So I fill every thing up and go home to start fresh the next day. I only have a small 1/4 of canola left, and a section of soys. In good shape.
Had an intern from France this year. He did great. Had a couple weeks he put in over 100 hours. One night I thought he was going to fall asleep standing there when we finally got finished up. These young guys Working for CAT dealer at a mine 100 hr weeks were common. One guy averaged over 100 hrs/week for the year. I do have to admit, without autosteer, I couldn't do it anymore.

Great looking crops. Looks better than anything in my area.

Sorry, for the late response @SouthernSK

We used our batch dryer (one of the old verticals with a recirculating auger)... and when that couldn't keep up, took it to our neighbour who has a 600 bu batch dryer and legs setup.


Only took about 35 minutes a batch @ 60C plus 30 mins dry down... pretty warm days, just really foggy/drizzly.
