i went out and about today to see corn harvest. Well i came across my cousens farm. he owns a 9750. I think it looks mean with the rice and canes on it. I also came across a 9760 bullet rotor that was waiting for the trucks to get back so it could unload.

Also curious how the yields are...we all know the south isnt an ideal place to raise corn since it gets way too hot for corn to really put out all that it can. Which is why the cornbelt is the king of corn, but it'll be interesting to see if a great year for the south can come out and try to give us cornbelt fellas a run for our money in the future.

What was the moisture on that corn? Pictures look great! Also, what type of camera is that?

Actually there is alot of corn raised around here. Right now we are in a heat wave but most of the time its pretty cool down here. Corn isnt doing to bad. It could be better but the drought and heat wave have made it difficult. Yeilds right now are any where between 160 to 180.

We took our first load of dryland corn August 15th here in Pratt... they've already cut over 50,000 bushels of dryland so far at the elevator I work for, that doesn't include the other 5 or 6 branches (maybe more I forget). Gonna be a good harvest too I hope.
