    Got a quote today. .83 a loaded mile for wheat. That's about the lowest I've seen in years.

    Sounds like between out-of-state trucks and greedy grain merchants, rates are still pityfull out there WH. Sorry to hear that,hope the rates pick up more than that for you folks out west.

    Wheat looks really good around here,but its probably 3-4 weeks out still,at least. We have had so much moisture that its still purty green. Been steady here hauling,not super busy,but decent.


    Hows your family,hope all is well. Feel really bad for the Oklahoma folks,man they have been hit hard. Anybody heard from Big John or highside lately,hope they are ok.

    Big John is out of Enid. You're right haven't heard from him in long time. Could be he's doing something besides hoppers now.

    Wheat harvest is just about here...maybe next week. Thinking there's going to be some long lines and long days. The only thing moving right now is corn to the feedlots.

    Hello
    Does anyone have an idea of how to get the blackish grayish rings off of a white hopper bottom? I think this is caused by the salt and chloride from winter roads. I just purchased this trailer and started hauling grain and have noticed this over the tridums and at the front of the trailer where the tire spray would be. I was told by one person to use iron out. Anybody got any other ideas or is that the way to go.
    Thanks Terrance

    Some truck washes use orange citrus solution on hoppers. Others use acid but it's hard on the trailer. Never heard of using iron out so can't comment if it works.

    Never thought of that. I don't know why I didn't think of that I use to use that on my oil trailer to get crude off of it. I will have to try it. Thanks

    Is anyone still following this thread? No new posts since June. Are there any areas that have started harvest?

    Welcome to the site. I saw some pretty good corn coming off Saturday in SW AR/NW LA along the Red River. They said it was making about 200 bu.

    Corn and beans around ally of MN is really suffering from heat and lack of moisture.

    Guys are making corn silage now while there is still some moisture in the plant.
