Wayne County, Ohio, farmers not happy with prospect of statewide manure spreading ban, and let Ohio director of agriculture hear about it. Read more from +Farm and Dairy reporter Chris Kick.
 
While part of Ohio agriculture director David Daniels’ goal for the day was to promote agriculture, he also came with an open ear — and area farmers spoke their mind during an open forum with the director. #agweek

I'm definitely sending this to my 20something children. (And it says something that their mother is on Google+, but they are not. I'm not sure what, but it says something...)
 
My advice to 22-year olds, after 38 more years of living, on how to achieve career success:

http://guykawasaki.com/my-advice-to-22-year-olds/
As I write this, I’m three months short of the big 6O. Here’s some advice based on thirty-eight more years of living than you have. Challenge the known and embrace the unknown. Accepting the known and resisting the unknown is a mistake. You should do exactly the opposite: challenge the known and embrace the unknown. …

This. Just this.
"Words matter. How you string sentences and paragraphs into a cohesive story is a valuable skill." 

Thank you, +Valeria Maltoni .
 
a few thoughts on how good writing paves the way for better #connections  
I've been re-reading William Zinsser On Writing Well and becoming ever so conscious of what I put out here. Hence the shorter posts lately. Learning to tighten form and edit out unnecessary words is one reason to read the book. Understanding that good writing leads to connecting well is an added incentive, if you need one. Words matter. How you string sentences and paragraphs into a cohesive story is a valuable skill. “A badly written message can...

So true, though I struggle with the duality of having people be too literal in the use of a word and/or the opposite of being unappreciative of the nuances and full meaning of a word.

It's almost as if our language needs a punctuation style to indicate I mean a word to be analogous too, constraining of or perhaps even building upon the 'true' meaning of the word (though there too what is the any-point-in-time full, true meaning of  a word?

We see this so often in the use of the word 'literally', an oft sloppy way of trying to say, I really mean what this word means rather than the more normal implied casual loose usage... though too its often used simply for effect.

Ah communication, if it were only so easy.

The five Meigs County men pled guilty in federal court Jan. 16 and agreed to forfeit $410,000 and a 2012 John Deere tractor. They remain on bond pending sentencing, which could carry a maximum of five years in prison, three years of supervised release and fines for each of up to $250,000. #cropinsurance   #fraud

In case you didn't read it yet, the +USDA extended the farm bill crop program deadline a month.
 
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said that producers are working to make the best decision they can. And, USDA is working to ensure they have the time, information, and opportunity to review their data, and to visit the Farm Service Agency. #farmbill   #usda  
Farmers now have until March 31 to update yields and reallocate base acres.

Home rule ordinances can't trump something the state permits... #shalegas  
 
"The court ruled that a Munroe Falls’ zoning ordinance and four local laws governing oil and gas drilling are not an appropriate exercise of the city’s home rule powers. The city had obtained a court order stopping Beck Energy Corporation from drilling until the company complied with local law."
The Ohio Supreme Court ruled that local governments cannot impede upon oil and gas activities that are state-approved.

CAUV (real estate taxation based on agricultural use value, not current market value) is a big deal for Ohio farmers, but the formula has pushed up appraisals on farm ground. The big debate now in Ohio is whether to open the whole can of worms (and possibly lose the exemption) or ? Read more in our ongoing coverage.
 
“The whole CAUV process is designed to take out short-term market changes each year and maintain greater stability,” Ohio Tax Commissioner Joe Testa said. “So even if we make these changes, it is based on a seven-year rolling average and you would have to see significant changes up or down for multiple years in a row before it would affect the formula.” #CAUV 
Ohio Tax Commissioner Joe Testa’s agricultural advisory committee will meet March 5, with CAUV as the primary agenda item.

Way better than the slam dunk contest!
 
I've watched this penalty shot from the All-Star game in slow motion about 15 times and still don't know how it works http://digg.com/video/this-is-the-flashiest-penalty-shot-weve-ever-seen
Hockey has never looked this graceful. We vote that the Olympic committee investigate a new form of figure skating that includes competitors dancing with sticks.

It takes some finesse to maneuver antique tractors like this!
 
We love the tractor square dancing at the Pennsylvania Farm Show. This video shows a rare and unique 16-tractor Star alignment!
