We’ve heard a lot about wind damage to corn but I guess it’s not just limited to here in Ohio. Pam Fretwell, Conklin Companies, was working here at the Farm Science Review and shared a few photos of the damage in Illinois. That’s going to be tough to harvest!

Here’s the New Holland crew after just finishing corn harvesting at the Farm Science Review. I spoke to Mike Craig about what they found. He says they had been running for two days and that they were getting between 130 to 150 bushels with 18 to 20% moisture. I asked him what’s new from New Holland and he says it’s …

Precision Ag At Farm Science Review

Field demonstrations got into full swing this afternoon at the Farm Science Review. I think this is the first show to be able to provide in-field demos and farmers were out to see the show. You really couldn’t have had better weather to harvest corn and soybeans and demonstrate tillage and manure spreading. The breeze even blew away from the …

Got Propane In Your Truck?

Chuck Zimmerman

The Roush Ford F-150 on display at the Ohio Propane Gas Association exhibit here at the Farm Science Review is the big draw. With high diesel prices it’s easy to understand why. On hand to talk about it is Roush Vehicle Marketing Coordinator, Taylor Bloor. He drove the vehicle down from Michigan. It’s a bright white truck that runs on …
