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.

Conversation With EASE Training-3 Sessions

Published Feb. 25, 2014

Conversations about how food is produced are happening. But the voices of farmers have been less representative in the conversation about food production.

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.
