    Corn harvest 2019

    Finally got our lease fields combined today. Latest I can remember as its been so wet they havenít been able to get in the fields. Finally cold and frozen enough last Wednesday they could start again. Fields firmed up good and theses are the last fields they have to do and their done for the season.
    Shot three short videos and back to work. You can also see by second video that the I got two Gator loads of wood cut today. Other than a chilly North wind was a nice day.

    That's good they got it done. I just talked to one of our farm accounts this morning, he finished up yesterday afternoon finall, my wife's cousin's farm are still going at it. I think they are down to their last 200 acres but with this storm coming through this weekend I believe whatever they get today may just be the last of it. I talked to him a few weeks ago and the yields are still quite high believe it or not, so even if he left 150+ acres standing it's not a real loss.

    Harvesting corn in January in Michigan - has to be some kind of record?

    jdmich, I tried to get a pic of my wife's cousin combining a field along the interstate. Man oh man, the damn flash went off in side the truck, boy that was bright.

    Anyway, he's using the smaller International combine that they had to buy when they picked up these fields 3 years ago because the only access is a small bridge that the JD combine is too big to cross, so they use that one with a 6 row head for those fields.

    I had the same thing happen the other night. I was in my Gator and Tried to get a pic right at dark of a 10 point buck I’ve been seeing in our back field and the flash went off. Had to sit there for 10 minutes, I couldn’t see to drive back down the trail .

    I was doing 70+ on the interstate with s light dusting of snow on the road.

    But I like to live dangerously.

    Soybeans are late as well

    We had people with corn still in the field in November and I think there are still some soybeans standing. It's just been too wet for people to get in the fields to finish up. Normally our harvest pattern is backwards from the midwest- we cut corn first in early September through October and beans in October and November. This year it was cut what you could on whatever land would hold up the combine and come back for the "leftovers" if the land dried up. I know of one farmer who is super careful about his land and not only did a combine get stuck but it was on tracks.

    I'm not sure how much bigger combines can get for our area. It's really difficult to move them on the roads now due to the width and impatient drivers who can't stand to be behind farm equipment for 5 minutes. It used to be the header width was the limitation but now it's the width of the basic machine.

    I saw the farmers across the street from me heading out with their combine last Thursday. I think they were towing the head to harvest the beans and not the corn head. Don't know if that finishes it up for them or not.

    I can't remember still seeing crops in the field this late, although we do have one area farmer that "never seems to get around to it" until Spring. Another farmer buddy of mine told me "Well, he must be the smart one! He claims he's saving on storage fees at the grain elevator. Maybe I should do that and just pull the planter behind the combine. Think of the time I'd save each year!"

    I knew one of the never get around to it farmers as well. He's out of business. I don't say that if someone is late, they are a bad farmer but if they chronically miss time planting, harvesting, fertilization etc. they had better have another source of income to support their farming habit. Stuff does happen and even very good farmers have years when things go wrong but not every year.
