Cool and wet weather slows Wisconsin fieldwork

Spring weather continued to slow Wisconsin’s farmers down last week. 

USDA reporters say up to a foot of new snow fell in northern Wisconsin and the rest of the state had a mixture of flurries and rain.  Rainfall ranged from around two-tenths of an inch in western Wisconsin to nearly 3 inches near Superior and north of Green Bay.  About the only field activity reported last week was some manure spreading.

Wisconsin’s winter wheat is rated 58% good to excellent, down slightly from a week ago.

USDA says just one percent of the oats have been planted.

Pasture conditions are down slightly from last week, with 37% in good to excellent shape.
