Ohio sees generally warm, dry February

The mostly mild winter has continued in Ohio.

The USDA says statewide temperatures for February were about eight degrees warmer than normal and while precipitation was under the usual levels, soil moisture retention has been good.

Wide swings in temperature throughout the course of the month have caused some stress to livestock.

68% of Ohio’s winter wheat crop is in good to excellent condition, 3% more than in late January.
