That is some really good wheat Musket Man. What do you normally yield up there in WA? We were down pretty bad here, cut a bunch of 20 bushel wheat.

I think the average for winter wheat in this area is around 65 bushels? 90 to 100 is pretty normal on summer fallow on good lower ground. Recrop 70 is pretty good. Go west of here 15 miles its alot drier and I think 50 or 60 is pretty good. I rotate winter wheat, barley, summer fallow.

The days when you spend 3 hours working on something only to realize when you get to what you think the problem is it was a 5 second Leatherman fix all along...................its Coors time!

I hear you on coors time MM. Farming and the equipment required like to throw curve balls. We do wheat, corn, fallow on our dryland. Irrigated is pretty much corn every year.

I wonder who was the brilliant YouTube executive who said "Hey I have a great idea, when a viewer is watching a YouTube video, lets post an advertisement OVER TOP of that video so it blocks the video actually being watched."

Was actually mud dobbers that threw me the curve this time. Thought the shift valve was stuck on my truck transmission but turned out all it was was they plugged up the air exhaust port up. of course by that time I had the seat floor board floor mats insulation ect all tore out for nothing. 2 more days and we will be done!
