Northeast Iowa farmer keeping busy during harvest

A northeast Iowa farmer is working ground and applying fall fertilizer.

Bob Hemesath of Calmar raises corn and has a wean-to-finish hog operation.

“Got the crew here, they are incorporating manure as we speak. Got some tillage going on, doing some fall tillage on some corn-on-corn. And getting some fertilizer spread on the stuff we get combined, so normal fall stuff for us I guess.”

He tells Brownfield rising input costs are concerning.
