    Combining Wheat in Montana

    Anyone out there in Supercub land want to come drive a John Deere Combine In SE Montana for around a month? Place to stay, good food and great people. You wouldn't have to have much experience.
    PM me, I could even find hangar space for your A/C if you flew out.
    Thanks,
    Dave

    PS: You could drive truck if you didn't want to combine.

    How is the crop in SE MT?

    Friends coming home from the harvest run say that most everything down south was real bad. South Dakota Combines didn't even come out of the shed.

    We combined peas last week that went 31 to 35 bu/ac, about half a crop for us, but we have something to harvest. Durum is next, then spring wheat which might make 40bu/ac.

    John Deere? Is that one of those green colored things? LOL! JK
    I grew up on a farm in Mn and haven't been on a combine in close to 25-30 years.
    When does your harvest start there? Soon I would guess.

    Sorry to take so long to get back here, Need a wireless in my combine.
    Looks like we have the Winter Wheat about handled. When we start into the Spring Wheat in a few days I'll get back here and let everybody know if we still need help. The thinking is the Spring Wheat is going to be about half a crop so we can pull some truck drivers off and put them in combines.

    Thanks for all the replies and PMs

    If I wasn't still working full time, I'de be there in a heartbeat! 46 years in agriculture and one of my all time passions is driving a combine....started out as a header tender on an old pull Massey-Harris, and then started pulling a converted Case harvester with a 3T Cat.....all on tracks, working in wheat, barley, safflower and the big one, rice! Even had my own JD-105 for a while. Now I have a Super Cub!
