We finally got started harvesting corn on Friday (9/30/11) after 10 days of cold, wind, and rain. The weekend turned out to be wonderful for combining. The moisture content of the corn really dropped between Friday and today. Dad and Joe harvested a little Thursday evening and the moisture was running about 30 - 31%. By Saturday, the same corn hybred was 27 - 28% and today that hybred ran about 25%. It's amazing what sunshine and heat can do for the crop and the people harvesting!
Here are a few scenes from this beautiful weekend.
I will be explaining what is going on at a later time but right now some of us are headed to the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin!
