WHEAT HARVEST ENDS
We competed our 2021 wheat harvest yesterday. It was a harvest due to the amount of rainfall we had in August - we recorded 154 mm and what really didn't help was the cold northerly winds bringing cloud in off the north sea. Not only did this make it difficult for the corn to dry, but drying the corn required more heat than usual because the ambient temperature was so low. Almost all of our corn came in at over 17.5% moisture and for safe storage has to be dried down to 14.5% - that meant some long nights for the drier. While a harvest, which would normally be completed in twelve days took over a month, yields were very good so we have to be thankful for that.
