Hey Paul !

We farm north of Champaign County - Peoria, Stark, and Knox. And have all soil types from gravel to rich, black silt loam.

Very few beef or milk herds around here ... everything is shipped. Again, no fences to speak of.

That's true about using fertilizer. We regularly get 260-280 bu/acre yields (one field made 302 bu last year!)

In our area, you don't see many "old red barns" ... mostly ten thousand bushel bins and we're starting to see many 100,000 bushel bins now.

We are fairly close to the Illinois river, so most grain is hauled direct to the river terminals.

Where do you live?
