  • Amanda De Oliveira Silva, OSU Extension small grains specialist, discusses wheat planting for both grain-only and pasture. She also analyzes protein data from her variety trials. 
  • Wes Lee, OSU Extension Mesonet agricultural coordinator, says the recent rainfall will help with wheat planting. State climatologist Gary McManus predicts slightly warmer weather is around the corner.

  • Derrell Peel, OSU Extension livestock marketing specialist, says the cattle market should remain strong into the fall.
