Lloyd Conine of Menominee wrapped up end-of-the-year custom harvesting of corn in the mid-county Dec. 30. After a dry growing season, a wet October delayed harvesting and prevented the corn from drying down as much as desired. Conine said the cold weather is a help because the combine shakes the snow off the plants. In spite of the dry 2009 growing season, he estimated yield at between 80 and 100 bushels, but said there was a lot of deer damage to the field, which was planted by Theuerkaufs' Elmbrook Farms. Conine has seen a lot of wildlife in the field including deer, pheasants and porcupines.
