I hope everyone enjoyed reading my From the Fields report this year. We’re trying to finish all our fieldwork before the rain. We finished hauling manure Saturday. Cutting stalks and chiseling a few fields is all we have left. It will be close. Then we can put 2019 in the books and look forward to 2020.
This has definitely been a year for the record books. Starting wet in the spring, then turning dry in the summer. Then wet again in the fall. LP shortages in our area didn’t help with drying corn down. Hopefully, the trade war with China can be resolved and we can get that market back. It would also be nice to get the ethanol situation resolved and reopen some ethanol plants and get corn demand back up.
Hope everyone had a great 2019. Happy Thanksgiving and have a merry Christmas.
