The July meeting of the Logan County Farm Bureau Federation was held at the Schochoh Community Center. The Farm Bureau Young Farmers grilled pork chops to complete the pot luck meal enjoyed by all. Several elected officials or their representative were in attendance. 

This annual picnic event gives Farm Bureau an opportunity to express their appreciation to those who hold office, for the work they do on behalf of farmers and agriculture in general. The elected officials were given the opportunity to speak on subjects that were of interest and concern to those present.

Following the meal, Pres. Jeremy Robertson conducted the FB July business meeting. Preliminary plans were made for the annual meeting scheduled for 6:00 p.m. Sept. 17 at the Extension office.

KFB President Mark Haney's Statement on Waters of the U.S. Rule

As we move forward in our advocacy efforts related to water resource issues, I want to point out that the revised Waters of the US (WOTUS) rule has been posted on the Federal Register. I can’t tell you how important it is to have our voices heard regarding this matter, and how vital it has been for our farmers and ranchers to get this revised rule.

Mark Twain once said, “If you don’t like the weather in New England, just wait a minute, it’ll change.” Since he first spoke those words, many other regions and states across the country have adopted that saying, including Kentucky, where it seems to be truer during this winter season than ever before.

For some reason the changing of the seasons has always fascinated me. Watching the colors of the earth change from summer to fall to winter and on to spring, is such an amazing gift the good Lord has given us.
