John Pruss, general manager at United Farmers Mercantile Coop(UFMC) in Red Oak, IA (712-623-5453), would be the first to admit that weather during fall harvest in south-western Iowa isn’t always conductive to heavy grain dryer usage. “We really only have a good drying year once every six or seven years,” he says.
