Fall Harvest Underway

Posted by Lucy

 
Fall Harvest Underway
Strong winds Monday had an adverse effect on the progress of fall harvest as some producers quit combining in the afternoon due to wind gusts around 45 mph. The southeasterly winds brought rain showers overnight that produced one-half to three-quarters of an inch around the county.
Last week, Wheat Growers elevator at Kennebec was dumping around 200 trucks a day bringing in milo, soybeans and some corn. Monday, the number of trucks was down, but manager Todd Longville was confident harvest would get back up to speed this week once producers can get back in the field.
Milo yields have been good as has the quality.
 “It’s going good so far,” said Longville.
Yields ranging from 80 to 120 bushels per acre have been reported. The test weight on milo has also been good with reports from 57 to 69 pounds.
“Surprisingly, we’ve taken in a lot of soybeans this year,” said Longville.
 He estimates about 700,000 bushels have been dumped at Kennebec so far. The soybeans are coming in from Lyman County but also Tripp, Mellette, Jones and Buffalo said Longville.
“This is the first year we’ve taken beans,” Longville said. “Sounds like the yields are pretty good.”
 Monday’s price for milo was up slightly at $2.54 per bushel, and soybeans were $8.75. The area around the Kennebec elevator is covered with long white bags filled with grain. Crews have been busy this fall filling grain bags with wheat. Longville estimates there is approximately 3.5 million bushels of wheat, mostly winter wheat, in the holding bags. Each bag, depending on the length can hold from 15,000 to 32,000 bushels.
 "There is some value in holding the wheat,” said Longville in response to why so many bushels are being stored.
When asked what crop Longville expects to move on the first grain train out of Kennebec, he stated soybeans. That’s surprising to Longville, as Lyman County has not been known in the past as a soybean producing area. He expects the first train to arrive in Kennebec in October.
Longville stated there are five grain cars on the circle track right now and the track/elevator is in the process of being tested and certified by federal grain inspectors before the first train can be loaded and moved.
 It’s a day Longville is looking forward to.

Lyman PF Chapter plans Banquet

Posted by Lucy

Members of the Lyman County Pheasants Forever Chapter will host the annual PF Banquet the second weekend of the season instead of opening weekend, Saturday, October 22.
According to committee members, they have received requests from local members and out-of-town hunters that they would like to see a change in the date of the banquet.
“We’ll try it and if it doesn’t work we can always go back to opening weekend,” said committee member Danielle Palmer who is assisting with promotion and sponsorship collections.
The sponsorship program has also been changed this year. Rather than asking for donations of cash or merchandise, the committee developed sponsorship levels, silver- $250; gold-$500; and platinum- $1,000.  Supporters who make a contribution at one of these levels will receive various Pheasants Forever clothing, knifes, prints or plaques in appreciation for their gift.
Sponsorship letters have been sent out and Danielle encourages anyone with questions to please contact her.
The banquet will be held in Kennebec with the Lyman Band serving the meal and members of the Kennebec fire department selling refreshments.  
Anyone interested in helping with the gun raffle boards or other games during the banquet may contact Palmer.  
“We always need help.  In exchange for working the banquet the local chapter will pay for helper’s meal and membership at the banquet,” said Palmer.  
Officers of the local PF Chapter include Cody Palmer and Craig Reuman
