KSAL’s Harvest Fest at Cargill Today

KSAL StaffJune 27, 2013

Combines are rolling in central Kansas and KSAL Radio’s “Harvest Fest” is in full swing.

KSAL’s Rich Alexander was in Abilene yesterday at the Gavilon Grain Elevator, celebrating an on-air tradition that continues to reach out to Kansas producers and families as the wheat harvest comes in.

Field crews can enjoy a cold drink and a slice of pizza on the house – then head back to the harvest.

The elevator located on the south edge of Abilene was bustling with trucks loaded with wheat that has test weights ranging from 60 to 62 pounds.

According to Darrell Faircloth, Manager at Gavilon, producers were bringing in 50 to 70 bushels per acre.

“Harvest Fest 2013” continues today in Salina, as the “Clarke Sanders Show” and KSAL’s “Friendly Fire” will originate from the Cargill facility in Salina.
