The 2022 Corn Cam

Corn cam hands-on learning

It's a beautiful fall 2022 day for some hands-on learning. Did we set the combine up correctly!? Let's measure and calculate losses, then tie those losses to a per acre price!

Corn crop emerged

First day of summer classes at DMACC Dallas County Farm. The corn cam plot is seeing corn emergence!

Corn planter

Not much planting was done on the 11th annual edition of the corn cam planting day, but the DMACC farm raised beef burgers were tremendous and the company was good! DMACC Agribusiness shout out to Matt Nelson and Byron Gutshall of Channel seed and Bob Quinn of WHO Big Show for stopping by.
