moisture was around 16.9-17.4% When I got into my wetter corn, there were less problems.
everything is peachy keen!

I had a lot of drought damaged corn. I still beat the national average, but the fields were spotty. I hit 303 bpa corn in teh same field where I got 1 bpa corn.
everything averaged out nice. Im glad im done! that is all I can say. I had major stress over this crop as the land owner I leased from has teh property for sale I was worried about what would happen if I didn't get teh corn off before the land sold. just being done feels great.
I did make a big mistake, though...

My 70 year old father was getting stiff and sore running grain carts with side augers, not corner augers. I put him at teh helm of the combine and he never once did a spot check. he ran down fifty acres without a single notice to performance. he has no clue how combines work.
while waiting on him for a fill, I walked out and kicked over some chaff and saw a bunch of ears with tons of kernels left on them. I know the moisture was about 3% higher on that part, so I told him to increase cylinder speed, check his work, and continue. needless to say he had no idea what I was talking about, so he just kept running. I have no idea how many bushels I left out there, but I'd say it was over a 1000. That's like leaving $7000 in cash to blow in teh breeze and scatter over the farm. YOY! I'm mildly depressed over that.
otherwise, I'm thankful for all the help, and now I know a JD combine very well. I put everything into research and learning and it will benefit me now that I have teh experience. I can't thank you enough.
