Dry conditions a concern in Minnesota

Dry, warm conditions have some farmers in Minnesota on edge.

The USDA says February was warm and dry for most of the state, leaving forage crops open to potential winterkill and potentially impacting spring planting.

Even with that dry weather for much of the month, feedlots and pastures remain muddy, but there were only scattered reports of livestock health issues.

The warm, dry weather has allowed some farmers to start field work, while maple sap is running a month earlier than normal.

The USDA’s weekly crop progress and condition reports resume in April.
