I got a taste of life on the custom wheat harvester road today in North Dakota. The New Holland Harvest Support team was called out to help the Rolands update some software on their CR8090 combine. Here’s the Roland team along with a couple members of the New Holland support team getting it done.
While we were waiting for some software to download I visited with Brandon Roland. He and his Dad Alan run a fleet of three New Holland combines. Brandon says the harvest support team is their “lifeline.” He says it’s easier for him to deal with the same person all season instead of different people in different locations as they move north through the harvest. I also learned that Brandon and his Dad were featured in the History Channel show, Harvest, back in 2011!

By the way, in case you haven’t checked it out, New Holland sponsors High Plains Journal’s All Aboard Wheat Harvest which follows the harvest telling stories from the field.
