There was a time 80 years or so ago when this one-row corn picker was considered state-of-the-art, replacing the horse-drawn wagon and picking ears by hand.

After being approached by Reinke, Ashleigh and Jason Noyes decided it would be the perfect time for a face lift for their business. They have recently remodeled their office space and have even more plans for the future. Noyes Irrigation’s crew includes (l-r) Nikki Toner, Ashleigh Noyes, Jason Noyes, Dick Noyes, Drew Maier, Steve Baker, Tony Morales, Carlos Trejos and Star Kemling.
Noyes Irrigation is undergoing changes to the office, both in appearance and what they offer customers.
Jason Noyes of Noyes Irrigation was present at the regular monthly meeting on September 17 and had the honor of being selected as the business spotlight for September. Noyes Irrigation has been in business for over a decade and is proud to be the new Reinke dealer in town. Passerby’s may notice that the Noyes Irrigation/Noyes Quality Homes building that sits on the corner of Hwy’s 23 and 61 is receiving a new face lift as well. Noyes says he is excited about the opportunity to become a Reinke dealer and hopes it will also allow him to add a few more employees. Noyes Irrigation can be reached by calling 308-352-2660, or stopping at their office during regular business hours.
Since June, the Scoular grain receiving and storage site nine miles north of Grant has been a beehive of activity, especially in the last several months.
This year’s fall harvest season is here. Much of the dry bean harvest has been completed with the wet corn harvest on it’s heels. The irrigated corn still needs a good freeze to dry down but picking on some of those fields is already underway. DCN Farms Harvesting of Imperial was picking a field of irrigated corn just west of Grant Monday.
Putting up wet corn is an annual ritual at Imperial Beef, where they expect to take in five million bushels this harvest. Tractors with blades and speed movers make their way up the pile as it grows day by day.
