2021 Jewell County wheat harvest starts


Saturday, June 26, this crew gathered in a wheat field west of Mankato to prepare wheat for this year's Jewell County Historical Society threshing bee. Bill Thomas drove the tractor which pulled the International Harvester binder operated by Dale Wright. The remainder of the crew shocked the wheat bundles.
