Another hot dry week for the area 
 
   Due to dry and hot conditions across the county many farmers baled their winter wheat for feed and crops continue to wither as drought bakes South Dakota. The Federal Agriculture Department says hot, dry conditions persisted across South Dakota last week. The temperature has been ranging from 90 to 107 degrees since the first of July. Temperatures will remain from 90 to 100 degrees for the next week with no relief in sight. 
   Harvest is now in full swing and Julie Mews, employee at Dakota Mill & Grain in Presho, reported winter wheat and spring wheat have been yielding from 12-15 percent protein with test weights around 60-61 pounds. Yields were reported in the 30-40 bushels per acre range. Todd Longville, South Dakota Wheat Growers Elevator in Kennebec, reported they have not received much spring wheat, but the winter wheat is running anywhere between 15-60 bushels per acre with protein yielding from 10.5 to 18 percent and test weight averaging 58 pounds. Current new crop prices at Presho and Kennebec are $7.57 for spring wheat and $5.77 for winter wheat.
