Linton, North Dakota farmer and North Dakota Grain Growers Association President Tom Bernhardt was on the spring wheat tour this week. His spring wheat is finished. “Spring wheat was pushed along with the heat and lack of moisture. Our other crops look pretty good, but pastures aren’t good at all.” Bernhardt says there has already been some baling of the wheat crop. “In Emmons County, there’s been lots of spring wheat acres rolled up for feed. Some acres are going to be abandoned, it’s that short, and others are trying to go out with sickle mowers and tried to cut them and rake. I looked at some of the bales and it looks poor quality. I think they’ll add liquid protein supplement to some of that and make it work for feed.”
