REFUGIO COUNTY – The grain sorghum harvest is just about over, and the crop looks good.

Roxann Wiginton, general manager of the Woodsboro Farmers Co-op, said the milo harvest was about 90 percent complete.

And she said the crop has done “surprisingly well on such little moisture.”

She added that the rain we did have was timely for the crop.

She said the co-op’s capacity will fill up. That means about 100,000 pounds of grain will be harvested.

So far, some of the grain has been sent to the Port of Corpus Christi and to Mexico to make room for more at the co-op.

The harvest began at the end of June and should be finished by the end of the week.
