New equipment has provided interesting start to harvest
A southwestern Indiana farmer says there was a slightly rocky start to the harvest season with a new combine and grain leg and pit.
Mark Seib says “we started that process, and everything took off and went extremely well. We were shelling 25 percent corn and I was extremely happy. Five hours into our harvest time we had a problem with the gear box on the grain leg. Someone came over and repaired the gear box, put a new one on, and got us back up to running that night, and we haven’t missed a beat since.”
He tells Brownfield the new combine has been great.
“The technology on the new machines is unbelievable with what it can do, the settings you put it at, and the different things you can do are pretty amazing nowadays,” he says.
Seib grows corn and soybeans in Posey County.
