I am a custom forage harvester and chop wheat, alfalfa, all kinds of grasses, sorghum and corn. Mary and I started this business in 1988 in the Phillipsburg, Kansas area with a John-Deere 5460.
We hire around 25 guys to drive trucks every season from March to November. The skilled crew and I stay in three bunkhouses, which can accommodate 24 people.
I also have a trucking business. Contact me for more information.
My equipment consists of three Claas 900 green eye machines with Kernel Processors and inoculant applicators, 18 semi trucks with 18 Versa chain-floor trailers and five 22 ft bobtail trucks with Versa chain-floors. I also have a 12 ft Versa Bagger, a Claas twin rake, and a pack tractor is also available.
We start the spring run in East Texas, cutting Rye, Coastal, Bermuda grasses and more for feedlots and diaries. Around the end of June, we continue the harvest cutting corn and sorghum in the East Texas area. The larger jobs start in August as we move north to the Texas Panhandle and chop for feed yards. Near the end of the season, we work in Colorado.
