With temperatures out of the sub-zero range and back to normal, what better time to check the soybeans that Kelly planted in December. Mike, Kelly and Connor head out to dig in and see for themselves.
Dan's son, David, took off for Hawaii this week for some much deserved vacation before things get real busy soon. A good reminder for all farmers that you work hard and should take some vacation time for yourself when you can. Especially, if subzero temperatures are in the forecast and you have someone like Dan to pick up the work while you are gone.
Chad is joined by TriGreen Equipment's Shannon Norwood to discuss an important update to the John Deere StarFire™ system. A mandatory update to the 6000 and 3000 systems will be needed beginning February 1, 2021, to avoid service interruption.
Matt Miles is spending some off-season time moving his rice crop out of bin storage and onto a barge. This is where he really appreciates the unique bin storage system he developed that allows for easier movement of grain and multiple offload points.
Dan spends his rainy days where you'd expect Dan to spend them. In the shop surrounded by Iron. Take a look at that beautiful 4430 though.
Everyone is telling Kelly that his idea to plant soybeans in December is a bad one, but he doesn't care. So, he's got a few bags of beans and he's putting in 30 acres before winter sets in.
Dan Loves the smell of chicken litter in the morning so it's no surprise that he is at it again at 3:30 am on a cold Northern Illinois morning. He's a big believer in the value of chicken litter as a soil enhancer.
It's been a great first year at XtremeAg. We learned a lot and we hope you did as well. We also had some fun, because if you are not having fun while farming, then you are not farming the right way. Thank you to all our partners and members for making 2020 a great year. Here we come 2021!
"XtremeAg to me is real farmers sharing and collaborating their experiences with others in an honest and unbiased environment."
