Rein- your comment about farm house severances speaks volumes about the difference between, what I would call a real farmer, and a person who wants to farm.

To Clean or Not to Clean? Managing DON in Grain Corn

A number of growers cleaned corn this fall in efforts to reduce DON. Whether it is on the combine or at the bins, the general message is to remove as much fines or cob as possible as these harbour the highest levels of DON. Cleaning reports were variable however; some reported good luck in reducing DON, while others reported little or no change.
