“We are preparing for wheat harvest in the southeast corner of Wyoming. Last year drought and hail ruined most of the crops which led to lots of wheat being drilled last fall. Stands are good everywhere and there should be abundant ground cover following the harvest. One land conservation project Lerwick Hay Company implemented last year was filling in washouts throughout the fields. This “terrace” effect has and will continue to reduce water erosion. There are a few big washouts in the home pasture that will be filled this fall and seed with grass.”
