Update for June 1st, 2009

Good news this week from this part of the corn belt. The heavy rains of the past few weeks have finally subsided and left a window of opportunity for grain producers. I believe that every corn planter in the area has been running this week. Thankfully the acres planted is multiplying quickly. Hopefully we can keep grain prices at or below forecasts for the season. The last thing that we need with low milk prices are higher feed bills.

Hopefully I can stretch this window of dryness open just a little longer and get some hay baled this afternoon. Speaking of forages, be sure to take a moment and listen to Dr. Limin Kung’s Tips for Silage Success. Limin provides some excellent advice.
