    Checked my corn yesterday, two fields under 18%, others 24-25%. By the time I have the combine ready those low fields should be about perfect. Get them done then switch to beans, hopefully the stems have dried by then. Beans are plenty dry but those stems....

    Thursday and Friday morning we will be in the low 20’s, I would think that would put you around 30, wouldn’t it?

    Hand shelled 29% a week ago on the sand by Grasston. Gunna be a few weeks I think before corn starts.

    Started beans tonite, 12.7-13.5.

    After Thursday and Friday morning, corn should shed some more moisture, I see the overnight lows going down to 23* and 25*   That should kill the plant the rest of the way, and start really drying out the corn

    This was 19 - 21%. 103 day corn, 1st planted, and on light soil. Most isn’t that dry yet.

    I think we have some corn that is close to 20-25% but overall, we aren’t there yet either

    Soybeans aren’t quite ready for us. But did take out some early corn on Thursday. Stay safe this harvest season.


    What are you seeing for moisture on the corn? You stay safe as well!

    Good luck and have a safe harvest. Our beans are close but we are getting showers and rain really often now.....

    Unfortunately, it sounds like after next week, we might have weekly storm patterns moving through for 2-3 weeks.  We don’t need that now!

    Nice pic. Best of luck for a good, safe harvest!


    Thank you! Normally my phone doesn’t take good night pictures, but somehow it worked last night?! But it’s funny how it was a lot darker when I took the picture, it somehow looks brighter in the picture?!

    Thanks Jeff!! If you find yourself bored, you can take the tanker off the Pete, and come pull hopper?!😬

    Is there a lot of crop farming without bins? Gotta think you would be at the mercy of the markets having to sell immediately?

    Yes, there are many farms, not so much in my area, but many farms a majority of their crop hits an elevator in the fall.  Maybe they store it at the elevator, but if that’s the case, even their storage is no longer available.

    Bins are a very expensive thing to put up, but in our case, we have about 180,000 bushels of storage on our farm.  Mainly because we are busy hauling everyone else’s grain in the fall, we don’t have time for our own.  So we need the bins! Plus on years where it’s dry and barge traffic isn’t full to capacity, or the river is high and they can’t load barges, we get to stay home and harvest our own.

  8. I guess fall is officially upon us here in my part of MN.  Worked all day getting the combine ready, and at 6:00 this evening, the dust began to roll! E6321DE4-2813-468F-B907-33AD282479BE.thumb.jpeg.1b9af78b7155bda8d125336f08388374.jpeg

    Probably could have got a truck load out today, but we updated the combines air filter setup, to a pre cleaner style.  That took a little longer than I thought it would have.  But we’ll be ready to go after it tomorrow!!

    Ha Ha, jokes on you, this ones not from the Hawkeye state! Think about where I went Sunday. Anyway, without further adieu.

    Here are the pics. Tractor belongs to Eric(?) Windish from Yates City Il. Maybe @billonthefarm will see this and correct me on the first name if that's wrong. Tractor has 8000ish hours. Still has the pipe strapped to the frame rail!




    Thank you DT!! I’ll check the registry and see, there’s a possibility I have this one? If not it will definitely be added! 

    @billonthefarm that’s a great looking 1066!!

    wish we could of found a use for it,

    Put a tank on it for a water truck, put a bed on it for bales, put a fifth wheel plate on it for hauling more bales on a step deck, drive it to church.  I can try keep giving you reasons to buy it!! 😬😬😬
