beautiful wheat I’ve ever harvested. I was expecting the wheat to...

Western Kansas –I’ve seen western Kansas produce good wheat before but this year the wheat has got to be breaking records. Last year was a drought so it’s always interesting to see how Mother Nature can demonstrate such extremes with drought or plentiful moisture during...
