I Hate Daylight Savings
There are three events that are noted on almost any calendar
that drive me nuts and get under my skin. Those three days are Ground Hog Day
and the 2 days we either move our clocks ahead or backward an hour. The absurdity
of those events raises my blood pres...

Wildfires and Ag Family
I am proud to be a part of the
framework and fabric of people who provide food and fiber to our world. I am
proud to be a part for many reasons but one of the best reasons is because we

Sick and Tired
I have a cold. Normally this would just be miserable but we
have started calving heavy and this is a real problem, I simply don’t have time

cell phone user. I haven’t gone col...

Lambing and the Doughnut Man
Lambing season is officially in high gear at our place. It
is a time of the greatest highs and the lowest lows and sometimes they happen
in the same day. It is also the time of the year when I can fully relate to the

Elephants and Ag
This week Barnum/Baily Ringling Brothers Circus announced
that they would be calling it quits. Why is that newsworthy? It is a sad end of
a long-time piece of our American history. I don’t know too many of us who did
not see the circus as kids. I went to se...

Future of the Farm Bill
This week I am going to Phoenix, Arizona to the American
Farm Bureau Annual meeting. I am really looking forward to this trip. Yes,
partially because it is currently over seventy degrees in Phoenix versus the
current below zero here. It is also because I en...
