Above normal temperatures and favorable field conditions allowed Wisconsin farmers to continue harvesting last week.
USDA reporters say about four-and-a-half days were suitable for fieldwork, and many areas were 10 degrees warmer than usual for mid-October.
Ninety-one percent of the state’s corn is mature and 24% of the corn-for-grain harvest is finished. More than 95% of the corn silage is harvested. Moisture content for the grain was averaging 21%, and 73% of the crop was in good to excellent condition.
