Haying season

Three tractors pulling balers turn cut hay into round bales near Firesteel. Hay is being cut in the area as it is needed even if it’s not abundant. Between dry weather and late frosts, it’s certainly not a bumper crop. Some hay will be grazed rather than cut and some wheat may be hayed, as the crop fields are struggling and hay is becoming scarce for some producers.

Recent rainfall may give hope for some forage feed that’s been planted, but more rain is needed as ranchers and farmers face tough decisions

Conditions beginning to spell drought

By Kathy Nelson

Last winter’s snowfall was not enough to head off a dry spring when rains did not come. The National Drought Monitor now has north central South Dakota as extremely dry. The conditions have producers scrambling to make changes. Ruth Beck,

SDSU Agronomy Field Specialist at Pierre, said, “I have been in contact with some people from Dewey and Corson. They are telling me it’s very dry. Winter wheat is being hayed and the only alfalfa they will cut is in low wet areas. They are saying the grass is also very thin.” “It does not look good for the spring wheat and oats if we do not get a change very soon,” Beck said. “The very early heat has certainly been a contributing factor.”
