Corn Seed

Corn chopping started Monday. I haven't taken any pictures so I thought I would substitute this picture I took in the shop after we finished planting corn this spring. Each of those bags contained enough seed to plant 2.22 acres at a rate of 36,000 plants per acre. I'll let you do the math yourself. There are enough bags there to plant about 28 million plants. So far this week we have chopped about 8.6 million corn plants into silage

Never did get any silage pics this year. Here are some pics from last season.


  1. That is an amazing amount of corn. We are chopping too, but not so much....especially since the gathering chain broke yesterday.

  2. Sorry I don't have any corn harvest pictures from this year but I do have pictures from last year and you can check them out by clicking here.
