Producers able to progress with spring seeding

This week in Montana brought some warm days, as well as cold nights and widespread precipitation, according to the Mountain Regional Field Office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service, USDA. High temperatures ranged from the lower 50s to the lower 70s, and low temperatures ranged from 9 degrees in Scobey to the mid 30s.

Most of the state received measurable precipitation, with the highest amount recorded in Biddle with 1.66 inches of moisture while other stations recorded between 0.02 and 1.51 inches of moisture.

Producers were able to make some progress with spring seeding despite setbacks due to precipitation that has all crop seedings behind both last year and the five-year average.

Reporters are noting that pastures are greening up very nicely this spring and livestock producers are working on getting animals ready to move out to summer ranges.
