Any folks harvesting grass seed?

I’m in Southern Louisiana, primarily using my 7700 to harvest grass seed, mainly Bahia & Carpetgrass so far and potentially dallisgrass and Ryegrass. Is there anyone out there that is also harvesting grass seed?

Ryegrass. Should be swathing in 3 weeks or so. Been very dry this year so not much of a crop.

Glad to hear I’m not alone, seems like most folks are picking up corn and beans... I was starting to wonder if I was the only one still picking up grass. What machine are you using for the Ryegrass?

1680 and 1688 case IH. My 8120 case sits in the shed until all the grass is done.

We are combining brome-grass with both of our John Deere S680s. Just installed a slow-down-fan-speed-kit a couple days ago.

I would love to be able to grow a good stand of bromegrass down here.

Is anyone using a pickup head to harvest grass seed? I’ve heard of the cereal guys using a pickup head. Right now everyone around here uses the conventional reel heads but I’m interested to see if we could get a little more efficient with a pickup header, specifically for grass seed..
