MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - About half of Wisconsin's corn for grain has been harvested. 

New federal numbers show that 95 percent of that corn is mature. With moisture levels still relatively good, farmers appear to be in no hurry to haul the product away. 

97 percent of the corn for feed has been harvested.

82 percent of the Wisconsin soybeans have been harvested -- but a number of reports show there are below average yields, low pods, and short plants. 

92 percent of the fourth crop alfalfa is made. Hay and roughage supplies are said to be 70 percent adequate. 

Growing degree days from March through October are above normal throughout Wisconsin.
