Well the 2014 Harvest is slowly getting under way. This week mother
nature decided to still keep bringing some rain which has slowed us down a
little but the forecast looks good. What yields we have seen appear to be
pretty good. The earlier maturing hybrids 105-107 day look to be a little lower
than the 110-113 stuff so far. Moisture was in the upper teens low 20s for the
earlier season corn and mid 20s on the fuller season. However we have only
picked a little bit and its hard to make any conclusions yet. That being
said it does look like the best corn crop we have ever seen so far and makes it
exciting for the next two months ( if we could only get the price up).
Funny how things work in farming the last few years. In 2012 we raised the worst
corn crop of our life and had some of the best incomes ever and now the table
has turned and we are having wonderful yields and lower prices and lower
incomes. Hopefully, we can sort it all out after harvest and have a strong
start into 2015.
