Today is Thursday and now the Real Friday Crop Report on a Thursday!

SASKFARMER's Avatar Apr 28, 2021 | 07:01 1 It's such a cold start to the morning it's not even funny. Bone-chilling cold from the north coming down. I doubt any meaningful moisture will happen but eyes are crossed as I cross over from a guy who hated rain to one who wants his rain back. I'm sorry for cursing the mud and rain and more rain. I really am sorry.

I have made my peace with the Rain and welcome it back.

Now our area had the snowstorm a week ago that gave us a total of 2/10 of rain so far this growing season. It was welcomed but really a lot blew into fence lines ditches and bushes but we did have about 6 in in the stubble.

Most farmers are winding up Seed cleaning and lots have ordered new varieties as we have for the 2021 growing season. We usually take new wheat Varieties and run with it, I have had lots of duds till AAC Brandon but putting all my faith in AAC Starbuck for 2021. We have 320 acres coming plus our own AAC Alida that we purchased last year and followed up with still some AAC Brandon.

The barley we are retiring Copland for good and switching all acres to AAC Connect with a Contract and if it doesn't make malt its Feed at a locked in price. So we're rolling the dice.

On the Canola front, we have a combination but they are all Liberty varieties as the RR are a ****ing weed. Our Pioneer 505 and 506 usually hit top yield with these followed by Invigor L352 L345 with a few older also then finally Dekalb.

The last of the blends in Fertilizer has arrived plus chemicals and seed treatments etc.

Rents are locked in and up on a couple of sections but when land is in tight you pay and move on. Looking still for a Section to get my two young sons into the game. But that isn't easy in our area.

One guy started seeding yesterday but he is an Alberta Transplant. AT home they are seeding so may as well here. Cold snap going to happen the week of the 10th so hold on skippy there is lots of time. The ground was still cold yesterday every place I shoved the probe. From a strip of SMF around the yard to thick barley stubble and even worked stubble. Canola was worse yet so were probably waiting till Monday. Never start on a Friday even if your ready. Just an old rule at our place.

Land clean-up is happening with discing low areas and breaking and stone picking.

South of the valley, I expect guys will be going today. Big guy at Indian head was going since last week.

Prices were so great then last night hit and for no reason other than its end of the month end of contracts, the price dropped like a stone. No moisture in sight for the USA, crop ratings were down on what was growing, and in Canada, the trade wanted 23 mil plus acres canola and they got 21.5, not a jump they wanted. Buyers left as they believe more will be added. Yea no one changes seeding plans May 1 in a big way maybe a section here or there but not thousands of acres.

The ground has enough moisture in our area to get the crop started but the layer below the root zone is out of gas. So a good three-day slow soaker would help out a lot and that doesn't look like its in the cards.

The above shows what western Canadian farmers have done for the Environment yet our useless ****ing fool in Ottawa says were bad and we need to do more mean while the East has done **** all yet were the bad ones it's a ****ing joke.

Sort of like the Minister of Environment the slimy shit who came from Sask NDP his wife holds a large amount of Enbridge Shares but he hates oil and gas. Liberals do as I say not as I do.

This mindless fool is pushing this whole Carbon thing and he is the evil that won't let Saskatchewan farmers get what's rightly theirs. We have done our part maybe it's time the ****ing East did theirs instead of us paying for their ****ups.

Oh on the Sask side it makes me sick every night when Crying Ryan comes on TV and is Pushing Moe to Go bug the Drs and Nurses and dying patients with a news crew to see the ICU units. Come on Crying Ryan this is all about politics and you trying to gain in the polls. Your a sick little man.

MAybe crying Ryan should go visit his voters in the hood and do a sleepover for a week or two. Sick NDP and Unions I thought they all left but no the opportunists are still hurting Sask.

Ah, that feels better, I need a fishing boat to go north this summer as the pontoon will not float at the lake as it is so low we can't get it off the trailer. Yea that's how dry and no runoff this spring up north.

Be safe have a fun spring seeding and remember Plant in Dust the Bins will bust. ( Except 1988 and 1961 and 1930 for all the CLimate fools we have dry spells this isn't climate change).

    Ready to roll on peas and wheat.





    Ground yesterday at 3



    Ground in gravel pit is froze solid at 2 ft down. Digging the spring area a little deeper. This water we use on our garden.



