Montana Ag Network: Harvest crews experiencing labor shortage

Montana grain harvest

The spring planting of crops is almost complete for farmers in Montana but a labor shortage created by COVID-19 may impact this year’s harvest.

In a few weeks, as the grain harvest begins in Texas and works its way north, farmers and custom harvest crews will experience a shortage of experienced guest workers — many of whom travel to the U.S. from Australia and South Africa as they follow the harvest around the world.
