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.

Making up for lost ground

Most of our replant has just now completed on pollination, and it’s just starting to fill. Our crop has really made up for a lot of lost ground, I think because we’ve had really great heat and moisture, which is helping convert nutrients to corn, no doubt.

We’ve still got a long way to go, but hopefully Jack will stay away ‘til the first of December. Or at least hopefully we get a late frost.
