A quick safety reminder when working with anhydrous ammonia!

PSA/SoapBox Rant

If you, someone you love, the neighbor, the guy I saw between Franklin and Shelbyville on 44 this morning are changing anhydrous tanks without goggles or gloves you should have a little more respect for yourself and your family!

You are not invincible or in any more of a hurry than anybody else! I have seen up close major and minor anhydrous burns-they will make a grown man cry, along with his wife, children, parents!

Rural King, Tractor Supply, Amazon, your anhydrous dealer—-all these places you can get a simple pair of safety gloves and goggles! It takes less than 5 seconds to grab them as you climb out of the tractor and put them on!

Love, Jent

Member Monday!

This week we have Loyal Cutforth.

“I am retired. We rent our farm land to good friends and neighbors. We have fruit trees. I love to garden. I grow tomatoes, green beans, melons and sweet corn. We preserve and freeze the fruit and vegetables. We share tomatoes and melons with friends who don't have a garden. We put a small vegetable stand in our front yard. There are no prices. We encourage a donation, and people are very generous.
We have been Farm Bureau members for over 40 Years and served on the Delaware Co. board for over 30 years. Being members has allowed us to meet a lot of people throughout Delaware county, and many have become friends. We appreciate Farm Bureau for its strong support of agriculture and of traditional family values.”

Member Monday!

Joe Russell is a sixth generation farmer, he follows in the footprints of his family that started farming in Indiana Territory in 1810. Today Joe and his wife Sharon, grow corn and soybeans with his two sons in northern Delaware County. Joe joined Farm Bureau in 1977 because the collective wisdom and voices of the members help solve problems beyond his farm. He’s been on the board for many years and honored to serve as an officer for many of those years. “My membership in Farm Bureau is one of the best investments I’ve made for my farming operation.”

This week, we have Joe Hamilton, a member since 2014. Joe raises corn, soybeans, and a few cattle around the Cowan area. Here’s what he had to say about farming and being invoked in Farm Bureau!

“Farming is both challenging and rewarding every day. I enjoy using technology to solve problems while improving the efficiency of our operation. My goals include better soil health and responsible land stewardship.
“Farm Bureau helps me reach policymakers and supports the agricultural community. The next generation of farmers depends on the decisions we make today.”

Long time Farm bureau members, Larry and Vickie Mitchell, pictured here with their grandchildren. “We are thankful for the efforts of Farm Bureau to help us maintain the farm for future generations. Our farm has been in Larry's family since 1836. We are the seventh generation to live here. Our barn is on the Indiana registery for Historic Barns in Indiana it was built in the early 1900's. A few years ago we had a tragic accident of brake failure on the semi and it ran through the West end doing a lot if damage. Farm Bureau helped us to restore it with the help of some Amish friends.”
