By Lucy HalversonThe 2004 fall harvest was a long and drawn out experience for many Lyman County area farmers but didn't produce an exceptionally abundant harvest. According to Stan Collins, manager of the Farmers Union Coop Elevator in Kennebec they started receiving Milo October 4th. "As of today (Monday, November 22nd), I'd say the harvest is more or less done, now. There may be some downed milo out there that may or may not get harvested," stated Collins. Milo taken in at Kennebec averaged about 53 to 54 pounds. Historically, the elevator piles grain on the ground during the busist part of the harvest season then picks it up later once the incoming flow of grain slows down.

The elevator has piled 310,000 bushels of milo since the middle of October on land located north of town that belongs to Mike Arnoldy. "It's not the biggest pile, we've had bigger ones in the past," Collins stated. No corn was piled on the ground this year. Just 200,000 bushels of corn were received at the elevator.

Some grain has been picked up and hauled to the main elevator but the majority will be trucked to Highmore and loaded on grain cars as soon as a train becomes available. Collins expects to receive a train and cars around the 15th of December. Grain cars are in short supply due to an abundant corn and soybean harvest in eastern South Dakota and further east.

Monday's price for Milo was $1.66 a bushel while corn was $ 1.70 per bushel.

Take time to give thanks

On Thursday many of us will gather around a table with family and friends and partake in a delicious Thanksgiving dinner while giving thanks for our many blesses. I am especially thankful that a few unfortunate incidents and accidents that recently occurred involving members of my family were not any worse than they were.

Here's a few of the things I'm thankful for.

Be thankful for seat belts, infant car seats, and a young mother who is adamant that her children buckle up.
