Our PGR School went well, with about 40 people joining us. Recordings of our online events are posted here.
Seed treating and shipping has been steady over the past 2 weeks with the great weather. Unfortunately we did have 3 pivot corner arms collapse in the wind last week and some bin damage.

Feed Grains, Durum, Flax, & Peas selling well!
What to grow in 2021? New crop prices flax, peas, durum, and feed grains look very good and that means seed sales are very strong and supplies won't last long.
Cereals we have that sell into the feed market include:
SWGP AAC Awesome VB - GP soft wheat with top yields
SWSW AAC Paramount VB - SWSW with excellent yields
GP Wheat - KWS Alderon - GP red wheat with top yields
Barley 6 row feed / silage - AB Cattlelac
Barley 2 row feed - CDC Austenson
Triticale - Sunray
Need A Versatile Silage Option?
Sunray spring triticale had massive yields for us in 2020. At 148 bu per ac for field averages beating our soft wheat. This would translate into silage yield very well. In 2019 (drought year) it was grown on dryland and yielded about 40% more vs durum beside it. Triticale can tolerate tougher soil and drought conditions because of its more fibrous root system.
Clean Seed On Hand & Ready To Ship:
We have AAC Chrome & AAC Delhi Peas, FB 9-4, Fabelle & Snowbrid Faba Beans, Redberry & LeRoy VB HRS Wheat, Alloy & Succeed VB Durum & AB Cattlelac 6 Row Barley, AAC Awesome GP Soft Wheat, AAC Wheatland HRSW, CDC Dorado Yellow / Golden Flax & CDC Austenson 2 Row Barley, Bill Coors 100 Malt Barley, Sunray spring triticale, cleaned and ready to pickup. We are now cleaning AAC Marvelous Brown Flax and hope to have clean results back on the first week of February.
Next on the list is AAC Paramount VB soft wheat and then Esma 2 Row Barley.
