@  mlappin : (31 October 2014 - 11:56 PM) hmm...bean stubble.
@  mlappin : (31 October 2014 - 11:52 PM) Came home the back way from the fish fry, seen some already fall chiseled there been stable, had dirt blowing across the road already.
@  Grateful11 : (31 October 2014 - 11:34 PM) I would have thought they would be bringing more than that. My son sold 6 calves about 2 weeks ago and one 5 month old Holstein Hereford cross bull brought $2.20lbs., $1100. One Black Baldy brought $2.30/lbs.
@  Bgriffin856 : (31 October 2014 - 10:25 PM) Grateful11, The ten brown swiss went for an average of 1700 and the 30 freestall cows Holstein, jerseys and crosses averaged about 1600. Cheap compared to 2000-2500 for bred heifers at the heifer sale two weeks before. It was just their regular sale with the dairy cows. wasn't advertised. Buy of the day was the Jersey we bought 50 lbs a day and bred 5 months for 745 someone was sleeping or something on that one
@  Bgriffin856 : (31 October 2014 - 10:20 PM) PaMike, down a bit on cow numbers and heifers aren't coming in quick enough. Besides it can be wrote off
@  Bgriffin856 : (31 October 2014 - 10:19 PM) and the ears were like rubber so it was useless. Dry cows grazed alot of it the rest was fertilizer
@  Bgriffin856 : (31 October 2014 - 10:17 PM) 2006 we had 18 inches of snow and "Thunder" snow it was October 19th I think. We didnt have any corn chopped cause it was a wet cold year and took forever to dry down. The cold with the snow froze it and it was still too wet when we started chopping on election day.... chopped till thanksgiving. Had two tractors hooked together on the chopper...never unhooked the chain. Left alot standing
@  urednecku : (31 October 2014 - 09:38 PM) Almost in a jamb here, got ~10 acres dried sooner than I planned on, & the baler I was planning on using will need more parts & work than I wanna put in it to. On top of that, the couple used balers I was watching have already sold.
@  haybaler101 : (31 October 2014 - 09:06 PM) I think that '91 blizzard might be the same year we had 6" of snow on Halloween.
@  Grateful11 : (31 October 2014 - 09:00 PM) We've got thunder. Been a long time since we've heard any.
@  stack em up : (31 October 2014 - 08:43 PM) 34"(?) of snow over 3 days.
@  swmnhay : (31 October 2014 - 08:27 PM) We had a Halloween blizzard in 91.
@  haybaler101 : (31 October 2014 - 08:11 PM) Ok, this year has been a wild ride, but shelling corn on Halloween with snow showers? Unreal!
@  stack em up : (31 October 2014 - 03:06 PM) The yields in our little piece of paradise are phenomenal, probably the best ever "here". Dont have to go far to not have faired as well.
@  endrow : (31 October 2014 - 02:51 PM) that's what I think all around yields are good real good.. but not nearly as big of corn crop as what these guys were thinkin
@  mlappin : (31 October 2014 - 12:39 PM) Kinda in the same boat Cy, got most of my beans sold at a good price, but didn't sell any corn as for awhile this spring wasn't sure it was going to ever dry out enough to plant any.
@  swmnhay : (31 October 2014 - 09:18 AM) Should of bought the market mid harvest but big yields out east scared me off and all the smart guys saying $2 corn
@  haybaler101 : (31 October 2014 - 06:54 AM) And for as good as the corn is it is moving thru the pipeline very quickly.
@  haybaler101 : (31 October 2014 - 06:52 AM) beans were a disappointment here. A lot more 50 bpa than 70 like the pre harvest scouts said.
@  haybaler101 : (31 October 2014 - 06:49 AM) Markets are starting to back you up on that, Cy.
