The Week

It was raining this morning and the forecast is for rain and cold for the rest of the week. On Saturday we started swathing with the pulltype swathers. We have one pusher swather that is a Hesston 8100. This week at our school we have people from La Tabatiere, Quebec. They are on an exchange fom there. This week they are at our school doing activities, and 2 weeks fom now our students will go there. The ages that are there are gr.9-12. Today they went on a trip to a cattle farm and to Vetern to the cattle market there. The wet weather isn't good for the harvest; crops are already a couple weeks behind and the rain just keeps pushing them back. Some people have started combining early crops but the major crops like wheat, and durum aren't ready. Some barley is ready. With the setback on harvest, the Quebec kids might not see lots of harvesting.

  1. No the Quebec students didn't get to see much harvesting but we tried to show them the machines and the process. I think they had lots of fun. Would you like to do an exchange when you get older? Where would you like to go?
