Roland Harvesting stays busy in Kansas

Roland Harvesting began cutting in Kansas last week and has been on the go ever since. Mom and Dad helped move the boys to Plainville, Kan., then doubled back down to Enid, Okla., to finish getting the rest of the equipment. Brandon and his crew whittled away in Plainville and were able to complete that job at the beginning of this week. The wheat near Plainville had quite the range of yields, making between 30 to 70 bushels per acre. The different varieties of wheat seemed to impact these broad yields. The area remains awfully dry, but luckily a few big snowstorms this winter ended up saving the wheat crop. Meanwhile, Mom and Dad finished jockeying the last of the machinery from down south to northern Kansas. They began our next job in Hoxie, Kan., with the CR 9060 and a grain trailer. Brandon, Jose, Eric and Kasey completed their work in Plainville a couple of days ago and made the 70-mile journey to Hoxie to join my parents. The most exciting news is that I will officially be reunited with the crew in just a day or two—wahoo! Ashley, Kurt, Augie dog and I will travel to Kansas to meet the family for the Fourth of July and to enjoy a weekend of harvesting together!
