Dan Uetrecht, June 8

Things are going really well. The crop looks really good. I think we are one inch of rain away from having a perfect spring. We are a little dry and if we could just get a good soaker it would be perfect. Hopefully we’ll get it. We are supposed to …

We actually started up last Sunday. We got the planters in the field and got the kinks out. We hammered down ever since Monday. We planted almost 1,000 aces of corn and beans. They went in really well. One thing though, we are dry. We haven’t gotten rains and after …
