We’re just getting our cropping plan started for 2015. We’re not making any major adjustments for next year — no big crop switches. While I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t worried about the market, I can’t see any economic reason to be planting corn on corn. So we’re pretty much going to rotate everything out.
The Cropping Plan
Wayne and I have started putting together a plan for next year on what the mix is going to be. I’m shifting my mix based on the market, as well as, for my operation, I need more acres. So I’m going to add wheat to the mix to try to achieve that. I’m not a huge wheat fan just because I never gave it a good chance. But Wayne’s not going to let me half-ass it, for lack of a better word.
Things around here have been interesting. There’s been a lot of rough weather, though luckily we’ve been very fortunate with rain. It seems like every time a cloud comes up, hail comes out of it. There have been a lot of tornadoes and a lot of high winds.
