Midwest Crop Tour - Day Two

Aug 23, 2011

Today was our lightest day of traveling. We left Grand Island, Neb., this morning at 7 a.m. and spent most of the day headed a little south, then east, then north, then east, then south and east to finish at Nebraska City, Neb., at the Lied Lodge at the Arbor Day Farm. If you have never been to this lodge, I highly suggest visiting it.

I would call the counts we had on our route nothing special either way. We had a couple around 200, a couple around 110 and the rest in the 120 to 175 range. We visited 10 counties and made a total of 10 counts. Our average bushels per acre for corn ended up at exactly 150.

In comparing our counts to the county averages for last year, two were higher, one was even and the other seven were lower, but you cannot tell anything from one route on the Tour. Pro Farmer will issue its calls for Nebraska and Indiana tonight, and I have no way of knowing which way they will go.

Tomorrow, we tour western Iowa and end up at Spencer, in the northwest corner of the state.

I will probably make a post after tonight with my thoughts on the numbers.
