Boy, last year we really experienced our fair share of weird weather and breakdowns. Remember the hail?
This is a shot of hail damaged corn. The whole top half of the stalks were broken. We were unsure of how it would affect the yields.
The face of an American farmer on a bad day, full of breakdowns and disappointments. Also two trips to John Deere, for me for parts. Landon jokes that this day made his gray hair pop out, if you click to enlarge it you can see it.
Planter tire blow out.
Corn abnormality. You can see it grew in reverse. And has no husk around the cob.
Then there were the floods. Who could forget that.
But we do it all, for this. To get it into the bins for storage and then watch the market for a good time to sell. Farmers are the only ones who BUY at retail and SELL at wholesale. We have had the highest of high prices and the lowest of the lows. I challenge you, the next time you buy something.... buy American.
