    Would they crop the ground every other year in the dry areas ?

    We have some wheat here but are on the other end of the scale at 50" rain per year . Really wetter then wheat likes .

    Yep, alternating crops every other year. 6000 acres is only 3000 per year.

    Most all of the ground around here is no-till drilled, not very many burn the stubble anymore. They cut it high and have swathers follow then bale it, most of the straw will go to
    Starbuck where they built a straw pulp mill.

    Speaking of Wheat... My other half found this at the local farmers market yesterday. I've been looking for it for a few years, It's good stuff, I've made it with everything from beef to seal meat. Really.

    Did your dad work for the Nehls? Ken Nehl and Earl Borden are good friends. I got this from a good friend that knows everybody down there.

    Not as far as I know. Worked for Shaws, Schabs, Rollingers and Austins among others in/around town. He headed up here for College after high school in '71. Property owners up top were Fred and Delores Millimans and Archie Borden.
