10 Tips How To Approach Women And Meet Ladies

Stretch marks happen when the female gains or drops body weight. The marks show like surprisingly fine lines and are moreover typically the similar color of your skin just a bit finer. Stretch-marks are more common in women when compared with men. Women that are expectant could experience stretch-marks due to the growing of our skin.

Summer 2013

Well I have my corn looking very good.  We are wet,but my land rolls enough to keep from being soggy.  I expect some of my corn to go 200+ and average 150+. My open pollinated looks to go 135+.  I am planning on increasing my acerage for next year and my major factor is financing.  I am profitable and in fact bankers are telling me my cost of production are almost half of what most are.  The problem is I have little history.  I have been in agriculture nearly all my life yet on my own for…

Where I've Been and Where I Am Now

I have done a horrible job keeping up my Farmer's for the Future profile here lately. My last blog post was in 2010. A LOT has happened since 2010. So here is a little recap:


Transferred to the University of Georgia. Still a full time college student while going home and helping with the farm on the weekends as much as I am able to. In the summer I was able to attend the New Century Farmer Alumni Conference in Des Moines, IA with my boyfriend. I was happy to have him tag…

My name is Rick and I'm tryin to put beef cattle on my grandpa's old land that I've been buyin. My problem is the same as grandpa's,poor soil. One of the local dairy farmers wasn't even interested in farming it for free for 2 years. He said the soils so poor "you can't raise hell on it". It's typical of northern Mich. 6 inches of black -brown loam then strait to " sugar sand" ,or beach sand if you prefer. Commonly called Kalkaska loam. What can I plant that won't cost an arm and a leg to… Continue

K2 Year 5 and mental mistakes

   We planted our first crop in 2009 with a total of 260 acres.   We started planning in earnest in the summer of 2008 when we have firm commitments to rent 110 acres along with the 150 I had been paying on since I finished college.  I posted on this sight and looking for any and all pointers.  I had always been the hired hand up to that point and had no family that crop farmed.   Im sure I learned countless things the easy way from gracious posters.  Even though I still learn…

Corn in ground

Corn is planted and almost poking through already.  Winter barley trial is interesting as it is short but is heading out very well already.  Weighing my options on which herbicide to post on my non gmo corn.  Yes all my corn is conventional and some is even open pollinated.  No triple dipple or quad stacks of hundred dollar bills for my seed bill.  I also can proudly say Monsanto(monsatan) has not gotten a penny from me yet. It is definitely not the easy way to go choosing non gmo. I also…

When to plant

To plant or not to plant today...  with time ticking away, lots of rain and cold temps in the forecast it's hard to know what's best. Guess for now I don't have to choose myself :) Good luck farmers!

Marketing crops for 2013

A guy I know, who buys a lot of corn, stated a couple of weeks ago that the last three years have turned good disciplined marketers into bad marketers.   He's right in the sense that in the last three years any forward sale has been a bad one.   I agree with him that selling grain should be about risk control and not about dollar maximization.  Those that can make the jump are better marketers and sleep better.     The business school people would say which do you want...  two identical…
