When we say agriculture in the city, we mean it.
Today, March 18th, 2010 we parked this combine in front of the Forks in preparation for this weekend’s event! Come check it out!
This 16-tonne piece of farm equipment weighs about the same as 8 average automobiles.
Combines have become extremely powerful, efficient and sophisticated over the years. In fact, the world record for most wheat harvested in 8 hours is held by New Holland. Their biggest combine (the CR9090) harvested enough wheat in that period of time to make 1.1 million loaves of bread! That’s enough to give one loaf to each person in Manitoba.
Come get your picture taken beside this $500,000 machine… these don’t come into town every day!
Thank you to Mazergroup and Renolds Transport for helping to get it here!
