American Harvest
This picture is from the 2001 harvest season. It was taken
on our farm in the Platte River valley of Eastern Nebraska.
Pictured is a John Deere 8820 combine with 643 head and a
John Deere 4630 tractor pulling a Killbros 1400 grain cart.
I added the background using Adobe Photoshop. I thought it
was a cool touch. Happy Harvesting!:-)

Re: American Harvest
Very cool stuff Doug. I am a farm boy from Alabama who now
owns an advertising/graphic design company so I know
Photoshop inside and out. It is one of the top three
applications I use in art production along with Adobe
Illustrator and Quark X-Press. I guess you could say that
they are sort of my “4020-8630” of the present day. My
father still farms here in Alabama and I still help out when
he needs a break. This photo you made really hit home with
me and I must admit, I got a lump in my throat when I first
saw it. Love the 4630. We used to have one in the early to
mid 70’s but we traded it for an 8630 in about ’77 or so. By
the way, I was visiting your neck of the woods (Lincoln) a
fews weeks ago as my girlfriend who works for IBM is working
on a software implementation for the State of Nebraska. We
got tickets to the Nebraska - Troy State football game and
really had a great time and the people are very friendly.
Really good folks those Nebraskans. Best of luck with your
farm. I know you guys had a tough one up there this year
with the drought but hopefully you guys can bounce back.
Thanks again.
Later,
John

Re: American Harvest
why don't you run an 8 row head on a 8820. also why do you
run a six row narrow head, but your 4630 is spread out for
36" rows. must not be a ridge tiller. Most reputable platte
valley boys are ridge till.

Re: American Harvest
Hey guys,

Thanks for the comments. I haven't gotten a chance to check
this post in a while. Yes I AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN.
Just as everyone from who posts on this site is proud to be
part of their nation. No matter what prt of the world it
is. Agriculture is is a world wide cooperation of some of
the greatest folks in the world. Thanks Stu for being a
great moderator for this site.

Also, just for the details. We were running a 644 head in
this picture at about 5 mph. Just this season we switched
to 30 inch rows and now are running an 843. We do ridge
till, so the switch this year gave us a lot of ground to
work that we normally don't. So our 4630 and 4840 got quite
a workout. But the change has paid off, even though we had
about 1 inch of rain between May and July, our irrigated
corn is averaging about 225 bushels to the acre.

I hope to have some new pics up soon. Hope to see everyone
else's harvest photo's. God Bless.

Doug

Re: American Harvest
Hey!
I am German and i don't realy care about what u Americans
think of us :-P
I like Americans, not because of what they're doing, i like
them, because they are cool guys! Expecially the Farmers,
because they all own that huge machines and tractors. :-)
i have already been to the US, and have also visited some
farms in illinois and enjoyed it very much.

Re: American Harvest
Does it matter what nationality you are ??
Every group of people has a right to be proud of their
community, culture, achievements, or what else makes them
unique. No matter if they are from a country that is the
world's last remaining super power, or a poor third world
country. I know people who went to Africa to build a
hospital for a local township. The person i spoke, felt
hostility, the local African population didn't like this
overkill of help from the Western world, in this case it is
conflicting with their (national) pride.


The world would be very boring if we were all the same. That
is the indirect cause of failure of the Communist system.
Not everyone is a farmer, not everyone is a writer, not
everyone is a leader, not everyone is a follower.
The middle east terror states that have one leader, that
must be followed by everyone or be killed, propagate that
America is satanic. They need to throw something up to keep
their "equal-oppressed" people quiet.

Americans are ordinary people that have their national pride
as any other country. Some Europeans just feel the American
pride as a threat because it is the last super power...
