Only five percent of Wisconsin's corn for grain has been harvested, and that's 12 days behind schedule.

The state Ag Statistics Service says 72-percent of the corn for animal feed is in the bin, five days behind the average. Widespread rain showers slowed last week's field work, but grain moisture levels were reduced by the dry weather in September and early October. Sixty-nine percent of the state's corn is rated good to excellent, along with 72-percent of the soybeans. Almost one third of the beans have been harvested, four days ahead of last year but one day behind the five year norm.
