Hopefully we’ll see some extended days of sunshine and get to working on this crop. Yield reports look very good and it will be so nice to get some to town. Calf runs up in the Dakotas are in full swing and markets have been on fire. Ranching is hard work so it’s nice to see them see a significant boost to their bottom line!! As always be safe out in the fields and be respectful to all the big equipment on the roads. It is a dangerous time of year.
