Drought Conditions Stress Corn Crop, Hogs

July 18, 2012

A producer from Neoga, Ill., says this summer’s tough weather is causing many challenges on his diversified farm.

 

Christopher Walk, from Neoga, Ill., attended Corn College near Heyworth, Ill., this week to learn about how to maximize corn yields.


He says he learned a lot that he can take back to his own farm, which will be especially helpful this year, amid the current challenging weather conditions.


"Our crops are looking poor, and we’ve had little rain. Without rain, you can’t have corn."


Walk and his family also raise hogs and are making sure they stay cool and comfortable. He says they’ve been running box fans and sprinklers.
