9-4-14 Harvest Prep

Posted on September 5th, 2014

The growing season is winding down and harvest is just around the corner. The last couple of weeks have been filled with getting grains systems, dryers, combines, and grain carts ready to roll. One way or another, corn harvest for us will need to start in the next week since the pigs have eaten their way through most of last year's corn. As evidenced by the dramatic drop in market prices, the corn crop will be phenomenal. The soybean crop also looked excellent until a few weeks ago when sudden death syndrome began appearing all through central Illinois killing out spots in the fields (photo attached). Check back in a couple of weeks for a harvest update.
