We’ve had cool weather. The last three or four days have been almost fall-like. The corn is really starting to turn. My guess would be after Labor Day sometime, people will get started shelling corn.

Few bean fields are starting to turn. Grass has greened up nice. No rain in the forecast. Another shower would be great. Hopefully the heat over the weekend will help dry out the corn.

Beautiful weather this week while most farmers are prepping equipment for harvest. I would guess we are still over a week away from shelling corn.

With no rainfall this past week, many guys were able to finish chopping silage. SDS in soybeans is fairly widespread in the area. Guys have been preparing equipment for corn harvest, which looks to begin in a week or two.

Weather conditions were almost perfect this week as many farmers were in the fields chopping and making hay. We are seeing more cases of sudden death in soybeans in the area.

The weather’s still nice. It’s very comfortable. There’s a lot of people who calve in the fall, and that’s getting started. It’s perfect weather for that. 20 to 30 miles from me, there’s some activity going on in the field, early planted corn. None of it’s completely dry, a little below 20 percent. There’s nothing going on right around here yet.

Cutting corn down our way. Started last Tuesday afternoon (Aug. 29) and Wednesday. Got rained out Thursday morning and took the weekend off to dry out and get ready to roll full steam. Back in the field today.
