You got a very good operation going on there, deeres and chevys  :thumbs:  my, oh my, Peter would like you, he has deeres, from a 49 B up to 2011 (too new to remember model number) with bucket and a 62 two ton and a 83 two ton chevys.

 

You just cut corn or have other heads for the combine for wheat/rye ?

The chevy is a 1972 C 50 with a 14 foot box, it will hold 300-325 bushel max , before it rolls over the sides. 

Dad owns 120 acres and we rent another 200 on 3 different farms.

We use to rent out the fields in Conway to a hobby farm when we stopped bailing, as payment they would give us some hay, always keep the hay shed full.

Last year was really interesting

 

 

We started planting corn on April27th. Finished June 10th   which is really late started beans on June 12th and finished the 18th once we got all the crops in they grew like crazy,did not finish 1st crop hay till July 15th.   Only took 2crops last year .  Our yields were unexpectedly good to excellent down only 10-15 bushel from 2012.

We did not lose any cuttings to rain. We did lose our 1st., because a neighboring farmer accidentally had his spray, drift on to the alfalfa. It did not kill the alfalfa, but we won't know till this year if it had any lasting affect. We raise natural freezer beef, so we did not want to feed contaminated hay.

Yes, i heard some reports of flooded fields until June out your way, May plantings were drowned.

The year before we pulled in nearly 11,000 bales in 3 solid cutting with a few more around edges of fields and trusted medows.
