Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We finished on Wednesday evening with the double-crops. They did extremely well. They were short but they still had a lot of beans on them. They were in the mid-40s over 300-some acres of double-crops. Even some of the beans we planted July 18 still made it in the upper 30s. On our first field we were hoping for 50 but it actually went 49. They matured great.The wheat looks great. The moisture we got helped it and the warm temperatures have it off to a really good start.It was probably one of the best years we’ve had for beans. One non-GMO variety that we plant could have been better on yield. It is an old variety and it does well for how old it is. We ended up averaging around 69 on beans. The last fields we had were in the low 60s and brought the average down.The corn high yield was a field averaging 240 and the lowest average yield was around180 bushels. Very few fields went below 200. It wasn’t a record yield for corn but it was still good. After talking to other people we can’t complain about 2016. With the way the fall went, it makes you feel good about doing it again next year.Prices stayed better than I anticipated with there being such a big crop out there. We sell double-crops straight to market because we can’t hold them and they were close to a dollar higher than last year.The wheat acres did extremely well with the wheat crop, the straw and a 40-bushel double-crop average. The income off of those acres was probably the highest.

About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say Man City midfielder Gundogan: We needed response after Norwichby Ansser Sadiqa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan believes his side had to show a response after their poor result at the weekend.City were humbled by Norwich City in the Premier League, losing 3-2 away from home.But they showed their quality in the first game of the Champions League group stages, with an impressive 3-0 away win against Shakhtar Donetsk.Speaking about the win, in which he scored, Gundogan said to the club’s official website: “We played quite well I think. The first goal away helps you but we never relaxed, kept the ball well and created a lot of chances. the result is great for us at a tough ground.”We had at least a couple of clear chances. But the third goal killed the game and we were able to play down the last 15 minutes.”It was necessary to respond and respond well (to the Norwich defeat) All of us, not just individually. They created good chances but we were solid at the back.”
OTTAWA – The federal government is considering whether to foot the bill for the construction of affordable housing units as part of a fresh push to help homeless military veterans get off the streets — one of many ideas floated to groups trying to tackle the issue.Expanding the stock of affordable housing for veterans is referenced in a document — sent to dozens of groups set to gather Thursday in the national capital — that outlines potential steps the federal government can take to reduce the number of homeless vets.There is no dollar figure included, but the funding would likely come from the government’s $40-billion national housing strategy, which prioritizes projects for veterans and certain other groups, including women fleeing domestic violence, Indigenous Peoples and those with mental health issues.The government isn’t ready to get into the business of building and managing affordable housing for former soldiers and is instead looking to fund projects from the private sector or other levels of government, said Veterans Affairs Minister Seamus O’Regan.He said the government is figuring out the most effective way to target veterans through the $40-billion national housing strategy.The ideas in the working document, which include rewriting departmental rules to provide rent subsidies to veterans, will be part of a day-long event where more than 70 groups will tell O’Regan and other federal officials what does and doesn’t work, and develop some quick policy ideas the Liberals can implement.“If we can get veterans off the streets now, then we’ll do it now. We’re not waiting on a strategy,” O’Regan said in an interview Wednesday.Officials have spent two years on a strategy aimed at preventing veterans from ending up on the streets and ending chronic and episodic homelessness among former soldiers. What internal government documents describe is a co-ordinated safety net that helps veterans quickly access housing to ensure their homelessness is brief and doesn’t recur.The veterans strategy has ping-ponged between the department and the minister’s office for months over requested ministerial changes, according to two sources with knowledge of the issue.An internal Veterans Affairs Canada presentation, obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act, shows officials sought approval in March for the plan, entitled “Coming Home: A Strategy to Prevent and End Veteran Homelessness in Canada.”A January presentation about the strategy also released by the department said the government must eliminate gaps and make services consistent across the country, because “24/7 services must be available for veterans in crisis.” The strategy would be based on a “housing first” model, where veterans would be housed quickly and provided support services, putting “less reliance on volunteer services.”Accurate data about the number of homeless veterans in Canada remains elusive, but various studies estimate it at between five and seven per cent of the country’s homeless population — possibly more, since homeless counts and shelter studies rely on veterans to self-identify.“You can throw numbers out there, but I think they’re wildly inaccurate,” O’Regan said. “Let’s put it this way: It’s obviously more than we’d like and my objective is to eliminate it.”In April, the government launched an emergency fund that allows department officials to provide cash directly to veterans and their families. The government has budgeted $1 million annually for the fund.“This is a problem that can’t be solved by just throwing money at it,” said Jim Lowther, whose group Vets Canada helps house homeless veterans.“Since the emergency fund launched we have been keeping very detailed records on the number of veterans approved and denied and I can tell you that the funds are not the solution.”— Follow @jpress on Twitter.

EDMONTON, A.B. – Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says while other western premiers meeting in Yellowknife will be talking about how to spend money, she’ll be working in Alberta figuring out how to earn it.Notley says she is not attending the meeting on Wednesday because her time is better spent making sure the Trans Mountain pipeline project goes ahead.She says Alberta needs to be able to pay for important programs to be discussed at the meeting such as pharmacare. She says it’s not business as usual because B.C. Premier John Horgan is trying to shut down the pipeline and take $15 billion out of the Canadian economy.This is about more than a pipeline.It’s about our country’s ???????? ability to create jobs and attract investment.We have to show that we can make decisions that respect the rule of law, that we can get things done, and @KeepCanWorking.#ConfidenceinCanada #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/d61R7xXpPX— Rachel Notley (@RachelNotley) May 22, 2018She says it might be worth going to the meeting to chastise Horgan if a decision on Trans Mountain were still a long way off, but the deadline is too close now for her to do that.Owner Kinder Morgan has set May 31 as the date by which it needs to have enough certainty to proceed with the pipeline’s expansion.Alberta sees the pipeline as key to moving bitumen from the province to the coast and from there to lucrative overseas markets.
Despite it being a major outage, Gammer says crews worked quickly and were able to restore power to all affected customers within 2 hours and 40 minutes from when the initial outage had occurred at approximately 8:50 p.m.Reports of fires after the outage were shared all over social media, but those were all controlled flaring at facilities all over the B.C. Peace and in Prince George. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – 125,000 customers were without power from 100 Mile House to Prince George and the B.C. Peace. on Wednesday night due to a major power failure.According to B.C. Hydro Media Relations, Bob Gammer, the cause of the power outage is still under investigation but believes the power outage was caused by a lightning strike that then caused a transmission circuit fault.“In terms of a cause, we suspect it’s lightning and we are continuing our investigation in terms of where the lightning hit, how one lightning strike could cause this great of an outage because we do get hit by lightning many times a year and our protective absorbs that and we just continue on. Something was different this time and we are looking into that.”
