The 2012 Season was another prosporous year at Mattson Farms.
Our forcast, for the 2012 season played out to be fairly accurate. We had dry soil last fall during planting, but the winter wheat came up successfully this spring. We did experience late frosts, that took a toll on the wheat yields and peas. The reoccuring lack of moisture and heat in late summer also played havoc on our peas and continuous cropped wheat acres. Our fallow acres however, yeilded exceptionally well with good quality, high protein, and high test weight considering moderate rainfall.
We hope to get into the fields to start planting winter wheat mid-September. Once again a lack of moisture is present and we hope to get some sufficient rainfall before hitting the field. With the last day of planting for crop insurance purposes being October 31st, we hope to be completed long before then.
The Mattson's also have some new additionas to the family. We welcomed Connor Leonard Mattson into the world last February, son of Vince and Kerry. He has been a fun addition to the clan and loves riding equipment with his dad, especially when he gets to steer. And in October, Megan will be giving us reason to celebrate with family and friends as she is getting married.
