Farmers still trying to catch up to last year's pace

The drier weather has helped, but you will still see some local farmers trying to play catch up.

 

The United States Department of Agriculture reported just over six days of suitable fieldwork over the last week. Despite the cool temperatures, the lack of rain helped farmers close the gap between where they would like to be on their corn silage and soybean harvest. Statewide, the corn silage harvest is 59 percent complete, about 12 days behind last year’s pace and five days behind the five-year average. The soybean harvest is a little less behind schedule. At 11 percent complete, it is six days behind last year and three days behind the average.

 

Brey Cycle Farm's Tony Brey says he is thankful for the drier weather for the sake of the farmers and the motorists that drive on the roads near the harvested fields.

While rain is not in the forecast until Tuesday night, Door and Kewaunee counties are two of several Wisconsin counties under a freeze warning on Saturday from 1 a.m. to 8 a.m.
