We finished harvest, along with about 95 percent of the farmers in Shelby County. Stalk ground is all tilled, and about 25 percent of our bean stubble ground has been worked. The bean ground hasn’t cooperated too well. We have had trouble with rolling baskets filling with mud, so we haven’t gotten as much of that done as we’d like. Some anhydrous is being applied since soil temps have fallen. Have a safe week, and wear your goggles and gloves! I also heard about a farmer being run over by a chisel plow he was working on in Minnesota. Shut it off, block it up, and put it in Park. Please be safe out there!

We have finished harvest! Some groundwork going on around here, and most have finished beans. Have a safe week! Blessed to have had another bountiful harvest with my dad, Duane, my son, Elliott, and neighbor, Kevin!
