Harvest shaping up as a good year for local Farmers in 2010

The harvest for 2010 is shaping up to be a very good one for area farmers. According to Oliver County Extension Agent Rick Schmidt, rainfall was more than adequate, the temperatures weren’t scorching and the hail stayed away from most parts of the county.

"It’s been an outstanding year price and production-wise for all segments of the agriculture industry," Schmidt said. "Cattle, hay and crops are having a great year."
