  • Even with cattle prices being extremely high, marketing animals together with other producers might allow you to receive additional income from your 2013 calf crop.

  • Last weekend we tackled some vegetable garden clean up.  
    The hail storm from a few weeks back destroyed most of what was left; subsequent wind and rain finished off the battered remains. So, we replanted a few crops, spread wood chips in the paths to control weeds and filled the remaining empty beds with a cover crop.   
    While many disease pathogens winter over on plant debris an equal amount remain viable in the soil, which means we need to strategize to keep the garden relatively free of disease.
