Locally  we are down to the gambling hay acres just a few guys still trying to get hay baled . Cornstalk baling is in full swing and lots of dry bales are getting baled thanks to the welcome drought yes when it doesn’t rain for a week we call it a drought, Still way too many beans out in the field the wet and heavy dews are limiting harvest hours the Corn harvest is doing very well with some farmers all done, yields are good but quite a bit less than expected..

We can use more big squares runs of big square bales have been down dramatically the past month , sellers you may want to get some moving and it will likely pay to get off the combine while runs are low,
