The harvest equipment is ready to begin picking corn next week!
Wilbur is putting the finishing touches on the grain center and is nearly ready to dry corn.
The soybeans are starting to ripen now.
Here’s what’s going on at Gingerich Farms…
I found this ear of corn last week when scouting a population plot. The size of the ear lifted my spirits after looking at drought stricken corn for most of the day. This picture is a little play on words from early days of Dekalb corn when the slogan was “The Mortgage Lifter”.
I attended the Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis this weekend. It was great to see agriculture and American ethanol being promoted at the track and on the cars. These cars make a lot of noise and go very fast powered by corn ethanol! Thank you to Carl for the tickets!
The cooler temperatures this past weekend were a much needed relief from the seemingly endless hot temperatures.
The corn is dying fast, harvest appears to be 2 to 3 weeks away.
The harvest equipment is nearly ready to roll!
