Rusty, the family dog, also makes an appearance in the the video and has his own cameo where he has a camera attached to him.

He can be seen checking the tyres and following the his owner, Jhan LaRosh, around the field.

Jhan’s daughter Kelli is also involved in the harvest and can be heard saying that the dog is following him.

“He’s my protector. He’s going to protect me from whatever,” Jhan replies.

Everything that goes with wheat harvesting is shown in the video; the cutting, the refuelling, nightime cutting and putting the grain into silos.

The equipment used includes a John Deere 8420 tractor, a 1959 John Deere 55 combine, a John Deere 9600 combine, a John Deere 9610 combine and a Case IH 8230 combine, according to the Kansas Farm Imagery, who filmed the video, YouTube channel.

The drone that was used was a DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone/quadcopter while Canon, Sony and Gopro were the other farmers used.
