December 5, 2011 Agriculture Column


Lake Region is just around the month (corner) and cannot hardly believe it is that time  of year again.  The older I get the faster things seem to move.  We have a full slate of topics this year and you will find something for everyone to include your spouse.  We also have set aside one day for some gardening tips in the basement of the Memorial building.  They include ideas of what apple trees to plant, how to care for your apple trees and how to control those pesty lawn weeds.  On the ag side you will find many topics to address some issues you may have had this year and also some great strategies to implement this next growing season.  We have changed a little from the way we used to do things to include a noon sponsored meal.  The Armory food line will now be downstairs in the Memorial building.  This will be a great help to alleviate any crowding that occurs in the hallways and this will also allow better access to the commercial booths downstairs.  We have how the basement is setup, which allows greater accessibility to booths, more dining area and a new location of the downstairs meeting room which will reduce noise during the meeting.  You will also see a completely repainted basement that is has a very eye appealing and warm setting.  We will also be serving  a different breakfast menu each morning away from the eggs and sausage we used to have.  We are also changed the guest speaker format this year to allow more time for discussion with Richard Baron (transitioning your estate).  Richard will be the guest speaker the first day and will be in the courthouse meeting room and will last a full 1.5 hours.  This will Mr. Baron greater flexibility in his presentation and less noise during his presentation.  The second day we have lightened the guest speaker from marketing to a very light side with Rodney Nelson (Cowboy poet).  We thought a nice change of pace was in order and Rodney will make anyone enjoy the olden days.  We are looking forward to the new changes and know that you will enjoy them as well.  See you at Lake Region Extension Roundup Tuesday, January 3rd and Wednesday, January 4th 2012.
