First day of corn harvest 2014

Thursday, September 18, 2014

First day of harvest…. with the usual glitches.  We spent some considerable time doing yield calibrations and getting the threshing settings right.  There were many new things to learn about the S680 that were different from the previous 9770.  The corn is making a little over 200, not bad for where we are working.  The moisture levels are anywhere from 22-26%.   The dryer is working!

On our way out a little before noon...

The new grain cart worked very well...

The new Demco 1350 grain cart worked very well…

All in all, a pretty good first day…
