The beans are done and in.

According to the federal Agriculture Department, South Dakota's soybean harvest is complete. Corn, sunflower and sorghum have a ways to go, but they're all advancing at a decent clip now.

The winter wheat crop is almost totally emerged. Meanwhile, the ranching community has pasture and ranges reportedly 52% rated poor or very poor, and stock water supplies are nearly 50% short.

To all our farming and ranching friends, best of luck the rest of the way and be careful out there!
