Cleaning Wheat

Cleaning Wheat

This week we are also cleaning wheat. Our friend Al has a mobile cleaner that he pulls from farm to farm. The wheat is augered from the bin to the cleaner. The cleaner sorts out the odd size and weight kernels. The cleanings are augered on to one truck and the cleaned grain on to another. Then it is hauled to another grain bin for storage until seeding time. Today was cold with wind blowing from the south east. Al is a tough guy but he quit before dark because the wind was getting to him.


About Beer Ranch

I'm a farm/ranch wife and mother of 4. I've lived all my life on a farm caring for Angus cows. Currently we raise cattle and a variety of crops including wheat, corn, sunflowers, millet and peas. It is a great life and great way to raise children. We live and learn everyday about the world God has made for us. We try to find better ways of taking care of the land while raising food for people.
