As a proud Michigan State Spartan, I know defense wins basketball games. If you follow the game and Tom Izzo (top coach in the country in my book), you know that rebounding and great defense have taken our beloved coach to the best record in the Big Dance. We like to watch what Izzo does best – play one of the toughest schedules in the country, take some losses (even though we really dislike the recent Big 10 losses) and get teams to peak at just the right time.

I would like to ask you all how have you started out farming? I graduated from K-State in agronomy hoping that I could use that like a job resume for picking up farm ground. I have three 4000+ acre farmers around me, my Dad isn't large enough to split ground off for me, and I am trying to find farm ground to buy, rent, share-crop. Whenever I hear of land coming up for lease the already established farmers beat any offer I can make. My Dad and I have been purchasing…Continue

I was wondering if anyone has planted corn/soybeans/ and maybe milo varities from channel seeds. My Dad and I have been planting Asgrow, NK, and Dekalb seed the past several years. I have a friend that just became a channel seed dealer and I want to try to give him our business. Can anyone help with any experience they might have had with their seed? Thanks.
