A Kansas Farm Mom
05/29/2019

A Kansas Farm Mom

All the rain and flooding has most of the farmers in the area (well really in several states) stressed beyond any measure. I am going to try to break it all down for you.

Corn. The corn in our area mostly had been planted. There are friends to the north that have never had a chance to plant corn at all. We spent one dry day putting more fertilizer to the corn, so it could grow and now it is under water. I've lost count how many times some of our fields have went under water. To say that the corn plants are as stressed as we are as farmers would be an understatement. We have passed the optimum time to plant corn or even replant it when the floods finally recede. We have not only lost the cost of the seed, but also fertilizer and herbicides.

Soybeans. Our soybean seeds are still in the barns waiting to be planted. Usually, we would have at least half of our soybeans planted by the first of June. We still have until the end of June to plant soybeans if we can get some dry weather. Our chance for the best yield potential is declining with each day we aren't in the fields.

Wheat. Wheat harvest is close at hand. Much of our wheat has been under flood waters and is a loss. Rain on wheat that wasn't flooded this close to maturity greatly decreases its quality.

Many farmers practice forward contracts. We watch the grain markets throughout the year. When prices get to a level we can make a profit, we agree to deliver a certain number of bushels, in a designated month to a determined location. If we cannot deliver the grain that we have promised, we must "buy out the contract" meaning we have to give the buyer money in the amount that we promised we would deliver. Instead of getting paid, we are paying them and receive nothing in return. In 2007, this sent many farmers into bankruptcy.

Yes, we have crop insurance, but it is not a replacement for a crop. We can't insure 100% of the crop nor could we afford to do that. When we have low yields, they go into our yield history. Our crop insurance coverage is based on our yields for at least the past 10 years. We had just got the 2007 and 2008 flood affected yields off the average.

Cattle. Many of us have struggled all Spring to find enough dry days to get the calves vaccinated or to get cows moved to the pastures they need to be in for the summer. Even in the Flint Hills everyone is struggling to get things done and now the flash flooding requires a couple hours after each event to make sure the fences were not washed out.

There are many more factors weighing on us. If you see a farmer, give them an extra smile, ask how they are doing. There isn't a lot anyone can do for us right now.

If you have been following along on our trip to Wyoming to deliver bulls - here is how it ended.

Got home about 11:30 last night because we had to replace the alternator in the truck. Once again, not good luck....except it died right at the parts store and it wasn’t cold or snowy. Jay got it fixed and away we went.
Shout out to the parts manager from O’Reillys. He was a rock star and even helped after they closed. Thank you Kyle!!!!!

Thank you Duel County Nebraska for letting us use your fairgrounds for the afternoon and the night. Thank you Sandpoint Angus for letting us use your sale barn (although you didn’t really know). The cattle were safe, fed and sheltered in the barn and we were warm in the Dodge all night. Headed west again to deliver bulls to Wyoming. See ya soon (hopefully) Dad!!
