Thrashing Bee Videos

Here are three short videos of the Palouse Empire Threshing Bee that is held each Labor Day at Colfax, Washington.

The first is the actual cutting the wheat.  The team pulling the horse-drawn combine is a six abreast of Percheron Mules owned by Jon Overmyer.

The next step in the harvest is the actual threshing of the wheat, here it is being transferred from the field wagons.

The people carrier actually takes folks out into the field for a close up view of the action.

Due to operator error the videos are much shorter than I had planned on or thought I was filming.  I guess there is always next year!
