rrlund,
How large are your cribs? It is not to often that you see ear picking anymore. My husband filled 3 cribs each year, up until we rented the land out (about 7 years ago). Hard work when shelling time comes.

Good to see those Olivers and the White are earning their keep still. I would love to have a setup like yours for picking corn. Did you decide the White was too much for the picker?

Naw,I had to come home to unload anyway. By the time I got done eating supper it was raining. Doesn't hurt my feelings a bit. The corn was so dry Monday and Tuesday,that it was breaking off and laying down in the bottom of the primary elevator between the snapping rolls. I was having to crawl along in second gear. Had to keep stopping even then to let it clean out. There was some mist yesterday and a good rain this morning. It picked like a dream with those stalks toughened up. I ran right along in third. The corn went right through it like a mother in laws tongue through her son in law's business.

Want me to send you a bus ticket? I'm getting tired. I spent two weeks filling silo chopping with the White,hauling with the 1850 and pushing and packing with the 1600. Now I've been all week picking alone and have at least another week to go.

I couldn't even tell you. I've filled three one thousand crate cribs,pretty much one a day working alone. I've had worse corn,but it's not as good as it could have been with more rain. The ears are filled out OK,but kinda small.

Looks like a nice simple operation. How many acres can you do in a hour? Stan
