Just Getting Going
My relation near Janesville, WI said he was somewhat disappointed with his corn as it's averaging in the mid 170's which is right around his crop insurance guarantee. Beans, again a bit disappointed with mid 40's.
My custom combining friend is in Kansas doing corn and beans. He's saying that under the pivots beans are between 50 and 90 bu/AC - awesome.

Re: Just Getting Going
Thanks for the report Jen. Being a seed dealer, I have been out talking with many producers this fall. What I am noticing on most farms is the better than expected corn yields, and disappointing bean yields. On average Im hearing a lot of mid 30 to 40 bushel bean yields. I averaged 40 bushel beans on my own farm. Most of my corn averaged somewhere in the 170's. A couple deer and raccoon infested fields of mine brought my average down to 155.... That's pretty good yield considering my average corn yield last year was 52 bu. The late hot and dry spell wasn't good for soybean yield this year, but it made for good quality corn around here. I don't know if this is similar to what other producers are seeing across the country, but that's how things are shaping up in the northern Indiana, southern Michigan region.
BTW, most producers are storing corn and selling their beans right off the combine. My thoughts are wheat and soybeans will be the market leaders in the coming months.
