Thatll be 120 days from when it was planted. Gotta get a scoop board made for the back end, and get the picker lubed up and ready. I got a late 50s IHC picker. Its a good one, a picker husker

Where you at in Kansas Jerry? My dad still lives on the home place in Doniphan Co. He says this yerars corn is the best he s ever seen. Hes got around 60 acres of corn there this year.

Forgot to mention, Dad said he was wondering how those guys who shelled early was gonna wind up after paying the gas bill to have it dryed, high as gas is now. I rather think, seeing as gas aint going to come down, that this may be the peak point of shelling corn and folks may start going back to picking and cribbing it again, and then shelling it when its dry, and or when theyre ready to sell it. More bulk, but a whole lot cheaper. Gas, cribs versus grain bins, pickers versus combine shellers

The guy that farms just south of the house started picking a quarter section of corn yesterday. I thought it was about two weeks early but that goes to show you what I know. It looks like it will be a good year......if the prices hold.
