Latest commercial by my brother Jonathan…….. (that’s him driving the car.)
Shelled my first corn today. This field would normally make 10-11 times as much as it did. Worse yet was that the yield estimate was about 30 bu/ac……..why I didn’t destroy it.
Anyway I still have 40 acres to harvest that might make over 50…………. then we get the bush hog out and start mowing down the rest of it.
If I can get everything together I will try to start shelling corn tomorrow. I guess I am the last one to start in the area. Since the 16th of August it has been super busy with all kinds of stuff and I have not really had time to commit to getting ready.
Crop insurance looked at over half my corn crop and estimated it a below 10 bu/ac so I will end up destroying those acres and will concentrate on harvesting my two best farms. I suspect that the one will make sub 40 bushel corn and the other might make near 100 but the aflatoxin is going to be a problem on where I can sell it I think.
Maybe once I get back in the field I will start posting more, I just have lost interest in all things as of late…….need to get back on the page.
