In a detailed description - what is the current status of crops/livestock? (i.e. plant/harvest/finishing): Corn is great! It's taller than the hood on my MF 1155.  Soybeans are coming along, fields returning to normal. 

What is your outlook for the upcoming weeks?:  Hot and little rain.  90 degree plus til Monday then will cool down to mid-high 80's.  Possible shower, little water.  The ground has a crust with moisture under it.

Any advice for anyone else in your area dealing with similar conditions?:   Keep a stiff upper lip.
