Brad, that really hurts, sorry to hear that. Hopefully it won't be as bad as it sounds like. On the positive side, beautiful piece of property you got.

Sorry to see that. I could never be a rancher - farmer. It would drive me nuts over the things I could not control.
Best of luck to you.

We were in the 60's today. Those miserable October showers 100 feet wide. Kansas gets the joys of our Canadian cool air. It is supposed to be 90 hear to finish off the corn and beans. Like the pioneer days before the churches were built. Storms flatten Kansas and frost come to the upper plains.

Iím up to 10 percent hail and green snap so far this year, the bright side might be if the USDA report is right you may make out pretty well with insurance. If nothing else it might help you survive for another year.

I wanted the lake to fill up here it's been so low the fish winter killed, now the lake is so high they evacuated the other side of the lake and the roads are covered with water on 2 sided of me what a mess. Most water I have seen in 40 years of living here the lawn sounds like a sponge when you walk on it like you said enough is enough.

Not sure they will get the crops out and the rest of the hay cut any equipment in a field is at risk of getting buried there. They were working on the wheat harvest and had a tracked tractor with a huge tow rope standing by that was last week.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

Thanks for the thoughts Wild and Zim.

The Humidity has been unbearable this summer. We are used to 15-20%. Saturday we set a record at 1:00pm with 76%. I donít know how the guys down south do it. I can take 95*-115*, but the humidity is a killer

I wish I had a picture of the first year I farmed I had 75 percent greensnap on 147 acres out of 320 but no hail and at that time I didnt carry green snap insurance at that time, I now do.

We started carrying it 5 years ago. First year I put it on the corn it payed out over 200k good Lord was with me on that decision. Got audited for excessive loss. That was a great experience!!

I forgot to say that year combining that corn on half mile rows after 4 rounds I finally unloaded just for something different not because I was full.

Good luck, I hope it doesnt ruin your corn.

Look at it this way, at least you got a wheat crop, we got none, and our milo is burning up from lack of rain.

Farming sucks, im tired of it.

Iíll keep venting. So we drowned in the spring and then No rain. Dry land corn is toasted. Started chopping it last week. Appraisal was 10 bushel to the acre.

Dad is an adjuster for FMH now so we do have a better understanding of how things work, we went to 0 deductible it cost but itís worth it. One thing we do is conflict of interest which is basically an audit every year which is nice because once it is done thats it they canít go back and do the audit again.

Sounds like a good idea. I got audited last year for excessive yields. I didnít mind that one:)

Looks like good silage except for not having many bushels in it. NE wildlife green snap is when the corn plant breaks at the node, if it breaks in between it falls under wind damage which we do carry, insurance will probably break me but I know I would be broke if I didnít carry it.

Thanks bacatrapper. You guys have had a terrible year. Makes me feel bad for complaining. Wonít be long before we can put it behind us, and lower the hammer on some yotes. Iím seeing lots of pups out here. Rabbit and field rat numbers are crazy, so I should have a good haul. My wife is already tiered of hearing about it. She just rolls her eyes every time I say something about it. Which is 10 times a day:) probably should put a lid on it! How do things look out there?

Lots of coyotes here too, but im thinking they might not be worth as much as last year, so gonna hit the skunks and bobcats this year hard too..........dont feel bad about complaining its the farmer way. Yea we have had a badbad year, good thing we dont borrow money to farm, and we have cows or wed be toast.

Good luck! I hope to see you guys at the Colorado sale. I almost have the beaver grease off my fingers from flipping 300 of those wood chippers 4 times. Great time and I learned a lot.
