Kansas Farm Bureau honors tradition and heritage of family farms

Tradition and heritage are a big part of what makes agriculture such an attractive way of life for so many Kansans. The lifeblood of our existence, the farms and ranches in Kansas, provide food, fuel and fiber for the world.

Surviving Hard Times – Part I

While it's too early to set in stone, it is certainly shaping up as a financially challenging year for crop and livestock producers. Crop prices, input costs, sluggish economies around the world, and many other factors will test the patience and skill of producers. This isn't to imply input prices haven't fallen but overall they haven't fallen nearly as much as most crop prices.

Getting rid of unwanted trees

Trees have a way of propagating themselves in our landscapes on their own. Many times when this happens, it is in a spot that is undesirable to the homeowner. I get a lot of questions throughout the year on how to permanently get rid of unwanted trees in the landscape. If you have trees that you would like to remove, now is actually a good time to get rid of them. I found an article from the Horticulture department at K-State Research and Extension that explains how to effectively control them. As always, you can call me if you have ...

Rabies – in cattle?

When rabies is mentioned, it often conjures classic images from movies of an infected animal running rabid. While this viral disease seems far from concern, particularly in domestic animals, recent events suggest it is a bigger problem than traditionally thought.

Poinsettia plants

Christmas is almost here, and everyone is hurrying to finish their last minute preparations for the special day. I remember as a child seeing the beautiful poinsettia plants decorating the church for Christmas Eve services and thinking they were so beautiful! This week, I searched and found little history about them from K-State Research and Extension's horticulture team to share with you. They take a lot of work to make sure they are ready for the Christmas season, but I for one think it's worth it. I hope all of your celebrations this year are filled with laughter ...
