@  vhaby : (22 April 2017 - 10:37 PM) The weather window that I thought we were going to have for making first cutting alfalfa has disappeared. It rained today, Saturday, and there now is a 60% chance for rain on Wednesday. Just not enough dry days for curing alfalfa for making hay.
@  Vol : (22 April 2017 - 06:50 PM) Been getting another good rain this evening.....but I will pass on the deluge that TJ had.
@  labdwakin : (22 April 2017 - 02:19 PM) good soaking rain here last 2 days... around 3 3/4 inches... need it to dry up for a while so I can haul dirt... got customers stacked up
@  TJH : (22 April 2017 - 11:07 AM) Wish you would of got some of what we got Vol, 5.5" in 19 hours. It is wet here, can barely walk across the yard.
@  Vol : (22 April 2017 - 09:51 AM) Received a nice gentle .51" of rain last night....more coming today.
@  Weperkins : (22 April 2017 - 07:15 AM) khun 440 hay tedder
@  PaMike : (21 April 2017 - 08:26 PM) I think I am going to hit my rye end of next week. We got some rain today so it should push up the next few days...
@  FarmerCline : (21 April 2017 - 08:26 PM) Endrow, yep my barley started showing heads about 3 weeks ago and was fully headed out about 2 weeks ago. Winter oats are just starting to head out now.
@  endrow : (21 April 2017 - 06:44 PM) Glad I got some corn planted yesterday before this next batch of rain head. My son said there were no available tractors as they were mowing rye and Hauling manure. I hook my old IH 784 to the 6 row planter anyway I went. Brought back memories
@  paoutdoorsman : (21 April 2017 - 04:15 PM) You have barley in head endrow? We're not that far along around here.
@  endrow : (21 April 2017 - 02:59 PM) Barley is just starting to go into head here and I'll bet Farmer Cline has had barley and head for about 2-3 weeks
@  mlappin : (21 April 2017 - 01:29 PM) Just can’t catch a break, took all day to get over 45, now thats its almost warm enough to spray, the winds back.
@  mlappin : (21 April 2017 - 12:17 PM) Not a problem here, we need the soakers to quit for awhile
@  Vol : (21 April 2017 - 08:40 AM) Might get a good dose of precipitation this weekend.....its been awhile since we had a soaker.
@  Shetland She... : (21 April 2017 - 07:19 AM) 44º and light rain here in srn NH. Today should see continuing rain with a high in upper 40s.
@  mlappin : (21 April 2017 - 07:18 AM) Yeah, relit the wood boiler last night
@  swmnhay : (21 April 2017 - 07:15 AM) 35 degrees this morning,brrr.
@  endrow : (21 April 2017 - 05:50 AM) Rain pretty good overnight we have some rye cut and getting washed. We may use it for straw instead of forage we will see
@  vtlpluyr : (20 April 2017 - 10:40 PM) @vhaby - snow really just cleared at my farm. You all sound like you're in the tropics to me:-)
@  BWfarms : (20 April 2017 - 05:56 PM) Not sure why I'm thunder chicken hunting in 80 degrees with a Ghillie suit on.
