We’re halfway through Grain Rush driven by Great Plains Ford and today we treated Melanie Alexander and her crew to some delicious KFC.  

Melanie noted that her crew is spread over a big area. 

“South of Weyburn is the main farm,” she said. “We rent land east of Weyburn and also by Ralph and then around Pangman...all over, yeah.” 

She noted that they also cast a wide net on what they grow. 

“Wheat, canola, lentils, it kind of varies,” she said. “It’s better because you don’t know what it will be like that year, certain crops do better than others.” 

With harvest well underway, we’re happy to treat Melanie and the crew to some KFC! A special thank you to today’s sponsor, EastWey Autobody, along with KFC and Great Plains Ford.  

You can join the winner's circle and enjoy lunch on us! Enter now!
