Corn

Jerry's got some hardy corn
Tuesday afternoon when I was out to the farm I took this picture. I admit it looks a little strange. Why would there be corn growing in a lawn? Early in the spring when I am getting the planter ready I always like to check out the monitor. You do not want to wait until you start planting corn b…
Time To Move Corn
The past couple of weekends I took advantage of the nice weather to haul corn. I had some hedges in December I rolled to March and recently fixed the basis. I have a neighbor just down the road three-quarters of a mile who needs to buy corn for their hog operation...
Get your corn inside
Wednesday afternoon I was hauling beans to the elevator and they had a crew there picking up their corn pile. There was a lot of corn piled outside this fall in Minnesota because we had a very good crop. It is not unusual to see a pile of corn by an elevator for a short time in the fall...
Jerry's got good corn

Seed Corn Should Be Planted
I finished working over my corn ground yesterday evening, and today, with a little luck, I will get the last 80 acres of corn planted. That is barring any breakdowns. I did plant some corn on April 18 about 36 hours before the really cold weather...
Market Report: Corn and Beans Start the Week Lower

Export Inspections were reported at 855,766 MT, which was down from last week at 1.039 MMT. This afternoon the USDA reported planting progress for corn at 2 pe…
Market Report: Corn Higher, Soybeans Mixed
Corn had another good day as it continues to recover some of the losses from Tuesday. Export sales for corn were disappointing at only 431,700 MT. However, it was right at the weekly sales we need to meet the USDA export projections for the year...
