Hello to all you blog stalkers who are waiting for the Wed. installment of Ag in the Classroom! Conveniently for me, the first stop was SE of Clay Center along the Broughton Road at the Martins. We learned about drip irrigating as well as other types of irrigation and also we shown some of the "mash" they feed cattle that is the residue from an ethynol plant. Don even had Tasty Pastry rolls for us - see the boxes on the tailgate.
Next we went to Willow Creek Dairy north of Linn. The manager showed us the whole operation and it was a much better tour than you would get if you were with a bunch of kids.
The days are really packed, but it has been good information. I think tomorrow is around Manhattan and we are done at 5pm. Thank goodness. I need a rest. It is summer for goodness sakes!
