Harvest is in full swing!

by donna.geswein@gmail.com on October 8, 2011


The rain finally stopped and the combines are going full force!  The bean harvest is about 75% complete, and with no rain forecasted in the near future we’ll probably get it completed early next week.  We’ve been pleased with most of the bean yields so far.

Our second combine has been focusing on corn harvest and getting out a few fields that had wind/hail damage.  It was slow going to start with but hopefully we are past the hard stuff and it will start moving along quickly now.  Corn yields so far are as expected.  We have some really good yields and some not so good yields depending on when planted and how much rain it got.  Hopefully over all we’ll end up with a decent average.

The other project going on during harvest is adding an additional grain bin.  The bin is up but there’s a few finishing touches to be done before we can start loading it.
