Growing Feed & Cash Crops
We grow a mixture, of corn, soybeans, winter barley and winter wheat. All of the corn that we grow, we keep on farm as high moisture corn for feed for our swine operations. The soybeans we grow are all grown under seed contracts, meaning the beans we grow end up being planted the following year on other farms. Our winter barley crop is harvested before winter wheat, and those fields are immediately planted into a double crop soybean program. When we harvest our winter wheat, we follow up with a cover crop that can either be a plow down, or can be harvested by neighbouring farms who can use it as feed on their farms.
