Janel: Borderline moisture

Central Nebraska—It’s now Nov. 6 and everyone is looking forward to the end of harvest. However, the end is not near quite yet. We have been staying busy harvesting high yielding corn but the moisture is borderline now. It needs to be under 17% but sometimes the loads are higher. That has certainly slowed us up this past week.

Luckily, our forecast is clear with highs in the 50s and 60s. I hope to have a good week of picking corn. If the corn finally dries down I know the elevator lines will be even longer. That slows us up. It’ll all get done in time. This business certainly teaches patience too.

We have three combines here picking corn, two combines in south central Nebraska harvesting corn and some milo, and two combines in western Kansas cutting milo. Best of luck to everyone harvesting the grain that feeds the world.
