Great photos.
Kind of interesting to see the old iron juxtaposed with the big new stuff.

'Couple questions.....what does "swmbo" stand for? Is there a child riding along with you guys also?

Nice photos....sure wish you didn't have to run such "junk" for harvest.

I know nothing about soybeans, so this is a request for information, not a criticism.

Is that about the optimum spacing for the rows? Seems like a lot of empty space between rows. But maybe if they're too crowded you run into diminished yield or grade? Or more likely to run out of moisture in a dry year?

Glennster if I am not mistaken you own and operate a body shop and a wrecker service full time? Is that correct and farm on the side? Is that your combine or is it a custom operator ? I did not think that you farmed that much ground on the side to own a combine that big and that new. How many acre of corn and beans to you farm on the side?
