Producer Progress Reports: Came Farms

  • Updated

Salina, Kan.

We have a little snow on the ground again here in Salina. It fell over the weekend and they are predicting more for this week. We’ll see what we end up with after it’s all said and done. The temperatures have been like a roller coaster the past couple of weeks. The varying day-to-day temps don’t help with all the illness going around. Some of the guys have had the flu and others of us have had just lingering colds.

The daily stuff around here is much the same as it’s been for the past month. We have guys cutting trees, watering cattle, and servicing combines. In the office, we are working on wrapping up financial stuff for 2017 and planning for 2018. Quite a bit of time last week was spent on making fertilizer and chemical plans for all the fields so that we could get our bulk fertilizer and chemical ordered. Cattle are all healthy and doing well.

Bill is traveling to Anaheim at the end of February to attend the Commodity Classic. We won first place for Kansas double crop milo yield. Bill also attended last year’s Classic in San Antonio because we won the same award last year for double crop milo. He really enjoyed going to San Antonio and is looking forward to going to Anaheim this time.

Local commodity prices — Cargill in Salina: wheat, $4.24; milo, $3.90; corn, $3.26; soybeans, $8.98. — Darcy Bradley
