A late season start for seeding

You don’t have to look back too many years to find some farmers out in their fields by April 4th. 

But that’s not the case this year — according to Steve Tomac, a local farmer and rancher.
There’s not a lot of farming going on because it’s been cold and the ground is frozen. 
He says you have to have the right soil temperatures to get started.

Steve Tomac, Tomac Ranch say, “We got a ways to go before we need to worry about seeding. Even if this thing was going to flip flop and we were getting normal highs and normal temperatures it’d still be 2-3 weeks if that happened.”

Tomac usually starts planting in late April or early May, but he says it’ll be a rush come May to get seeding done.
