Wall, SD. No hay! Winter wheat only yielding 20-35 bushel. Most of it was hayed. Pastures are mostly gone as there was very little grass grown this year! No measurable rain in several weeks. With a several inch moisture deficit from last fall, and a 4" deficit now, we are almost a year's worth of rainfall behind! From Pennington County, South Dakota, on July 11, 2017
