Earl Madsen took his ’37 John Deere B with his ’60’s era John Deere 2 row corn planter out for a spin this weekend. The corn planted is grown on the Texas Early Day Tractor and Engine Association’s show grounds and is harvested during our Summer club workdays and stored for use in our demonstrations during our Annual show (first weekend in October).
Thanks to all our participants at this weekend’s Workday/Tree planting. We got all the trees in the ground and irrigated before the end of the day. There is still an opportunity to donate for the trees if folks are interested.
On 8/06/14 Earl Madsen hooked up his ’37 John Deere B and set out to bring in the Corn at the Texas Early Day Tractor and Engine Association show grounds. 2 days and 2 carts later, he finished. To say we had a bumper crop this year is to put it lightly. The cooler weather and timely rain brought us in plenty of ears ready to shell for this year’s show. Thanks again to Earl for his effort in planting, maintaining and harvesting the corn! Be sure to look for Earl at this year’s show for his corn shelling demo!
Our workday for 5/31/14 didn’t go 100% as planned, but we did bring in the wheat. A special thanks to Earl Madsen, Jarrod Lancaster, the Haas Family and the Hargrove Family for all the work that had to be done to get the reaper up and running. And an extra thanks to Gene Haas for helping to prove the saying that “There’s no such thing as too much WD40!”
