    Actually I don't know them personally but the two guys on the combine are in there early 3os and the girl on the 7530 is about 21 I think. The guy in the check shirt turned out to be a friend of a guy with whom I studied Ag engineering with about 10 years ago now.
    There was two combines operating father and son operating one each but they weren't running side by side, can't win em all I guess, and the girl is a daughter, biggish outfit, for these parts anywho, about 15 units all JD including tractors, combines and self propelled forage gear plus a shed load of the required accessories.

    It was so bright I couldn't review what I taken till I got home so I was flying on instruments a lot of the time, glad they turned out.

    Thanks for the reviews

    Oregon's Willamette Valley is known as the grass seed capitol of the world.

    Thanks...had these on my Facebook, from the summer of 2014. Just happened to see this John Deere working a big patch of grass seed while coming back from a day-trip to the Oregon coast.Near where I grew up, this was in the Salt Creek area, right off of Highway 22.

    I found another early 20-teens grass seed combining set on my Facebook. My FIRST-ever use of the Fuji S5 Pro camera I had bought a few years earlier (had it new in box for five years before I ever shot it! Used it this one, single day, and only one other day since!. Please

Excuses and rationalizations out of the way...now for the pics! As you combine-junkies can see, the pick-up headers are on rubber-tired wheels: the grass is cut earlier with a swather, which windrows it, and the stuff is allowed to cure, and is often pretty high up off the ground...the header does not cut the grass ('aka hay'), but just brings it, already cut and cured,minto the combine for the threshing and separating operations. And there is a TON of dust...much,much,much worse than in wheat or oat combining. The plumes are sometimes visible for miles.

    Some old and not so old machines at a "Silage extravaganza" as it was billed last weekend back.

    Looking at them now I think a few are too bright. I like number 4 most out of this batch.

    I'm going to take a liberty and post this video here... the first start in 40(?) years of our club's Ford flathead equipped Northwest Model 15 shovel. It's not quite ready to move under it's own power... yet.
