Calving season going well for northern Minnesota farmer

Calving season is going well on a farm in northern Minnesota.

Shayne Isane and his family raise around 300 head of cattle in Roseau County.  He says early spring weather has been mostly favorable.

“Actually, with the lack of snow we started today moving some cattle out to pasture (and) out to drier ground. So that’s been welcome to be able to do that early this year, where in some years with a lot of snow we’re not able to do that. So for the most part, very good luck so far.”

Isane also grows corn, soybeans, and small grains and tells Brownfield subsoil moisture is somewhat depleted.

“So right along we’re going to need rain. Right now sitting okay, but a touch on the dry side.”

He says planting is probably a couple weeks out yet as growers in the region fear a killing frost as crops emerge.
