    Crop progress

    looks like a big swath of rain over SD this morning. too late for the corn and soybeans, but will sure help replunish the subsoil moisture levels.

    Emergency haying.

    agree, the competition, just to find a place to hunt is going to be horrific, especially opening weekend. i was going to come, but now i think i will pass. Walking over guys is not worth it.

    CRP May Be Hayed or Grazed

    there is/was over 1 million aces designated to have CRP contracts expired this year, 2021. obviously not all of this ground was in the WI program, but a lot of it was. that ground is gone, back into production. those acres left are subject to emergency grazing, which seems to happen ever year...
