"A lot of farmers sold their corn on contract and some are getting $6 a bushel for that," said Myers. "This big crop may mean they don't have enough storage so that will probably start sending prices down."
While some farmers may just now be starting their harvest others are moving in a hurry to finish the harvest. "The moisture content is about right," said Boyd. "We have about 50 percent of our crop harvested."
"We've got about 30 percent of our crop in," said Myers. "It's a big crop. We're going to be working a lot of hours. It's still pretty early. I think we are pretty much on target to get it in."
Farmers looking at good corn crops know that some strong winds or a long wet spell could still cut into the results this year. "We'll stay at it," said Boyd. "After all, it's not a crop until its in the bin."