    Our pit for spraying is now full. The last Snow did the trick. Reply With Quote
    Apr 28, 2021 | 07:14 3 My days are all mixed up ... everyday seems the same. Today I know is Wed because I’m taking my 5th wheel trailer to the dealer to get some warranty work done, and I planned on starting to seed Thursday which I believe comes after Wed.

    So why the report this morning?

    Keep up the good reports saskfamer ...always enjoy the read ...its not cut and paste...your own words are more interesting. Reply With Quote

  • SASKFARMER's Avatar Apr 28, 2021 | 07:30 8 Hey, Chuck if farmers would have listened to me on the crop report last year they would be swimming in money. I was the only one in Western Canada that said hot and dry and no moisture will not create a huge canola crop or wheat in Western Canada. What have you provided but cut and paste bullshit?




    F U C K O F F C H U C K!





    Yes, I got my days mixed up because we're on the Covid one day is the same as the next cycle for well over a year.

    The crop report is early because I'm busy tomorrow. Reply With Quote

  • SASKFARMER's Avatar Apr 28, 2021 | 07:33 9 Fun with numbers and Days. Yea this Alzheimers is getting worse. Or is it just Covid or Groundhog day over and over and over.

    Yes one guy was spraying yesterday for the life of me nothing is growing and you're just putting hours on a sprayer but for some, we just got to go.

    So go. Reply With Quote

    " From the beginning " " every step of the way" " we have been there for Canadians"

    Repeat that to every question ever asked with zero substance between the phrases.

    My wife and I were going to start a drinking game on those phrases but realize we would be in AA within a week. Reply With Quote

    We have lost more farmers because of Chuck than anything ever posted here. Its about farming not LA LA LA Dream world Chuck lives in. Reply With Quote
    SASKFARMER's Avatar Apr 28, 2021 | 07:40 13 Our sprayer doesn't fire up till the Early seeded crop is just about poking out or wheat is on the first leaf still curled and I will spray round up because other stuff is growing then. Today nothing is really growing so park the sprayer and enjoy the day.

    Have a snickers bar I hear they work. Reply With Quote

    Correction caseih, that should read, the guy that beats the dead horse all morning long. Since he only works the morning shift.

    Oh well not much will change till tomorrow as it’s cold here and snowed on some of our land and south closer to the valley had more.

    Stuck one last day cleaning peas.

    Markets down at almost noon after a jump again Reply With Quote

  • SASKFARMER's Avatar Apr 28, 2021 | 12:29 29 Monday will be all out seeding.

    Guys our way are slowing down and one note this spring of you have to reseed canola some varieties might not be available like other years to get and reseed.

    Just a heads up if your going early Reply With Quote
    SASKFARMER's Avatar Apr 29, 2021 | 05:50 30 Well, we shot our load a day early on the crop report so here is the crop report on a Thursday.

    Mallee has started seeding in Australia. Thanks to Chuck he is off the site like so many others but wanted to still let you know he is doing fine and seeding has begun.

    Seeding as I said is slower on the east side but guys are starting a little more each day. Yesterday night one of our BTOs started up another has been going for a full week. This Guy will be really rolling tomorrow or Saturday but not really that gung ho.

    Oh my god, great news we're in the green, and no it's not Deere's new equipment.

    The neighbor has water trouble but it's his pump for the cattle and he is hauling water every day. The pump should be fixed soon, it's a deep well.

    Cattle are moving out but still getting a bale or two a day. Lots had a good supply of hay leftover from last summer but so far the pasture conditions are not very good.

    We all are praying for a good three-day rain. Yesterday was more of a bust than anything else with just some of our farm getting snow.

    We are done cleaning seed and now getting the last equipment ready before the big show begins. Kids are home next week so we have a full workforce to roll. Labour is a tough one because if you have a good man pay him more and keep him. If it's a guy who thinks he is worth 30 yet his skills are for min wage let him go.

    Happy with the Railway purchase south, this means we could have grain moving south instead of east or west on the same railway. Strikes not an issue and politics maybe also not an issue.

    All grains moving this morning up that's a good thing if you still have Wheat and Barley and Canola.

    Take care, work safe and enjoy the wide-open clean Western Canada air that the East says we are the problem. Reply With Quote
