Used an auger for a couple years before the grain cart showed up. It worked good, but was a bit more temper mental than straight from the cart.. Made up a spout out of an old threshing machine discharge spout, and tied it up to the auger on the end of the flexible plastic spout. If you get a spout that extends and retracts it works best, as the length changes quite a bit between the start/end and when the auger is directly above the hopper. For moving the swing away ahead each time, tied a rope from the swing auger to the step on the tractor to pull the swing away each time we moved. Also put a rope and a weight between the auger and bagger tractor, and had it set so when you got far enough ahead for the next load, the weight came off the ground. I saw a video of someone using an auger with the auger steer on it, and drove the swing auger beside the bagger. Seemed to work good in the video. Good luck, your dogs will be busy chasing the ravens away!
