Good looking rig!! Has the drought affected your wheat much in your area? We keep hearing the wheat there is pretty off an on depending if it happened to catch a rain shower at the right time. Bone dry here in NW KS but had the best wheat crop in years because of early rains in spring. Our wheat harvest season is around July 1.
Corn and Milo is toast and being cut for silage.

Yields are way off this year and test weight is mid fifties. Not too shiny for sure.  The early heat and utter lack of rain since early April have really taken a toll. Going to be pretty dry seeding this fall.

Hi Bruce, I guess you have to be grateful for small mercies, you could have had a burnt out crop going by the wildfire pictures you posted recently.

You’re right, things could always be worse.  We did have a crop to cut, some guys didn’t.

Thanks Tom.  We are about 400 miles from Bend, about a 7 hour drive.  We are a bit south of Asotin Wa.  Feel free to stop by anytime.  

Bruce.

Looks like a good harvester. Just sad the drought seems done its damage there.

when it dry on one side of the world its wet or just right on the other.

in my country they say the season is going to be one of the best for a long time just one slight problem not enough harvester drivers to pick it thanks to state border restrictions. and we have a mice plague in some areas.
some fruit and veg growers are even ploughing their crops in because they cant get enough staff to pick as no backpackers.

it never rains but it pours mother nature always throws up a challenge.

your old girl looks right at home towing that harvester.
