East Central Iowa: areas around me received between .5 and 3 inches of rain Thursday evening. Some guys were able to get back to planting Sunday evening, with most going again today(Monday). Almost everyone seems to not be looking at the calendar. Most don’t want to take a chance of mudding it in, only to have the rain start missing them and then having a mess the rest of the year. The hay really took off the last 10 days, taking advantage of the warm spells that were in between the cold periods. Now it will be fun trying to get dairy quality hay made in the next 7-10 days and try and plant at the same time.
