Annexation And Farm Opportunities

Last night was our annual Farm Bureau meeting.  We had a very good speaker  on how to accept the resent annexation that has taken place in out town,  They are taking  a lot of farm ground I know they have their reasons but for the farmer the reasons are not good enough.  I live in the buffer zone and have for 30 years and we have a feed lot but a river separates us from the city.  I am glad they stopped at the river.  
A lot of towns go through growth  We are expecting I69 to come past the East side of our town and that is what they want to control.
We have been in the field for 3 weeks  Not a pretty sight.  Every day we hear something different about what is going on with the quality of corn that is being trucked home,  Indy and other places.  Are we suppose to dry it,  are we to ship and not dry.      Hoping we will find out in the morning there is a meeting of several who are in the know and maybe they have all the answers   None of the field around here are worth anything as far as yields go.  Spending more on fuel and wear and tear on equipment. 
Have a safe harvest until another time


  1. Bless your hearts! Sounds like life is full of challenges right now. Our corn is just making it in to the triple digit average, but beans seem to running closer to normal numbers so far. Our hearts break to hear the low numbers I know you all are seeing in the southern part of the state. To have farm ground lost on top of this is very frustrating. Hugs and prayers to you.

    1. We understand how this works and we know there is another year. Thanks for your comments
