We've been done in Virginia, well most of us, sine November 8. Eastern part, I'm located between Fredricksburg and Yorktown. Weather was pretty good this year, little dry to start then regular rains up to harvest. Corn was pretty good for the variety and the year ran 168 Bu/ac which was the best I've done in that particular field with test weights between 56 and 60 at 15 to 17% moisture. Beans, slightly different, yields were great at 53 bu/ac but test weight was 53 and moisture started at 13% and ended at 11.5. Corn usually comes off in September here and beans October and November. I usually plant corn either the last weeend in March or the first weekend in April, this year was 4/12 and started combining about 9/13. Beans were planted May 10 or 17 and started combining about 10/18, finished 11/2.
That poor little 4400 works it's heart out on those kind of yields. Ran good but I had to learn just how slow would keep it working and me not digging out the jams.

Here in central WI my Dairyland corn gave me 140 BPA and 56 test weight at 17 percent. I'm quite happy with that considering the weather we had.

My ears looked good, filled out well, long. But they were very thin, yield was off quite a bit.

Dried down well, even with the wind storm I got, and the test weight was high, 57-59.

Just wish the yield had been a tad better, and wish tht wind storm had missed me by.

I think you'll break even, but that's a real downer. We made 157 average with 55-56 test weight, but moisture was 31-36. Drying was about $33/tonne. Don't know how we got the good test weight, but I'm not going to complain. Corn was DeKalb 34-46 RR2. Overall I'm happy with it, considering the low CHU area we're in.
