  • Are you getting the most out of your pastures?

    Since I have started working in Henry County and learning the county, one thing is always very prominent with the farmers here.
    They are very passionate about their pastures and hay, and on many days, I will receive forage questions for eight straight hours.

    Studies from the University of Kentucky have shown that continually grazed pastures utilize only 30 percent of potential forage.

  • The shot heard all the way from Memphis

    By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
    Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
    Here once the embattled farmers stood,
    And fired the shot heard round the world.

    The shot heard round the world was fired at the battle of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson penned the words above commemorating the beginning of our Revolutionary War.
