Project by Union County Student Featured in Kentucky Farm Bureau's "Science in Agriculture" Displays
Louisville, KY (November 30, 2017) – Union County student, Trevor Thomas, 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.
Trevor displayed his science project as part of the KFB annual meeting tradeshow. His project, “Soil Erosion… ,The Good, Bad, and Gone,” explored different soil erosion rates.
He was awarded $125.00 and a certificate of recognition for his 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.

Having grown up working on my grandparent’s farm, I learned at an early age an appreciation of the farming way of life. I was taught the value agriculture holds for my family and the world around me.

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.
