Being the corn crop here isn’t the best, the guys decided to fill two of the silos along with the bunker with silage. You may remember that the guys filled the bunker last week. Now they are onto filling the silos.
My hubby works the blower position. He makes sure the silage gets into the blower and into the silo. The silage in the wagon dumps into the blower. I blows the silage up the tube to the top of silo and then it falls into the silo.
The silo filling hasn’t gone as smoothly as the bunker filling did. The chopper broke two separate times bringing them to a complete stand still. They had been planning to finish up earlier in the week but with the breakdowns that didn’t happen. Now of course the oppressive heat is back and they are sweating through it. Working, doing these jobs, with heat indexes up in the lower 100’s is no fun.
Typically the loads get hauled so quickly in and out that they do about 60 loads a day. The wagons are constantly moving.
Just a few minutes ago I heard the blower stop. I looked out the window to see a big line up. I was worried that the blower had broke down.
Not another break down!! Then I realized the first silo was full and now they are filling the second silo.
Keep your fingers crossed for no more break downs.
