(Photo by Richard Volesky) crop of crabapples from their front By Richard Volesky Editor/Reporter Crop yields in the area are turning out to be "good" or "really good," elevator man- agers say. The harvest has been slow, however, with some farmers reporting they have to wait until early afternoon to start up their combines due to damp, dewy mornings. Statewide, the North Dakota Department of Agriculture says the harvest is about three weeks or more behind the usual schedule. Hotter weath- er, plus wind this past week- end, seemed to put the har- vest into high gear as produc- ers took advantage of the weather. With winter wheat the first off.the fields, elevator man- agers were able to get a sense of the outcome of that crop, but the spring wheat harvest has been in its beginning stages in some areas. "I think it's a pretty good crop," said Paul Lautenschlager, manager of Beach Co-op Grain Co. Some of the quality is lower, having been bleached by rain, but it's still of mar- ketable quality, said Lautenschlager. Pulse crops and lentils that he's seen have come in with good yields and good quality, he said. Mark Baar, manager of SoUthwest Grain in Belfield, said winter wheat yields have been "really good" and in the 40 to 60 bushel per-acre range. Protein content has been average or low. Gary Howard, manager of the Golva Co-op Elevator, also reported yields in the 40 to 60 bushel range, while the protein figures have been good. Peas did well during the cooler summer, and he's heard of canola yields of 2,1300 pounds per acre. Wheat prices last year were in the $8 to $9 range, but prices now are under $4 to $4.50, said Lautenschlager. Such is the result of a decreased demand for exports, and an abundance of Harvest (Continued on Page 10) Agency: Bighorn population remains high MEDORA - North Dakota's "To help bolster the southern bighorn sheep population is in herds, this winter we. plan on excellent shape, according to Brett translocating sheep from the north- Wiedmann, big game biologist for ern population," Wiedmann said. the state Game and Fish "We will relocate some of the Department in Dickinson.
