  • Let's get out of control

    In January 2013 I was blessed to be able to go to the Holy Land with our Bishop, Lindsey Davis and His wife, Jennifer Mink Davis. There were many who also attended this journey and came from all parts of Kentucky. We all met in Philadelphia and traveled together on one big plane. It was a long flight which took about 13 hours before landing in Israel. Our flight left very late that evening, and once I boarded the aircraft, even though very excited, I prepared myself to go to sleep for the beginning of the flight.

  • USDA sending acreage history, yield reports to help producers prepare for New Farm Bill programs

    U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) announces that farmers should start receiving notices updating them on their current base acres, yields and 2009-2012 planting history. The written updates are an important part of preparing agricultural producers for the new safety net programs established by the 2014 Farm Bill.
     Verifying the accuracy of data on a farm’s acreage history is an important step for producers enrolling in the upcoming Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) program and the Price Loss Coverage (PLC) program.
