So far these are some pictures I've gathered from this years corn harvest. Despite the drought we managed to pull through and come out with 140-180 bushel corn this year. First one is a smaller guys 4420 combine and then a dairy farmer with his crew consisting of a borrowed Pete and dump trailer, JD 4440 and gravity wagon, Ford F700 and his newer-to-him combine. May have some more to post later on. Ignore time stamps, the camera is messed up.

Have you got into tillage yet? Reports around here are that the ground is so hard, it's wearing through shanks at an unbelievable rate.

Good for you, most farmers around here only got 20-25% of what they usually get on corn, and I haven't heard much on beans yet.

140 to 150bu is as much as we've ever gotten, but then we plant all silage varieties, not pure grain varieties. You guys did good!

It is amazing what genetics in agriculture has accomplished. As dry as it was we have had outstanding crops with the elevators full and huge piles on the ground. AND, we are starting to get moisture again. :thumbs:
