Cotton harvesting was almost complete. What wheat has been planted was emerging with favorable weather. Much of the annual grazing plantings were complete and emerged.
Belinda Woods, Cullman County
It was a great week for harvesting soybeans and cotton. Conditions were favorable to plant, sow, and drill winter wheat and grasses. The county received around half an inch of rain which hampered productivity on one day.
Henry Dorough, Talladega County
While light rainfall did little to hamper crop harvesting on upland fields, low lying areas are still too wet to harvest. Annual cool-season pastures were growing nicely but will not provide sustainable grazing for a couple of months. Heavy frost on several mornings made the few warm-season pastures that remained go dormant, ensuring the need to continue providing hay and other supplements to livestock.
