    This last week we posted an article on CropWatch newsletter about planning to deliver soybeans at optimum moisture at the market place that wants 13% soybeans.  In a way that is really ironic because processing soybean meal for feed, the miller will prefer 10 to 11 percent moisture soybeans. 

   Paul Jasa, UNL Ag Engineer, worked on some tips with combine adjustments to allow for harvesting sooner, before soybeans become overly dry and shatter losses increase at 8 and 9% moisture.  The article that says it’s better to take a small dockage than waiting too late to harvest soybeans is at: cropwatch.unl.edu/2017/plan-harvest-deliver-soybean-optimum-moisture

Credit experts recommend that consumers freeze their credit to reduce their risk of becoming an identity theft victim. This has to be done individually with each of the “Big Three” credit reporting agencies (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion), plus some experts also recommend doing a freeze with a lesser-known credit reporting agency called Innovis to “cover all the bases.” That means making 4 separate freeze requests per person or 8 requests for a couple.
