BACK in the fields...

We were fortunate enough to miss the heavy rains the past couple weeks which allowed us to get back in the fields on Friday. Earlier in the week we completed more jobs around the shop and continued to haul corn to the river terminals. Field activity resumed with spraying herbicides on previously planted corn fields. Saturday we began planting again around the Ashland area. Our time in the field was short-lived as rains set in on Sunday afternoon around 4 pm and put us out until the warmer temperatures and wind arrive. We have now eclipsed the half-way mark of our 2011 planting progress.
