Tell the livestock story

Today's livestock producers work in a noble profession. Unfortunately, not everyone believes this so people who care for animals must understand how consumers think and feel. Get inside their heads, if you will.

Too much water

Since I have been the Agriculture and Natural Resources agent for Barton County, my columns have centered on the drought, and how you can water effectively to help your plants through the stressful times. Well, now the pendulum has swung the other direction, and many are wondering how all of this water will affect their plants.

Focus on Healthy Snacking this Summer

Kids are enjoying the first few days of summer vacation but that does not mean that learning has to take a vacation; especially in the area of nutrition education. I remember when John and I were raising our three kids that our summer grocery bill jumped considerably. It would have been easy to fall into the trap of stocking up on the many processed foods on the market and offering those to our busy family. Instead I tried to make sure we had the refrigerator and pantry stocked with healthy choices for meals and snacks.

The Time is NOW!!!

All fishermen (and women) love to brag and show their catch before it gets to the dinner table. A limit of five walleye is no small accomplishment. It looms larger when fishing on the lakes that have a 18 inch limit as opposed to the 15 inch limit on other lakes. I'm not sure why the regulations aren't standard across the state. There are several things about the regulations that I feel could make fishing better for all of us. The major rule in my estimation that is harmful is the 50 fish limit for crappie. A decent ...

Let's Ditch the Political Correctness

Political correctness is a contradiction of reality and distortion of morality that necessitates relentless government intervention devised by those who seek to control our lives. These self-appointed "Speech Sheriffs" warn us that words spoken outside the imaginary perimeters they've set are judgmental, negative, racist or intolerant.
