Wheat harvesting has begun on the Badger Mountain ranch of W.D. Hamilton. One of the biggest crops that has ever been grown in the Big Bend country will be harvested with farmers saying that all the conditions for a bumper crop have existed this spring and summer. It is estimated that the crop will run from 20 to 40 bushels per acre and in some cases 50 bushels. Much of the wheat will be harvested by the use of the header. With this method, the grain is headed and elevated into header boxes. From the machine, it is then either taken to the thresher or it is stacked. Another method used will be the combine, which will be drawn by about 32 horses. By use of this machine, the wheat is cut, threshed and stacked at the same time. The self binder is also coming into more general use where the farmer is able to handle the straw in an easier manner.
