Week ending December 15th...

Not much exciting going on right now.  The clean up of fall tillage and fertilizer equipment continues and year end tax planning and execution are top on the list.  We hauled corn out of our bins to fill our December contracts because we feared the Illinois River would close due to low water levels on the Mississippi River, thus stranding full barges on the Illinois River; but that hasn't happened yet. 

The weather has allowed us to keep working outside which is abnormal for December.  Due to changing guidance system brands, we have been out in the fields with the Ranger running all new farm boundaries and AB lines in preparation for spring.  These boundaries will allow us to do many different things with our new guidance system and the more we get completed now, the less we will have to do in the spring. 

A nice rain came through the area last night which brought much needed moisture.  While our area has been blessed with a few rains that others have not received, our tiles are still not running and that is concerning going into winter. 

Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone in Newtown, Connecticut.

The new planter has arrived...
