Published Apr. 15, 2014

The extreme lack of common sense in everyday life has me ready to scream! I’m talking about the people who move to the country, build a beautiful house next to a farm and then have the nerve to try to tell the farmer what he can or cannot do. Did anyone bother to notice that the farmer was there first? And since it takes more than a few days to build a house, didn’t anyone hear the grain dryers ru...

Great Dairy Herds, by John Parker

Published Apr. 10, 2014

  If you read David Marrison’s column about the awards given at the recent Dairy Banquet, you should have been impressed by the accomplishments of local dairy farmers. When we have top dairy herds in the state locally, that says we have dairy farmers doing everything right.  It is obvious that the Boggs Family know how to give their cow’s excellent care. Or when a herd like Bossy’s Way, that is al...

Our Favorite Things About Spring, by Kathy Smith

Published Mar. 19, 2014

Nearly everyone I talk to lately is tired of winter. Our record-breaking cold temperatures and about 70 consecutive days with snow on the ground has even the eternal optimists saying “Enough.”  So to put us all in a better mood, we’re going to think about spring-our favorite things about spring.

Conversation With EASE Training-3 Sessions

Published Feb. 25, 2014

Engaging in conversation about food production will help farmers understand what consumers want to know and will help consumers learn more about how food is produced from the people who actually produce it. In the end, we all have an interest in...

It Should Be Called the Consumer Bill

Published Feb. 18, 2014

It should be called the “Consumer Bill” rather than the Farm Bill that it is usually called.  Why?  Because it benefits all consumers as much, and in some ways more, than it benefits farmers.
