  1. No, this one is actually only about 10 miles from me! I hear some rumors about a 1066, 1468, and other possible IH’s at a place east of 35, I may have to investigate that place
  2. Oh that’s a long ways out of the way🤣
  3. There may come a day, but right now if I get it, it will find a spot undercover until harvest is over
  4. I’m going to try! As stated, when I’m actually in the seat headed west, then I can say I got it!!
  5. Wow!!! That looks fantastic!!! 👍🏻👍🏻
  6. I think I did, but I won’t say yes until I’m actually driving it home!
  7. Just got in from taking some more beans out, yep needed the a/c in the combine yet up here too!
  8. How are crops yielding for you? Or did you not get hit to bad with dry weather?
  9. Looks like you had a great day for a tractor ride!!!
  10. Well, the proof is in! It is a 1568, I looked at it again, and whoever converted this tractor from the V8 to 6 cylinder used a plasma cutter to cut the exhaust hole in the right hood. And the final proof, the cab serial number plate
  11. Thursday and Friday morning we will be in the low 20’s, I would think that would put you around 30, wouldn’t it?
  12. After Thursday and Friday morning, corn should shed some more moisture, I see the overnight lows going down to 23* and 25* That should kill the plant the rest of the way, and start really drying out the corn
  13. Thank you for your serial number, and pictures!!! That’s a good looking 1066! I’ll get that added.
  14. I think we have some corn that is close to 20-25% but overall, we aren’t there yet either
  15. What are you seeing for moisture on the corn? You stay safe as well!
  16. You definitely don’t want to slug that full of green stems!!!
  17. Green stems will make any combine grunt!!
  18. Thank you Sledge!! But now I need to know what the 56’s are in the background!!
  19. Unfortunately, it sounds like after next week, we might have weekly storm patterns moving through for 2-3 weeks. We don’t need that now!
  20. Thank you! Normally my phone doesn’t take good night pictures, but somehow it worked last night?! But it’s funny how it was a lot darker when I took the picture, it somehow looks brighter in the picture?! Thanks Jeff!! If you find yourself bored, you can take the tanker off the Pete, and come pull hopper?!😬 I suppose you are correct?!🤦🏼‍♂️ I can add it there, or is it to late?! 😬🤷🏻‍♂️
  21. Yes, there are many farms, not so much in my area, but many farms a majority of their crop hits an elevator in the fall. Maybe they store it at the elevator, but if that’s the case, even their storage is no longer available. Bins are a very expensive thing to put up, but in our case, we have about 180,000 bushels of storage on our farm. Mainly because we are busy hauling everyone else’s grain in the fall, we don’t have time for our own. So we need the bins! Plus on years where it’s dry and barge traffic isn’t full to capacity, or the river is high and they can’t load barges, we get to stay home and harvest our own.
  22. Thank you!! I sure hope we can get a good few weeks of beans under our belt before the weather decides to make any changes!!
  23. That’s not good! Especially right at fall harvest!! I’ve never understood the river depths, so when it falls to 5.5 feet, is that 5.5 feet of draft for barges? It can’t be only 5.5 feet deep, is it??
