The weather has once again defeated us from finishing our corn. As of now we only have 145 acres left and our season will be finished. Once we got done with the last of the beans, we put two of our machines on our own corn. We got the Neumiller brothers' corn done but fell short of finishing Roger’s.



Early last week we started on Roger’s corn and seen the forecast was once again not going to be in our favor. The guys were up around 7 a.m. and started moving trucks to the new field and got everything



It’s been a great week of finishing customers and beginning the process of bringing all our equipment back home. Pretty soon Gary’s yard will be busy and full; cleaning up equipment and getting everything stored for winter.

The Roscoe, South Dakota, crew is still chipping away at Gary’s corn. All customers were wrapped up a couple of days ago. With a little snow delay, we’re thinking the final stalk will be picked on either Monday or Tuesday, and we can call it a year. We’ll be looking forward to seeing our crew from South Dakota when they return.

Wet weather has delayed the corn harvest for Craig Huxtable, but past experience has taught him to be prepared for any fall harvest scenario.

Huxtable is also a Hoegemeyer seed salesman and cow-calf operator near Wood River, Nebraska. He plants 1,350 acres of “corn on corn” practice and most of his crop is on irrigated cropland.

“On the dryland we had good yields,” Huxtable said, adding that was on high quality river bottom ground near the Platte River. “On our irrigated fields with the Hoegemeyer seed the yields are better than expected.”

Well, we almost had our customers done around home. Paul got a call for help on one last quarter by Round Lake, Minnesota. We started that quarter today, and will get it done hopefully tomorrow. It’s hard to turn down extra work. We are, as before, still pretty short on help, but if it means putting our own crops off for a bit longer, it’s worth the wait.



Before moving back over to Round Lake, we squeezed in two of our own fields of corn. They did well. We hauled some over to our bins at our home, and some

The fall harvest is in the bins for a southwest Nebraska producer who readily says when she headed into spring planting she knew it was going to be one with ups and downs.

Tracy Zink is from Indianola near McCook and operates a diversified grain operation. “All in all harvest went smooth. Once it is done you can go back and say that was not so bad.”

Glitches with Mother Nature were some of challenges, she said. Some growers experienced big downpours while her operation mostly had small rains. She tried to watch the forecast and

It has been a while since my last post and after a very long rain delay, we have been pretty busy around here.  After spending seventy-seven days in Westhope they finally made the journey home. Once they got home, they had a couple days to recoup before it got hectic.



It rained on and off for over two weeks around home so that put a little damper on our combining. Once it finally cleared up, we have been going pretty steady for a while. The ladies and I brought campers into the shop and started cleaning them up and
