    I am sure folks are beginning to wonder if we still have grass pastures under the snow covered fields. As the weather begins to change it is important to be prepared. We must  be ready to  make quick applications of soil amendments and seed before we get that quick flush of growth in spring. We will also discuss alfalfa seeding as a way to improve hay and pasture production.

Many farmers are familiar with the 2014 Farm Bill programs for grain crops and have been working to update information and select a program that best fits their farm.

  • We have been trudging about in shin-deep snow for days now and the subzero temperatures have kept us on our toes as we try to keep livestock out of the wind and supplied with hay and water.
