  • The classified ad in the newspaper read: “Lost: one dog, brown hair with several mange spots. Right leg broken due to auto accident. Rear left hip hurt. Right eye missing. Left ear bitten off in a dog fight. Answers to the name Lucky.”

    Lucky? Sure, the dog was lucky to have an owner who loved it very much. It did not matter about the blind eye and the bad leg. The owner loved it so much that he would seek after the dog and pay someone to find it.

  • Last week, LaRue County High School sophomore Casey McMillen spent his fall break harvesting sorghum.

    His family’s rediscovery of the nearly-lost art of sorghum-making tied in with an FFA project for McMillen, who is working on his State FFA degree. To obtain his State FFA degree he must earn or invest $1,500 or work 1,000 hours. He must also be an FFA member for three consecutive years and complete state, national and regional requirements.

    After experimenting with a few other activities, McMillen decided sorghum fit the bill.

  • Corn, soybean and wheat prices have all done well this summer. As a result, grain farmers may be considering planting more wheat this fall and follow with a soybean double crop. However, double crop soybeans are more susceptible to summer drought, and typically yield about 20 percent less than full season soybeans. Let’s consider an example of a planting decision and possible implications using a UK Ag. Economics web based decision aid.
