Harvest Progress

Recommended Posts

We have 6 acres of beans left. Warm forecast for Saturday,  may get them done.  Corn, well. We have 16 acres left.  Corn in bin is dry enough to keep for now. LP tank is empty. COOP says we are on LP rationing due to supply issues.   We are allowed 250 gallons NEXT WEEK.   GEEZ!  What a fall......

Looking like another spring harvest here. Lots of crop out yet in spots all over Manitoba from what I gather. Probably more left out than last year right now locally. Were a bit over half done so sitting not as bad as last year. Tried some standing flax last night but getting too much ice pellets in with the seed. And it's no where near dry. And it's snowing again. Maybe it'll turn nice yet but not looking good. Good luck to everyone still trying to get the crop off!

Did what we could given the weather we've received. This is the place we call the haunted house. I was merging, Ricky Bobby was chopping and we had two guys hauling. We would like to mow 250 acres yet if we get the chance

slowly getting to the end 2 loads of late planted corn silage to chop, one more load of haylage, don't recall making hay in November before, and will try and harvest corn next Monday for high moisture corn, but its really cold here at least no snow we have been on the northern edge of it,  at least the freezing up helped things get done,

It has definitely been a battle we are closing out on bean harvest we started again yesterday after another 3 day rain delay. Beans were running 15 percent at noon and dropped to 13.5 by  3 p.m. and by 5 p.m. the dew set in, and that was it for the day. We had a lot of lodging on our best ground , cut several hundred acres one way, and those yields are well below average. hoping with the 60 degree temps forecast for the day we can wrap up beans and then go get the later planted corn out before it goes down or the deer knock it down.

It's always interesting to see how things are done in different places. We're lucky to get 2 cuts of hay a year. Looked at growing orchard grass a bit ago but I don't think we would've got 2 cuts of it. About the only thing is alfalfa. Some years theres a nice mix of grass in the 2nd cut, but usually it's just alfalfa

He is mowing first cutting when our grass in the yard is almost starting to show signs of greening up . 

We all farm in different circumstances

We will finish our 2000 acres tomorrow. Early harvest went well with very little rain but has slowed the last few weeks l. There is still a lot of soybeans in the field here in Ky. Yields have been all over the place depending on when the crop was planted .

Been slow going, fields wet, beans done in the area,  corn harvest progressing, lp being spoon fed to try and keep everyone going, corn hanging around 19 to 21%, and throw some snow in the mix......

Taking good share to elevators. Pain to run dryers in sub freezing temps, some elevators have had shut downs because no lp to run dryers. But ones with Natural Gas have been very busy.

About half done with my corn. I had 2 yield checks done today. 107 day Stine went 217 at 19.5% moisture and 106 day Wyffel's next to it went 214 at 18.5% moisture. Of course yield checks always seem much better.  The rest of my corn is 95 to 101 day so hopefully it's dryer. 

 

Various pictures from last night and today.

6 is pretty normal here and south a country they mowed on 11/4 for their 7th.  Mainly fescues here with some orchard around.  Love orchard but the stands just dont last.  Then as they thin weeds take over.  The newest fescues are getting alot better feedwise.

Hand shelled a bit to see moisture and then did the mouth test. Brach’s want it pretty dry. Will have to wait a bit, to high moisture makes a mess out of the combine....4ADDC423-CA2C-40A7-94D9-4E30A6EBA357.thumb.jpeg.21de7736cfba3ca9837995cb4d4989d8.jpeg

Ran down to the bottoms to talk to a buddy this afternoon. He was cutting beans and I could see 3-4 other combines running from where I was. It’s a mad dash since the weather is supposed to take a major dive tomorrow. The guy across the road is a BTO and showed up with two S690 Deere’s and huge (maybe 40’) Draper heads. I watched one guy plug the machine with mud while I stood there. I guess the combine head isn’t the best way to level off a high spot.....My buddy’s new to him 1666 just chugged right along.

Had a very good day on Saturday.  Unfortunately no truck available on Sunday.  About 12 acres to go but will have to wait until end of week.

Sawyer was photo man in combine while Waylon helped poppy in the 986 and provided another set of eyes.

Need to get an outside shot of the 1460 in action.

Finally finished 2019 crop this evening. I think it gets harder every year to plant and harvest a crop.....

Hoping everyone that has crop out can wrap it up soon.
