We started off our month by sending two of our chapter officers, Cole Holt and Clay Rogers, to the Kentucky Leadership Training Center for “Rising Sun,” a leadership conference.

    It has been estimated that an average operator will leave from 2 to 4.5 bushels of soybeans per acre in the field (5 to 10% loss). Considering the price of soybeans ($10/bu), reducing losses from 10% to 5% results in a savings of $22.50 per acre. Measure harvest losses (4 seeds per square foot = 1 bu/ac loss) and strive to keep them below 3%.

    Honor, loyalty and commitment; these are values that can be found in the men and women in our armed forces. These are also values that senior Hawk football player Kyle Woosley possesses.

    If you have attended a Hawk football game the last four years, you would notice that, when the Hawks run out to the field before the game, one player, number 14, is carrying the American Flag. The reason is simple.
