2/8/15- Winter Activities

February’s colder weather allowed the ground to freeze, and we began picking up our bags outside Blue Mound.  The operation went very smoothly, and light traffic at the Decatur processors allowed for trucks to make quick turns back to the field.  Current activities include delivering corn and equipment preparation for Spring.
