Finished corn harvest for another year. Now the boring tillage process begins. Surprisingly only missed 1 Gopher home game during the October harvest.


About 3/4 of normal around here.

Soybeans ended a bit below average. Corn ended up my best crop ever with over 200 bu/acre on my home place. I was shocked by that. The other farm that is 10 miles north and is on sandy ground, ended up average. After a very questionable weather wise summer, I am grateful for what I got and know many further were not as fortunate.

I have friends in northeaster South Dakota (Webster area), and they had a pretty mediocre year for corn. Below average yields overall and in some areas little yield at all.
