Western Kansas—The month of June is over and we’re on to July already and I've got my blue header on again. I have dreamed of having 100-bushel wheat to harvest again this year but when I got out west on June 29 I quickly noticed...

Dodge City, Kansas—For the first few days of cutting in southern Kansas we were fighting green. The moisture on the loads went 13.3% to 15%.  The fields I’m cutting have big, full wheat heads.  It’s all making over 60 bushels per acre.  The test weights...

Weatherford, Oklahoma–We’ve been harvesting wheat averaging 40 and 50 bushels per acre. The test weight has been really good at 64 and 65 pounds per bushel. Then all at once to our surprise the test weight was 66.1 to 66.4 pounds per bushel and it...

South Dakota–We are caught back up to the harvest again. The wheat has been borderline ready.  We have cut nice wheat though that has been yielding 60 to 70 bushels per acre.  The test weight has been 62 to 63 pounds per bushel and the...

Western Kansas –I’ve seen western Kansas produce good wheat before but this year the wheat has got to be breaking records. Last year was a drought so it’s always interesting to see how Mother Nature can demonstrate such extremes with drought or plentiful moisture during...
