Planted in 30 in rows @ 120,000 running about 70 in this area of the field.

60% of the time, it works every time.

Not bad for a planted pop of 26100.

Looking good hobby, what was the moisture and test weight like on your corn?

Re: let's see some field shots!

We finally got harvest done here on our farm. The first picture was of me running soybeans. Those beans only made 35 bu an acre. Lack of August rains made soybean yields a little disappointing. The rest of the pictures are of corn harvest. Most of the corn made between 170 and 180 bu an acre, which are record yields on my farm. The weather was great, and I was even able to get my wife and Grandfather in the combine to run a couple passes. Overall, it was a good and bountiful harvest.DSC04565.JPGDSC04571.JPGDSC04596.JPGDSC04606.JPGDSC04619.JPGDSC04644.JPG

Ken, my Grandfather is the guy on the left giving the peace sign. He is 79 years old and still farming some. BTW, is it normal to have a combine turn the black color like ours did this year? When we were done harvesting corn our combine looked like it had been working near a coal mine.

Re: let's see some field shots!

Great pictures BSF, and congrats on your crops and being completed. It brings great joy to my heart to see the "Old Timers", (and I use that phrase very loosely), still hard at it. My granddad ran his own combine until he was 84 years of age, we were all standing around one night after we finished wheat harvest enjoying a cold one and he said that particular year was his 74th harvest. He also said after his 75th harvest, he was going to turn the keys over to me to be the primary operator of his combine and that he would just drive around after that and help us just with the moving from field to field so to speak. That conversation was held in June, and we buried him the following April. I guess what I'm trying to say is, enjoy these moments and memories while they are still available. I lost my granddad and my dad about 5 years apart and quickly went from having a harvest crew and operation to becoming a one man chain gang.

For the record, I would trade it all in to make one or two last victory rounds with each of them.
