Corn is still wet


We were surprised earlier when the corn tested 68%
So I went to Royalmar with corn from a different field


don't know why they want you to bring 6-8 stalks
when they only use 3


saw some familiar faces


This was cool, filled in planting date and variety 


estimated harvest day and 
how feed values change when you chop higher
that only is for non brown midrib corn 
our corn you use the whole plant

this time 72% so quite wet yet
