Week 4: Lisa Lunz, Wakefield

Here’s an update from southern Dixon County with farmer Lisa Lunz. She has some great information comparing the last drought year in 2012 with this year’s drought, looking at rainfall and expected yields. Lisa says they had to wait for stems to dry down, and soybeans are coming off very dry. Corn harvest is still 10-14 days away.

This week we travel to Antelope County and visit with a past president of the NE Soybean Association. Robert says the soybean harvest is just getting started in his area… dryland yields are highly variable, but he expects more consistency as he gets into irrigated acres. Robert says the corn silage harvest was off about 5 tons/acre this year. Also, dry corn harvest could be 3-4 weeks away yet.

Silage cutting has come and gone already for this Cuming County dairy operator. Mike provides a glimpse into a busy growing season. Thankfully there’s been enough rain to have adequate energy content in the silage this year. Mike also previews the harvest… not much wet corn this year, so that means waiting for soybeans and corn harvest to start.
