Better Yields in Northern Ellis County

That’s the assessment of Midland Marketing’s Brian Witt, coordinator of the Hays grain elevator, where harvested wheat was coming in slowly late Tuesday morning.

The southern part of Ellis County received less moisture than the northern portion of the county, and the southern area was also hit by hail recently:


“I’ve seen test weights from 55 to 63 pounds,” says Witt.  “It’s all dry, nothing’s over 12% moisture.”
