Wheat crop coming off

Farmers are starting to keep members of the Rio Creek Feed Mill team busy with their wheat crop. According to the USDA, about nine percent of the wheat planted for grain in Wisconsin has been harvested. The good summer weather has been welcomed by farmers that were plagued by wet fields and cooler temperatures last year. Rio Creek Feed Mill agronomist Adam Barta says the wheat is coming in, but knows it will be a small crop.

Rio Creek Feed Mill is offering premiums for farmers that reach certain quality levels. Barta says many farmers in the area opted to grow oats this year, which are usually two weeks behind wheat fields.
