Fast harvest could lead to additional projects for southwest Minnesota farmer


For one southwest Minnesota farmer, an early wrap to harvest could mean additional fall projects.

Dusty Neugebauer of Reading says once he and his dad started combining soybeans September 20th, they just kept rolling.

“In our geography, we kind of kept going right on through.  We caught up with the dryer a couple times, but other than that, no harvest delays as far as the weather was concerned.”

The Neugebauers finished harvesting corn earlier this week and if the mild weather holds, tiling might be added to their list of things to do.

“That’s one project that we’ve talked about.  We’ve got a couple farms that need a couple tiles fixed, and some other ones that could use a little more.  So we’re talking about putting that on the list.”

He tells Brownfield there are some fence lines that need to be cleaned up and other projects they haven’t been able to get to the last few years.

“We’ve put off (projects) for a number of years because we get finished up (with harvest), and the next day or two it freezes up.  So we’re kind of thankful that we’ll be able to do a few of those projects.”

Neugebauer says this harvest has been one of the smoothest he can remember.
