  • Indiana FFA exceeds 10,000 members
    Thursday, August 21, 2014 5:00 PM
    Indiana FFA has reached a milestone by exceeding 10,000 members, something that hasn’t occurred in more than 30 years. Membership has steadily increased each year, said Steve Hickey, director of leadership programs. “It is great for our state,” he said. 
  • Advocating for agriculture isn’t new for FFA state president
    Thursday, August 21, 2014 3:00 PM
    Brittany Young was meant to be an ambassador for FFA. With her passion for all things agriculture, it’s not hard to see why she is this year’s Indiana FFA state president. The Hope native, much like the six other state officers, has had little to no down time since being elected in June at the state convention.

    A Purdue University study shows that Notch signaling, a key biological pathway tied to development and cell communication, also plays an important role in the onset of obesity and Type 2 diabetes, a discovery that offers new targets for treatment. 
  • The man behind Pioneer Village: Mauri Williamson
    Thursday, August 21, 2014 11:00 AM
    Visitors of the Indiana State Fair who see Mauri Williamson also likely will see a number of people stop and shake his hand or share a story with him. The well-known Hoosier founded Pioneer Village and served as executive secretary of the Purdue Agriculture Alumni Association for 40 years. 
  • Pioneer Village gives visitors glimpse of earlier days
    Thursday, August 21, 2014 9:00 AM
    Arriving at Pioneer Village on the Indiana State Fairgrounds is a lot like stepping back in time. In addition to the sounds of the old-time music being played, there are sights of quilters, woodwrights and blacksmiths busy at work and the taste of the maple syrup and potato doughnuts.

    This has had to be the most comfortable summer weather we have had in my adult life. Hope everyone has enjoyed all the fun summer activities this year. This cool weather has not been the best for the crops, however. It may not be an early harvest. 
  • Ted Mottaz
    The growing season continues to amaze me and my fellow area farmers. Just as we were starting to get a little dry with yards showing some stress, we got about 2 inches of rain for the week. The corn potential is fairly well set. 
  • Grant Noland
    Should a large corn and soybean crop materialize, producers and commercial facilities will face challenges in harvest logistics. As a former elevator manager, a record — potentially wet — corn crop will keep you up at night. 
  • David Droste
    Beans will need to be watched closely for leaf disease since the rain and the foggy mornings that we have been having can cause disease to develop and justify fungicide applications. 
  • Darren Frye
    Are you proud of your family farming operation? Are you confident and excited about how your farm has developed — and where you’re headed in the future? Successful operations should be proud of what they have accomplished. 
  • New coliseum dominates Indiana State Fair
    Every summer a different commodity is highlighted at the Indiana State Fair. There’s been “Year of the Corn,” “Year of the Dairy Cow” and many other themes, but this year is unlike anything we’ve seen. 
  • Spring: Farmers hard at work keeping world fed
    Finally, it’s here. Spring. Warmer weather. This past week, I spent mostly on the road, traveling to five different farms in northern and north-central Illinois. 
  • U.S grain quality top-notch for export
    The U.S. Grains Council recently released a report that serves as an important piece of the competitive global market in promoting our corn. 
  • Farmers should take time to take care of bodies, mind
    Farmers are some of the hardest working people out there. Constant lifting, pushing, fixing and running between fields, balanced with maintaining a family life, they often push their bodies to the limit. 
  • Farm stories need to be told
    I’ve been told that, for a long time, farmers and ag businesses were quiet when it came to telling their stories. Stories of hard work, integrity and progress. Things to be proud of. I’m glad that I’ve heard so many of these stories over the years — even before I worked in the agriculture industry.
