Prairie farmers are harvesting their biggest ever crop and yields are higher than many local grain growers can recall.
This year’s harvest is so large some farmers — and at least one local elevator company — have had to dump grain on the ground because their bins are bursting. Others are tucking grain inside sheds not normally used for crop storage.
Grain growers and agricultural experts interviewed Friday used terms such as “fantastic,” “incredible,” “phenomenal,” “exceptional,” and “best crop in a lifetime” to describe the size of this year’s harvest.
Dampening their enthusiasm is the fact that with prices tumbling, many may not make any more money than they did last year.
So, what’s with the grain scare and prices going to soar etc.? The utter bstds.
