Combines are rolling up and down the fields of North Dakota.
Each machine pulling a different crop into the hopper.
Ag Reporter Sarah Gustin takes you near Sterling for this harvest story.
The winter wheat is in the bin.
(Lucas Lang / Farmer) "Real nice quality this year. 60 pounds, 61 pounds. 13 protein. nice color. Just overall a really nice looking crop."
Hours ago oats harvest started.
(Lucas Lang / Farmer) "Just got rolling on the oats. It's looking pretty good. We haven't weighed any trucks so we don't have an exact idea, but we are pretty happy with it."
Lucas Lang started harvesting 10 days ago.
(Sarah Gustin / firstname.lastname@example.org) "Lang estimates he only has a few more days of picking up oat rows and then it's off to the spring wheat harvest."
(Lucas Lang / Farmer) "Probably going to be 4-5 days. It would be nice to have a little break between the two but shouldn't be too long."
Lang says while the small grains are yielding better when comparing this year to last year, he's worried about this years row crops.
He says his corn, beans and sunflowers could all use at least an inch of rain.
(Lucas Lang / Farmer) "Early season crops are looking better than last year. Kinda worried about the row crops. We will probably have enough to squeak by but nothing bumper on the row crops, but the early season crops we are pretty happy with."
Unloading a high quality crop and hoping for more quality bushels to come.

Lang says all of the oats he harvests will be used as forage this winter.
