Producer Progress Reports: Came Farms

  • Updated

Salina, Kan.

We keep getting a little bit of rain at a time. We recorded .11 inches on May 18, .48 inches on May 19, and .34 inches on May 25. These small amounts of rain don’t keep us out of the fields very long, so planting is going well. We are 90 percent done getting the soybeans in. The corn and soybeans coming up look excellent at this point. We will start putting milo in sometime after Memorial Day. We have been doing the post-emerge spraying on the corn and will begin the post-emerge on the soybeans soon.

Wheat harvest looks like it will start mid-June with all the warm days we have been having. Our wheat doesn’t look great, so we will be glad to get harvest going and done.

All the cattle are out on pasture and we have started calving. We are seeing some problems with ticks. We will probably catch the cattle in at least one pasture and treat for flies and ticks. The kids have been a big help spraying thistles in the pastures and keeping the farm mowed. We have also been mowing road ditches to control weeds.

We spent the end of last week attending the high school 2-1A state baseball tournament in Great Bend. My two boys, Avery and Owen, and Bill’s son, Spencer, and Chad’s son, Joel, all played for Ell-Saline. We won regionals and advanced to the state tournament. They took third at state! They had a great group of boys and a great coaching staff and they will take a lot of awesome memories from this season.

Local commodity basis level — Cargill in Salina: wheat, -$0.20; milo, -$0.35; corn, -$0.35; soybeans, -$0.80. — Darcy Came Bradley
