Yeah thanks guys, that's me in the second picture with my Australian Made Akubra known as the "Bronco"(Might as well premote an well made Australian product). I have plenty of farming photos that I would like to show & share and when I have some more time (at university) I'll put them in the Planting & Tillage and Tractor threads. We farm on 90'' beds which allows us to irrigate the paddocks if we have the water and allows us to get some higher yields. The front was taking in 4 beds at a time and it was good that the contractor was able to widen its wheel spacing to meet our row-crop configurations. Yeah the soil here is unbelievable self-mulching and will grow almost everything, gets hot in the summer up to 42 degrees celius and get down into the minus figures in winter.

Thanks for the comments guys/girls! I'm not real sure why he extended the auger I guess to keep chaser bins away from the fronts. Thank god we dont have emu's, roo's and wild pigs on our property cause gee they can make a mess close by the rive they have roos and pigs.

A friend of mine has a new NH CR970 with a 42ft draper and gee its look great. I reckon NH build the best looking and appealing harvester to date. The TR 99 looks like its was made from a thousand pieces of steel but they are good machines and this one actually goes better with heavy crop going through it.

We have our biggest wheat crop we have ever grown this year atleast half of the farm. We had decent rain just days after planting finished, and about 2 weeks ago we got more plus some runoff off the paddock and stored that in our dams which we will use later when it goes to flower. So we are looking at a great season this year.

Hopefully I'll be at home for the harvest and i'll get some more photos up. But keep checking my account at photobucket for all operations on farm during the year.

Cheers Camel
