Hello from Lyons
By Logan Eliason, Location Manager, Lyons
 

Summer is upon us in full force. Dealing with the heat has been no joke! Tuesday in our area we reached a new record high temp of 105 for that calendar date. Along with the heat was some good for part of the area Tuesday night; we received about a ¼ inch of rain. Crops in the area near Lyons look very good compared to some other places around. We will definitely not turn away any rain though!

Things have slowed down at our location a bit for the summer months. We had a successful spring here with spraying and fertilizing. On the grain side of things, we have finished loading trains for the summer and have all our corn on the ground back in the bins. Traffic off the farm has been slow but steady now.

I will end my update for Lyons as always, safety is a number one for us and for our customers. With fall nearing let’s all be mindful of safety when cleaning bins preparing for fall. 62% of grain engulfment ends in fatality. In closing let’s keep safety in mind at home and on the farm. Please if you have any concerns or questions regarding fertilizer, chemical, or grain feel free to call your agronomist and our origination staff.
