A larger-than-usual crowd of about 300 people was on hand at Great Bend's Expo III Arena to start the rodeo, due in part to a special morning performance by the Double Trouble Trick Riders. The extra attention brought on some early performance jitters, but the riders quickly adjusted and performed well, said Rosewood Ranch manager Eric Hammond.

Farming January 2015 vs. January 1914 – Part 2

Last week's column briefly discussed some of the reasons for the large changes in agriculture over the last century.
