  • The Wellington Advertiser - Harvest for Hunger a huge success as cash raised nears $250,000
    bushel sold to the public was 1 000 As auctioneers often do the crowd was asked if others wanted a bushel at that price Almost 20 bushels were quickly taken up The first two large lots of 1 600 bushels each were taken up by the grain trade at 36 per bushel well above market price More precise numbers will be available once the final weight of the soybeans is known This is a world record in its own right said Elbert van Donkersgoed a spokesperson for the Harvest for Hunger committee said The farmers are a little disappointed that their pace was a little off the time set by Manitoba farmers in swathed wheat last year That pace was 11 minutes 8 seconds Every farmer will tell you that organizing a speed harvest in standing soybeans was much more challenging than in swathed wheat van Donkersgoed said The Manitoba attempt included cutting and windrowing the grain in the days before the harvest This allowed combines to line up beside each other with ample space between them In standing grain combines have to cut overlapping swaths and be behind each other in a staggered pattern When asked why the thoroughly planned event did not meet the 10 minute target the answer was the typical challenges that farmers face every day equipment break down and equipment jams At least two of the combines plugged up and another two had equipment failure van Donkersgoed said The combines that had no trouble completing their swath did so in less than the target 10 minutes but a number were needed to turn around and cut part of a swath for those that were out of the race Whether the group met its goals for people who attended were thrilled In a letter sent to the Advertiser Marlin Stoltz of Stoltz Sales Service said The whole day was a miracle It was truly an awesome day Congratulations to all a job well done I hope that more people will be as inspired as I was with the events of the day Thank you for allowing me to be part of Harvest for Hunger It will be an experience that I will remember for a long time People can also increase the support for the hunger relief effort by donating a bushel for 20 on the website of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank Canadian Foodgrains Bank is a partnership of Canadian Christian churches and church based agencies working to end hunger in developing countries The harvest was extensively documented There were two fixed wing aircraft and three helicopters over the site There were cameras on four skyjacks on combines and in the field on utility vehicles Early results can be seen at http harvest4hunger wordpress com October 21 2011 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals
