There's a lot of pickers in use by PA Amish and Mennonites still. Don't know about in Ohio or Indiana. There also seems to have been a resurgence in ear cribbing 'here' by the steer feeders since shelled corn (and propane) prices went up. A good picker and grinder mixer will bring a premium locally (rust buckets still don't go for much). Also can't find any round corn cribs anymore, either, because those that weren't scrapped have been grabbed up by people wanting to fill them.

An enterprising person from "out east" should come out to southern MN/northern IA with a toolbox and a good-sized truck. You could drive around this area and pick up a truckload of round cribs for little or nothing in short order....

Most around here are grabbed up for dog or animal kennels.

For what little corn is picked by the Amish here it seems to be all done by hand. The Mennonites that raise corn for grain either combine it or produce snapage. Other than one exception I don't know of any pickers being used locally. I can't think of any sitting in the weeds since scrap metal went up a few years ago.
