Nice pics of the yellow Fellas but that doesn't show where the planter never comes up !
Lol and where would that be with the planter ??
That Kochia land for sale , buy it with all your money, kochia in every field with saline areas way out there .

It’s 100x better shape now than when we took it over , the fellas that had it before were a train wreck

Much the same as west and NW of here .
Some guys got lucky
We were on edge here , some decent, some just ok depending on rains . More consistent the more west and north west you go
That’s the rain lottery I guess, dryness did take yield in areas for sure here and east Reply With Quote
SASKFARMER's Avatar Sep 23, 2022 | 07:24 33 Hey, wise guy when your goal is 100 wheat and it goes 50 to 80 it didn't hit your goal it's a nice big crop but no super crop. I'm not complaining about wheat yields like this but it's a goal.

If your goal is 40 then it's a super crop doing 50.

Each farm has different goals mine has been to get wheat to 100 on a yearly basis it's a goal before I die someday. It's a goal.

Same with Canola it's a goal. Our farm has been growing ****seed since the 70s so a high yield is also a goal.

To some 35 is a bumper.

Rain makes grain at the right time but gets 3 inches every week and you have a disaster or get nothing all summer you have nothing. We live on 6 inches of dirt and count on rain to make grain.

It's really simple to see.

See I don't come home every spring to try to do the same thing over and over I try to get the best out of our farm and have fun doing it. Some years it works some it doesn't.

Have a great day all we got a 1/4 inch so its play with the new MAndako today. Reply With Quote

  • Sep 23, 2022 | 07:59 36 Thankful and blessed to have had a well above monster crop. 😂

    Finished Wed night then went and finished up some bottoms yesterday morning before the rain came.

    Got 4.5 tenths. Just need 3.5 inches more.

    Let the fall work begin.

    Inputs going up 10-20%, better get the shelves stocked. Reply With Quote
    Sep 23, 2022 | 08:01 37 We finished last Sunday. It was 19 days from start to finish. I can’t say I have ever been that fortunate before.

    Lots of canola yet to be harvested in my area, most of what is left is standing.
    As far as yields go, there is certainly a consistent trend developing. Looks like roughly 25% have a 3 in front, 65%% have a 4 in front and 10% have a 5 in front. Certainly less than most had hoped for back in June when the rains started. Around here there has been little rain since about July 20 and that is why yields fizzled. Reply With Quote

    Sounds much the same as here east , here west percentages go up a lot . Good to see some have great crop , some areas needed it bad after the past few years.
    Areas Mervin to Turtleford have had two great years in a row now with high prices . Very lucky small area for sure . Reply With Quote

    The “like” wasn’t because your sitting.

    Might need a toque

    Jokes aside they had an issue. They’ll fix it. 3 days motor in and out of the naybors. Hasn’t had an issue with the other 2 or the fixed one now.

    Seen one rolling along side a 8800 the other day. 2 mph faster in some green looking crap. It can fly…..no pun intended…. Reply With Quote

    You should stop and see the guy with the Cat up on the pole at Melfort.

    He has a few toys like that.
    Maybe get some free advice.
    Not much free about having those around.

    Sep 23, 2022 | 22:18 52 Thought we would get going today but the best test of the day for canola was 12.4, no wind today and no 🌞 until mid afternoon. Tomorrow wind 40k to 60k and mainly sunny, sounds good for combining just hope I'm not chasing swaths. We did manage to swath the last of our oats today and hopefully pick up next week.

    Good luck 🤞 Reply With Quote

  • Sep 24, 2022 | 16:55 55 Finally got going at about 2:00 not dry yet but 10.9 is good enough in my books. Sure glad I'm not picking up any headlands even your lump still pretty wet. The straw is still tough slugging most of my speed is between 2.4 and 2.8. my daughter is keeping busy running the grain cart. Reply With Quote

  • Sep 24, 2022 | 20:34 56 got done today , canola was still 10.8, will mix good with the 5 &6 stuff
    sure was a struggle with all the combine downtime , working good for the last week though
    100 ac alfalfa for tomorrow Reply With Quote

  • Sep 24, 2022 | 21:16 57 I was a bit surprised today that with the 40k wind and humidity below 50% the best we got today was 10.5. We quit a hour ago after finishing the field, last load at 10.7. Must feel good to almost be done Caseih congratulations to you, we still have 43% left and forecast still looks good so no worries yet other than bin space but that’s a good problem to have.

  • jazz's Avatar Sep 25, 2022 | 08:08 59 Standing canola was testing 10.5 yesterday even after a pretty good couple hours of wind. We waited, go back in later today.

    I dont like binning canola over 10 even if its with dry stuff. I guess I am paranoid after 2019. Been blowing it down each night to under 10deg too. Reply With Quote
    Sep 25, 2022 | 08:14 60 kept lots of canola at 10.5
    cables and fans work good if you check them and run them
    10 years ago 10.5 was dry
    calendar will switch to Oct real soon Reply With Quote
