We have 850 acres in. It was likely only possible with a heavy four track tractor, high flotation disc drill and a four track air cart. We need a few hours of sunshine to get going again. So far we haven’t had the tractor stuck but had to pull the seed truck into position twice.

0.2" in the last 2 rains, maybe 0.4" in the last wet snow. Too bad we caan't average out, I've been too wet before and it isn't fun when grain farming. With grass and cattle I would be smiling.

Neighbour was planting corn on Saturday. Started on a higher ridge and worked his way to the sides. Managed to get er done. Headlands don’t look bad either but corn requires less heavy equipment.wouldn’t like to have been dragging a disc drill thru the low spots.

From too much rain?
Yeah rain and the snow storms in april. Colorado low each week for the last 5 weeks. Flooding/washed out roads and crossings. Cows calving in standing water, calves getting cold/sick and dying, guys feeding green canola silage because they have nothing else and the nitrates taking out the young/old cows etc.

We have pretty rolly land, cows can still find a low, wet spot to have their calves. 10 feet from a good bedding pack. :rolleyes:

As they say: " If you don't have them, you won't lose them"

2.5" in May, was never dry enough before, with 3' of snow and cold slow melt. 1.5+" forecast May 13-14, ZERO happening before May 20 if this comes to pass. Just like that NO drought here, a 180 degree opposite of 2021. Seeding was finished May 17, super dry dusty.
