Dry weather conditions allowed us to work non-stop during the last 2 weeks. We were able to successfully finish soybean harvest and begin shelling corn. We have nearly 200 acres of corn complete but will have to take the weekend off due the the recent rain showers. Check out our pics of #harvest17.

As the snow melts away in Central Illinois, McKay Farms is preparing for another successful Farming Season. We have a lot of work to get accomplished before planting time including the cleaning of 11 grain bins. Grain is currently being hauled away and before we know it, we will be beginning #Spring17.We can't wait!
