  • Heading for finish line
    Wow, what a change a week makes. Add a little heat and sun and farmers pop up in fields just like the mushrooms this time of year. I hope you found some; I haven’t hardly had time to sneak off and look. 
  • Much to do
    As I type, a rain cloud seems to be hovering above us — hate to wish away rain, but maybe just save it back of I could. Late spring means everything needs done at once — prep and planting. 
  • Spring's sights, smells
    It’s been a great week at the cattle barn. We have several new calves, one set of twins by a momma who has had twins six out of the last seven years. 
  • Illinois leads sustainable soybean production efforts
    As Illinois farmers, we are not only leaders in state soybean production, we are leaders in the conservation practices it takes to effectively manage that soybean production. 
  • Steps for maximizing soybean yields
    Growing soybeans requires more management today than 20 years ago due to earlier planting and increased disease and insect pressures. 
  • Celebrate 'Napa Valley of Midwest' with newspaper
    AgriNews is celebrating Hoosier grapes and wine with our “Winery of the Month” series. This series really hits home for me. As a big fan of wine and advocate for local businesses, I couldn’t wait to visit some of Indiana’s finest vineyards. 
  • Less corn now needed to make gallon of ethanol
    U.S. ethanol production reached record levels last year while using fewer bushels of corn to produce a gallon of the fuel. 
  • Soy contest creativity impresses audience
    What were you doing when you were 19 years old? I know I was attending classes at Indiana University in the Ernie Pyle School of Journalism, living in a house with four roommates and playing on a co-ed intramural softball team. I also know what I wasn’t doing: I wasn’t inventing something. 
  • Farmers need to talk about succession plan with family
    Developing a succession plan for a farming operation is not an easy subject for families to discuss. 
  • Catfights, Chipolte and staying connected
    Today, I want to talk about catfights and Chipotle’s anti-GMO message. Real, actual catfights. I have three cats, one cat shy of cat lady status.
