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. Publicly, some are nearby and all are worthwhile for the target audience, especially for those needing continuing education hours in their area of expertise. What are some of the public opportunities coming up soon?

Looking To The New Year

Now that it's officially 2014, what lies ahead for Kansas agriculture? It probably doesn't take being in the food, fiber, and fuel business to now that the biggest question for 2014 is the weather or specifically precipitation. As of Christmas Eve, the eastern half of Kansas is rated as abnormally dry with only the southeast corner rated as okay. The western third of the state is rated mostly in severe drought with portions in the extreme range. The part in the middle where Barton County is located is in moderate drought. While not great, this is better than ...

Moderation and balance

It's the New Year and like so many, I have vowed to shed those extra pounds. Losing weight is no easy task. Expectations often exceed the will to lose this weight gradually during an extended period of time.

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. This means in places soil temperatures have been colder than normal, leaving some producers wondering if these conditions will leave wheat fields susceptible to winter die-off?

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.

Why Snow Matters In Agriculture

Here's hoping everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is looking forward to a fruitful New Year. Instead of continuing to look back at the agricultural events of this past year, let's examine the benefits of snow for agriculture. While it makes travel difficult and causes headaches for many, including farmers and ranchers, snow is a necessary evil with many benefits for agricultural production.
