The Harvest Begins

By Staff | Sep 20, 2016

HARVEST?UNDERWAY - Even though the official start of Fall is still a few days off, harvesting has begun in the area with the cutting of silage for area beef producers. The Nelson brothers opened up cornfields this past Wednesday and started cutting silage in earnest until Thursday’s rains brought a halt to the process. Other area farmers started cutting silage in the last week of August and reported that corn at that time looked very hardy. Area soybean fields are turning rapidly and the harvest should begin before the end of the month. -- Dan Voigt photo
