Although the Bedford area has been getting a good bit of rain this month, the weather was dry in the summer. According to P. W. Morgan, who operates a family farm in Huddleston, his farm went 48 days without rain. Morgan raises wheat, soybeans, corn and beef cattle.
The wheat is harvested in June and did very well. Along with selling the grain, Morgan markets square bales of wheat straw.
“We can deliver that in tractor trailer loads,” he said.
