Cat in Milo. Pics (more pics)

These were taken yesterday and today. The date stamp is wrong on a couple of the pictures.

It's making 100+, 60lb test, 15%-17% moisture. We are taking it directly to the elevator.

I will try and get some pictures of the trucks tomorrow.

We have had a few problems, but once we have them figured out it runs like a dream.

Milo-Sorgum same thing. We don't grow milo very often, just when weather patterns mess with planting dates. The last time we raised milo was 3 or 4 years ago and it was over 100 b/a also. Both years the rain hit just right and freeze held off.

Here are some pictures from last time. PreCat days. Thank God the rain has not hit that got us that year. It's not near as muddy.



This is not me....I am the one on tracks....

Wow, those stuck pics are cool.

And thats a straight looking Lex. I like the look of them!

Is your sorghum irrigated or somthing? everyones Sorghum Pics always seem muddy etc. But the sorghum we cut is always dry as a Bone.

Just somthing I've noticed...

I think the Lexion has Maurer extension on it. I am not sure, it has no plate and that is the way it came. I have the original extensions in the shed if someone needs one.

It seems to get muddy when we have milo, that and if we have it in the field we would rather rut it out than let it go down. All our stuff is dry land.
