With $3.00 corn at 120 bpa I can make $160 per acre profit on
ground that I own.I have some contracted for $3.25 off the
combine in Sept 2007.

This year if I had stored my corn for 7 weeks after harvesting it in
mid August I could have made another $14,000 on just 77
acres.Corn is my biggest money maker.

If you have the time, $ and shed space, why not give it a shot? You only live once. Have someone plant it or any other step that doesn't work welll for you. I was in the same position and felt generations of farming behind me pushing me to go for it. 3 years ago it was 10 acres and now it's over 100. You can find some items for cheap (combines) and just make some friends with the other stuff. It's amazing how much a fellow neighbor will help another out. I'm ready to part with my 6600 combine, need a cheap small one? I bought my first combine for 10 acres for $500. It was a MF410 and both heads. Give it a shot. $3.50 corn helps also.
