Gary with Gleaner
Here’s a harvest related photo from the late 60’s. It’s Gary and his dad working on their Gleaner combine. It’s remarkable how much Gary now looks like his dad did then. Back then, they were happy to harvest around twenty acres per day. Today, using newer equipment, we try to finish eighty acres in a day. The newer John Deere machine that we currently have has more than three times the horse power of the Gleaner. We’re very thankful for the improvements that technology has brought agriculture!
