Gensler Farms, Lexion Combines Near Rochelle, Illinois on 10-22-2011
A well-coordinated crew harvest a large corn field north of Rochelle,
Illinois. Leading the way were the two combines. A Cat Lexion 570R and a
Claas Lexion 740. Tractors included a Cat MT765C and a John Deere 8300
pulling Brent 1194 grain carts.
It was interesting to see equipment other than Case and John Deere.
I had hoped to include the names of the crew, but for now, I have posted
this video without that information.
According to the USDA Corn Crop Progress Report, as of October 23, 2011,
79% of the Illinois corn crop had been harvested. Compared to 96% the same
date in 2010.
Anyone wishing to get in touch concerning this or any other of my farming
videos please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, I would be pleased
to discuss future videos with other farm operations.

2012 Corn Harvest Part III
Harvesting corn near Maroa, IL, with a Claas Lexion 760 combine with a 16
row corn head, Challenger MT765C, and a 2096 Brent Avalanche grain cart.
Corn Machine! What do you mean CORN doesn't come from cans?
Special Double Feature Documentary. When my sister Debbie visited the USA
corn belt here last summer, she asked me how they pick all the corn.
Most of us eat corn and use the bi products like Ethanol, but have no idea
of the amazing harvesting process. Here we demonstrate the Big John Deere
Combine to pick, husk, and shell it all at once.
I was given a really great demonstration, by Ryan Eekhoff at Sibley
They are the local John Deere dealer, here in Sibley, Iowa, USA.
Special thanks also goes to Joel Van Gelder, owner of the farm, and his
Father In Law, Ted Schutte.
Both made me feel at home and were extremely knowledgeable about the
equipment and process of raising and harvesting Corn.
I was very impressed and truly learned a lot.
So, for those folks who have never seen anything like this before, we
certainly hope you enjoyed it and are enlightened.
Corn just doesn't come from cans.
