December Crop Conditions

Word was received earlier this morning (Monday), from "Tall" Todd, one of the custom cutter guys who comes up here to the Golden Triangle every season. Todd says that he visited with producers in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, & Colorado & that the conditions are DRY!

Ken Adderholt said, in Vernon/Harrold Texas, that the winter wheat is up, but there's been no moisture since they planted it & if they turn livestock in the cattle pull the wheat up by the roots, when they graze it.
