UPDATED JUNE 11 8pm... NO UPDATES June 12

The "PDF" document listed here is information from field observations and lab tests we have so far from June 10. We may get a couple more reports on Wednesday and I will aim to update the PDF posted here later in the day on Wednesday. I will note the UPDATE time.

The weather clearly drives decisions now. Even where we are beyond some of the quality goals on some farms, It still all counts in a market or feedbunk. There are a couple of notes related to that at the end of the report.

For more information about using and interpreting information from alfalfa scissors-cut sampling or in using PEAQ sticks, go to:

LATE AND PREVENTED PLANTING: Check other news items posted here for links to a wider variety of information about late and prevented planting issues. Corn silage is still the best forage option for any of the corn silage that people still need to plant for the coming year.
