  • Our current life determines our destiny

    Our destiny for the afterlife is determined here and now on this earth while we are alive. Our only hope of heaven is dependent upon what we do with Jesus Christ.

    Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). When we accept Christ as our savior, we make a reservation for heaven. Someone said, “Without Christ life is a hopeless end.”

  • Consider legumes for spring grazing

    Believe or not spring grazing should be here soon. Alfalfa is a high quality, high yielding, and perennial legume and is incredibly versatile under proper management. It can be grown in pure stands or mixtures and can be the best choice for a grass-legume grazing. There are many grazing tolerant varieties.

    Red clover is easy to establish, high yielding, high quality and readily grows in a variety of soils. It provides good summer growth, but is not as drought tolerant as alfalfa. Its main disadvantage is it is short-lived and persists for an average of only two winters.
