Thread: SW ND Final Corn Harvest and Winter Report

  1. #1

    Default SW ND Final Corn Harvest and Winter Report

    Yes, these pictures are from yesterday and not last fall. Final 70 acres of corn will come down today on the 22nd of March. Crazy end to a crazy year.

    Lots of thermal cover and food available for the pheasants throughout the winter. We had much better conditions this winter as well when it comes to temps and snow being spaced out over time.

    Looking for a great year, the hatch will of course be the big factor.

    I had a couple bins go bad this year. One wasn’t terrible but the other was an absolute nightmare. 10 day fight getting it out and blended with good corn. Had to cut a hole in the bin, the whole nine yards. Farm on

    Wow, just in time to start planting again! How is the population looking in your part of the state? Are we rebounding from the drought a couple of years ago?

    I caught one bin just in time. Had to get the stir augers running and turn the fan on. This ethanol thing gets worse we may have a hard time finding a market for this corn.

    I got about 10k bu. left unsold. Hate to take a beating on it but it’s got to come out of the bins in the next week or two. 17% moisture . And for some reason the bank expects me to pay them. Meantime it rains every week here. Looks to be a repeat of last years planting season...late. Dooms day scenario, imagine we can’t get crops planted on top of China virus panic.
