@  endrow : (01 October 2016 - 01:19 PM) I am hoping that this rain will help to get the corn and beans closer to combining
@  endrow : (01 October 2016 - 11:24 AM) Not Idaho sheesh
@  endrow : (01 October 2016 - 10:37 AM) Our local news ran a story with footage Idaho Fields flooded by rain in Iowa and Indiana. Who knows if there's any truth to it or not
@  haybaler101 : (01 October 2016 - 09:37 AM) Got Stack's fog this morning. Had rain every day now for 4 days. Even corn shelling has stopped now.
@  Shetland She... : (01 October 2016 - 07:01 AM) 47º and overcast here in srn NH. Showers likely today with a high in mid 50s.
@  endrow : (01 October 2016 - 06:18 AM) Did not rain much overnight next three days are expected to be a bit cloudy and dreary with light showers
@  stack em up : (30 September 2016 - 08:55 AM) Fog is thick as pea soup this morning. Guess I should have switched over to corn last night. Hope to bale the last of 4th cutting this afternoon. My 16 year old nephew is coming after school to run combine. He is ecstatic! Called me twice before school to make sure we had everything ready to go. He tried to get his football friends to come and bale squares as a weightlifting exercise. Of his teammates, not one took him up on it. He said fine, more cash for me.
@  Shetland She... : (30 September 2016 - 07:15 AM) 46º and overcast here in srn NH. Today may remain cloudy with a high in upper 50s and a chance sprinkle late.
@  endrow : (30 September 2016 - 05:23 AM) So barley and rye it came up immediately. Over the course of the year several people indicated the aerial seed cereal Rye another cocktail mixes of cover crop seed mid to late August in soybeans they're going to combine. And there's been an indication it's rained much of the month of September I'd like to see a picture of those soybeans now you'd have to be running 8 to 10 inches a riye through the combine. The BTO here, if they have volunteer barley come back 4 inches they Buzz through with the big sprayers and kill it off because they say you have to be more aggressive with the real to get that damp lush barley vegitation across the cutter bar, and it thrashes too many beans out at the head
@  mlappin : (29 September 2016 - 10:22 PM) definitely cheaper to dry it yourself, the elevator can dry it cheaper actually, but they charge like they can, then of course you get dinged for shrink as well at the elevator.
@  stack em up : (29 September 2016 - 09:48 PM) Beans got tough, not switching to corn tonight, just gonna hit beans hard when dew comes off in the morning
@  stack em up : (29 September 2016 - 09:47 PM) Cost of drying at the elevator yet, but I know it's cheaper than losing corn to stalk rot. We have about every disease you can think of in corn this year. NCLB, Goss Wilt, Stalk Rot, corn aphids, you name it, we got it.
@  stack em up : (29 September 2016 - 09:45 PM) Haven't figured up cost
@  PaMike : (29 September 2016 - 08:49 PM) That adds up...
@  endrow : (29 September 2016 - 08:03 PM) Where I hall into they deduct 3.5% for each percent you are over15.5%
@  FarmerCline : (29 September 2016 - 07:48 PM) Back at the coast going fishing in the Gulf Stream again tomorrow......hopefully will catch a little more than I did last week.
@  stack em up : (29 September 2016 - 07:17 PM) We don't have a large enough setup for the acres we run. We bought a new dryer this spring, never got it installed....
@  PaMike : (29 September 2016 - 06:45 PM) Neighbor used to have some sort of wood fired dryer setup... He burned all sorts of stuff in it...
@  PaMike : (29 September 2016 - 06:45 PM) Is it cheaper to dry it yourself? I would have thought elevator would have a larger more efficent set up for drying, but I guess they are in it to make money...
@  broadriverhay : (29 September 2016 - 06:00 PM) Finally got some clear weather and cut the last coastal for the year.
