Project by Jefferson County Student Featured in Kentucky Farm Bureau's "Science in Agriculture" Displays
Louisville, KY (November 30, 2017) – Jefferson County student, Caroline Bates, was among the 12 students selected from across the state to display their agriculture science projects at this week’s Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) annual meeting in Louisville.
Caroline displayed her science project as part of the KFB annual meeting tradeshow. Her project, “Food Waste Reduction,” explored how to reduce food waste to help the agriculture economy and environment.
She was awarded $125.00 and a certificate of recognition for her participation at the state level.
The Science in Agriculture program was developed by KFB as a way to encourage teachers to incorporate agricultural themes into their classroom instruction. Projects are evaluated on categories such as creativity, skill, clarity and thoroughness, agricultural accuracy and scientific thought.

Sometimes, the best way to see more clearly, and perhaps appreciate more, a specific issue that is close to home, is to observe if from a different perspective, in a different place.
- Staying out of the Weather: Compost bedded pack barns could eliminate some wintertime hassles

Since the end of last December, several head of a beef cattle herd on the David and Mollie Appelman / ATM Farm, were kept in a compost bedded pack barn throughout the winter months, rather than out in the wet winter weather. The idea led to dryer feeding conditions, less water/waste run-off, easier working conditions, and happier cows.

Being lucky enough to live in a rural area, I have grown accustomed to my farm neighbors and their implements moving back and forth on our roads. In fact, I have gone along for a ride or two with them, on occasion.
