Yes, harvest at Carnahan & Sons is done! We pulled through the last replanted corn at Huey on Saturday evening. We worked our way through this crop in 5 weeks, a relatively short time, but not a record. In 2016, we got done in 4 weeks! We credit the very good and dry weather during late September and early October for our timely finish. When we received a rain on Sunday morning, we were especially happy to be done.
Next fall, we won’t be done as early, because there will be double-crop soybeans after the wheat, and those won’t be ripe until late October. Now we can turn our attention to the many post-harvest tasks.
The clean-up of the equipment has begun. We will also bush hog around the perimeter of selected fields in order to clean up the appearance.
You can just begin to see the green of the emerging wheat crop, and the strips of cover crops, too.
We are grateful for this harvest, and the good weather to bring it in.
