Comeback Corn—Harvest is Beginning on Replant Crops

Today’s the day—we’re getting the combine ready to start cutting corn and beans. We just got our chopping done on about 50 acres of corn silage for our cattle, and we're ready to start harvesting the rest.

In my neighborhood, I'm probably a little bit behind some of these guys, but beans don't take very long to cut once you start going (if you don't have any trouble). You're taking such a wide swath, and there's just not near as much product compared to corn. There’s about a third less grain to haul to the bins, so our soybeans will be short, hopefully.

Devastating June Storms Cause Replanting in Iowa

The June 3rd storm was rather devastating for the crop. We got flat, golf-ball-sized hail, and it ended up being about 3 inches deep by the time it was done hailing. And then it proceeded to rain and storm. It pretty much wiped the whole crop out, so we ended up replanting. Luckily, not all of our fields got hit so hard, but we did have to replant on our two other farms as well.
