Northwest Iowa farmer done with silage

A northwest Iowa farmer wrapped up silage harvest last week.

Jolene Riessen of Ida Grove says she was impressed given how dry it’s been.

“There’s certainly a difference in hybrids, but I was actually pretty well pleased with what we harvested, and I’m sure my cattle will be too.”

She tells Brownfield her crops caught a late season shot of rain.

“Kind of really touch-and-go there sometimes, then I realize other parts of the state were not as fortunate as what we were.
