Fitzsimmons Land & Cattle To Host KLA/K-State Ranch Field Day

Challenges facing ranchers and feeders in the nation's capital will be highlighted during the Aug. 21 KLA/Kansas State University Ranch Management Field Day at Fitzsimmons Land & Cattle near Cunningham. The Dean and Jerree Fitzsimmons and Gary and Mary Fitzsimmons families own and operate this diversified beef cattle and crop farm in eastern Pratt County. The Fitzsimmons have a commercial spring-calving cowherd and background their calves prior to selling them in the spring. In addition, they raise wheat, milo, alfalfa and silage to complement the beef cattle enterprise.

Martha’s Big Adventure - A Nerd Girl’s Paradise

My big summer project has turned out to be redecorating my Chicago apartment. It all started because I told my landlord I was moving in order to gain a dishwasher and a vent above the stove. He countered with an offer to put both of them in and then some. That has created an interesting discussion among my friends about women and comic books that has been more disturbing than you might have thought possible.

Planting the Next Crop

Before today's topic, let's briefly update the area's drought status. Remember this is through 7 a.m. Tuesday, Aug.13. The no drought area has moved into the eastern third or so of the county (and even in to Stafford County). The abnormally dry area is the middle third and the western quarter is in moderate drought. And this doesn't reflect any rains after 7 a.m. this past Tuesday. Last year at this time we were pretty much at the highest or next to highest drought severity rating. What a difference a year makes.
