Christy: Season in summary

Excellent corn crops all over this fall.

Worthington, Minnesota—We couldn’t be happier for a very blessed harvest season. Throughout wheat harvest and fall harvest we found great crops to harvest and saw yields that surpassed records in some areas. The weather, while wet most of the year, was overall cooperative. Ending harvest before Thanksgiving and snow that sticks to the ground to stay for the winter is always a plus. It’s no fun fighting snow to pick corn.

Soybeans faired well overall averaging anywhere from 45 to 85 bushels per acre.

Our crew this year was really awesome. Most guys stuck it out the whole year, and some that came a little later during harvest proved to be great help to complete the year.

When the weather failed, I hosted quite a few meals in our home for the crew in our area.

This fall wasn’t without challenges. We did struggle a bit with a few combine issues, and it seemed like a lot more transmission trouble than normal for our trucks. Nothing major, but bits that slowed us down here and there. Hopefully this winter we’ll be able to get all the trucks running perfect for the next season.

In Roscoe, the snow stuck around a little too long, but thankfully disappeared so we could finish up.

I am happy to be finished for the year, and ready to slip into regular life again for a little while. Christmas is right around the corner, so we’re wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thanks for keeping up with us, and we are looking forward to sharing again next year.
