Farm show season is in full swing! Gary and Angie headed to Peoria, Illinois this week for the Peoria farm show. A great crowd attended despite less than favorable weather. We have a lot of things going on this time of year, planters are starting to enter the shop for rebuilds, and new cover crop projects are taking flight. With the colder weather some guys were able to get into the field and finish harvest, there is still a lot of crop in the field yet. The Buckeyes play this weekend for the Big 10 championship, tune into that Saturday.

Have a great weekend!

Manero Independent Corn Head
Setting up the Corn head For Maximum Efficiency
The corn head is as important of a tool to have in tune as the corn planter itself. 99% of farmers are not real sure how many bushels they are giving up at the corn head, and we need to change that. When we plant corn we count every seed that goes into the ground, yet we are happy harvesting just 95% of it. Make sure deck plates are adjusted, consider 360 yield savers to cushion and capture.
To make the combine as efficient as possible you need to harvest, and manage residue at the same time, and a few small additions can do just that.

  1. Add the Yetter Devastator! Of course it saves tires, but they also breakdown residue, returning key nutrients back into the soil!
  2. Yield 360 Yield Savers. Header loss is a bug deal. even just 4 bushel/ acre over 500 acres/year really adds up, even at todays prices. Don't leave kernels lay in the field.
  3. Yield 360 ChainRoll. These stalk rolls mimic a silage chopper to size and break open the cornstalk to facilitate rapid degeneration and return of nutrients to the soil.
Cassie's Country Cupboard Weekly Recipe:
Sweet Potato Gratin
I believed I hated sweet potatoes until one amazing holiday dinner about 20 years ago. My sister-in-law grew up in Oklahoma and shared this recipe with our family. Trust me, you won’t go wrong skipping the super-sweet, marshmallow-topped casserole and replacing it with this simple recipe.
Sweet Potato Gratin
6 medium sweet potatoes (about 3.5 pounds), peeled and ends trimmed
2 cups whipping cream
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Slice potatoes ¼” thick.
  3. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish. Place a layer of potatoes in dish. Sprinkle with part of the salt, pepper and jalapeno. Repeat layers until all are used.
  4. Pour cream evenly over top.
  5. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes. Check, and if top seems dry, baste lightly with cream from around edges.
  6. Continue baking for another 15-20 minutes until cream around sides is very thick and top is golden.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to sit at least 10 minutes before cutting into squares to serve.

What Are We Up To? Assemblies & Installs
This week we have been busy on the road visiting customers to talk about equipment. In the shop we have been working on putting together a fertilizer applicator for a customer.
We are all familiar with the standard redball flow indicators that tell you if you have a row blocked or not with liquid fertilizer. They work well, but while planting it can be hard to keep tabs on them all the time. Wilger has now introduced a system that reads row by row rates in the cab on an I pad readout! This will be a game changer, allowing guys to monitor very accurately inside the cab. You can adapt your current redball system to this new setup. Contact the FE team for pricing.
