2022 crop pics


Recommended Posts

Well no combine for me. 7010 sold for 113,638 with the buyers fee. More then I thought it would bring. For that price it should have been mint shape and it wasn’t so in my books it was to much. Didn’t appear that it needed much to go to work but none the less 8120’s are in the same range or just a little more. Better off going that route in my mind. Was watching a 97 2188 as well that looked decent and had some work done to it. It sold for just shy of 20,000 with the buyers fee. Upper end of what it’s probably worth too as it had almost 5,000 hours on it too.

ya that's little steep in my opion to but i cant imaging spending 95000 dollars on a S690 with 4200hrs on it 

 

that 2188 and the 2388 i know the guy that consigned them he put alot of work into over the years, his farm just got to big for them 

 

I see on Facebook where the guy that bought the 7010 is looking for a trucker now  from down by Estevan  

I had glanced the 2188 over while I was walking around. Looked the pics over and could see where he’d spent some money on it. It’s so close to what we have now though that I didn’t really want to buy another. Almost the same hours even. Looked like it would be a good backup combine though or even a main replacement for someone like us when we were upgrading from the Massey. 
 

There’s definitely better deals in Kijiji depending on condition though I suppose.  Was some tired iron at ritchies too. Some of it had seen some hard hours.  I didn’t look the John Deere’s over much. Have to go back and see how mike mitchels fendts sold. They were cheap the last time I looked but I’m sure they went up at the end. He likes them but seemed he couldn’t keep them running steady enough.

Things are looking good there. Looks pretty even and not much behind a normal year. Very few wheat fields here starting to head out. I see the last couple storms lodged some all ready though. Canola is hit and miss in the area. Lots of yellow fields, and lots just cabbaged out. Ours seems to be very even and decent looking in full bloom, as do some other fields, but there is alot of others with bare patches, either too wet or bugs maybe destroyed some. Things were really picking up and starting to improve this past week, fields were drying up. We were finally able to work most of what we couldn't seed in June, and now it's probably underwater again. Looks like more rain for the weekend again

There’s some really nice looking canola crops in pockets around here and towards tisdale.  Ours are ok but not extra special by any means. Our headlands are patchy. I’m going to quit seeding the headlands first see if it improves some. I can gauge where to crap off the drill from the previous years headlands I think so I won’t have to much extra overlap. 
 

we could use a half inch rain here again. We n this year the canola has kind of a blueish color on the stems. Pedals are starting to drop off but there’s some nice size pods forming so I don’t think it’s all because of the heat. Least I hope not.  Crazy how you guys are staying so wet. I don’t think it comes to far into Sk at all but not sure on that.  Been lots of storms in southern sk and even up as far as lanigan. We’ve been fortunate here so far and nothing damaging yet. Sure hope it stays that way. Concerned about my barley laying down bad. It’s looking like a really heavy crop.

Craziness continued at the auction today lol. 2010 ram sold for almost 80,000$ with the buyers fee. Plus 11% tax if you’re a Sk resident.  
 

went out tonight to check on my wild oats in my wheat again. Can definitely tell where I sprayed. They’re not brown and crispy but that haven’t grown at all since I sprayed. Leaves are a little more brown now. Hopefully they don’t go to seed. Crop has jumped up 8 or so inches above them now so that will help. No sign of damage from the chemical at all to the crop. Didn’t even really trample much spraying it again. Tracks are noticeable but there is still wheat that’s heading out there yet too.

Yes I think he even has dad beat for low kms lol. His just rolled over 13,000 but he’s only had it for 2.5 years now.  
 

Going out after supper really gives you a good feel for the land as all the hills and valleys show up in the shadows. Gives kind of a neat perspective.

Took the day off again and went and helped my brother cut a trailer load of firewood. Had a 1 cord permit so we got that filled up with some birch. Hard to get to so he brought his little trailer that he rigged up to pull with the quad. Princes auto special but of course in typical machinist fabricator fashion he took it apart to make it better lol. Made new hubs and spindles for it as well as a new walking axle. Couldn’t buy hubs to fit the atv rims so he made his own lol.  Worked great for what he needed it for.  Took off on my own after and out about 30 miles on the quad before I went on my way home again. Mostly familiar trails but shot off on a couple different ones.  Was a nice little break aside from getting poured on with rain after he left lol. Got back to the truck and I was completely soaked.

