Nebraska farmers continue to make good progress on the soybean harvest, while the corn harvest is running about average.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in the weekly crop report on Monday that the soybean harvest is 84 percent complete. That's close to last year's 86 percent but well ahead of the average of 67 percent.

The USDA says the corn harvest was at 30 percent. That's behind last year's 47 percent but near the average of 28 percent. Seventy-five percent of the corn is in good to excellent condition.

The report say seeding of the winter wheat crop is almost done. Cattle are being moved to stalks as fields become available.
