Area grain elevators packed to the max
Harvest just began and yet area grain elevators are being stuffed full.
Jim Bobb, Southwest Grain division manger, said he hasn't seen a crop this large in the 27 years he's worked for the company.
"The yields are probably 125 percent of what it would normally be," Bobb said. "I would say the crop is pretty even all over, just in different stages. A lot of our smaller facilities are full."
