Submit your photos: Is your corn “Maxwell high” by the Fourth of July

Washington Co., WI – Knee high by the Fourth of July is an old-timey saying in the farming community; an early visual that could signal a prosperous corn growing season.

This picture of Maxwell Krueger, 1-1/2 years old, was submitted by Mom, Samantha Krueger of Krueger Dairy farms in Allenton who said, “Safe to say the corn is way over Maxwell high by the 4th of July!” Indeed. It seems Maxwell gets by with a little help from his Dad, Justin.



“Knee high” was always the saying but with improvements in genetics and pushing early planting dates we usually expect growth over the waist.
