Phil Hassinger of Cove follows a combine with a shovel and takes samples of straw to determine if the machine is doing its job efficiently during harvest of hard fescue, a type of grass, near the corner of McAlister Road and Buchanan Lane Monday. Hassinger is dryland farming the Russell Elmer-owned field. The straw remaining after harvesting will be baled and fed to cows locally.
