Producer Progress Reports: Came Farms

  • Updated

Salina, Kan.

We recorded .21 inches of rain this morning. I believe this is the first moisture we have received since my last report. With all the hot, dry days we had last week, the wheat definitely needed the rain. The wheat has started heading out here.

All our corn is in and we managed to get half our soybean acres in last week. The guys worked long days trying to get as much in as possible. They were also doing burn downs in front of the planter and drill. Everything was going in the ground very well. The moisture we got this morning should help get everything that went in last week to come up.

The cattle are all out on grass now. We have been spraying thistles in the pastures also.

It was a bittersweet weekend for Bill and me. Bill’s youngest son, Spencer, and my second son, Avery, both graduated from high school. They had a great ceremony with a very inspirational speaker. A lot of what she said really hit home with me. She told the graduates that life is full of hardships and adversity that they won’t be able to control, but they are in control of how they react to that particular hardship or adversity. Last week, Bill and I discussed how weather seems to be our biggest adversary right now. The speakers’ thoughts were a good reminder that although we may not be able to control the weather, we can choose how we react to it.
