While many farmers are wary of having rain in the forecast, the Washburn area would welcome the moisture. “We kind of missed that rain over the (Memorial Day) weekend so most people would take an inch of rain here,” said Clark Price. Price who leads River Ag and operates a Pioneer seed agency, said everything was put into good moisture and crop emergence is a positive story. After the drought last year, the green grass is also a positive sight. “We needed this break or we wouldn’t have any cows out west anymore because the hay yards were empty and the pastures really needed to recover.” RRFN’s YouTube channel has the full interview.
