Combine College sees 110 producers honing their combine expertise

About 110 people registered and attended the Combine College that took place in Portage la Prairie Thursday, with some familiar faces from previous events. It's the first time it's been held since start of the pandemic. It's put on by the Manitoba Pulse and Soybeans Growers, Manitoba Canola Growers and Manitoba Crop Alliance.

Russell Pauls of 58 West Farms was there from the Crystal City area, and took in some of the helpful sessions.

"I would say there's been some new stuff this morning that I've learned," says Pauls. "I've got a bit of an understanding of combines, but it's been a little bit more helpful just to listen to some experts and get their opinions. These guys have been running combines for 20 to 25 years."

Pauls says it's good to hear about what they've seen in the field, how they can pass their knowledge on, and see producers take what applies to their operations, and go from there.

"We don't run any of the combines that are here, so that's a bit of a bummer, especially for us," adds Pauls. "So, that's why I was in the general session this morning on managing crop loss."
