Nov 21, 2020 | 13:19 3 I’m with FJLIP. Once we stopped baling hay that got too dry and left it till dark but that’s it. No such thing as too dry or hot here during harvest. Dry lighting........... rare as a bikini in January.

Only -15 and a foot of snow here.
Do we live on the same planet?😉 Reply With Quote

Two or three days in a row I believe Harvesting lentils in 42 degree heat and rotor gear case was pushing oil out from overheating. Extreme fire hazard. Here in the hood of south central. Straight outa Compton 😜 Reply With Quote

    South East alberta here, and august harvesting can present the same sorts of challenges. By september it usually tames down, but 35 degrees with a stiff wind and you're asking for serious trouble. Get into that 40 degree range and its time to just go home and drink beer on the couch...

    And weather stAtions with same info.

    Humidity wind and temp calculated once it reaches a certain number on scale harvesting should stop. Not mandatory but 95% comply. Insurance issues if you don’t.

    Anyway 1 mm of rain humid sonthats enough to stop lightning strike ignition. Reply With Quote

    Nov 22, 2020 | 04:12 15 Our week upcoming kid you not.

    From tommorow 23 26 36 32 43 43

    Night harvesting only on fri sat.

    Im 1963 v8ntage heat is starting to knock the stuffing out if me.

    Not super unusual though. Remember growing up as a rooting around onnpush bikes in local dam we used to have seemingly weeks of 40c Reply With Quote
    Nov 22, 2020 | 07:50 16 Mallee I always enjoy what you have to contribute on this forum. Down here in SW Sask where I live hot temps at harvest are usually 9 times out of 10 here. Last year 35+ degrees C was the norm. Shut down for a few hours ang go at her mid - late afternoon. Better than boiling everything to death. Call me crazy.

    The problem with where we live is that we are always long on heat and wind , and short on rain. If some of the yields other people consider as " normal" showed up here , I would crap in my pants ! HaHa !

    I would love to travel to Australia one day. Hoping we get the opportunity.

    Nov 22, 2020 | 09:06 17 Well thank you kind sir.

    But galaxie i did veer off course and post someth8ng political against my better judgement.

    But blaithin didn’t poultry shame me.

    Shemust have thought itcwas passable or she is asleep at the wheel.

    We must farm with similar mindset.

    Completed fields thus far 2.45t ha barley and 1.7 t ha lupins. Reply With Quote
