South Dakota Farmers Union celebrates Dallas farm family

Ask Steve McCance the best date to plant winter wheat, and he responds, “Sept. 20, right after oat harvest. You will get just the right amount of growth so the wheat will not be as apt to winterkill.” Ask him the best time to sell weaned calves, and the Dallas farmer’s response? “The first sale of the year. Buyers have a bit of renewed optimism.”

The term “Dog Days” traditionally refers to a period of particularly hot and humid weather occurring during the summer months of July and August in the Northern Hemisphere. In ancient Greece and Rome, the Dog Days were believed to be a time of bad luck and unrest. This was certainly the case last summer as a devastating summer storm ripped through Gregory County on August 6.

Unusually small senior classes reflected in county’s enrollment numbers

Both Burke and Gregory school districts have unusually small senior classes this year, especially when compared to the rest of the high school classes. In spite of this, Gregory’s enrollment is only down by one student from last year. Burke, however, is down by 19. South Central School District, which has only grades K-5, is down by nine. These three schools combined are seeing a total county-wide decrease of 65 compared to last year.
