Dan's harvesting operation started its inaugural season in 1992 with a John Deere 8820, a 1975 Kenworth cabover tandem and a 1975 Ford Louisville tandem. Dan began his harvesting career from scratch with sweat, hard work and faith in his ability to do quality work. Having a background in farming and harvesting of his own crops gave him the knowledge and experience to pursue this new business venture.
As each year went by, Dan updated the equipment to meet the needs of the customer as well as to stay current with technology and the many changes that took place in the John Deere combine industry. In 1997 Dan went from one 9600 to two 9600's and added the tractor and grain cart in the fall season. In the fall of 1997 Stephanie also joined Dan on the harvest run by leaving a full-time office job to take over the day-to-day operations to provide needed financial information as well as important items such as customer settlements, field yield reports, and many other aspects of business operations. She also provides good meals or an extra hand in the field which helps keep the harvest season running smoothly. In 2007, we purchased a third combine and we are currently still using three John Deere S770.
During the late fall and winter season we have our farm ground to get worked and ready for the next year. Dan also keeps busy with hauling grain and feed ingredients with one of our semi's and grain trailers. We have several semi and grain trailers that we will run is the winter also if we have a successful candidate for that position.
We are also proud members of the U. S. Custom Harvesters Inc.
