The news of Cargill Inc., America’s largest privately held corporation, based in Minnetonka, Minnesota being hoodwinked by their account manager, Diane Backis at the Port of Albany, has sent shock waves throughout the grain industry. The Greene County, N.Y., woman pleaded guilty to stealing at least $3.1 million from Cargill over 10 years and causing at least $25 million in losses. She also pleaded guilty to mail [...]

Oneonta, NY – The lovable, iconic dog, Snoopy, will forever be remembered for saying, “Keep looking up, that’s the secret to life.” For New York farmers and communities along the creeks, rivers and tributaries that feed the mighty Susquehanna River Basin and finally the Chesapeake Bay, the water quality is also getting a thumb’s up.

The Upper Susquehanna Watershed Forum held at SUNY Oneonta in November by the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed partners shared success stories, barriers and ongoing opportunities with 80 professionals from agriculture, conservation organizations, land trusts, advocacy [...]

In this heated political season of negative ads and commentary which dominate the television at every poke of the remote, we’ve been able to find an oasis from the politicians over at the Food Network and on HGTV.  They tantalize our taste-buds or spur us on to create a home project.  These shows even inspire my wife and I to take occasional road trips to find the television star’s favorite finds.  But will the pilgrimage live up to the hype of reality TV?

I remember well the 2 hour wait [...]

Oriskany Falls, NY—Pause for a moment today and remember the first time you encountered your soulmate.  Was it at a church function, the grocery store, a party, or some other random meeting place?  One of the more unique places has to be how Fred and Joyce Williams connected over fresh, frothy cans of milk at the ole, iconic Hinman Farm Products Plant in Deansboro, N.Y.  To say milk brought love may be the next great marketing campaign.

Back before bulk tanks and tractor-trailers, Joyce and her sister, Judy, would bring in a half a dozen [...]

Deansboro, NY – Rain finally arrived after a 13 day hiatus to stimulate thirsty crops and also lift the spirits of would-be mudders participating in this year’s 4th Annual Daniel Barden Highland Mudfest.  The recent moisture combined with a picturesque, sunny, sixty-degree race day provided wave after wave of runners, the ingredients to make a memorable journey for charity, based on the premise of nurturing and growing Daniel’s kind spirit, sense of adventure, humility and generosity.

The New 2017-2018 Grazing Chart Templates are ready. Will you take grazing management to a new level?

It’s that time again to work towards improved decision-making with your grazing management.  It pays to measure and monitor and I’ve found this tool invaluable for reducing stress and growing more grass.  New this year, I’ve enclosed 3 real examples(2 grazing and 1 crop) of how the charts have been used and how they were laid out, including my own.  Many have asked,  How do I get started?  I’m hoping these will give a glimpse of how to get set-up.  Since they are excel files, you are free to draft other templates that serve a customer better.  In my [...]
