Re: Bourgoin Corn-Picker
I saw this Boutgoin corn-picker at the 2010 Expo Champs up in Quebec.

http://www.bourgoin.fr/

I am not sure why they wen to France to buy this picker. The Oxbo must be good too.

Nothing new corn pickers were commonly used I believe way into the 70's.

Powered bty a John Deere engine. :-D

Re: Re: Bourgoin Corn-Picker
By harvesting the cobs and storing them in corn cribs they literally have no drying costs, it's all done by nature. But you can't store corn that is too wet in cribs either.

But I don't think that it always works that well, if not more people would do it. And one problem is that you still have the cob and not only the corn kernels.

Re: Re: Bourgoin Corn-Picker
bourgoin corn pickers are very popular in my country, because lot of farmers still use old corn storehouse for the corn cob where is corn dry by the "mother nature" or it mil whole wet cob for silage. but the most of them are older models md-8 , md-10 , gx-306 and gx-406.
