    CROP UPDATE: Take note of how garden grew

    Tuesday, December 16 2014 9:35 AM EST2014-12-16 14:35:12 GMT
    This past growing season was a good one for most gardeners. Crop farmers harvested one of the best corn crops on record, and vegetables responded positively to the great growing conditions as well. This year, we had moisture throughout the summer, and July was one of the coolest on record, which undoubtedly led to the bounty.

    FARM & FIELD: Pasture-based dairies provide management, lifestyle choices

    Rotational grazing lets cattle go out and graze one pasture for a certain length of time, then rotate to another. This way, cattle can eat just the most nutritious parts of the plant, and grass has time to rest and rejuvenate. Stacey Hamilton, University of Missouri Extension state dairy specialist, says pasture-based dairies make economic sense for farmers.
