Re: "The corn monster" Lexion 600
Big A, my friend has to get 24 130 acre circles of corn in for the feedlot between 28% and 35% moisture so it can be ground and put in a pit. The window of opportunity to get this done is not very long, at best 2 weeks, so lots of capacity is a necessity. If we grew 145 bpa corn here we would be out of business in short order, if it isn't 200+ a person might as well have a auction. Pumping costs, fertilizer costs add up here fast. We have to irrigate our crops and the sprinklers never stop. Yes the fields are circles and when one gets finished move to the next one that is right next to it and never stop. The trucks are making a 20 mile round trip, lines at the feedlot, etc. yes MX270 keeping the combine moving is the key. Only had one breakdown this season, a row unit gearbox, the dealer had a unit on hand and were running in 2 hours.
