Plainwell and Otsego: Still not scheduled to start yet.

Hope to have Plainwell and Otsego working this weekend or the first of next week. Please check back later for start date for Plainwell and Otsego. 


Not many acres of corn to detassel this year so will not see many days of work this year. Sorry! The reduction in seed acres is something we talked about at the sign-up meeting so not a surprise to anyone.
