Week 7 Pat Feldpausch Farms

This past week we began wheat harvest for our farm and our customers. We have around 2800 acres of wheat to harvest in total between our fields and our customers. All of the wheat that we are harvesting this year is either Soft Red Winter Wheat or Hard Red Winter Wheat depending on the field. At the beginning of the week we were scrambling to get all of our combines and combine heads ready, but by Wednesday we were pretty much done and ready to go if the weather was willing to cooperate with us. As a farm we own 2 combines but during wheat harvest we run with 3. A customer of ours, who allows us to pay an hourly rate for his combine and an operator during wheat harvest, owns the third one. We should be able to finish with wheat harvest in a week and a half or 2 weeks given all of our equipment continues to function properly.
