The 2018 planting season has been delayed due to the wet and cold weather across the Midwest. We have all our machinery ready to go but have not started due to wet field conditions. We expect to start in the next week or two as long as no more flooding occurs. If we try to plant too early, we may end up like the tractor below!

Dry fall conditions allowed us to finish the Harvest 2017 season on October 21, 2017. We begin 30 days prior and only had a few rain-outs during the month. We greatly enjoyed Harvest 2017 and we will now continue to begin fall tillage in preparations for the 2018 crop.

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.

A wet spring forced McKay Farms to have to replant nearly 1000 acres. #Plant17 Season officially finished during Memorial Day weekend. We will start cleaning equipment and walking the fields to monitor the crops and inspect for any potential diseases. We look forward to sharing pictures of the Planting Season during the coming weeks.

For the second consecutive year, McKay Farms begins the Planting Season on April 19th. An extremely mild February followed by a wet spring delayed the early planting season. We are excited to be back at work with over 100 acres planted in the first full day.
