MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's corn harvest is moving forward.

Officials say three percent of the state's corn for grain has been harvested, along with 54 percent of the corn for animal feed. 

Some crop reporters say silage corn was too wet to chop after Saturday's heavy rains in many parts of the Badger State. Despite that rain, 59 percent of the topsoil is rated short or very short of moisture. That's about 4 percent less than a week ago. 

In general, 44 percent of the Wisconsin corn is rated good to excellent, and 31 percent fair.

About 42 percent of the state's soybeans are in good to excellent shape, and 32 percent is rated fair.  

Officials say the potato harvest is underway in Portage, Marquette, Langlade, Vilas, and Dunn counties.
