Farm And Ranch Country Posts

Just a short note today. Egypt, how does this affect American Agriculture? I will blog on this in a day or two. Need to let the dust settle. My first thought is that Israel and the radical elements in the Middle East will be at war by the end of October. I could be really wrong on that. At least I hope and pray so. How will these events affect agricultural markets and what is the macro economic effect? This event could be looked at as a major point in history or as a small blip in the road of world history. Unless of course you are directly effected by these events. Thoughts?/Comments?


Where to from here?

Real hot topic in Agricultural circles right now is the question Farm And Ranch Country

forecastMiddletown’s forecast for 2-07-11

Is winter coming to an end, or at least the most severe part of it?  This is today’s forecast.  I was still moving snow from last Tuesday’s storm.  I am ready for some warmer weather.  It will be a flood around here if it melts fast.  I will take that if it means getting rid of this snow.  What do you think, are you tired of winter?

My wife has a blog biggreencombine where she has been posting about what farmers do in the winter time.  A friend asked her what we did all winter long.  So this post is a video of me digging out a neighbor after 15 inches of snow.  On Feb 1st we had a thunder and lightning snow storm and massive winds.  On Feb. 2nd I spent all day in the cab of the loader tractor scooping snow.  Quarter mile lane and about half had to be literally dug out.  I do like the 5105m John Deere tractor.  This was the fourth neighbor to be dug out, besides our house, Dad and Mom’s house and the cattle operation.  By the way cows are ready for winter to be over (me too).
