Rains have been timely for a Nebraska producer
An eastern Nebraska cattle feeder says he was concerned crops in his part of the state weren’t going to survive another drought-plagued growing season.
Buck Wehrbein tells Brownfield “Our wettest month is typically May, which was the driest on record, and now evidently, July has replaced may because we’ve had lots of rain.”
Wehrbein says the crops have benefitted. “It’s happened during pollination and setting of the ears and filling out the ears. We look really good in our area.”
He says rains have been spotty — but have fallen at critical times.
