Educational opportunities abound

The holiday season is now over and another tradition is starting up for agriculture – education season. There are a variety of opportunities from both public and private sources. On the private front, many businesses involved in agriculture ranging from banks to seed companies and co-ops provide opportunities for the crop and cattle industry.

What are some of the public opportunities coming up soon?

As of Christmas Eve, the eastern half of Kansas is rated as abnormally dry with only the southeast corner rated as okay.

Moderation and balance

Cold Weather Effects on Wheat

Conditions have been unusually cold throughout Kansas during most of the start of winter. During the first blast of cold weather, there was little or no snow cover.

Christmas gems

Some people forget about the true meaning of Christmas – celebrating the birth of Christ, love, friendship and spending time with the family. As a youngster I have fond memories of Mom inside fixing turkey and dressing while my brothers and I would be playing outside throwing snowballs, playing "fox and geese" and just being kids.
