Week ending Sept. 6th

A view from the grain cart operator's seat looking back at the combine as it unloads "on-the-go"

Our new grain bin is up.

After four inches of rain since last Wednesday & Thursday we were finally able to get back in the fields and resume harvesting corn. Moistures have dropped from 20-22% to 18-19%. This week we will continue to harvest corn as well as start our fall tillage. It will be interesting to see how hard or easy the implements pull this fall considering all the early rains followed by drier conditions.

Many of you may remember our grain bin fire from last fall. Over the course of the weekend Range Implement took down the old bin and put up our new GSI bin. We still have wiring and a few other odds and ends to finish up before we can put corn in it, but we are relieved it is up and just in time.
