  • Likely as a child you collected fireflies in a jar and took them to bed to light up your room on a warm summer night.  
    I remember getting my parents to puncture the lid of a mason jar so the magical insects could breathe.  
    Well, it turns out that all that light flashing wasn’t meant for our entertainment  but rather about entertaining love.
    Researchers at Tufts University and Bringham and Woman’s Hospital have been observing the flashes of fireflies for a decade of summers and what they have uncovered may surprise you.

  • 2013 is turning into a very unusual cropping year.  Following 2012, hot and dry, 2013, has been cool and wet, relative to some of our recent years. Crops overall seem to be in pretty good shape. The corn and soybeans are on the mark of being outstanding. Grass for grazing continues to be green and excellent for growing our young calves. Hay production has been outstanding, even if we never had a period to harvest our hay. Everything looks rosy at this time. But, there is another side of the story.