Cord is a measurement of wood kind of like a bushel. 4’ wide x 4’ high by 8’ long. For birch you have to have a permit to cut it. Most other wood is fair game if it’s dead anyways. 
 

Ive never been to the one in north battleford before but have gone to Saskatoon quite a few times. Used to go to their big show in July where they’d have everything on display outside and running. Threading demonstrations with the steam engines as well.  Others would bring in their restored tractors and equipment too. Was always a good show. Not sure if they’ve done it since Covid or not though.

They have the same deal at the Yorkton WDM. I toured it probably ten years ago and its got some great machinery on display. My uncle was at their threshing days years ago too. 

Late canola still blooming pretty good here but the early stuff is really fading. The cool weather of the past week has been good for it. Cereals looking great. Very good weed kill so far. Took some drone pics and video yesterday and you can see a late canola field to the North still looking very yellow.

Our first canola is just barely starting to show a tinge of green now in spots. Still pretty much all yellow yet though. Last field is full bloom now. Looks a wee bit heavier then the first fields.  It’s all looking pretty good now though thankfully.

Things are coming along nicely here. We'll crops are, putting up hay is not. Seems to be rain every day or every other day. Alot of nice crops, and alot of patchy crops in the area. Worked fields are definitely coming along better than zero tilled this year. The way the crops are growing its not going to be far behind normal for harvest from the looks of things

The canola fields are the same just 2 days apart. Sure a solid yellow now

Cutting native hay meadow just into SD.

75% don't look this good.

Awful dry up here.

The guy I buy a little hay from each year is being very fair with me on price I feel.

So that made the difference on keeping vs selling deeper into the cow Herd this yearIMG_20220728_115656349.thumb.jpg.90ab05afeffeb5d7fbda400eda1244a2.jpg

Crops look good.
 

Sure hope that rain let’s up before harvest for you guys. I know the battle of wet ground and tough grain all to well. It’s no fun.  The guys doing hay here have had it pretty good this summer. Pretty heavy for the most part and it’s been mostly dry the last few weeks.  Been quite a few bales wrapped up the last few weeks that’s for sure.

It’s nice when guys can work together like that and not gouge each other.  Last year there was some awful price gouging in some areas. 200$+ a bale sure hurts.  I get that the guy selling isn’t getting as much in a dry year too but man how much can you pile ontop of a struggling industry already.

Won't be much if any native hay cut here this year. But the tame hay is pretty nice so it all evens out for us. Guys that depend on the slough hay are not quite as lucky.

That's good there are still people like that around. Last year here was not a good year to have to buy hay. We usually sell a bit of extra hay. And we have a few local customers that buy every year. We probably could've got double what we did if we sold to someone else, but these guys buy every year, and when the market falls out and hay is worth nothing, they still get from us and don't worry about if they can get it cheaper else where. At the end of the day it all evens out, and I know I wouldn't pay the high price if we needed to buy hay. I've been told we're too fair sometimes, but we're happy and they're happy

Good haying weather the past couple of days after several days of cloud and damp. Hay crops are way better than last year. That 40 acre grass/alfalfa patch I planted last year is looking real good and more than I need so a neighbour is cutting and baling it. I took some photos over the field yesterday evening.

Hopefully it holds so you can get it all wrapped up.  Our propane tank is pretty much empty. Having a hard time filling the 20lb bottles for the bbq now even lol.  Have a couple of the old tanks around yet with the bleeders so we can fill them from the big tank. Quite a bit cheaper that way.

crops progressing away here peas starting to turn color and canola blooming over it got insanely hot here the other day that took a toll on things i think but things are still looking well 

 

Rained 2 tenth here this yesterday morning so not a whole lot got done, went and looked at a IH 1086 thought price was a little under the normal range only to find out the T/A and clutch were gone made what i thought was a fair offer on it but never heard a reply so they must still figure its worth what they were asking it was also missing a few pieces to boot kind of disappointed but that the way it goes i guess, i priced parts doing it myself and having the dealer do it and golly you got to be committed to spending and using the tractor after to make it pay for itself
