Field corn still in the fields
Every spring, significant acreage in Central Ontario is planted in field corn.
Harvester cutting field corn
Although much of this year's field corn has already been cut, some is just now being harvested.
When autumn weather is dry, many Ontario farmers harvest field corn before the first snow falls. But during wet years, farmers may wait until spring.
Here in Ontario, field corn is often called cow corn because it is said to be excellent for raising cattle if it's harvested when it's NOT too wet or too dry, and if it's properly fermented.
