Stark County

Gary Steward

Gary Steward of Toulon Il., grows corn and soybeans, and custom farms with his son, David.


We finally got a half-inch of rain Tuesday morning after a couple tenths during the weekend of Aug. 18-19. Some showers in the area were up to 2 inches. Whatever we received, it will help our soybeans. We have been working on our grain drying system to make sure we are ready to go after Labor Day. We still have some combine repairs to get done and some roadsides to get mowed before harvest starts. It’s hard to believe high school football started Friday night.


No report


Scattered showers Aug. 4-5 missed northwest Stark County. We got a half-inch early Tuesday morning, which will help our soybeans. Everyone seems to be preparing for harvest. We had our combine inspected and found a couple problems that need attention. Should have time to get it done before Labor Day. We’re still moving corn and beans to the river every day. Looking forward to going to the State Fair Ag Day Tuesday.
