At our operation, we are gearing up for weaning time. That means hauling manure, getting the working chutes set up, lining up the appropriate vaccines, updating records and preparing to have calves in the feed yards once again. With harvest and weaning just around the corner for many of us, I thought I would take the opportunity to hear your stories before everyone gets really busy outside. So, what's going on in you neck of the woods? What concerns do you have about the agriculture industry today? My goal has always been to meet the needs of the readers, and I need to hear from you!
