Pastures are green but still short. Having to move the cows on a faster rotation. Not a lot of height to the grass. Ponds are still low. I am concerned about running out of water this summer. Corn and soybeans have sprouted with the rains we had last week. There are no mud puddles after the rain. It is all soaking in. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #New London 1.5 SW on 5/13/2018
