Farmers and ranchers in southwest Minnesota made progress chopping silage before the latest wet weather hit. Beaver Creek, Minnesota farmer Pete Bakken says this year’s silage harvest is behind by three to four weeks. “North of us, they haven’t even started because ground conditions are so wet. To the south, some farmers are already done.” Bakken is chopping late-planted corn that experienced green snap during a summer storm. That means yields are all over the board. “Yields have been anywhere from 45 to 120 bushels. That’s with 30 to 60 percent green snap.” This Harvest Hotline update is made possible by AgCountry Farm Credit Services, the North Dakota Mill and U.S. Custom Harvesters, Incorporated.
