Saturday, June 1st...

More rain this week with large amounts.  We will be taking preventative planting on the majority of our remaining corn acres.  This is the first time ever we have used preventative planting on corn; unheard of in Central Illinois.  We have over half our soybeans to plant, but there is still time to get those planted with good yield potential.  Our corn fields that have emerged have huge ponds of water sitting on them which will kill the young corn plants underneath the water's surface.  Even our best stands of corn took heavy amounts of rain last night.  Mother Nature is making a wicked average from last year...

  1. Does YOUR family have what it takes to compete in a hilarious, outrageous new reality game show?

    A major cable network, the award-winning production company that brought you Big Brother, Fly on the Wall Entertainment, and MysticArt Pictures are now casting nationwide!

    Is your family larger than life, ultra competitive, unpredictable, really entertaining, and far from harmonious at family holidays?

    Do fights break out? Who causes them?

    Now seeking families of at least 5 people, including wild siblings, eccentric uncles, doting grandmothers, competitive cousins, and the in-laws, anyone in your extended family 18 or older, who is ready to go head to head for the family's chance to win up to $25,000!
