Combines out already
An earlier start to the growing season has some farmers already combining small grains.
Nate Tallackson said he started cutting a couple hundred acres of winter wheat northwest of Grafton, N.D., on Tuesday afternoon.
"This is the first time ever we planted winter wheat," Tallackson said. "Perfect year for it. Nice snow cover. I think we're running over 80 bushels, pretty good weight, protein's a little low."
