For both farmers and ranchers it has been a battle this year. Shayne Isane of Badger, Minnesota says the challenges started at wheat harvest and haven’t stopped. “Managing both the crops and cattle is like a stuck record. We struggled with the silage and putting up high quality hay, but I do believe we’ll be okay on feed supplies. We feed a fair amount of beet pulp, so we’ll have to see how that supply is.” On a brighter note, Isane was able to wean calves last week. That’s due to the freezing temperatures which is firming up the ground. “That’s a good accomplishment.” Hear the story.
