Welcome to Beck Brothers Harvesting
This will be my 18th harvest in a row. The first three years I went with Dale Beneke out of Bushton, KS in the summers mainly till I graduated college (Emporia State University). Then the next 5 years I started a grain trucking business called Lucky Trucking (named for our best bird dog). I would haul grain for local elevators and farmers in the winter time and go with Dale during the summer and get my fair share for my truck and my help. Then in 2000 he retired and my brother Jeff and I purchased his combines and service truck then went on the same basic route he had established those many years. By then, I knew those folks pretty well. My brother and his family decided to stay home more, now that their kids were getting school age. So I went from a two combine operation to one.
