  • Lawsuits challenge drone rules
    Monday, September 22, 2014 3:00 PM
    Model aircraft hobbyists, research universities and commercial drone interests filed lawsuits challenging a government directive that they say imposes tough new limits on the use of model aircraft and broadens the agency’s ban on commercial drone flights. 
  • ‘Ag-gag’ laws challenged in court
    Monday, September 22, 2014 1:00 PM
    The years-long fight between farm organizations and animal rights activists over laws prohibiting secretly filmed documentation of animal abuse is moving from state legislatures to federal courts as laws in Utah and Idaho face constitutional challenges. 
  • Top 4 takeaways from Farm Bureau policy session
    Monday, September 22, 2014 11:00 AM
    It may seem hard to believe that 2014 is more than half over, but members of Indiana Farm Bureau are well aware. Delegates met recently to consider policies that will guide them next year. 
  • New framework for trading wetlands urged
    Monday, September 22, 2014 9:00 AM
    If Faust had been in the business of trading wetlands rather than selling his soul, the devil might be portrayed by the current guidelines for wetland restoration.

    It’s summer, and if you have a grain operation, you’re keeping a close eye on the weather forecast. At times, the weekly forecast seems to change almost every day. Wouldn’t it be frustrating if your production plans changed as often as the weather forecast does? 
  • Jared Finegan
    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. 
  • 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. 
  • 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.
