After we finish soybeans we roll right into combining corn. In the field it is pretty hard to tell the difference between High Moisture Corn and dry corn. So here are a few scenes from combining corn, some from high moisture, some from dry.
We use the same combine, with a 6 row Geringhoff chopping head. This head chops up the stalk as it pulls the ear off the stalk, as opposed to a conventional head which just breaks the ear off and leaves the stalk. This helps the residue decompose faster without us having to make a separate pass through the field with a stalk chopper.
I love the fall harvest, but I am also relieved to be done! Many long long days were put in by everyone so it is always nice to be done! All told we combined a little over 500 acres for our selves, and another 200ish for a couple our people.
I still have some videos from combining corn that I need to post as well! 🙂
