Recent dry weather is helping speed up the harvest of Wisconsin farm crops. The Wisconsin Ag Statistics Service says 56 percent of the corn for animal feed has been harvested. But that’s still 11 days behind the average for the past five years as the result of wet fields in the summer — many of which didn’t dry up until September. Sixteen percent of the Wisconsin soybean crop is harvested, five days ahead of last year but about the same as the five-year average. Almost three fourths of the Wisconsin potato harvest is completed, and 53 percent of the state’s winter wheat is in the ground — seven days ahead of last year.
