About the Author
Wesley F. Buchele is a professor emeritus at Iowa State University and consulting engineer. Before retiring in 1989, Buchele taught farm machinery design for forty-three years. He holds twentythree patents. The most important are: (1) the rotary threshing and separating cone-cylinder used in all modern rotary grain combines, and (2) the large round baler that is seen everywhere. Early in his professional life, Buchele spent three years (1948– 1951) researching cotton mechanization in the Mississippi Delta.
