State’s fall harvest near completion

For the week ending Nov. 17, 2013, dry conditions and above normal temperatures across much of the state allowed fall harvest to move toward completion, according to USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Grain moisture levels are still high in remaining northeastern fields, slowing final wrap up. Producer attention is now turning to fall tillage and fertilizer applications. Cattle continue to utilize stalks and weaned calves were being moved to lots or market.
