Drought was reality for farmers and ranchers across North Dakota this past year. However, Cogswell, North Dakota farmer Kevin Throener is pleased with the performance of his crop. “Everytime we would get dry in my little world we could catch a half-inch of rain and keep the crop hanging on. It was a decent crop, not a bin-buster by any means, but, we were blessed compared to many others in the state.” Throener’s farm received about 12 inches of rain since August. “It all came in nice little shots of rain, no big downpours.” Throener is a member of the CHS board of directors and is participating in the co-op’s annual meeting in Minneapolis.
