Hello and welcome to U.S. farm report, I’m John Phipps. There is something traditional about finishing harvest by Halloween in my area. It may date back to 2000, I think, when it began to rain Halloween night and the next thing we knew it was mid-December before the combines got rolling again. Now that's scary. It is also the time to get farm bookwork up to date. Strangely, much fewer bushels did not reduce that chore. It also often turns out the running estimates of our financial position we had been keeping in our heads during this anxiety-filled season were about as accurate as our yield estimates.
