What a shame...

Why would anyone mow down this beautiful corn and right along the highway...?
On Friday we made room for the new water line heading into Ashland.

GSI's first million bushel grain bin in Illinois - and it's located in Ashland. Home of RPA Farmers Coop (
That's the equivalent of 5,000 acres of 200 bpa corn all in one bin...

Loading one of the trucks for another run to the elevator along the Illinois River.

This week was spent hauling corn to the Illinois River at Havana & Beardstown. Between rain showers we sprayed more of the soybeans to get rid of the weeds. We are also adding an insecticide around the borders as the Japanese beetles are chewing on the outside 40' of beans; not to mention the local rose bushes. Most of the equipment is washed up and put away with a few exceptions. A few corn fields are starting to tassel as of this weekend. This upcoming week we will continue spraying soybeans, hauling corn, and begin the 4th of July mowing of ditches and roadbanks. The hot and humid weather along with weekly rainfall continue to bring the crops along at a tremendous pace.
Happy Father's Day!
