If you’re a regular follower to my blog you know I don’t get much time to create articles during harvest. This time of year is very fast paced and high energy, with extensive work hours. I focus more on being a professional driver than my writing talents.
I do get opportunity to take pictures, so I’m going to do another photographic article with less writing. I hope you enjoy my views, during my duties, working for a grain operation.
I generally spend my harvest in a semi. This year I have been a grain cart operator.
I’m not the only one in my region that likes red power. Brad and Greg King own red. Here’s a few pictures when I was hauling for them.
I snapped a quick picture from my truck and ended up with a happy accident. The following picture isn’t a new state of the art model combine with two load out augers. There are actually two combines in the picture. The one coming toward the shot is hidden behind the away combine.
So once the grain is ready for the truck to move where does it go? Well, for more depth read my previous three part Then and now Ag Hauling article in the archive. Here is a picture overview.
The following picture isn’t just a pit manager. The man on the broom actually owns and manages the elevator. He knows every job. The previous picture is second in command. He does everything and goes anywhere.
There you have it! A glimpse of candid moments throughout my usual day during the fall.
