In the Cove
Cutting in the "Cove" at Delou's.....the 8010 has just left
the truck landing and is spooling up before jumping off. :-D

The 8010 has left the top of the ridge and has hit the
wheat.

A fun detail of the 8010 down in the "Cove" :-D The 36 foot
draper platform really eats the stuff.

A little different angle from down in the "Cove". Trucks
waiting in the background at the landing. ;-)

Re: In the Cove
Getting down to the turn. The layout on this run allows the
combines to transit the steepest part of the slope with a
light load in the grain tank. ;-)

heading back to the landing. :-D

Re: In the Cove
Hi John McManigal!

Real nice machines and scenery! I've gathered that you farm
somewhere in the north-west states? I was just wondering,
doesn't it get really wet on the bottom of that cove during
the rains, making it impossible to harvest? I've always
thought that that area of the States is quite dry so that
you can't farm things like say corn (naturally the steep
hillsides would prevent it also:-D), so don't the highest
points of those hills suffer from drought real easily? What
is the soil like on those hills? Must be really fertile. :-\
In Finland all the hills even close to maching yours, are
bare of soil :-)

Best regards, agricult

PS. How was the wheat this year in general? In Finland the
harvest hasn't yet begun. The yield looks ok, apart from
some spots that haven't had ebough water. :-)

Re: In the Cove
Hi Agricult!! Yup, we are located in Oregon near The Dalles,
about 100 miles east of Portland Oregon. It is rather dry
here; the rainfall runs about 12 to 15 inches per year. The
light rainfall allows us to farm the steep
hills; the rain comes a little at a time so the dirt stays
put. There has been erosion over time, so we have switched
to a no till drill. This years crop was in serious trouble,
as we had very little rain all winter. At the last minute,
in May, we got some nice rains and that saved this crop.
So far, the yields have been really good, running 70 plus
BU. per acre. :-D Here is another shot of the 8010 working
in the "Cove", shot from the truck landing as operator Dave
Wilson lays the run out. Greetings to Finland! :-D
