Oct 8, 2018 | 06:04 4 Another 6 in snow here this am. Nails the coffin lid shut. Not much more gets harvested this year. Area is close to half done. Reply With Quote

Wow, I can't believe this fall.

It's like the WTF Fall.

I hope they are wrong, Furrow.

Oct 8, 2018 | 07:57 8 Nope not wrong we got er bad 😳 Reply With Quote
Oct 8, 2018 | 08:02 9 We got something done last week. Most of the wheat around is off, not many attempts at canola. About 4 solid inches on the ground. Edmonton Reply With Quote
Oct 8, 2018 | 08:06 10 Grounds white here already , made it to 79%
Its like a turtle race
Dry for a couple days i guess, then hopefully go again
Good luck everyone Reply With Quote
Oct 8, 2018 | 08:20 11 Lucked out and got a whole 2 days in a row. At 50 percent now. Snow coming down heavy now. Reply With Quote
Oct 8, 2018 | 08:25 12 The guys came out of the field in a blizzard last night, we must have 6 inches here at Paynton. Goodness me what an awful harvest. Reply With Quote

Went around clock till yesterday 4 am and hit a wall of tough. Couldn’t get going till 3 pm and by 8 was tough again. Good 8 inches of snow here. We’ve been taking canola off as I feared this would happen. Lots of wheat out. Any standing stuff won’t be. Wow. Liquor cabinet better be stocked to ride this out. Reply With Quote
helmsdale's Avatar Oct 8, 2018 | 09:02 14 Best we can manage is a day or two of near 20% wheat... went for 7 hours yesterday. 1/2 mi fog since 4am. Snow still laying in the low spots.

It'll either melt or it won't. I'm done getting stressed. 50% left in field. Reply With Quote

Me too. Over have done canola and barley but didn’t start wheat. Far as I’m concerned it’d be nice to get rest of canola and rest of barley but wheat can stay cause never harvested it and crop insurance cause elk will destroy it anyway. Reply With Quote
Oct 8, 2018 | 09:39 17 Good thing Trudeau is handing out cheques to the guaranteed income dairy guys! They could use the money!!! Might be a multi million dollar quota for sale near by.

What a fucking joke.
Thanks for nothing Moe. Reply With Quote
Oct 8, 2018 | 10:15 18 Really hope for a Hail Mary here but even long term forecasts don’t mean shit. Lots of outfits not close to 50% done. Fertilizer and input lines come due and I expect there will be defaults unless guys can take an advance on what’s out and hope crop insurance covers the advance and then some. Even so I’m at over 50% on canola and already exceeded my crop insurance guarantee. Barley about the same as well. Wheat is another story. It’ll lay the winter and although there wasn’t a lot to do it was a damn fine crop and it makes you kinda sad to see it going to hell. Thank goodness we swathed everything. Lots not so lucky. The trade better take note cause what they got now is all they’ll get unless they’re willing to pay and be gentler on drying fees. Have a fair amount binned and was planning to send some more out but now I think I can afford to be patient or don’t have a choice cause bin yards will be a mess. Reply With Quote

Fake news!! There are no cheques being handed out - indeed the compensation the Harper Government promised SM farmers after giving away market access in both the CETA and TPP agreements has never been included in a Liberal budget. It's all just talk. Reply With Quote

Straw is absolutely rotten. I'm pounding it through with an old case rotary with a standard rotor. 20% grain goes through better than dry grain after sunset in August Reply With Quote
