19 Nov Christy: Almost to the end
Worthington, Minnesota—Crews have completed all jobs by home, and by Elkton, South Dakota. We have seen a banner crop this year in both areas. Corn averaged anywhere from 180 to 295 bushels per acre. The one field that produced 295 bushels per acre on dryland corn was by far an average I’m not sure we will see again. It’s been a very impressive harvest.
Our crew by Roscoe, South Dakota, is still working on corn acres. They’ve seen about 190 to 200 bushel per acre corn, also an excellent crop for that area. That crew is hoping to finish up by the end of this week.
Since harvest is wrapping up, our crew members around home are busy getting all the machinery back home, and beginning the process of cleaning equipment up and ready for storage. We also have one person working on field work for Paul’s fields.
We ended up storing some corn and soybeans at our home. Bins were filled this last week and will be hauled back out sometime this winter.
Today is a busy day as we are setting up to host Case IH from Titan Machinery in Worthington at our shop. They are catering in a final harvest meal. There will be pictures to come next time on how it turns out. I’m excited to see everyone and celebrate a great harvest season.
