I have heard that there is some corn leaf disease showing up in Wayne County too.If there are molds and toxins in the plants it can show up in the silage and then you can be dealing with high toxin levels in the feed. The molds that show up in the ear are a problem, but it is hard to determine the cost verses the payback on spraying a fungicide for silage. It takes a ton of silage just to pay for the spraying and to get a return you need to get an extra ton and it is questionable whether that will happen or not.Normally we just wait longer to get the forage drier when the moisture is high, but this year we have mowed and chopped in the same day a couple of times on the haylage because that is all the window we’ve had. We have definitely put up wetter forage than we ever have this year and a good inoculant will help that more than forage chopped at optimal moisture. It has been very difficult to get haylage done. We haven’t had much more than a day or two without rain for the last couple of months, but we have been squeaking it out. All of our second cutting is done, but we haven’t tried to dry bale any of it. A lot of guys in this area have been doing the same thing we have.The beans are looking pretty good. A lot of them are coming around but guys are getting behind on spraying and there is weed pressure. The wheat did well this year. It was coming off around 16% moisture and yielded around 81 bushels per acre. There is still some wheat out there yet, but ours is done. There have been a lot of elevators not taking wheat around here because of the quality issues.
