With 6 to 8 inches of rain falling in northeast Nebraska the past couple of days, many fields have several feet of standing water.
Larry Howard, Nebraska Educator with the Cuming County Extension Office in West Point says we normally have 15 inches of rain by the end of June. We already have just under 22 inches with more rain falling.
Howard advises farmers to keep an eye on their feedlot holding ponds. They’re required to be designed to hold this much water but if they do overflow, contact the Department of Environmental Quality.
