      • First cutting lots of material going through discbine we hit the windrows with old new idea cut conditioner day after cutting or rain refluff and break up stems again bale next day. We don't use soap to wash our hay though.

        Boy is doing great had extra syrup on pancakes with his scrambled eggs and hashbrowns after appt today. Any thing he doesn't have to bite is ok now so small pieces or mush to roof of his mouth like soft pasta and stuff.

            • Its great reading about the family successes. Farming is a great career to learn how to work and succeed at other careers.

              Ron's family is highly motivated and their farms are all successful.

              Duke spends more time 'funning' than lots of people do working.

              We all complain about medical costs and health concerns, but it is amazing how often tragic diseases are cured and lives are really improved. Congrats to the Duke and FR families

              • 4:30 this morning phone starts going crazy for flash flood warnin. Half awake all night, really loud thunder plus hard rain on roof. Dad's driveway had two spots water went over only third time in my 49 year memory. Bride went to work found cornstalks washed up on road. Entrance ramp to highway under water in Rochester. I'm guessing rain gauge is full. Two fields have water between rows that was there before last night. Hopefully the last high water we got cleaned out brush and trees from damming up river so this time water disappears quickly.

                • Here we are, living in WETern Washington, and I can't grasp having to worry about an overnight flash flood. The wettest day, in my memory, was 4 inches in 8 hours one early June..set windrows floating, but no washout. Part of benefit of having high organic, fine clay soils.[just my guess] 11 inches one FEB. would be the wettest month on memory, but then your crops aren't using an inch a week to grow, cuz its too early. When desert Kansas gets big rains, I understand, but the land of 10,000 lakes? IDK.

Neighbor has cattle pass under township road of course cows on one side calves on other he was watching finally calves decided to go through said a couple lost footing looked like kids on a water slide when they came through, everybody was ok I guess

                        • Summer finally found its way to da U.P. Been in the high 80s and mid 90s the past several days . I have seen a few area potato farmers who have started irrigating . Corn is O.K. , not great , and has not started rolling . We need some perfect weather , a lot more summer with rain and a late fall for the corn .

                          Today , the 4th , is the day in the U.P they say where you can take off your long johns . Tomorrow , the5th , you wash them . And , on the 6th , you put them back on !
                          Happy 4th Everyone .

                          • I don't know why every one complains about crops being behind. I know of several who have already harvested this year!
                            Last I knew there is at least one field of corn ready for harvest along I 90 in /south Dakota also!
                            I was talking to my local agronomist yesterday and he said corn grew 4 collars in the last 7 days. I am guessing he thinks we will get caught up. He may be right. According to the Pioneer website we are only 9 GDU' s behind now. Of course that is assuming one planted on the normal date.....

                              Thanks for your clarification. Must be why they call it a union suit! All these years we've been told your dogs ran away cuz they are scared of fireworks!!

                              • Well ole mother nature gave us a good one early this morning. 4.5 inches here, 6 inches just to our north. Drowned out spots in local fields just got bigger. Had about 120 acres to go on wheat harvest. Won't be doing any of that for a few days.
