We aren't really hurting for moisture down in the bottomland. The corn we planted last Wednesday has already emerged, and it looks as if we'll have a good stand down there. The land around our dairy is a different story though. Our hayfields are green, but the bermudagrass isn't growing as quickly as it needs to due to a lack of water. The current forecast calls for a slight chance of thunderstorms Saturday through Monday, so hopefully three days of 30% equal a 90% chance we'll get at least one shower.
Regardless of if we use a no-till or minimal-till method to plant our forage sorghum, that job is also on hold until we get some rainfall. Our target date for planting had been mid-June, and that's still a possibility if we get any substantial rain within the next 10 days. We do have a fairly forgiving planting window on the sorghum, though, as we've planted it successfully as late as early July.
So until it rains, we'll tinker around in the shop, maybe spray a few pastures, and keep the cows as cool and comfortable as we possibly can as the heat creeps towards 100 degrees later this week.
