  • What should I be doing with my tax savings?

    Tax refund season: It’s like Christmas come really early! Or maybe it is just late?
    Either way, tax refund season is an excellent opportunity to begin the new year by making wise financial decisions.
    According to the Internal Revenue Service, the average tax refund in 2016 was about $3,050.

  • After life-threatening illness, mother and daughter find new causes

    After a potentially life threatening bout with her Crohn’s disease and septic shock in 2016, Lyndi Carnal pulled through with a heart to help others.
    Mother Tiffany also found a cause to work on, after fearing the doctors relied far too much on addictive medications in her daughter’s treatment. Tiffany went on a crusade to promote natural alternatives to pharmaceuticals.

  • Frost seeding for pastures and hay fields

    Yes, I know. I have written about frost seeding once this year, but I wanted to share this information again. Grasses and legumes start to thin throughout the years and causes a decrease in forage production.
    A technique called “frost seeding” is a great way to increase your pasture and hay field production without completely renovating your pastures and hay fields.
    Frost seeding is when seed is broadcast onto the ground between Feb. 10 and March 1, and as the ground freezes and thaws, the seeds are worked into the ground and germinate in the spring.
