Anyone in your area started shelling any corn yet? If not how far off are you? Silage has been over for a week now here in Mid-Mo. Talked to a couple customers today there maybe looking to start shelling by the end of the week. Lots of corn was planted in the April 2-3 here

We started yesterday, WCIN. Only shelled about 20 acres or so, in 2 different fields, that lay adjacent to each other. Both fields are continous corn, with one being grid tiled, and the other one not. All I'll say is, what a difference tile makes, as I am seeing close to 100bpa difference on the yiled monitor. Overall average is about 200bpa (dry corn) and runing 19-20% moisture. We've been trying to get the rest of our farm tiled, but there is only so much money to be spent in a year.

With these reports I think we will see a run up in the market. I don't think the corn is out there like the reports say. I'm going to bag my crop and sit on what i haven't already contracted. What is everyone else thinking???

There's a few guys runnin around here. One BTO just to the south, has been running for a week and a half or so. Was told that around Savoy, IL that guys are running full bore, corn testing 21-22% and elevators are offering 1/2 rate drying, and the corn is piss poor around 100bpa.

Some corn shellers are starting to rollin Southern IN. I expect yields to be fair to poor throughout most of the southern part of this state. We dealt with too much rain early (only 2-3 good planting days in may.) then no rain from July 1st through August 10th. beans are taking it pretty hard too. I won't start shelling corn til the end of September.

Thats good to hear. Yields should be fair to poor sorta depends where you are. The hills will have one of the best corn crops in a long time, as for the River Bottoms it just looks pretty poor as it just took on way to much water all year. Beans are looking really good thow, few reports of sds popping up.
