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.
