JC got to talking about Silage and then Dad decided that we should chop some out of one field that is almost to dry to make silage out of. Here is some pics of us getting started. IF this drives up the corn mkt. I expect a percentage! LOL
THis is Kossuth county Iowa.

jrsaijdranch, that is a spectacle.
did you see image jec22 posted. THAT is profound. i assume, during a normal year at this time, all the areas planted with corn/beans are more on the green side of spectrum.
from that image, it appears about 50% of planted area is green. i'm leapin here, but 50% 96 mil ac = 48 mil harvest??????????

JR when was that corn planted? That is as bad as the worst around here, mostly to my west. What is surprising is that you are located in an area not listed as dry on the drought map.

JR thanks for sharing the pictures. Wow I thought Iowa would be the garden spot compared to us. I know Iowa got more rain than us. The corn on your sandy spots is what most corn looks like here.
