This is the 3rd year in a row for us receiving very little rain, last year crop was OK, but very little rain through growing season. But this spring is a doozy, we haven't had any measurable moisture for over 2 months. Wht and barley came up but look spindly, my fall rye is done even if it rained a ton, and canola is turning into a disaster, just very poor germination. hay crops are screwed, and pastures are a wreck. Other than that I'm loving life, just sick of the uncontrollable expenses. Input costs and fuel are ridiculous, canola seed is a crime, along with a lot of other expenses that are driven by us farmers(land rent at $120 a acre)??? wth?? I consider myself a older farmer, and I know a lot of younger guys in my area take very little risk management because they haven't farmed through the drought years. A lot of younger guys don't carry crop insurance cause it doesn't cover there expenses, sorry but that's a mistake. It may not cover all your expenses, but it could get you through if need be. Oh well I've seen this before, so its not new to me, lock on your caps and lets hope it changes.
