No moisture this week. Soybeans and corn being harvested.

Harvest is in full swing this week as much of the crop is down to about 20% moisture while some is below. Producers concentrated on soybeans this week and harvest of beans is progressing rapidly. Yields of both corn and beans have been highly variable with some outstanding yields and some major disappointments. Does not appear to be a bumper crop of either. Cow-calf producers have run out of pasture and are anxious to get cattle to stalk fields. There is much higher competition for stalks this year and higher prices being paid.

Reports of stalk rot or weak stalks being reported.

Recent fires and drought have caused serious conditions for livestock, and producers are being forced to sell down beyond normal.

Dry conditions continue. Harvest is progressing rapidly with several producers finishing up on dryland corn harvest and moving toward soybean harvest.

Producers are jumping back and forth between harvesting corn and beans. They are concerned with soybeans popping out prior to harvest. Fourth cutting of alfalfa is very short.

Need rain.
