We’re done! We’re done! HOORAY HOORAY!!!
Jerry finished up the last load of corn the evening Nov 19th and came straight home without even taking the combine back to the farm. He says every year gets a little bit more efficient and even though harvest doesn’t seem to take any less time he is combining more acres than ever before. The last few days especially he had multiple breakdowns and the machinery was just getting plum wore out. The combine only gets used for 1 1/2 months out of the entire year but is expected to go almost around the clock without breaking during harvest and that just doesn’t happen.
(Whoops on Jerry’s bad spelling he was a little exhausted)
Next on the list for the farmers is to get all the machinery moved home, power washed, and maintenanced and put in the shed until next fall. We have cows to get on cornstalks and things to do around the farm that got put off because of harvest before the first snow hits. There is always work to be done.
