  • Celebrate Dairy Month
    For more than 75 years, milk and dairy products have been promoted every June in celebration of National Dairy Month.

  • Fair Oaks offers ag education and fun
    I have a confession. Whenever I go to Fair Oaks for work, I don’t want to interview people. I want to play.
  • Nothing like setting low goals
    This wasn’t the first time nor will it be the last that a governmental agency’s proposal raised more questions than provided answers. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency set its Renewable Volume Obligation targets for 2017 that are below those intended in the Renewable Fuel Standard set by Congress.
  • Moving FFA speech offers valuable lesson
    I have had the opportunity to hear dozens of FFA officer retiring addresses. However, during this year’s state convention, one struck a chord in my heart and even brought a tear to my eye.
