Growing Boldly: Set Up to Succeed


You know, everyone talks about 400-bushel corn. Well I don’t want 400, I want 443. That’s the non-irrigated record. Yeah, it’s nice – you got to get to 400 first, but who cares about 400? I want to be the top dog. It ain’t like we’re really competing against anybody else. Ya know, I can’t control anybody else’s weather. Well I can’t even control mine, but we can control our setup for our success. DEKALB® gives us a 7-15-bushel advantage every year. Last year was a record-breaking year for us. Five different DEKALB products went over 350-bushel corn. No other lineup has that kind of power. It speaks for itself. 62-08 should be in the Hall of Fame the first product to ever go over 500-bushel corn. It helped pave the way for high yields now. DKC64-35 has been a phenomenal product. It was our second product to ever go 400 on our farm last year, on our test plot. 67-44 is probably the highest yielding genetics we’ve ever had on our farm. And there ain’t hardly anybody, all the way up to the top of the line, that don’t my kids’ first names. You know, hell, half the time I don’t even know my kids’ names. My girls are getting old enough – they’re competitive. Just like me, they hate to lose. And eventually, that’s what we’re instilling in them. Ya know, nothing comes easy in life. If you want to be successful, you can’t sit around. Don’t be a follower, be a leader and that’s why we plant DEKALB.
