  • Oats are a late-season forage option
    If you are looking to extend the grazing season or bolster stored forage inventories, then I would suggest planting oats. Late summer-seeded oats thrive in cool conditions, have high feed value, and can produce more than 2 tons of hay or pasture in the fall. The crop also dies out over winter, which protects soil without causing planting problems in the spring. It has found a niche as a fall forage crop for the north and central latitudes of the U.S. So, now is an excellent time to plant oats or other annual forages.
  • We have the students we want
    In the past I have written about having the schools we want, but with so many rules and regulations out of administrator and teacher control, that has become difficult. Between tax cuts and mandates it is hard to stay abreast of the requirements and adjustments made in education.
