The boys have "helped" unload several loads at our grain bins across from the store. The hubs said G was skeptical about wearing the earphones, but got used to it. It is very loud with the unloading and the dryer running at the same time. You can hear the dryer from our house. Landon caught him pulling them away from his ears a few times and then putting them back on. Guess he was comparing the noise difference. ;)
Now we play the waiting game. We wait as long as possible for the prices to come back up in the commodity market. Their are no grain elevators close to here so that doesn't help. When we contract with Mauney, they usually haul it to Kershaw, South Carolina. (Mauney grinds feed too, but most of it goes on to SC) When we sell to Talley, they make their own feed so it stays right there.... but we have to haul it to them, whereas Mauney comes and picks it up.
Thank God we have grain bins so we can hold out selling as long as we can. Maybe the market will bounce back up soon. Isn't that the farmers motto? Next year will be better.
Side Note: See the gray hairs in the hubs goatee? He says he is going to be a silver fox, lol.
What do we do now? Get the combine ready for beans, of course!
