Currently we are in the process of seasonal maintenance on the 28 applicator. We will begin using this tool in the next few days to start the second application of liquid 28% nitrogen for the corn. We split apply nitrogen on the corn crop, some at the time of planting and the remaining during a side dress application. Split application allows nitrogen to be there as the corn needs it during the growing season. . . . #TakeOverTuesday this week is with Musselman Farms in Pickaway County.

The Ohio Young Ag Professionals State Committee has allowed us to better advocate for the Ohio Farm Bureau on many levels. Currently, we are working along side with many other committee members to schedule the speakers and events of the 2019 Winder Leadership Conference which is February 1-2. Along with the leadership conference, we are able to represent our state and county at many different events throughout the year. Including Ag Day at the Capital, AFBF National Conference, YF&R National Conference and many other county events just to name a few. . . . #TakeOverTuesday this week is with Musselman Farms in Pickaway County.
