PILE CORN HIGH FOR LATER DRYING: Aided by favorable weather farmers in Carroll County are hauling corn to drying facilities faster that it can be handled. While some elevators in the county have chosen not to take any corn after their dryer bins are full, the Farmers’ Grain Company in Breda has elected to take corn the dryers cannot handle and store it in a pile for later drying. Dean Tiefenthaler, partner in the Breda company, helps unload a wagon of corn. The corn pile behind Tiefenthaler Thursday contained slightly more than 80,000 bushels, and before the drying is completed he estimated the pile would grow to 125,000 bushels.
