We cut 90 acres of wheat on a local farm south of Assumption. We used the opportunity to get some “behind the wheel” experience for some employees in an S660. The wheat was testing between 14-15.5% and we had to put some low heat on it to dry it for safe storage. Once it was dry we moved it to a storage bin and kept the aeration fan running on it. The wheat also had a low test weight due to the very wet weather leading up to harvest time. The training was a success as those who got to operate the machine felt it was time well spent. Hopefully we can do more in field experiences like this in the future.
