A year dominated by the weather. We were lucky to finish harvest only a week later than normal, on August 3Ist. Many other parts of the country – particularly in the north – were still combining in mid-October. After a decade of (relatively) easy harvests, this time it paid to be over-equipped. Our four large combines and a big drier made life simple, albeit very expensive. It was only in November that we began to find unpleasant things going on in the grainstore, with bugs and hot wheat giving us problems we had never experienced before.
