Nebraska-based custom forage harvester Glen Jantzen is in between alfalfa cuttings and has at least three weeks before having any silage to chop. “We were a little dry at the first cutting; there was a really late freeze that set things back. There was a lot of stuff that got short on the first cutting and the second cutting looked better.” Jantzen is expecting a very good corn crop in southeastern Nebraska. “The corn started tasseling at the first of July. That went really well. We are looking at good crops here, but further north and west, they’re dry.”
