Due to delayed harvest, two November Grain Marketing Workshops have been cancelled and are expected to be rescheduled for January. The workshops were to be held Tuesday, Nov. 14, at Wayne and Wednesday, Nov. 15 at O'Neill.
Tyler Williams, Extension Educator in Lancaster County: Harvest is rapidly progressing with most of the soybeans out and about 70% of the corn out. Corn yields have been very good and soybean yield reports have been fairly average. I haven't seen much movement of anhydrous applicators or fieldwork, but that should get rolling any day.

Five teams of talented youth crop scouts recently vied for the state title. Congratulations to all who tested their skills and good luck to the Colfax County 4-H and Kornhusker Kids 4-H Club of Cuming County who will move on to regionals.
