Here on the Farm the fellas have gotten the corn all planted and reported to the Farm Service Agency in Walton and the new seedings and the hay fields to be harvested for 2018 and 2019. We hope all farmers have gotten their corn planted or are getting it done soon with the weather getting better this week. The fields are getting dried up more so the fellas can mow some hay and chop it to be stored in the bunk for winter feeding. Keep buying dairy products - we need to keep the farmers around. So many are selling their farms with the stress of low milk prices and ongoing expenses. Keep farmers in your thoughts that things may improve over time and remember, farmers feed us daily.
