Started into my own yesterday afternoon. I dont know what way its yielding per acre yet but it's not weighing in the trailers like it should. Moisture started out at 21% in the first field which I ended up leaving as it was increasing as I crossed it. The field I finished up in last night was down to 13.6 moisture.

I had to leave a field yesterday also but the grain was 14% only the straw was absolute silage

We could do with another week of this weather to get straw saved nicely. I can't see any of what I've cut so far been anywhere near fit before this rain arrives tomorrow.

Finished up baling straw, it was rattling dry after all that sun.

A 4x4 and a 5x4 bale, the 4x4 is 4 ft 2 inches high and the 5x4 is 5 ft 10 inches high.

Final load of Valerie was getting low on moisture, total average yield of just over 4 tons/acre.

Banging away here at the Cassia since Tuesday. Some crops that were standing up until recently have brackled in the heat making a bit more work for the combine but the weather is certainly a dream. No yields yet as grain is being tipped in the shed. Grain isn't holding for long without aeration so we started delivering this evening. First load was 15.1% and 70.6kph.

Still have 2 days winter barley left, 1 day still isn't ripe as regards green straw and the rest is delayed by nearly 2 days with a breakdown which hopefully should be fixed sometime tomorrow, its great fun these days wrinching at a combine in the heat listening to all the neighbours flat out.

Did you get a big break?

Straw hard enough to bale, pickup choked a good few times, very dry. That’s 10.4%.
Anyway, all baled now better than messing in the rain. Like Rebelman trying to get customers to commit to how many they want is the biggest issue.
