I am Amazed Every Time I See Farmers At Work. ~ By Tom ~
As we were enjoying the evening ride through the backroads and enjoying the countryside of Minonk, Illinois we stumbled upon an awesome scene that I just couldn’t resist. Maybe it’s a boyhood thing (or girlhood) but there is something about the majesty of farmers and farm equipment. I wasn’t sure how to proceed but started taking some pictures and the next thing I know Tony who drives for Ruff Brothers invited me over with a hardy “ya wanna get to up close pictures? Well, I guess you can figure out what my response was. Before you know it I’m climbing up the side of the tractor of this 18 wheeler looking down into the trailer box with this huge John Deere 1000 Grain Storm trailer spewing corn into it. Oh well, I aint ashamed to admit I was excited. That’s when Nate the owner of the farm and equipment came over. We talked a bit and then I was on my way. He shared that the corn was being readied for market to be used to make ethanol which is a big commodity in this area. Thank you men for letting me look on and learn.
