We were blessed to receive upwards of 4 inches of rain between last Sunday and Friday. It came with a wallop of wind, which did some tree damage in several areas, had power out for seven hours in other areas and caused some green snap. We were able to get part of our cover crop seeded this week, but we got rained out before we finished. Our April 9 planted corn is getting close to harvest, and we are excited to see how it produces.
Mark and I, along with about 250 others, attended the Indiana Farm Bureau policy meeting in HendricksCounty on Saturday. I am doing some Ag in the Classroom training this week in PikeCounty. It is so important to teach children about where their food comes from since there is such a disconnect between some children and the farm.
My safety tip for this week is to check your farm vehicles to make sure all the lights are working. Check brake lights, turn signals, marker lights, headlights and any other lights you may have on the vehicle. Unless you like the free inspections the state offers on the side of the road, this is a good time to make sure everything is in working order before harvest. Until next week, have a great day.
