I don't question the records numbers because they're in the middle 5000 bushel per hour . But 6500 for even an hour doesn't seem possible. Especially 17 -18 percent corn.

Scales there weigh in bushels?!
What scale is used for anything else?
Holy Christ, your country is even more backward than I thought!
And I really think it’s backward!

I doubt it’s affected as much as small grains or canola due to the low mog, but corn throughput will be reduced as it get tough?

Corn doesn't really "get tough" quite the way other crops do--the seed does not absorb moisture like beans or wheat would. Its got nothing to do really with the MOG...its the moisture of the seed itself. The corn seed itself more dries down linearly by time--the longer it is in the field, the dryer it gets. The plant itself can get wet, of course, but we try to send most of that out the stalk rolls rather than thru the machine. On the flip side of that, wet corn (read-combined to early) can be NASTY--30% moisture corn gums up everything like glue and is very hard to run thru a combine. As the moisture drops, the corn shells easier and flows easier--you can run more 15% moisture corn thru than at 20%. Shelling corn, its not the "conditions" so much as how dry the seed has become. (within reason of course!)

With small grains the greater mog and doing tough or damp likely accounting for 90% of the extra power required, with corn it like 90% of caused by the grain itself not the minimal mog.

As shown by fuel consumption comparison per tonne of my best in barley, corn only uses about 30% off the fuel due almost entirely by the super low mog.

The clean grain elevator capacity would be effected by the moisture considerably. Obviously if your shooting for a record your looking for as close to dry as you can.

Scales here weigh in anything you want them to way! They'll even puke out a goofy metric number if you desire! All it takes is a bit of simple math to convert from pounds to whatever you desire, it can't get any simpler.

I've heard for 30 years we don't need to learn SAE because its going to be all metric in just a bit, barely taught us SAE in school, had to self educate. Guess what, metric hasn't taken over and chances are never will.

Really I don't care either way, its just fun to poke Don with a stick sometimes.

Don't blame the baker when the butcher bakes the bread.

I prefer my no math, no conversion system.
Best way to avoid conversion error? Don’t convert!

I think in the video it was mentioned a rain the night before. If so, the corn moisture reading most likely would be a few % higher early in the day compared to 10 hours later.

I would think and expect that some of the numbers in the video to be taken from the combine monitor. How else would one know roughly how many bushels were harvested at the 1 hour mark without stopping!?

I would certainly expect the 8, 10, and 12 hour bushel number to come from the scales, for sure the 12 hour mark.

Corn is backward from other crops, you can go faster when it's tough because the leaves and husks go through the snapping rolls instead of through the seperator. Just cobs
& chaff to seperate ! No suprise the first hour put up a big number..
