Enter the Tall Corn Contest Today!

Thanks to everyone who entered last week’s “Tall Corn Contest” on Facebook. Congratulations to Keesia Wirt! Winner of the first official “Tall Corn Contest” with a guess of 3’9” — just two inches off from the actual corn height in Uncle Jim’s field at 3’7”. We’ll send a prize your way by mail and you will be entered for the grand prize drawing in September.

Enter today!

Below is an updated picture of the corn in Uncle Jim’s field — as you can see it’s gotten so tall we can’t take pictures of him standing “in” the field anymore or guessing would prove pretty difficult. (You’d have to find Uncle Jim first!)

Simply visit www.facebook.com/LathamSeeds and enter your guess answering the question, “How tall is the corn in Uncle Jim’s field?” The person with the closest guess will win a prize and be entered to win the grand prize in September. (Winners will be selected every Thursday between now and September). For a list of contest rules, click here.

We also wanted to share recent news from Iowa Secretary of Agriculture, Bill Northey, on crop conditions in Iowa. While some welcome sunshine helped many fields suffering from too much moisture, rain over the weekend meant many areas in Iowa are still threatened by flood water.
