Farmers throughout the county were in the field Saturday afternoon finishing up soybean planting.  Jay Volk who was planting a field south of CR 30 said he  has been trying to plant for a month, but the weather kept him out of the fields.  He hoped to be finished by the end of May.

Across the road, Jarett Andersen who was making a repair on his planter was getting a hand from his three-year old daughter Hailey.  Hailey told mom Ashley to stay home and Hailey would go with dad.
