    There was 2 of us show up at Doanes in Washington Courthouse the same day with loads of poultry meal that had been loaded hot . Each one took over 3 hours to get off .

    Don't you have a belt trailer? Guess that's why I haul grain to bypass the digging and hacking to get a load off.

    How long did it sit on the trailer,Rodeoman? Never heard of anything much not coming off those belt trailers. Dang,it must have been steaming when it was loaded.

    Maybe 15 mins. It was old wet distillers grain that was practically dry cake lol it was a night mare. My belt hydraulics would stall..

    Been awhile since I've posted. I've been hauling wheat to flour mills last 3-4 weeks. I really don't know whether there will be much of a wheat harvest this year or not.... weather has been so crazy. Harvest supposedly seven weeks away.

    Wheat harvest is around 3 weeks away depending on weather. The flood of out of state trucks will begin shortly. Feeling we are going to have too many trucks here as usual. In theory they have that many trucks to get the grain hauled...I think it's to keep rates low.
