Wet, Wet, Wet! Mother Nature has thrown us a curve ball again. The last half of October has not been kind to combines.
As of early November, frost has hit and I’m hoping it will kill the volunteer soybean cover crop. Hoping for some good weather soon.
Our annual general meeting will be virtual via Zoom on December 2nd, which is the first Thursday of December as usual at 9:30 a.m.
