So we finally got cutting! I know, after weeks of waiting the weather and the wheat finally decided to work together and give us something to do.
The first day was slow, it was mid afternoon before we finally got some combines rolling and wheat cut. But what an achievement, it was great to see all the training that the new crew members received being put into action.
The excitement was clearly visible on the faces of all, but also a few nerves kicking in.
First came the moisture test, a quick scoop of some wheat and the trip to the local elevator to get a moisture sample so the calibration could take place. Then a thumbs up, it was good to go.
The first wheat being Rocky Wisdom's, then Mollye & Ray Hatfield. What a pleasure it has been to be cutting their wheat. Its been a great experience being back hauling their grain. They, as well as all of JKD's Customers make you feel very welcome and show their appreciation for the job that's being done.
So with that in mind, I best do what I do best and show a few photos of the last few days cutting
