Farming Photographs from the Deepwater Bay Bed & Breakfast

I CARRIED A CAMERA IN MY SHIRT POCKET MOST OF THE SUMMER IN 2007, AND HAVE MANY MORE PICTURES OF THE DIFFERENT FARMING OPERATIONS THAT OCCUR HERE.  THIS PAGE WILL SOON BE UPDATED TO GIVE AN ALL ENCOMPASSING VIEW OF WHAT GOES ON HERE.

Fertilizing with Anhydrous Ammonia


Fertilizing with Anhydrous Ammonia - 41 KB

 

 Anhydrous Ammonia in the rear tank, dry fertilizer and seed in the next tank.....one pass "no-till" seeding.....25-30 acres an hour

 

 It can be a dusty, dirty job on pea stubble

 

 Seed and dry fertilizer in the semi trailer

 

 Filling the tractor with fuel and the seed and fertilizer tank at the same time...thousands of $$$ down the drain in a few minutes!!!!

 Ronna's dad, Darris, watching the seed tank

 

 Elmer going to move the truck ahead to the fertilizer hopper

 

 

Spring Seeding

 The good old days using 40' conventional John Deere hoe drills....not nearly as efficient as the one pass Bourgault air seeder above

2005...the best oat crop we have ever raised....close to 180 bushels an acre

 We cut some with the mower conditioner for hay and it took forever to dry out enough to bale

 

 One hay hauling rig...we also use the semi which hauls 23 bales

 

 

Swathing canola into windrows so it will dry

 

The blue roller behind the swather pushes the windrow down into the stubble so it doesn't blow away

 

6 rounds done....many more to go

It takes about a week of hot weather to dry it enough to be combined

This barley field is dead ripe and waiting for the combine to harvest it while it is still standing

 

This 2388 Case IH combine with a 30' header makes short work of a big field of barley

It doesn't take long to load this semi-truck

Dusty outside....nice in the cab with lots of monitors and controls

View from the operator's seat

Swathing oats

 

The oats are swathed and now wait for the combine

Here it comes with a full hopper

 

It kept two trucks busy to move the grain to a bin

Harvest is over for 2007 as this field of hard red spring wheat has just been finished....truck heading for the bin

Combine is cleaned up and ready to go into the machine shed for another ten months or so

 

 

Augering Grain

 Grain is stored in round steel bins...taking grain back out to market
