Wisconsin corn farmers remain ahead of normal in harvesting

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin farmers are still well ahead of normal in harvesting their corn.

Officials said 87 percent of the state’s corn for grain has been brought in as of Sunday.

That’s 10 percent more than a week ago – and it’s 31 percent ahead of the average for the last five years.

Officials say no part of Wisconsin is in an extreme drought anymore, but overall soil moisture still declined a little bit. 50 percent of farm fields are short or very short of moisture, and only 3 percent have a surplus.

Corn yields are below normal in the southern half of Wisconsin – but it’s a different story in the north, where above average yields have some farmers hauling corn to southern areas where storage can be found.

More corn is also being used for supplemental forage. Farmers are said to be 50 percent short on their hay and roughage supplies for feed – and just 6 percent have a surplus.
