You said "Pick corn" Are you shelling or did you mean pick the corn. Ear corn in wire or wooden cribs can be almost 30% moisture.

I would be running a combine and shelling almost all of the corn. A dozen rows or so I will run the old picker over it and leave it on the ear. I can sell these for wildlife feed by the bag. I also use it to feed our small flock of heavy geese. They take it right off the cob.

From what I understand you are trying to get in on the "cheap", and are willing to put in some extra labor to save costs along the way, yes? Saying that, why not pick up some used round cribs and pick it all ? Come spring it will be dry as a bone, get an old Moline or JD sheller and then run it in the bin. Lots of handling sure, but less expense. I did it this way for years, on a small scale like you are doing.
