A western Wisconsin farmer says crops look good considering their very dry start.  Tom Gillis tells Brownfield, “I think we caught a few rains just at the right time.”

Gillis raises about 13 hundred acres of corn and soybeans northeast of River Falls, Wisconsin on a mixture of irrigated and non-irrigated land.  He says June was very dry, but there were three rain events around the 4th of July, more rain in mid-July, and just over an inch of rain at the end of the month.
