Farm Friday

My Farmer using the grain vac to clean out the bottom of  a grain  bin.
This week we have been busy with hauling grain and cleaning out grain bins on the farm.

Here is My Farmer and LP taking a break while cleaning out a grain bin.
This week I personally was busy off the farm by doing some contract work for the Iowa Soybean Association's Ag-Urban Initiative.  I am one of the coordinators for the program and this week we had our Annual Day on the Hill, as well as the leadership class met for the second time this year.  The class is focusing this year on creating some agriculture and food focused programming to disseminate through public television. During the class session the group also went through some leadership training focusing on creating community and effect change, as well as how to articulate relevant success.  Finally one of the class members presented on successes of his home area which has been getting some state-wide attention lately, Sioux County.  I really enjoy working with this program and this dynamic group of people.
