For what it is worth 

Locally beans are getting started yields are disappointing moistures still in the 13+ % and elevators rejecting any beans over 14%, Corn is barley started , Every hay field in the entire area must be cut down and if it was cut last week it looks like there is a chance to get it dry. And we did have our first snow hit Dyersville I have a picture on our Facebook page

All bad things must come to an end

The fight to make hay, straw and cornstalks exempt from oversize load permits has been taken up by State Rep Ashley Hinson. Has most of you know Iowa is the only state that surrounds us that makes people transporting hay to have oversize load permits , One for state roads, one for county roads for each county and one for city roads. This has made the moving of round bales almost impossible causing hay prices in Iowa to be amongst the highest in the country, DSC has only seen one load of western round bales and the DOT caught him and gave him a $600 ticket for basically having South Dakota plates on his truck. These permits do more than keep hay out in years of hay shortages but in years of surplus it keeps buyers out and prices too low. With the severe shortage of truckers they can pick and choose what they want to haul and with Iowa’s permit nightmare hauling 5ft round bales isn’t gonna happen. The permits are hurting family farmers, hurting and hay growers. these people are doing nothing more than trying to move feed around in order to put food on peoples plates and right now they are doing it at a loss. This has nothing to do with safety it’s a revenue issue
Today we are calling out Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds and Iowa Sec of Agriculture Mike Naig to immediately suspend the requirement for hay, straw and cornstalks for oversize loads permits throughout the entire state of Iowa and work with Rep Ashley Hinson , and State Sen Carrie Koelker to pass legislation to permanently make hay, straw and cornstalks exempt from oversize load permits.
