Good Seeding Progress

We had a great week of seeding – overall we are just over 70% complete. All the wheat and Metcalf barley are in the ground, half the oats, 70% of the canola and we are just starting the 6-row barley. Soil conditions are still very good for planting – we are still able to get the seeds planted into moisture at normal seeding depths. Read More...

Seeding is Underway!

We got the cereals drill going last Monday and canola drill late Tuesday. Still can’t believe that we are seeding already – three weeks ago there was still alot of snow on the ground and the melt had barely even started! Conditions are optimal right now – usually when we start planting we are going into very wet ground, and it Read More...

Seeding is Approaching!

Well it has been quite the spring so far! The last week in April we still had very little snow melt, and it was looking like a very late start to seeding. Fast forward 10 days and we could be seeding earlier than we have in the past 5-6 years! Warm temperatures, strong winds and a little bit of rain has melted all the snow and dried the fields Read More...

Sad Day For Humboldt

As by now most have already heard of the tragic accident that occurred last Friday evening, April 6th, at 5pm. Our hometown hockey team, Humboldt Bronco’s, were on their way to Nipawin for game 5 of the SJHL semi-finals against the hawks. The bus they were travelling on collided with a semi, not that far from Nipawin.  As the news Read More...

Getting Plans in Place for Spring

Weather has warmed up the past few weeks – which is a welcome change from the cold a few weeks ago! Had two weather systems move through a few weeks ago that brought blizzard like conditions and dropped alot of snow. Should help in getting some mositure back into the topsoil, although will not help much for recharging our subsoil, since Read More...

Winter Continues…

Cold conditions continue to be the norm this winter. We have had warmer periods to break up the cold – but the cold keeps coming back. We have been moving some grain, but not as much as we hoped to be moving. Railways are slow to move the grain, which plugs up the grain terminals. In cold weather everything tends to slow down. This past Read More...

Happy Holidays!!

We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We are pleased that we get so many people viewing our website and commenting on the updates.  The weather has been mild the past few weeks – with temperatures hovering close to 0C for daytime highs, we are not used to that for this time of year! We took advantage of Read More...

Hauling Grain, More Fertilizer Deliveries

We had a great fall season once harvest was completed – over a month of good weather which allowed us to do a lot of field work. All fields were harrowed, we ran over all our cereal stubble with our Salford, as well as some canola stubble. We were able to get well over half done our drainage project, and we got all but 2 of our grain bags Read More...

Soybeans are done!

We finished the soybeans on October 2nd, and now we are officially complete #harvest17! The final yield was right around 35 bu/ac, which was a little disappointing, given how good they looked all season, but lack of rain starting mid July right through September really had an impact on filling, and they didn’t produce as well as what Read More...

Finished! Well, almost…

With some very late nights and early starts, we managed to get everyting off! **except the soybeans**** but we won’t count them right now. What a fantastic crew we have, I am always amazed how when a tight knit group of people get together with a common goal how everyone just makes it happen. We are very fortunate! The last few thousand Read More...
