When #Plant18 becomes #Blizzard18 and #Flood18 a song like this one is born. Enjoy as much as you can while you are stewing in the shop with your shiny tractors and calibrated planters. I just hope it gives you a little reason to smile. –Ty Higgins, Ohio Ag Net

Like many farmers, Fayette County’s Wes Montgomery wasn’t expecting much as he started the combine up and headed for the corn rows. But as he tells the Ohio Ag Net’s Ty Higgins in this Cab Cam brought to you by Fennig Equipment, things are quite a bit better than anticipated in his part of the state.
Ty Higgins spent Tuesday chasing dust (and a lot of it) as harvest begins to ramp up across Ohio. He made a stop in Wyandot County to visit with Kyle Brown for a Cab Cam, brought to you by Fennig Equipment. Kyle and his Dad have a hog operation in addition to row crops and the work load seems just about right for the two of them. Ty finds out how the growing season fared in their part of the state and how soybean harvest is going early on.
