As a small boy the exciting things that happened on the farm were threshing and haying, in that order.

I was born in 1938 on the farm that I now farm.

Threshing was still the way to harvest oats, wheat, and barley when I was growing up in Sac County, Iowa near the small town of Auburn.

August 19, 1984 threshing. Arlin Sigmon pitching, Bobby Yttredahl on grain wagon, Phineas Blanchfleld on his 25-40 Allis-Chalmers. Larry Ludwig leaning on wheel.

I can still remember standing on the fence by the house and looking down the road to see if I could see the first bundle rack and team coming.
