Harvesting corn in March is snow joke

Here is a crop of standing corn taken yesterday when the snow was still about. 

There is a fair bit of corn left from last year which will add to 2011 stocks once it's cut and at today's CPT price of 1,900UAH (237USD) I suspect a lot of it will get cut.

No idea what the quality will be like, I'm told it should be fine and that it is common practice to leave un-harvested crops standing through the winter in Iowa.  Is this true?
