ANDY DOLE

Farm Location: Central Illinois

Crops: Corn and soybeans

Favorite Crop to Harvest: Soybeans

Favorite Part of Harvest: It is always awesome to bring in a season's worth of hard work. We can analyze our actions for the year to improve into the future.

Favorite Piece of Harvest Machinery: Grain cart

Favorite Harvest Tip: A full night's rest makes hard days much less stressful.

Favorite Post-Harvest Activity: I enjoy a few days of doing nothing after a long few months of harvest. It sure helps to unwind a little bit after wrapping up another crop year!

Favorite Midland Product for Harvest: The MXT500 paired with the 6dB antenna is hard to beat. The high wattage of the radio and great reception of the antenna result in phenomenal audio quality and range. It is nice being able to talk over long distances in a short amount of time.

Favorite Midland Product for Harvest: Walkie talkies! Working with your spouse/father (or any family) can be a great way to do life, but communication is KEY. If you've ever misheard a direction, or didn't see the right hand signal, you'll know! Having our Midland MicroMobiles in the tractor cabs and the walkie talkies in the semis have been such a game changer for us! We actually talk more throughout the day now since we don't have to worry about cell service or our phones dying!
