BlackjackI dont have that farm anymore,but guys that now do put in some pumpkins,squash and 12 acres of corn[foodplot].

wass roundupped and planted as cockleburr really got in after 2 years of wheat.

lucky went in lATE as hail pretty much nailed half of township.

Started cleaning another of our farms last year about 2 miles south on 1 and am going to keep at getting that one more wildlife freindly next couple years.

It looks like this ethanol boom will be over as surplus is at 7 months now and oil companies are buying out exsisting options and plants to defer need for it.

Boy am i glad to see all the corn for fuel go as quick as it came.

If it gets any major staying power now it will be grasses and other things

The neat part of farm products,especially for gooose hunters is a new Perenial wheat[5 year staying power has been researched and is now ready for some use.

Keep those critters fed.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
