Lynn says we have about 150 acres left. Not a great crop this year because of the drought. The corn is a little wet and drying has been a pain and expensive. For those of you unfamiliar, there are bins for drying with fans and a dealybob in there to stir it. After it gets dry, it is moved to another bin by way of tractors, wagons, and augers. Augers are like elevators that take it to the top of the bin and dump it in. I wonder if I've posted any pictures of that on this blog. ??
Don't get too excited, it only says 209 bu/acre because he had to stop and back up to unplug. It figures by the speed you are going, too, so since he wasn't moving at the time and the corn was still running through it looks real good! On this photo, we had only been most of the way around the field as you can see from the photo. What is lit up is where we had been. The arrow was where we were when this photo was taken. It all fills in in colors according to how the yield was in that area.

Rather sad as our last pasture is being turned to crop land. No more cows and calving in the spring. No more romping calves in the morning sun. :(
