Today, we're going to introduce you to some of your colleagues in the farming and ranching business. This time, Mater Farms on the Palouse. David Sparks with Kevin Mader. I farm. here on the Palouse just north of Pullman, Washington. On our farm we farm wheat, garbanzo beans, peas, lentils, and some barley. All of our ground is in the around the 20 inch rainfall 2020 two inch rainfall. Our winter wheat averages are in that 85 to 90 bushel an acre range. We're on the drier side this year. You know, it's been I think we're sitting at a hair over 17in for the year. So you know, that's a good 3 to 5in below below normal on the moisture. And and so that's definitely affected the yields this year. It was hot early in the spring. Thankfully we got some cool weather. Really haven't had a lot of moisture since the end of April. So it's definitely affected things this year. You know, we've had we've had a few breakdowns, but for the most part everything's been running real, real smooth. So it's been a great harvest season. We're pretty blessed. Great crew. And that makes all the difference in the world. Speaker1: Along with a huge agricultural presence, the Palouse is home to two land grant universities. University of Idaho in Moscow and Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, just eight miles apart. Both schools opened in the early 1890s.
