Over & Down

I still can’t wait to get started on the sorebeans. I dumped the rest of the wagons of corn and got switched over to the bean head this morning. Was able to get the auger greased and lubed. When I got moved over to the west farm and started to grease the combine I found the bearings were going out on the tailings elevator upper shaft. It was quite wrenchtaking to get into the shaft in question and the daylight ran out before I was able to get it all back together. Tomorrow’s another day. I’m going to clean up and eat before calling lights out.
Then & there.

Harvest 2016

Summer’s over. On Wednesday I loaded out the first three semi loads of new crop corn for delivery to Hancock for the grand spot price of $2.88 per bushel. Tuesday September 27th I officially started the 2016 corn harvest. The moisture is testing 18-19% and the test weight is 55 lbs. Not the best weight but drier than I expected.

So we’re off to the races. Hope for me good fortune and I’ll gladly return the favor. Sorry for the brevity but it’s more than I’ve posted in two months. Did you miss me?
