Sugarbeet Pre-Harvest

Pre-lift is here...incredibly EARLY!! We are lifting beets this week, mostly getting fields headlands off and opening up lands so are ready for main harvest in early October (we hope).

Use the carts to open up lands

Making adjustments

Happy to be lifting beets!

If it is dry and opened up the trucks can drive out into the field under the lifter

Wheat Harvest Complete

We rapped up wheat harvest last week! Things ran very well and we are happy with the way the first crop harvest just have to get through the next harvest phase which will be sooner than we think!

Every morning before starting out we have a meeting...obviously this was an intese one.

Once the "new operator nerves" wore off Roy is our most improved operator

Behind the combines we drop straw and bale it
