Clay County Harvest 2015

Clay County Harvest, 2015
David spent some time this week with Brent who is the farmer operating US Farmland Fund’s land near Vermillion, SD. The corn was dry and yields were running around 240 bushels per acre. Brent was driving truck while his son was driving the grain cart and his father the combine. They were very pleased with the crop!
