To the editor:"Round and round she goes, and where she stops, nobody knows." That should be the headline for Farm News' article "Bearish shock to corn in August's WASDE report." Farmers shouldn't be depending on the roulette wheel of market "supply and demand" touted by most ag economists and ...

To the editor:Back in the time before the 1900's when most farm work was done with horses, mules or oxen, the average farm was about 80-160 acres. There was a farmstead about every quarter mile. That meant there were a lot of families with lots of children. There was a country school every ...
