Before the weather changes from summer to fall and into winter, a number of crops grown in the Texas Panhandle are cut and collected ready to be sold.

Fall harvest traditionally starts in late September early October and runs into November. This year a number of factors are contributing to getting corn and sorghum out of the ground a few weeks ahead of schedule.

For the next few months combines will run through fields to harvest the crops where they will be stored in bins before going to a co-op for storage and then for sale.

A delayed or later than normal planting season is being made up for thanks to the weather.

The Ivermectin experiment has made its way to our area. The Texas Panhandle Poison Center is reporting a 200% increase in calls from July to August relating to the misuse of the drug to treat COVID-19, instead of its intended function, to treat worm infections in livestock.

A local tractor supply company has had Ivermectin flying off its shelves. The store is now going to the lengths of posting signs about its side effects and questioning customers who are looking to purchase it.

If you or someone you know has taken Ivermectin and is concerned, it is recommended you call the Poison Center at 1-800-222-1222 and speak with a nurse about the next steps you should take.
