We had our Rye School, and it was great! Becca presented by phone and about 30 people attended and learned how to grow hybrid rye.
Crops look fairly good and we are shipping out or bagging up some left over seed as well as getting winter crops re-tested and moved into treating position.
We have had some Jumbo size yellow peas pricing $8+ per bu in our yard, I think there is some opportunity for next season with the large size peas as well as in yellow & brown flax.
Would you like Greg to stop by your field you bought from us this season? We would be happy to put up a sign, visit, offer some insights. Let us know!
We are co-hosting this event on Friday! Come and join us at one of the 2 sessions to hear some great topics for learning on the Thanks For Farmer Tour.
Here are the details:
For all the hard work that you do, Thunderstruck Ag Equipment wants to thank you with food, beer, and a celebration just for you. With the help of our sponsors, Buhler Versatile Ltd., FCC, FMC, and SeedNet, we’ve put together the THANKS FOR FARMING TOUR that includes 9 events that will run across Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta during the months of June and July. Along with saying thank you, we also want to support the communities you live in by using local venues, rentals, food, and beverage providers as the suppliers for these events. We will also be making a financial donation to your local 4H chapters to continue to support the Ag industry.
Plus, you’ll also get a chance to check out products from Ag industry exhibitors. Here is the current list of exhibitors who will be participating in the tour and we are working hard to bring even more on board.
WHEN: July 17, 2020 WHERE: Stamp Seeds #9 Centre Street, Enchant, AB
TIMES: Choose one of the following times: 11:00 am – 3:00 pm OR 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

As these are different times and the health and safety of the attendees and exhibitors of these events is of the utmost importance to us, these events will adhere to each province’s COVID-19 regulations. This includes a limit on the number of people at each session and scheduled times for cleaning and sanitizing
Notes from Greg:
On a crops note, fungicides are happening but not for specific issues just FHB timing and peas. Faba beans look clean and will be done later in the month. Irrigation is slow due to some great rains, we do have some forage oats on hand if you need and silage customers are sending in great yields, We had one customer with huge 14 mt dryland S AB silage yields with KWS Propower hybrid fall rye!
