Annual Corn Harvest Photos, 2012

Every year, during corn harvest, I like to take photos of the boys in the field, and today was the day to grab some shots before the choppers finish up and move on to the next farm.
The ears on our corn are very big this year, many of them are 10-12" long!
While we were there, the chopper came by - look out!
I love this photo, and am so proud that our little guys already have a love for agriculture!

This is what the corn looks like after it's been chopped. Ear, stalk and all. It gets packed onto a concrete storage area known as the "pit", where it is covered with heavy plastic to ferment into silage, and then fed as an ingredient in our mixed feed rations.
