What are you predicting for corn yields this fall (leave an estimated number in the comments)?

After the July 11 WASDE report said estimated corn yields were reduced by 20 bu. from the June report, we want to know, what are you predicting for corn yields, as a percentage of what's normal or average on your farm. We'd love to know numbers, too, so leave a comment with a bushel-per-acre estimate, as well as your county/state.

It takes a lot of real good acres to make up for zero yields on
poor or no polination stalks. 80 bu/ac corn can be common.

Redwood County, Mn. Earlier in the season corn looked like 180 to 200 bu. but in the last two weeks with no rain and the extreme heat we will be looking at 140 to 150 max. Soybeans are finally starting to grow and yield will be made in the next month. maybe 40 plus with no more hail and some rain SOON

I have been walking fields most of the week. I am seeing from 0-130 bpa
Normal yields are 130-250
We do not have soybeans but the beans in our area are suffering as well. They are flowering and have no moisture with high heat.
