Cattle and roads

Growing up in southern Wisconsin, I can remember seeing a number of yellow Cattle Crossing signs here and there along the roadways. Over the years, the number of farms raising pastured cattle has decreased considerably; however, in the past couple of years there has been a renewed interest in pasture raised beef. This has meant that more cattle producers are rebuilding fences and moving cattle from field to field rather than mechanically harvesting these fields for feed. At times these pastures are on opposite sides of the road, which means the farmer must occasionally move the cattle across a roadway.

Corn stalk problems

The weather this year in our area was overall quite favorable to corn growth early in the season. About the time of pollination, we entered a period where there was a definite moisture shortage, which pretty well paralleled the grain filling period for the corn plant.

Preventing combine and tractor fires

Combine and tractor fires cause over $20 million in property losses each year and millions more because of lost time and downed crops during the busy harvest season. Fires not only cause huge losses and waste time, they also cause 40 or 50 serious injuries each year, and occasionally a person is killed because of a farm machinery fire. Prevention and preparation are two keys to preventing serious machinery or life loss.

Grain markets going down

Current production estimates for corn and soybeans have been increased with the last projection by the US Department of Agriculture. The markets were increasing for a short period of time but now have been slowly working their way back down.

New rules allow passing in no passing zones

The fall season means picking pumpkins and apples or checking out the fall colors. It also is a time for slow moving farm equipment on the roads as fall harvest season is underway throughout the state. That means it’s time for all drivers to be especially aware and slow down when encountering slow moving farm equipment.

Successful Winter Wheat Production

Including winter wheat in a farm cropping rotation is an option more grain producers are looking at. University research has shown that corn and soybean yields will increase when wheat is included in the crop rotation. Seed selection should be certified seed that has been germination tested.
