The crew just finished up in southeast Colorado where a combination of hail and drought stressed the crop and yields reflected that accordingly. The crew fought several days of wet ground and high moisture in the grain, but once they were able to move they ran hard with their stripper headers.  

We currently have three crews deployed across western Kansas and southeastern Colorado and they have been parked for days due to wet conditions. The storms keep coming and while we were trying so hard to be thankful for this desperately needed moisture, the harvest clock is also ticking loudly in our heads.

On June 6, we hopped in the car and met one of the crews at the field and watched a few rounds with the stripper headers before we got in with Ryan to shuffle headers. Since the other field was close to the drop-off point, we decided to take a quick spin around to see where we were at on moisture.
