nebraska corn farm land: Perception is Really the Deception of Reality! - 11/30/17 08:57 AM
Today I will travel a short 60 miles back to my hometown to say goodbye to a high school classmate who fought cancer for 9 years.
Our class of '71 was a group of 90 small town and farm kids who mostly all thought they were going to be superstars someday.  We now have lost 8  (I was reminded that it is now 9) that we know of and a few are off the map somewhere.
As I get older, I remind my younger wife and kids and friends that what we perceived in high school may not...does not exist most of the … (32 comments)

nebraska corn farm land: The Harvest is Coming In...And It Is Delicious! - 08/30/17 07:30 PM
Ahhh...I like Harvest...especially the garden kind. I also like the corn and soybean harvests...but the combines are a bit big to fit into my 20' x 35' garden.
So that means manual labor...harvesting by hands...both my wife's and mine!!
We had been getting a few beans and a few tomatoes and zucchini and cucumbers over the past month.  The peas did not do very well this year.
I have not dug up the potatoes yet but we have had two meals from one plant that I pulled out accidentally. 
So why am I even sharing this mundane information?  Well, to be honest, it is an … (14 comments)

nebraska corn farm land: Cross my Heart- I plan on Being in Better Touch in 2017! - 12/31/16 02:20 PM
Dear Everyone:
I admit it...I have done a lousy or not very good or mediocre or average job of staying in touch with you this past year.  This day and age...average or below is simply not good enough...and I probably fall into that category more times than I care to admit.
I promise in 2017 to make myself more visible to you so that when you hear of someone who is looking for the type of service I provide...you can remember me! And vice versa!
In 2016 I did not blog or send letters or postcards consistently...that will change in 2017.
In 2017 I will be much … (6 comments)

nebraska corn farm land: Country Roads Are DANGEROUS During Harvest! Please Be Careful!! - 10/13/16 02:07 AM
It is Corn Harvest Time and the country roads are scary as heck!!
There is no other way to say it than to be blunt. Some of the most dangerous roads in America right now are the Gravel Roads in Corn Country. The second are the 2 lane highways.
That encompasses virtually the entire midwest region of the USA and parts of Canada as well as other locations. There are grain trucks and combines and tractors with grain carts and extra employees all sharing the same roads along with the daily users. 
It can be dangerous out there...especially at intersections.
In addition, when meeting wide … (7 comments)

nebraska corn farm land: Farm Loans for Farmers - Are You Getting the Best Interest Rate? - 08/01/16 03:11 AM
Attention Farmers: Are you utilizing the FSA programs to your maximum benefit? 
Are you struggling with your farm operating loans from the Bank this season?  
It is no secret that margins are so tight every penny you find on the ground is important!!
I am hearing rumblings out there that some are in a tight spot.
My question to you is this:
Have you checked into the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) and what they have to offer? Have you stopped in to the FSA office to see if you there is any assistance available. 
Don't want to contact the local one...then get online … (1 comments)

nebraska corn farm land: Do You Provide References Up Front or Wait To Be Asked? - 04/14/15 01:27 AM
I used to be gung ho on providing client references right off the bat to new clients.  Now, if a potential client wants references to actually speak to...they and I need to have personally met in my office or at a farm before I fork over any phone numbers or email addresses.
Over the past year or so I have changed my thinking on that for a number of reasons.
1. I am great at what I do...I do not need references to back me up and verify that I am.
2. I do not like having clients information on a web page or anywhere else for … (17 comments)

nebraska corn farm land: Harvest Is Almost Complete - Yields are All Over the Place! - 10/28/12 11:44 AM
While some states have had a disasterous harvest this year, Nebraska has been all over the place.
A few areas have had good moisture and the dryland crops in those areas are excellent.
The photo here is of a field that has irrigation throughout most of it except the end section. You can see the difference between the irrigated and the dryland.
I have talked with farmers who have had corn yields on dryland as high as 165 bushel/acre and some who have zero bushels. I suspect the dryland yield on this field is almost zero.
I would say that the … (2 comments)
