Producer Progress Reports: Came Farms

  • Updated

Salina, Kan.

Harvest has arrived! We began cutting just this morning so I don’t have any yield data yet. We know our yields won’t be great, but we hope that harvest goes smoothly for everyone. There is a decent chance of rain for us tonight and again Wednesday so maybe this will just be a trial run for all the equipment. We did get some rain last week. It was pretty spotty but we got between .40 to .70 inches.

We finished getting the soybeans in and we are halfway done getting the full-season milo in. The sprayers have been running a lot doing the post-emerge on the soybeans, burn-down on the milo acres, and overlays for the milo. The shop has been busy getting all the harvest equipment ready and looking great.

The cattle are in the pastures and calving seems to be going well. Thistles seem to be under control for now. All of our thistle sprayers were needed for harvest.

We are grateful for the retired guys that come and help us during harvest and the others who take vacation from their full-time jobs to help us. We couldn’t get through harvest without their help. I also get a change of pace this time of year. I get to feed supper to all our help since they are putting in such long hours each day. It’s one of those traditions that we have tried to keep going. I get help from my mom, one of our neighbors, and Bill’s wife, Laurie.
