Three Mile Road Harvest

The day after harvesting on 96th Street I took my own rig to the field on 3 Mile Rd.  This field was just down the street from my house.  This was the first time harvesting with my Case diesel tractor.  The combination worked very well!  We had one stop when the re-threshing spout clogged up a couple of times.  I did some test harvesting at 11 am, but had to wait until around 2:00 pm to begin work on the field in earnest.  I finished the entire 5 acres by dark.

The harvest was cleaned and bagged by the end of the month.  Tally was 8700 lbs (145 bushels) of clean wheat.
