Delayed corn and soybean planting could impact dairy and beef production

A cold, wet spring could affect dairy and beef production as farmers in Door and Kewaunee Counties wait and see what their yields will be for feed crops.  Corn and soybean planting was delayed because of soggy fields.  Annie Deutsch, with the UW-Madison Division of Extension Door County, says while field conditions have recently improved farmers find themselves making adjustments for future livestock feed requirements.



Deutsch says the Peninsular Agriculture Research Station in Sturgeon Bay has planted some test plots with crops to see which might do the best should another cold, wet spring be in store for the future.
