LDN -- Top Stories

On August 18th the Logan County Farm Bureau Young Leaders conducted their second annual Farm Tour, estimating yields for this fall harvest. The team surveyed fields from throughout the county and estimated the yields in each region before coming up with a country-wide average. They estimate that on the county-wide average corn yields will reach 218.4 bushels per acre. The team’s estimate of 175.7 BPA last year came within two bushels of the final results. The goal is to create an estimate within five bushels of actual yield. Once they did their work, the team drew an outline of the county and marked the areas they surveyed with ears of corn. Left to right, members of the team are Daniel Eeten, Eli Klokkenga, Matt Wrage, Jared Brown, and Kyle Atteberry. Team member Kyle Klockenga was not available for the photo.
