Was that 2007? Spring came early the wheat looked beautiful, it had already headed out and then the snow and ice hit. Ours still made 25 but before the storm it could have gone 60.

Yeah, 2007 sounds about right. Like you said, we had lots of early warmth and moisture and the wheat was looking like it was going to be ripe by Memorial Day. Things were pretty ugly after the snow and ice all melted.

My dad always said 1961 was the worst. What wheat he did combine might have made 10 bushel per acre. He cut a lot of the crop to bale for feed figuring it was the best plan.
My worst was 1988. Dry and hot produced a short thin wheat crop. Nice quality but barely ten bushels per acre. Should have had a direct cut header but at the time I was still swathing everything. The Massey pull type 21 foot laid as good a swath as was possible in that short crop. The Sund pickup on the 510 was wound right out to full speed trying to scratch up that thin swath into the 510 Massey. I don't think I have ever done so many acres in a day before.
The barley turned out a little better and I was able to make a fairly good swath as seen in this video from August 88.
