I talked to one guy this morning, that has 150 acres of silage to do still. Plus, has round stacks sitting in windrows waiting to be done.

At this point we probably will have to wait until the ground freezes to get back into the field

Yeah, I think we got about half of the snow melted, but it is supper muddy out. My truck looks atrocious.
