Harvest is picking back up for western Illinois farmer Jay Peterson after some recent delays.
“Glad we’re going again after being shut down by some rain. We can’t bring the trucks very far into the field, but we’ll deal with that so we can keep on going.”
He tells Brownfield his corn and soybean yields have been remarkable. “I’d say I’m probably 70% done with all the acres I got to get over and so far the yields have been exceeding my wildest dreams considering the summer we had.”
Peterson farms near Lynn Center in Henry County.
