Road Trip

I attended a class in ON-farm research at Iowa State University. It made me very reluctant to attempt anything we might try to call research. Demonstration plots may be OK. The drive was much too exciting on Wednesday with bad road conditions to the Quad Cities where i delivered a manure management plan. I did not go out much because of slick streets. Just hung out in the hotel room.

The trip home was more pleasant but the day got long. I arrived home at 11:30 PM.

Cold weather seems to have set in although temperatures were pleasant today. Frost in corn stalks was 2 to 4 inches deep. Tilled land was 4 to 8 inches deep. Pasture was not frozen. Harvest is still ongoing with about 95% of corn done i this area.
