Western Kansas—The month of June is over and we’re on to July already and I've got my blue header on again. I have dreamed of having 100-bushel wheat to harvest again this year but when I got out west on June 29 I quickly noticed...

Cheyenne, Oklahoma—It can be hard to avoid the comparison game as the wheat harvest run progresses. We witness and read about other crews moving on north into Kansas as we look at another week or so of cutting in western Oklahoma. It always seems to...
